Horse, Inc. wants its members to have fun when using the HORSE App and Website, but in a safe, responsible and respectful manner. The following Community Guidelines are here to provide a few dos and don’ts when using the App.
We're a global community of many types of people, who all have the right to feel comfortable and who may not think what you think, believe what you believe or see what you see. HORSE is a fun way to interact with your friends and others through the internet, but it also gives people the means to insult and/or harass others without taking full responsibility for their actions. We require that you be polite and respectful in your interactions with other members when using the HORSE App and Website.
Respect the copyright of others. This means don't steal videos that other people have created and pass them off as your own. Of course you should try to replicate any fun challenge you wish but be sure the video you upload is content you created or that you are authorized to use.
If you see abuse, report it. Before you write anything, ask yourself if your contribution increases the strength and virtue of the HORSE community.
Be creative, try new things, participate, find your muse, and show us how you play HORSE!
This includes other people's videos and/or stuff you've copied or collected from around the Internet. Accounts that consist primarily of such collections may be deleted at any time.
Videos involving children (anyone under the age of 18) are particularly sensitive. Videos containing children should never be sexually suggestive or violent. Please be cautious when posting something involving a child. Furthermore, don’t bully minors in your video challenges or create videos that encourage others to bully minors. Being a teenager is complicated enough without the anxiety, sadness, and isolation caused by bullying.
HORSE is not for pornography or sexually explicit content. Most nudity is not allowed, particularly if it is in a sexual context. If this describes your video challenge, don’t post it on HORSE. Generally if a video is intended to be sexually provocative, it is less likely to be acceptable for HORSE. The same rule applies to your profile photo. Accounts found sharing nudity or mature content will be disabled and your access to HORSE may be discontinued.
Don't post videos which encourage others to do things that may cause them to get badly hurt. Videos showing such harmful and/or dangerous acts may be age-restricted or removed depending on their severity. It’s also not okay to post violent or gory content that’s primarily intended to be shocking, sensational or disrespectful. Your challenges should in no way cause serious harm onto yourself or others.
If we find you doing that, your account will be deleted and we'll take appropriate action, which may include reporting you to the authorities. This means not posting videos that challenges someone to fatally injure a person, consume illegal drugs, participate in illegal street racing, or commit a crime of any sort.
We don't support content that promotes or condones violence against individuals or groups based on race or ethnic origin, religion, disability, gender, age, nationality, veteran status, or sexual orientation/gender identity, or whose primary purpose is inciting hatred on the basis of these core characteristics. This can be a delicate balancing act, but if the primary purpose is to attack a protected group, the content crosses the line. While it might not seem fair to say you can’t show something because of what viewers theoretically might do in response, we draw the line at content that’s intended to incite violence or encourage dangerous, illegal activities that have an inherent risk of serious physical harm or death.
If we find you engaging in commercial activity, we will warn you or delete your account. Some examples include selling products, services, or yourself through your account, using your account solely as a product catalog, or presenting product demos and tutorials.
You will see all sorts of things on HORSE, some of which may offend you. If you are offended by a video you can either choose to ignore it or flag it by selecting the flag icon that appears under each video. If you think there's immediate cause for concern, you can also drop us a note to report content and/or someone's behavior to HORSE staff at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you see videos that you’ve created in another member’s account don't panic. This is probably just a misunderstanding and not malicious. A good first step is to contact them and politely ask them to remove it. If that doesn't work, please file a Notice of Infringement with the HORSE Copyright Team who will take it from there.
