I do not speak for the R Foundation but I believe you are not aware that 
R is a computer language for statistics biostatistics and (scientific) 

- R itself does not collect data.
- Security policies are left to the users.
- You can program whatever you want since R is Turing equivalent, GDPR 
or ADA compliant or not. It's up to the users/developers to comply to 
laws. (I hope they do.)

Regarding this, R is pretty much the same as, for instance, C, C++, 
Fortran, etc. And just like those languages R is used by companies and 
other institutions, government or private, that enforce strong security 

Hope this helps,
