Both open source and proprietary code licences assume no responsability
on the inner working of the software. Check ANY software licence.

The program do not use any personal data and the only way to be really
sure for any software is checking the source code.

Proprietary software do not expose any source code so you have to trust
the word of corporations and so obviously one can never be sure.

Good luck with that!

Your colleagues / office are probably looking for someone/some company to
blame for if something goes south...

No offence but that's the corporation way.

But this is just my opinion on that.
This is not an official position of the GIMP DEV TEAM.
