Members are welcome to suggest policy changes.
Unwelcome or unacceptable content includes, but is not limited to:
Bulk uploading, self-promotion, and the posting of links and domain names primarily for SEO impact will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis. Posting links to phishing or malware sites is prohibited.
A proper DMCA notice must be filed for any moderating actions to take place. In the case that a complaint is filed, the content in question will be assessed and, if found to violate DMCA protections, removed. Users who are found to have uploaded violating content will be provided with information surrounding the complaint, and will have the opportunity to file a DMCA counter-notice of their own.
We trust our members' common sense, and don't ban graphic or adult content. If you think your channel might be sufficiently NSFW as to offend fellow members, consider setting it to private. However, only cases of involuntary pornography, or of sexual content involving minors, will be moderated by the Are.na staff for removal. To report violations, email firstname.lastname@example.org and specify the offending user/s or content.
Prohibited behavior includes:
Blocks, channels, comments, and accounts will be moderated for abuse or harassment at the discretion of the Are.na team. If you notice abuse or harassment, email email@example.com and specify the offending user/s or content.
Depending on the severity of the violation, and whether the user has committed prior violations, the Are.na team may reach out via email, remove the offending content, and/or suspend the account. If you believe your account has been unfairly suspended, or your content erroneously removed, contact firstname.lastname@example.org to appeal.
