About Advertisements on the Kicksecure Website

Kicksecure 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 Kicksecure project;
  • influence the direction of Kicksecure development; or
  • lead to changes in Kicksecure software or website choices (apart from the advertisement itself).

The present list of advertisements includes:

  • Evolution Host: provides system administration advice for the kicksecure.com website.

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 showed advertisements for Kicksecure for related searches.
  • Search engines (YaCy | Qwant | ecosia | MetaGer | peekier): This is a voluntary listing by Kicksecure and no discussions have occurred with any of these services. Also see this forum postarchive.org.

Any future changes will be documented on this page.

Affiliate Policy[edit]

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