Helping and supporting
Swisscows earns money through data-safe advertising. This means: as soon as something is searched for with Swisscows and advertisements are displayed, revenue is generated through these advertisements. This is used to build up Swisscows and to finance further projects like Swisscows VPN and TeleGuard. Since Swisscows displays anonymized advertisements, the advertisements are limited because they are not displayed according to the user's interests, but only for the particular search term. So that we can still cover our costs, we would be very grateful for your support. But we don't just want to protect against the dangers on the Internet, we want to make a visible difference and actively support social projects. That's why part of the advertising revenue and your donations will be used to actively change society, and we need support to do that.
