- If you are genuinely concerned about a person, and aren’t just looking to start a fight, please approach them privately, and in a respectful manner. I know that there are times when people need to be called out, but that must be done appropriately. Act within moral boundaries, and restrain yourself in the event of any uncertainty.
Furthermore, when you are posting to public rooms, we request that you:
Are friendly, patient, welcoming, considerate and respectful. Exercise virtues that are morally proper. Be loving, and kind. Act with compassion. Refrain from pointless arguments. It is okay to disagree and to discuss those disagreements. It is even okay to argue, but do so in a manner that is respectful and morally proper.
Note that we do not place most of these restrictions on private, end-to-end encrypted communications. Such restrictions are beyond our means to enforce, and while we would encourage you to act morally in all cases, both public and private, we cannot stop the consensual private exchange of any messages or files. We believe in digital freedom. This means not only our freedom, but your freedom as well. We don’t want unnecessary restrictions placed on us, so we strive not to place unnecessary restrictions on others either. The restrictions we have placed here are mainly to maintain a friendly and welcoming environment, and to ensure that our homeserver can interact meaningfully with other homeservers. we will not tolerate any behavior that could possibly land this homeserver on a blacklist. We are loaning you our resources, it is your job to respect them.
That being said, it is also our job to protect you. If you have received an unwanted or unwelcome message from someone you do not know, report it to us, so we can take the appropriate action against them.
The Matrix protocol heavily utilizes encryption, which may be in violation of the local statutes of your country, state, or other authoritative governing body. It is your job to assess the risk in using the homeserver in places where it is unlawful to do so, however we believe that privacy and encryption are a fundamental right, so we will not terminate your use of the homeserver even if your use is unlawful due to the use of encryption or other privacy mechanisms under your local jurisdiction.
Intellectual Property Rights
By posting content to the homeserver, you acknowledge that you have the right to post that content, and that we have the right to take it down for any reason.
You assume all responsibility for and risks associated with using our homeserver. We make no guarantees regarding the integrity of data you post. Additionally, you acknowledge that by using our homeserver, you may be exposed to content you find objectionable. You are more than welcome to report it to us, but we will apply these terms and conditions to the content as we see fit.
We make no guarantees that the homeserver will be accessible at all times. While we strive to make sure it is always available, that is not always possible.
We are not liable for any failure to store your data. If the homeserver is somehow corrupted, and data is lost, we will do our best to resetore from backups and recover as much as we can, but we make no guarantees.
Warranty & Disclaimers
The homeserver is provided as is, without warranty of any kind, express or implied, including but not limited to the warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, and noninfringement. In no event shall we be liable for any claim, damages, or other liability, whether in action of contract, tort, or otherwise, arising from, out of or in connection with the homeserver or the use of other dealings in the homeserver.
We offer no assurances that the homeserver will meet your requirements or remain uninterrupted, secure, or error-free. Furthermore, we do not guarantee that any errors or defects will be corrected, although as stated earlier, we depend on this homeserver just as much as you, so we are certainly going to make sure things are working well.
As this is a service any user can register for, we do not control, endorse, or otherwise accept responsibility for any content posted here, except for our own. You use the homeserver at your own risk.
The only data that the homeserver collects and stores is data that is willfully given to it in order to take advantage of the homeserver’s functionality. Generated information such as log files of Synapse are also kept, but are only reviewed in the event of a server malfunction or error, or to block an unruly user. No data is used to profile or otherwise attempt to identify users beyond what they use to identify themselves.
No data is sent to any third parties beyond what is required for the homeserver to function as intended. We don’t run the homeserver on our own hardware and we are based in Iran so we can not make no guarantees that our service provider or government won’t have access to the data on our server, so we recommend you to enable E2EE and use it in your rooms and chats.
Our server is powered by open-source software that has been heavily audited by a number of reputable parties to ensure security and privacy.
Note that Matrix is a federated protocol; so your data may be sent to other homeservers if you choose to send messages to users on those homeservers. Of course, that is entirely optional. If you keep all your communications on this homeserver, then absolutely none of your data gets sent anywhere else. But if you do choose to send messages to users on other homeservers, you should consult the privacy policies of those homeservers to see how they use your data.
Except when absolutely necessary to prevent abuse, we will not view, act on, or otherwise take advantage of any data stored on the homeserver.
It is important to point out that all private messages are end-to-end encrypted by default. This means that our server does not even have access to the contents of these messages in the first place. The only rooms that are unencrypted are ones that are explicitly set to public at their creation time. Encryption is not necessary for these rooms because their contents are meant to be publicly available anyway. However, if you creat direct messages to other users, or private rooms, anything sent will be end-to-end encrypted.
