Well you made more sense of it than I managed. Congrats.

This doesn’t seem like a licensing issue at all to me though - stopping someone spying on your data seems like an issue much too important for a mere license to oversee.

I’ve never understood the whole OSI thing. Why should anyone give a fig that some self-appointed organisation (because frankly, that’s what it is) deems your license worthy of its approval?
