MicroJobs Content Policy
MicroJobs is a free service for advertisement, communication and organisation with certain paid premium features available. MicroJobs provides both an audience for and a source of information, encourages community spirit and makes possible new connections between people.
We respect our users' ownership of and responsibility for the content they choose to share. It is our belief that censoring this content is contrary to our service.
In order to uphold this service, we need to control abuses that threaten our ability to provide this service. As a result, there are some boundaries on the type of content that can be hosted with MicroJobs. The boundaries we have defined are those that both comply with legal requirements and that serve to enhance the service as a whole.
Our content policies play an important role in maintaining a positive experience for you, the users. Please respect these guidelines. From time to time, we may change our content policies so please check here. Also, please note that when applying the policies below, we may make exceptions based on artistic, educational, documentary or scientific considerations or where there are other substantial benefits to the public from not taking action on the content.
Adult Content: We do NOT allow adult content on MicroJobs, including posts that pertain to sexual activity or nudity and images that contain nudity or sexual activity. All adult content will be censored or removed where deemed necessary.
Child safety: We have a zero tolerance policy towards content that exploits children. Some examples of this include:
Child pornography: We will terminate the accounts of any user we find publishing or distributing child pornography. We will also report that user to the authorities.
Paedophilia: We do not allow content that encourages or promotes sexual attraction towards children. For example, do not create posts or post images of children where the content is sexually suggestive.
Hate Speech: We want you to use MicroJobs to grow your community. Dont publish hate posts. By this, we mean content that promotes hate or violence towards groups based on race, ethnicity, religion, disability, gender, age, veteran status or sexual orientation/gender identity. For example, don't write a post saying that members of Race X are criminals or advocating violence against followers of Religion Y.
Crude Content: Don't post content just to be shocking or graphic.
Violence: Don't threaten other people. For example, don't post death threats against another person or group of people and don't post content encouraging your readers to take violent action against another person or group of people.
Copyright: It is our policy to respond to clear notices of alleged copyright infringement. Also, please don't provide links to sites where your readers can obtain unauthorised downloads of other people's content.
Personal and confidential information: It's not ok to publish another person's personal and confidential information. For example, don't post someone else's credit card numbers, Tax File numbers, unlisted phone numbers and driver's licence numbers. Also, please bear in mind that in most cases, information that is already available elsewhere on the Internet or in public records is not considered to be private or confidential.
Impersonating others: Please don't mislead or confuse readers by pretending to be someone else or pretending to represent an organisation when you don't. We're not saying that you can't publish parody or satire - just avoid content that is likely to mislead readers about your true identity.
Illegal activities: Don't use MicroJobs to engage in illegal activities or to promote dangerous and illegal activities. For example, don't author a post encouraging people to drink and drive. Otherwise, we may delete your content. Also, in serious cases such as those involving the abuse of children, we may report you to the appropriate authorities.
Spam: Spam takes several forms in MicroJobs, all of which can result in deletion of your account or content. Some examples include creating posts designed to drive traffic to your post or to move it up in search listings, posting comments on other people's posts just to promote your post and scraping existing content from other sources for the primary purpose of generating revenue or other personal gains.
Malware and viruses: Do not create posts that transmit viruses, cause pop-ups, attempt to install software without the reader's consent or otherwise impact readers with malicious code. This is strictly forbidden on MicroJobs.
