Algemene Voorwaarden


Gedragsregels

Bij OVOE willen we zoveel mogelijk maatschappelijke thema’s bespreekbaar maken. Soms zullen het beladen onderwerpen zijn over belangrijke kwesties waar gebruikers zich emotioneel betrokken kunnen voelen. Verhitte discussies zijn dus niet uit te sluiten en dat is prima.

Vrijheid van meningsuiting zien we tijdens deze discussies als een groot goed. De meningen hoeven niet politiek correct te zijn en alles kan gezegd worden. Echter, het maatschappelijk debat heeft ook geen baat bij te verzanden in een ordinaire scheldbarak en de wet mag in geen geval overtreden worden. Om dat te voorkomen, is het noodzakelijk om een aantal duidelijke spelregels af te spreken en te bewaken. Goede afspraken maken goede vrienden. We vragen onze gebruikers om zich daaraan te houden, ten alle tijden.

Zaken die we niet toelaten op OVOE.World:

  • Beledigend gedrag, zoals:
    • Gewelddadige bedreigingen (direct of indirect)
    • Pesterijen
    • Haatdragend gedrag
    • Misbruik van meerdere accounts
    • Privégegevens
    • Impersonatie
    • Letsel aan zichzelf toebregen
  • Spam, zoals:
    • Gebruikersnamen kapen;
    • Uitnodigingsspam;
    • Het verkopen van gebruikersnamen;
    • Malware/phishing.

Als organisatie proberen we zoveel mogelijk toezicht te houden dat deze richtlijnen en afspraken worden nageleefd. Alles in de gaten houden, is evenwel onmogelijk. We onttrekken ons als OVOE dan ook volledig aan de verantwoordelijkheid voor de inhoud op onze website, evenals aan schade, van welke aard dan ook, die geleden kan worden door het gebruik van onze website. Aanvullend vragen we aan onze gebruikers om zelf ook een oogje in het zeil te houden: wanneer er zaken gebeuren die niet volgens de richtlijnen zijn, vragen we dit te melden.

Wanneer we dergelijke zaken bemerken, behouden we het recht om in te grijpen op de manier die wij nodig achten. We kunnen dergelijke zaken bijvoorbeeld (tijdelijk) weren van onze website en de daders mogelijk (tijdelijk) schorsen. Tevens zullen we, indien gevraagd, steeds onze medewerking verlenen aan eventueel politieonderzoek hieromtrent.

Om de interactie op OVOE goed te laten verlopen, hebben we kort enkele richtlijnen neergeschreven:

Etiquette

  1. Zorg dat mensen hun onderwerpen kunnen posten in een veilig, ontvankelijk kader.
  2. Bewaar een open houding: niemand heeft een patent op de waarheid en zelden is de realiteit simplistisch.
  3. Bewaar een open houding en ga voor een inclusief, duurzaam verhaal.
  4. Hou de dialoog constructief, beschaafd en respectvol;
  5. Reageer steeds op de (achterliggende) boodschap en niet op de vorm of de man;
  6. Ontmoet elkaar in de realiteit, in een veilig kader.
  7. Start een actie weldoordacht en vanuit vastberadenheid.
  8. Beschaam het vertrouwen van anderen niet en wees zelf steeds voorzichtig.
  9. Bedank mensen steeds voor hun hulp en steun na afloop. Een complimentje doet ook deugd.
  10. Neem zelf verantwoordelijkheid en meld gedrag dat niet strookt me de waarden en normen op OVOE.
  11. Geniet ten volle van je verblijf op OVOE!

Deze maatregelen helpen ons om de interactie op het platform zo goed mogelijk te laten verlopen. Hieronder gaan we nog meer uitgebreid in op de huisregels van OVOE en lichten we ze uitvoerig toe.

Your Rights

You retain your rights to any Content you submit, post or display on or through the Services. What’s yours is yours — you own your Content (and your photos and videos are part of the Content).

By submitting, posting or displaying Content on or through the Services, you grant us a worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free license (with the right to sublicense) to use, copy, reproduce, process, adapt, modify, publish, transmit, display and distribute such Content in any and all media or distribution methods (now known or later developed). This license authorizes us to make your Content available to the rest of the world and to let others do the same. You agree that this license includes the right for OVOE to provide, promote, and improve the Services and to make Content submitted to or through the Services available to other companies, organizations or individuals for the syndication, broadcast, distribution, promotion or publication of such Content on other media and services, subject to our terms and conditions for such Content use. Such additional uses by OVOE, or other companies, organizations or individuals, may be made with no compensation paid to you with respect to the Content that you submit, post, transmit or otherwise make available through the Services.

OVOE has an evolving set of rules for how ecosystem partners can interact with your Content on the Services. These rules exist to enable an open ecosystem with your rights in mind. You understand that we may modify or adapt your Content as it is distributed, syndicated, published, or broadcast by us and our partners and/or make changes to your Content in order to adapt the Content to different media. You represent and warrant that you have all the rights, power and authority necessary to grant the rights granted herein to any Content that you submit.

4. Using the Services

Please review our Houserules, which are part of the User Agreement and outline what is prohibited on the Services. You may use the Services only in compliance with these Terms and all applicable laws, rules and regulations.

Our Services evolve constantly. As such, the Services may change from time to time, at our discretion. We may stop (permanently or temporarily) providing the Services or any features within the Services to you or to users generally. We also retain the right to create limits on use and storage at our sole discretion at any time. We may also remove or refuse to distribute any Content on the Services, suspend or terminate users, and reclaim usernames without liability to you.

In consideration for OVOE granting you access to and use of the Services, you agree that OVOE and its third-party providers and partners may place advertising on the Services or in connection with the display of Content or information from the Services whether submitted by you or others. You also agree not to misuse our Services, for example, by interfering with them or accessing them using a method other than the interface and the instructions that we provide. You may not do any of the following while accessing or using the Services: (i) access, tamper with, or use non-public areas of the Services, OVOE’s computer systems, or the technical delivery systems of OVOE’s providers; (ii) probe, scan, or test the vulnerability of any system or network or breach or circumvent any security or authentication measures; (iii) access or search or attempt to access or search the Services by any means (automated or otherwise) other than through our currently available, published interfaces that are provided by OVOE (and only pursuant to the applicable terms and conditions), unless you have been specifically allowed to do so in a separate agreement with OVOE (NOTE: crawling the Services is permissible if done in accordance with the provisions of the robots.txt file, however, scraping the Services without the prior consent of OVOE is expressly prohibited); (iv) forge any TCP/IP packet header or any part of the header information in any email or posting, or in any way use the Services to send altered, deceptive or false source-identifying information; or (v) interfere with, or disrupt, (or attempt to do so), the access of any user, host or network, including, without limitation, sending a virus, overloading, flooding, spamming, mail-bombing the Services, or by scripting the creation of Content in such a manner as to interfere with or create an undue burden on the Services. We also reserve the right to access, read, preserve, and disclose any information as we reasonably believe is necessary to (i) satisfy any applicable law, regulation, legal process or governmental request, (ii) enforce the Terms, including investigation of potential violations hereof, (iii) detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues, (iv) respond to user support requests, or (v) protect the rights, property or safety of OVOE, its users and the public. OVOE does not disclose personally-identifying information to third parties except in accordance with our Privacy Policy.

Your Account

You may need to create an account to use some of our Services. You are responsible for safeguarding your account, so use a strong password and limit its use to this account. We cannot and will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to comply with the above.

You can control most communications from the Services. We may need to provide you with certain communications, such as service announcements and administrative messages. These communications are considered part of the Services and your account, and you may not be able to opt-out from receiving them. If you added your phone number to your account and you later change or deactivate that phone number, you must update your account information to help prevent us from communicating with anyone who acquires your old number.

Your License to Use the Services

OVOE gives you a personal, worldwide, royalty-free, non-assignable and non-exclusive license to use the software provided to you as part of the Services. This license has the sole purpose of enabling you to use and enjoy the benefit of the Services as provided by OVOE, in the manner permitted by these Terms.

Nothing in the Terms gives you a right to use the OVOE name or any of the OVOE trademarks, logos, domain names, and other distinctive brand features. All right, title, and interest in and to the Services (excluding Content provided by users) are and will remain the exclusive property of OVOE and its licensors. Any feedback, comments, or suggestions you may provide regarding OVOE, or the Services is entirely voluntary and we will be free to use such feedback, comments or suggestions as we see fit and without any obligation to you.

Ending These Terms

You may end your legal agreement with OVOE at any time by deactivating your accounts and discontinuing your use of the Services.

We may suspend or terminate your account or cease providing you with all or part of the Services at any time for any or no reason, including, but not limited to, if we reasonably believe: (i) you have violated these Terms or our Houserules, (ii) you create risk or possible legal exposure for us; (iii) your account should be removed due to prolonged inactivity; or (iv) our provision of the Services to you is no longer commercially viable. We will make reasonable efforts to notify you by the email address associated with your account or the next time you attempt to access your account, depending on the circumstances. In all such cases, the Terms shall terminate, including, without limitation, your license to use the Services, except that the following sections shall continue to apply: II, III, V, and VI.

5. Disclaimers and Limitations of Liability

The Services are Available “AS-IS”

Your access to and use of the Services or any Content are at your own risk. You understand and agree that the Services are provided to you on an “AS IS” and “AS AVAILABLE” basis. The “OVOE Entities” refers to OVOE, its parents, affiliates, related companies, officers, directors, employees, agents, representatives, partners, and licensors. Without limiting the foregoing, to the maximum extent permitted under applicable law, THE OVOE ENTITIES DISCLAIM ALL WARRANTIES AND CONDITIONS, WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, OR NON-INFRINGEMENT. The OVOE Entities make no warranty or representation and disclaim all responsibility and liability for: (i) the completeness, accuracy, availability, timeliness, security or reliability of the Services or any Content; (ii) any harm to your computer system, loss of data, or other harm that results from your access to or use of the Services or any Content; (iii) the deletion of, or the failure to store or to transmit, any Content and other communications maintained by the Services; and (iv) whether the Services will meet your requirements or be available on an uninterrupted, secure, or error-free basis. No advice or information, whether oral or written, obtained from the OVOE Entities or through the Services, will create any warranty or representation not expressly made herein.

Limitation of Liability

THE OVOE ENTITIES SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES, OR ANY LOSS OF PROFITS OR REVENUES, WHETHER INCURRED DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY, OR ANY LOSS OF DATA, USE, GOOD-WILL, OR OTHER INTANGIBLE LOSSES, RESULTING FROM (i) YOUR ACCESS TO OR USE OF OR INABILITY TO ACCESS OR USE THE SERVICES; (ii) ANY CONDUCT OR CONTENT OF ANY THIRD PARTY ON THE SERVICES, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY DEFAMATORY, OFFENSIVE OR ILLEGAL CONDUCT OF OTHER USERS OR THIRD PARTIES; (iii) ANY CONTENT OBTAINED FROM THE SERVICES; OR (iv) UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS, USE OR ALTERATION OF YOUR TRANSMISSIONS OR CONTENT. THE LIMITATIONS OF THIS SUBSECTION SHALL APPLY TO ANY THEORY OF LIABILITY, WHETHER BASED ON WARRANTY, CONTRACT, STATUTE, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE) OR OTHERWISE, AND WHETHER OR NOT THE OVOE ENTITIES HAVE BEEN INFORMED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF ANY SUCH DAMAGE, AND EVEN IF A REMEDY SET FORTH HEREIN IS FOUND TO HAVE FAILED OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE.

SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW EXCLUSION OF IMPLIED WARRANTIES OR LIMITATIONS ON THE DURATION OF IMPLIED WARRANTIES, SO THE ABOVE DISCLAIMERS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU IN THEIR ENTIRETIES, BUT WILL APPLY TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW.

6. General

We may revise these Terms from time to time. The changes will not be retroactive, and the most current version of the Terms, which will always be at OVOE.world, will govern our relationship with you. We will try to notify you of material revisions, for example via a service notification or an email to the email associated with your account. By continuing to access or use the Services after those revisions become effective, you agree to be bound by the revised Terms.

In the event that any provision of these Terms is held to be invalid or unenforceable, then that provision will be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary, and the remaining provisions of these Terms will remain in full force and effect. OVOE’s failure to enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not be deemed a waiver of such right or provision.

These terms are an agreement between you and OVOE, a Belgian company with its registered office at Eikblokstraat 64, 2100 Deurne, Belgium. If you have any questions about these terms, please contact us.

Effective: 01 February, 2017
