Terms of Use

Please don't use this for anything that is illegal in the US, EU, or the country that you are in. Other things to not use this for include gambling/gambling services, crypto-currency, copyright infringement, piracy/file sharing, or circumventing any terms of use. If posting adult content, ensure it complies with local laws, and that of US and EU, as well as use Content Warning features of software to ensure content is appropriately catalogued.

All instances are installed from the official repo of the software of your choice, which may contain security vulnerabilities, however once issues have been patched then all hosted instances will be updated with the security patch.

To purchase services from Spacebear OÜ you must be at least 18 years of age, and you must ensure that you only provide access to your instance to those that it is legal for you to do so. Some age related laws include GDPR which restricts service to those under 16, and COPPA which restricts service to those under 13.

User agrees that Spacebear OÜ shall not be liable for any direct, indirect, incidental, special, consequential or exemplary damages, including but not limited to, damages for loss of profits, goodwill, use, data or other intangible losses resulting from the use of or inability to use the Service.

Spacebear OÜ understands that all Users can suffer when only a few Users abuse the system. Therefore, Spacebear OÜ reserves the right to deny the Services and close the Account of Users or who use the Services in a way that places excessive strain on infrastructure, e.g., excessive repository polling, bandwidth consumption, etc.

Privacy

When purchasing service from Spacebear OÜ, information such as IP address, email, and related metadata are collected. Our payment provider (PayPal) will also collect additional information, of which you can view their privacy policy for specifics.

The software used itself may collect information, and you are responsible for communicating those collections to users who are on your instance.

As a data processor, I employ the best security that I know of to keep the data private, namely keeping the servers and software up to date and servers can only be remotely accessed using my private key that only I have access to.

Also, you can be sure that I don’t go through the data stored in instances databases, logs or any form of media (images/videos). I will only do so when explicitly asked by the owner, when necessary due to a technical issue, if I suspect some illegal activity or some abuse of the system is happening.

Although it never happened, you should also know that I will obviously give access to an instance data to authorities if a legal warrant is presented to me that requires that I provide access to that data. Again, this never happened and I will disclose if a case like that ever happens.

Sub-processors of information include OVH, Sendgrid, Netlify, Github, Quay.io and DigitalOcean. OVH provides server rental and data center infrastructure. The OVH infrastructure that has been provisioned is all located in Canada, and will only be accessed by Spacebear employees (currently there is only me). Sendgrid handles all notification emails for the instances hosted with Spacebear. Netlify is responsible for hosting the signup form, and forwarding any collected responses to me. GitHub stores Dockerfiles, and other related metadata for including customizations around each instance (for example a png of a logo if you wanted a custom logo on your install). Quay.io stores the generated docker images for each instance, and provides security scanning of those images to alert of possible out of date packages causing a security issue. Digital Ocean provides DNS, and backups for data from instances.

At any time, any instance owner can request a backup to move the instance to another service and/or request for the instance and all information to be deleted.

Each instance owner is responsible to inform and ask for consent from the users to store and process their information.

This service strives to reduce tracking in any way possible, and does not use google analytics or any similar trackers. Sendgrid has open tracking disabled.
