Terms and Conditions

DISCLAIMER: The following is not a legal document. The administrators of comm.network reserve the right to make final judgement on and act in response to potential abuse or misuse of the service.


Users are expected to follow comm.network rules. Users should not expect announcements of any kind, including those regarding updates or site shutdown. There is no guarantee of uptime or backing up of user content (see server specifications for explanation). In the event that backups are provided, for example during upgrades/changes, users must expect that these backups may not succeed.


comm.network uses NGINX for services including logging. The following information will be logged by comm.network:
  • Timestamps
  • Source IPs
  • URLs
  • Returned HTTP Response Status
comm.network uses cookies for session handling. All user data is stored solely on the comm.network server as well as other instances comm.network federates with. User data will not be copied to a different machine, sold, or shared with third parties in any way. (See E-Mail disclaimer). In the event that comm.network moves to another server, it is possible that user data will also be moved to the new server. All user data existing on the previous server will be destroyed. There are no analytics or other tracking software running on comm.network except the moderation features provided by Mastodon. If additional tracking is found, please report it to comm.network administrators as soon as possible. When comm.network sends email messages to users, it does so using a separate SMTP server. All E-Mails are stored unencrypted there (because it's the way E-Mails work). Cloudflare is the DNS provider to comm.network. As such, users should expect that Cloudflare will conduct analytics on DNS queries.

comm.network is a {vaporwave, seapunk, pastelwave}-themed Mastodon instance.
