This page is the BizApps Wiki's Sponsorship policy.

We know that 98% of our readers will not support us; they simply look the other way. That is OK as idea of BizApps Wiki is to free share a knowledge about implementation and usage of Business Applications, but you should know that we have costs as well. We minimum need to provide the right infrastructure for the web site as well as to improve quality and develop some new features. Individuals can support us with donations, but if you are company involved in this business, maybe we could share the common interest.

Who is the sponsor?

A sponsorship is a mutually beneficial exchange whereby the sponsor receives value (promote the corporation’s name, image, product or services or other defined values) in return for financial support to the organization. The relationship requires a formal written agreement or confirmation setting out the terms of the sponsorship, including any recognition to be provided to the sponsor, and must be signed by an authorized member of the sponsor and by Tounca LLC manager.

Every company can be our sponsor. The only thing that matters is that we have a common interest - you want to support our organization to provide the best possible services and we will give some credits for it.
