We provide a neutral platform for groups of all types and sizes to communicate with each other. As a platform, our purpose is to provide the software/infrastructure for groups to post content and share information with each other. We will not editorialize, censor, or take political positions. However, we do expect all groups and the participants in those groups to abide by a minimum set of standards. The following activities and/or types of content are expressly prohibited.
You may not use the Crowdstack service to do anything that violates Federal laws in the United States of America or laws in other applicable jurisdictions where data may be hosted. This also includes copyright, trademark, patent, and trade secret violations.
You may not post content that is sexually explicit or pornographic or exploits/presents minors in a sexual way.
You may not collect, disseminate, or disclose any personally identifiable user information without the consent of the impacted parties. This includes protected health information (PHI) and credit card information. Usage of Crowdstack's premium memberships does not violate this policy, because payment is managed by Crowdstack Pay and no credit card information is stored on our systems.
Serious, direct, and obvious threats to harm another person or encourage self-harm are not permitted. Examples include threatening to injure or kill someone, imploring others to do harm against one or more people, including damage to property owned by someone. Name-calling is a not a threat. Being rude is not a threat. Hurt feelings are not considered damage.
You may not offer or promote fraudulent goods, services, or schemes or engage in any practice that constitutes an unfair or deceptive trade practice. Such violations must be obvious, direct, and be based on an apparent plan to profit off of people in a fraudulent manner.
You may not attempt to compromise or reduce overall integrity of our systems or software, via any method, including viruses, Trojan horses, bots, and worms. In addition, any attempt to access information stored on our servers is strictly prohibited via hacking, phishing, or any other devious practice.
Without limiting the foregoing, it is our policy to terminate Service for repeated violations of the UUP.
