Content Policy

Beyourself is an Artificial Intelligence startup that allows people to upload their minds. The mind is what you are and it is responsible for your memories, emotions, understanding, reasoning, thoughts and imagination. We believe that censoring your mind is contrary to the freedom to be who you are and what you do.

However, in order to uphold these values, we need to curb abuses that threaten our ability to provide this service. As a result, there are some boundaries on the type of content that can be posted in Beyourself. The boundaries we’ve defined are those that both comply with legal requirements and that serve to enhance the service as a whole.

If you encounter a post, memories or user that you believe violates our policies, please report it to us using the ‘Report User’ icon located at the user profile or you can report abuse in the Behind the Mind/Smart Support.

Content Boundaries

Our content policies play an important role in maintaining a positive experience for you, the users. Please respect these guidelines. From time to time, we may change our content policies so please check back here. Also, please note that when applying the policies below, we may make exceptions based on artistic, educational, documentary, or scientific considerations or where there are other substantial benefits to the public from not taking action on the content.

Adult Content:

We do allow legal adult content on Beyourself, including texts, images or videos that contain nudity or sexual activity only in your Memories.

There are some exceptions to our adult content policy:

* Do not create profiles that contain ads for or links to commercial porn sites.

* We do not allow illegal sexual content, including image, video or textual content that depicts or encourages rape, incest, bestiality, or necrophilia.

* Do not post or distribute private nude or sexually explicit images or videos without the subject’s consent. If someone has posted a private nude or sexually explicit image or video of you, please report it to us info@beyourself.io

Child safety:

We have a zero-tolerance policy towards content that exploits children. Some examples of this include:

* Child sexual abuse imagery: We will terminate the accounts of any user we find publishing or distributing child sexual abuse imagery. We will also report that user to law enforcement.

* Pedophilia: We do not allow content that encourages or promotes sexual attraction towards children. For example, do not create posts with of images of children where the collection of images or text accompanying the images is sexually suggestive, and do not publish content of a sexual nature involving an underage participant.

Hate Speech:

Beyourself is an app for free expression. But we don’t support content that promotes or condones violence against individuals or groups based on race or ethnic origin, religion, disability, gender, age, nationality, veteran status, or sexual orientation/gender identity, or whose primary purpose is inciting hatred on the basis of these core characteristics. This can be a delicate balancing act, but if the primary purpose is to attack a protected group, the content crosses the line.

Crude Content:

Don’t post content just to be shocking or graphic. For example, collections of close-up images of gunshot wounds or accident scenes without additional context or commentary would violate this policy.

Violence:

Don’t threaten other people on your posts or comments. For example, don’t post death threats against another person or group of people and don’t post content encouraging your readers to take violent action against another person or group of people.

Harassment:

Do not harass or bully others. Anyone using Beyourself to harass or bully may have the offending content removed or be permanently banned from the app. Online harassment is also illegal in many places and can have serious offline consequences.

Copyright:

It is our policy to respond to clear notices of alleged copyright infringement. More information about our copyright procedures can be found on our Terms of Service and Privacy Policy. Also, please don’t provide links to sites where your readers can obtain unauthorized downloads of other people’s content.

Personal and confidential information:

It’s not ok to publish another person’s personal and confidential information. For example, don’t post someone else’s credit card numbers, Social Security numbers, unlisted phone numbers, and driver’s license numbers. In addition, do not post or distribute images or videos of minors without the necessary consent from their legal representatives. If someone has posted an image or video of a minor without necessary consent, please report it to us. Also, please keep in mind that in most cases, information that is already available elsewhere on the Internet or in public records is not considered to be private or confidential under our policies.

Impersonating others:

Please don’t mislead or confuse users by pretending to be someone else or pretending to represent an organization when you don’t. We’re not saying you can’t publish parody or satire – just avoid content that is likely to mislead users about your true identity.

Illegal activities:

Do not use Beyourself to engage in illegal activities or to promote dangerous and illegal activities. For example, don’t encouraging people to drink and drive. Please also do not use Beyourself to sell or promote illegal drugs. Otherwise, we may delete your content. In addition, in serious cases such as those involving the abuse of children, we may report you to the appropriate authorities.

Regulated Goods and Services:

Do not use Beyourself to sell or facilitate the sale of regulated goods and services, such as alcohol, gambling, pharmaceuticals and unapproved supplements, tobacco, fireworks, weapons, or health/medical devices.

Spam:

Spam can takes several forms in Beyourself, all of which can result in deletion of your account. Some examples include creating profiles designed to posting comments on other people’s posts just to promote your site or product.
