What the Lube Studio Community stands For
We are a family based entity at Lube Studio, and encourage ourselves to treat each other with respect like we would in our home. We empower business and users to showcase their very best of goods and services for the wider benefit of all. People come to Lube Studio to reconnect with their brands in this unique way while others will connect with friends and causes. There will be conversations on Lube Studio that ultimately reflect the diversity of a growing community people and businesses.
We want people to feel safe when using Lube Studio. For that reason, we've developed a set of Community Standards, outlined below. These policies will help you understand what type of sharing is allowed on Lube Studio, and what type of content may be reported to us and removed. Because of the diversity of our global community, please bear in mind that something that may be disagreeable or disturbing to you may not violate our Community Standards.
We remove content, disable accounts and work with law enforcement when we believe that there is a genuine risk of physical harm or direct threats to public safety. Learn more about how Lube Studio handles abusive content.
We carefully review reports of threatening language to identify serious threats of harm to public and personal safety. We remove credible threats of physical harm to individuals. We also remove specific threats of theft, vandalism or other financial harm.
We may consider things such as a person's physical location or public visibility in determining whether a threat is credible. We may assume credibility of any threats to people living in violent and unstable regions.
We don't allow the promotion of self-injury or suicide. We work with organisations around the world to provide assistance for people in distress. We prohibit content that promotes or encourages suicide or any other type of self-injury, including self-mutilation and eating disorders. We don't consider body modification to be self-injury. We also remove any content that identifies victims or survivors of self-injury or suicide and targets them for attack, either seriously or humorously. People can, however, share information about self-injury and suicide that does not promote these things.
Entities that Present Danger
We don't allow any organisations that are engaged in the following to have a presence on Lube Studio:
• terrorist activity, or
• organised criminal activity.
We also remove content that expresses support for groups that are involved in the violent or criminal behaviour mentioned above. Supporting or praising leaders of those same organisations, or condoning their violent activities, is not allowed.
We welcome broad discussion and social commentary on these general subjects, but ask that people show sensitivity towards victims of violence and discrimination.
Bullying and Harassment
We don’t tolerate bullying or harassment. We allow you to speak freely on matters and people of public interest, but remove content that appears to purposefully target private individuals with the intention of degrading or shaming them. This content includes, but is not limited to:
• Pages that identify and shame private individuals,
• images altered to degrade private individuals,
• photos or videos of physical bullying posted to shame the victim,
• sharing personal information to blackmail or harass people and
• repeatedly targeting other people with unwanted friend requests or messages.
We define private individuals as people who have neither gained news attention nor the interest of the public, by way of their actions or public profession.
We prohibit the use of Lube Studio to facilitate or organise criminal activity that causes physical harm to people, businesses or animals, or financial damage to people or businesses. We work with the police when we believe that there is a genuine risk of physical harm or direct threats to public safety.
We also prohibit you from celebrating any crimes that you've committed. We do, however, allow people to debate or advocate for the legality of criminal activities, as well as address them in a humorous or satirical way.
Sexual Violence and Exploitation
We remove content that threatens or promotes sexual violence or exploitation. This includes the sexual exploitation of minors and sexual assault. To protect victims and survivors, we also remove photographs or videos depicting incidents of sexual violence and images shared in revenge or without permission from the people in the images.
Our definition of sexual exploitation includes solicitation of sexual material, any sexual content involving minors, threats to share intimate images and offers of sexual services. Where appropriate, we refer this content to law enforcement. Offers of sexual services include prostitution, escort services, sexual massages and filmed sexual activity.
We prohibit any attempts by unauthorised dealers to purchase, sell or trade prescription drugs and marijuana. If you post an offer to purchase or sell firearms, alcohol, tobacco or adult products, we expect you to comply with all applicable laws and carefully consider the audience for that content. We do not allow you to use Lube Studio's payment tools to sell or purchase regulated goods on our platform.
