V LIVE is a space where stars and fans can share everyday life and empathize with each other anywhere in the world. We are striving to build a global community where people can freely communicate. We are also doing our best to keep this community safe and enjoyable by reflecting on our values.
V LIVE aims to create an environment for positive interaction between stars and fans. We respect diversity and support free expression. We also take the cultural norms of countries around the globe into account. We’d like to guide you on our Community Guide reflecting the essentials of our values, and those apply to all content shared on V LIVE.
We will value and carefully deal with the various types of posts you freely create based on the Community Guide. However, in order to maintain a space based on trust and consideration, we need to inform you that harmful content and accounts that violate the Community Guide may be restricted. V LIVE will always do its best to provide a space where both stars and fans can communicate safely and happily. In the future, we will continue to revise and improve the Community Guide and strive to include the necessary principles.
We’d like to ask for your understanding and cooperation so that everyone can have a pleasant experience on V LIVE.
V LIVE always tries to earn your trust in an honest way. We do not allow spam, distribution of false information, manipulation of data, etc. to deceive or mislead users. V LIVE has a feature that prevents abnormal data from being reflected in, and V LIVE may not be reflected if you repeatedly watch the same video within a short time to prevent from abusing the number of play. We are also continually researching and applying countermeasures for abnormal data. Furthermore, the manipulation of media such as images, audio, and videos, as well as the distribution of false information are prohibited. This allows other users to use the V LIVE service normally and makes the community a reliable space.
V LIVE makes an effort to ensure that your moral rights are respected and that each piece of content is protected under the justified rights of the rights holder. We do not allow the posting or distribution of content that infringes on moral rights such as reputation, portrait rights, and privacy, and intellectual property rights such as copyright and trademark rights. You may be held legally responsible if you produce a separate video file of the work of a third party at will, post it on the Internet, provide it to a third party, or otherwise infringe on copyright. V LIVE has a reporting channel for content that infringes on moral rights or intellectual property rights, and we suspend or take other necessary measures against reported content.
V LIVE is a space that can be used freely by youths around the world who co-exist with stars, so we’re doing our best to protect them. We prevent the risk of exposure of harmful information to youths by taking measures to automatically restrict access to posts with accumulated reports. We aim to quickly detect and block harmful content via a real-time filtering system and a 24-hour monitoring system. If obscene content that supposedly contains a minor is found, it will be immediately blocked without prior notice. V LIVE will continue to do its best to create a space that can be used safely by youths around the world with our stars.
As V LIVE is a space where everyone comes together, consideration for others is paramount, and everyone should be protected from thoughtless exclusion. We do not allow content that threatens stars, individuals, or groups and we also strictly prohibit persistent or malicious insults against them. V LIVE defines activities that mention inferiority regarding race, ethnicity, nationality, religion, gender, sex, sexual orientation, disability, illness, etc., or that activities induce exclusion from related classes as offensive acts. We also deeply understand the pain of content that includes shame, humiliation, bullying, or harassment. If such behavior or offensive act is found, the content in question may be deleted, and service activity may be restricted.
For an environment that anyone can use safely and comfortably, content that causes severe discomfort, sexual shame, or fear in other users is not allowed on V LIVE. Content such as excessive exposure, an explicit portrayal of genitals or sexual intercourse, naked expression of abnormal sexual intercourse, or obscene material is prohibited. We allow neither content that is overly violent nor that promotes or glamorizes violence. Content that glamorizes, encourages, or promotes criminal activities, as well as illegal items such as weapons and drugs, is dealt with them firmly. To create a safe user environment, if uncomfortable content that violates our policy is found, the content in question may be restricted immediately. With regard to content designated as media harmful to juveniles or content that is obscene or illegal, the content in question may be restricted without prior notice. If it is suspected that there is a physical threat to others or a direct threat to public safety, we will take appropriate measures such as deleting the content, deactivating the account, and/or cooperating with judicial authorities.
V LIVE will make every effort to thoroughly manage inappropriate content, but your participation is important to create a safer space. A report feature is provided throughout V LIVE, so if you find content or users that cause offending, please notify V LIVE directly via this report feature. Reported content is immediately received by the V LIVE service, and if a certain number of reports are received, the content in question is automatically hidden to protect you from suspected harmful material. However, please note that not all reported targets are restricted simply for being reported and whether they will be penalized or not (as well as the method of penalty) is determined according to detailed policies. We will carefully review and process the reported content and do our best to minimize any discomfort.
We’d like to inform you that if you violate the Community Guide or act in violation of relevant laws and regulations, your use of the service may be temporarily or permanently restricted. Content that has been confirmed to constitute a violation or has been reported more than a certain number of times is automatically temporarily deleted, and users who have been reported more than a certain number of times will automatically be banned from creating content for a certain period of time. The user who created the content may have these measures removed by clarifying that the content does not constitute a violation.
