1. Services we offer.
Boukker develops a platform for exchange between people from the books and literature world. Our main services are aimed at readers, writers, publishers, bookstores, libraries and editorial workers, among others.
With such services, Boukker will help the reader find the desired book; booksellers get closer to customers, authors to contact publishers and literary agents. The word "Boukker" in Frisian means builder and a book is a building of words. With this platform, we intend to build a communal house for reading.
Once you register and browse the platform, you will discover its amazing possibilities. Boukker will not only allow you to upload your own content: photos, videos, comments and stories; but also your own blog, propose auctions of rare books, or expose your curriculum and skills in order to get in touch with potential contractors or employers.
This will not be the only thing you will find; many more own services are offered, but we invite you to discover them.
To facilitate your searches, Boukker takes into account your tastes and interests. Based on the information you provide us, we customize your publications, searches, events, as well as products that appear on your page or in other sections, such as the news of Boukker Store, which will be selected and classified exclusively for you.
Happy we will feel every time that Boukker helps a reader to find the longed-for book, to a writer to publish his originals, to a translator or editor to find a job, to a company or entity to make an advantageous business; to any lover of the world of books and literature to fulfill a dream or a wish.
But Boukker is not only limited to offer their own services, it also connects you with services, companies, places, and sites on the Internet of your interest and benefit.
2. Terms of service.
Most people like to make friends and exchange in harmony: to facilitate this, Boukker was created, a place of peace, dialogue and knowledge. However, unfortunately this is not always achieved, because a small number of people do not usually respect rules and rules of coexistence. We warn these last people that we work hard to combat behaviors that may affect the good functioning of the community. Our team strives to avoid behaviors that are incompatible with our Terms and Conditions of Use. In the case of inappropriate behaviors that threaten the platform or violate the Terms and Conditions of Use, the corresponding measures will be applied, which can range from offering help, to remove content, block access to certain functions, disable accounts or contact the appropriate authorities.
2.1 About the contents published by the user
So that Boukker can adequately meet the expectations of book lovers and literature that make up their community, it is necessary to establish a group of rules of coexistence. In this way, the publications must respect our Terms and Conditions of Use. As what may be inappropriate for one person, for cultural or other reasons may not be for a third party, before a dispute or claim Boukker reserves the right to decide whether the content is appropriate or not. It is important to understand that someone must always mediate in the settlement of disputes, and it is obvious that this task belongs to us. Therefore, in the case of more serious cases or the reiteration of negative behaviors by a certain user, we not only reserve the right to withdraw content, but also to cancel participation in the network.
2.2 In this respect, we warn that:
We do not accept pornography or explicit material describing graphic sex acts.
We do not accept offensive content. Humiliations, insults, insults, blasphemy, misogynistic, racist, xenophobic expressions and other manifestations that common sense typified as denigrating, abusive, unlawful, threatening or outrageous to one or more members of the community are intolerable. We reserve the right to determine when the content classifies as offensive, and the measures that must be applied in each case.
We take respect for the laws and the copyright and intellectual property of third parties very seriously. In this sense, we do not accept infringing or illegal content. It is the responsibility of the user to ensure that their content does not violate any law or copyright, trademark, privacy, publicity or any other right belonging to third parties. The fact that the content is easily accessible does not mean that it can be bought and sold or used for any commercial purpose.
On the other hand, the contents of public domain, can be used freely by any person, or can offer authorization so that only certain aspects are used openly.

They are licenses that allow us to publicly display on the Boukker timeline, the literary or artistic content (texts, videos, cartoons, drawings and others protected by copyright) that the user publishes on this platform.
When it says “translate content”, it refers to the platform's automatic translation services. For example, if the user posts a text in English, it means that another user who has defined Spanish as the default language, can use the platform's internal translator.

Commercial rights belong exclusively to its author.
These contents can be removed at any time and this license will be automatically broken.
