3. Lockdown is Openly Operated.
Openly Operated is the highest level of
transparency for a product: everything from company ownership and location, to full third party
We created the Openly Operated transparency
standard because we saw that companies were basically outright lying in their Privacy Policies. Of course,
many companies are closed source or headquartered offshore, so they're usually not caught. However, even
with companies that were actually caught, there would rarely be any kind of penalties. Openly Operated is
way to force companies to provide *proof* of their transparency, rather than just asserting them. You can
read about why we launched Openly Operated here,
and you can see Lockdown's full transparency report here.
