x-ite.me : Site Rules
Terms of Service
x·ite.me provides it's members with an infrastructure to communicate and share LGBTQ related knowledge and culture using a private bit-torrent tracker and a forum. Accordingly, we are configured as an online service provider within the intent and meaning of international copyright law. We are not a cyber-locker and do not temporarily or permanently store any shared files on our servers other than member avatars and content presentation images. All files in a torrent's file list actually originate and reside on a member's computer.

We are a non-commercial site with no charges associated with use of the website or tracker, advertising free and accept no donations. We do not offer any additional premium services. Our intent is to provide a free multi-format resource for the worldwide LGBTQ community. Material shared on this site are for personal use only. The site is staffed by volunteer community members who donate their time to the site operation.

We do not open nor view the files of our users. Torrent submissions immediately post to the listing pages and are subject to review at any time. Any file is permitted under assumptions of fair use, license or ownership, irrespective of file format or content. However, files whose possession or distribution are illegal or otherwise prohibited on x·ite.me will be removed, such as:

  - Pornography with underage performers and child pornography
  - Validated notification of 3rd party copyright infringement
  - Inappropriate communication that is inflammatory, grossly inappropriate or prejudicial.
  - Material supporting hate, violence or otherwise public disorder.
  - Content from the Prohibited Content list

x·ite.me will quickly block such content after being notified of them and delete these files after an inspection time period of 14 days or less. During this time the site will make a determination of proper notification and inquiry regarding ownership of any disputed material per Site Policy and Procedures.

Members may not use this site to distribute any material when they do not have the legal right to do so. It is the responsibility of each user to adhere to these terms.

By activating an account and using our site or service, members agree that we are authorized to block access and delete torrent links for any violation.

We have a policy of terminating, without notice and without recourse, accounts of members who are repeat infringers of site policies, based on our sole judgement of suspicion or notifications we may receive.

You must be 18 years of age (21 years in some countries and certain areas of the US) to access this site.

By using this website, you are stating that you want to view sexually explicit material and that you believe that sexual acts between consenting adults are neither offensive nor obscene and that as an adult it is your right to receive/view sexually explicit material. You hereby agree the material you are viewing or downloading is for your own personal use and you will not expose minors to that material.

We reserve the right to modify, alter or add to any site policy. All users should therefore regularly check back to these policies to stay current on any such changes.
