A few ground rules to keep travadda.com safe and fun for everyone:

Respect the travadda.com community

We're not asking for the kind of respect reserved for nuns, the elderly, and brain surgeons. Just don't abuse the site. Every cool, new community feature on travadda.com involves a certain level of trust. We trust you to be responsible, and millions of users respect that trust. Please be one of them.

Don't cross the line

Here are some common-sense rules that'll help you steer clear of trouble. Please take these rules seriously and take them to heart. Don't try to look for loopholes or try to lawyer your way around the guidelines—just understand them and try to respect the spirit in which they were created.

Nudity and sexual content

If video, photos, blogs, comments and messages etc., are intended to be sexually provocative; it is less likely to be acceptable for travadda.com.

What is and isn’t allowed

Sexually explicit content like pornography is not allowed as per the Information Technology Act, 2000 (Amended in 2008). Videos, photos, blogs, comments and messages etc., containing fetish content will be removed or age-restricted depending on the severity of the act in question. In most cases, violent, graphic, or humiliating fetishes are not allowed to be shown on travadda.com.

A video, photos, blogs, comments and messages etc., that contains nudity or other sexual content may be allowed if the primary purpose is educational, documentary, publication of news, scientific, or artistic, and it isn’t gratuitously graphic. For example, a documentary or research on breast cancer would be appropriate, but posting clips out of context from the same documentary might not be. Remember that providing context in the title and description will help us and your viewers determine the primary purpose of the video.

Age-restricted content

In cases where videos, photos, blogs, comments and messages etc., do not cross the line, but still contain sexual content, we may apply an age-restriction so that only viewers over a certain age can view or comment on the content.

Videos, photos, blogs, comments and messages etc., containing nudity or dramatized sexual conduct may be age-restricted when the context is appropriately educational, documentary, scientific or artistic. Videos featuring individuals in minimal or revealing clothing may also be age-restricted if they're intended to be sexually provocative, but don't show explicit content.

Harmful or dangerous content

While it might not seem fair to say you can’t show or upload something because of what viewers might do in response, we draw the line at content that intends to incite violence or encourage dangerous or illegal activities that have an inherent risk of serious physical harm or death.

Videos, comments, blogs that we consider encouraging dangerous or illegal activities include instructional bomb making, provoking terrorism, hard drug use, or other acts where serious injury may result. A video that depicts dangerous acts may be allowed if the primary purpose is educational, research, documentary, scientific, or artistic, and it isn’t gratuitously graphic. Videos, photos, blogs, comments, messages dangerous content, hateful content, threats, spam, misleading metadata, or scams.etc. that incite others to commit acts of violence are strictly prohibited from travadda.com. If your video asks others to commit an act of violence or threatens people with serious acts of violence, it will be removed from the site.

We are very sensitive to any harmful or dangerous content that involves minors. If your video shows a minor participating in a harmful or dangerous activity, do not post it. In the interest of protecting minors, we may age-restrict videos containing adults participating in activities that have a high risk of injury or death.

Violent or graphic content

Real depictions of graphic or violent content

Increasingly, travadda.com is becoming an outlet for citizen journalists, professionals, organisations, documentarians and other users to publish accounts of what is happening in their daily lives. It is inevitable that some of these videos will contain content that is violent or graphic in nature.If the violence shown in your video is particularly graphic, please make sure to post as much information as possible in the title to help viewers understand what they are seeing. Providing documentary or educational context can help the viewer, and our reviewers, understand why they may be seeing the disturbing content.It’s not okay to post violent or gory content that’s primarily intended to be shocking, sensational or disrespectful. If a video is particularly graphic or disturbing, it should be balanced with additional context and information.

Content Related to Terrorism

Travadda.com strictly prohibits content intended to recruit for terrorist organizations, incite violence, celebrate terrorist attacks or otherwise promote acts of terrorism. We also do not permit foreign terrorist organizations to use travadda.com. Content intended to document events connected to terrorist acts or news reporting on terrorist activities may be allowed on the site with sufficient context and intent. However, graphic or controversial footage may be subject to age-restrictions or a warning screen.

Hate speech

We encourage free speech (constitutional right) and try to defend your right to express unpopular points of view, but we don't permit hate speech.

Hate speech refers to content that promotes violence or hatred against individuals or groups based on certain attributes, such as:

  • Race or ethnic origin
  • Religion
  • Disability
  • Gender
  • Age
  • Veteran status
  • Sexual orientation/gender identity

There is a fine line between what is and what is not considered to be hate speech. For instance, it is generally okay to criticize a nation-state, but not okay to post malicious hateful comments about a group of people solely based on their ethnicity.

Reporting hateful content

Keep in mind that not everything that’s mean or insulting is hate speech. If you’re upset by content that a specific person is posting, you may wish to consider blocking the user.

However, if you feel that content violates our hate speech policy, report it to travadda.com via email or grievance officer.

Threats

The travadda.com community is important to us and we want to see it continue to display. To ensure that this is possible, content that makes threats of serious physical harm against a specific individual or defined group of individuals will be removed. People who threaten others may receive a strike on their account and their account may be terminated.
