We depend heavily upon members and the broader professional community to let us know about content that may violate our policies. After we are notified of a potential policy violation, we may review the content and take action, including restricting access to the content, removing the content, refusing to print the content and limiting, suspending, or terminating a user’s access to SPIRIT DRIVERS products and services or other actions including, without limitation, as outlined in SPIRIT DRIVERS’ Code of Conduct, Policies and Procedures and Bylaws. Note that we reserve the right to make exceptions to these policies based on artistic, educational, or documentary considerations, or when there are other substantial benefits to the professional community at large from not taking action. We occasionally modify these policies, so please check back here for any updates.
- Illegal Activities
Do not use Spirit Drivers Services to engage in illegal activities or to promote activities that are illegal or dangerous, such as the sale of illegal drugs or human trafficking, or any other activity that is in violation of any local, national, or international law. We may also remove content that violates applicable local laws. To report content that you believe should be removed based on local laws, contact [email protected]
- Malicious and Deceptive Practices
Do not transmit viruses, malware, or any other malicious or destructive code. Do not distribute content that harms or interferes with the operation of the networks, servers, or other infrastructure of Spirit Drivers, its members or others. Do not use SPIRIT DRIVERS Services for phishing scams.
- Hate Speech
Our products are platforms for free expression, but we do not 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.
- Harassment, Bullying and Threats
Do not engage in harassing, bullying or threatening behavior, and do not incite others to engage in these activities. Anyone using Spirit Drivers Services to single someone out for malicious abuse, to threaten someone with serious harm, to sexualize a person in an unwanted way, or to harass in other ways may have the offending content removed or be permanently banned from Spirit Drivers. In emergency situations, we may escalate imminent threats of serious harm to law enforcement. Keep in mind that online harassment is also illegal in many places and can have serious offline consequences for both the harasser and the victim.
- Personal and Confidential Information
Do not distribute other people’s personal and confidential information, such as credit card numbers, confidential national ID numbers, or account passwords, without their express permission. Do not post or distribute images or videos of minors without the necessary consent from their legal representatives. Report any violations to [email protected]
Do not upload or share content that exploits or abuses children. This includes all child sexual abuse imagery (even cartoon images) and all content that presents children in a sexual manner. We will remove such content and take appropriate action, which may include disabling accounts and reporting to law enforcement. Note that this policy may additionally apply to any content uploaded or transmitted through Spirit Drivers Services. If you find any content that you think exploits children in this manner, do not re-share or comment on such content, even if your intent is to bring it to Spirit Drivers attention. Instead, notify [email protected] as soon as possible.
Do not solicit or spam, including by sending unwanted promotional or commercial content, or unwanted or mass solicitation. Do not aggressively send invitations, add people to your SPIRIT DRIVERS groups or forums, or message SPIRIT DRIVERS members that you do not know.
- Sexually Explicit Material
Do not distribute sexually explicit or pornographic material. Do not drive traffic to commercial pornography sites. Ensure that your Spirit Drivers member profile photo is appropriate.
Refrain from posting violent or gory content that is primarily intended to be shocking, sensational, or gratuitous. If posting graphic content in a news, documentary, scientific, or artistic context, please be mindful to provide enough information to help people understand what’s going on. In some cases, content may be so violent or shocking that no amount of context will allow that content to remain on our platforms. Do not encourage others to commit specific acts of violence.
Do not use our Services to mislead or confuse SPIRIT DRIVERS members by pretending to be someone else or pretending to represent an organization you do not represent.
- Account Hijacking
Do not access another SPIRIT DRIVERS member’s account without their expressed permission.
- Terrorist Content
Spirit Drivers strictly prohibits posting or sharing of content related to terrorism, such as content that promotes terrorist acts, incites violence, or celebrates terrorist attacks. If posting content related to terrorism for an educational, documentary, scientific, or artistic purpose, be mindful to provide enough information so all viewers will understand the context in which it is presented.
