Terms of Service

UNA.IO website basic service is free and so is the UNA CMS. We offer paid plans for access to automatic software updates, cloud hosting, support and direct download of advanced UNA modules and templates. We do not control what is happening on your site and we do not claim ownership for the data added to your site. 

However, we  expect you to be responsible in managing your site content and adhere to linode.com (our Hosting Partner) Terms of Service. In particular, make sure that none of the prohibited items (like spam, viruses, or serious threats of violence) appear on your website.

UNA.IO Acceptable Use Policy

UNA.IO is a place that brings together the developers and the users of the UNA CMS to discuss and explore the world of Social Community development. We provide this space for meaningful discussion that is relevant and beneficial to all users - with that in mind we invite users to participate in these community forums in a way that is relevant and beneficial to others.

The following rules help everyone on UNA.IO have a safe and productive experience.

Be Nice, Be Respectful

Engage with Others in a Constructive Way. Assume that everyone on UNA is here to make the platform a great resource - the users come with diverse backgrounds, beliefs, and opinions. It is OK to disagree, but please be civil, respectful, and considerate to other members, this includes all members of the UNA Team.

No Hate Speech

UNA is a place for discussion around the UNA platform and Online Social Community development in general -  UNA does not tolerate content that attacks or disparages an individual or group based on race, gender, religion, nationality, ethnicity, political group, sexual orientation or another similar characteristic. Any generalizations about these topics should be phrased as neutrally as possible.

No Harassment and Bullying

Abusive behaviour directed towards private individuals and organisations is not allowed. That includes UNA employees and the company in general. Repeated and unwanted contact constitutes a form of harassment. There is no minimum service guarantee with UNA.IO - it is a free space where announcements can be made, guidance given and questions raised. If your questions are not being answer quickly enough, you will need to consider direct support, which is available with paid UNA Pro and Cloud subscriptions.

Discussion around the use of UNA applications is welcomed, but if you are dissatisfied with a product or outcome, please avoid denigrating the UNA team in your remarks, we are all looking for constructive outcomes, and personal attacks will not be tolerated.

Be Positive and Purposeful in Your Communications

People are using this platform to ask and answer questions about the development of their UNA websites. If you have a meaningful question requiring an answer, please ask! If you feel like you can answer a question in a way that has value, please answer! But in your questions and answers please avoid the use of sarcasm or misleading information, bear in mind that many people using this platform have English as a 2nd language - so sarcasm could be misconstrued and misleading information can cause significant umbrage to others.
