That’s out of scope of this group IMO.

joindiaspora.com is just a Diaspora installation incidentally run by the founders. Nothing the community has any control about.

Sean, as far as a ToS/PP, I have been told that Diaspora Inc had worked with a privacy expert from Stanford? What happened with those efforts? Could you please comment on this, I would love to see us moving forward also on this issue.


(altruism) #5

Jonne, I understand your point, but I think it would be great to have a ToS and PP that is not “property” of Diaspora inc but of the COMMUNITY. If I set up a pod tomorrow I would like to have a ToS and a PP, but maybe I do not have the time nor the knowledge to write those documents all by myself.


(altruism) #6

By the way Jonne, I thinfk most people here (including myself) know that joindiaspora.com is just one Diaspora installation.


(altruism) #7

And as there is no Diaspora Foundation, not yet, that is why I have to speak in terms of Diaspora Inc and joindiaspora.com. The community is my scope, that is why I am here.


(Jonne Haß) #8

Your proposal is “Add ToS and PP documents to joindiaspora.com”. We can vote for it as much as we want, we have no control about it.


(Jonne Haß) #9

If you really meant “Create general purpose TosS and PP documents for podmins to use” you should’ve said so.


(altruism) #10

Jonne, you have a point, that is a better.

Just for everybodys information: You can find German ones here: https://github.com/geraspora/german-terms-of-service

You can enter your suggested PP and ToS right on the new site http://diaspora.openspirit.de/node/4 - do you already have drafts for it ?

/me suggest you register on our site - community WHERE ARE YOU!?


(raven24) #17

I don’t think it’s immediately necessary, although a rough draft might inspire more podmins to write their own.


(Steven Hancock) #18

While these would only be suggestions or guidelines for podmins (as mentioned in another discussion, we can’t make a podmin use any particular TOS or privacy policy), I do think it’s necessary. In some jurisdictions, a privacy policy is a legal requirement. It’s also a requirement for any pod using Facebook integration (since you have to register an app on Facebook and, according to their TOS and developer guidelines, every app must have a privacy policy). I may be wrong on this last point, but my understanding is that any site serving any European traffic also needs a cookie policy now.

In addition to the links already provded here, Wordpress.com has licensed the text of their TOS and privacy policies under a Creative Commons license, so those could possibly be used as a starting point.


(groovehunter) #19

I added the text from calispora as template for podmins on diasporaproject.org http://diaspora.openspirit.de/node/6 - I hope I replaced all concrete terms.


(altruism) #20

Groove, I do not see any licence information on thoose documents at calispora, so maybe we should as David (the admin) if it is okey to use them for this.
