Nova Earth Community (“Service”) is a consciously created, Gaia-based spiritual community and transformational learning center inspired by the Council of Love‘s path of freedom and aliveness. Our vision is to raise spiritual and environmental consciousness and create a safe space for individual and collective transformation.
We are building Nova Earth Community to make a Love-based world more open and transparent, which we believe will create greater understanding and connection. Nova Earth Community promotes Love-based openness and transparency by giving our members greater power to share as individuals or collaboratively in a way that is flexible, powerful and visible to a larger audience. Heart-centered principles guide the Nova Earth Community in pursuing these goals. Achieving these principles should be constrained only by limitations of law, technology, and evolving social norms. We therefore establish these Principles as the foundation of the rights and responsibilities of those within this Service.
Freedom to Share and Connect
People should have the freedom to share whatever heart-based information they want, in any medium and any format, and have the right to connect online with anyone – any person, organization or service – as long as they both consent to the connection.
Ownership and Control of Information
People should own their information. They should have the freedom to share it with anyone they want and take it with them anywhere they want, including removing it from the Service. People should have the freedom to decide with whom they will share their information, and to set privacy controls to protect those choices. Those controls, however, are not capable of limiting how those who have received information may use it, particularly outside the Service.
Free Flow of Information
People should have the freedom to access all of the information made available to them by others. People should also have practical tools that make it easy, quick, and efficient to share and access this information.
Every Person – whether individual, advertiser, organization, or other entity – should have representation and access to distribution and information within the Service, regardless of the Person’s primary activity. There is a single set of principles, rights, and responsibilities that applies to all People using the Service.
People should have the freedom to build trust and reputation through their identity and connections, and should not have their presence on the Service removed for reasons other than those described in Nova Earth Community’s Statement of Rights and Responsibilities.
Open Platforms and Standards
People should have programmatic interfaces for sharing and accessing the information available to them. The specifications for these interfaces should be published and made available and accessible to everyone.
People should be able to use Nova Earth Community for free to establish a presence, connect with others, and share information with them. Every Person should be able to use the Nova Earth Community Service regardless of his or her level of participation or contribution.
The rights and responsibilities of Nova Earth Community and the People that use it are be described in a Statement of Rights and Responsibilities, which should not be inconsistent with these Principles.
This Service should publicly make available information about its purpose, plans, policies, and operations. The Service should have a process of notice and comment to provide transparency and encourage input on amendments to these Principles or to the Rights and Responsibilities.
One Love-based World
The Nova Earth Community and the Love-based messages by our users should transcend geographic and national boundaries and be available to everyone in the world.
