Terms & Conditions + Privacy Policy
Unfortunately we have to list this stuff to keep you and ourselves safe.
This application is held under the 'Modified BSD License'. Please read these terms and conditions completely, before using Lock Bot on your server, which is owned and operated by Adam_V, the Lock Bot staff, and developers.
Lock Bot is developed and maintained by Adam_V and Miguel_ who of which own the bot and all the assets related to the project. The terms and conditions are governed in accordance with the laws of the United Kingdom, specifically, England and Wales with partial governance in California as Discord ToS is enforced.
These terms and conditions will outline what our service is, what we do with it, and what that means for you.
Adam_V and the Lock Bot Staff reserve the right to terminate your access to the bot, without any advance notice. These terms were updated on 16 April 2022.

Legal

Although Lock Bot is entirely private and closed source, we will not allow any redistribution of code, logos, branding, or any asset related to the project or bot. We reserve the right to take legal actions if one of the actions above are present, which will also include DMCA (Digital Millennium Copyright Act) takedown requests. We reserve the right to alter, change, replace, and terminate the usage of this document at any time.

Inviting and Using Lock Bot

While using and inviting Lock Bot to your server, you accept the following terms below as well as the Terms of Service listed here.

What data do we collect?

Lock Bot does not store any data labelled as "personal," however, Lock Bot does store:
  • Server ID: automatically added to database upon bot joining server for other actions.
  • Guild/Server Channel Permissions: necessary to ensure your channel permissions are restored after certain commands are used.
  • User ID: this is only for those occasional bad apples we spot and don't want ruining this project for others.
  • Anti Scam Triggers: populates the figures of triggers and punishments received.
In some cases, Lock Bot may scan and read all channels, which only includes links and periodically triggered messages and file types as it's a necessary function for certain modules to properly determine if a link, file or message sent is malicious or can harm users. Messages will never be logged internally or externally by the Lock Bot Network as your server should remain private.

What data isn't collected?

As previously mentioned, we don't store any data labelled as "personal," so that means we'll never collect your:
  • Email Address
  • IP Address
  • Invite URL
  • Messages and/or Attachments
We plan to keep it this way as it should be as your privacy and safety will always be our #1 concern. However, in the future (and currently however not recommended as of now since it will alter the databases in a negative way) to evolve our service you will have the right to have your data in our databases deleted as required upon request under the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) and will be used as a general privacy practice in our services.

Legal (Cont.)

The Discord and Developer Terms of Service apply as well. It goes without saying that this bot and its use (by anybody who invokes commands with it) is subject to the Discord Terms of Service and the Discord Developer Terms of Service.

By using Lock Bot in any way, you agree to not use the bot for any illegal purposes and/or activities that might or will break Discord's Terms of Service or Guidelines.

Support & Discord

Support offered in our server and website are completely voluntary, subject to staff member availability and their consent to provide support. Network staff members are not obliged to help any member who they deem as "disorderly" and are encouraged not to help any user who partakes in activity that harm the bot, network, or well being of staff members.

Uptime

Lock Bot was a non-profit project, however due to rising costs we've opened a Patreon and accept donations. Whilst this project is still being ran to the best of its abilities, uptime and reliability may rapidly change at any given moment. It's something we wish to avoid although sometimes it's inevitable.

Server Responsibility

The Lock Bot Network, it's staff members and/or Developers will not and can not be held accountable for any damage (includes but not limited to deleted channels, messages, etc...) that occurs in a users Discord server while using the bot. Although we're always proactive on fixing bugs that can harm servers, in rare occasions some commands can fail leading to not altering channel permissions after a command is enabled/disabled and/or manage messages.
