The Whyre Privacy Guidelines
Upload only videos you created yourself.
- You must own or hold all necessary rights (copyrights, etc.) to your video.
- “So-and-so gave me permission” does not mean you created it.
- You can upload videos that you appear in or helped create (as director, DP, editor, musician, motion graphics - - artist, actor, etc.) as long as you have the necessary permissions from the copyright holders.
Please review the following for information on dealing with your privacy issue.
We're serious about protecting our users by addressing potential privacy concerns. Our privacy guidelines apply to all users across the world. In other words, while the video in question may not violate your country's privacy laws, it may still violate The Whyre's privacy guidelines.
How does The Whyre determine if content should be removed for a privacy violation?
For content to be considered for removal, an individual must be uniquely identifiable by image, voice, full name or contact information (e.g. home address, email address). Examples that would not violate our privacy guidelines include gamer tags, avatar names and address information in which the individual is not named. We also take public interest, newsworthiness and consent into account when determining if content should be removed for a privacy violation. The Whyre reserves the right to make the final determination of whether a violation of its privacy guidelines has occurred.
What does uniquely identifiable mean?
To be considered uniquely identifiable, there must be enough information in the video that allows others to recognise you. Please note that just because you can identify yourself within the video, it does not mean you are uniquely identifiable to others. A first name without additional context or a fleeting image, for example, would not likely qualify as uniquely identifiable.
You cannot upload certain types of content:
- No rips of movies, music, television, or any other third party copyrighted material.
- No sexually explicit material or pornography.
- No videos that are hateful, harass others, or include defamatory or discriminatory speech.
- No videos that depict or promote unlawful acts, extreme or real-life violence, self-harm, or cruelty toward animals.
Third Party Copyrights
The Whyre respects the intellectual property rights of others. If you believe that your copyright has been infringed, please send us a notice at firstname.lastname@example.org.
