Community Guidelines

Imagine | Create | Share | Respect!

The KickPin app enables people from all over the world to create, design, plan and, most importantly, share all types of media in a cohesive space we call a Board. A Board can take any form, from a single image to a complex design filled with maps, videos, images, webpages and text. KickPin wants each member of the community to express themselves creatively, share their thoughts and experiences freely, and safely explore their curiosities about the rest of the world.

Here are a few guidelines to make sure KickPin is a fun and safe experience for everyone:

Share Your Boards: When you upload content to KickPin, we assume it is your content or you have written permission to use it. Please respect other people’s copyright. We have built in ways to celebrate other people’s material posted on KickPin, like leaving them a comment, or republishing their story so all of your followers can enjoy it too. Our copyright procedures are set forth in the Terms of Use. You also may not impersonate others on KickPin.

The Platinum Rule: Treat others the way they want to be treated. Be respectful when interacting with other members of the community. Expressing yourself through creative boards might be easy for some, but it’s a big deal for others. Hateful, distasteful or aggressive  comments ruin everyone’s day. Keep it positive, and if you have nothing nice to say, well, you know the rest.

Nudity and Mature Content: KickPin is meant for everyone of all ages. While we consider tasteful nudity to be art… images, videos and websites of a pornographic nature do not belong on KickPin. We don’t want to elaborately articulate what is and what is not pornographic… but we know it when we see it.  Most importantly, we want the vast majority of our users to feel comfortable exploring KickPin.

If it’s Illegal, it doesn’t belong on KickPin: You may not use our service for any unlawful purposes or in furtherance of illegal activities, including violence and threats of violence. We do reserve the right to take appropriate action, which may include reporting you to the authorities. International users agree to comply with all local laws regarding online conduct and acceptable content.

Losers use spam: KickPin is a place to develop and share ideas, art, fun, and experiences with others, so please don’t use your account to spam the community. If you’re not sure if it’s spam, here is a list of things we don’t allow: posting stories with deliberately misleading hashtags, purchasing likes, repetitive comments, and egregious self or brand promotion on other people’s boards.

Profile Squatting: We reserve the right to restrict the use of certain usernames and profile URLs on behalf of businesses or individuals that hold legal claim or trademark to it. Accounts that are inactive for more than six months may have their profile URLs removed or reclaimed.

Reporting Violations: KickPin is a diverse community, and from time to time you may find a story offensive. If you think the story violates one of these guidelines, report it and a KickPin team member will investigate. We’ve got your back.

It is important for you to note that breaking the rules outlined here may result in a disabled account, or discontinued access to KickPin, without warning. Also, remember that by using KickPin, you are subject to our Terms of Use.

Now go forth and create!
