We use different community based websites during our research, both in finding new eligible brand names, as in the verification procedure.
Firstly, there are Wikipedia, Openstreetmap, etc. Secondly, we use social media like Twitter, Facebook, Reddit, to verify our data.
We support the community based websites in two ways: by returning our data to their services, and by supporting them financially.
We share out information back to the community.
We offer financial support to different opensource movements. See our annual reports for an overview.
