term of service

GENERAL CONDITIONS

Welcome to WSID.com.  The purpose of this section is so that you know your rights as well as ours.  While this section is lengthy and boring, its purpose is genuine and we try to lay everything out on the table.  This agreement (“User Agreement” or “Agreement”) between WSID.com (“we”, “our,” “us”) and you. This Agreement sets the terms of your use of the WSID.com website and services.

This Agreement is a legal contract between you, members of the public, and us.  You acknowledge that you have read, understood, and agree to be bound by this Agreement.  If you do not agree to this Agreement, then you should not use WSID.com. Also, please look at the Privacy Policy as it contains information on how we collect your information and what we do with it.  

Without advance notice, we may, at any time, for violations of this Agreement or for any other reason we choose: (1) suspend your access to WSID.com, (2) suspend or terminate your membership, and/or (3) remove any of your User Content from WSID.com.

We reserve the right to monitor WSID.com, and your use of the service means you agree to such monitoring.

Graphic Violence and Adult Content

WSID allows some forms of graphic violence and/or adult content. However, you may not use such content in your profile or header images. Additionally, WSID may sometimes require you to remove excessively graphic violence out of respect for the deceased and their families if we receive a request from their family or an authorized representative.

Unlawful Use

You may not use our service for any unlawful purposes or in furtherance of illegal activities.

Abusive Behavior

In order to ensure that people feel safe expressing diverse opinions and beliefs, we prohibit behavior that crosses the line into abuse, including behavior that harasses, intimidates, or uses fear to silence another user’s voice.  Context matters when evaluating for abusive behavior and determining appropriate enforcement actions. 

You may not make specific threats of violence or wish for the serious physical harm, death, or disease of an individual or group of people. This includes, but is not limited to, threatening or promoting terrorism. You also may not affiliate with organizations that — whether by their own statements or activity both on and off the platform — use or promote violence against civilians to further their causes.

You may not promote or encourage suicide or self-harm. When we receive reports that a person is threatening suicide or self-harm, we may take a number of steps to assist them, such as reaching out to that person and providing resources such as contact information for our mental health partners.

You may not promote child sexual exploitation. 

You may not engage in the targeted harassment of someone, or incite other people to do so. We consider abusive behavior an attempt to harass, intimidate, or silence someone else’s voice.

You may not direct abuse at someone by sending unwanted sexual content, objectifying them in a sexually explicit manner, or otherwise engaging in sexual misconduct.

You may not promote violence against, threaten, or harass other people on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, religious affiliation, age, disability, or serious disease.

You may not use hateful images or symbols in your profile image or profile header. You also may not use your username, display name, or profile bio to engage in abusive behavior, such as targeted harassment or expressing hate towards a person, group, or protected category.

You may not publish or post other people's private information without their express authorization and permission. Definitions of private information may vary depending on local laws,

You may not post or share intimate photos or videos of someone that were produced or distributed without their consent.
