Our policies play an important role in maintaining a positive experience for our users on the products listed below (collectively referred to as the “Services”). Please follow these policies as you:

participate in publicly shared Forum System
Share content using a link, or social media sharing system.
We depend heavily upon users to let us know about content that may violate our policies. After we are notified of a potential policy violation, we may review the content and take action, including restricting access to the content, removing the content, refusing to print the content, and limiting or terminating a user’s access to Kenyans247’s products. Note that we may make exceptions to these policies based on artistic, educational or documentary considerations, or when there are other substantial benefits to the public from not taking action.

We occasionally modify these policies, so please check back here for any updates. Beyond the policies listed below, note that several products and features may have additional policies and terms – please check the links provided for those additional requirements.

Illegal Activities
Do not use our Services to engage in illegal activities or to promote activities that are dangerous and illegal, such as the sale of illegal drugs or human trafficking.

We may also remove content that violates applicable local laws. To report content that you believe should be removed based on local laws.

Malicious and deceptive practices
Do not transmit viruses, malware or any other malicious or destructive code. Do not distribute content that harms or interferes with the operation of the networks, servers or other infrastructure of Kenyans247 or others. Do not use our Services for phishing scams.

Hate Speech
Our products are platforms for free expression, but we don’t permit hate speech. Hate speech is content that promotes or condones violence against, or has the primary purpose of inciting hatred against, an individual or group on the basis of their race or ethnic origin, religion, disability, age, nationality, veteran status, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, or any other characteristic that is associated with systemic discrimination or marginalisation.

Harassment, bullying and threats
Do not engage in harassing, bullying or threatening behaviour, and do not incite others to engage in these activities. Anyone using our Services to single someone out for malicious abuse, to threaten someone with serious harm, to sexualise a person in an unwanted way or to harass in other ways may have the offending content removed or be permanently banned from using the Services. In emergency situations, we may escalate imminent threats of serious harm to the police. Bear in mind that online harassment is also illegal in many places and can have serious offline consequences for both the harasser and the victim.

Personal and Confidential Information
Do not distribute other people’s personal and confidential information, such as credit card numbers, confidential national ID numbers or account passwords, without their permission. Do not post or distribute images or videos of minors without the necessary consent from their legal representatives. Report a violation

Child exploitation
Do not upload or share content that exploits or abuses children. This includes all child sexual abuse imagery (even cartoon images) and all content that presents children in a sexual manner. We will remove such content and take appropriate action, which may include disabling accounts and reporting to the Kenya Children Department and the police. Please note that this policy may additionally apply to any content uploaded or transmitted through our Services.

If you find any content that you think exploits children in this manner, do not +1, reshare or comment on such content, even if your intent is to bring it to Kenyans247’s attention. Instead, flag the content through the 'Report abuse' . If you find content elsewhere on the Internet, please contact the Kenya Children Department directly.

Do not spam, including by sending unwanted promotional or commercial content, or unwanted or mass solicitation.

Do not aggressively send invitations, links add people to your circles or message people who you do not know.

Ranking Manipulation

Sexually Explicit Material
Do not distribute sexually explicit or pornographic material. Do not drive traffic to commercial pornography sites.

We do allow naturalistic and documentary depictions of nudity (such as an image of a breastfeeding infant), as well as depictions of nudity that serve a clear educational, scientific or artistic purpose.

Please note that your Kenyans247’s profile photo cannot include mature or offensive content. For example, do not use a photo that is a close-up of a person’s buttocks or cleavage.

It's not OK to post violent or gory content that's primarily intended to be shocking, sensational or gratuitous. If posting graphic content in a news, documentary, scientific or artistic context, please be careful to provide enough information to help people understand what's going on. In some cases, content may be so violent or shocking that no amount of context will allow that content to remain on our platforms. Lastly, don't encourage others to commit specific acts of violence.

Regulated Goods and Services
Our Services enable discussion of many topics, but we do not allow content that facilitates the sale of regulated products and services, including alcohol, gambling, pharmaceuticals and unapproved supplements, tobacco, fireworks, weapons or health/medical devices.

Because these topics are often heavily regulated and may not be appropriate for all ages or in all countries, we have created tools on Kenyans247 to help you target your content to users of the appropriate ages in the right markets. If your content promotes regulated goods and services, you are responsible for applying the appropriate age and geographical restrictions for that content where these tools are available. If we receive a complaint that such content is targeting audiences in violation of applicable laws and regulations, we may remove or restrict the offending content or account.

Even with the appropriate age and geographical restrictions in place, we still do not allow the facilitation of the sale of the products listed above.

Impersonation and misrepresentation
Do not use our services with the intent to deceive, mislead or confuse users by either impersonating any person or organisations that you do not represent, or concealing your ownership or primary purpose. This includes directing content about politics, social issues or matters of public concern to users in a country other than your own, if you misrepresent or intentionally conceal your country of origin or other material details about yourself. We're not saying that you can't publish parody, satire or use a pseudonym/pen name – just avoid content that is likely to mislead readers about your true identity.

Account Hijacking
Do not access another user's account without their permission.

Use of multiple accounts
Do not create or use multiple accounts to evade our policies or bypass blocks, or otherwise subvert restrictions placed on your account. For example, if you’ve been blocked by another user or suspended for abuse, don’t create a replacement account that engages in similar activity.

Terrorist content
We do not permit terrorist organisations to use Kenyans247 for any purpose, including recruitment. Kenyans247 also strictly prohibits content related to terrorism, such as content that promotes terrorist acts, incites violence or celebrates terrorist attacks.

If posting content related to terrorism for an educational, documentary, scientific, or artistic purpose, be mindful to provide enough information so viewers understand the context.

About our Policies and Terms
These policies apply generally to the content that you post on our Services. Some Services have their own separate policies that can be found within those Services, and apply to your use of them. All Google products and Services are governed by their applicable terms of service.

Reporting Potential Issues
If you encounter content or a user that you believe violates the policies above, please report it to us using the "Report abuse" link (or similarly named link). Learn more about reporting abuse on Kenyans247, Hangouts invitations and Kenyans247 Photos.
