  249. About the Free Software Foundation Europe
  250. Free Software Foundation Europe is a charity that empowers users to
  251. control technology. Software is deeply involved in all aspects of our
  252. lives; and it is important that this technology empowers rather than
  253. restricts us. Free Software gives everybody the rights to use, understand,
  254. adapt and share software. These rights help support other fundamental
  255. freedoms like freedom of speech, press and privacy.
  256. The FSFE helps individuals and organisations to understand how Free
  257. Software contributes to freedom, transparency, and self-determination. It
  258. enhances users' rights by abolishing barriers to Free Software adoption,
  259. encourage people to use and develop Free Software, and provide resources to
  260. enable everyone to further promote Free Software in Europe.
