Acceptable Use Policy

This policy covers acceptable use both by all users of Grabyo Services as defined in our Terms of Service. Live streams are hard to monitor, so we rely on you to help us enforce acceptable usage.

Don't abuse the site. Every new feature on Grabyo involves a certain level of trust. We trust you to be responsible and millions of users respect that trust, so please be one of them.

We Review Content Flagged As Inappropriate

Okay, this one is more about us than you. When content gets flagged as inappropriate, we review the content to determine whether it violates our Terms of Use – flagged videos are not automatically taken down by the system. If we remove your content after reviewing it, you can assume that we removed it deliberately and you should take our warning notification seriously. Read our Terms of Service and try to see it from our perspective. If you find other content on Grabyo with the same violations, please flag them so we can review them as well.

Don't Cross the Line

Here are some common-sense rules that will help you steer clear of trouble:

  • Grabyo is not for pornography or sexually explicit content. If this describes your content, don't edit, stream or publish it using Grabyo. In addition, please be advised that we work closely with law enforcement agencies.
  • Don't distribute content that includes any forms of abuse to humans or any other animals, this includes animal abuse, drug abuse or bomb making.
  • Graphic or gratuitous violence is not allowed. If your show shows someone getting hurt, attacked or humiliated, don't use Grabyo.
  • Respect copyright. Only use Grabyo for content that you have created yourself or that you are authorised to use. Don't use content to which someone else owns the copyright, such as music tracks, snippets of copyrighted programmes or videos made by other users, or any other media rights owned by a third party without the requisite authorisations.
  • We encourage free speech and defend everyone's right to express unpopular points of view. But we do not permit hate speech (speech which attacks or demeans a group based on race or ethnic origin, religion, disability, gender, age, veteran status and sexual orientation/gender identity).
  • There is zero tolerance of predatory behaviour, stalking, threats, harassment, invading privacy or the revealing of other members' personal information. Anyone caught doing these things may be permanently banned from Grabyo.
  • Everyone hates spam. Do not create misleading descriptions, tags, titles or thumbnails in order to increase views. It's not OK to post large amounts of untargeted, unwanted or repetitive content.

Please take these rules seriously and take them to heart. Don't try to look for loopholes or try to lawyer your way around them—just understand them and try to respect the spirit in which they were created. Violations of the Terms of Use may result in a warning notification or termination of your account. If your account is terminated you are prohibited from creating any new accounts. Grabyo reserves the right to suspend access to the Services at any time and for any reason.
