Privacy in Lagatos and Lagatos Browser
In short, Lagatos uses Sendgrid.com for transactional emails. Mailchimp for marketing emails.
Within the Lagatos Browser, we do collect data on browsing history. But it is anonymized and not sold to third parties. Browsing history is exclusively used for the caching service. Which you pay for in your monthly subscription. In addition, we do not cache private data. For example, we do not cache or visit gmail.com links. But do cache wikipedia.org.
Will I loose my data when I upgrade the Lagatos Browser?
No, you will not loose your data (files in your Library) if you upgrade or downgrade your Lagatos Browser.
How are you different than Brave Browser?
Brave Browser endorses ethical advertisements. And makes revenue from advertisers who adhere to their privacy measures in terms of selling your data in the browser. They then allow you to be paid for the data the advertisers took on you. In addition, they allow you as a user to tip content creators. Your earnings are in the form of rewards. Given in the form of a speculative cryptocurrency.
Lagatos Browser is not an advertisement platform. We do not sell your data to third parties. Instead we monetize through the paid option of our browser.
How so? The Lagatos Browser turns your laptop into a local server. And you either (1) store other people's website and get paid for doing so or (2) you host your own content. And get paid for every download and view of the content you hosted.
We pay everyone on the platform in a stable cryptocurrency called Dai. Dai can always can be redeemed for USD. Not speculative. Lagatos goal is to create circular economies. And foster economic mobility. Rather than giving the majority of the money to corporations or advertisers.
