Ad free

The Runbox email service is absolutely ad-free. Some free services not only display ads next to your email, but analyze your messages so that they can show related ads in your web browser. Some services even put ads at the end of your email in the message body. You don’t see them when you write your message, but they appear in what your recipient sees.

Runbox is entirely neutral and clean, while other services put more and more effort into tuning their ad offerings. That is how they make money.
Runbox protects your privacy

We are located in Norway and is regulated by strong privacy legislation that protects your data. We enforce a strict Privacy Policy that ensures no one but you can access your email.

Norway is a pioneer in this area, and in 1980 was the first country to establish an independent body to enforce the personal data legislation from 1978. You can read more about this at (The Data Inspectorate). Norway also enforces strict legislation for consumer rights.
Runbox protects your personal information

We will never use the contents of your messages or other personal data in any other context. Some other companies will, and if you read their terms and conditions carefully, they reserve the right to use, reproduce, and publish content you send through their services.
Runbox is value driven

At Runbox, we are committed to conducting our operations and our business in an ethical manner that centers on our customers and the environment.

We treat our customers with respect, and don’t try to “lock in” users like some companies do — instead we offer maximum flexibility and go out of our way to give you exactly the service you want.

We work to decrease our impact on the environment in every part of our operation: Our server park is entirely hydro powered, we use “green servers” where possible, and make extensive use of telecommuting.
