9. Operation Rules of blogs, web pages of artists, chat and "events" service of "mygreek.fm"
9.1. Principles for the dissemination of news
When a blog or a web page of an artist or the chat or "events" service is used as a medium for the dissemination of news, i.e. information ("contents") on true facts, which concern broader number of readers, the following principles must be observed:
(a) Disclosure must refer to the entire truth without distortion, alteration or presentation of selective items from the news transmitted;
(b) The accuracy of news must be controlled prior to its transmission by any means offered, such as the cross examination of the information with the collection of items from two different sources minimum that are independent of each other;
(c) When the news may have a negative effect on the reputation of a person, its transmission must be followed by a full quotation of the information that supports the accuracy thereof, on condition that it has been collected by commonly accepted and legal means - otherwise the disclosure of such news must be avoided;
(d) The news (information on a true fact) must be clearly distinguished from the comment of the blog (constructions, evaluations, critics, characterizations);
(e) The title of the text must correspond to its contents (principle of relativity between title - news);
(f) The use of photos, pictures, graphic images or other presentations must be made with accuracy, reference to the source - unless the data have been given on condition of confidentiality - and mention to the scientific methods by which they were prepared;
(g) The news must be transmitted without any bias from personal, political, social, religious, racial, philosophical and cultural views or beliefs of the blogger - these will be expressed in the context of the commentary or criticism thereof;
(h) Provided there are more sides or opinions to true facts, they must all be presented or at least the most representative of them, for the completeness of the cover.
9.2. Principles on the commentary and the criticism of facts or persons
The users and commentators must respect:
(a) The presumption of innocence, i.e. no incrimination prior to the final sentence of someone for an offence that is punishable by the law;
(b) Minors, senior citizens, individuals with special needs and serious health problems, on condition that the commentator is aware of such capacities;
(c) Individuals that are in a state of mourning, mental shock and pain, as well as those with an apparent psychological problem, avoiding the exposure of such special state.
The freedom of expression allows for acute criticism and irony but not insult, libel, slanderous publications and insult of the personality of others.
9.3. Free software and intellectual property
The use of speech artefacts and the art of third parties ("contents") is allowed on condition such is done for reasons of informing, documenting or commenting on the same artifacts. The use of such artefacts ("contents") must always occur with absolute respect of the terms provided for in any open code licenses that accompany the artifact and in every case, the use must:
(a) Be accompanied by mention made to the creator and the producer of the artifact and if they are not known, by link to the source from where the blogger detected the artifact;
(b) Not obstruct the regular commercial or other exploitation of the artifact on behalf of the creator or the producer;
(c) Not distort the integrity of the artifact, by creating a wrong impression about its contents or quality.
9.4. Pseudonyms, domain names, trademarks, titles, trade names and distinguishing features
Users must not use pseudonyms, domain names, trademarks, titles, trade names and distinguishing features of third parties in a manner that could lead to the misleading of readers or exploitation of the fame of such features in order to recruit readers.
Anonymity is a right of Internet users, ensured by the environment of advanced freedom of expression, but in any case, its use for waiving liability for illegal acts is abusive. The lifting of anonymity, however, is permitted only upon the intervention of the competent state authorities. Anonymity must be absolutely respected as the choice of someone writing and it must in no case constitute the subject of negative criticism by the participants giving their names. The disclosure of information from where the identity of a person may be determined (ex. profession, address, features, family status, past or parallel pseudonym, religious or political beliefs, sexual preference, origin, etc) constitutes a violation of his / her right to anonymity and is equally reprehensible as the disclosure of the name thereof.
9.6. Use of personal data
Any information referring to a natural person may be used only:
(a) On condition the prior explicit consent of the person is given or;
(b) The freedom of expression apparently supersedes and does not violate the right of the person to non use of the personal data thereof, especially when such has been expressed clearly and specifically;
(c) In any case, before any use if made of the information mentioned to a natural person, the user must have first informed such person on the use s/he will proceed to. An exception shall apply only for public figures or upon the permission of the Authority on the Protection of Personal Data.
9.7. Communication privacy
9.8. Right to complain for insulting contents
In case the use of the blog services offered by the Entity violates any of the principles mentioned above, apart from the rights to denunciation on matters of intellectual property or matters of personal data, the affected party shall be entitled to request for the intervention of the Entity, which is obliged to examine the issue and respond to the complainant within five (5) days on the action it proceeded to or intends to proceed to.
10. Applicable law and procedure to reach an out of court settlement of any dispute
10.1. For every dispute that may arise from the use of the services or and any other reason between the user/subscriber and the Entity, the Greek law shall apply and the competent courts of Athens will have jurisdiction over the case.
10.4. For any information, question and submission of complaints you may send your request by mail to the address:
