Immersionn Community Guidelines
When you use Immersionn, you join a community of people from all over the world. Every cool, new feature on Immersionn involves a certain level of trust. Millions of users respect that trust and we trust you to be responsible too. Following the guidelines below helps to keep Immersionn fun and enjoyable for everyone.
You might not like everything that you see on Immersionn. If you think that content is inappropriate, please contact us via email at the end of this document. Our staff carefully reviews flagged content 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to determine whether there's a violation of our Community Guidelines.
Here are some common-sense rules that'll help you steer clear of trouble. Please take these rules seriously and take them to heart. Don't try to look for loopholes or try to lawyer your way around the guidelines—just understand them and try to respect the spirit in which they were created.
Nudity or sexual content
Immersionn is not for pornography or sexually explicit content. If this describes your video, even if it's a video of yourself, don't post it on Immersionn. Also, be advised that we work closely with law enforcement and we report child exploitation.
If a video is intended to be sexually provocative, it is less likely to be acceptable for Immersionn.
What is and isn't allowed
Sexually explicit content like pornography is not allowed. Videos containing fetish content will be removed or age-restricted depending on the severity of the act in question. In most cases, violent, graphic or humiliating fetishes are not allowed to be shown on Immersionn.
A video that contains nudity or other sexual content may be allowed if the primary purpose is educational, documentary, scientific or artistic, and it isn't gratuitously graphic. For example, a VR film on breast cancer surgery would be appropriate but posting clips out of context from the same documentary might not be. Remember that providing context in the title and description will help us and your viewers determine the primary purpose of the video.
In cases where videos do not cross the line but still contain sexual content, we may apply an age restriction so that only viewers over a certain age can view the content.
Videos containing nudity or dramatised sexual conduct may be age-restricted when the context is appropriately educational, documentary, scientific or artistic. Videos featuring individuals in minimal or revealing clothing may also be age-restricted if they're intended to be sexually provocative, but don't show explicit content.
Harmful or dangerous content
Don't post videos that encourage others to do things that might cause them to get badly hurt, especially kids. Videos showing such harmful or dangerous acts may be age-restricted or removed depending on their severity.
While it might not seem fair to say that you can't show something because of what viewers might do in response, we draw the line at content that intends to incite violence or encourage dangerous or illegal activities that have an inherent risk of serious physical harm or death. We also restrict content that intends to sell certain regulated or illegal goods and services through direct sales or links to sites that sell these items. These items include, but may not be limited to, drugs, pharmaceuticals that require a prescription, alcohol, nicotine products, online gambling casinos, counterfeit documents or stolen credit card information.
Videos that we consider encouraging dangerous or illegal activities include, among other things, instructional bomb-making, choking games, hard drug use or other acts where serious injury may result. A video that depicts dangerous acts may be allowed if the primary purpose is educational, documentary, scientific or artistic (EDSA), and it isn't gratuitously graphic. For example, a news piece on the dangers of choking games would be appropriate but posting clips out of context from the same documentary might not be.
Videos that incite others to commit acts of violence are strictly prohibited on Immersionn. If your video asks others to commit an act of violence or threatens people with serious acts of violence, it will be removed from the site.
We are very sensitive to any harmful or dangerous content that involves minors. If your video shows a minor participating in a harmful or dangerous activity, do not post it. In the interest of protecting minors, we may age-restrict videos showing adults participating in activities that have a high risk of injury or death.
Our products are platforms for free expression. But 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.
Hate speech policy
We encourage free speech and try to defend your right to express unpopular points of view, but we don't permit hate speech.
Hate speech refers to content that promotes violence against or has the primary purpose of inciting hatred against individuals or groups based on certain attributes, such as:
Race or ethnic origin
Sexual orientation/gender identity
There is a fine line between what is and what is not considered to be hate speech. For instance, it is generally acceptable to criticise a nation-state, but if the primary purpose of the content is to incite hatred against a group of people solely based on their ethnicity, or if the content promotes violence based on any of these core attributes, like religion, it violates our policy.
Reporting hateful content
Keep in mind that not everything that is mean or insulting is considered hate speech.
However, if you feel that content violates our hate speech policy, report it to Immersionn for review by sending us an email.
Violent or graphic content
It's not okay to post violent or gory content that's primarily intended to be shocking, sensational or gratuitous. If posting graphic content in a news or documentary context, please be mindful to provide enough information to help people understand what's going on in the video. Don't encourage others to commit specific acts of violence.
We do not permit terrorist organisations to use Immersionn for any purpose, including recruitment. Immersionn also strictly prohibits 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 viewers understand the context. Graphic or controversial footage may be subject to age restrictions or a warning screen.
Content may be age-restricted
In some cases, real, dramatised or fake violence may not be suitable for all ages. Similar to film or television ratings, our age restrictions help viewers to avoid watching content that they may not feel is acceptable for themselves or for their children.
Harassment and cyberbullying
It’s not OK to post abusive videos and comments on Immersionn. If harassment crosses the line into a malicious attack it can be reported and may be removed. In other cases, users may be mildly annoying or petty and should be ignored.
Spam, misleading metadata and scams
Everyone hates spam. Don't create misleading descriptions, tags, titles or thumbnails in order to increase views. It's not okay to post large amounts of untargeted, unwanted or repetitive content, including comments and private messages.
Respect copyright. Only upload videos that you made or that you're authorised to use. This means don't upload videos that you didn't make or use content in your videos that someone else owns the copyright to, such as music tracks, snippets of copyrighted programs or videos made by other users, without necessary authorisations.
If someone has posted your personal information or uploaded a video of you without your consent, you can request removal of content based on our Privacy Guidelines.
Accounts that are established to impersonate another channel or individual may be removed under our impersonation policy.
Please be advised that we work closely with law enforcement and we report child endangerment that we see.
If an Immersionn creator's on- and/or off-platform behaviour harms our users, community, employees or ecosystem, we may respond based on a number of factors including, but not limited to, the egregiousness of their actions and whether a pattern of harmful behaviour exists.
Our response will range from suspending a creator's privileges to account termination.
