Public Chats Content Policy
The following community ethics will help you understand what type of content and expression is acceptable within Public Chats, and what type of content may be reported for removal. Please be advised that a reported piece of content does not guarantee automatic removal.
Violence and Threats
We do not allow overly graphic expressions of violence, in particular where the violence is glorified or encouraged. This includes extreme depictions or descriptions of violence and credible threats of violence to any individual and/or group. We prohibit planning or promoting of violent acts that could directly or indirectly cause physical or mental harm to others.
Bullying and Harassment
We encourage vigorous debate and believe in people openly expressing their opinions, no matter how negatively these may be received. However, we do not tolerate anything that crosses over into the bullying or harassment of private individuals and/or groups.
We defend a person’s right to express unpopular points of view, but we do not allow speech which attacks or demeans a group based on ethnic origin, race, religion, disability, gender, age or sexual orientation.
Graphic material of any kind that is posted purely for titillating purposes is not permitted. There may be instances where graphic content is permitted in acceptable contexts; for example, a conversation that’s raising awareness about terrorism, or human rights abuses.
Viber does not allow the promotion or encouragement of self-harm, eating disorders or alcohol and hard drug abuse.
Identity and Privacy
We do not allow the publishing of personal or private information of others without their consent. This includes but is not limited to: telephone numbers; email addresses; home addresses; bank details; financial information; social security numbers; passport or ID information.
We allow a level of nudity within the context of a family-friendly setting (e.g. breastfeeding) and photos of art and sculpture. We do not allow sexually explicit content or pornographic content.
We do not allow content that breaks the law or provides advice on how to break the law. This includes defamation (libel), contempt of court and breach of copyright.
