How can a system be genuinely free?

We have looked at this in some depth, as someone has to end up paying for the service that all other individuals receive who pay nothing. So we want to explain how our business model works, so you can understand what we have done.

We believe that selling the data content (like Facebook, Google and Microsoft) is a gross invasion of your private data - and we do not do that. We equate data scanning of your data as the theft of your private information. This is not acceptable behaviour, as part of any business viability model. 

Also, we believe that adverts are a distraction and would be almost as big an invasion of privacy - Google and partners grab your browsing record, and reflect things back to you that reflect your recent searches. We think this is at best rude, at worst it is a dangerous theft of your own shadow, as you cannot know what will be done with it, or when. 

Let's take you through our decision making process:

Our resources are:
  • We own the hardware and software content of our server farm, with capability for up to 100 web server and 25 SQL servers allocated for free delivery. Each web server can handle 1,000+ clients easily. Free services are closely technically managed, so it makes a difference to your service level if you decide to pay £50 a year for the service. 
  • We own the intellectual property of the software you will use (Except of course the T-SQL database).
  • There is unlimited capacity for shared servers on which people pay from £25 a year.
  • There is unlimited storage for those paying £1 a month per Gigabyte. 
  • We have unlimited bandwidth for calculations and transfers paying at £1 per Gigabyte.
  • There are unlimited email sends at £1 per 100 emails sent.
  • and, unlimited telephone support for those who pay. 
All of this is based on 20% of those who set up and use the system (regularly), will decide to pay at least £25 per year - based on usage on shared servers.
So the free installations are paid for by those who decide to pay - it is what you would expect. 

Because we own the hardware, the intellectual property of the software, and have no loans - we can do this, and we can make the software free...so long as we get enough paying customers. We will let you know in a year's time about that. 



 
 
 

We intend to keep the system genuinely free.

Currently, we are actively seeking partners with whom we can continue to make this possible.

We will let you know if that development make progress.
