These Community Guidelines (“Guidelines”) are here to help you understand what it means to be a part of the Elbi community. By reading, posting and participating in the Elbi community, you agree to these Guidelines and to act according to them. Your use of our products are subject to these Community Guidelines and our Terms and Conditions.
Elbi is an inclusive and diverse community, so be polite and respectful in what you post. Not everyone will feel the same as you, so if your opinions are different to other users, try not to be offended. Content is moderated 24/7 and if something is deemed inappropriate, we will suspend it.
Treat campaigns, actions and others as you would treat them in real life. This means behaving with common decency, common sense, courtesy and respect. You are not anonymous here!
Remember the children
If you would hesitate to show your photos, drawings or comments to a child, your family, or even a stranger, that means it’s not suitable for our products.
Only upload your own content
Respect the copyright of others. This means don’t steal photos, drawings or comments and pass them off as your own. If you are sharing images of other people, make sure you have necessary permission from everyone in a picture or video. For children and young people the permission must be from their parent or legal guardian.
Moderate or be moderated
Elbi content has to be appropriately moderated as “safe” for all, due to the diversity of our audience. If your judgment proves to be poor, we’ll moderate your posting and/or account. If you see something that you think may violate our guidelines, please help us by flagging it to us.
We want this to be your Elbi community. Celebrate your sense of charity, make a difference and be a part of what’s important to you.
Don’t upload anything that isn’t yours
This includes other people’s photos, drawings, comments, and/or stuff you’ve copied or collected from the internet.
Don’t upset people
This means don’t post or write anything that is offensive, upsetting, graphic, illegal or crude.
We won’t ask you to share your personal information. So, please make sure you don’t make public any personal information about yourself or anyone else (for example telephone number, address, location or email address), especially anything that could identify a child or young person.
Respect the copyright of others. Don’t steal photos, drawings or comments that other people have shared and pass them off as your own. Posting copyrighted content without permission might be a violation of the law and get you in trouble.
Don’t directly contact Elbi Charities or beneficiaries
Elbi has worked hard to develop and maintain its relationships with its charities and their beneficiaries and our employees are DBS checked in line with our Child Safeguarding Policy. If you try and contact them directly you are in direct breach of our Terms & Conditions.
Ignore these rules and we may delete your posts and/or account.
