About Advertisements on the Whonix Website

From Whonix

Whonix logo

Readers may have noticed that each documentation chapter has several advertisements in the footer. To remove all doubt, advertisements do not:

  • result in monetary compensation for the Whonix project;
  • influence the direction of Whonix development; or
  • lead to changes in Whonix software or website choices (apart from the advertisement itself).

The present list of advertisements includes:

  • None.

The past list of advertisements includes:

  • Fosshost: fosshost.org was a non-profit organization that provided hosting services to the open source community. Fosshost provided a stage server for Kicksecure.
  • Jobble: link exchange. It shows advertisements for Whonix for related searches.
  • Search engines (YaCy | Qwant | ecosia | MetaGer | peekier): This is a voluntary listing by Whonix and no discussions have occurred with any of these services. Also see this forum postarchive.org.
  • Evolution Host: provided system administration advice for the whonix.org website.

Any future changes will be documented on this page.

Guidelines for Advertising on whonix.org[edit]

  • no targeted ads
  • no tracking
  • no spying
  • no loading of web content from third party pages
  • just text and images
  • advertisements marked as advertisements
  • no JavaScript

Affiliate Policy[edit]

This is only a consideration for a hypothetical future situation. Example: a VPN provider would offer sponsorship if Whonix would provide a wizard for easily setting up VPN [trial] accounts.

  • no marketing lies
  • wizard for easily setting up [trial] accounts
  • easily replaceable with other vendors
