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 and European 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.

FOR USERS
Craft World is a multi-user virtual world accessible through the internet. Craft can be accessed, under normal circumstances, by users over the age of 18, but there are special regions (school regions that only teachers and students can enter) in which teachers can allow the access of underage students with anonymous accounts.
Throughout the grid (including those sims that run in PC or dedicated servers that have joined the grid, not owned by Craft) the following is not permitted:

Texts and actions that exalt racism and violence or that marginalize a gender or sexual preferences.

Any form of harassment or defamation.

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.

Copybotting (copying without authorization items created by other users) .

Using an account name that is offensive or degrading.   

Informing people about the real life identity of a person or any other personal data without their consent.

FOR TENANTS
Tenants who rent a region can rate it as PG, mature or adult. If a region is ranked Adult it will be moved in the map to a zone dedicated to adult content.
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, without any guarantee to have the old positions and contents again. If the tenant has a backup of the old sim, he can load it in the region by the web management panel.
The tenants can sublet the land for money or free of charge.

FOR OWNERS OF PC SIMS AND DEDICATED SERVERS
The owners of sims on their pc at home or on dedicated servers, joined to the grid have to agree with Craft owners a precise zone in the map in which they can put their regions. These sims can be public or private. The user with his own regions/server can set one private sim against one public sim. These regions can be rated PG, mature or adult.

For adult sims the owners have to agree a different zone in map with Craft-World owners. 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-World abides by the laws regarding privacy, all the data we receive from you is 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. You have 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) but also we can not use or process this data other than for accounting purposes.

RESPONSIBILITY - DISCLAIMER
Craft-World is based on Opensimulator, that is alpha software (still not stable). Entering Craft-World 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 do 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-WORLD TERMS OF SERVICE, YOU ARE NOT ALLOWED TO ACCESS CRAFT.
