Here you can support us

Hello dear data protectors,

I am pleased that you have found your way here and that you belong to the „crazy madmen“ who are also interested in data protection / privacy and freedom. Great respect for that! Due to my passion for data protection, I like to invest a lot of time in the project to fight for our values. The result is many contributions that shake, help and inform. As a student I also have to bear the costs for the operation of this website besides the time aspect. It can get tight at the end of the month. Therefore I am pleased about energetic support of my readers.

1. Follower Power

One way to support me and the privacy scene is to network with each other. Sounds banal, but don’t forget: Together we can achieve a lot. Alone we are like raindrops, together we form the stream of change.

You can follow me on the microblogging service Mastodon (like Twitter) and on the image service Pixelfed (like Instagram). Privacy related topics that are close to your heart can be discussed in my XMPP group. There you can also send us topic suggestions. For fans of this site there is the RSS feed. If you follow this feed, you will not miss any valuable contribution on this website in the future.

2. Affiliate programs: Order and Donate

Why Partner Programs? Running the website costs a lot of time and money. Not everyone is willing to donate for media offers like the website „“. Therefore partner programs offer the possibility that you support the work for privacy and liberty financially besides with your order, without additional costs to you thereby arise. The partners were selected with care and few partner links were set 🙂

Invoicing will then take place by arrangement on an hourly basis.

Depending on the amount of donations, I can increase the number and quality of articles and e.g. start new audio & video offers (podcast etc).

Financial targets: What happens to the revenues?

The work on this blog takes a lot of time. I like to bring them to 😀 My goal is to increase the number and quality of articles and to create new multimedia offers. However, I still work while I’m studying. Therefore your support helps me. The more independent I am of the earned income, the more time I can invest here.

7. Future [Planning 2020]

Whoever does what he already can always remains what he already is.“ – Henry Ford (Citation)

The world’s spinning and I’m moving too. That’s why I constantly think about new realizable projects, which can be realized soon. I’m really keen on audio and video offers and can imagine very well to bring out my own merchandising articles. New articles are being worked on. Be curious what the future will bring. I am glad that you accompany us on this way 🙂
