Hide Confluence Categories

We have a confluence server instance that serves as a repository for all documentation for vendors who are developing products through our organization.

The problem is, the vendors who do business with us are competitors of each other. Our corpsec does not want the vendors to know WHO is doing business with us.

Confluence does a great job of exposing these vendors to each other through Categories and Labels.

If we use any vendor name to label a page or categorize a space, any user can view the list of vendors currently doing business with this.

So far my research has revealed no solution, and in speaking to the Confluence PM's at summit, they have no plans to control categories or labels via permissions.

Are there any plugins that allow the category name to be hidden unless the user subscribes to a space that is labeled with that category?

So fare I've played with RefinedTheme, and while it claims to do this, it actually displays ITs category names front and center at the top of the page.

I can't imagine I'm the only company with this problem...

Appears to still be an open request for this feature:  https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONFCLOUD-43563

Other than that, I've only seen site wide modifications documented via:  https://confluence.atlassian.com/confkb/how-to-hide-elements-in-confluence-using-css-or-javascript-313458894.html

Perhaps you can use a combination of these if RefinedTheme lets you modify style sheet on a more per page instance.
