CHATONS – kittens in french – is the Collective of Hosters Alternative, Transparent, Open, Neutral and Solidarity. This collective aims to bring together structures offering free, ethical and decentralised online services in order to allow users to quickly find alternatives that respect their data and privacy to the services offered by GAFAM (Google, Apple, Facebook, Amazon, Microsoft). CHATONS is a collective initiated by the association Framasoft in 2016 following the success of its campaign De-google-ify Internet.

COVID-19 : During periods of lockdown, the CHATONS collective mobilizes to provide those in need with online tools to enable continuity of social contact between individuals and educational continuity for students through a simplified access portal to online services without registration and addressing the most common needs.

While living in an exceptional situation, we don't have to surrender our personal information to multinational digital companies. As our lives have become heavily digitalized during the crisis, we believe it is important to always use services that respect our digital privacy regardless of the circumstances.

It happens on entraide.chatons.org.

We invite everyone who can to come and contribute to the CHATONS collective. Whether it's to help building infrastructure, communicating to the public, or supporting users, all contributions are welcome.
