Can the data change over time? Are you going to update them?

We update the data once a year following the release of the new annual reports or we eventually correct the mistakes originated from the transcription (we do not correct the mistakes in the annual reports because we respect our source). Within our possibilites, we try to add also smaller political parties and the data coming from the previous years. However, PolitickeFinance.cz is a nonprofit project and its onward working and updating is directly dependent on the obtained grants and donations. If you like what we do, we would be happy when you could support us by a contribution. (the widget is in the footer). It is impossible to do even a nonprofit project free of charge.
