TOS

Welcome to Craft World. Craft World offers its services (both with and without fee) within the following rules and social conventions of the netiquette and the laws of our relative countries.
Craft is an enterprise managed by a company that has its headquarters in Sardinia (GRAM di Raffaele Macis) so it operates within the Italian laws.
However, to avoid misunderstandings in some specific fields of virtual life, we have to point out some rules of community life and some things that are not allowed in Craft or are only allowed in particular circumstances.
You must agree to these simple rules if you want access our services, otherwise it is not permitted to access Craft.

  • Any references to child pornography (we warn you that we are obliged to report any child pornography content to the Italian authority to legally pursue this crime, even informing the Interpol).
  • Griefing, in any way. Wearing too many avatar prim attachments or using malicious scripts (like automated prim replication, as an example) are considered to be griefing too.
  • Copybot.

  • To inform people about the real life identity of a person without their consent.

FOR TENANTS
Tenants who rent a public region can rate it as PG or mature. Those who rent a private region can rate it also as adult sim.
Payments must be punctual. If we do not receive a payment, we will suspend a sim 7 days after the expiration day. After 20 days the sim will be closed.
We do not guarantee to preserve a backup of the closed sims.  After 20 days the tenant can order a new sim, or quarter sim, without any garantee to have the old positions and contents again. If the tenant has a backup of the old sim, he can send it to us and ask to restore it in the new sim.
The tenants can not sublet the land for money but they can give land free of charge.

FOR OWNERS OF PC SIMS AND DEDICATED SERVERS
The owners of sims on their pc at home, joined to the grid, must not close the access to the sim and can only rate them as PG or mature. Only six sims on a pc at home is permitted per user, megaregions will be considered on a case-by-case basis.


The owners of dedicated server can join the grid without a fee for a maximim of six sims. These sims can be public or private. The user with his own server can set one private sim against two public sims. Public sims must be rated PG or mature, private sims also adult.

To put more than six sims, the owners of dedicated servers must pay a contribution of 5 euros a 4 month period per each of the more sims.
These extra sims can be private and can be rated PG, mature or adult.
Adult sims must be islands and with closed access. The owner of these sims can not sublet land for money, but can give land free of charge.
Owners of pc sims and servers must obey the rules above about rating.

PRIVACY
Craft abides by the laws regarding privacy, all the data we receive from you are just what we need to accomplish the service or to meet the accounting requirements. The data about your e-mail address, your real life identity or other personal data will be never displayed, revealed, shared, rented or sold to anyone else. They only can be disclosed by court order. The Italian law grants you the right to ask us at any time about the data we have on you, and how we use it, and also to delete your data. However, we can not delete the data we have used for accounting purposes (for invoices).

RESPONSIBILITY - DISCLAIMER
Craft World is based on Opensimulator, that is alpha software (still not stable). Entering Craft you must know and accept that we can not ensure continuous, error-free, secure or virus-free operation of the service (the virtual world, your account or the website) and you understand that you shall not be entitled to refunds or other compensation based on failure of the service or loss of data.

GRID ADMINISTRATORS CAN ACCESS PRIVATE SIMS
Grid administrators, for Italian laws (as also reported by a few recent verdicts related to forums, that can be compared to virtual worlds) are responsible for the contents the users put as well, and are obliged to moderate them. For these reasons grid administrators have access to private regions, in full respect of discretion and privacy. Regions that does not allow access to grid administrators (by changing default configuration of OpenSim for Craft) will be deregistered from the grid.

RECALL: IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THE RULES OF CRAFT TERMS OF SERVICE, YOU ARE NOT ALLOWED TO ACCESS CRAFT.
