We want Mylivn to be a place where everyone can express their own way of living, feel respected and be able to connect with others freely. This page includes important information about our expectations of you as a user while using Mylivn. We take these rules very seriously and expect you to do the same, so please take your time to carefully read through the following guidelines.

The Mylivn Community Guidelines (along with all incorporated policies), Terms of Service, Privacy Policy and the Cookie Policy collectively make up the “Mylivn User Agreement” that governs the access to and the use of organic content on Mylivn’s services.

When accessing or using Mylivn’s services, failure to adhere to the policies set forth may result in the following enforcement actions:

  • Required removal of prohibited content before you can again create new posts and interact with other users.
  • Temporarily limit your ability to create new posts or interact with other users.
  • Asking you to verify your account with a valid email address.
  • Permanently suspending your account(s).

If you attempt to evade a permanent suspension by creating new accounts, your new accounts may be suspended.

We may change these rules from time to time and reserve the right to do so. The most current version is always available at https://mylivn.com/.

Safety

We work hard to keep disturbing or unsafe content off Mylivn. In order to keep Mylivn a safe place for everyone we delete some types of content, other content we simply hide from public view.

Self-harm

We remove any content that promotes self-harm, like self-mutilation, eating disorders or drug abuse.

Sexually Explicit Content and Minors

We remove content that physically or sexually exploits people. In certain cases, we work with law enforcement to address the sexualization of minors. It is not allowed to post, save or send nude or sexual content involving anyone under the age of 18, including yourself. We also prohibit accounts that promote or distribute pornographic content.

Harassment and Bullying

We have a zero tolerance for bullying or harassment of any kind. If another user blocks you, do not try to contact them from another account. Bullying and harassment can come in many different forms and in many different places. We want Mylivn users to feel safe and respected and will remove content that purposefully targets private individuals with the intention of degrading or shaming them. Online bullying can be especially harmful to minors, so our policies provide heightened protection to minors due to more vulnerability and susceptibility to harassment. Our bullying policies do not apply to public figures because we want to allow conversion that may include critical discussions of people who are featured more often in the public eye, or have a large public audience. These discussions must comply with our Community Guidelines, and we will remove content about public figures that violates other policies, including hate speech or credible threats. Our harassment policy applies to both public and private individuals to prevent malicious or unwanted contact on Mylivn. We allow users to share and re-share posts if the intent is to draw attention to content that is harassing in context.

Privacy Violations and Rights

We work hard to keep your account secure and safeguard your personal information in order to protect you from potentially harmful content or situations. You should not post personal or confidential information about others without gaining their consent first. We provide our users with ways to report imagery on each post that they believe to be in violation of their privacy rights.

Hate Speech

We do not allow hate speech on Mylivn due to the fact that in some cases this may promote real-world violence. Where the intention of speech is unclear, this content may be removed. It is expected for users to clearly indicate their intent in order to better understand why the content is shared. It is not allowed to post any content that demeans, defames, or promotes discrimination or violence on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability, or veteran status. It is also prohibited to deliberately spread false information that causes harm or malicious deception.

Violence and Criminal Behavior

Violence and Violent Organizations

We remove content that could be used to threaten or organize violence or support violent organizations. Never threaten to harm a person, a group or someone’s property. Encouraging violence is prohibited on Mylivn.

Graphic Content

Content that glorifies violence or celebrates the suffering or humiliation of others will be removed. The ability to discuss important issues such as human rights abuses or acts of terrorism are in some cases valued and for that reason, may be allowed after careful review.

Promoting or Publicizing Crime

We do not condone promoting or publicizing violent crime, theft, and/or fraud and prohibit users to post such content. It is also not permitted to depict criminal activity or admit to crimes you or others have committed. It is however allowed to debate or advocate for the legality of criminal activities, as well as address them in a rhetorical or satirical way.

Objectionable Content

Hazardous Materials

We remove content that is used to sell or buy regulated goods, like drugs, alcohol, tobacco, firearms and other hazardous materials.

Inappropriate Content

We only allow users to post content that is appropriate for a diverse audience. For various reasons, nudity on Mylivn is not allowed. This includes photos, videos, and some digitally-created content that show sexual intercourse, genitals, and close-ups of fully-nude buttocks. It also includes some photos of female nipples, but nudity in photos of paintings, sculptures and art pieces are however allowed.

Spam and Impersonation

You may not impersonate individuals, groups, or organizations in a manner that is intended to or does mislead, confuse, or deceive others.

Reporting and Copyright

If you notice something that you believe may violate our guidelines, please help us by using our reporting options where available. We review each report as quickly as possible to remove content that doesn’t fit our guidelines. When you complete a report, provide as much information as possible, such as links, usernames and descriptions of the content, so that we may find and review the reported content as quickly as possible. It is possible that we may remove entire posts if either the imagery or associated captions violate our guidelines. You may find content that you do not like or necessarily agree with, but that happens to not violate the Community Guidelines. If that happens, you always have the option to unfollow or to block the person who posted this content.

Many disputes can be resolved directly to those who are involved in the matter. For example, if one of your posts was posted by another user, you could try commenting on the post asking the person to take it down. If that does not seem to fix the problem, you can try reporting the post. Do not target the user who posted this content by posting screenshots and drawing attention to the situation because this could be classified as harassment.

We may also work in some situations with law enforcement, including when we believe that there is a risk of physical harm or a threat to public safety.

When using Mylivn, be sure to follow all relevant laws and regulations.
