Who wants to be 🌧 Left out in the Rain? We don’t. Hence we love to 🛠 Implement the Missing Feature or Link that feels like it should have been there in the first place.

Free/Libre Open Source

We publish our software as Free/Libre Open Source licensed under GPL-3.0 to ensure that you have and continue to have the following four fundamental freedoms:

  • the freedom to use the software for any purpose,
  • the freedom to change the software to suit your needs,
  • the freedom to share the software with your friends and neighbors, and
  • the freedom to share the changes you make.

The Foundations of the GPL

While Free/Libre Open Source refers to free as in free speech, not as in free beer, we have chosen

Though we accept ❤Gratuities.


Privacy and Liberty go hand in hand. You should not be forced to willingly or even unwillingly disclose personal data in order to be able to use a software or access information that is important for you. Hence neither our software nor our web pages collect usage data or require registration.

Our web pages are static HTML documents and do not set cookies. They do not contain any JavaScript code, unless it is required to provide a very specific function, e. g. local search, or to demonstrate some code in action.

Our software, e. g. the AudioPick extension, does not track usage data by itself, though you need to be aware that installing an extension from the Chrome WebStore and using it in the Chrome Browser generates usage data which is shown on the Chrome WebStore and Developer Dashboard, e. g. how often the extension is installed. We have opted out of using google-analytics to track and evaluate usage data ourselves. Also note that downloading the extension from GitHub probably leaves a trace, too.

If we get access to usage/user data, e. g. IP or email addresses, it’s most likely unavoidable and we do our best to get rid of unneeded information, e. g. rotate log files of web servers we control. In any case, we do not transfer or even sell any usage/user data to 3rd parties.


That all being said, you may show appreciation for AudioPick by paying a completely voluntary tip. For that purpose we have created a ❤Payment link on Stripe which allows you to give any amount between 1€ and 10€, defaulting to 3€ to keep the processing fee ratio in check.

Sadly, using this link/page for tipping does not work anonymously, e. g. Stripe requires you to enter a valid email address, but we haven’t found a better / more private way, e. g. online cash, to show monetary appreciation over the internet. Hence you should only use the link/page, when you are aware of and agree to its privacy implications.
