Acceptable Use Policy

Lifetricks is a place to find and share clever tricks. To make sure people feel safe and comfortable here, we need everyone to agree to and follow these rules.

Different people may have different opinions on how we should enforce these rules, so we’ve included examples. If there’s a question about whether something’s appropriate for our community, we’ll err on the side of caution and take it down.

You aren’t allowed to post anything that:

  • Is sexually explicit or pornographic, exploits or presents minors in a sexual way, or promotes adult sexual services
  • Creates a genuine risk of physical injury or property damage, credibly threatens people or public safety, or organises, encourages or celebrates harm
  • Promotes self-harm, eating disorders or hard drug abuse
  • Attacks, bullies or harasses non-public people
  • Includes hate speech
  • Is gratuitously violent or gory
  • Infringes anyone's intellectual property, privacy or other rights
  • Is fraudulent or deceptive
  • Is someone else's personal information or requests a minor's personal information
  • Contains any information or content that’s illegal

You also aren’t allowed to:

  • Use meta tags, hidden text or metadata with our trademark, logo, URL or product name without our written consent.
  • Use LifeTricks user information to forge any TCP/IP packet header or any part of the header information in any email or newsgroup posting, or in any way use LifeTricks to send altered source-identifying information
  • Try to interfere with any LifeTricks user, host or network, for example by sending a virus, overloading, spamming or mail-bombing
  • Collect or store personally identifiable information from LifeTricks or its users without their permission
  • Impersonate or misrepresent your affiliation with any person or entity
  • Do anything that violates applicable laws or regulations
  • Share your password, let anyone access your account or do anything that might put your account at risk
  • Sell your username or otherwise transfer it for compensation
  • Create or show ads that look like or could be confused with LifeTricks content (for example, embedding LifeTricks actions such as, follow or unfollow in your ads)
  • Directly compensate users for voting, following or unfollowing
  • Encourage or help anyone do any of the things on this list

If you run a contest or other type of promotion on LifeTricks, please don’t:

  • Suggest that LifeTricks sponsors or endorses you or the promotion
  • Encourage spammy behaviour such as asking participants to comment

We may remove anything for any reason, including if we think it goes against any of these rules or our Terms of Service.
