For the avoidance of doubt, caching of this site is permitted by a service provider acting in the normal course of its business as provided for in the Electronic Commerce (EC Directive) Regulations 2002.

4.2. Licensing of the whole database

You are not permitted to download the whole Website database. The aggregate data on this Website is protected by the Council of the European Union Directive 96/9/EC of 11 March 1996. Website data may not be extracted either in full or in part without express written consent of The Restart Project. Researchers who want access, please contact us.

You are free – and in fact encouraged – to use the Restarters name and logo, and associate yourself with it. You do not need to ask permission. For example, you are welcome to run local electronics events under the name ‘Restarters [place name]’, such as ‘Restarters Torino’. If you choose to do this, please let us know and we can offer support.

To do this, you can use the Restart Party Kit when planning and running your event. This is currently available in English and Spanish. It also provides guidance on using the Restart brand and logos.

However, we are NOT promoting the establishment of new Restart Project chapters, franchises or local NGOs and you are not permitted to use The Restart Project’s name or logo for this purpose.

You are responsible for all Content (including material and links) posted on the Website from your account, including any harm that results from that Content. That is the case regardless of whether the Content in question constitutes text, graphics, an audio file, or computer software.

  • the Content does not contain or install any malware, worms, viruses, Trojan horses or other harmful or destructive content;
  • the Content is not spam, is not machine- or randomly-generated, and does not contain unethical or unwanted commercial content designed to drive traffic to third party sites or boost the search engine rankings of third party sites, or to further unlawful acts (such as phishing) or mislead recipients as to the source of the material (such as spoofing);
  • the Content is not pornographic, does not contain threats or incite violence, and does not violate the privacy or publicity rights of any third party and;
  • your content is not named in a manner that misleads your readers into thinking that you are another person or company.

7. Responsibility of website visitors

We work to keep this space safe and actively moderate discussions where we can.

However, we have not reviewed, and cannot review, all of the material, including computer software, posted to the Website. Therefore we cannot be responsible for that material’s content, use or effects. By operating the Website, we do not represent or imply that we endorse the material there posted, or that we believe 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. The Website may contain content that is offensive, indecent, or otherwise objectionable, as well as content containing technical inaccuracies, typographical mistakes, and other errors.

The Restart Party is never responsible or liable for your use of the third party sites or the information on them.
