As has been our practice, we issue transparency reports reflecting governmental demands for user data that we have received over six-month periods. This report covers demands that we received through the first half of 2015. The first table below includes information on the FISA orders that we received for non-content and content information. The second table provides information on the National Security Letters ("NSLs") that we received for such information. The third table provides information on the legal demands that AOL has received from federal, state, and local authorities in criminal investigations (outside of the national security context). Note that AOL vigorously contests on behalf of our users any demands that we believe are ambiguous or legally defective.
As with our previous transparency reports, the tables below indicate that demands for user data impact less than one hundredth of one percent of AOL accounts. In addition, the number of accounts may not equal the number of individuals impacted, as users may have multiple accounts that are the subject of such demands.
