Technology Approach

We deliver services that are built for and server everyone equally. Both processes and technology are used to prevent, detect, respond, solve, and mitigate any issues that may present themselves within our services.

  • Examine metadata and restrict objectionable content
  • Conduct periodic reviews of search and ranking algorithms
  • Test and perform adjustments to suppress objectionable word associations and content
  • Enable customer reporting and feedback opportunities
  • Obtain external input from third-party consultants
