All individuals accessing or using Tackgram’s services must adhere to the policies set forth in the Tackgram Rules. Failure to do so may result in Tackgram taking one or more of the following enforcement actions:
• Requiring you to delete prohibited content before you can again create new posts and interact with other Tackgram users;
• Temporarily limiting your ability to create posts or interact with other Tackgram users;
• Asking you to verify account ownership with an email address.

We consider adult content to be any media that is pornographic and/or may be intended to cause sexual arousal. Tackgram does not allow graphic violence and/or adult content in Posts even if marked as containing sensitive media.

Distribution of hacked materials
We do not permit the use of our services to directly distribute content obtained through hacking that contains personal identifiable information, may put people in imminent harm or danger, or contains trade secrets. Direct distribution of hacked materials includes posting hacked content on Tackgram (for instance, in the text of a Post, or in an image), or directly linking to hacked content hosted on other websites.
At times, we may prevent certain content from trending. This includes content that violates the Tackgram Rules.
Misuse of usernames
Selling usernames: You may not buy or sell Tackgram usernames.
We believe in freedom of speech and open dialogue, but that means little as an underlying philosophy if voices are silenced because people are afraid to speak up. In order to ensure that people feel safe expressing diverse opinions and beliefs, we prohibit behavior that crosses the line into abuse, including behavior that harasses, intimidates, or uses fear to silence another user’s voice.
Context matters when evaluating for abusive behavior and determining appropriate enforcement actions. Factors we may take into consideration include, but are not limited to whether:
• the behavior is targeted at an individual or group of people;
• the report has been filed by the target of the abuse or a bystander;
• the behavior is newsworthy and in the legitimate public interest.
Violence and physical harmViolence:
You may not make specific threats of violence or wish for the serious physical harm, death, or disease of an individual or group of people. This includes, but is not limited to, threatening or promoting terrorism. You also may not affiliate with organizations that — whether by their own statements or activity both on and off the platform — use or promote violence against civilians to further their causes.Suicide or self-harm:
You may not encourage suicide or self-harm. When we receive reports that a person is threatened by suicide or self-harm, we may take a number of steps to assist them and take action against the offender through any appropriate processes necessary. Child sexual exploitation:
You cannot promote child sexual exploitation.
Abuse and hateful conductAbuse:
You may not engage in the targeted harassment of someone, or incite other people to do so. We consider abusive behavior an attempt to harass, intimidate, or silence someone else’s voice.Unwanted sexual advances:

You may not encourage violence against, threaten, or harass other people on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, religious affiliation, age, disability, or serious disease.Hateful imagery and display names:
You may not use hateful images or symbols in your profile image or profile header. You also may not use your username, display name, or profile bio to engage in abusive behavior, such as targeted harassment or expressing hate towards a person, group, or protected category.
Private information and intimate mediaPrivate information:
