Use policy

GENERAL GUIDELINES

We believe in the traditional notion of community as people who help and look out for each other. We hope that YUTU members embrace the concept of being inclusive and supportive of each other. We never share your info with advertisers. In turn, we expect users to:

  • Respect fellow users, which includes not using their contact details for marketing or professional purposes.
  • Be honest, authentic, trustworthy and straightforward in all actions.
  • Maintain the privacy and security of the Platform (“Platform” henceforth comprising the YuTU apps and website).
  • Don’t use the Platform for malicious or dishonest practices or behavior.

We track and act upon all user reports and there is a report button on the app for this purpose.


SPECIFIC MEMBERSHIP RESPONSIBILITIES 

YUTU is an online community of users from many cultures and countries. It offers the opportunity to  build a friendly, intimate and secure real life community where users can connect and in some cases can obtain support, encouragement, and helpful information. All users deserve respect and support. YuTU expects you to participate on its social network with this in mind. In doing so, we ask that you maintain a considerate, safe and respectful atmosphere. Differing opinions are expected from time to time. However, disagreements must be handled with courtesy and respect for other users and content in breach of these guidelines will be removed from the platform. 

If any user discovers another behaving in any way that contravenes the guidelines and responsibilities then we ask that they report this behaviour to the YuTU team immediately either through the app or the website.
