Site Help & Support - Donations & Affiliate Links

When we started the site, it was always under the mantra that we would never force banner adverts or pop-up messages onto our users in the name of generating revenue. We want to ensure that continues.

From it's inception and to the present day, the site has remained entirely self funded and self administered, including the hardware, software, bandwidth and development time that goes into making HPC:Factor the site that it is. With the exception of support that we receive from you, the community, the operations of the site are funded entirely by C:Amie, Insurgent and SeanF.

As the demand for downloads increases, power and internet charges rise and hardware needs to be replaced, our costs inevitably go up. So we need your help to continue to exist.

Donations

How to Donate Financially

We have a ubiquitous PayPal donate link. If you would like to donate to the site, you can simply click on this link and it will be up to you how much you donate.

Please Note: Donating values of less than £1.00 will incur between 40% and a 100% processing charge by PayPal. The donations process is not hooked up to an automatic system.All donations are processed manually. As such, donating £0.01 will not trick the HPC:Factor server into unlocking any features for you. If you have a HPC:Factor account and let us know in the notes section, all donations over £10.00 GBP will receive a subscriber level.

To donate a custom amount, please use the form below, or any donate button that is located throughout the website.
