Since we do not charge you to use Ethyk, we cover our costs through other means. Since you deserve to know how this done, what follows is how we make money.
Every time you load a new tab with the Ethyk extension installed, our new tab feature will show up helping you keep up to date on sustainability news and provide tips to help you live sustainably. Also, on each new tab will be an ad to help us generate revenue to continue to improve and build out Ethyk. 20% of that revenue is given directly away to sustainability non-profits!
If you like using Ethyk, we ask that you consider donating to Protect US to help us continue to refine and expand Ethyk.
As a tech company, we know the worries you might have regarding your data. For Ethyk to function on your browser, we require that you allow us to read the page, which means we can see what is displayed so we can find any companies that are certified through our partners. We in aggregate collect the sites our users visit, so we can see where our users browse the internet to find the best next page to expand Ethyk. But we NEVER collect user data that is identifiable to you.
What We Will NEVER Do:
Sell your data to third parties
Require you to pay to use the browser extension
