Nudity or sexual content

Learn from a Local is not for pornography or sexually explicit content. No one wants or needs to see that. If this describes your video, do not post it on Learn from a Local. Be advised that we work closely with law enforcement and we report child exploitation. 

Language

Profanity should not be used on Learn from a Local, in video content or text. Please be professional and respectful in the language used. This includes racially insensitive, prejudiced or offensive phrases or words.

Hateful content

We do not support the inclusion of any content that promotes or condones violence against individuals or groups based on race, ethnicity, religion, disability, gender, age, nationality, veteran status, caste or sexual orientation — or content that incites hatred on the basis of these core characteristics. 

Spam and misleading information

No one likes spam. Avoid including descriptions, tags, titles or thumbnails that may be misleading. 

Harmful or dangerous content

Don’t post videos that encourage others to engage in activity that might cause harm to themselves or others. Videos showing harmful or dangerous acts may be removed depending on severity. 

Violent or graphic content

Please refrain from submitting content that is violent, gory or intended to shock audiences. If posting graphic content in an educational context, please be mindful to provide enough information to help people understand what’s going on in the video. Don’t encourage others to commit specific acts of violence.

Harassment and cyberbullying

Learn from a Local is intended to be a community help. It should never be used to harass or bully any individual or business. If harassment crosses the line into a malicious attack it can be reported and may be removed, and the associated account may be terminated. Conversely, content that is deemed to be mildly annoying or petty can and should just be ignored. 

Threats

Learn from a Local is a safe place. Predatory behavior, stalking, threats, harassment, intimidation, invading privacy, revealing the personal information of others and inciting others to commit violent acts or to violate the Terms of Use will be taken very seriously. Anyone caught doing such things may be permanently banned from the site. Just be decent to each other.

Copyright

If it isn’t yours, don’t take it, don’t use it, don’t post it. Only upload videos that you made or that you’re authorized to share. Don’t submit videos you didn’t make, or use content in your videos that someone else owns the copyright to. This includes music, snippets of copyrighted programs or videos made by other users. Contrary to what many people claim online, just because you found it on the internet doesn’t mean it’s free to use.

Privacy

If someone has posted your personal information or uploaded a video of you without your consent, you can request removal of content.
