Zotero is an open-source project committed to providing the best research tool available anywhere. Our philosophy is that what you put into Zotero is yours, and one of our founding principles is to make it as easy as possible to take the fruits of your research where and when you want it and to share it how you like–or to choose not to share it at all.
We are a nonprofit organization and have no financial interest in your private information. However, some of Zotero’s advanced features require you to supply us with information; for example, Zotero synchronization requires you to transmit your Zotero library data to our servers. You should note that participation in these services is up to you and can be adjusted at any time in your Zotero preferences.
