Privacy Policy

Open Consent is committed as an organisation to developing the next generation global infrastructure for privacy in 2018.  IN the future, Privacy Policies won’t be needed.  In fact, privacy polices are meant for internal governance of companies and not as notices to people.  That being said.  We want you to know this doesn’t happen over night and for this reason, to start with, we have a privacy policy which can be used as a notice for how we manage your personal privacy.

We are very committed to safeguarding the privacy of our website visitors with transparency; this policy sets out how we will treat your personal information.
