RebornOS
DONATION POLICY

Section 1. Purpose

The purpose of this policy is to establish a formal process for acceptance and
documentation of donations made to the RebornOS Project.

Section 2. Why does the RebornOS project ask for donations?

RebornOS is free of cost and doesn’t generate any direct sort of income. It is entirely
funded by donations and financially supported by its own community of users. We
require donations to keep the RebornOS project running as smoothly as possible.

Section 3. accepted donations

Donations may be offered in the form of credit card, bank, crypto, hardware and or
services and PayPal.

Section 4. what will donations be used for?

      • Sponsorship for upstream events and local RebornOS team and community
        events;
      • Local community costs (e.g. shipping of equipment to the RebornOS team and
        community members);
      • Travel (e.g. coverage of full or part of the expenses for attending an event);
      • Hardware and hosting costs of the RebornOS project.

Section 5. who is deciding on how my donation is used?

RebornOS believes in a democratic approach. The use of donations to fund project-related expenses is discussed by all team members before it’s approved with the exception of emergency use cases that can negatively impact our users.

Section 6. What do I get if I donate?

You will get a big thank you from the RebornOS team and a special role on our forums
and Discord. Since contributions help us keep our servers running and ensure the
availability of updates and features for the RebornOS project.

Section 7. How can I see how the money is spend?

We plan to release transparency reports to show how and where money is spent
including server and other project related expenses.

Section 8. How much should you give?

The donations we receive range from a single dollar to a couple of hundreds. The
important thing for people is to give something, and for us it’s to generate the income
that will let us work and succeed on this project, month after month. If you want to help,
and if you can do so, please make a donation to the project and encourage others to do
so.

Section 9. Can my donation be anonymous?

Yes. You can decide for yourself if you want to donate anonymously or in your name.
We won’t share or publish any details about you, except the amount you had donated in
our transparency report.
