On becoming a haaartland user you agree to use the haaartland platform on the following terms:
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.
We are a small team up in the Nordics that work hard together with a growing number of users 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.
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 as an individual based on your personal behaviour and other data points Big Social has collected on you. Big Social also creates filter-bubbles that lull you into staying longer to get exposed to more ads. These filter-bubbles of course risk skewing your perception of reality with political polarisation, depression and eating disorders amongst teenagers as some of the know effects. We think this is all pretty un-cool. So, haaartland is different. We allow for sponsorships to help finance community building. But sponsorship messages are never targeted on an individual basis and there are no filter-bubbles.
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.
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 haaartland that you own, other’s content is a no-no.
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.
Haaartland will act swiftly (within 24 hours) to investigate objectionable content - either discovered by our own methods or reported by other users. This could lead to your content being taken down or you being banned from the platform. Remember, we are in this together. To keep the climate one of diversity and tolerance, act mindfully.
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 – 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.
