Community Guidelines

Our Code of Conduct and your pledge to be an upstanding member of the Now&Me community.

Now&Me is a safe space for people to share their feelings. We put no restrictions on what you share, however, we have some community guidelines that must be taken into consideration. Please read the following carefully:

1. Posting

Posts should not be promotional.

Now&Me is a safe space to share your feelings or talk about issues. We do not approve of posts that are promotional in any nature. If your post is particularly promoting a brand or a person, it would not be approved. If you have a job opening or investment you are looking for, kindly use business websites that are available.

Do not spam others’ posts and comment threads with unsolicited content, links, offers or promotions. Now&Me does not allow any content that is fraudulent or constitutes false advertising (e.g. scams and spam). We also forbid any accounts that impersonate or pretend to be a business, organization, public figure, or private individual.

Do not share personal information.

Respect others’ privacy and ensure that you do not give out personal details of any person. Using the first name is acceptable, however, do not provide last names, emails, addresses or any contact details of anyone. Do not dox anybody or post any personal information that can be used against any party.

Please, when discussing triggering issues/events, check the ‘Trigger Warning’ checkbox of posting.

A good way to know if you should add a Trigger Warning is to ask yourself, “If I was reading this, would it make me feel disturbed or re-think potentially disturbing events that I would not want to revisit?” A trigger is also anything that has to do with the act of considering Self-Harm, attempting Self Harm, actually, Self Harming or discussing a Past Attempt.

Kindness goes a long way. Play nice.

Please ensure that your content does not hurt the sentiment(s) of a particular religious, political or ethnic group. The content should also not promote violence. Usernames or Profile pictures that are hateful or harmful will not be allowed.

Have Empathy

Being empathetic means stepping into the other person’s shoes. It is important as it helps you understand what others are feeling so you can appropriately respond to the situation. We highly value empathy at Now&Me. Be sensitive when responding, it takes a lot of courage to share how you feel.

Don’t discuss politics or religion.

Kindly refrain from posting any religious, political, sexist, ethnically or racially offensive, or obscene messages

2. We care:

We care about your privacy

We assure you that your data is safe with us and we do not share it with any third party. Your email ID submitted at the time of registration is also not shared anywhere else. You can trust us with your personal information and your feelings :)

No spam

We assure you that we will not fill your inbox with unnecessary emails!

3. Copyright/Plagiarism:

“You were born an original. Don't die a copy”
-John Mason
Ensure that your work is your own. Please don’t claim someone else's work to be your own. Plagiarised work will not be accepted.

Don't upload content that is prohibited or illegal in any manner.

This includes but is not limited to drug use, bestiality, and terrorism. If we find you doing it, your account will be deleted and we'll take appropriate action, which may include reporting you to law enforcement.

3. Safety:

Bullying and Harassment

Now&Me is not a venue for you to harass, abuse, spam, impersonate, or intimidate others. So, make an effort to be polite and respectful in your interactions with other users.
Generally, users are responsible for their interactions with other users on Now&Me. However, users are not to post any content or engage in any behaviour with the intent of creating harm or emotional distress to other users. This includes verbally abusive content or any content that is directed at specific Now&Me users or repeated unwanted contact with a user.

We recognize that bullying can be harmful, especially to minors, and our policy provides heightened protection for minors because they are more vulnerable and susceptible to online bullying.

Threats

Any credible statements of intent to commit violence against any person, groups of people, or place (city or smaller) are prohibited and can and may be reported to law enforcement. We do not allow people to use Now&Me to incite violence or to encourage, co-ordinate or direct others to commit violence.

Sexual Harassment:

Everyone should be treated with respect. Participate on the platform while acknowledging that everyone deserves respect and comfort — each of us has the right to enjoy our experience without fear of harassment, discrimination, or condescension, whether blatant or via micro-aggressions.

All forms of communication should not demean others, especially not in a sexual or condescending manner. Now&Me has a zero tolerance policy for any sexual / flirtatious talks. Please be well aware of when not to cross the line. Any sexual harassment will immediately be blocked, can lead to revokement of access to the platform and in certain scenarios also be reported legally.

Don’t encourage or promote self-harm.

We do not tolerate the promotion of self-harm or the encouragement of others to do things that might cause them to get hurt.

Don’t harm children.

To say that Now&Me has a zero-tolerance policy towards harmful content involving minors would be an understatement. In order to protect children from criminal predators, particularly in crimes involving child sexual abuse, we will aggressively report and cooperate with law enforcement with the goal of prosecuting to the full extent of the law. This includes, but is not limited to, images, video, comments, and other communications.

Be respectful of Boundaries / Do NOT cross the line

Be self-aware. Respect the space & boundaries of other people and understand where and how you are crossing the line. Now&Me has a zero tolerance policy towards women harassment and perstering of any manner.

Don't be creepy.

You know them. Don't be them. If you are them, your account will be deleted.

Hate Speech

Now&Me has a zero-tolerance policy towards attacking a person or group based on race, ethnicity, national origin, religion, disability, disease, age, sexual orientation, gender, or gender identity.

Now&Me does not allow the posting of any content that promotes violence, abuse, humiliation/shaming, or other grave mistreatment of groups or individuals.

An exception may be made for posts of such content for the purpose of educating others about this subject matter in an effort to combat such behaviour and conduct (e.g. charities or other non-profit organizations building awareness or fundraising).

Similarly, in some cases, words or terms that might otherwise violate our standards are used self-referentially or in an empowering way. When this is the case, we allow the content, but we expect you to clearly indicate your intent, which helps us better understand why you shared it. However, please use sound judgment and ensure your intent is clear in such posts.

In Conclusion,
Be kind.

We're a global community of many types of people, who all have the right to feel comfortable. These people might not:

  • think what you think
  • believe what you believe
  • perceive how you perceive
  • see what you see

So, be gentle, polite and respectful in your interactions with other members.
If you don't feel that you can abide by our Community Guidelines as outlined above, maybe Now&Me isn't for you. We've crafted these guidelines to ensure that everyone within the Now&Me community feels safe and respected.
