At VideoAsk, we believe in creating a powerful tool to build strong relationships and bring a little more humanness to your online interactions. We also believe that this tool should be used ethically and respectfully. If you believe a videoask is not being used in this way, you can report it for abuse.
Types of abuse
We sort the various kinds of abuse into 5 main types. These are:
We don't allow the sharing or publishing of content depicting nudity, graphic sex acts, or other sexually explicit material. We don't allow content that drives traffic to pornography. We have a zero-tolerance policy towards content that exploits children. This means we will terminate the accounts of any user that we find sharing or publishing child abuse content. We will also report the content and its owner to law enforcement. We do not allow the sharing or publishing of content that encourages or promotes sexual attraction towards children.
2. Promoting hatred, violence, or illegal/offensive activities.
Users may not share or publish content that promotes hatred or violence towards other groups based on race, ethnicity, religion, disability, gender, age, sexual orientation, or gender identity. Please note that individuals are not considered a protected group. Users may not share or publish crude content or violent content that is shockingly graphic. We will also remove content that threatens, harasses, or bullies other people or promotes dangerous and illegal activities.
3. Spam, malware, or 'phishing'.
We do not allow spamming or content that transmits viruses, causes pop-ups, attempts to install software without the user's consent, or otherwise impacts users with malicious code or scripts. We do not allow phishing activity.
4. Private and confidential information.
We do not allow users to create questions that ask for a respondent’s confidential information. Examples include: passwords, credit card details, bank account numbers, or similar types of private information. Please note that we may remove videoasks, delete data, and/or block accounts that do not comply.
Please note that this does not apply to VideoAsk's Payment answer type which is secured by Stripe. In this case, Stripe asks for the data and processes the payment immediately. No card details or CVV numbers are stored.
