Preferred clients

  • Small NGO organisations which are working to protect freedoms as described in the ICCPR and/or digital privacy as described in the GDPR.
  • Small businesses and independents with a focus on autonomy enhancing products and services, for example on passing on permaculture practices or on supporting equally privileged, equipotent participants in collaborative goals.

Pricing

IT businesses, especially the security sector, over-charge the public sector and it annoys the %$#@ out of us, hence we set a not-for-profit price point for NGO's, and for everybody else our price is negotiable and depends on state and purpose of client and our personal (financial) state. In some cases where lives are at stake and people already marginalised to the point of having no resources at all, for example in the case of land right defenders for whom there is no funding available, our service can even be for free, just contact us. And in all cases, if learning is required to provide a service, in no way does a client ever pay for such learning hours, only for the actual service.

Selling without the siren song of certainty is a hard sell, not an impossible sell. Those that want to pay a lot for false feelings of certainty and security based on impressive on-the-spot wizardry are better off elsewhere.

Want to know more?

Small organisations or individuals that want service with integrity, to the best of our abilities and to be informed of its limitations, possible errors and omissions, for a decent hourly rate that doesn't rip wallets to shreds, contact us for more information.
