Technically, their website[0] states "Absolutely NO Backdoors: No
backdoors with our encryption for any individual, organization or
government."

This only refers to the encryption, not anything else. I would expect
Zimmerman and Callas to not put backdoors in their encryption. I wonder
about everything else related to their services. As they are still in
private beta, I'm giving them a huge benefit of the doubt for now. The
future could be bright.
