Listiki Rules

Why have rules?

Listiki is a service based on user generated content. The service itself is free for everyone to explore, contribute and share. We respect the ownership of the content that users share and each user is responsible for the content he or she provides. Because of the free nature of the service, we do not moderate or actively monitor the content produced, except under certain circumstances desrcibed below

Listiki Boundaries

In order to provide the Listiki service and the ability to communicate and stay connected with others, there are some limitations on the type of content that can be published with Listiki. These limitations comply with legal requirements and make Listiki a better experience for all. We may need to change these rules from time to time and reserve the right to do so. Please check back here to see the latest.

    You may not impersonate others through the Listiki service in a manner that does or is intended to mislead, confuse, or deceive others

  • Trademark:
    We reserve the right to reclaim user names on behalf of businesses or individuals that hold legal claim or trademark on those user names. Accounts using business names and/or logos to mislead others will be permanently suspended.

Spam and Abuse

Listiki strives to protect its users from spam and abuse. Technical abuse and user abuse is not tolerated on Listiki.com, and will result in permanent suspension. Any accounts engaging in the activities specified below are subject to permanent suspension.

  • Serial Accounts:
    You may not create serial accounts for disruptive or abusive purposes, or with overlapping use cases. Mass account creation may result in suspension of all related accounts. Please note that any violation of the Listiki Rules is cause for permanent suspension of all accounts.

  • Username Squatting:
    You may not engage in username squatting. Accounts that are inactive for more than 6 months may also be removed without further notice. Some of the factors that we take into account when determining what conduct is considered to be username squatting are:

    • the number of accounts created

    • creating accounts for the purpose of preventing others from using those account names

    • creating accounts for the purpose of selling those accounts

  • Selling user names:
    Unless you have been specifically permitted to do so in a separate agreement with Listiki, you agree that you will not reproduce, duplicate, copy, sell, trade or resell the Services for any purpose, where "Services" is defined as follows: Your use of Listiki’s products, services and web sites (referred to collectively as the “Services” in this document and excluding any services provided to you by Listiki under a separate written agreement) is subject to the terms of a legal agreement between you and Listiki.

  • Malware/Phishing:
    You may not publish or link to malicious content intended to damage or disrupt another user’s browser or computer or to compromise a user’s privacy.

  • Spam:
    You may not use the Listiki service for the purpose of spamming anyone. What constitutes “spamming” will evolve as we respond to new tricks and tactics by spammers. Some of the factors that we take into account when determining what conduct is considered to be spamming are:

    • If your Listikis consist mainly of links;

    • If you post misleading Listikis;

    • The number of spam complaints that have been filed against you;

    • If you post duplicate content over multiple accounts or multiple duplicate updates on one account;

    • If you post multiple unrelated items to a Listiki;

    • If you have attempted to "sell" followers, particularly through tactics considered aggressive following or follower churn;

    • Creating or purchasing accounts in order to gain followers;

    • Using or promoting third-party sites that claim to get you more followers (such as follower trains, sites promising "more followers fast," or any other site that offers to automatically add followers to your account);

    • If you create false or misleading Points of Interest;

    • If you create Points of Interest to namesquat or spam.

  • Pornography:
    You may not post or use obscene or pornographic images or videos in either your Listikis or profile picture

Your account may be suspended for Terms of Service violations if any of the above is true. Accounts created to replace suspended accounts will be permanently suspended.

Accounts engaging in any of these behaviors may be investigated for abuse. Accounts under investigation may be removed from Search for quality. Listiki reserves the right to immediately terminate your account without further notice in the event that, in its judgment, you violate these Rules or the Terms of Service.
