Our User Conduct & Content Policy

BiZDEV STUDiO's sharing, social, comments and forum services enable people from diverse backgrounds to start conversations, share experiences, collaborate on projects, and form new communities. Our policies play an important role in maintaining a positive experience for our users on our website. Please follow these policies as you use post comments or use the community forum.

After we are notified or become aware of a potential policy violation, we may review the content and take action, including restricting access to the content, removing the content, and limiting or terminating a user’s access to BiZDEV STUDiO's products. Note that we may make exceptions to these policies based on artistic, educational, or documentary considerations, or when there are other substantial benefits to the public from not taking action.

We occasionally modify these policies, so please check back here for any updates.

  1. Illegal Activities

    Do not use our Services to engage in illegal activities or to promote activities that are dangerous and illegal, such as terrorism, the sale of illegal drugs, or human trafficking.

    We may also remove content that violates applicable local laws. To report content that you believe should be removed based on local laws, click here.

  2. Malicious and Deceptive Practices

    Do not transmit viruses, malware, or any other malicious or destructive code. Do not distribute content that harms or interferes with the operation of the networks, servers, or other infrastructure of BiZDEV STUDiO or others. Do not use our Services for phishing scams.

  3. Hate Speech

    Our products are platforms 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.

  4. Harassment, Bullying, and Threats

    Do not engage in harassing, bullying, or threatening behavior, and do not incite others to engage in these activities. Anyone using our Services to single someone out for malicious abuse, to threaten someone with serious harm, to sexualize a person in an unwanted way, or to harass in other ways may have the offending content removed or be permanently banned from using the Services. In emergency situations, we may escalate imminent threats of serious harm to law enforcement. Keep in mind that online harassment is also illegal in many places and can have serious offline consequences for both the harasser and the victim.

  5. Personal and Confidential Information

    Do not distribute other people’s personal and confidential information, such as credit card numbers, confidential national ID numbers, or account passwords, without their permission. Do not post or distribute images or videos of minors without the necessary consent from their legal representatives. Report a violation

  6. Child Exploitation

    Do not upload or share content that exploits or abuses children. This includes all child sexual abuse imagery (even cartoon images) and all content that presents children in a sexual manner. We will remove such content and take appropriate action, which may include disabling accounts and reporting to the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC) and law enforcement. Note that this policy may additionally apply to any content uploaded or transmitted through our Services.

    If you find any content that you think exploits children in this manner, do not reshare or comment on such content, even if your intent is to bring it to BiZDEV STUDiO's attention. Instead, flag the content through the ‘Report Abuse’ link. If you find content elsewhere on the internet, please contact NCMEC directly.

  7. Spam

    Do not spam, including by sending unwanted promotional or commercial content, or unwanted or mass solicitation.

    Do not aggressively send invitations, add people to your circles, or message people that you do not know.

  8. Ranking Manipulation

    Do not manipulate ranking or relevancy using techniques like repetitive or misleading keywords or metadata.

  9. Sexually Explicit Material

    Do not distribute sexually explicit or pornographic material. Do not drive traffic to commercial pornography sites.

    Note that your BiZDEV STUDiO profile photo cannot include mature or offensive content. For example, do not use a photo that is a close-up of a person’s buttocks or cleavage.

  10. Violence

    Do not distribute depictions of graphic or gratuitous violence.

  11. Regulated Goods and Services

    Our forums enable discussion of many topics, but we do not allow content that facilitates the sale of regulated products and services, including alcohol, gambling, pharmaceuticals and unapproved supplements, tobacco, fireworks, weapons, or health/medical devices.

  12. Impersonation

    Do not use our Services to mislead or confuse users by pretending to be someone else or pretending to represent an organization you do not represent.

  13. Account Hijacking

    Do not access another user’s account without their permission.

  14. Use of Multiple Accounts

    Do not create or use multiple accounts to evade our policies or bypass blocks or otherwise subvert restrictions placed on your account. For example, if you’ve been blocked by another user or suspended for abuse, don’t create a replacement account that engages in similar activity.
