Terms of Service page, Copyright, Liability agreements, etc

Hitsunekun 4 years ago updated 4 years ago 2

Hello FN,

I'm asking this on behalf of Musuko42 who brought this to my attention:

And i quote:

"

1 - I can see acceptable use policy and a code of conduct, but I can't see any proper terms of service; no mention of copyright, nor of liability agreements, nor even which legal jurisdiction the site falls under.

2 - Aside from some staff furnames and email addresses, I can't find any details on the identity of the site owners. Whois offers no clues.

These two points give me the impression of a worrying lack of professionalism, and it disturbs me that so many furries are eager to throw their intellectual property at a site that has no clear statement of what they'll do with it, and no confirmation of who owns the site.

"

I checked myself and in fact I cannot find those anywhere, so I would like to propose as an improvement for the server to add pages with the relevant information before finishing beta (or before since you're already hosting user content).


Thank you

Heya -


There are several items missing currently from our site policies, including a full Privacy Policy, information regarding what rights you give us when you upload your work, along with an "About" page giving information on the site, who owns/runs it, and why we decided to build it.


We have drafts of our Acceptable Upload Policy, Code of Conduct and About page that are more developed than the ones currently on the site, and hope to be able to spend some time getting them up to a good standard for publishing soon.


You're right - these are totally essential to trusting your content to any site; and we'll be working to get them finished, double checked and on the site soon.

Thank you!. I'm glad you're fixing that.


I forward Musuko42's answer too:

"That's a really good response! Please pass on my thanks, and perhaps ask them to contact me when they have all that up and running, so I can give their site another look (benjamartin@gmail.com or here [Inkbunny], or FA).

I'm still a little concerned that they went live before getting those important details established. But I'm happy to wait and see what they do in future."
