To be hosted on our network, Websites (“site”s) and Sub-Networks (“network”s) have to meet a range of requirements before public access to said site is granted. Please note that if you wish NerdGautica to host your website or network, none of these are considered optional.
- Each Website has to provide
- Said responsibility falls down to the administration of whichever network it is on in case of necessary updates being requested by the site’s administration, yet not being made by the network’s.
Each site has to provide a legal disclosure page providing contact data to those responsible for the site’s content, the site’s operator and a reference to NerdGautica as provider and, if applicable, the hosting network’s main site.
Each site has to provide a contact form to contact the administration team directly as well as a contact form dedicated to legal inquiries notifying the network’s administration as well.
Further requirements for networks
To allow proper operation of each network, the domain of a network has to be managed by NerdGautica.
Whilst having an own domain is optional for sites, a network has to bring its own top-level-domain for technical reasons.
Line of responsibility
In case of any site being in violation to European laws (specifically including copyright laws) the following chain of responsibility is enforced:
- The violating site’s administration team
- The hosting network’s administration team
- NerdGautica’s administration team
In case of any site being in violation to these terms, the hosting network is held responsible and, since otherwise most network administrators won’t really “give a shit”, the whole network may be shut down because of one site in violation. If the site is hosted on NerdGautica’s primary network, the site administration itself is held responsible.
Violation of said requirements
In case of any violations of said requirements, NerdGautica will take any violating site or network offline at it’s own discretion and block any administrative access to the website until the issue has been resolved.
In case of amassed violations regarding a site or network, NerdGautica reserves the right to take it down “for good”.
The decisions of NerdGautica’s administration team regarding seizure of services because of violations to those terms are deemed final and not a matter of debate.
Changes of these requirements
The requiremets listed above may change without prior notice and at any time. Each site and network administrator is responsible to check these requirements periodically and, if necessary, adjust their site to changes within a month. Any site and network being in violation of changed terms after said adjustment period will face the consequences stated above.
