Transparency Regarding Donations

Written Jun 7, 2016

Hey all, I just wanted to take a second to let you know about a recent donation I received.  This morning I woke up to find a $200 donation from a certain VPN company.  The donation notice didn’t contain any message or expectation, but as to avoid conflict of interest – I’m donating it to charity!

I’m splitting it half and half between the EFF and Child’s Play



You know who you are, and I thank you for your generous contribution, however I think you’ll understand that I can’t accept it as it would create a conflict of interest with my project.

If you like the project and find my work useful, please consider donating – your generous contributions help pay for the hosting, tools, and time I need to do my research and keep the data fresh.  And if you’re a VPN company who honestly wants to contribute… please don’t tell me who you are!
