1. Forbidden activities

nlink.it may NOT be used creating shortened URLs that:
  • Are used in commercial email
  • Are used for unsolicited advertising (spam) including email and forum posts
  • Link to malicious content (phishing, viruses, trojans, adware, any other malware)
  • Link to any form of child pornography
  • Link to other URL shortening or redirection sites (these "chains" of links are often used to hide malicious usage)
  • Link to material that infringes copyright
In addition any use of nlink.it and any content linked to must be legal in Germany (where nlink.it is hosted).

2. URL rejection and removal

We can reject URLs when they are submitted or later remove or disable shortened URLs for any reason. Our intention is only to do this where they violate our terms or we have reason to suspect they do (e.g. if they appear on a blacklist we consult). We're only human and mistakes are occasionally made - we can reinstate disabled shortened URLs if we think it's appropriate to do so.

3. Excessive usage

We need to keep nlink.it fast and responsive for everyone so we limit the amount it can be used to levels we consider reasonable. Users may not open more than 5 concurrent connections to nlink.it at any time.

4. Our shortened URLs

Only the user who created a nlink.it shortened URL is able to delete the link again. Our shortened URLs could redirect anywhere, you follow them at your own risk and nlink.it is not responsible or liable for content you visit. If you think a shortened URL redirects to illegal content please report abuse to us.

5. Warranty and liability

The short version: nlink.it is free. We'll do our best to maintain it but we might have problems or things might break. If they do, we don't owe you anything. The long version: we provide nlink.it as a free service - as such it carries no warranty of any kind. nlink.it and its staff and owners are not liable for any loss or problem you might suffer due to using the service. This includes losses in the event that the service stops operating, is unavailable or slow, suffers data loss, or any other issue which might be considered detrimental to you.

6. Violation of our terms

If you violate our terms, depending on the severity of the abuse, we may disable shortened URLs you have created or block you from using nlink.it (and our other URL shorteners) temporarily or permanently. In cases of severe abuse or illegal usage we may report this to the relevant law enforcement agencies.
