Haaartland is a platform with a purpose. Our purpose is to create more togetherness between people. When you are using the platform, you are accepting this purpose and you are responsible to act in accordance with this purpose.
About team haaartland and our mission together with you
We are a small team up in the Nordics that work hard together with a growing number of users (you : ) to create a unique platform. A safe space for any group of people you want to bring together in trustful collaboration. Scandinavian simple. Affordable for all. We need your help in keeping the platform live up to its purpose, we are on this mission together.
No ads, no ad-tracking
One of the problems when you use traditional social networks is the ad-model. In order to keep them “free” you are tracked by advanced software, in some cases even your private messenger conversations with your spouse, friends are tracked. Your data is sometimes sold to third parties. And ads are targeted towards you. We think this is all pretty un-cool. So, haaartland is different – we have no ad-tracking software and we do not sell data to third parties.
Play nice – we are all different
When you think about it, the word “self-evident” means ‘evident to yourself’ – not to others. So yes, you will find people on this platform that have other opinions than you. This is beautiful, expansive and sometimes also challenging. See this as a opportunity to grow as a person. Have a respectful tone, pep rather than judge, listen and learn, play nice. To support togetherness we all need to have a grown-up dialogue. Basic manners, that will be enough. Respect people’s differences and treat people the way you want to be treated yourself. Abusive behaviour such as posting of abusive content, nuisance reporting of other members, repeated negative and unfactual remarks to other members trying to contribute to the community, will lead you to be banned from our community. Sad, but we have be tough on this. No bullying allowed.
Your content is your content
You retain rights to any content you post on haaartland. We license it from you for free to be able to show it on our platform. You are responsible for posting content on the haaartland that you own, other’s content is a no-no.
No objectionable content
As mentioned above under ‘Play Nice’ we believe that we all are different and that this should act as an inspiration for debate and learning rather than a source of conflict. To make things perfectly clear - mean spirited content, such as racist, anti-queer/homophobic, religious or other aggressive hate-driven rhetoric aimed at driving a wedge between people, realistic portrayals of violence against both animals or humans, incitements to violence, overtly sexual or pornographic material has no place in our community.
Reporting offensive content
You can report offensive content directly under the post, in a comment where it appears or under a person’s profile. This report will go directly to the community owner and to haaartland. Be advised that both the community owner and haaartland can ban you from the community where you did act in conflict with our rules.
Community owners, members and haaartland
Community owners – the person/organization that sets up a community that you join as member - often adopt ‘house rules’ to help the community feel safe and thrive. Please respect these and be aware that a community owner has the right to block your membership in the community if you do not comply with these rules – or the general purpose of haaartland. Also, haaartland might close a community if the community owner does not rectify behavior inside a community that is in violation with the haaartland purpose, e.g. ‘play nice’ rules. Haaartland can also issue a complete block if the user acts abusive - then a user is blocked from all of Haaartland.
Advice and solicitation on platform
Community members may offer each other advice on the platform. Such advice is to be construed as volunteer work only - like informal casual advice from a friend.
Note: some experts run communities. However valuable, this advice is to be seen as inspirational and generic. Acting on advice offered by experts in these communities is by default your own personal responsibility. Also note: at the present moment, we explicitly do not allow communities where medical counseling, investment advice to private entities, or similar advice with potentially serious consequences is offered.
Also, do not paste links in comments for marketing or other influencing purposes or otherwise engage in marketing in communities where you are not the owner.
