Safety and Privacy
The right to privacy was one of the founding principles of Jeti, and as such the company places immense value on the protection of a user's privacy. Just as we safeguard your private account details and personal information, we ask that you return the favor. Please do not post any private or confidential information about another person without their explicit prior consent. This includes, but is not limited to:
- Phone Numbers
- Medical Conditions
- Social Security Information
To encourage a safe environment, Jeti does not permit any type of content that encourages or promotes suicide or self-harm. We define self-harm as the intentional and direct injuring of one's body. This includes eating disorders and self-mutilation. As with other sensitive topics, Jeti wants our platform to be one where people can discuss and raise awareness to social issues and support each other. As such, we allow content that raises awareness to posts related to suicide or self harm, or content that contains genuine discussion about this topic.
Given the nature of the local interconnected platform Jeti provides, Jeti asks that users immediately report content that they feel poses imminent danger. This includes but is not limited to threats you feel are legitimate and posts signaling suicidal intentions. In situations like this, please use the “emergency” reason when reporting the post.
Hint: In the case of an emergency that you feel is serious enough, please contact your local authorities.
Human exploitation is the term used by experts to describe a number of activities that previously fell under other sections, but have now been gathered here under one umbrella. While there is no concrete definition of Human Exploitation, Jeti prohibits any content that promotes, facilitates, coordinates, or organizes the exploitation of humans.
Jeti has a zero-tolerance policy regarding any content that exploits in a sexual manner or endangers children. Upon notice of content containing the sexual exploitation of children, we will immediately report it to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC), in compliance with applicable law.
We recognize that sometimes people like to share nude or semi-nude pictures of their children with nothing but good intentions, however we will remove these posts due to their potential for abuse by others and to avoid the potential for misuse of the images. If you find any content that contains child sexual exploitation, please immediately report the post and/or user.
As with certain other sensitive topics, we acknowledge that users want to use Jeti as a platform to discuss topics surrounding sexual abuse, violence, or exploitation. While we encourage genuine discussion regarding these topics, Jeti will remove any content that threatens or promotes sexual violence, assault, or exploitation. Additionally, we will remove content that depicts sexual violence or intimate images/videos that are posted without consent from the individuals depicted in the content. Our goal is to provide a place for activists or victims to have a voice to share their experiences while protecting them and everyone else at the same time.
We will also remove content that promotes, displays, advertises, or coordinates commercial sexual services such as prostitution and escort services, as well as sexual acts with non-consenting parties as part of our effort to prevent possible human trafficking, which you can read more about below.
Human exploitation includes human trafficking, and given the unique local nature of the platform that Jeti provides, we feel a we have a special responsibility to do whatever we can to prevent, disrupt, or stop any sort of human trafficking. Jeti stands by the National Human Trafficking Hotline’s definition, that is, human trafficking is the business of stealing freedom for profit.
Human trafficking consists of three parts; an act (such as recruitment or transportation/transfer), a means (such as force, coercion, or fraud) and a purpose (such as forced sex, labor, or slavery).
Human Trafficking is a global problem that affects everyone regardless of age, ethnicity, gender, or location. It’s abusive nature means that victims cannot consent, therefore it is of utmost importance to Jeti to do whatever we can to stop it. If you see a post you suspect is involved in any stage of human trafficking, please immediately report it.
Just as we put an emphasis on protecting the information you share with us, we ask that users of Jeti respect each other's personal information. Any attempts to gain access to another user's account or personal information via deceptive or invasive methods, or abuse of our platform will not be tolerated.
