Help us and other users by accurately labeling your content to the best of
your ability. When choosing a category or tag, please choose whichever best
describes your content.
Because trufflelive is a community, we rely heavily on all of your support and
we welcome you to report any content or activity that you believe may be in
violation of our Community Standards. If you come across any such abusive
content or activity, please report the activity to us via email at: help@Trufflelive.com
or using the dedicated reporting button.
Remember to include a brief description of the violation and also a screenshot
showing the offender’s username and the abusive content or activity.
Government authorities may also sometimes ask us to remove content that
violates local laws, but does not violate our Community Standards. If we find,
after careful legal review, that the content is illegal under local law, then
we may choose to make it unavailable in that specific country or territory.
Please also keep the following in mind:
We reserve the right to take discretionary action at any time if we believe
that any activity on trufflelive violates any of the Community Standards
outlined above. Remember, not all disagreeable or disturbing content
violates our Community Standards. trufflelive reserves the right to allow
sensitive content when it is deemed to be artistic, educational, scientific
or newsworthy, so reporting potentially abusive content doesn't guarantee
that it will be removed because it may not in fact violate our Community
Standards, in our discretion.
We take your reports seriously, and in most cases, will rely upon you for
information about why a broadcast, user account, or user activity may be
violating our Community Standards. Therefore, if you report any abusive
content, please also tell us why you think that content should be removed
(e.g., does it involve sexual, illegal, or violent activity?).
Note that our review decisions may change from time to time, after receiving
additional context about a specific broadcast, user account, or user
activity, or after seeing new, violating content appearing in a broadcast or
on a user account page.
The penalty for violating our Community Standards may vary, in our sole
discretion, based on the severity of the violation, and the user’s
history on trufflelive. For example, we reserve the right to issue a warning
for a first violation, with continued or more severe violations resulting in
a user’s suspension (e.g. temporarily restrict a user’s ability
to broadcast, or view or comment on a trufflelive broadcast) or permanent
ban from trufflelive.
