Things not to do
Here’s the deal: We like to give second chances. However, when we discover you stepping across any of the lines listed below, we will take action, which may mean deleting your account with or without warning.
- Don’t upload non-360° (non-VR) content (photos, videos, renderings). If you do, your account will be moderated and possibly deleted by VRapp.co staff.
- Don’t upload anything that isn’t yours.
- This includes other people’s photos, video, sound recordings, and/or stuff you’ve copied or collected from around the Internet. Accounts that consist primarily of such collections may be deleted at any time.
- Don’t forget the children or your grandmother.
- If you would hesitate to show your VR content to a child, your family, or a stranger on the street, don’t use that content. If you don’t, your account will be moderated and possibly deleted by VRapp.co Service staff.
- Don’t upload content that is illegal or prohibited. If we find you doing that, your account will be deleted and we’ll take appropriate action, which may include reporting you to the authorities.
- Don’t vent your frustrations, rant, or bore the brains out of other members.
VRapp.co is not a venue for you to harass, abuse, spam, impersonate, or intimidate others. If we receive a valid complaint about your conduct, we’ll send you a warning or delete your account.
- If you show suspicious upload behavior that impacts the stability of our servers, we will warn you or delete your account.
- The VRapp.co Service is a virtual reality community for people to share, explore and discover new surroundings. If you engage in commercial activity elsewhere on the Internet or in the real world, you’re still welcome on VRapp.co, as long as you are a VRapp.co Service member in good standing. All other unauthorized commercial activity is prohibited. We don’t tolerate spam, deceptive tagging or other abusive means to generate revenue and traffic.
Copyright Infringement. If you see content that you’ve created in another member’s VR tours, don’t panic. This is probably just a misunderstanding and not malicious. A good step is to contact our VRapp.co Service staff and we will ask them politely to remove it.
If you don’t feel that you can abide by our Community Guidelines as outlined above, maybe VRapp.co isn’t for you. We’ve crafted these guidelines to ensure that everyone within the VRapp.co community has a good time.
If you ever have any questions or comments, we’d love to hear from you. Please feel free to drop us a line through email.
