4. USING THE SERVICES
 
Please review the Openstage Rules:
 
The Openstage Rules
 
We believe that everyone should have the power to create and share ideas, participate in other people’s ideas, and be proportionately be rewarded for the help we each bring the realisation of those ideas, without barriers. In order to protect the experience and safety of people who use Openstage, there are some limitations on the type of content and behavior that we allow. These limitations are set forth in the Openstage Rules below.
The Openstage Rules (along with all incorporated policies), Privacy Policy, and Terms of Service collectively make up the "Openstage User Agreement" that governs a user's access to and use of Openstage's services.
All individuals accessing or using Openstage’s services must adhere to the policies set forth in the Openstage Rules. Failure to do so may result in Openstage taking one or more of the following enforcement actions:
  • requiring you to delete prohibited content before you can again create new posts and interact with other Openstage users;
  • temporarily limiting your ability to create posts or interact with other Openstage users;
  • asking you to verify account ownership with a phone number or email address; or
  • permanently suspending your account(s).
If you attempt to evade a permanent suspension by creating new accounts, we will suspend your new accounts.
Please note that we may need to change these Rules from time to time and reserve the right to do so. 
The policies set forth in these Openstage Rules govern organic content on our platform.
 
Content Boundaries and Use of Openstage
 
Intellectual property
 
Trademark: We reserve the right to suspend accounts or take other appropriate action when someone’s brand or trademark, including business name and/or logo, is used in a manner that may mislead or confuse others about your brand affiliation. 
Copyright: We will respond to clear and complete notices of alleged copyright infringement. Our copyright procedures are set forth in our Terms of Service.
 
Graphic violence and adult content
 
We consider graphic violence to be any form of gory media related to death, serious injury, violence, or surgical procedures. We consider adult content to be any media that is pornographic and/or may be intended to cause sexual arousal.
Openstage allows some forms of graphic violence and/or adult content in messages/posts marked as containing sensitive media. However, you may not use such content in your profile or header images. Additionally, Openstage may sometimes require you to remove excessively graphic violence out of respect for the deceased and their families if we receive a request from their family or an authorized representative. 
 
Unlawful use
 
You may not use our service for any unlawful purposes or in furtherance of illegal activities. By using Openstage, you agree to comply with all applicable laws governing your online conduct and content.
 
Trends
 
At times, we may prevent certain content from trending. This includes content that violates the Openstage Rules, as well as content that may attempt to manipulate trends. Read more about what we allow and do not allow to trend.
 
Third-party advertising in video content
 
You may not submit, post, or display any video content on or through our services that includes third-party advertising, such as pre-roll video ads or sponsorship graphics, without our prior consent.
 
Misuse of Openstage badges
 
You may not use badges, including but not limited to the “promoted” or “verified” Openstage badges, unless provided by Openstage. Accounts using unauthorized badges as part of their profile photos, header photos, display names, or in any way that falsely implies affiliation with Openstage or authorization from Openstage to display these badges, may be suspended.
 
Misuse of usernames
 
Selling usernames: You may not buy or sell Openstage usernames.
Username squatting: You may not engage in username squatting. Some of the factors we take into consideration when determining whether conduct is username squatting include:
  • the number of accounts created;
  • the creation of accounts for the purpose of preventing others from using those account names;
  • the creation of accounts for the purpose of selling those accounts; and
  • the use of third-party content feeds to update and maintain accounts under the names of those third parties.
Please note that Openstage may also remove accounts that are inactive for more than six months. 
 
Abusive Behaviour
 
We believe in freedom of expression and open dialogue, but that means little as an underlying philosophy if voices are silenced because people are afraid to speak up. In order to ensure that people feel safe expressing diverse opinions and beliefs, we prohibit behaviour that crosses the line into abuse, including behaviour that harasses, intimidates, or uses fear to silence another user’s voice.
Context matters when evaluating for abusive behaviour and determining appropriate enforcement actions. Factors we may take into consideration include, but are not limited to whether:
  • the behaviour is targeted at an individual or group of people;
  • the report has been filed by the target of the abuse or a bystander;
  • the behaviour is newsworthy and in the legitimate public interest.
Violence and physical harm
 
Violence: You may not make specific threats of violence or wish for the serious physical harm, death, or disease of an individual or group of people. This includes, but is not limited to, threatening or promoting terrorism. You also may not affiliate with organizations that — whether by their own statements or activity both on and off the platform — use or promote violence against civilians to further their causes.
Suicide or self-harm: You may not promote or encourage suicide or self-harm. When we receive reports that a person is threatening suicide or self-harm, we may take a number of steps to assist them, such as reaching out to that person and providing resources such as contact information for our mental health partners.
Child sexual exploitation: You may not promote child sexual exploitation.
 
Abuse and hateful conduct
 
Abuse: You may not engage in the targeted harassment of someone, or incite other people to do so. We consider abusive behaviour an attempt to harass, intimidate, or silence someone else’s voice.
Unwanted sexual advances: You may not direct abuse at someone by sending unwanted sexual content, objectifying them in a sexually explicit manner, or otherwise engaging in sexual misconduct.
Hateful conduct: You may not promote violence against, threaten, or harass other people on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, religious affiliation, age, disability, or serious disease. 
Hateful imagery and display names: You may not use hateful images or symbols in your profile image or profile header. You also may not use your username, display name, or profile bio to engage in abusive behaviour, such as targeted harassment or expressing hate towards a person, group, or protected category. 
 
Private information and intimate media
 
Private information: You may not publish or post other people's private information without their express authorization and permission. Definitions of private information may vary depending on local laws. Read more about our private information policy.
Intimate media: You may not post or share intimate photos or videos of someone that were produced or distributed without their consent. Read more about intimate media on Openstage.
Threats to expose / hack: You may not threaten to expose someone’s private information or intimate media. You also may not threaten to hack or break into someone’s digital information.
 
Impersonation
 
You may not impersonate individuals, groups, or organizations in a manner that is intended to or does mislead, confuse, or deceive others. While you may maintain parody, fan, commentary, or newsfeed accounts, you may not do so if the intent of the account is to engage in spamming or abusive behavior. Read more about our impersonation policy.
 
Spam and Security
 
We strive to protect people on Openstage from technical abuse and spam.
To promote a stable and secure environment on Openstage, you may not do, or attempt to do, any of the following while accessing or using Openstage:
  • Access, tamper with, or use non-public areas of Openstage, Openstage’s computer systems, or the technical delivery systems of Openstage’s providers.
  • Probe, scan, or test the vulnerability of any system or network, or breach or circumvent any security or authentication measures.
  • Access or search, or attempt to access or search, Openstage by any means (automated or otherwise) other than through our currently available, published interfaces that are provided by Openstage (and only pursuant to the applicable terms and conditions), unless you have been specifically allowed to do so in a separate agreement with Openstage. Note that crawling Openstage is permissible if done in accordance with the provisions of the robots.txt file; however, scraping Openstage without our prior consent is expressly prohibited.
  • Forge any TCP/IP packet header or any part of the header information in any email or posting, or in any way use Openstage to send altered, deceptive, or false source-identifying information.
  • Interfere with or disrupt the access of any user, host or network, including, without limitation, sending a virus, overloading, flooding, spamming, mail-bombing Openstage’s services, or by scripting the creation of content in such a manner as to interfere with or create an undue burden on Openstage.
  • Any accounts engaging in the following activities may be temporarily locked or subject to permanent suspension:
  • Malware/Phishing: You may not publish or link to malicious content intended to damage or disrupt another person’s browser or computer or to compromise a person’s privacy. 
  • Spam: You may not use Openstage’s services for the purpose of spamming anyone. Spam is generally defined on Openstage as bulk or aggressive activity that attempts to manipulate or disrupt Openstage or the experience of users on Openstage to drive traffic or attention to unrelated accounts, products, services, or initiatives. Some of the factors that we take into account when determining what conduct is considered to be spamming include:
    • if you have followed and/or unfollowed a large number of accounts in a short time period, particularly by automated means (aggressive following or follower churn);
    • if your messages/posts or Direct Messages consist mainly of links shared without commentary;
    • if a large number of people have blocked you in response to high volumes of untargeted, unsolicited, or duplicative content or engagements from your account;
    • if a large number of spam complaints have been filed against you;
    • if you post duplicative or substantially similar content, replies, or mentions over multiple accounts or multiple duplicate updates on one account, or create duplicate or substantially similar accounts;
    • if you post multiple updates to a trending or popular topic with an intent to subvert or manipulate the topic to drive traffic or attention to unrelated accounts, products, services, or initiatives;
    • if you send large numbers of unsolicited replies or mentions;
    • if you add users to lists in a bulk or aggressive manner;
    • if you are randomly or aggressively engaging with messages/posts  (e.g., likes, duplicating messgaes/posts, etc.) or users (e.g., following, adding to lists or Moments, etc.) to drive traffic or attention to unrelated accounts, products, services, or initiatives;
    • if you repeatedly post other people’s account information as your own (e.g., bio, messages/posts, profile URL, etc.);
    • if you post misleading, deceptive, or malicious links (e.g., affiliate links, links to malware/clickjacking pages, etc.);
    • if you create fake accounts, account interactions, or impressions;
    • if you sell, purchase, or attempt to artificially inflate account interactions (such as followers, duplicating messages/posts, likes, etc.); and
    • if you use or promote third-party services or apps that claim to get you more followers, duplicating messages/posts, or likes (such as follower trains, sites promising "more followers fast", or any other site that offers to automatically add followers or engagements to your account or messages/posts).
Content Visibility
 
Accounts under investigation or which have been detected as sharing content in violation of these Rules may have their account or messages/posts visibility limited in various parts of Openstage, including search. To learn more about situations in which content may be restricted on Openstage, please see our support article on search rules and restrictions.
