Community Guidelines

Steady helps individuals and teams who produce content to earn recurring income from their community. And although Steady does not produce any content together with its publishers, we still carry some risks and responsibilities as we enable the financing of their projects. For that reason we reserve the right to reject certain projects. These guidelines lay out the standards required for all projects on Steady.

Respect and Fairness

Freedom of expression is important to us. But we draw a line at content that encourages violence or promotes hate and intolerance against individuals or groups on the basis of their ethnicity, religion, disability, gender, age, nationality, sexual orientation or sexual identification. We reserve the right to determine which content is unacceptable on these grounds. Threatening, stalking, harassment, abuse, intimidation, intrusions of privacy, the publication of private data and calls for violence are not permitted on Steady.

Honesty

Steady does not allow the publication of fake projects or the collection of funds for actions that the users do not genuinely intend to undertake. No one may use Steady to publish content that they have not created or do not hold the copyright to. Nor may anyone attempt to seek funds in order to stage a prank, or simply not complete the described project.

Protection of Minors

Pornographic content is forbidden on Steady. We reserve the right to determine when the boundary between acceptable content and pornography has been breached. We do not tolerate the promotion of rape or other forms of sexual abuse. All cases of child abuse will result in criminal prosecution.

Violence

Steady does not allow the publication or promotion of violent content which only serves to shock and has no journalistic or artistic merit. We reserve the right to determine the merit and acceptability of such content. Violent content is only acceptable when accompanied by factual and contextual information that allows users to understand the situation. Steady does not allow the publication or promotion of material that may cause harm and distress to users - especially children.

Criminal Activity

Steady does not allow the creation of projects or collection of finances to promote illegal activities. For example, instructions for assembling weapons, copyright infringement, money laundering, commercial spamming, drug dealing or sexual abuse.

Spam

Steady may not be used to publish spam. The distribution of large volumes of unrequested, unwanted or repetitive content is not allowed.

Banned Users

Steady organizes financial transactions. We therefore closely scrutinize the individuals who publish and promote projects. Steady may ban individuals who are or have been involved in fraud, deception, violence, harassment, terror, political extremism, stalking or other illegal activity, as well as those who are or have been connected to groups engaged in such activity.

Consequences

Users who do not meet the standards of these Community Guidelines may be warned, have their access restricted, and their publisher's agreement with Steady immediately terminated. In case you observe a project that you believe fails these guidelines, please contact us by e-mail. Please accept that not all content that you may not agree with necessarily fails these Community Guidelines.
