Guidelines on Combating Breaches

Guidelines on Combating Breaches

Anti-violation recommendations can help you successfully deal with conflicts you may face at Nutson. We hope you will find a suitable solution.

What you can do:

If you see inappropriate Content at Nutson, please determine its context. Many people use our Platform in a Nutson-specific way. If something goes beyond the context, this can result in misunderstandings. Please check hashtags related to the Content. Perhaps, the post is a part of a trend or may relate to something that is not obvious. To understand the situation, please check all information related to the post or the entire profile of the person who posted it.

Think before commenting. If you are involved in a dispute in the Comments, please consider what your next post might result in. While it is always tricky, stalking can make the unwanted behavior worse and encourage the other person to continue to behave aggressively.

Block! If you receive unwanted Comments from another user, it is recommended that you block that person. People who insult others often lose interest when they understand that you will not answer them or that they will no longer be able to communicate with you.

If the dispute or insults continue. The best answer in a dispute is a calm discussion or a refusal to argue. However, some situations require additional actions. The following tips in this section are recommendations for getting help.

Contact those you trust. When it comes to negative or harmful interactions, contacting the loved ones for advice can help. Communicating a trouble to a family member or a close friend can often help you figure out how to cope with a situation or to express your emotions so you can move on.

Complain. Be sure to read the Platform Rules. If you have read and believe that some account violates one or more of the rules, please report the violation to us using the application function of sending complaints. This is the fastest way to report insulting posts or profiles. Please provide all necessary information in your complaint—this will help to consider your trouble as soon as possible.

Nutson deletes only those accounts and posts that violate the Agreement and other terms and conditions or rules posted on the Platform. If we delete something that is contrary to the Guidelines of the Community, we inform the author of the post, but do not provide information on the User who complained about the post.

In case of danger. Contact your local law enforcement authorities or legal representation. When a conflict can become a genuine threat online or in real life, you should contact your local law enforcement authorities. They can better assess the threat than others and intervene or help you if required. If we are contacted by law enforcement authorities, we can cooperate with them and provide the information required to investigate the trouble.

Legal advice. If you believe your online dispute is legal, please consult a lawyer. Nutson may not provide legal advice or information on other Users, except as required by the current legislation.

Guidelines of the Community

Please only post the Content you create or the Content that you are authorized to share. Please remember that only authentic materials may be posted. Do not post any Content you have copied or found online unless you are authorized to do so.

Post photos and videos that are suitable for a diverse audience.

We know that sometimes people want to share nude images for creative or artistic reasons, but there is a number of reasons why such images are prohibited at Nutson. Photos, videos and some digital materials showing sexual intercourse, genitals and fully naked buttocks close-up are prohibited. They include photos of female breast nipples as well, but photos with mastectomy scars and photos of breastfeeding women are allowed. Painting and sculpture nudity is also allowed.

People love to post photos and videos of their children. Sometimes, we may delete photos that show partially or fully nude children for security reasons. Even if these materials are posted with good intent, one may not foresee a purpose for which other people may use them.

Please interact in a conscious and authentic manner.

Help us combat spam. Please do not use mechanisms for fake Likes, increasing the number of followers and reposts. Do not post repeating Comments or materials, do not make commercial proposals several times to people who have not agreed to this. Do not post any Content that promotes, encourages, or makes it easy to buy or sell fake feedbacks of people. You are not required to provide your true name at Nutson, but we do require the Users of this platform to provide us with accurate and up-to-date information. Do not misrepresent yourself as other people and do not create accounts to violate our Guidelines or mislead someone.

Obey the law.

At Nutson, it is prohibited to support and to praise terrorist activities, organized crime and haters groups. At Nutson, it is prohibited to offer sexual services, to buy or sell firearms, alcohol and tobacco products on an individual basis, or to buy or sell narcotic drugs or prescription drugs (even if they are permitted in your area). Poaching and selling endangered animals and parts of their bodies are strictly prohibited.

When offering to buy or sell other goods subject to statutory regulation, always keep in mind that you must obey the law. Accounts promoting online gambling or online lotteries must obtain our prior written permission before using our products.

We believe that threats to post intimate photographs of other people and materials of a sexual nature involving minors are out-of-tolerance. The above list is not exhaustive, therefore, when using Nutson, you are prohibited from taking any actions that violate the law. However, the Nutson liability is limited to the concept of an information intermediary in the context of Article 1253.1 of the Civil Code of the Russian Federation.

Respect other members of the Nutson community.

We strive to build a diverse community with a friendly attitude towards each other. We delete any materials that contain genuine threats or hostile speech that are intended for humiliating or insulting certain people, and that contain personal information that is intended for blackmailing or harassing or repeated unsolicited messages. As a rule, we allow critical discussion of people who appear in the news or have a large audience of fans because of their profession or occupation.

It is inadmissible to call for violence or harassing people based on their race, ethnic or national origin, sex, gender identity, religion, sexual orientation, disease or disability. We may permit the posting of hostile speech if this is done in order to raise awareness or to combat it. In such cases, we ask you to clearly express your intentions.

Serious threats to jeopardize public and personal safety are prohibited. This includes, but is not limited to, specific threats of physical harm, robbery, vandalism or other financial damage. We consider complaints carefully and weigh many factors to determine whether the threat is genuine.

Be friendly in the community and do not propagate self-harm.
