In addition, basic management of posts and information is the responsibility of the Host (Admin) and writer, and TIENET service does not guarantee any backups.

You can become closer with acquaintances through active invites and content production activities in TIENET. However, indiscriminate invitations or ill-considered promotional activities will cause unpleasant experiences for other TIENET members. If your invitation is reported by another user, your invitation activity as well as the use of TIENET service could be restricted for a certain period of time. Please also note that invitations which are unanswered for a certain period of time could be withdrawn. In addition, in the case TIENET users are discomfited via promotional activities, the individuals who ran the promotional activities and the entire TIENET itself may be suspended. Therefore, you are obliged to limit any excessive use of invitations or excessive promotional contents in order to avoid restrictions on service use. Furthermore, uploading repeated contents to multiple locations or contents defaming/slandering a specific individual, related to illegal materials or illegal activity could also be deleted. In case the content is suspended, the member who produced this content will be restricted from use of the TIENET service for a certain period of time. We would really appreciate it if you could behave decently while engaging in conversation on each theme so that the TIENET where you are participating could continue to prosper.

2.0. Guidelines & Policies that the TIENET Network Hosts (Admins) should abide by

Creating a TIENET COMMUNITY is making another space for communication, for the members who share the same interest. If you contemplate the purpose of the TIENET that you wish to open, it will guarantee a pleasurable experience for all of your TIENET members.

Only the Hosts (admins) will be granted with an authority to manage members, delete or hide content, activate/deactivate each feature of their TIENET Networks, designate co-admins and shut down the TIENET Networks. We carefully ask our fellow TIENET Networks admins to demonstrate your sensibility in utilizing the TIENET that you are operating suitable for each given characteristic since only the admins will have the access to control the entire TIENET activities, unlike other general members. Co-admins serve as the administrator playing the partial role of the admin including deleting post/comments and member withdrawal for a seamless operation of TIENET Networks. The scope of authority that the co-admin possesses as well as the number of co-admin shall vary according to a decision made by each TIENET Host (admin).

Please remember that there are some restrictions regarding inputs or edits of TIENET Network name/description/address that make up the basis of a TIENET. Only Host (Admin) has right to make some changes related to TIENET Network name/description/address. TINET creates a unique ID for each network and appsite which will remain unique for ever and Host (Admin) will not be able to change it. If there needs to be a name or description alteration of a TIENET Network that operates over five thousand members you must send the request changes directly to TIENET team, and only in case the same category of the TIENET name/description we review the changes once within six months. Additionally, permission to use the TIENET name and address can be revoked immediately at the request of companies and organizations owning various rights, such as trademark rights, and the name and description of the TIENET in question can be initialized. Furthermore, the TIENET Network that has a period of inactivity will be classified as a dormant TIENET Network and a member capable of creating contents will work as a co-admin with the existing admin and the TIENET Network’s address can be reclaimed and initialized.

Your precaution is also required when the Host (admin) has set the TIENET Network to be exposed in the search result. Non-members may view the contents or leave Shouts on posts in a public TIENET Network that can be previewed while searching. In addition, public TIENET Network s and their contents may be exposed in TIENET search results as well as that of NAVER. As such, if the TIENET is public then it can help create an active TIENET Network by recruiting various members to post contents. However, publicity settings should be considered carefully since the contents may be exposed unintentionally. When setting the Network or its name as public, you can set the member recruitment option to require manager approval in order to prevent problems from unknown members joining the TIENET.

TIENET Network Hosts(Admins) shall not collect or sell members' personal information without a prior approval from the members under any circumstances. If the admin processes members' personal information when operating a TIENET Network of which the purpose is product sales or group purchase, the admin shall notify the information holder in prior of the list of collected information, purpose of collection, retention period, the right to deny the collection of personal information and the disadvantage accompanied with such denial in a clear manner and ask for consent from the member. The admin shall be responsible for the situation resulting from violating such obligation to notify.

Admin possesses responsibility to manage contents and members. Admin shall monitor the contents at all times to filter any contents and documents banned by Terms of Use or Community Guideline. Admin may block a member if he or she is found to be inappropriate for being part of the TIENET Network and takes all the responsibilities accompanied with such action. If a member has committed an action that violates Terms of Use/Community Guideline and law, the admin shall bear responsibilities thereto initially and if no other measure is taken despite the correction request and warning from TIENET Network service, the admin shall forfeit its privileges or be restricted with service use. If the admin is unable to continue his/her normal activity within TIENET Network, the TIENET service may retrieve the admin privileges according to Community Guideline and transfer such right to another member in TIENET Network. Private TIENET Networks may be suspended depending on the TIENET’s privacy policies or contents details if there is a user report.

Should a transaction take place in TIENET Network, the admin shall take all the responsibilities in operating and managing contents regarding transaction and shall abide by the related legislation. In case the admin fails to fully abide by the related consumer protection regulations as well as TIENET Community Guideline while involving in online shopping and sales activity, the admin could be faced with restrictions on one's use of the service. TIENET Networks never asks for any transactions or online transaction related user info.

3.0. Transfer of admin rights

Depending upon the types of community and it’s legal formation, if the admin has only specific time to perform his duty, his / her account can be transferred to the successor based on the request made by admin and sub-admin. Such request shall be sent via email to

In case the admin is unable to access TIENET Network due to unforeseen matters or in case of death, admin delegation will proceed. If the death of the admin is confirmed with a death certificate or if there is no TIENET access record of admin (for three months for TIENETs with Co-Admins, and one month for TIENETs without Co-Admins), admin authority will be given to a member chosen by the opinions of the TIENET members.
