PUTIN lupenreiner Luftraum-BARBAR MH 17

Mai 24, 2018

Lichtgeschwindigkeit 8197

Am Freitag, 25. Mai 2018

.

.

Heute, Donnerstag, 24. Mai 2018 trat eine zuständige niederländische Pressekonferenz zu den Ergebnissen der jahrelangen Untersuchungen und Ermittlungen zu dem Absturz der zivilen Flugreisenden über der Ukraine, der sich sehr bald als ein gezielter militärischer Raketenangriff herausstellte.

.

ERGEBNIS heute: 298 Tote. Man weiß den Typ der Waffe. Man weiß inzwischen die konkrete Adresse beim russischen Militär in Russland )KURSK) sowie den offizialmilitärischen Antransport von Russland nach Ukraine.

.

PUTIN stellte sich auf Anfrage dumm: WELCHES FLUGZEUG-Unglück?

.

PUTIN hat die Pflicht ganz konkret den barbarischen Abschuss mit hunderten zivilen Todesopfern, überwiegend Niederländern und Malayen, aufzuklären:

.

Befehlsstruktur

.

Befehlsgeber

.

Ausführende

.

genaue Dokumentation des Angriffs

.

Erklärung zum Ziel und Wertsetzung PUTINS bei diesem brutalen Anschlag.

.

.

Dietmar Moews meint: Unsere jüngere Geschichte ist von dessert storm bis Auschwitz, von Gaza bis MH17, von Nagasaki bis Harrisburg, von maßlosen Willkürs-Gewalttaten nach oben offen.

.

PUTIN liegt damit lupenrein jenseits jeglicher Akzeptanz.

.

.

Die internationale Verfolgung des MH17-Abschusses ruft nach Aufklärung durch die Verantwortlichen und außerdem danach, das BUSINESS AS USUAL abzubrechen ist. Eine Teilnahme an einer Fußball-WM, während alle zivilen Flugzeuge 24 Stunden um die Uhr von willkürlichen russischen Abschüssen bedroht sind, halte ich für herzlos und bekloppt.

Wrack von MH 17

Bundeskanzlerin Merkel macht Wirtschaft in CHINA

Mai 24, 2018

Lichtgeschwindigkeit 8195

Am Freitag, 25. Mai 2018

.

.

Die weltweiten Druckwirkungen der zollpolitischen und handelsrechtlichen Ambitionen durch das AMERICAN FIRST des US-Präsidenten No. 45 haben in allen Interessenzentren Nervosität und vielseitige Unterhandlungen ausgelöst:

.

EINS Zwischen den finanzwirtschaftlichen und militärischen Gewichten, die No. 45 gegenüber Deutschland ankündigt, stehen die ungleiche Handelsbilanz zugunsten Deutschlands und die militärische Dominanz der USA in Rede. Deutschland soll die Ausfuhrüberschüsse mit gesteigerten Einfuhren justieren. Deutschland soll die Rüstungsausgaben erheblich steigern (dabei gönnen die USA Deutschland diverse interessante Rüstungstechniken nicht – falls diese nachgefragt würden)

.

ZWEI No. 45 will mit den nationalen Staatenvertreter verhandeln und erkennt nicht die EU-Kommissare aus Brüssel als Gegenüber an. Brüssel will mit 28 EU-Staaten stark auftreten, hat aber gar keinen EU-Vertrag, der solche Vertretung in Geltung setzt.

.

DREI No. 45 will alle möglichen Weltgegenden unter Druck setzen und verlangt dafür Parteinahme und akzeptiert keine Neutralität, wenn er gegen CHINA, NORDKOREA, PERSIEN, IRAK, SYRIEN, DEUTSCHLAND, MEXICO, ARGENTINIEN, VENEZUELA, RUSSLAND usw. seine Repressionen und Sanktionen startet.

.

VIER Der „WESTEN aus Sicht von No. 45 besteht inzwischen nur noch aus den USA und ISRAEL. Wenn sich alle anderen auf Koexistenz und in Handelsverträgen regulierten Freihandel einrichten, wird es allen schaden.

.

FÜNF Wenn der Handelskrieg von No. 45 hochgezogen wird, wird der weltweite ÖL-Dollar-Verrechnungs-Modus angegriffen werden und wird zerstört werden. Die USA können nicht wirtschaftlich drohen, ohne die militärische Konfrontation dahinter zu setzen. Das kann No. 45 nicht überstehen.

.

.

Dietmar Moews meint: Die Handelsmissiosreise der deutschen Bundeskanzlerin MERKEL, mit einer gemäßigten FRANKREICH/GROSSBRITANNIEN/DEUTSCHLAND-Verabredung

im Rücken, können Deutschland und China komfortabel die zukünftigen Wünsche aufeinander abstimmen.

.

Der deutsche Außenminister SPD-Heiko Maas konnte in Washington lediglich als Rechtsanwalt MERKELS vortragen. MAAS sollte in den deutschen Medien nicht so großschnäuzig tun, als mache er grundlegende deutsche Außenpolitik in den USA. bekanntlich macht Bundeskanzlerin MERKEL Alles, was wichtig ist, in der EU und in der Welt, selbst. Das AA muss zuarbeiten und viel reisen.

.

Wenn die Übersetzer nicht gelogen haben, dann hat Xi JINPING heute konkret angesprochen, dass er seine CHINA-Politik immer weiter rechtsstaatlich verbessern will.

.

XI JINPING

KÖLN SÜD OFFEN! 2018 Atelierbesuch bei dem Maler Dietmar Moews

Mai 24, 2018

Lichtgeschwindigkeit 8194

Am Donnerstag, 24. Mai 2018

.

.

Ich mache erneut mit, wenn in der Kölner Südstadt in die offenen Ateliers eingeladen wird – KSO! 2018 wurde dieses Jahr von Arnd Schäfer, Grevy, aufgezogen; es sind 81 Künstler angekündigt.

.

.

Sehr geehrte Kunstinteressentin, sehr geehrter Kunstinteressent,

gerne geht man auch zu zweit oder mit mehreren, denn in ausgewählter

Begleitung sieht und hört man zusätzlich.

 

Ich freue mich, auch im Jahr 2018 an den Offenen Ateliers teilnehmen zu können.

Wir bereiten uns schon vor, stellen was Schönes aus, wollen auch etwas Kuchen

backen und folgen dem Glück:

 

„Nicht unter allen Umständen Zugeständnisse zu machen, Tatenlust, Geschäftigkeit,

Arbeitsfreude und Annehmlichkeiten sich leisten zu können – voilá, der Entwurf

einer Bedenklichkeit, die ihn bei seinem Auftreten wie eine Botschaft immer wieder

von „Glücklich-Sein“ hat sprechen lassen.“

„Die Kinderseiten der Epoche

Frisieren gehört zu Strafe

von Dietmar Moews

Ich genieße diese herausfließenden Kinderseiten der Epoche. Auch weil so eine Kinderseite der Epoche stets mehrere Kinderseiten hat – haben könnte, wenn ich nicht so ein genügsames Wesen hätte, dass dann immer das Licht ausknipst.

.

In diesem Moment hat sich jedoch das Licht wie immer selbst angeknipst und schon geht es ab. Ich rufe noch hinterher: Wann geht es denn ab? – und die Antwort schallt herüber: Donnerstag!

.

Immer Donnerstag. Ich bin ungeduldig.

.

Es sollte doch abgehen, wenn sich die Schenkel öffnen. Lehnt man sich dann zwischendurch mal zurück und sinnt nach, schwingt da, auch für den wirklich lockeren Mensch, irgendwie so etwas wie Angst oder Strafe oder Angst vor Strafe oder Angst aus dem Fluss des gelingenden Vollzuges herausgestoppt zu werden. Oder überhaupt ist der Geschehensfluss, der Seinsfluss so lebensfreundlich, dass man gar keinen Schnitt wünscht. Was soll Selbstdistanz? Was soll Objektivität?

.

Sagst du, siehst was anders – ja, gut, wie siehst du das? – ich sehe es auch, wohl anders. Darüber lässt sich reden, aber nicht streiten. Das ist unsere getrennte Welt. Siehst du, wie es draußen schneit. Der Schnee kommt herab. Ich stehe daneben. Sehe den Schnee. Schnee lässt sich anschweigend genießen. Ich bin mir sicher, dass die Einprägsamkeit des ersten Schnees, betrachtet man ihn gemeinsam, gut so gelassen werden kann. Es stimmt ohne Worte. Ich bin mir sicher, über den Anblick des Schneiens lässt sich keine Gedankenpreisgabe so einstimmen, wie es wortlose Schneebetrachtung an sich hat. Schon wenn es genauer sein soll, als die eigene Schneesicht zu eben einem selben Schnee in den Empfindungen des Anderen, würden selbst die selben Worte zum Schneien daraus Sprache machen und eine Erlebnishaut einziehen, die das Erlebnis nicht tiefer bewahrheiten könnte, als es der sinnliche Akt bereits an sich hat:

.

Es schneit. Das zerredet man nicht. Meine liebe Mutter genoss es unvergleichlich, wenn es die Gelegenheit ergab, dass sie zum Fenster raus in den Garten blickte und der erste Schnee hatte sich mächtig eingeschneit und dann passte ihre Lieblingsformel, sie sagte dann: Es schnippelt.

.

Es schnippelt – konnte sie auch mit Blicken sagen, während es draußen schneite. Der Frieden drinnen enthielt keine Drohung, wenn es schnippelte – muss auch schon mal an Streuen, Räumen oder Fegen des Gehweges gedacht werden (wer in einer Sackgasse einschneit, redet schon mal von der weißen Scheiße). Hier wird jedoch nur die winzige Verschiebung der stummen Betrachtung des Schneiens, als eine mögliche Kinderseite der Epoche, angerührt: Statt Frisieren als Strafe – ein mögliches Frieren als Strafe und Preis, den so ein Naturerlebnis immer kostet.

RÜFFEL für Hoeneß für „Scheiß-Jahre“ und Watschn für Wagner für „Scheiß-Woche“

Mai 23, 2018

Lichtgeschwindigkeit 8192

Am Donnerstag, 24. Mai 2018

.

.

Es ist so schief, weil beim Bayern-Boss ULI HOENESS nicht mehr klar ist, ob er auf Speed ist oder bereits an der absteigenden biologischen Kurve leidet oder ob ihm einfach die Herzensbildung und gute Erziehung fehlt, derart unpassend herumzuposaunen.

.

Hoeness, der mit über zehn Jahren Kriminalität, ohne Geständnis, mit vorgetäuschter Selbstanzeige, ohne die fehlenden Steuererklärungen – schließlich noch durch CSU-Nepotismus am Gesetz vorbei, in München, strafverschont worden ist – der tönt also, einen Leistungssportler wie SANDRO WAGNER abzuwatschn’n.

.

.

dpa.de am 20. Mai 2018:

.

„…Die Personalie Sandro Wagner sorgt weiter für Wirbel: Nach seinem Rüffel von Bundestrainer Jogi Löw setzt es für den Bayern-Stürmer die nächste verbale Watschn. FCB-Präsident Uli Hoeneß kritisiert Aussagen Wagners, der bei der Abschlussfeier des Rekordmeisters von einer „Scheiß-Woche“ gesprochen hatte.

.

Bayern Münchens Stürmer Sandro Wagner hat sich nach dem verlorenen Pokal-Finale den nächsten Rüffel von Vereinspräsident Uli Hoeneß innerhalb von wenigen Tagen abgeholt.

.

.

Bei der Abschlussfeier des Fußball-Rekordmeisters am Sonntag auf dem Marienplatz hatte Wagner von einer „Scheiß-Woche“ für sich gesprochen und damit auf die verpasste WM-Nominierung sowie die Pokal-Niederlage gegen Eintracht Frankfurt (1:3) verwiesen.

.

„Wenn er das gemacht hat, dann geht das nicht“, sagte Hoeneß dem „Kicker“ (Dienstag) nun als Reaktion darauf und wurde deutlich: „Das kann er bei Bayern München nicht machen. Das war schon der zweite Fall in kürzester Zeit.“

.

Dem Bayern-Patron war bereits die Reaktion Wagners missfallen, als dieser von Bundestrainer Joachim Löw nicht in den erweiterten Kader für die Weltmeisterschaft berufen worden war.

.

Der 30-Jährige hatte daraufhin den Rücktritt aus der Nationalmannschaft verkündet und dem Trainerteam indirekt vorgeworfen, nicht offen und ehrlich zu sein.

.

Hoeneß war davon „schon ein bisschen überrascht, so böse hätte er jetzt nicht unbedingt reagieren müssen“, sagte er bei Sky.

.

Nach der Pokal-Enttäuschung soll Wagner seine Medaille weggeworfen haben. „Ich habe es nicht gesehen: Wenn das so gewesen ist, ist das auch nicht richtig“, sagte Hoeneß.

.

Wagner war im Winter von Hoffenheim zu den Bayern gekommen und hat einen Vertrag bis 2020.“

.

.

Dietmar Moews meint: Welch eine Staatskrise in Bayern! – Es ist schwer nachzuvollziehen, außer dass Fußballer unter Bedingungen des Erwerbs-Spitzensports in vielen individuellen Fällen nicht zur altersgemäßen Herzensbildung, Reife und Entfaltung schaffen.

.

ULI Hoeness, allerdings hat. als Krimineller mit 66 Jahren Alter, einfach die Pflicht, sich freundlich und demütig zu verhalten.

.

Uli Hoeness schadet der Sitte und dem Gemeinschaftsgeist in der deutschen Öffentlichkeit, wenn ausgerechnet er, der über zehn Jahre lang als Krimineller aktiv war und dann noch vertuscht, um was es ging, hier heuchlerisch den ZEIGEFINGER hochstreckt.

.

SO GEHT ES NICHT. So wird auch SANDRO WAGNER nur abdrehen und nichts lernen, außer „OBER STICHT UNTER“ – die Kampfmoral der Verpitbullung eines ULI HOENESS.

CSU Dümmlicher Dauerwahldampf

Mai 23, 2018

Lichtgeschwindigkeit 8191

Am Donnerstag, 24. Mai 2018

.

.

Seit Deutschland und die Hilfsbereitschaft unzähliger deutscher Freiwilliger im Sommer des Jahres 2015 den Kollaps der EU-Zufluchtspolitik abgefedert hatte, und die gestrandeten Flüchtlinge aus Ungarn aufgenommen hat, betreibt der CSU-Politiker Horst Seehofer Wahlkampf gegen die eigene Regierungskoalition.

.

Seehofer und die CSU sowie der neuinstallierte bayerische Ministerpräsident Markus Söder zeigen sich von der ekelhaften Seite gegenüber der ganzen Welt und gegenüber den hilfsbereiten Deutschen –

gastunfreundlich, Geizig im eigenen Überflüss,

unappetitlich in der Sprache,

aggressiv gegen die eigene Staatsgemeinschaft.

.

Wie es zur erneuten GROSSEN KOALITION 2017/18 in Berlin kommen konnte, ist der Verschrobenheit des führenden Personals der Parteien zu danken – die Parteien haben keine fähigen Leute. Der Absturz der CSU und auch der SPD ist quasi zwangsläufig – wer kann schon Dobrindt oder Nahles Vertrauen?

.

Der digitale Überwachungsstaat hat sich ganz von den europäischen EU-Normen hin zur US-Brutalität hin durchgepowert. Nichts ist mehr von Menschenwürde, von Selbstbestimmung, von Habeas Corpus, vom Recht an den eigenen Daten und deren Schutz überhaupt noch in Rede.

.

.

Dietmar Moews meint: Der Gestapo-Staat zieht durch. Neuerdings dürfen Polizisten zugreifen, ohne Richtervorbehalt, ohne Verdacht.

.

Wir werden täglich zugeschüttet mit Twittertiraden von No. 45.

.

Es heißt BAMF, es heißt Ankerzentren, es heißt Abschiedegeschwindigkeit, es koaliiert bereits die CDU mit der AfD (beide natürlich auf dem USA-Ticket), es heißt migrationspolitische Sprecherin der FDP und CSU-Staatssektretär Stephan Meyer stammt aus einem Hutgeschäft.

.

Das neue angebliche Datenschutzgesetz der EU zum 25. Mai 2018, wird ohne öffentliche Diskussion und Abstimmung einfach der EU zugeschoben, die dafür gar keine Kompetenz hat, nationale Verfassungen abzuschaffen: DSGVO heißt das Gespenst.

.

DSGVO – und die Schlaftabletten der Parteien singen zärtlich: SICHERHEIT, SCHUTZ, NICHTS ZU BEFÜRCHTEN – DSGVO ist nur zur Räsonnierung der ganz großen Datenkraken, wie FACEBOOK oder GOOGLE.

.

Und es ist die LÜGENPRESSE, die solche LÜGEN jeden Tag breiter und breiter tritt.

.

Wäre DSGVO für FACEBOOK, hätte man es für FACEBOOK widmen müssen. Hätte man etwas gegen die Rechtswidrigkeit der Daten-Geschäfte von FACEBOOK, GOOGLE, AMAZON, EBAY – dann könnte man schon heute nach dem geltenden Recht, diese ANARCHISTEN stoppen.

.

Oder will jemand behaupten, wenn Deutschland gegen FACEBOOK nach deutschen Recht klagen würde, könne FACEBOOK einfach weiter machen, wie gehabt: TOO big to fail?

.

Auch wenn die meisten FACEBOOK-Nutzer tatsächlich zu dumm sind, den Verlockungen der Datenkrake zu widerstehen, liegt darin doch einerseits Sittenwidrigkeit. Das GG schützt auch die Bürger vor Mehrheitsentscheidungen gegen die Sitten. Es ist nicht erlaubt, DUMMHEIT zur gebräuchlichen Sitte zu etablieren.

.

Aber der deutsche Staat macht es sich leicht, der US-Staathalterin MERKEL IV in die USA-Nachsorge-Kultur zu folgen. Und wenn es über den Umweg E U-Gesetz geht wie bei DSGVO.

.

wie direkt muss eine AfD-Abgeordnete auf der US-Lohnliste stehen?

Philip Roth 1933 – 2018 Kurznachruf

Mai 23, 2018

Lichtgeschwindigkeit 8190

Am Mittwoch, 23. Mai 2018

.

.

Philip Milton Roth, geboren am 19. März 1933 in Newark, New Jersey, ist jetzt 85jährig, am 22. Mai 2018, in New York City gestorben. Philip Roth war ein auf den Holokaust fixierter amerikanisch-jüdischer Schriftsteller.

.

Die letzten Jahre lebte er als Ruheständler in der New Yorker Upper West Side. Am 22. Mai 2018 starb Philip Roth in einem Krankenhaus in Manhattan.

.

Roths Romane, Erzählungen und Essays wurden verschiedentlich zum Anlaß, ihn zum Kandidat für den Nobelpreis für Literatur vorzuschlagen.

.

Roths Werke sind häufig autobiografisch geprägt. Seine Romanfiguren teilen seine Herkunft aus einer jüdischen Familie der unteren Mittelschicht, seine Geburtsstadt Newark, die späteren Wohnsitze New York und eine Farm in Connecticut sowie die Erfahrungen seiner beiden Ehen. Nachdem bereits Roths Erstling „Goodbye, Columbus“ im Jahr 1959 eine positive Aufnahme in der Kritik fand, wurde zehn Jahre später der Roman „Portnoy’s Complaint“ zu einem Skandalerfolg. Ab den 1970er Jahren begleitete die Figur Nathan Zuckerman Roths Werk durch zwei Trilogien und mehrere Einzelromane.

.

Vor einem israelischen Publikum stellte sich Philip Roth mit einer häufig zitierten Aussage zu seiner kulturellen Identität vor: Er sei ein amerikanischer Schriftsteller, der zufällig über Juden schreibe. Allerdings kann man laut Timothy Parrish Roths Identität als Amerikaner nicht von seiner Identität als Jude trennen. Die Prämisse von Roths Werk sei, dass er seine historische Situation als Amerikaner durch die Augen eines Juden und mit dem Hintergrund einer jüdischen Herkunft erlebe. Sein Fokus liegt auf den Nachkommen europäischer Juden, die in Amerika die Freiheit kennenlernen, selbst zu entscheiden, ob und wie sie sich als Juden empfinden. Dabei sind sie sich jederzeit der beiden epochalen Ereignisse bewusst, die während ihrer Lebenszeit die jüdische Geschichte bestimmt haben: des Holokausts und der Gründung Israels.

.

Im Verlauf seiner Karriere verfasste er über 30 Werke. Für seine Arbeit erhielt Roth zahlreiche Auszeichnungen, darunter den Pulitzer-Preis.

.

Gegenüber dem französischen Kulturmagazin Les Inrocks gab Roth im Oktober 2012 bekannt, dass Nemesis sein letztes Buch gewesen sei. Mit 74 Jahren habe er begonnen, seine Lieblingsautoren wie Dostojewski, Turgenew, Conrad oder Hemingway ebenso erneut zu lesen wie seine eigenen Werke. Er sei zum Ergebnis gelangt, das Beste aus seinen Möglichkeiten gemacht zu haben, und wolle weder weiter als Autor arbeiten noch neue Literatur lesen oder darüber sprechen. Wie er später erläuterte, fühlte er nicht mehr die geistige und körperliche Kraft in sich, eine längere kreative Arbeit zu bewältigen. Im Oktober 2012 gab Roth bekannt, sich vom Schreiben zurückzuziehen.

WordPress in LICHTGESCHWINDIGKEIT übergriffig mit DSGVO

Mai 23, 2018

Am Mittwoch, 23. Mai 2018

.

Kerner hat Hörner

.

Nachdem Google schon längst alle Nutzer und alle Youtube-Kunden in die Google+-Haft genommen hat, zieht jetzt WORDPRESS nach:

Heute erschien die lapidare Botschaft beim LOG-IN für dietmarmoews LICHTGESCHWINDIGKEIT im Globus mit Vorgarten unserer Tage:

.

KEIN ZUGANG … wenn nicht durch KLICK die neuen TERMS OF SERVICE bestätigt werden.

.

Das bedeutet für mich, als Autor und V.i.S.d.P., da die Rechtspflege in dieser IT-Haifisch-Wirtschaft für einen Menschen zu viel kostbare Zeit kosten kann und zu viel sinnloses Geld kosten kann, mit dieser täglichen PUBLIZISTIK in LICHTGESCHWINDIGKEIT aufzuhören (ich finde es längst würdelos, dass Benutzer meines Blogs, ohne mein Einverständnis, von WordPress COOKIES in ihren Rechner gesetzt bekommen).

.

Nun musste ich also heute am 23. Mai 2018, mit Blick auf den 25. Mai lesen:

1. WordPress.com.

  • Your WordPress.com Account and Website. If you create a blog or website on WordPress.com, you are responsible for maintaining the security of your account and blog, and you are fully responsible for all activities that occur under the account and any other actions taken in connection with the blog. You must immediately notify Automattic of any unauthorized uses of your blog, your account, or any other breaches of security. Automattic will not be liable for any acts or omissions by you, including any damages of any kind incurred as a result of such acts or omissions.
  • Responsibility of Contributors. If you operate a blog, comment on a blog, post material to WordPress.com, post links on WordPress.com, or otherwise make (or allow any third party to make) material available (any such material, “Content”), you are entirely responsible for the content of, and any harm resulting from, that Content or your conduct. That is the case regardless of what form the Content takes, which includes, but is not limited to text, photo, video, audio, or code. By using WordPress.com, you represent and warrant that your Content and conduct do not violate these Terms or the User Guidelines. By submitting Content to Automattic for inclusion on your website, you grant Automattic a world-wide, royalty-free, and non-exclusive license to reproduce, modify, adapt and publish the Content solely for the purpose of displaying, distributing, and promoting your blog. This license allows Automattic to make publicly-posted content available to third parties selected by Automattic (through Firehose, for example) so that these third parties can analyze and distribute (but not publicly display) your content through their services. You also give other WordPress.com users permission to share your Content on other WordPress.com websites and add their own Content to it (aka to reblog your Content), so long as they use only a portion of your post and they give you credit as the original author by linking back to your website (the reblogging function on WordPress.com does this automatically!). If you delete Content, Automattic will use reasonable efforts to remove it from WordPress.com, but you acknowledge that caching or references to the Content may not be made immediately unavailable. Without limiting any of those representations or warranties, Automattic has the right (though not the obligation) to, in Automattic’s sole discretion, (i) reclaim your username or website’s URL due to prolonged inactivity, (ii) refuse or remove any content that, in Automattic’s reasonable opinion, violates any Automattic policy or is in any way harmful or objectionable, or (iii) terminate or deny access to and use of WordPress.com to any individual or entity for any reason. Automattic will have no obligation to provide a refund of any amounts previously paid.
  • Web Traffic. We use a third party, comScore, Inc. (“comScore”), to measure WordPress.com’s audience and usage. By hosting your site on WordPress.com, you agree to assign the traffic relating to your website to Automattic and authorize us to sign a Traffic Assignment Letter on your behalf for comScore audience measurement reports. Your website’s traffic will be included under Automattic. You understand that your website will not receive credit for traffic in these reports, and you must not assign your website’s traffic to any other party. If we or comScore require additional documentation to verify ownership of your website or domain name, you agree to make reasonable efforts to accommodate such requests.
  • HTTPS. We offer free HTTPS on all WordPress.com sites by default, including those using custom domains, via Let’s Encrypt. By signing up and using a custom domain on WordPress.com, you authorize us to act on the domain name registrant’s behalf (by requesting the necessary certificates, for example) for the sole purpose of providing HTTPS on your site.
  • Advertisements. Automattic reserves the right to display advertisements on your blog unless you have purchased a plan that includes the removal of ads.
  • Attribution. Automattic reserves the right to display attribution text or links in your site footer or toolbar, attributing WordPress.com or the theme author, for example. The toolbar may not be altered or removed. Attribution text or links may only be hidden if you are subscribed to WordPress.com Business or VIP.
  • Friends of WP.com Themes. By activating a partner theme from the Friends of WP.com section of our themes directory, you agree to that partner’s terms of service. You can opt out of their terms of service at any time by de-activating a partner theme.
  • VIP Service. VIP Hosting/Support and VIP Support services are provided by Automattic under the terms and conditions for each such service, which are located at vip.wordpress.com/hosting-tos and vip.wordpress.com/support-tos, respectively. By signing up for a VIP Hosting/Support or VIP Support services account, you agree to abide by such terms and conditions.

2. Jetpack.

  • Description. Jetpack is a plugin that connects your self-hosted WordPress website to WordPress.com’s infrastructure to give you the most powerful WordPress.com features.
  • Jetpack Content. You’re fully responsible for the content of any website you own that runs Jetpack (“Jetpack Content”).
  • License. You agree that we may scan your website, and compile aggregated/anonymized statistics for our internal use to optimize Jetpack’s performance.
  • Features. Jetpack includes various features, and you can visit Jetpack.com to learn more about them. Some features, like Enhanced Distribution, when activated, will include your Jetpack Content in Firehose. By activating these features, you grant us permission to display your Jetpack Content on WordPress.com for the purpose of distributing and promoting your website. Some features are on by default and others you need to enable manually. You can see which features are active, and activate and deactivate features, on your dashboard.
  • Storage of Information. Certain Jetpack features rely on WordPress.com servers to function, such as those that allow you to send email, publish links, relate posts to each other, or resize images. To take advantage of the performance boosting features of Jetpack, certain information about the content, settings, and setup of your site are synced with our servers, as described on our “What Data Does Jetpack Sync?” support page.

.

3. VaultPress.

  • Description. VaultPress is a subscription-based security and backup service for self-hosted WordPress websites.
  • VaultPress Content. VaultPress will backup your WordPress content (e.g., your WordPress database, plugins, themes, and uploads, as well as some additional files, as described this introduction to VaultPress) (“VaultPress Content”). You can view the Content that VaultPress backs up via your VaultPress dashboard. You’re fully responsible for your VaultPress Content. It’s your responsibility to ensure that your website’s Content abides by applicable laws and by these Terms. We don’t actively review the VaultPress Content.
  • Access. If you lose access to your WordPress.com account, you may not be able to access your backed up VaultPress Content.
  • License. By using VaultPress, you grant us access to your website’s servers for the purpose of backing up and securing your VaultPress Content, and restoring files and database information (which may include access details for multiple servers or accounts for each website that we backup). In order to address security vulnerabilities, we may push an upgrade to your site, or we may access your site to remove malicious code. We may also scan VaultPress Content, and compile aggregated/anonymized statistics for our internal use to optimize the performance of the VaultPress service. You also grant us a worldwide, royalty-free, and non-exclusive license to copy and store your VaultPress Content, to the extent necessary to operate the VaultPress service. These Terms don’t give us any rights in your VaultPress Content, beyond those we need to operate VaultPress. You own your VaultPress Content.
  • Prohibited Uses. When using VaultPress, you agree not to:
    • Publish material or engage in activity that is illegal under applicable law.
    • Use VaultPress to overburden Automattic’s systems, as determined by us in our sole discretion.
    • Disclose the sensitive personal information of others.
    • Send spam or bulk unsolicited messages.
    • Interfere with, disrupt, or attack any service or network.
    • Distribute material that is or enables malware, spyware, adware, or other malicious code.

4. Ecommerce.

There are certain features offered via WooCommerce, WooCommerce Services, or WordPress.com that enable you to sell items (goods, content, services, etc.) on your website (“Ecommerce Features”). If you use WooCommerce, the WooCommerce Use Terms also apply.

  • Usage of Information. WooCommerce Services may require Automattic’s servers, a connection to our partners, and/or data from your site, to work, as described on our “What Data Does Jetpack Sync?” support page.
  • Prohibited Uses. You may not use Ecommerce Features for any unlawful purposes, or in furtherance of illegal activities. We may terminate your access to Ecommerce Features if we determine (in our sole discretion) that your use is in any way harmful or objectionable. If your store is on WordPress.com, you must not violate our User Guidelines or Store Guidelines.
  • Third Party Services. You may choose to set up and/or use third party services, such Stripe or PayPal to collect payment, TaxJar to calculate taxes, or EasyPost to manage shipping. If you do so, be aware that some of your — and your customers’ — data may be passed to the respective third party, and the respective third party’s terms of service, privacy policy, and other policies may apply. We are not involved in these relationships. Please note that some of these third party services (like TaxJar) may be enabled by default, but you may disable them before your store is set up. If you do not want to use these third party services, please disable them.
  • Tax Calculations. Tax Calculations are provided by TaxJar. You are responsible for all taxes and fees associated with your ecommerce activities. You must collect, report, and/or pay the correct amounts to the appropriate authorities, if applicable, and if needed, inform your customers about any taxes they may be required to pay and issue appropriate invoices. While some Ecommerce Features allow you to include sales taxes or Value Added Taxes in transactions, you should not rely solely on these features. We make our best efforts to keep our content and documents up-to-date, but because the tax law changes rapidly, we cannot guarantee that all the services are completely current. Tax laws differ from jurisdiction to jurisdiction and may be subject to different interpretations by different authorities. We recommend you consult an appropriate tax professional for your specific tax situation.
  • Shipping Services.
    • Shipping labels are provided by EasyPost and allow you to take advantage of real-time shipping rates to purchase postage and print shipping labels from certain mailing services, such as USPS and Canada Post. We act only as an intermediary between you and these third parties; we are not involved in any way with your product or its shipment. We also do not warrant that the results you obtain from the use of these services (rates and labels, for example) will be accurate or reliable.
    • You are solely responsible for compliance with all applicable rules and regulations, including domestic and international shipping and customs regulations and those of the relevant mailing service. For example, if you use USPS postage, you will need to comply with their shipping restrictions and mailing standards, among others.
    • In addition, you are solely responsible for customs charges, import taxes or duties, or any other charges related to your shipments. If any charges are assessed against us as a result of your use of the shipping services, you will reimburse us for the full amount within 7 days.
    • You authorize us to charge you for the fees associated with each shipping label you create. Each fee will be charged separately to the payment method you provided in your WordPress.com account, which you can view and manage as described the Payments support page. If you have multiple payment methods, you can select which should be used for the shipping label service. If we are unable to collect payment from you for these fees, you will be responsible for payment within 7 days; please contact us to remit payment.
    • Refunds for unused shipping labels must be requested in your store’s wp-admin within 30 days of creating the label. Please note that depending on your bank and the third party involved, it may take up to 45 days for your refund to issue. If you haven’t received your refund within this time frame, please contact us.
    • You may not transfer or sell postage and/or shipping labels to a third party.
  • Your Responsibilities. You are solely responsible for all of your ecommerce activities, including your store, your items, its operation, all applicable taxes and fees, compliance with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), and compliance with any applicable laws. Among other things, this means that:
    • You should use your best judgment when setting up your store, operating your store, processing payments, and selling items. For example, you may not want to accept check payments if you are not comfortable sharing your mailing address with a customer, or you may want to publish payment and return policies.
    • We are not involved in your relationships or transactions with any customer or potential customer.
    • You are responsible for resolving all support questions, comments, and complaints, including refunds, chargebacks, or pricing questions. You should provide contact information so that customers may contact you with questions or complaints.
    • You are responsible for delivering items sold to your customers, and for fulfilling all promises, representations, or warranties you make to them in connection with a sale.

5. Responsibility of Visitors.

Automattic has not reviewed, and cannot review, all of the material, including computer software, posted to our Services, and cannot therefore be responsible for that material’s content, use or effects. By operating our Services, Automattic does not represent or imply that it endorses the material there posted, or that it believes such material to be accurate, useful, or non-harmful. You are responsible for taking precautions as necessary to protect yourself and your computer systems from viruses, worms, Trojan horses, and other harmful or destructive content. Our Services may contain content that is offensive, indecent, or otherwise objectionable, as well as content containing technical inaccuracies, typographical mistakes, and other errors. Our Services may also contain material that violates the privacy or publicity rights, or infringes the intellectual property and other proprietary rights, of third parties, or the downloading, copying or use of which is subject to additional terms and conditions, stated or unstated. Automattic disclaims any responsibility for any harm resulting from the use by visitors of our Services, or from any downloading by those visitors of content there posted.

.

6. Fees, Payment, and Renewal.

  • Fees. Some of our Services are offered for a fee — such as Jetpack and VaultPress, while other Services may be free with optional paid upgrades, such as a WordPress.com plan (“Paid Services”). By using a Paid Service, you agree to pay the specified fees, which we’ll bill or charge you for in regular intervals (such as monthly, annually, or biennially), on a pre-pay basis until you cancel, which you can do at any time by contacting the relevant support team.
  • Payment. If your payment fails or Paid Services are otherwise not paid for on time, we may immediately cancel or revoke your access to the Paid Services. If you contact your bank or credit card company to decline or reverse the charge of fees for Paid Services, we may revoke your access to our Services in general.
  • Automatic Renewal. To ensure uninterrupted service, our Paid Services are automatically renewed. This means that unless you cancel a Paid Service before the end of the applicable subscription period, it will automatically renew, and you authorize us to invoice you or use any payment mechanism we have on record for you to collect the then-applicable subscription fee (as well as any taxes). Your Paid Services are renewed for the same interval of time. For example, if you purchase a WordPress.com annual plan, you will be charged each year.
  • Refunds. While you may cancel a Paid Service at any time, refunds are issued in our sole discretion.
  • Fee Changes. We may change our fees at any time. When applicable, we may give you advance notice of the fee changes. If you don’t agree with the fee changes, you can cancel your Paid Service.

.

7. Content Posted on Other Websites.

We have not reviewed, and cannot review, all of the material, including computer software, made available through the websites and webpages to which WordPress.com links, and that link to WordPress.com. Automattic does not have any control over those non-WordPress.com websites, and is not responsible for their contents or their use. By linking to a non-WordPress.com website, Automattic does not represent or imply that it endorses such website. You are responsible for taking precautions as necessary to protect yourself and your computer systems from viruses, worms, Trojan horses, and other harmful or destructive content. Automattic disclaims any responsibility for any harm resulting from your use of non-WordPress.com websites and webpages.

If you use any Third Party Services, you understand that:

  • Some Third Party Services may request or require access to your (yours, your visitors’, or customers’) data. If you grant access, your data will handled in accordance with the Third Party’s privacy policy and practices. We do not have control over how a Third Party Service may use your data. You should carefully review Third Party Services’ data collection, retention, and use policies and practices before enabling Third Party Services.
  • Third Party Services may not work appropriately with your website, and we may not be able to provide support for issues caused by any Third Party Services.
  • If you have questions or concerns about how a Third Party Service operates, or need support, please contact the Third Party directly.

In rare cases, we may at our discretion, suspend, disable, or remove Third Party Services from your account or website.

9. Copyright Infringement and DMCA Policy.

As Automattic asks others to respect its intellectual property rights, it respects the intellectual property rights of others. If you believe that material located on or linked to by WordPress.com violates your copyright, you are encouraged to notify Automattic in accordance with Automattic’s Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”) Policy. Automattic will respond to all such notices, including as required or appropriate by removing the infringing material or disabling all links to the infringing material. Automattic will terminate a visitor’s access to and use of the website if, under appropriate circumstances, the visitor is determined to be a repeat infringer of the copyrights or other intellectual property rights of Automattic or others. In the case of such termination, Automattic will have no obligation to provide a refund of any amounts previously paid to Automattic.

.

10. Intellectual Property.

This Agreement does not transfer from Automattic to you any Automattic or third party intellectual property, and all right, title, and interest in and to such property will remain (as between the parties) solely with Automattic. Automattic, WordPress, WordPress.com, the WordPress.com logo, and all other trademarks, service marks, graphics and logos used in connection with WordPress.com or our Services, are trademarks or registered trademarks of Automattic or Automattic’s licensors. Other trademarks, service marks, graphics and logos used in connection with our Services may be the trademarks of other third parties. Your use of our Services grants you no right or license to reproduce or otherwise use any Automattic or third-party trademarks.

.

11. Domain Names.

We act as a registrar and also work with third party registrars in order to provide our users with domain name services. When you register or renew a domain name on WordPress.com, or when you transfer an existing domain name to WordPress.com, you become bound by the relevant registrar’s terms and conditions, either the Automattic Domain Name Registration Agreement, Tucows Domain Inc. Registration Agreement, or this Domain Name Registration Agreement, in addition to these Terms. Which registrar terms apply depends on the TLD you choose, and in some cases, the date you register your domain, so please see this table that outlines all of the TLDs we offer and the applicable registration agreement, to determine which agreement(s) apply to you. These registrar terms are incorporated by reference into these Terms.

Further, your use of the domain name is also subject to the policies of the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (“ICANN”). You can read about your rights and responsibilities as a domain name registrant under ICANN’s Registrar Accreditation Agreement and about domain name registration generally.

Please refer to the domain pricing and available TLDs page for details about fees associated with domain registrations, renewals, and redemptions.

Automattic is an authorized reseller of G Suite, but makes no warranties about the services provided by Google, and disclaims Google’s liability for any damages arising from our distribution and resale of their services. Google will provide technical support for its services, per its Technical Support Services Guidelines. If you’re a business and purchase G Suite for your WordPress.com website, you represent that you have 749 or fewer staff members.

.

13. Changes.

We are constantly updating our Services, and that means sometimes we have to change the legal terms under which our Services are offered. If we make changes that are material, we will let you know by posting on one of our blogs, or by sending you an email or other communication before the changes take effect. The notice will designate a reasonable period of time after which the new terms will take effect. If you disagree with our changes, then you should stop using our Services within the designated notice period. Your continued use of our Services will be subject to the new terms. However, any dispute that arose before the changes shall be governed by the Terms (including the binding individual arbitration clause) that were in place when the dispute arose.

.

14. Termination.

Automattic may terminate your access to all or any part of our Services at any time, with or without cause, with or without notice, effective immediately.

(“JAMS”) by three arbitrators appointed in accordance with such Rules. The arbitration shall take place in San Francisco, California, in the English language and the arbitral decision may be enforced in any court.

This is our current Terms of Service, last updated on January 31, 2018.

The gist:

We (the folks at Automattic) run a blog and website hosting platform called WordPress.com and would love for you to use it. WordPress.com’s basic service is free, and we offer paid upgrades for advanced features such as domain hosting and extra storage. Our service is designed to give you as much control and ownership over what goes on your website as possible and encourage you to express yourself freely. However, be responsible in what you publish. In particular, make sure that none of the prohibited items (like spam, viruses, or serious threats of violence) appear on your website.

If you find a WordPress.com website that you believe violates these Terms of Service, please visit our dispute resolution & reporting page.

We also have additional services and products designed to make the web a better place like WordPress.com VIP, WooCommerce, Longreads, VaultPress, Akismet, and Jetpack.

(We’ve made the below Terms of Service available under a Creative Commons Sharealike license, which means you’re more than welcome to repurpose it for your own use. Just make sure to replace references to us with ones to you, and if you don’t mind we’d appreciate a link to WordPress.com somewhere on your website. We spent a lot of money and time on the below, and other people shouldn’t need to do the same.)

.

Terms of Service:

The following terms and conditions (“Terms”) govern all use of the WordPress.com website and all content, services, and products available at or through the website, including, but not limited to, Jetpack (“Jetpack”), VaultPress (“VaultPress”), and WordPress.com VIP (“VIP Service”), (taken together, our “Services”). Our Services are offered subject to your acceptance without modification of all of the terms and conditions contained herein and all other operating rules, policies (including, without limitation, Automattic’s Privacy Policy) and procedures that may be published from time to time by Automattic (collectively, the “Agreement”). You agree that we may automatically upgrade our Services, and these Terms will apply to any upgrades. If you reside in the United States or Brazil, your agreement is with Automattic Inc. (US), and if you reside outside of the United States or Brazil, your agreement is with Aut O’Mattic Ltd. (Ireland) (each, “Automattic” or “we”).

Please read this Agreement carefully before accessing or using our Services. By accessing or using any part of our Services, you agree to become bound by the Terms of this Agreement. If you do not agree to all the Terms of this Agreement, then you may not access or use any of our Services. If these Terms are considered an offer by Automattic, acceptance is expressly limited to these Terms.

.

1. WordPress.com.

  • Your WordPress.com Account and Website. If you create a blog or website on WordPress.com, you are responsible for maintaining the security of your account and blog, and you are fully responsible for all activities that occur under the account and any other actions taken in connection with the blog. You must immediately notify Automattic of any unauthorized uses of your blog, your account, or any other breaches of security. Automattic will not be liable for any acts or omissions by you, including any damages of any kind incurred as a result of such acts or omissions.
  • Responsibility of Contributors. If you operate a blog, comment on a blog, post material to WordPress.com, post links on WordPress.com, or otherwise make (or allow any third party to make) material available (any such material, “Content”), you are entirely responsible for the content of, and any harm resulting from, that Content or your conduct. That is the case regardless of what form the Content takes, which includes, but is not limited to text, photo, video, audio, or code. By using WordPress.com, you represent and warrant that your Content and conduct do not violate these Terms or the User Guidelines. By submitting Content to Automattic for inclusion on your website, you grant Automattic a world-wide, royalty-free, and non-exclusive license to reproduce, modify, adapt and publish the Content solely for the purpose of displaying, distributing, and promoting your blog. This license allows Automattic to make publicly-posted content available to third parties selected by Automattic (through the Automattic Firehose, for example) so that these third parties can analyze and distribute (but not publicly display) your content through their services. You also give other WordPress.com users permission to share your Content on other WordPress.com websites and add their own Content to it (aka to reblog your Content), so long as they use only a portion of your post and they give you credit as the original author by linking back to your website (the reblogging function on WordPress.com does this automatically!). If you delete Content, Automattic will use reasonable efforts to remove it from WordPress.com, but you acknowledge that caching or references to the Content may not be made immediately unavailable. Without limiting any of those representations or warranties, Automattic has the right (though not the obligation) to, in Automattic’s sole discretion, (i) reclaim your username or website’s URL due to prolonged inactivity, (ii) refuse or remove any content that, in Automattic’s reasonable opinion, violates any Automattic policy or is in any way harmful or objectionable, or (iii) terminate or deny access to and use of WordPress.com to any individual or entity for any reason. Automattic will have no obligation to provide a refund of any amounts previously paid.
  • Web Traffic. We use a third party, comScore, Inc. (“comScore”), to measure WordPress.com’s audience and usage. By hosting your site on WordPress.com, you agree to assign the traffic relating to your website to Automattic and authorize us to sign a Traffic Assignment Letter on your behalf for comScore audience measurement reports. Your website’s traffic will be included under Automattic. You understand that your website will not receive credit for traffic in these reports, and you must not assign your website’s traffic to any other party. If we or comScore require additional documentation to verify ownership of your website or domain name, you agree to make reasonable efforts to accommodate such requests.
  • HTTPS. We offer free HTTPS on all WordPress.com sites by default, including those using custom domains, via Let’s Encrypt. By signing up and using a custom domain on WordPress.com, you authorize us to act on the domain name registrant’s behalf (by requesting the necessary certificates, for example) for the sole purpose of providing HTTPS on your site.
  • Advertisements. Automattic reserves the right to display advertisements on your blog unless you have purchased an Ad-free Upgrade or a VIP Service account.
  • Attribution. Automattic reserves the right to display attribution text or links in your site footer or toolbar, attributing WordPress.com or the theme author, for example. The toolbar may not be altered or removed. Attribution text or links may only be hidden if you are subscribed to WordPress.com Business or VIP.
  • Friends of WP.com Themes. By activating a partner theme from the Friends of WP.com section of our themes directory, you agree to that partner’s terms of service. You can opt out of their terms of service at any time by de-activating a partner theme.
  • Payment and Renewal.
    • General Terms. Optional paid services such as extra storage or domain purchases are available (any such services, an “Upgrade”). By selecting an Upgrade you agree to pay Automattic the monthly or annual subscription fees indicated for that service. Payments will be charged on a pre-pay basis on the day you sign up for an Upgrade and will cover the use of that service for a monthly or annual subscription period as indicated. More details are available in our refund policy.
    • Automatic Renewal. Unless you notify Automattic before the end of the applicable subscription period that you want to cancel an Upgrade, your Upgrade subscription will automatically renew and you authorize us to collect the then-applicable annual or monthly subscription fee for such Upgrade (as well as any taxes) using any credit card or other payment mechanism we have on record for you. Upgrades can be canceled at any time in the Upgrades section of your website’s dashboard.
  • VIP Service. VIP Hosting/Support and VIP Support services are provided by Automattic under the terms and conditions for each such service, which are located at vip.wordpress.com/hosting-tos and vip.wordpress.com/support-tos, respectively.

.

5. Ecommerce.

There are certain features offered via WooCommerce, WooCommerce Services, or WordPress.com that enable you to sell items (goods, content, services, etc.) on your website (“Ecommerce Features”). If you use WooCommerce, the WooCommerce Use Terms also apply.

  • Usage of Information. WooCommerce Services may require Automattic’s servers, a connection to our partners, and/or data from your site, to work, as described on our “What Data Does Jetpack Sync?” support page.
  • Prohibited Uses. You may not use Ecommerce Features for any unlawful purposes, or in furtherance of illegal activities. We may terminate your access to Ecommerce Features if we determine (in our sole discretion) that your use is in any way harmful or objectionable. If your store is on WordPress.com, you must not violate our User Guidelines or Store Guidelines.
  • Third Party Services. You may choose to set up and/or use third party services, such Stripe or PayPal to collect payment, TaxJar to calculate taxes, or EasyPost to manage shipping. If you do so, be aware that some of your — and your customers’ — data may be passed to the respective third party, and the respective third party’s terms of service, privacy policy, and other policies may apply. We are not involved in these relationships. Please note that some of these third party services (like TaxJar) may be enabled by default, but you may disable them before your store is set up. If you do not want to use these third party services, please disable them.
  • Tax Calculations. Tax Calculations are provided by TaxJar. You are responsible for all taxes and fees associated with your ecommerce activities. You must collect, report, and/or pay the correct amounts to the appropriate authorities, if applicable, and if needed, inform your customers about any taxes they may be required to pay and issue appropriate invoices. While some Ecommerce Features allow you to include sales taxes or Value Added Taxes in transactions, you should not rely solely on these features. We make our best efforts to keep our content and documents up-to-date, but because the tax law changes rapidly, we cannot guarantee that all the services are completely current. Tax laws differ from jurisdiction to jurisdiction and may be subject to different interpretations by different authorities. We recommend you consult an appropriate tax professional for your specific tax situation.
  • Shipping Services.
    • Shipping labels are provided by EasyPost and allow you to take advantage of real-time shipping rates to purchase postage and print shipping labels from certain mailing services, such as USPS and Canada Post. We act only as an intermediary between you and these third parties; we are not involved in any way with your product or its shipment. We also do not warrant that the results you obtain from the use of these services (rates and labels, for example) will be accurate or reliable.
    • You are solely responsible for compliance with all applicable rules and regulations, including domestic and international shipping and customs regulations and those of the relevant mailing service. For example, if you use USPS postage, you will need to comply with their shipping restrictions and mailing standards, among others.
    • In addition, you are solely responsible for customs charges, import taxes or duties, or any other charges related to your shipments. If any charges are assessed against us as a result of your use of the shipping services, you will reimburse us for the full amount within 7 days.
    • You authorize us to charge you for the fees associated with each shipping label you create. Each fee will be charged separately to the payment method you provided in your WordPress.com account, which you can view and manage as described the Payments support page. If you have multiple payment methods, you can select which should be used for the shipping label service. If we are unable to collect payment from you for these fees, you will be responsible for payment within 7 days; please contact us to remit payment.
    • Refunds for unused shipping labels must be requested in your store’s wp-admin within 30 days of creating the label. Please note that depending on your bank and the third party involved, it may take up to 45 days for your refund to issue. If you haven’t received your refund within this time frame, please contact us.
    • You may not transfer or sell postage and/or shipping labels to a third party.
  • Your Responsibilities. You are solely responsible for all of your ecommerce activities, including your store, your items, its operation, all applicable taxes and fees, compliance with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), and compliance with any applicable laws. Among other things, this means that:
    • You should use your best judgment when setting up your store, operating your store, processing payments, and selling items. For example, you may not want to accept check payments if you are not comfortable sharing your mailing address with a customer, or you may want to publish payment and return policies.
    • We are not involved in your relationships or transactions with any customer or potential customer.
    • You are responsible for resolving all support questions, comments, and complaints, including refunds, chargebacks, or pricing questions. You should provide contact information so that customers may contact you with questions or complaints.
    • You are responsible for delivering items sold to your customers, and for fulfilling all promises, representations, or warranties you make to them in connection with a sale.

Dietmar Moews meint: Besonders lachen musste ich über die „Ewigkeits- bzw. Unkündbarkeitsformel 14“. Was einerseits „Automattic“ sei, soll andererseits „survive termination .. without limitation“ sein. Da muss dann der Jurist aber schön definieren, was unter „without limitation“ rechtlich bedeuten soll. Das weiß zunächst keiner.

.

„…14. Termination.

Automattic may terminate your access to all or any part of our Services at any time, with or without cause, with or without notice, effective immediately. If you wish to terminate this Agreement or your WordPress.com account (if you have one), you may simply discontinue using our Services. All provisions of this Agreement which by their nature should survive termination shall survive termination, including, without limitation, ownership provisions, warranty disclaimers, indemnity and limitations of liability.“

America the beautifulO beautiful for pilgrim feet
Whose stern impassioned stress
A thoroughfare for freedom beat
Across the wilderness.
America! America!
God mend thine ev’ry flaw,
Confirm thy soul in self-control,
Thy liberty in law.

„… 19. General Representation and Warranty.
