How does Ghostery make money from the browser extension?

We rely on Ghostery users who opt-in to participate in a feature called Ghostrank®, which sends us anonymous information about the data collection technology they see, and where they see them. We take that information, add our analysis, and sell it to companies to help them audit and manage their relationships with these marketing tools. None of the information we share is about our users, nor is it stored in a way that could be used to trace back to our users.

Ghostrank® is off by default, meaning you can use Ghostery without sharing anything with us if you prefer. (But please opt-in! It is how we keep Ghostery free and continue to make it the best tool out there!)
