Brut is convinced that information is no longer produced and consumed vertically. Today, it is distributed in a circular fashion, shared and constructed with several voices. With this in mind, Brut. has decided to launch the Brut Service: an application for conversations, content and events, recorded or live. The Brut Service is a tool whose technology will foster discussion and action in a world where change has become a necessity.
Our commitment to providing a space for people to communicate is taken very seriously at Brut, and we will take all necessary precautions and measures to avoid abuse of the Brut Service.
This policy describes our philosophy for understanding how to use our tools and our Brut Service properly. This policy may change as a result of feedback from the community and experts to ensure the safety and inclusiveness of all. Violation of these rules may result in the deletion of user accounts, content, account deactivation or other restrictions.
Principles of the Brut. Service
The Brut. Service is designed to be a healthy place to interact where everyone feels like they belong. There are a number of principles that help us to ensure that this is a genuine environment for discussion and entertainment:
We want the Brut community to be inclusive and allow for free expression without fear of abuse. As such, we do not tolerate community members being humiliated, intimidated through hate speech, violence, harassment or attack related to ethnicity, national origin, disability, religion, caste, sexual orientation, gender identity, sex or medical condition. Any content that may cause psychological distress will be banned from our Service.
Creators are free to mention or deconstruct important issues such as human rights abuses or acts of terrorism as long as it is done to challenge or raise awareness in the Brut community. In these cases, be sure to make your intentions clear.
In order to make the Brut Service a healthy and caring space for quality debate and discussion, anonymity is not allowed within the Brut Service. We want everyone to know who they are talking to in the lives or in the chat. Each user must provide his or her first and last name when registering for live content on the Brut Service. Brut reserves the right to verify this information and to exclude users who do not respect this principle.
Protect yourself against false information
The Brut Service is a place to exchange information, knowledge and experience. We do not intend to restrict freedom of expression, but we will endeavour to combat content that promotes false information. We encourage our users to inquire when in doubt about content and to report suspicious content to us so that we can act quickly.
The Brut. Service is built on the responsibility of everyone
The Brut. Service is driven by both content creators and users who can engage with these creators. We rely on everyone being aware of their responsibility when speaking on the Service and we will be uncompromising in the face of abusive behaviour. In particular:
No sexual content.
In order not to offend the sensitivities of some people in our community, we wish to limit the posting of nudity and sexual activity. As such, we may have to suspend and revoke access to deliver content to a creator sharing explicit sexual content. We understand that some nudity may be shared for certain reasons, including protest, cause awareness, or educational purposes. In these cases, please be sure to make your intentions clear. There will be zero tolerance for creators sharing sexually explicit content involving minors or images of child pornography.
Creators are prohibited from allowing or encouraging sexual encounters or commercial sexual services between adults, such as prostitution or escort services.
No incitement to crime and deceptive behaviour
Brut will not tolerate the publication of content that promises, encourages, enables or authorizes illegal activities including, but not limited to, those related to bribery, embezzlement and money laundering.
Endangering one's own life or physical integrity is strictly forbidden on the Brut. Service (suicide threats, use of illegal substances, intentional physical trauma, dangerous behaviour etc.). Self-destructive behaviour in the guise of jokes or entertainment is not tolerated as it may be harmful to the mental or physical health of oneself or others.
Reporting offensive content
In order to protect the members of the Brut community, we invite the users of the Service and creators of content to be active in the moderation of the content present on the Service. Thus, we encourage you to report content and in particular, lives that seem to violate the rules. You can "flag" each person who speaks or comments that seem inappropriate on each content and live. These reports are forwarded to us and we can then take action to resolve any problems.
The security of our users includes the security of their personal information and accounts. As such, any attempts to gather information about users through misuse of our Service are prohibited.
Deciding to circumvent suspensions by creating new profiles or false identities is prohibited. If we notice any abuse, we may decide to extend the suspension period or even ban the person permanently from the Service.
Thank you for helping us create a healthy community of discussion and exchange by participating in the creation of a Brut. Service that reflects you.
