(1) Description of service

Welcome to the Nordic Tech List!

The Nordic Tech List (“NTL”) is a site for all the facts, figures and news about the Nordic Tech ecosystems. The site is built on a graph database that includes startups, investors and people involved in Nordic Tech. The aim of NTL is to grow the Nordic Tech ecosystem both locally and internationally by creating an online platform for everything Nordic Tech. The goal is to become the first choice resource for all of the facts, figures and news about the Nordic Tech ecosystem. The NTL graph database is constantly growing from all of the data and information provided by users, investors and journalists.

Getting started

NTL is owned and fully funded by Dagens industri AB org no 556221-8494, BOX 34110, 100 26 Stockholm Sweden, (hereafter “Di” or “We”). Access to the Nordic Tech List (“the Service”) is offered free of charge and anyone interested in Nordic Tech may create a Di-account and register to access the NTL database Service. As soon as you have created an account (and registered for the Service) you can instantly contribute to the database by creating profiles and adding information and data about people, businesses and organizations involved in the Nordic Tech ecosystem. By submitting your name, age, a valid e-mail address and password of choice, or by signing in using a valid account with a third-party service, you are creating an account with the NTL and accepting the User Agreement. The User Agreement consists of (1) General terms for DI-accounts, (2) Terms of use Nordic Tech List Service and (3) the Privacy Policy.

As soon as you have created an account you may add your own profile to the database which is accessible to all users of the Nordic Tech List, and provide information on your role in the Nordic Tech ecosystem. You may add your own profile by submitting information manually or by supplying the credentials to your Twitter-account. If you are really cool, the NTL-team might already have created an editorial profile featuring you. You can claim control of such an editorial profile. Once you have added your own profile or claimed a profile you control the profile featuring you. However, other users may suggest changes to your profile subject to your approval.

You are required to keep the contact information provided at registration up to date. You agree to hold only one account which is required to be in your real name. We reserve the right to transfer control of any false profiles you create. You also affirm that you have not previously been suspended from using the Service or a DI-account.

(2) Database content

The Service offers different types of content protected by intellectual property right law.

The Nordic Tech List consists of two separate databases.

User generated content

The primary database consists of profiles on organizations and individual profiles claimed by the person featured. The Database offers features allowing Users to create, edit and modify content by adding and editing profiles. You may also upload bulk content by contacting the NTL team. You agree to the rules of conduct for adding to the database set out below. All content and information added by you will be associated with your username and/or SNS profile vis-à-vis Di. You are solely responsible for the content and data uploaded on behalf of your account. You may add or edit information on your profile, organizational or business profiles, and other User controlled profiles without prior checks by the NTL team/Di Digital editorial staff. I.e., Di does not moderate the database. However, there is one exception. Adding contacts to an organization or business profile is subject to editorial review before becoming viewable to others unless the person added has claimed his or her profile. In such cases the adding of a contact is subject to review by the person featured.

All NTL Users may modify, edit or delete any content uploaded by you in the database.

Di does not assume liability for any User-generated content, its accuracy or any legal claims associated with it. However, the aim of the NTL-database is the display of accurate information.

We reserve the right to promptly remove, or to disable access to, without notice, any user-generated content which we deem to be potentially defamatory, otherwise unlawful or in violation of any third party rights. Di’s obligation to monitor the database is limited to what is set forth in statutory law. Di’s efforts to delete unlawful content does not affect the responsibility of the one uploading the content.

Editorial database
