Community Rules

Last revised: June 1, 2015

The Reveal Rules

Our goal is to provide a service that allows you to discover and receive content from sources that interest you as well as to share your content with others. We respect the ownership of the content that users share and each user is responsible for the content he or she provides. Because of these principles, we do not actively monitor user content and will not censor user content, except in limited circumstances described below.

Content Boundaries and Use of Reveal

In order to provide the Reveal service and the ability to communicate and stay connected with others, there are some limitations on the type of content that can be posted and published (including, but not limited to, sending, sharing, asking, answering, broadcasting and messaging) with Reveal. These limitations comply with legal requirements and make Reveal a better experience for all. We may need to change these rules from time to time and reserve the right to do so. Please check back here to see the latest.

  • Impersonation: You may not impersonate others through the Reveal service in a manner that does or is intended to mislead, confuse, or deceive others.
  • Trademark: We reserve the right to restrict the use of certain user names and profile URLs on behalf of businesses or individuals that hold legal claim or trademark on those user names or profile URLs. Accounts using business names and/or logos to mislead others will be permanently suspended.
  • Privacy: You may not publish or post other people's private and confidential information, such as credit card numbers, street address or Social Security/National Identity numbers, without their express authorization and permission.
  • Violence: You may not publish or post direct, specific threats of violence against others. Nor may you post Content that may create a risk of harm, loss, physical or mental injury, emotional distress, death, disability, disfigurement, or physical or mental illness to you, to any other person, or to any animal.
  • Copyright: We will respond to clear and complete notices of alleged copyright infringement. Our copyright procedures are set forth in the Terms of Service.
  • Unlawful Use: You may not use our service for any unlawful purposes or in furtherance of illegal activities, including but not limited to intellectual property infringement. International users agree to comply with all local laws regarding online conduct and acceptable content.
  • Pornography and Sexually Explicit Content: You may not post content that is pornographic or sexually explicit—even if it is of yourself or marked as sensitive.
  • Other Objectionable Content: You will not post any Content that contains any information or content that we deem to be unlawful, harmful, abusive, racially or ethnically offensive, defamatory, infringing, invasive of personal privacy or publicity rights, harassing, humiliating to other people (publicly or otherwise), libelous, threatening, profane, obscene, or otherwise objectionable.
  • Profile Images: You may not use obscene or pornographic images in your profile photo.
  • Misuse of Reveal Badges: You may not use a Verified Account badge unless it is provided by Reveal.
  • Accounts using these badges as part of profile photos or in a way that falsely implies affiliation with Reveal will be suspended.

Spam and Abuse

Reveal strives to protect its users from spam and abuse, and to distribute Reveal Coin in a fair manner that reflects the true activities of users. Technical abuse and user abuse are not tolerated on Reveal and may result in permanent suspension.

  • Serial Accounts: You may not create serial accounts for disruptive or abusive purposes, or with overlapping use cases. Mass account creation may result in suspension of all related accounts.
  • Username Squatting: You may not engage in username squatting. Accounts that are inactive for more than six months may also have their usernames removed or reclaimed without further notice. Some of the factors that we take into account when determining what conduct is considered to be username squatting are:
  • the number of usernames created;
  • creating pusernames for the purpose of preventing others from using those usernames;
  • creating usernames for the purpose of selling those profile URLs;
  • Invitation spam: You may not use any of the “Find Friends” (address book contact importer, Twitter, Facebook or Instagram contact importer, invite via email, and invite via text) or “Share” features to send repeat, mass invitations.
  • Selling accounts: You may not purchase or sell Reveal accounts.
  • Malware/Phishing: You may not publish or link to malicious content intended to damage or disrupt another user’s browser or computer, or to compromise a user’s privacy or login information.
