DERBYSOCIAL.COM COMMUNITY STANDARDS


What does and does not fly in these parts, and how to report abuse:


Violence and Threats


Safety is a strong focus of DerbySocial.com at all times. We remove content and may escalate to law enforcement when we perceive a genuine risk of physical harm, or a direct threat to public safety. You may not credibly threaten others, or organize acts of real-world violence. We also prohibit promoting, planning or celebrating any of your actions if they have, or could, result in financial harm to others, including theft and vandalism.


Security


We take the safety of our members seriously and work to prevent attempts to compromise their privacy or security, including those that use fraud or deception. Additionally, we ask that you respect our members by not contacting them for commercial purposes without their consent.


Bullying and Harassment


DerbySocial.com does not tolerate bullying or harassment. We allow users to speak freely on matters and people of public interest, but take action on all reports of abusive behavior directed at private individuals. Repeatedly targeting other users with unwanted friend requests or messages is a form of harassment and will not be tolerated.


Identity and Privacy


On DerbySocial.com people connect using their real names and identities. We ask that you refrain from publishing the personal information of others without their consent. Claiming to be another person, creating a false presence for an organization, or creating multiple accounts undermines community and violates DerbySocial.com's terms.



Hate Speech



DerbySocial.com does not permit hate speech, but distinguishes between serious and humorous speech. While we encourage you to challenge ideas, institutions, events, and practices, we do not permit individuals or groups to attack others based on their race, ethnicity, national origin, religion, sex, gender, sexual orientation, disability or medical condition.



 Graphic Content


DerbySocial.com is  a place where people turn to share their experiences of the sport and raise awareness about issues important to them. Sometimes, those experiences and issues involve graphic content that is of public interest or concern, such as human rights abuses or acts of terrorism. However, graphic images shared for sadistic effect or to celebrate or glorify violence have no place on our site.


When people share any content, we expect that they will share in a responsible manner. That includes choosing carefully the audience for the content. For graphic videos, people should warn their audience about the nature of the content in the video so that their audience can make an informed choice about whether to watch it. 



Nudity and Pornography


DerbySocial.com has a strict policy against the sharing of pornographic content and any explicitly sexual content where a minor is involved. We also impose limitations on the display of nudity. We aspire to respect people’s right to share content of personal importance, whether those are photos of a sculpture like Michelangelo's David or family photos of a child breastfeeding. 



 Intellectual Property


Before sharing content on DerbySocial.com, please be sure you have the right to do so. We ask that you respect copyrights, trademarks, and other legal rights.



 Phishing and Spam
We take the safety of our members seriously and work to prevent attempts to compromise their privacy or security. We also ask that you respect our members by not contacting them for commercial purposes without their consent. 



 Self-Harm



DerbySocial.com takes threats of self-harm very seriously. We remove any promotion or encouragement of self-mutilation, eating disorders or drug abuse.


REPORTING ANY AND ALL ABUSE OF OUR COMMUNITY:


Emails to info@derbysocial.com regarding any abuse of these terms of use or anything users may find offensive will be addressed promptly. DerbySocial.com moderators and administrators will investigate all claims and will temporarily or permanently ban users as needed in the event that abuse is occurring.
