Hello /r/privacy,

Openly Operated is a new, free standard that lets companies prove exactly what code and infrastructure is running on their servers, creating trust through total transparency. In other words, instead of relying on blind faith in an app’s Privacy Policy, anyone can read the actual code to see what the app and its servers are doing with user data — plus, there’s proof that the code matches exactly what’s in production. We just launched and it was covered in The Verge this morning: https://www.theverge.com/2019/6/18/18682026/openly-operated-user-data-privacy-auditing-standard-announce

The openlyoperated.org website itself is a real life case study of an Openly Operated service that has a built-from-scratch basic CMS and email newsletter (with proof that we can’t access email addresses). It has 100% open source and open infrastructure, and anyone can view the code, infrastructure, audit trails, independent audit reports, and even log into the website’s AWS Console here. Everything is neatly packaged into what we call an “Audit Kit”, which anyone can access. openlyoperated.org’s audit kit is here: https://openlyoperated.org/report/openlyoperated.
