About Svenn

Svenn is a small application that runs locally on your computer. It is fully compatible with Windows XP, Vista, and Windows 7, as well as Mac OS X 10.4 or higher.

At no time during this process will your email list be sent to Change.org. Rather, this application encrypts your email list locally on your computer and only sends the encrypted version to our servers for processing and suppression. And because Svenn is an Adobe Air application, its source code is entirely available for inspection by anyone at your organization that wishes to verify what it is doing.

Svenn's name comes from the idea that your organization's members compared with all Change.org users represents a kind of Venn diagram known as a 'suppression' file, since we suppress those people from any new supporters that you recruit on Change.org.
