To be transparent about what is and isn’t allowed on Otonomy, we’ve put together this set of guidelines. The following activity/material is not allowed on Otonomy.ca or any other sites operated by Otonomy Solutions Ltd.
Illegal Content and Conduct
Intellectual Property Infringement
- Otonomy is a marketplace, rather than a file-sharing platform, so we recognize that copyrighted materials are often used in fair use context. We strongly support this and urge copyright holders to take this into consideration before submitting complaints. If you’re not sure, the golden rule is to always ask the rights holder for permission before republishing their content.
- We know that there may be different definitions of this, but generally, we define pornography as visual depictions of sexually explicit acts and any nudity.
Technologically Harmful Content
- Please don’t upload or link to malware, spyware, adware, or other malicious or destructive code.
- Don’t claim to be a person or organization you are not.
Calls to Violence
- Do not publish calls to violence. By that, we mean you cannot post content which threatens, incites, or promotes violence, physical harm, or death. This includes threats targeting individuals or groups, as well as other indiscriminate acts of violence.
Posting Private Information
- Don’t share someone’s personal information without their consent.
- Advertising external products and/or services on Otonomy is not permitted.
Spam or Machine-generated Content
- You know what this is, but in general, sites such as those primarily dedicated to drive traffic to third-party sites, boost SEO, phish, spoof, or promote affiliate marketing aren’t allowed.
Bear in mind that these are just guidelines — interpretations are solely up to Otonomy. These guidelines are not exhaustive and are subject to change.
If you believe content on Otonomy.ca has violated our Terms of Service or any of these policies, please report it. We aim to promptly review and investigate all complaints that we receive, but if and how we respond will depend on a variety of factors, such as the information available to us and the type of violation. We may also contact the content creator to discuss the matter directly with them.
