That's a good question.

The manifesto primarily refers to cloud providers, so I'm not
sure that we can put it into effect ourselves. However, what I
like to do is work on our own privacy policy (which we could
implement), and to hopefully use that as the basis of
with the user data manifesto people in the future.

Also, we can help by doing marketing and promotional work, if there
are announcements that we can recirculate and so on. That would be
good thing to talk to the Engagement Team about.

How about adding a small emblem in the list of account providers (in
Settings -> Online Accounts), for those cloud providers respecting
user data manifesto?

And that emblem could be clickable, opening a browser to the
website, in case users are interested?

Yes; I was also thinking of adding a link to open each provider’s
privacy policy, and potentially prompting the user if they add a cloud
provider whose privacy policy is particularly bad.

That’s what made me wonder whether similar changes could be made in
other modules — hence the suggestion for a GNOME goal. It could cover a
superset of privacy concerns, rather than just User Data Manifesto
compliance in modules.

I’ll try and create a draft goal later.
