How often can I click to donate?

Although we would love to allow our users to click as often as possible, our agreements with the sponsors state that only one click per unique IP address counts per calendar day. Our calendar day begins at midnight US Pacific Time. Extra clicks beyond this do not count. This may mean that multiple people sharing a single Internet connection count only as one click per day, depending on their IP configuration.


Do I have to do anything other than click for my donations to count?

No. All that is required for a donation to count is that you click on the Click to Donate graphic on our main page and then fully load our Thank You page. The graphics on the page do not need to be downloaded to count, so non-graphical browsers can still donate.


Are cookies required for donations to count?

Our site doesn't drop any cookies of its own. Sometimes our advertisers will include a cookie with their banner outside of our control. These cookies are not required for the donation to count.


In what languages is this site available?

Currently, this site is available in English only. We are seeking volunteers who can accurately translate any or all of this site into additional languages. Please contact us via our contact information page if you'd like to volunteer.


What potential conflicts of interest exist with this site?

We can't think of any. None of the team members is aware of a personal, religious, monetary, political or other conflict of interest in their own lives, and as a whole we are not aware of any conflict of interest between this site and its goals. As stated on the About Us page, two of the team members are related and have volunteer experience with FAKE, but we do not believe this has any conflicting effect on this site or its mission.


What is this site's privacy policy?

Our privacy policy is spelled out in detail on the Privacy Policy page.


What is this site's spam policy?

While we appreciate that people may wish to spread word about this site, we request that you only do so amongst people you know, and even then with respect for people who may not be interested. Please do not send out massive emails or other communications (such as newsgroup posts) that could be construed as spam, or unsolicited bulk email. Such actions only hurt us and diminish our goals. Instead of employing a recommendation or tell-a-friend service on this site, we encourage people to send their own emails as they feel necessary, or perhaps to mention our site in a regular signature. Please try to use non-invasive, non-offensive means of promoting our site. You may link to us using the information in the next question/answer.


May I link to this site?

Yes! We would appreciate links, although we do not run a reciprocal link program. If you have a site with information that pertains to widgetry and you'd like us to include it on our Links page, please contact us with the details.

In linking to our site, we ask that you link only to the home page or the widget information page. Please do not link directly to our Thank You page, as this may prevent donations from counting. You may use any of the site-owned graphics for your link, such as the banner at the top of every page or the donate button on the home page.
