Flawed ToS

Recommended Posts

Because I care about certain staff members, members of the community, and osbot as a whole, I feel some things in the ToS should be pointed out.

 

OSBot is an established Dutch company, meaning the terms of service on this site not only are subject to jurisdiction of where the dedicated server is located, but also the rules and regulations as set by Dutch law.

 

I'll start from the beginning. The ToS is severely outdated. 

The images and information contained in our website are copyright woeks and our exlusive property. The content of this website may in no case be copied, reproduced, transmitted, distributed or displayed by any means unless done with the sole intention and purpose of personal use only or our formal written consent. 

Contrary to the believe of the ToS, all of the information and images posted on the website are not rightfully OSBot's. This is the exact opposite of what the Dutch law allows.

We hold the right at any time, and without prior notice, to stop to supply any of our products or services provided by us and we will be in no way liable to you in any way if we decide to stop such supply. 

That is quite untrue. OSBot does not hold the right to stop supply if it is guaranteed to you upon purchase, even with an agreement. The statement is considered an unreasonable request.

Your use of the forum is governed by the forum Terms and Conditions which are agreed upon registration and can be found through a link in the footer.

There is no ToS link in the /forum/ footer.

 

A very severe issue relates to scripts. Scripters, there was never any stable contract signing over your intellectual property rights (which, according to Dutch laws, are directly given and bound to any work you create individually) for the scripts OSBot is selling. As far as I'm concerned, your scripts are being sold without consent. If you'd like to argue that point, show me the contract containing your signature agreeing to waiver your rights. 

 

Feel free to criticize as I love criticism.

 

Thank you, and please make the ToS more clear.

I have a new ToS that I wrote up, that is waiting to be implemented. Will edit and throw in spoiler in a moment.

Throwing in a bunch of different conditions is unnecessary, and this is a rough draft of course.

If you didn't write them in accordance to the Dutch laws, better get to re-writing...

 

 

 

 

OSBot.org, its administrators, beneficiaries, owners, and/or users can not and will not be held liable for any legal and/or financial claim.

 

In reference to absurd requests, this is illegal.

Added a few conditions, scratch what I said earlier.

Receptive to feedback and improvements to this!

 

In terms of Dutch laws, a Dutch member will have to help me with that. It should be fixed relatively soon and updated, though.

I can't criticize the OP, this is very true.

There is actually a lot of things which have been left out (i.e. you can get refunds within seven days if you don't use the 'service' [scripts, vouchers {vouchers that haven't been redeemed yet} etc which I have seen people denied] within seven days, osbot must state how they protect your details [fake details in most peoples cases on this site lel], you actually need contact details and so on [feel free to look it up, these are just some of the EU ones I can think of the top of my head]) but what do you expect with the recent half assed attitude by the devs in respects to issues like this.

 

 + lul at sherlocks attempt at a tos that would have attempted to deny a basic right if it would have been legal to do so.

 

When I joined I was really impressed by Osbot but now it's falling down the shitter quite simply. In all honesty I wouldn't be surprised if osbot just got offshore hosting.. Assuming Rs07 doesn't die for a while who do you think people will bot with when other bots will have caught up with osbot (remember improvements cannot continue at a linear rate, eventually other bots won't be far behind etc); right now the only two things osbot has got going is a great bot and free use (paying members could just switch over ofc). From a financial and moral stand point the Admins are going about this all wrong unless they (cba explaining this + they aren't due to - [which I also cba explaining since I'm not explaining the original point]) -. 

 

Badly structured post, but yolo. The value of effort that I actually put into wording this post doesn't actually represent the value of information in this post so you should make an effort to understand the post despite it's curious/odd/bad (etc) sentence structure/terminology (etc).

Great except the part were it says you are not subscribed or registered to Jagex or any of their products, blah blah blah. Anyway I'm sure we all have runescape membership, so a botting website were you cant buy membership doesnt make sense.
