In this policy the term "OpenPKG
covers all three related OpenPKG organizations:
OpenPKG Foundation e.V.
OpenPKG uses the name "OpenPKG" as a brand and trademark. Third
parties are not allowed to use the name "OpenPKG" to identify
themselves, their services or products or otherwise use it in any
way to pretend a not existing organizational relationship to OpenPKG.
The OpenPKG artwork is the intellectual property of Ralf S. Engelschall
and must not be used outside OpenPKG without prior written permission.
Any material, information or other communication transmitted or
posted to public services of OpenPKG will be considered non-confidential
and non-proprietary communications. OpenPKG will have no obligations
with respect to the communications.
OpenPKG and its designees will be free to copy, disclose, distribute,
incorporate and otherwise use the communications and all information
embodied therein for any and all commercial or non-commercial purposes.
The submitter is prohibited from posting or transmitting to or from
OpenPKG any unlawful, threatening, libelous, defamatory, obscene, adult,
or other material that would violate any law.
Users utilizing OpenPKG resources, products or services to submit
information with the intention to improve OpenPKG Project resources,
products or services implicitly contribute that information to
the OpenPKG Project for redistribution under the OpenPKG Project
license unless they explicitly mark the information as being "not a
contribution" simultaneously with the submission.
OpenPKG Project backers may ask contributors of frequent, nontrivial
or otherwise legally rated critical submissions to explicitly
accede to the OpenPKG
(OCA) to safeguard the OpenPKG Project license
diluting and from being undermined by third parties' rights.
OpenPKG endeavours to conduct as much discussion as
possible to a broad community. This encourages openness, transparency, and
stimulates the broad community. However, sometimes, especially
for security or internal issues, private communication is necessary.
Recipients must never divulge such information in public without
the explicit permission of OpenPKG.
The central OpenPKG Registry
service collects information about OpenPKG users, hosts, instances
and packages to provide statistical community information to OpenPKG.
This information is stored confidentially and kept private within
OpenPKG. Email addresses and other personalized information is not
shared with third parties.
OpenPKG may occassionally send notices regarding the registered
account or related OpenPKG services. Registered acounts are granted
access to restricted OpenPKG resources and are obliged to not subvert
this restriction by public redistribution. OpenPKG reserves the
right to delete inactive registered accounts. A reminder is sent
prior account deletion to give a last chance to resume activity.
OpenPKG reserves the right to change this policy.
We post an announcement notice for each change.
