mobile first

The internet has become mobile with 70% - 80% usage on portable devices. We embrace this technological reality by focusing on mobile apps, while still providing interactive maps for browsers as an alternative input option.

we don't track users

As an ethically decision, we have chosen a flexible subscription based model for project costs simply because we never monetize user data, create or sell ad profiles of Citizen Scientists, nor do we include third party trackers in your Citizen Science apps - because privacy matters.

All projects on the SPOTTERON Citizen Science platform are in compliance with the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and allow users to always download a copy or to delete their personal data without compromising the project's data quality.
