Newspeak

the BBFC said that "the privacy of adult users of pornographic sites should be maintained and the potential for fraud or misuse of personal data should be safeguarded".

Oxford has this: Safeguard (verb) - Protect from harm or damage with an appropriate measure.

So it sounds reassuring but actually is the contrary.
