We're experimenting with ads on Hackster as a way to make our business sustainable and support open source in the long run. We're committed to maintaining a great user experience throughout the site as well as protecting user data. We won't share any visitor data with advertisers. We will also refrain from using personal data in order to display ads, and instead display ads based on context. An exception to this rule is that we may display location-dependent ads (eg: for a local event) based on your location (IP-based).
