Size of the federation

Open Terms Archive is a decentralised, federated ecosystem that publicly records and analyses the terms of services of online services in different languages and countries several times a day, increasing their readability and highlighting their changes. It is designed as a tool to steer platform governance towards increased accountability, improved legislation and stronger regulatory compliance. These numbers give an idea of its growing size.
