Keek is an online community of unique and interesting individuals from all around the world. All users should strive to respect each other and be responsible for their own actions. Being respectful and responsible in the community means many different things to many different users, but some common guidelines are as follows:
The following is a list of content that is not authorized to be shown on the site. This content should be flagged and/or the user should be reported to us immediately:
Used sensibly, flagging can be a positive community moderation tool that keeps Keek safe and enjoyable to use. Flagging content will not automatically delete it from the system as not everyone will find the same content as objectionable as others.
Abusing the flagging feature is not permitted and may result in account deactivation and/or banning from the site on a permanent basis.
Abusing the reporting feature is not permitted and may result in account deactivation and/or banning from the site.
For safety and security reasons you should never give out your personal information online, especially your private address, location, credit card number, telephone number, or names of your local school, church or other community organization that you attend. If you post your own or any other user’s personal information, the content may be deleted, and/or you may lose access to your account and/or be banned from further use of the Site.
Remember, your keeks, text comments, and keekbacks are public and can be seen and saved by anyone who uses the internet. People are not always who they claim to be in their profile and you should be wary of anyone asking for your private or personal information. You should never post content to a public forum that you would not want a stranger to see.
If another user has shared your private information, you can report the user, or email email@example.com to request an investigation.
As a security measure Keek staff members will never request that you send them your account password. Should you receive a request for your password from a source that appears to be from Keek ignore the request and report it to us by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you suspect your account has been compromised by a third-party you should immediately take action to secure your account. You should change your password to a more secure password using a combination of letters and numbers, as well as capitals and lowercase characters. Longer passwords are more secure but be sure that you are able to remember the combination easily. Secure passwords should be hard to guess by third-parties and should not contain personal phrases or information.
Cyber bullying occurs when an individual repeatedly harasses another user online through text messages, or video messages, with the intent to cause harm to the other person.
It is important to note that bullying and harassment are deliberate and repeated actions intended to trouble, harm, or attack another person. If a user is merely stating an opinion that you do not agree with, this is not considered cyber bullying. However, if this person continuously harasses you in a hostile and intimidating manner then it is considered cyber bullying.
It is best not to engage the cyber bully in any way as they are often looking for other users to get involved. Simply cutting off communication with them and reporting them is the best and most effective way to deal with them.
If you encounter a user who is potentially suicidal, seeking help, or is harming themselves, it is best to take such situations seriously. If you are comfortable interacting with the person you can offer support or guidance. Listed below are some support outlets that you can also share with the user.
If you yourself are suicidal, seeking help, or are engaging in self-harm actions, please consider seeking professional support, help, and guidance. There are many outlets available to help you through these tough times. Often times there are more people who care for you and wish to help you than you may realize. Finding someone to talk to can really help and the resources listed below are a good place to start.
YOU MUST BE 13 YEARS OF AGE OR OLDER TO USE THIS SITE.
If you are aware of an account that was created by a child under the age of 13, you can report the underage user by emailing email@example.com and including a link to the URL or the username of the underage account.
NOTE: If the age of the child cannot be verified through the information provided the account may remain active until such time as we are able to verify the age of the child.
If your child is under the age of 13, please see the section entitled “Reporting an Underage Child” for information regarding how to remove the account.
If your child is 13 years of age or older and you are concerned about the content of his or her profile, we encourage you to begin by talking to your teen about the subject. Engaging in a dialogue with your teen about what is and is not appropriate content to post is usually the fastest and easiest way to address the issue. Talking with your teen can also help you better understand your teen’s interactions on Keek.
