About Us

We operate to expose how tracking and profiling from user data had a negative impact on society so that proper political and civil actions can be taken.

2020 sponsorship (spoiler: nothing)

Completely unfunded and broken-voluntary driven. Few organizations helped us in the last years, we produced much more than what we were cover to do, that’s why we keep trying to partner up with like minded organizations.




In 2019 we have been sponsored by:

European Research Council

ALEX is the name of the academic project sponsored, and is host in the University of Amsterdam

DATACTIVE

Our partner and trustee to apply for the Proof of Concept granted by the ERC

NLnet

With a small grant they contributed in help us integrating the semantic analysis, this is a fundamental step to start to add metadata on top of the evidences

Vietsch Foundation

Vietsch Foundation sponsors NLnet in regard of this grant




Past years, since the start of 2016 until 2018

OSD

Formerly know as former opensensordata. Luca Corsato and Andrea Raimondi been the first very sponsor of the project

Data Transparency Lab price

DTL grant every year a price to everyone passing their selections. With these money, less 25,75%, and then less 10% (overhead magic, aha!) we bought our brand design, a few development experiments, and paid expensed that other grantor can't cover. Of course I've to pay VAT over these payment. hey. 25,75% it is already a VAT! yes. of course, twice VAT altought we're intermediated. Long story short? Managing money is the most hunted of the happy problems.

Lush & AccessNow #KeepItOn

Because algorithmic censorship is it something which should be investigated, we get a small sponsorship after Lush sold all the 404-bath-bomb to fundraise against Internet blackouts
