NIGHTLIFE MEDIA - Community, Publishing, & Social Networking Rules

Nightlife Media gives registered users the power to create, publish, and share their news, information, and creative talent with people located all around the world. In order to protect the experience and safety of people who use Nightlife Media platforms & services, there are some limitations on the type of content and behavior that we allow. These limitations are set forth in the Nightlife Media Community, Publishing, & Social Networking Rules below.

The Nightlife Media Rules (along with all incorporated policies), Privacy Policy, and Terms of Service collectively make up the "Nightlife Media User Agreement" that governs a user's access to and use of Nightlife Media's services.

All individuals accessing or using Nightlife Media’s services must adhere to the policies set forth in the Nightlife Media Rules. Failure to do so may result in Nightlife Media 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 Nightlife Media users;

- temporarily limiting your ability to create posts or interact with other Nightlife Media 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 most current version is always available at: http://Nightlife.net/unl/rules.

The policies set forth in these Nightlife Media Rules govern organic content on our platform. To learn more about the rules which govern ads and promoted content, please review our Advertising Policies.

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.

Nightlife Media allows some forms of graphic violence and/or adult content in Posts marked as containing sensitive media. However, you may not use such content in your profile or header images. Additionally, Nightlife Media 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 Nightlife Media services, 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 Nightlife Media Rules, as well as content that may attempt to manipulate trends.

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 Nightlife Media badges

You may not use badges, including but not limited to the "sponsored", "featured", “promoted”, or “verified” Nightlife Media badges; unless provided by Nightlife Media. Accounts using unauthorized badges as part of their profile photos, header photos, display names, or in any way that falsely implies affiliation with Nightlife Media or authorization from Nightlife Media to display these badges, may be suspended.

Misuse of profile names & usernames

Selling profile or usernames: You may not buy or sell Nightlife Media profile or usernames.

Profile or Username squatting: You may not engage in profile or username squatting. Some of the factors we take into consideration when determining whether conduct is profile & 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 Nightlife Media may also remove accounts that are inactive for more than six months.

Abusive Behavior
We believe in freedom of expression and open dialogue. In order to ensure that people feel safe expressing diverse opinions and beliefs, we prohibit behavior that crosses the line into abuse, including behavior that harasses, intimidates, or uses fear to silence another user’s voice.

Context matters when evaluating for abusive behavior and determining appropriate enforcement actions. Factors we may take into consideration include, but are not limited to whether:

- the behavior is targeted at an individual or group of
people;

- the report has been filed by the target of the abuse or a
bystander;

- the behavior 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.

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 behavior 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 profile names, username, display name, or profile bio to engage in abusive behavior, 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.

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.

- Access, tamper with, or use non-public areas of Nightlife Media, Nightlife Media’s computer systems, or the technical delivery systems of Nightlife Media’s providers.

- 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 Postss (e.g., likes, Shares, etc.) or users (e.g., riending, following, adding to lists, 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, 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, Shares, likes, etc.); and

- if you use or promote third-party services or apps that claim to get you more relationships, followers, Friends, etc. or likes (such as friends or follower trains, sites promising "more friends, business contacts, followers, etc fast", or any other site that offers to automatically add followers, relationships, or engagements to your account or Posts).
