Shalla Secure Services
Shalla's Blacklists is a collection of URL lists grouped into
several categories intended for the usage with URL filters like
Dansguardian. But the
usage is not limited to this. Some people use the lists to include
them (that is parts of them) into their
installation without using a redirector or other webfilters or use
them for their IPCop or IPFire installation.
Once a night the lists are packed and transferred on this server for
download. Please don't fetch the lists more than once a day - there
is simply no benefit in this. Excessive downloads will be blocked.
Shalla's Blacklists are free of charge for personal and partly for commercial
usage. Anyway, commercial usage requires signing a usage contract.
See our licence for
Please contact info (at) shalla.de for information about
gaining this contract.
Exception: If you plan to sell the lists or include
them into service or software package the use is not free of charge
and you must obtain a written contract
with Shalla Secure Services. The costs depend on the service/product.
Many people contributed to this lists. We are of the opinion that if
free blacklists are used commercially the community who contributed
to the lists for free should get something back: corrections and
addons. That's just fair, isn't it?! ;-)

other usage may give undesired results. We received a couple of
complaints regarding services that use the lists other than for the
intended purpose. In this case please contact the service provider
in question if you experience problems.
