Welcome to frunction.com. This page describes what Frunction is, what it does, and how.
frunction.com (previously, techstuffer.com) aims to be a community primarily focused on digital privacy, security, encryption, cloud storage, web hosting etc. Through its honest opinions and easy to understand guides, Frunction wants to make topics like digital privacy interesting and understandable for everyone. I think that the right way to it is to provide more information. The more information people have, the better they can decide for themselves.
Frunction welcomes contributors who would like to share their opinions about recent events/news or write detailed but simple guides about digital privacy, online safety, encryption etc.
frunction.com uses UpCloud Ltd, a Finnish company, as its hosting providers. All website data is stored and served from their data center in Germany.
Self-hosted instance of Open Web Analytics is used to learn basic information about visitor traffic on frunction.com. This information includes pages visited, source of the visit (search engines, other websites etc.), and total number of visitors. Anonymised IP address (last octet removed) is collected to identify country of visits.
I believe information should be free and open. Content on frunction.com is not hidden behind a paywall. All information is freely and openly accessible to all. Everything that’s free is paid for by someone. If you are getting something for free, then either you are the product or you are using a product that is funded by someone else. I too, have to spend money to operate and compensate the time spent in sharing the information.
To help fund the operations of frunction.com, some articles may include affiliate links to the products that I trust and/or use myself. I do not seek or claim a partnership with any organisation whose product I link to. Inclusion of affiliate links does not influence my decision and I only link to products that I am confident about sharing with my readers. Such links can be text links or banner links.
In addition, there are ads placed by Google AdSense. I have not opted for target-based ads to help protect privacy of the visitors, while allowing ads that are unrelated to your web history.
You do not have to click affiliate links or ads. But if you do, a cookie may be placed on your device by the third-party website. This cookie does not include or track personal information but helps track the purchase – if any.
I do not accept compensation — monetary or otherwise — to recommend a product or put it on top of any list. Opinions and recommendations on Frunction are based on my own experiences. All articles are written with honesty and are unbiased.
If you do not wish to use affiliate links but still appreciate my efforts, you might consider supporting me in other ways.
The trust factor
You should not trust anyone when it comes to the privacy and security of your own data and devices. I do not expect the readers to trust me. My job is to collect and share information and let readers make their own informed decisions.
I can not verify claims of privacy and security made by third-party companies. At the same time, I also do not hide or conceal information. If I know something, I will share it in good faith. If I don’t have enough information to trust a provider, I will not include it in our recommendations.
