I'm looking for a word with a similar meaning as "vegan" in the context of online privacy. Just like a "vegan product" and a "vegan individual":

  1. I'm a [privacy vegan] and try to avoid data mining websites.
  2. Our website is [privacy vegan]. We don't track your activity.

Edit / clarification

A vegan person refrains from eating animal products. A producer can label its products "vegan" for marketing purposes. If I want to market a digital product with the absence of trackers, what word do I use that both is identifiable to persons and makes sense as a marketing term. (Like vegan does)

    What exactly do you think "vegan" means / implies, and how does that relate to issues like data privacy? – FumbleFingers Reinstate Monica Apr 17 at 13:40

    Anglophones in general would not make a connection between a person refraining from eating animal products and a software product "refraining" from tracking web-based users, so the question as posed here isn't really meaningful. – FumbleFingers Reinstate Monica Apr 17 at 14:40
  • ...a few people have adopted the collocation privacy evangelists, which probably has the connotations you seek. – FumbleFingers Reinstate Monica Apr 17 at 16:58

I don’t think you’ll find a single word for this.

As for the personal example, something like the following comes to mind:

As a strong proponent of personal privacy, I...

For a website, you’d usually hear something simple, definitive and unequivocal, such as:

We value your privacy, and (will) never track your activity.

If you include the word ‘will’, you should be certain you’re going to stick to this principle in the future.

I get what you're trying to do, but your analogy is strange. Although vegans themselves prefer to be known for having a plant-based diet, the fact is most people view it as a diet of exclusion, so making a pun on veganism might make people think you reject privacy like a vegan rejects meat, when in fact you're trying to promote it (privacy, not meat!)

Some ways to say you are pro-privacy might be:

  • Privacy addict
  • Privacy aficionado
  • Privacy buff
  • Privacy devotee
  • Privacy fan
  • Privacy fanatic
  • Privacy lover
  • Privacy supporter
  • Privacy zealot

Because those terms apply to people, they don't really work for a website. You could just say your website is pro-privacy, or maybe privacy friendly?
