Adult Content

Adult Content

Ads must not contain adult content. This includes adult and child nudity, adult porn videos, child porn videos, human trafficking videos and images depictions of people in explicit or suggestive positions, or activities that are overly suggestive or sexually provocative.

Ads that assert or imply the ability to meet someone, connect with them, or view content created by them must not be positioned in a sexual way or with an intent to sexualize the person featured in the ad.

Overview

This policy provides additional protection for people who use our technologies beyond what is prohibited in the Community Standards.
Advertisers can’t run ads that contain adult content, and child porn is a major crime, and it violates our platform policies which will be reported to authorities. As a global company we consider the wide array of people with certain morals from different cultures and countries who see ads on our platform, and their varying cultural sensitivities around adult content. We understand that nudity can be shared for a variety of reasons and make certain exceptions in ads related to art and health.

Protreon Guidelines

Ads can't:
•Depict nudity where otherwise permitted by the Community Standards or implied nudity, such as removing clothes.

•Depict excessively visible skin, even if not explicitly sexual in nature.

•Contain images focused on individual body parts, even if not explicitly sexual in nature.

•Promote dating services where the focus of the ad is on a partly clothed model
Ads can:
•Show photographs of paintings, sculptures, and other art that depicts nude figures, as long as there’s no explicit focus on nude private body parts or sexual acts.

•Include focus on private body parts in the context of breastfeeding or breast health, as long as there’s no explicit nudity.

•Depict nipples in the context of breast health, as long as the ad creatives are illustrations or medical diagrams and target people 18 years or older.

Policy Rationale
We restrict the display of nudity or sexual activity because some people in our community may be sensitive to this type of content. Additionally, we default to removing sexual imagery to prevent the sharing of non-consensual or underage content. Restrictions on the display of sexual activity also apply to digitally created content unless it is posted for educational, humorous, or satirical purposes.
Our nudity policies have become more nuanced over time. We understand that nudity can be shared for a variety of reasons, including as a form of protest, to raise awareness about a cause, or for educational or medical reasons.
Where such intent is clear, we make allowances for the content. For example, while we restrict some images of female breasts that include the nipple, we allow other images, including those depicting acts of protest, women actively engaged in breast-feeding and photos of post-mastectomy scarring. For images depicting visible genitalia or the anus in the context of birth and after-birth moments or health-related situations we include a warning label so that people are aware that the content may be sensitive. We also allow photographs of paintings, sculptures, and other art that depicts nude figures.

Post Protreon does not allowed:

•Imagery of real nude adults if it depicts:

•Visible genitalia except in the context of birth giving and after-birth moments or if there is medical or health context situations (for example, gender confirmation surgery, examination for cancer or disease prevention/assessment).
•Visible anus and/or fully nude close-ups of buttocks unless photoshopped on a public figure.

•Uncovered female nipples except in the context of breastfeeding, birth giving and after-birth moments, medical or health context (for example, post-mastectomy, breast cancer awareness or gender confirmation surgery) or an act of protest.

•Imagery of sexual activity, including:

•Explicit sexual activity and stimulation

•Implied sexual activity and stimulation, except in cases of medical or health context, advertisements, and recognized fictional images or with indicators of fiction:

Content rights & Infringement policy

Creators should only upload videos that they have made or that they're authorized to use. That means they should not upload videos they didn't make or use content in their videos that someone else owns the copyright to, such as music tracks, snippets of copyrighted programs, or videos made by other users, without necessary authorizations.
In the US, the most widely known copyright exception is fair use. When deciding whether a use is fair, courts look at four factors: the purpose and character of the use, the nature of the copyrighted work, the amount and substantiality of the portion used in relation to the copyrighted work, and the effect of the use upon the potential market for or value of the copyrighted work. Some activities that may qualify as fair use include criticism, commentary, and news reporting. Fair use aims to promote freedom of expression.

In some civil law countries, including many in the EU, more limited exceptions are recognized where the reuse must fall within specific categories, instead of having factors that are weighed. The categories set out in Article 17 of the EU Digital Single Market copyright directive are quotation, criticism, review, caricature, parody, and pastiche. These words have their usual meaning in everyday language but are also enacted into law by each member state and interpreted by both national courts and the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU). It is also important to consider the context of the use, and the purpose of such copyright exceptions, one of which is to balance creators’ freedom of expression, and rightsholders' copyright.

In some countries, such as Canada, the UK, and Australia, a hybrid concept of fair dealing exists. Courts weigh factors similar to those in fair use, but reuses must fall within specific categories. These categories include quotation (general quotation, and quotation for the purposes of criticism, review, or news reporting), caricature, parody, and pastiche.

Most countries in the world have signed an international treaty known as the Berne Convention, which allows reuses in specific categories, including for quotation, and news reporting.

While there are some similarities regarding copyright exceptions across the globe, there are still considerable differences between the laws of each country. There’s no one-size-fits-all answer as to whether a reuse falls within copyright exceptions, and the courts decide the applicability of such exceptions on a case-by-case basis.

Protecting Materials

Protreon is always trying to help Content creators out in whatever ways we can. We are seeking to solve the very real issue of getting Content creators paid. We have chosen to do that in the form of membership business solutions. Protreon powers Content creators to take ownership of their creations as well as taking ownership of the relationship with their fans.

This means that despite all that Protreon would like to do for you, the content creator, there are certain limitations of what we can do on your behalf. Copyright law gives copyright owners complete and utter monopoly power over their creative works. Enforcement of your sole right to copy, display, perform, distribute, or create derivative works lies entirely with you.
If your works are infringed on Protreon’s platform, we will work to remove it. If a content creator is using Protreon to fund an online piracy site, we will remove that account. If a Protreon uses Protreon to its exact specification, but then chooses to upload your works elsewhere on the web, unfortunately, Protreon has no ability to control or even go after that site to have your works removed. The right to bring a notice and takedown is exclusively reserved to the copyright owner.

The unfortunate reality is that we do not have legal standing to bring suit against these piracy websites and even if we did, all they would have to do is move their servers outside of the jurisdiction. We do not keep content creators or Protreon informed as we pursue these options because there is no way of informing only the good actors (meaning we risk tipping our hand to these piracy websites if they know the ways in which we are seeking to go after them).
