Yesterday we hosted our first-ever all-community webcast. We took your questions live and we’re excited that so many people showed up to both support and question us.
We hope to see you next time If you weren’t able to attend. We’ve archived the video so you can watch it from the comfort of your own
The good news is that we’ll be hosting a webcast every month for the foreseeable future. Our next live webcast will be in late January – we’ll nail down a date soon. We’ll try to find a convenient time for as much of the world as possible. If you want to be notified of our next one, you can of course keep your eyes on the blog, Facebook, Twitter, etc or you can email firstname.lastname@example.org, and we’ll add you to our notification list.

Note: Towards the end of the webcast Bill talked briefly about our Safe Harbor certification and, as promised, we wanted to offer an expanded explanation. Couchsurfing is fully compliant with our EU-US Safe Harbor obligations and treats member data in accordance with those principles. To answer the specific question that was raised, Couchsurfing uses the dispute resolution service TRUSTe for any disputes that come up, rather than individual European DPAs. We have applied the Safe Harbor principles to all of our data practices for all members regardless of geographic region, and so we wanted to have a dispute resolution system that all members will benefit from rather than just those in Europe.
