  • Balance the relationship between Frogans site publishers and end users, by protecting end-users' interests, including their privacy, when designing new creative functionalities needed by Frogans site publishers.
  • Ensure that the Frogans technology remains both secure and simple, by carefully reviewing all decisions to be taken at any level as part of the permanent innovation of Frogans as a medium.
  • Develop specifications, implementations and policies as a coherent whole, so as to ensure the stability of Frogans as a medium for all categories of users worldwide (such as end users, content publishers, developers, and hosts).
  • Foster employment, innovation and economic development, by providing all stakeholders, including entrepreneurs, with an open, stable and long-term environment for developing and succeeding in their initiatives on top of the Frogans technology.
