Terms of use

pinnet.eu aims to provide a helpful and safe environment for all users to express themselves in informative, communicative or creative ways. In order to ensure safety on the platform, a few agreements are necessary:

1) Anonymity: You may use pinnet without disclosing any personal information. Nevertheless, all participants are urged not to allow inflammatory or defamatory statements. We as operators will remove any racist, defamatory, violence glorifying or illegal content without prior warning. However, we are dependent on your help or hints. By default we do not perform a check of posted contents.

2) Liability: Content creators guarantee that they will not publish content that violates applicable laws. Posting illegal content may result in criminal prosecution.

3) Inappropriate language: Submitted posts that are abusive or offensive may be automatically filtered. Suggestions for the spam filter can be submitted here.

4) Authentication: Advanced features may only be available if users responsible for a board register and verify with a valid e-mail address. Registration with a temporary email address is not permitted.

5) Deletion periods: Anonymous boards are automatically deleted after 30 days of inactivity. If there is no activity after creation, the boards will be removed after 7 days. Boards associated with a free user account are removed after 90 days of inactivity. User accounts must be confirmed within 3 days or the board will switch to an unattended (anonymous) mode with reduced functionality. Trash will be deleted after 7 days regardless of account status. Email addresses for daily recap subscriptions must be confirmed within one day or the subscription will be cancelled.

6) Availability: There is no guarantee of a permanent availability of the platform. If the operational safety of pinnet.eu is endangered by excessive use, the operator may take measures without prior warning. This also includes a functional restriction or deactivation of the system.

7) Access to contact details: Board owners have the right to see which recipients have subscribed to the daily summary.

8) Other use of contact information: pinnet uses email or contact data to handle system-specific processes (e.g. password resets or sending summaries to subscribed users) or to communicate major changes regarding the system (downtimes or similar). Contact information will not be shared with third parties.

9) Updates to terms of use: These terms of use may be adapted at any time to meet the necessary regulatory requirements. However, the introduction of unannounced fees or the transfer (sale) of data collected during use for the purpose of monetisation is excluded.

10) Costs: The use of pinnet.eu is free of charge until further notice. We do not currently plan to display advertisements; however, such measures may be taken in the future to cover costs.
