Nudity or sexual content
CTIZNEWS is not for pornography or sexually explicit content. If this describes your video, even if it’s a video of yourself, don’t post it on CTIZNEWS. Also, be advised that we work closely with law enforcement and we report child exploitation.
Harmful or dangerous content
Don’t post videos that encourage others to do things that might cause them to get badly hurt, especially kids. Videos showing such harmful or dangerous acts may get age-restricted or removed depending on their severity.
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.
Violent or graphic content
It’s not okay to post violent or gory content that’s primarily intended to be shocking, sensational, or gratuitous. If posting graphic content in a news or documentary context, please be mindful to provide enough information to help people understand what’s going on in the video. Don’t encourage others to commit specific acts of violence.
Harassment and cyberbullying
It’s not ok to post abusive videos and comments on CTIZNEWS. If harassment crosses the line into a malicious attack it can be reported and may be removed. In other cases, users may be mildly annoying or petty and should be ignored.
Spam, misleading metadata, and scams
Everyone hates spam. Don’t create misleading descriptions, tags, titles, or thumbnails in order to increase views. It’s not okay to post large amounts of untargeted, unwanted or repetitive content, including comments and messages
Respect copyright. Only upload videos that you made or that you’re authorized to use. This means don’t upload videos you didn’t make, or use content in your videos that someone else owns the copyright to, such as music tracks, snippets of copyrighted programs, or videos made by other users, without necessary authorizations.
If someone has posted your personal information or uploaded a video of you without your consent, you can request removal of content based on our Privacy Guidelines
Accounts that are established to impersonate another channel or individual may be removed under our impersonation policy.
Learn what to do if you encounter inappropriate content. Also, be advised that we work closely with law enforcement and we report child exploitation
Some language is not appropriate for younger audiences. Use of sexually explicit language or excessive profanity in your video or associated metadata may lead to removal of your video.
Inactive accounts policy
In general, users are expected to be active members within the CTIZNEWS community. If an account is found to be overly inactive, the account may be reclaimed by CTIZNEWS without notice. Inactivity may be considered as:
- Not logging into the site for at least six months
- Never having uploaded video content
- Not actively partaking in watching or commenting on videos or channels
Encouraging Terms of Service violations
