MAINTAIN HEALTHY BOUNDARIES

Here are some common-sense rules that will help you steer clear of trouble: AQUA4BALANCE is all about holistic health, water wellness and it’s possible role in our lives. It is not for pornography or sexually explicit content. If this describes your textual content, images or video, even if it’s a video of yourself, don’t post it on AQUA4BALANCE. Don’t post textual content, images or videos showing bad stuff. We believe you know bad stuff when you see it, especially as it relates to the intention of this site. AQUA4BALANCE is all about holistic health, water wellness and all user submissions are to be within this global context. AQUA4BALANCE is not a shock site. It is an informational, educational and promotional based community site. Don’t post gross-out videos of procedures, accidents, dead bodies or similar things intended to shock or disgust. Respect copyright. Only upload textual content, images or videos that you made or that you are authorized to use. This means don’t upload user submissions 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. We encourage free speech and defend everyone’s right to express unpopular points of view. But we don’t permit hate speech (speech which attacks or demeans a group based on race or ethnic origin, religion, disability, gender, age, veteran status, and sexual orientation/gender identity or differing points of view regarding practices or modalities of holistic health and water wellness). Things like predatory behavior, stalking, threats, harassment, intimidation, invading privacy, revealing other people’s personal information, and inciting others to commit violent acts or to violate the Terms of Use are taken very seriously. Anyone caught doing these things may be permanently banned from AQUA4BALANCE. Everyone hates spam. Don’t create misleading descriptions, tags, titles or thumbnails. It’s not okay to post large amounts of untargeted, unwanted or repetitive content, including comments and private messages. Please take these rules seriously and take them to heart. Don’t try to look for loopholes or try to lawyer your way around the guidelines – just understand them and try to respect the spirit in which they were created.

Community Guidelines Tips

Want a little more insight into the limits and exceptions in the Community Guidelines?

Here are some helpful examples and tips:

Nudity is not allowed. There are exceptions for some educational, documentary and scientific content, but only if that is the sole purpose of the video and it is not gratuitously graphic. For example, a documentary on breast cancer would be appropriate, but posting clips out of context from the documentary might not be.
“Hate speech” refers to content that promotes hatred against members of a protected group. For instance, racist or sexist content may be considered hate speech. Sometimes there is a fine line between what is and what is not considered hate speech. For instance, it is generally okay to criticize a point of view, but not okay to make insulting generalizations about people who may advocate that point of view.
The world is a dangerous place. Sometimes people do get hurt and it’s inevitable that these events may be documented. However, it’s not okay to post violent or gory content that’s primarily intended to be shocking, sensational or disrespectful. If an image or video is particularly graphic or disturbing, it should be balanced with additional context and information. For instance, including a clip from a surgical procedure in a video on open heart surgery may be appropriate. However, stringing together unrelated and gruesome clips of other surgical procedures in a video may be considered gratuitous if its purpose is to shock rather than illustrate.
While it might not seem fair to say you can’t show something because of what viewers theoretically might do in response, we draw the line at content that’s intended to incite or encourage dangerous, illegal activities that have an inherent risk of serious physical harm or death.
User submissions involving children (anyone under the age of 18) are particularly sensitive. Textual content, images or Videos containing children should never be sexually suggestive or violent. Please be cautious when posting something involving a child. If you’re sharing a private moment or home movie, consider it carefully before doing so.
When you create something original, you own the copyright for it. Likewise, when other people create content, they may have a copyright to it. As a creative community, it’s essential that everyone on AQUA4BALANCE respect the copyrights of others. If you’re not sure if something will violate someone’s copyright, the safest thing to do is to create something completely original, with text, images and video you’ve created. If it’s all yours you never have to worry about copyright – you own it.

 

That’s it! Thanks for reading!
