Child safety policy Eidok has zero tolerance for content involving children being physically abused or sexually exploited. If your account is found to have shared such content, the content will be immediately removed and your account will be promptly terminated. Furthermore, if Eidok believes a child is in danger, we will report the content to law enforcement and assist with any investigations.
I. Prohibited Content Involving Minors A minor is defined as a person under the legal age of majority; usually anyone younger than 18 years old in most countries.
If you are sharing content on Eidok, note that Eidok strictly prohibits any upload of content involving minors which fits any of the descriptions below:
Sexualization of minors: Sexually explicit content featuring minors and content that sexually exploits minors. We report content containing child sexual abuse imagery to the local authorities. Dangerous acts involving minors: Content showing a minor participating in dangerous activity or encouraging minors to engage in dangerous activities that may lead to injury, including dangerous stunts, dares, or pranks. Infliction of emotional distress on minors: Content that could cause minor participants or viewers emotional distress, such as simulating parental abuse, coercing minors, exposing minors to mature subjects, or threatening violence. Cyberbullying and harassment of minors: Content that targets individuals for abuse or humiliation; reveals personal information, such as email addresses or bank account numbers; records someone without their consent; sexually harass; or encourages others to bullying or harassment. Intentionally misleading family content: Content that intentionally misleads viewers by appearing to be family content, but contains sexual themes, violence, obscene, or other mature themes not suitable for young audiences. II. Reporting Content Involving Abuse of Minors Images and videos of minors being physically abused or sexually exploited are strictly against Eidok policies, and are illegal in most countries in the world.
If you see images or videos on Eidok of a minor being physically abused or sexually exploited, we ask that you:
Please contact your local law enforcement immediately in the event of an emergency (ex. assault in progress). They may be able to identify and rescue the child. Report the content or video to our Support Team: by using the “Report” button below each video. Notify the local entity in charge of Child protection on the Internet. If you’re in the USA: you may directly contact the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children using the CyberTipline: Visit https://report.cybertip.org or call 1-800-843-5678. If you’re in France: you may directly contact PHAROS: https://www.internet-signalement.gouv.fr/PortailWeb/planets/Accueil!input.action If you are in the ROW: You may refer to the following website in order to be redirected to your local entity – INHOPE is an active and collaborative global network of hotlines, dealing with illegal content online and committed to stamping out child sexual abuse from the Internet : Visit http://www.inhope.org/gns/home.aspx Don’t share or download the content. It can be a crime to share or send messages that include images and/or videos of children being sexually abused and exploited. You won’t be asked to provide a copy of the content in any report. III. Age Restricted Content We may add an age-restriction to content that includes any of the following:
Harmful or dangerous acts that minors could imitate: Content containing adults participating in dangerous activities that could be easily imitated by minors. Note: We may allow this content without restriction if the content itself warns minors not to perform the dangerous activities and explains the need for professional adult supervision. Adult themes in family content: Content meant for adult audiences, but which could easily be confused with family content. This includes cartoons that contain adult themes such as violence, sex, death, etc. Remember you can age restrict your content upon upload if it’s intended for mature audiences. Vulgar language: Some language is not appropriate for younger audiences. Content using sexually explicit language or excessive profanity may lead to age-restriction Other sexual content or content involving nudity: We may also age-restrict content if it includes other content involving nudity or other sexual content but doesn’t depict anything described above. Please note this is not a complete list; do not post content if you think it might violate this policy.
Please note that this policy applies and is not limited to videos, video descriptions, live streams, and any other Eidok product or feature.
IV. If you are under 18 If you are under 18, you may only use the Eidok Service if:
If you comply with the above two requirements, and you regularly use Eidok, we ask you to carefully read the following information and advice
Tell your parents if you create an account on Eidok. It is important to have their agreement, and to explain to them how you plan on using the site (to upload or share videos, create playlists, etc.); Never give your personal information to other users. If your videos contain personal information or you do not want them to be public, consider making these videos “private” by using the “visibility” option in the video edit page. You can share private videos only with people you want to; and Don’t hesitate to report any shocking content or behavior by using the “Report” button beneath each video. You can also contact the Eidok Support team at any time by using the contact form, accessed via the footer. If you do NOT comply with the above two requirements, you must obtain parental consent from your parent(s) or legal guardian(s) before creating an account and accessing the Eidok Service. When you access the Eidok Service, we may collect information about you which may be considered personal information, hence if you do not meet the Minimum Age Required you cannot give us consent to collect such information, instead such consent must be given by your parent(s) or legal guardian(s).
If we discover that you are using the Eidok Service and do not meet the Minimum Age Required and are doing so without parental/legal guardian consent, we will promptly delete your account and any data we may have collected associated with it.
