BitNile Code of Conduct

BITNILE
CODE OF CONDUCT

 

Date of Last Revision: March 1st, 2023

At BitNile, our mission is to provide an exciting, community-oriented, video-based, metaverse platform experience where users can interact safely. To achieve this goal, we ask that all users participate in such a way that promotes a friendly, positive-experience community in all BitNile spaces, whether online or offline. We have prepared this Code of Conduct to describe the expectations for our users. This Conduct of Conduct is incorporated into our Terms of Service (the “Terms of Service”) and applies to all users, user-generated content and user activity on our Platform and may be updated based on the evolution of the BitNile community and our Service. Any capitalized terms not defined herein shall have the meaning set forth in our Terms of Service.

To protect the integrity of our community, as the provider of the Platform, BitNile reserves the right to suspend any account at any time for any conduct that we determine to be inappropriate or harmful. Such actions may include: removal of content and/or suspension of account(s).

 

Behavioral Standards

Intolerance
BitNile encourages social interactions between users across multiple countries. The use of derogatory or demeaning language or images based on race, ethnicity, gender, religion or sexual orientation is prohibited. Actions that marginalize, belittle, or defame users or groups are similarly prohibited.

Harassment
Harassment can take many forms. Communicating or behaving in a manner that is offensively coarse, intimidating, threatening, or causes annoyance or alarm is not allowed.

Assault
Any act of violence toward a user’s avatar, including an act of intimidation or bullying, will not be tolerated. Creating or using scripts that singularly or persistently target a user and prevent a user’s enjoyment of the Platform is also not allowed.

Off-Platform Conduct
BitNile is committed to facilitating inclusive communities, which can only happen if our users feel secure and protected. In order to achieve this goal, BitNile may enforce against severe offenses committed by members of the BitNile community that occur outside of our Platform, for example, hate group membership, terrorist recruitment, and sexual assault. We may investigate reports that include verifiable evidence of these behaviors and, if we are able to confirm, issue enforcements against the relevant users. We may also consider allegations of similarly severe conduct by those wishing to join the BitNile community and, if substantiated, we may terminate the account.

Invasion of Personal Space/Comfort Zones
It is important to respect the personal space of another user. We strongly encourage you to be mindful of your movement, hand gestures, and your avatar’s positioning relative to other avatars.

Inappropriate Content
No content, activity, and communication within the Platform may include

  • Content involving illegality, such as piracy, criminal activity, terrorism, obscenity, child pornography, and illegal drug use.
  • Infringing or unauthorized content, such as content that you did not create or do not have permission to use.
  • Cruel or hateful content that could harm, harass, promote or condone violence against, or that is primarily intended to incite hatred of, animals, or individuals or groups based on race or ethnic origin, religion, nationality, disability, gender, age, veteran status, or sexual orientation/gender identity.
  • Intensely violent or graphic content that could be construed as primarily intended to be shocking, sensational, or disrespectful.
  • Sexually explicit content.
  • Content that promotes or could be construed as primarily intended to evade limitations on prohibited content.

Disclosure
Sharing personal information about other users, either directly or indirectly, without their consent—including, but not limited to, gender, religion, age, marital status, race, sexual orientation, alternate account names (including account statuses, such as whether it is on hold, suspended, or active), and real-world location beyond what is provided by them in their user profile—is not allowed. Except for the purpose of reporting abuse or any violation of BitNile’s policies to BitNile, the remote monitoring, posting or sharing of conversations without a participant’s consent are prohibited.

Interfering with the Platform
BitNile aims to provide users with an enjoyable experience on the Platform. Please be mindful that your actions may cause slow server performance or may inhibit another user’s ability to enjoy the Platform. Examples of prohibited activity include, but are not limited to:

  • Manipulating scripts;
  • Repeated transmission of undesired content;
  • Spawning items;
  • Disrupting events or user conversations, such as through the use of repetitive sounds, causing echo effects, or unmuting your mic when it should be muted;
  • Spamming, such as the repeated posting of advertising or self-promotional content;
  • Posting interpersonal disputes or personal negative commentary publicly when such communications should occur through private channels of communication;
  • Flaming, such as hostile or disruptive posts intended to incite an angry response or to encourage other users to violate BitNile’s policies; and
  • Abusing BitNile personnel or moderators, such as sharing content that has been removed, suspended or locked, or conducting activity that questions a moderator’s decision or competence.

Objects, scripts, or actions that interfere with or disrupt the Platform, servers, or other systems related to the Platform will not be tolerated in any form. You will be held responsible for any actions taken by, or caused by objects or scripts that belong to, you or your account.

Impersonation
Impersonation of another user, stealing another user’s identity, or claiming recognition for content created by another user are all strictly prohibited. Additionally, the impersonation of BitNile personnel will result in immediate account termination.

 

Enforcement

Warning, Suspension, Termination
The type of action we’ll take for a particular violation of these rules is determined on a case-by-case basis. We’ll look at severity, whether you’re a repeat offender, and other factors. Action taken can be anything from a warning for less severe offenses, a loss of access to social features such as voice chat and adding friends, or all the way up to a permanent account ban.

If your account is permanently banned, you may lose all rights to games, virtual items, account balances, or other items that you may have earned or purchased. If you have multiple accounts, we may take action against all of your accounts.

Reporting Violations
BitNile strongly encourages users to report violations of the Code of Conduct, our Terms of Service or any other policies. BitNile reviews all such reports and will keep the identity of the reporter strictly confidential.
