Dear SKOS Shuttle visitor

Thank you for your interest in SKOS Shuttle.

SKOS Shuttle was developed and (privately) financed by Semweb LLC.

It is ADS free and it is free to use (inside some limits) as well as definitely low price, compared with other similar best-in-class tools.

In order to develop it to a more mature degree, to get more functionalities, a better usability, but also to keep on financing its location, maintenance and the electricity needed to operate it, Semweb is seeking for funding.

Please consider, it is not just a toy from the internet to use and throw because it is just free or at low cost. Semweb decided to make it low cost in order to allow for a low threshold for many interested institutions (private, educational or NGO) as possible.

The idea behind SKOS Shuttle is supporting enterprises in projects, where you and Semweb can further grow together.

SKOS Shuttle was and is improved thanks to its user's will, skills, time and intention to cooperate/communicate with Semweb every wish but also every issue.

->Thank you for considering this before you start using SKOS Shuttle.<-

Semweb can guarantee an anonimous secured access, but it is basically interested in your experience and would prefer the "personal touch" to the anonimous access.
