General Provisions & Regulations
As a Free speech supporting social network, we aim to ensure high levels of usability and an environment that does not evolve into things we do not support. Because of this, we have a few basic things that are agreed to each time you log in to the site and post content. Although this may seem a bit like community standards, they are more clear and actually have a purpose. Please abide by the following terms:
There are several levels of penalties levied for violation of the rules, with banning and removal of account being the most severe. Fipbo reserves the right to remove any content that is in violation of this policy. If you feel that your content has been removed wrongly, you can send an email to [email protected] and request a review of the content. However, most often decisions are final, and are only implemented when the content blatantly goes against our policy.
This is not a complete list of things you should not do, and this list will be changed and added to as time goes on. The point here is, don't do things that will get you removed from the platform. Use common sense.
Content Rights and Ownership
Any content posted on Fipbo must follow this policy and is subject to the following hold-harmless clauses as enacted by social media distributary standards: Any content posted on your Fipbo profile/account will be sharable throughout the platform. Any materials which claim strict copyright policies concerning their distribution should NOT be posted on Fipbo. Any images bearing a watermark are able to be distributed as long as they retain the watermark after shared. ANY offering of software/services are provided by a company owned by you, and licensing requirements are provided outside of the scope of Fipbo. No attempt is made to digitally/physically alter any copyright/watermark/license contained on the content provided. By utilizing and logging into Fipbo, you provide expressed consent for distribution of your content across the platform, and hold harmless Fipbo, and its affiliates, from any specific actions or modifications a member of the platform makes to such content. If you feel your content has been wrongly stolen, or altered in a way that removes a federal copyright from such content, please send a message to [email protected] and detail the violation. When e-mailing the DMCA department, please include the following info: Link to the post in question. Your Full Name. A valid e-mail to contact. Documentation/proof showing copyright claim is valid. Details about the incident. Fipbo will respond and attempt to resolve any DMCA claims in a timely manner (typically 3-5 business days). Please allow this time for an agent to review your report. Once reviewed, an agent will contact you for any additional details, or provide a status of the report. Any serious violations will be referred to the legal department for follow up information, and possible preparation to send to a court of law. Be advised that Fipbo will only assist in the capacity of providing evidence that a violation has been committed, however, will not pay legal fees or be held as a defendant in a court of law concerning such violation.
Your Account & Profile
Your account on Fipbo comes with its own set of standards and protections. As a member of Fipbo, you agree to these terms upon login, and continued use of the platform.
The following policies relate to your account, and must be adhered to as part of continued use of our platform:
Be personally aware that you are in control of your account. Therefore, any violations concerning your account will be directed specifically towards the account in question, and may not reach to other accounts owned by you. However, there may be special cases where ALL accounts owned by a specific user can be penalized for misbehavior and clear violation of the terms and conditions set forth. In these circumstances, all accounts tied to you will be contacted concerning the violation committed, and the action needed to remedy and/or reason for account removal.
You, as the account owner, may also choose to delete your account at any time and for any reason. Fipbo may not attempt to coerce/force any user to retain their account on the platform at any time.
Fipbo reserves the right to suspend and/or delete your account for violation of policies, rules, and legal reasons.
Advertising and Refunds
Fipbo does NOT offer refunds on products and services that have been purchased on the network. This includes pro plans, advertising, memberships, and product services which require a cost. Refunds are not offered, as all products and services offered by Fipbo are digital in nature.
Media Agencies & Government Officials/Law Enforcement
Although you are welcome on this platform as a user to convey your opinions, at no point will you attempt to use someone else's opinion against them using your authority or power. Any attempt to arrest, defame, smear, or otherwise bring hardship upon another creator on Fipbo that does not directly violate the rules specified above will be met with legal challenges, and lawsuits stemming from improper use of our platform. In other words, do not even attempt to stifle the valid personal opinion of someone else that does not directly violate the law.
