is a social network, which is owned by its members: the Community


Service Agreement


Preamble
On RoundOF there are no "Terms of Use" as on other platforms. We have a "Service Agreement" instead. With this agreement the operator offers both you as a single user as well as the community of all users services on the platform RoundOF. When you register with RoundOF, you agree with this contract. One thing is clear: You're the customer. The operator is only obliged to you and to other users. There is neither advertisers nor shareholders or investors, whose interests must be taken into account. RoundOF belongs to its users.

Disclaimer
This contract has been phrased by the operator to the best of its knowledge and belief. A revision by a lawyer is still pending. The planned revision is only for legal clarification, the intentions shown here will be retained. Once the revised version is ready, you get another opportunity to accept the contract, or reject it. Also, the original version of the agreement is in german. This english translation is only for informational purposes.

Definitions
  • RoundOF is an Internet platform for communication with friends and other people.
  • Operator is the RoundOF community, represented in trust by Achim Wagenknecht.
  • Users are in this respect you, if you accept this agreement.
  • Community is the community of all users of RoundOF.

    Finance
    RoundOF is financed by its users for one another. Participation is chargeable, but can not be self-paid. Each user can, however, pay for one or more other users. Contributions paid are generally non-refundable.

    Beta
    The project is currently in beta stage. This means: It is not quite finished and there are still errors, but you can already use it and have fun. Despite of the errors RoundOF is already charged, because the payment function is an essential part of the project. A beta test without payment function would make no sense. Please only register if you agree. Payments to RoundOF are non-refundable. During the beta phase lower rates apply.

    Service
    The operator is obliged to provide the best possible performance to its users with the resources available. Nevertheless no guarantee for the safety, function or availability of RoundOF or individual parts can be given.

    Transparency
    The operator will publish its revenue and expenditure of RoundOF regularly at the beginning of the month on RoundOF.

    Profits
    When RoundOF generates profits, these belong to the community. The users decides how the money is to be used. If RoundOF earns no profits, the founder bears the risk.

    Ownership
    RoundOF is owned by the community. As long as the community has no legal form, the project is managed and operated by Achim Wagenknecht as a trustee. Since RoundOF belongs to the the community and not to the operator, it can not be sold. To reinforce the ownership of the Community, the operator is contractually bound to you, and to any other user of RoundOF, to not sell RoundOF. Should he nevertheless sell RoundOF, he pays each member a compensation of 1,000 euros. The community has the right to form an association or a cooperative (german e.V. or e.G.) to take over as a legal body in full control of RoundOF. Other types of companies are not eligible (AG, GmbH, GbR, etc.). The foundation must be paid for by the community. Since RoundOF already belongs to the community, the project can be transferred formally only to the community, not to any other organization.

    Privacy
    The rights to their own contents remain with the user. By using the services of RoundOF, you allow the operator to process your data for this purpose in all requisite types within RoundOF. Also you allow other users (the community) to access your data and distribute your contributions within RoundOF further.

    User Responsibilities
    By your participation in RoundOF, you're bound to use the platform only for legal purposes. This therefore excludes copyright violations, incitement to crime, child porn and every other illegal action. Please inform yourself in doubt about the applicable law. Also please note that RoundOF is ad free. So please do not spam. For infringements individual contributions or complete accounts can be deleted or user rights may be removed from individual accounts. No refund in such cases.
