About Open Privacy Research Society

About Open Privacy
Open Privacy exists to empower. Through the current generation of centralized technological systems people have lost the power to consent to what happens to them and lost much of their privacy. Nowhere is this felt more acutely then in marginalized communities. Open Privacy's mandate is to build tools for people and for communities, tools that cannot be used against them, tools that give them control.

The Open Privacy Research Society (Open Privacy for short) is a non-profit Canadian group based in Vancouver, British Columbia. We believe that moral systems enable consent. Our society exists to invent, create, build, test, publish, deploy, promote, and to encourage the development of such systems.

Our mission is:
  • To conduct scientific research advancing the area of privacy and anonymity as they relate to computer science and computer security.
  • To create and publish free and open source software that realizes our research and to make this software available and useful to the general public.
  • To promote good privacy and computer security practices through official publications, media outreach, and public speaking.

2022 Fundraising Incentives

Donations of $5 or more receive stickers as a thank-you gift, and $25 or more gets you one of our new sticker sheets! To celebrate our 4th anniversary, we'll even count cumulative pledges since November 2021 towards sticker sheets.

Your donations are what keep Open Privacy independent and user-first. If you give us your shipping address, we'll send you stickers the first (and only first) time your pledge is processed.
Of course, you can leave your shipping address blank or send us a message if you don't want any.  We send them by regular letter mail (so no tracking number) to keep costs down.

T-shirts!
Donations of $50 or more can claim a limited edition Privacy is Consent t-shirt as a thank-you gift! By popular request, these black t-shirts use high quality screen-printing done locally in Vancouver. To help keep costs down, and make sure everyone gets the size/fit they want, we're taking pre-orders this time around. This means there will be approximately a 2 month wait between donation and delivery, while we collect orders and have the shirts made up.
To claim your t-shirt, send us a message after pledging with your size request. Choose from one of:
