Community Guidelines

At Helo, it is our objective to create a safe environment that stimulates your creativity and expression. Helo is intended to encourage the exchange of perspective, transcending a diverse array of cultures and beliefs.

Helo Community Guidelines, which we update from time to time, are an invaluable tool in order to help create such a safe and friendly environment.

A violation of these guidelines may result in your account and/or content being removed.

Upholding our Community Guidelines

All Helo users must follow the policies set forth in the Helo Community Guidelines. If a behavior violates these guidelines, or if we receive a valid and properly scoped request from law enforcement bodies or other authorized entities, we investigate the case and take proper action. Depending on the severity of the violation and a user's history on Helo, we may take one or more of the following enforcement measures:

Limiting visibility: We may reduce the distribution of the content that may not be appropriate for all audiences. This makes content less visible on the Popular page or only visible to your followers.

Removing content: We may remove your content from our platform if the content violates the Guidelines and is harmful to the whole community, such as death threats, hate speech, suicidal behavior, or child abuse. We will also remove the content if we receive a valid and properly scoped request from law enforcement bodies or other authorized entities.

Suspending an account: This is our most severe enforcement action. When an account is suspended, it is removed from the platform and the violator will not be allowed to create new accounts.

Reporting to law enforcement bodies: When we believe there is a genuine risk of physical harm or direct threats to public safety, we will report the case to law enforcement bodies as permitted by local laws.
