Community Guidelines

Updated March 8, 2023

Our mission is to create an online hub for hundreds of millions of content creators and the billions of fans, followers and friends who use Lyvely to consume content, connect, and communicate. We want to ensure that everyone has a positive experience on Lyvely, so we thank you for being a respectful member of our community.

Please take the time to read our guidelines below.

Be You

  • Always use your true identity on Lyvely. In every circumstance provide accurate information about yourself or your organization, and only share if it’s authentic and true.
  • If you are benefitting in any way (for example, monetary compensation, free products or services) by sharing or endorsing content, brands, someone or something – a clear notice of the personal benefit to you must be clearly stated with the endorsement.

Illegal and harmful activities

Lyvely does not allow anything that facilitates harmful or illegal activities. Anything that advocates, threatens, or shows you causing harm to yourself, other people or animals is absolutely prohibited within our community. You cannot promote illegal activities, distribution of illegal weapons, or drug manufacturing.

Self-harm

  • We have zero tolerance for any page or content that promotes or glorifies self-harm. For example, pages that encourage or glorify self-injury, suicide, or eating disorders. We will work with law enforcement when needed if we believe there’s a risk the creator will harm themselves or influence others to cause harm to themselves. If you or someone close to you might be in danger of hurting themselves, please contact local authorities or seek help: http://www.suicide.org/suicide-hotlines.html
  • We do allow creations that promote awareness and have educational value. For example, eating disorder and mental health recovery stories. We want Lyvely to be an uplifting, inspiring place where people feel safe and have a sense of community responsibility.

Child safety

  • Lyvely has zero tolerance for behaviors and actions that exploit minors in any way. Users actively facilitating exploitation or attempting to exploit minors in any way will be removed from Lyvely immediately. We will report all users engaging in such activity to legal authorities.

Animal safety

  • Lyvely has zero tolerance for behaviors and actions that threaten animal abuse in any shape or form. Users actively facilitating exploitation or harm to animals in this way will be removed from Lyvely. We will report all users engaging in such activity to legal authorities. Sports and activities such as fishing and spearfishing are not an issue on Lyvely and do not get categorized as animal abuse or offensive content.

Illegal activity

These points also apply to external links in your content or profile. This includes clickable URLs, verbally directing users to other sites in video, as well as other forms.

How we enforce our guidelines

Lyvely is made up of a diverse community and while you may not agree with someone’s point of view, it may not be a violation of our Community Guidelines. That being said, when you see something on Lyvely that you feel goes against our Community Guidelines, please take the time to report it to us.

When we remove content that violates our Community Guidelines and policies, you will be contacted by one of our case managers. We pride ourselves on making these decisions as fair and transparent as possible and we always want our community to feel like they have an open line of communication with us.

Lyvely will always try to educate our users and work with them to understand how a rule has been broken and how we can move forward. In the circumstance where the violation is regarded as unforgivable we may suspend indefinitely or remove the account.

If you believe your content has been removed in error, you will always have the opportunity to appeal and work with your case manager. Continued violations will result in permanent removal from Lyvely.
