Utreon’s Basic Principles

  • Content that violates United States law is not permitted and will be deleted. This generally upholds free speech, but prohibits crimes like libel, incitement, assault, etc.
  • Content that violates the law of any jurisdiction outside of the United States will be redacted in that jurisdiction.
  • Content that violates a Utreon Rule will be redacted everywhere on the system.
  • Content that violates a Channel Rule will be redacted in that channel.
  • The reason(s) for any redaction or deletion will be easily and immediately available.

Impersonation

Aliases are allowed, including those intended to obscure one’s identity or to serve in a clear parody of real-life figures, but impersonation is not allowed. If you are flagged for impersonation, all of your content will be redacted and remain so until you have corrected the conditions that would lead others to reasonably mistake another individual as being (or having authorized) the user of your account.

Nudity or sexual content

Utreon is not for pornography or sexually explicit content. If this describes your video, even if it's a video of yourself, don't post it on Utreon. Also, be advised that we work closely with law enforcement and we report child exploitation.
