tsamsoniw writes "Hewlett-Packard, IBM, Amazon, eBay, Microsoft, and Mozilla are among the 20 organizations ranked in the Ponemon Institute's annual survey of organizations that consumers trust most with their privacy. Meanwhile, companies who've made the list in years' past — such as Apple, Google, and Facebook — didn't make the cut.
