Around the View

Terms & Privacy

Our Principles

We actively encourage healthy debates and sharing of views. However, we cannot allow illegal activities, encouragement of violence, crime, or harassment. Speekur is a place to have respectable discussions on any topic, and we kindly ask that our users stick to attacking ideas not the person.

Our Rules

We want to be open and transparent about what speekur is and why we created this platform.

Our goal is to facilitate interesting and open discussion, a place where everyone feels comfortable sharing their ideas, opinions, and thoughts. The best way to learn is not just to listen but to question and speak your mind. If users don’t feel comfortable sharing their views, asking (sometimes silly) questions, or even being wrong, then how can they learn.

And yes, sometimes people who disagree can still disagree even after a healthy exchange of views, but at least they are aware of each other’s positions on a certain topic or issue. We will never agree on everything, there are too many of us for a start.

With all that in mind, we allow and actively encourage healthy debates and sharing of views. However, we cannot allow illegal activities, encouragement of violence, crime, abuse or harassment. Speekur is a place for respectable discussion on any topic, and we kindly ask that our users stick to attacking ideas not the person. We won’t tolerate abuse, insults, or harassment of any kind.

If you choose to use Speekur you agree to the terms set out on this page. Our users are able to report abuse or harassment and we will act on any reports that we see as a breach of our terms within 24 hours by removing the offending content or individual.

Content Policy

We encourage people to share their views, even if they’re different from the mainstream. However, we do not allow pornography, harassment or spam, racism, sexism, homophobia, illegal & criminal activities and encouragement of violence. We are fair, have a high bar for what constitute an offence and we only care about what you do on our platform.

The current content moderation system functions as follows:

  1. User reports content or account
  2. Speekur staff accepts or rejects report
  3. If accepted, user is notified and given chance to respond
  4. Final decision made

Strike Offense

Users will receive a strike for certain violations of the Content Policy. Users will be notified about the strike, which term was violated, and which piece of content was in violation. Users will have a chance to respond. Individual strikes will expire after 90 days.

We will follow the procedure below

  • Strike 1 – Warning
  • Strike 2 – 2nd Warning
  • Strike 3 – Ban

Spam on Speekur is generally defined as repeated, unwanted, and/or unsolicited actions, automated or manual, that negatively affect Speekur users, groups, and/or Speekur itself. Spam also includes content that is designed to further unlawful acts (such as phishing) or mislead recipients as to the source of the material (such as spoofing). Spam may result in an immediate ban if determined to be malicious or by use of a bot.

Immediate Ban Offense

Users will be immediately banned for certain violations of the Content Policy. Users will be notified about the ban and which term was violated, but they will not be able to see the content that was in violation as it will have to be removed from Speekur. Appeals on immediate bans will be reviewed by the Speekur admins.

  • Illegal (terrorism, paedophilia, extortion, fraud, revenge porn, sex trafficking)
  • Personal and confidential information (doxxing)
  • Malware
  • Impersonation
  • Incites a true threat of violence

Spam Policy

Spam is not allowed on Speekur. Spam may take many forms, and our rules are intended to cover a range of prohibited behaviour, including: Repeated, unwanted, and/or unsolicited actions, automated or manual, that negatively affect Speekur users, groups, and/or Speekur itself; Content that is designed to further unlawful acts (such as phishing) or mislead recipients as to the source of the material (such as spoofing); Commercially-motivated spam, that typically aims to drive traffic from Speekur over to another website, service or initiative through backlinking or other inauthentic methods; Inauthentic engagements, that try to make accounts or content appear more popular than they are; Coordinated activity, that attempts to artificially influence opinion through the use of multiple accounts, fake accounts, and/or scripting or automation. In most cases, spam will result in a strike for your account.

Privacy Policy

This privacy policy is made available for remix under a Creative Commons Sharealike license.

1. Overview

Your privacy is important to Speekur, Inc. (“Speekur”, “we” or “us”). It is our policy to respect the privacy of our users regarding all information we may collect while operating our Services. This privacy policy applies to our Services. This privacy policy sets forth what information we collect about users of the Services and explains how that information is used and protected.

Speekur is encrypted via HTTPS, and we encrypt and/or hash all sensitive information while in motion or when stored at rest, including emails, passwords and private messages.

Speekur does not ask you for Personal Information unless it is required to provide certain features of the Services.

Speekur does not wilfully disclose the Personal Information of our users to anyone except to comply to applicable law or protect our rights.

Certain features of the Services may require you to submit information (including Personal Information, which is defined below) as a condition to use certain features of the Services. We collect your Personal Information when voluntarily submitted by you. The Personal Information you provide is used to a create user account and login credentials for the purpose of using certain features of the Services and/or fulfilling your specific requests, unless you give us permission to use it in another manner. We will not collect your Personal Information unless you give it to us. “Personal Information” means any information that is classified as sensitive because it is personally identifiable such as a verified name, fingerprints or other biometric data, email address, street address or telephone number.

2. Gathering of Personal Information

Certain visitors to Speekur’s websites choose to interact with Speekur in ways that require Speekur to gather Personal Information. The amount and type of information that Speekur gathers depends on the nature of the interaction.

3. Website Visitors

From time to time we may use one or more third-party services to improve certain services on our network. In order to provide you with the Services, we may share your Personal Information with certain authorised providers of third-party services (“Authorised Third Parties”) who are authorised to act on behalf of Speekur in connection with the Services. Our agreements with any such Authorised Third Parties states that they will not use any Personal Information received from us for any purpose other than performing services on our behalf.

Like most website operators, Speekur also collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Speekur’ purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Speekur’ visitors use its website. From time to time, Speekur may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

4. Open Data

Speekur may collect statistics about the behaviour of visitors to its websites. For instance, Speekur may monitor the most popular accounts, groups or activity on the site. Speekur may display this information publicly or provide it to others as de-identified data.

5. Disclosure and Protection of Personal Information

Speekur discloses certain potentially Personal Information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Speekur’ behalf or to provide services to Speekur or its’ websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Speekur’ websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them.

6. Notification and Disclosure of Breach

Speekur will notify users immediately if we believe their Personal Information is disclosed in any unauthorised way.

Although Speekur provides reasonable administrative, physical and electronic security measures to protect Personal Information from unauthorised access, we cannot assure the security of any information you transmit or guarantee that this information will not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed.

We will make any legally required disclosures of any breach of the security, confidentiality, or integrity of your unencrypted personal Information. To the extent the law of your jurisdiction allows for notification of a breach via e-mail or public posting, you agree to accept notice in that form.

If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users.

7. Cookies

A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. Speekur requires cookies to identify and validate sessions, ensure security and to improve the experience of the end users. Speekur visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using Speekur’ websites, with the drawback that certain features of Speekur’ websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

8. How Long We Keep Your Information

Personal Information that you provide to the Services may be retained indefinitely, to the extent it is consistent with the Terms of Use and applicable law. Speekur may in its discretion elect to retain Personal Information only while deemed necessary for business, legal and tax purposes.

9. Government, Regulatory Agencies, Courts, and Law Enforcement

We may access, preserve, and share any information about you, without your consent, to government or law enforcement officials or private parties if we believe in good faith that it is necessary or appropriate to respond to requests, claims and legal process (including, but not limited to, subpoenas), to comply with applicable laws, to protect the property and rights of Speekur, you or a third party, to protect the safety of the public or any person, or to prevent or stop activity we may consider to pose a risk of being, or is, illegal, unethical or legally actionable.

We may also access, preserve and share information when we have a good faith belief it is necessary to: detect, prevent and address fraud and other illegal activity; to protect ourselves, you and others, including as part of audits, inquiries or investigations; and to prevent death or imminent bodily harm. Information we receive about you may be accessed, processed and retained for an extended period of time when it is the subject of a legal request or obligation, governmental investigation, or investigations concerning possible violations of our terms or policies, or otherwise to prevent harm.

If you voluntarily share or submit any information (e.g., name) or content (e.g., pictures), or commentary (e.g., forums, message boards, chats) through the Services, or link it to any social media platforms, you acknowledge that the post and any content or information associated with it may become available to the public

10. Business Transfers

If Speekur, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Speekur goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Speekur may continue to use your Personal Information as set forth in this policy. At any time users are able to delete all content and personally identifiable information from the site.

11. Children’s Privacy

Speekur does not knowingly collect or solicit any information from anyone under the age of 18 or knowingly allow such persons to register for the Services. The Services and their content are not directed at children under the age of 18. In the event that we learn that we have collected Personal Information from a child under age 18 without parental consent, we will delete that information. If you believe that we might have any information from or about a child under 16, please contact Speekur at [email protected].

12. Children’s Privacy

Speekur may use the information that we collect about you or that you provide to us, including personal information to provide you with information about our products or services, to personalise features and content (including ads, news and feeds).

12. Other Web Sites and Services

The Services may contain links to other websites or services that we do not own or operate. We are not responsible for the practices employed by any websites or services linked to or from the Services, including the information or content contained within them. Your browsing and interaction on any third-party website or service, including those that have a link on our Services, are subject to that third party’s own rules and policies, not ours. In addition, you agree that we are not responsible and do not have control over any third-parties that you authorise to access your Personal Information. If you are using a third-party website or service and you allow them to access your Personal Information you do so at your own risk.

13. International Considerations

We are based in the United Kingdom and have developed data practices designed to assure all Speekur information is appropriately protected, but we cannot always know where Personal Information may be accessed or processed. In addition, we may employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. If we disclose Personal Information to a third party or to our employees outside of the United Kingdom, we will seek assurances that any information we may provide to them is safeguarded adequately and in accordance with this Privacy Policy and applicable privacy laws.

If you live in or you are visiting from the European Union, United Kingdom or other regions with laws governing data collection and use, please note that you are agreeing to the transfer of your Personal Information, including sensitive data, by us from your region to countries which may not have data protection laws that provide the same level of protection that exists in your country. By providing your Personal Information, you consent to any transfer and processing in accordance with this policy.

14. Privacy Policy Changes

Although most changes are likely to be minor, Speekur may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and in Speekur’ sole discretion. Speekur encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. Your continued use of this site after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such changes.
