Content guidelines

The following content guidelines apply to all material published on our platform at kivvon.com. At KiVVON, we understand the term “content” to mean any type of digital content, regardless of format or medium, provided by publishers or users on the platform. This includes, in particular, comments from users, texts, images, videos and audio files.

The masculine form used in this document to refer to persons always includes female, male and diverse persons. In order to ensure better readability, gender-specific spelling and multiple designations are not used. All personal designations are therefore to be interpreted as gender-neutral.

These content guidelines are about protecting us and our users as best we can from questionable and dubious content.
Secure content for everyone!

KiVVON does not serve as a platform for false, violence-glorifying, confusing, hateful or harmful content or actions and may not be misused for these purposes. KiVVON therefore reserves the right to delete such content, to prevent its distribution, to block or delete domains, persons, groups of persons or accounts from which such content is distributed without comment.

If you have any questions or suggestions regarding the use of KiVVON, please contact us.

We wish you lots of fun and useful benefits on and with KiVVON!

KiVVON stands for freedom of opinion and freedom of the press. Even if we regard this as a basic prerequisite for the exchange on our platform, you are obliged vis-à-vis KiVVON not to post any content on the platform that is likely to violate applicable law and the rights of others through its content, form, design or in any other way.

Accordingly, you are prohibited from posting content that violates criminal, competition and youth protection laws or infringes the name, trademark, copyright, image and/or data protection rights of third parties.

Unjustified attacks on personal rights and human dignity have no place on KiVVON.

If you find content on KiVVON that appears to violate this content policy, you can inform us directly via the “Report” function on the platform or by sending an email to hello@kivvon.com. We then check the content and take the necessary measures.

KiVVON is also a platform for the open exchange of opinions. However, this has its limits if those affected are unlawfully insulted, injured or impaired by content. In order to enable/guarantee fair and open cooperation, we are dependent on the cooperation of everyone!

  • Private, financial or medical data;
  • Images of private individuals whose right to their own image is infringed by the distribution or public display of these images.

KiVVON does not tolerate sexual harassment or pornography on the platform. The use of the platform is also open to underage users aged 16 and over with the consent of their parents. Content that contains such offensive content will be removed by us.

If we become aware of content with child pornographic content on the platform, we will immediately block the content and the user who has posted it on the platform on KiVVON and file a complaint with the law enforcement authorities.

Content that is deleted by us may contain, for example

  • sexual harassment of users and third parties;
  • offensive, sexist, obscene, vulgar, vile or disgusting materials and expressions;
  • Pictures of naked people whose poses suggest pornographic intentions;
  • Fetish images and pictorial representations of sexual activities;
  • Unambiguous sexual descriptions.

We try to differentiate as clearly as possible between actual pornography and the depiction of the human body – which may also be naked – in the context of corresponding topics. These topics include, for example, health education and well-being, sexual health, breastfeeding and art.

KiVVON is not a platform that supports or tolerates forms of exploitation – neither of animals nor of humans. KiVVON removes content and restricts its distribution and deletes user accounts in which financial, sexual or physical exploitation is suggested.

This includes:

  • Grooming, inappropriate graphic images, sexual comments and the sexual exploitation of minors. If we come across such content, we will contact the relevant law enforcement authorities.
  • Sexual services such as escort services, prostitution, sex cams that indicate human trafficking or suggest physical or sexual exploitation.
  • Human trafficking or unauthorized commercial activities such as trade in products from protected animal species, trade in endangered animals or trade in organs.
  • Photos and graphic depictions of a private or sexual nature that were not taken or published by mutual consent, e.g. upskirting images or so-called “revenge pornography”

Activities that indicate illegal activities by our users in the area of network marketing will be prevented by us and the corresponding content will be deleted.

Network marketing (also known as network marketing, multi-level marketing (MLM), referral marketing or structured sales) is a special form of direct sales. In contrast to traditional direct sales, customers are encouraged to recruit further customers as independent sales partners. Depending on their structure, network marketing systems can resemble an illegal pyramid scheme or pass themselves off as network marketing.

We at KiVVON want to make sure that the suggestions and ideas on our pages are interesting and useful for you. For this reason, we delete any type of spam that comes to our attention. We would therefore ask you to pay attention to the impression that KiVVON gives to others and to avoid spreading spam as much as possible.

Our definition of spam includes, among other things:

  • Content that is irrelevant, misleading or a mere repetition of known posts;
  • Links to pages that offer no added value for users, are misleading or untrustworthy;
  • Unwanted and misleading messages

  1. Advertising must comply with the applicable legal provisions and be clearly labeled.
