29.   Thank Other Members: Members who have received a free item or service, should thank the member who gave them the free item or service.

There are always people who have goods or items which they no longer need, and would want to give it to people who can use them. There are always people who want and need such used items or products. However, there are also people or entities who would want to trade with such used goods. Principally, Alloma cannot and will not prohibit trading of used goods, however, the Alloma concept has emerged primarily in order to help create a better society and especially by primarily helping individuals save money. Therefore Alloma does not allow the commercial trade of free goods, if they were offered less than a week on its platform. With this Alloma wants to give private users a better and more realistic chance to receive goods they are in need for.

A violation of these terms or a misuse is strictly forbidden, and it may be leading to cancelling the membership and possibly to submitting a legal claim and/or a legal action.

31.   A company, an organization or any other legal form of entities may also register to Alloma, provided that the registration is made by an authorized person by the legal entity, and provided it is not used for commercial purposes, but only to help create a better society. In such a case, the company, the entity or the organization may for example offer surplus materials, other goods or services, scrap materials, products or partial-products for free. In this scenario the company may have their company name or logo published, without being considered illegal commercial misuse by Alloma.
It is forbidden to use the Alloma platform by legal entities purely to serve their commercial purposes. Some links to companies’ services might be tolerated by Alloma team, provided the primary purpose of the offer remains to offer a real item or service, and the self-advertising takes only a negligible part of the offer. Alloma has the full and exclusive right to decide whether the published advertisement is acceptable and serves the good and positive spirit and purposes of the Alloma concept.

32.   A Member may not publish false offers of any kind. Alloma is a free platform made in order to promote a good cause and in order to get the best of human characteristics. Therefore a high degree of honesty among its members is expected. Offers have to be real and reflect exactly what is written in them. Members who publish false or misleading offers or requests will have their membership withdrawn.

33.   Alloma has the full and exclusive right to change and modify the website at any time, to modify and/or change or cancel certain technologies or stop them.

34.   Alloma may update the website often in order to improve it or in order to fix certain issues. Updating the website may cause some delays for users during the update-time. User should take that in account. The Alloma team will do its best to minimize such delays as much as possible.

35.   Alloma team is doing its best to keep Alloma website running smoothly, to keep it free of charge and to constantly improve it. But it can happen that some technical or other issues may arise that cannot be solved directly. The Member agrees that he/she has no right of any kind to any legal claims towards Alloma or its team, cannot ask or claim any compensation for any losses that might occur to him/her, even if Alloma service is completely stopped. The member recognizes and agrees that due to the philanthropic nature of Alloma website, it cannot be maintained at the same level of commercial websites. Errors, delays and other unwanted technical problems may arise, and it may not be possible to solve them immediately or directly. We’re a philanthropic platform and we strive to serve best within our abilities. We are happy for anyone who participates with the growing philanthropic platform of Alloma, and we’re looking forward to serve you. If unexpected or unwanted problems arise, it does not give any member any legal right to claim or place charges against Alloma, Alloma legal partners, or Alloma-team in any way.

36.   The Member agrees that the Alloma-service is completely a free service, and that it can be stopped or modified at any time by the Alloma team. The Alloma team is entitled the full exclusive right to do so. Alloma members have no right or claims of any kind regarding the continuity of Alloma service or Alloma team activity. Alloma plans to integrate advertisement within the website in the near future in order to be able to keep the Alloma website free. Integrating advertisement within the Alloma website will not change the existing free service of Alloma website, but the design of the website might change slightly. Alloma will tend to adjust the automatic advertising, so that the ads will be chosen from “quality, serious and less harming” advertisers.

37.   If misuse regarding certain offers is reported by other members,  Alloma team is entitled the full right to immediately cancel, suspend, stop, delete, and/or contact the publishing member for clarifications and ask the member to modify or to change his/her offer. When illegal acts and violations of law are discovered, Alloma team may unilaterally cancel or suspend the membership immediately, and may also notify the law enforcement authorities. Severe cases of law violation will not be tolerated by Alloma team, for example cases of child abuse, or of serious fraud. The Idea of creating the concept of Alloma website is to help create a better and more environmentally and socially aware society, and to help protect the environment by emphasizing the reusability of goods. The free services-concept is developed in order to encourage the spirit of volunteerism and mutual support and the gift of giving within the community. When Alloma website is properly used, both the member offering the free item or free service, and the member receiving it will benefit from. That is in addition to the great feeling of having done something good for society, and the feeling of belonging to each other.

38.   Members aren’t allowed to report the misuse of an offer purely out of revenge or out of other personal, non-justifiable or for any other inappropriate reasons.

§6 Court Jurisdiction

Enforcement / Jurisdiction / Applicable Law

The offer could look then similar to: “I Offer 3 tutoring lessons in Physics for kids under 15 years old.” Or “A Gardner offers 3 hours of consultation and/or help.” With this policy, Alloma targets the improvement of services offered, so they would become more meaningful and qualitative. Alloma suggests that references and safety of children and vulnerable people should be considered at all times.

9.      If Members violate the law, or if they commit criminal acts or if they violate the rights of third parties or the rights of other Members that could result in legal and/or judicial proceedings against Alloma and/or the Member, and/or which causes time delays and costs to Alloma, the Member assumes full responsibility for all costs associated with his/her actions and will pay Alloma all incurring costs including the costs of the legal defense of Alloma, court costs, attorney fees and internally and externally administrative expenses.

 

§10 Actions and blocking

1.      Alloma reserves the right to take the following measures if sufficiently specific indications are given that Alloma Members violated governing laws, government regulations, these terms and conditions and/or if they infringed the rights of third parties, and/or if Alloma and/or any of its Members have legitimate reason for doing so:

§  Modification or deletion of the published offer.

§  Warning, deactivating or cancelling the membership in severe cases.

2.      A Member whose membership was cancelled “finally”, is not allowed to re-register under a different name.

3.      In cases of violations, Alloma makes its considerations to protect the interests of the Member, against whom the violation was made, and not those of the violating Member.

 

§11 Further Duties of Members

1.      Alloma Members commit to take all appropriate data security measures and to comply with them.

2.      Alloma Members aren’t allowed to gather personal information of other Members or use it for purposes other than those intended by the relating Members.

3.      The Alloma Member is responsible for any account damage that is caused by carelessness or recklessness of his/her side, which may also include the loss of login and/or password or any other related damage.

4.      Alloma ensures the Members that it will back up the account information frequently, but since it is nearly impossible to technically secure any open system such as the Alloma platform with 100% assurance that no hacking may occur, Alloma cannot ensure that no unexpected personal or account information loss may occur, and it cannot take responsibility if such a loss or damage is made. In such an unexpected case, Alloma will still do its best to recover it, and to minimize any loss that may occur and decrease the damage as much as possible.

5.      It is strictly forbidden for Members to compromise the security and/or the security measures of Alloma in any way.

6.      It is forbidden for Alloma Members to post offers, or make any posts or any kind or any information delivery through the Alloma platform that may include any direct or indirect malicious code or any sort of data which is infected with Viruses, Worms or Trojans. If an Alloma Member or any user of the Alloma platform causes damage in the functionality of Alloma platform intentionally, and/or by misusing the Alloma platform, the causing Member or user will be charged for the full cost of the damage.

7.      Alloma Members are fully responsible for all activities that are conducted or related to their accounts.

 

§12 Legal Liability

1.      Alloma is not liable for defects and damages caused by third parties.

2.      Alloma is not liable for actions carried out among Members.

3.      The costs that may incur due to damage caused by an Alloma Member, will be carried fully by the causing member.

4.      Alloma holds no responsibility whatsoever for claims for damages made by third parties.

5.      Alloma uses latest modern technology within its limited financial capabilities. But even the latest current state of technology cannot be guaranteed to be error-free, and cannot guarantee an error-free data communication. Alloma cannot be held liable in this respect for not ensuring continuous availability of system.

 

§13 Copyright

1.      When uploading personal or other images, the Member carries the full responsibility for the copyrights of images he/she uses. If any images texts etc., posted through Alloma have any copyright protection, Alloma will have exclusive rights by the posting Member to use all posted information on its social media and other Alloma Forums and Platforms. If the posted images or texts are not in the possession of the posting member and claims are made against their use, the posting Member will be held responsible for all claims. Alloma cannot and does not check the legality of information within members’ posts or offers as a standard procedure.

2.      The use of images or texts published on Alloma platform by third parties is forbidden and requires the express consent of Alloma team or that of the publishing Member.

3.      By uploading images, or by publishing texts on Alloma platform, the Member agrees to entitle Alloma the direct and indirect rights to use the images or texts.

4.      Alloma does not review or check the authenticity of posted images and texts, and it is therefore considered the mere responsibility of the publishing Member to check and make sure of publishing legal content. The Member will be asked to pay the full cost, in case the Member causes damage by careless copying, in the case of infringement of rights, or privacy of others, and in other cases.

 

§14 Final Provisions

1.    Alloma retains the right to change or amend these terms and conditions at any time.

2.    Generally, the laws and rules of each country in which Alloma operates apply for users of that country. When performing actions among members from different countries, the more limiting law of both countries always applies to both members. Example, if one country allows the sale of tobacco for people over 17 years of age, while a second country allows the sale of tobacco for people over 18 years of age, then the delivery of tobacco is allowed for users from both countries who are over 18 years of age.

3.    Disputes that occur on the "Alloma Website”, which will get Alloma involved, will be resolved under the jurisdiction applicable in the relevant country, or under the jurisdiction of another country chosen by Alloma. Disputes that happen on "Alloma Website” in which members of different countries are involved, and which will get Alloma involved, will be resolved either under the jurisdiction of one of the countries for which the respective Alloma website is made, or under the jurisdiction of another country chosen by Alloma.

4.    Should individual provisions of the contract with the Member including these general terms and conditions in whole or in part, be or become invalid for any reason whatsoever, the validity of the remaining provisions will remain unaffected. The wholly or partially ineffective provision shall be replaced by the contracting parties by a valid provision, which reflects and supports the purpose of the invalid provision. The aforementioned provision applies only in case of loopholes.

 

 

 CHILD PROTECTION

Alloma team is committed to protecting the privacy of children. Members should be aware that this site is not intended or designed to attract children under the age of 13 years old. Because the age of children who are allowed to use the website may differ among different countries, the limit for the use of Alloma website is set to be at least 14 (fourteen) years old. Alloma has no way of checking the authenticity of the data of its members as a standard procedure. In the case of violation of the Child Protection Act, the member will be held responsible for the full consequences of his/her act. If the violation is caused by underage children, their parents will be considered or held responsible.
