As a space where stars and fans can share everyday life and empathize with each other anywhere in the world, V LIVE strives to build a global community where people can freely communicate. We are also making utmost efforts to maintain a more enjoyable and safe environment by reflecting the value of V LIVE.
V LIVE aims to create an environment for positive interaction between stars and fans while respecting diversity and freedom of expression. We also respect the cultural norms of users from countries around the world. With this value of V LIVE, we would like to guide you through the essentials of our Community Guide, which applies to all content shared on V LIVE.
Based on our Community Guide, we value and carefully deal with freely written posts in various forms. However, we inform you that harmful content and accounts that violate the Community Guide may be restricted in order to maintain a space of trust and consideration.
At V LIVE, we will always do our best to provide a space where both stars and fans can communicate safely and happily. We will continuously revise and improve the Community Guide so as to reflect the necessary principles.
We ask for your understanding and cooperation so that everyone can have a pleasant experience on V LIVE.
The artists create their channels on V LIVE, and their fans join there. So each channel becomes a precious space where the fans could cheer for their stars. The contents that the artists have created or reacted to could be protected separately. Likewise, the contents that most of the fans and artists cannot enjoy could be restricted to some users according to the channel operators' or other members' opinions. Contents mentioning other artists or subjects unrelated to the artists are typical examples. Please keep this special purpose of V LIVE in mind and fill the V LIVE channels with enjoyable stories that artists and their fans could share.
At V LIVE, we strive to stay honest and earn your trust. We do not allow any acts that may deceive or mislead users, such as spam, dissemination of false information, and manipulation of data. V LIVE has a feature that prevents abnormal data from being reflected. To prevent abusing the number of views, repeated playbacks within a short time may not be counted. We have continuously developed and applied countermeasures against abnormal data. We also prohibit the manipulation of media such as images, audio, and videos, as well as the distribution of false information. This allows other users to use V LIVE services normally and makes the community a trusted space.
V LIVE ensures that your personal rights are respected and that each content is protected under the right of the right holder. We do not allow the posting or distribution of content that infringes on personal rights such as reputation, portrait rights, and privacy, as well as intellectual property rights including copyright and trademark rights. You may be liable if you arbitrarily make a separate video file using the work of a third party, post it on the Internet, provide it to a third party, or conduct any other copyright infringement. V LIVE has a channel for reporting content that infringes on personal rights or intellectual property rights and suspends such posting and takes other necessary measures for reported content.
As a space that teenagers around the world freely enjoy with the stars they love, V LIVE is committed to protecting youth. Posts that received multiple reports are automatically restricted to prevent juveniles from being exposed to harmful information. We aim to quickly detect and block harmful content through a real-time filtering system and a 24-hour monitoring system. Any pornographic content found to feature underage children will be immediately blocked without prior notice. We will continue to do our best to make V LIVE a space that can be used safely by youth around the world with stars.
In a shared community, consideration for others is paramount and everyone should be protected from indiscreet acts of exclusion. Content that threatens stars, individuals, or groups is not allowed, nor is continuous or malicious insults against them. V LIVE defines mentioning inferiority to race, ethnicity, nationality, religion, gender, sex, sexual orientation, disability, disease, etc., or acts that encourage exclusion of specific people as hateful conduct. We deeply understand the pain that offensive, humiliating, bullying, or harassing content could cause. If such an act or hateful conduct is found, the related content can be deleted, and service activities may be restricted.
To create a safe and comfortable environment for everyone, content that causes severe displeasure, sexual shame, or fear to other users is not allowed on V LIVE. We prohibit content that contains excessive revealing of body parts, an explicit portrayal of genitals or sexual activity, direct expression of abnormal sexual behaviors, or pornography. We also do not allow content that is overly violent and promotes or glorifies violence. We take strict action against content that glorifies, solicits, and promotes criminal acts, or contains illegal items such as weapons and drugs.
For a safe user experience, we may immediately limit the exposure of any disturbing content that violates our policy. Content designated as media harmful to juveniles or obscene or illegal content may be restricted without prior notice. If a physical threat to others or a direct threat to public safety is suspected, we will take appropriate measures such as deleting the content, deactivating the account, and cooperating with judicial authorities.
V LIVE will make every effort to strictly control inappropriate content, but your participation is also important to create a safer space. A report feature is provided throughout V LIVE, so if you find disturbing content or users, please notify V LIVE directly via the report feature. Reports are immediately received through the V LIVE service, and we are taking measures such as automatically hiding the content of the accumulated reports according to the internal policy to protect you from content that is suspected of being harmful. However, please note that not all reported content is restricted simply for being reported and that whether to impose disciplinary action and the method of disciplinary action are determined according to our detailed policies. We will carefully review and handle reported content and do our best to minimize any discomfort.
If you violate the Community Guide or act in violation of related laws and regulations, you may be temporarily or permanently restricted from using our service. Content which violation has been confirmed or that has been reported more than a certain number of times is automatically temporarily deleted, and users who have received more than a certain number of reports are automatically restricted from creating content for a designated period of time. The user who created such content may have these measures lifted by clarifying that the content does not constitute a violation.
