1. Introduction

Due to the exponential growth in the use of the Internet around the world, coupled with the ignorance of a sustainable use of the infrastructure behind it. HOTDCDEALS.COM seeks to increase public and private awareness of the environmental impact resulting from the infrastructure behind the internet, working inside data centers.

Historically, greater pressure has been exerted on companies to follow a green and renewable energy certification and policies. Therefore, the creation of sustainable data centers has become essential in an environmental and commercial sense.

We designed the Community Rules so you can help us nurture and protect this amazing community. By using HOTDCDEALS.COM you accept to comply with these rules.

On the other hand, and despite how much it can grow, we want HOTDCDEALS.COM to remain an authentic and safe place; in which the community can find an ethical and respectful environment to express with due respect to each member in the platform.

 

2. Our Values

 

Everyone is welcomed

HOTDCDEALS.COM welcomes social and international diversity, with an evident and wide range of cultures, ages and experiences. Keep this in mind when participating, not everyone will always agree with your comment or opinion, and all honest and well-intended comments deserve the same respect. Failure to comply with these rules may lead to content removal, account deactivation, or other restrictions without any monetary compensation.

This is especially true for new members. A community is based on the fact that new members participate freely and respectfully again and again with other members. Therefore, we encourage you to welcome new members, help them find their way, and forgive initial mistakes. It takes time to contribute to our community, we have all started small and not all had the time to read thoroughly in advance about all the peculiarities of our community. The more respectful we are, the better our community will be.

 

Respect and diversity

 

We are convinced that diversity is not only one of HOTDCDEALS.COM’s greatest strengths, but also that is one of its core values.

More diversity means more variety, innovative content, more green ideas and, ultimately, freedom of expression and respect within the community. Therefore, we do not tolerate content that discriminates against members, for example, due to their religion, gender, or origin.

 

 

Great community and good behavior

 

We all bring knowledge to this community. Before replying or writing a comment, for example, you should consider whether it adds relevant value to the community. Sometimes a funny or irrelevant comment can add a smile to readers, however, if we discover or get notified that the discussion in a thread is too far off topic, we reserve the right to remove any comments so that the discussion returns to a respectful tone.

Also, we would like to ask you to behave in the same way that you expect from others. We are firmly convinced that, whether in person or through this platform, one must also be cordial and kind to others, even if they are behind a screen, there are definitely differences of thought and they must be conveyed in a constructive and professional manner.

 

3. Unwanted content
