Tor has published a Social Contract, in which it sets out its principles and what its goals are.
The Tor team states that it will never implement front doors or back doors into its projects.
“In our commitment to transparency, we are honest when we make errors, and we communicate with our users about our plans to improve,” it said.
Tor’s commitment to transparency means “everything we release is open and our development happens in the open”.
“At The Tor Project, we make tools that help promote and protect the essential human rights of people everywhere.”
