+About the company:<br>
98
+ The Tor Project is a US 501(c)(3) non-profit dedicated to research,
99
+ development, and education about online anonymity and privacy. The Tor
100
+ network's 3000 volunteer relays carry 16 Gbps for upwards of half a
101
+ million daily users, including ordinary citizens who want protection
102
+ from identity theft and prying corporations, corporations who want
103
+ to look at a competitor's website in private, people around the world
104
+ whose Internet connections are censored, and even governments and law
105
+ enforcement. Tor has a staff of 14 paid developers, researchers, and
106
+ advocates, plus many dozen volunteers who help out on a daily basis. Tor
107
+ is funded in part by government research and development grants, and
108
+ in part by individual and corporate donations.
