Guidelines

Buzzkiki Community Guidelines

We created Buzzkiki to be a positive, exciting and safe platform for a diverse range of creators and their followers.

Guidelines enforcement
Buzzkiki is a diverse community and although you may not agree with someone’s point of view, they may not be violating our Community Guidelines but if you see a page on Buzzkiki that you believe violates our community guidelines, please report them via our reporting tool. Our support team will review the report and if our Community Guidelines have been violated we will contact the creator to deal with the violation.

We always try to make decisions as fair and transparent as possible, We want creators to feel they have an open line of communication to settle any moderation matters which arise. In cases where the violation is very serious or intentional we may take further action such as suspending or removing their account. In the most extreme cases we may ban a creator from using Buzzkiki.

When reviewing a reported page, we look at where the page is linking to, where the traffic comes from and how creations are shared. We generally like to give creators the opportunity to appeal a decision and to present to us any relevant information they believe was not considered.

Bullying, harassment, and threats
We don’t allow bullying or harassment. Although we want people to be able to express themselves, be critical and discuss controversial issues,discussing celebrities, media or other public figures can sometimes involve harsh criticism, which we believe is an acceptable part of free speech, but we draw the line when it comes to harassing private figures, or taking any action that might affect someone's physical safety, regardless  whether they are a private or public figure.

As much as we want you to be able to express yourself, we want all of our users to have the right to express their opinion without feeling intimidated. Even the most difficult conversations should take place in sensible and respectful ways.

Hate speech
Buzzkiki is a global platform connecting creators to their fans all over the world, promoting creativity and inclusivity. We do not tolerate projects funding hate speech, such as calling for exclusion, segregation or even violence.  This includes inciting attacks on people based on their race, ethnicity, national origin, religion, sex, gender, sexual orientation, age, disability or serious medical conditions.

Be authentic
Do not create fake pages or collect money for things you’re not actually doing. i.e: you should not create a fan page for someone else.
Do not pretend to be or impersonate someone else by using their name, brand or the creations of another to deceive  or defraud fans.

18+ creations
We strive to create a community that is diverse and inclusive, and taking into consideration our diverse user base of different ages and sensitivities we ask creators to flag themselves as 18+ if their creations may be considered inappropriate for people under 18 years of age. This may include nudity or discussion around sexuality.

It is important that all public posts on your page be appropriate for all audiences/ages. Posts with mature themes must be marked as “Subscribers Only",  to allow people the choice to view only what they feel comfortable with.

Nudity
You can post nude creations on Buzzkiki of both real and fictional subjects. Posts with mature themes should be locked and marked as “Subscribers Only”. This means that you cannot post nudity in public areas including your profile picture or ‘about’ section, and you should never post or share nude creations of any individual under the age of 18, including yourself. As a strong commitment to child safety, we will work with law enforcement whenever we come across child exploitation material. We understand that you may make a mix 18+ creations and other types of creations, which is fine, we will always review your work within its context.

Pornography and sexual services
We DO NOT allow pornographic material or sexual services on Buzzkiki, which is defined as "real people engaging in sexual acts such as masturbation or sexual intercourse on camera."  

Offensive and graphic creations
We have zero tolerance to the glorification of sexual violence which includes rape, bestiality and child exploitation (i.e., sexualised depiction of minors). This is true for illustrated, animated, or any other type of creations. Buzzkiki reserves the right to review and remove accounts that may violate this guideline. We also do not allow other fringe sexual fetish creations, such as incest, necrophilia, or fetish creations that is hard to distinguish from non-consensual sex.

People who cannot use Buzzkiki
Because Buzzkiki empowers people financially, we restrict both the types of media and projects that can be funded on Buzzkiki, and also which people can and cannot receive funds through Buzzkiki. After creating a Buzzkiki page, any creator caught in the act or convicted of making credible violent threats, committing violent crimes, coordinating nonviolent harm (such as fraud, money laundering and gambling), or encouraging others to do any of these activities may be banned from using Buzzkiki.

Politicians cannot use Buzzkiki to fund their run for office or to fund the political campaigns of others.

Dangerous Organizations
People with a dangerous criminal history or a known affiliation with violent or dangerous groups (including terrorist or cyber terrorist organizations, organized criminal groups, and violent hate groups), cannot receive funds through Buzzkiki, no matter the purpose or apparent intention of their Buzzkiki page.

Harmful and illegal activities
We don’t allow funds to be collected for anything that facilitates harmful or illegal activities. You cannot fund creations that advocate, threaten, or show you causing harm to yourself, other people or animals. In the same way, you cannot promote illegal activities such as property crime, distribution of illegal weapons, or drug manufacturing.

Self-harm
We don’t allow any page that promotes or glorifies self-harm, such as pages that encourage self-injury, suicide, or an eating disorder. Examples include pages that glorify self-scarification or a pro-anorexia campaign. If we believe there’s a credible risk the creator will harm themselves, we will work with law enforcement when needed. If you or someone close to you might be in danger of hurting themselves, please contact local authorities or seek help.

Dangerous activities
We require creators who post dangerous stunts to include a clear disclaimer. We also require that these types of posts be marked as “Subscribers Only" if it is too graphic or dangerous for a general audience.

Spam
We understand it can be hard to grow a fan base, but no one likes being spammed. Be creative and original, don’t post repetitive comments or send unwanted private messages to other members on Buzzkiki.

These are some of the actions we consider to be spamming, which is prohibited on Buzzkiki:
  •     Don’t create pledging schemes; don’t contact other creators to have a pledge-for-a-pledge kind of trade deal.
  •     Don’t use Buzzkiki to release or link to malware or phishing schemes.
  •     Don’t make misleading posts to grow your subscribers.
  •     Don’t post comments on other creators’ pages promoting your own page.
  •     Don’t send a large number of unsolicited private messages asking for support.
  •     Don't use incorrect tagging in order to drive more search results.

Fan accounts
These guidelines also applies to fans. While we believe that creators are best at managing their fanbase there may be times when the support team may be required to review reports for fans behaviour.
Creators If you would like us to review the behavior of one of your fans we will keep the review confidential. We will review reports around hate speech, harassment and solicitation very carefully and we will take action against a fan account if we find that they are in clear violation of these guidelines.

Please remember that we will not share any details related to what kind of action we might have taken against a fans's account. Importantly, if you feel unsafe because a patron is stalking or harassing you, you should always try to seek the help of your local law enforcement and contact the closest cyber crime unit as they will have the most tools and means to help. Buzzkiki will work closely with law enforcement when there is an investigation and if a law enforcement agency sends us a court order or subpoena.

This policy is part of Buzzkiki’s Terms of Service.
