MyPetBook Community Standards
MyPetBook gives people around the world the power to publish their own Pet stories, see the world through the eyes of many other people, and connect and share wherever they go. The conversation that happens on MyPetBook – and the opinions expressed here – mirror the diversity of the people using MyPetBook.

To balance the needs and interests of a global population, MyPetBook protects expression that meets the community standards outlined on this page.

Please review these standards. They will help you understand what type of expression is acceptable, and what type of content may be reported and removed.
• Violence and Threats
Safety is MyPetBook 's top priority. We remove content and may escalate to law enforcement when we perceive a genuine risk of physical harm, or a direct threat to public safety. You may not credibly threaten others, or organize acts of real-world violence. Organizations with a record of terrorist or violent criminal activity are not allowed to maintain a presence on our site. We also prohibit promoting, planning or celebrating any of your actions if they have, or could, result in financial harm to others, including theft and vandalism.
• Self-Harm
MyPetBook takes threats of self-harm very seriously. We remove any promotion or encouragement of self-mutilation, eating disorders or hard drug abuse. We also work with suicide prevention agencies around the world to provide assistance for people in distress.
• Bullying and Harassment
MyPetBook does not tolerate bullying or harassment. We allow users to speak freely on matters and people of public interest, but take action on all reports of abusive behavior directed at private individuals. Repeatedly targeting other users with unwanted friend requests or messages is a form of harassment.
• Hate Speech
MyPetBook does not permit hate speech, but distinguishes between serious and humorous speech. While we encourage you to challenge ideas, institutions, events, and practices, we do not permit individuals or groups to attack others based on their race, ethnicity, national origin, religion, sex, gender, sexual orientation, disability or medical condition.
• Graphic Content
MyPetBook has long been a place where people turn to share their experiences and raise awareness about pet issues important to them. Sometimes, those experiences and issues involve graphic content that is of public interest or concern, such as human rights abuses or acts of terrorism. In many instances, when people share this type of content, it is to condemn it. However, graphic images shared for sadistic effect or to celebrate or glorify violence not allowed and definitely has no place on our MyPetBook.

When people share any photo or experience content, we expect that they will share in a responsible manner. That includes choosing carefully the audience for the content. For graphic video, people should warn their audience about the nature of the content in the video so that their audience can make an informed choice about whether to watch it.
• Nudity
MyPetBook has a strict policy against the sharing of pornographic content and any explicitly sexual content where a minor is involved. We also impose limitations on the display of nudity. We aspire to respect people’s right to share content of personal importance, whether those are photos of a sculpture like Michelangelo's David or family photos of a child breastfeeding.
• Identity and Privacy
On MyPetBook people connect using their real names and identities. We ask that you refrain from publishing the personal information of others without their consent. Claiming to be another person, creating a false presence for an organization, or creating multiple accounts undermines community and violates Facebook's terms.
• Intellectual Property
Before sharing content on MyPetBook, please be sure you have the right to do so. We ask that you respect copyrights, trademarks, and other legal rights.
