Terms & Conditions
Before we get in to all this - our system is most likely not GDPR compliant. It might be... since we believe most of the same stuff... but we havn't paid a lawyer to tell us we're ok.
As such - Taglockr is only available to non-EU citizens who reside in the US. We'll get that fixed if we ever start making money.

Rules and Conditions
Taglockr believes in freedom of speech as well as freedom from speech. However - Taglockr is a private company not a government organization and as such reserves the right to limit content published through our Service. As such we have rules in place to discourage or prevent certain kinds of content on our Service.
Taglockr reserves the right immediately and permanently suspend accounts for the following reasons:
- You may not use our service for any unlawful purpose or in furtherance of illegal activities. This includes selling, buying, or facilitating transactions in illegal goods or services, as well as certain types of regulated goods or services.
- You may not threaten violence against an individual or group or encourage other to commit acts of violence against an individual or group. We report possible violations of the Terroristic Threats law to the appropriate authorities. This is not meant to prevent hyperbolic language between friends - however the individual being threatened will get to determine whether there is a friendship when posts are under review.
- Content which involves child sexual exploitation will be reported to the appropriate authorities.
- You may not threaten or promote terrorism or violent extremism.
- You may not encourage someone to self harm or suicide.
- You may not publish or post other people's private information (such as home phone number and address) without their express authorization and permission. We also prohibit threatening to expose private information or incentivizing others to do so as well.
- You may not engage in the targeted harassment of someone, or incite other people to do so. This includes wishing or hoping that someone experiences physical harm.
- You may not promote violence against, threaten, or harass other people on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, caste, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, religious affiliation, age, disability, or serious disease.
- You may not post media that is excessively gory or share violent or adult content. Media depicting sexual violence and/or assault is not permitted.
Taglockr reserves the right to change the access levels of certain kinds of content from public to private. Once set private the posts will not be able to be set public again. For the following examples content posted to private groups is considered "private" - group moderators are solely responsible for determining what is appropriate for their own groups. Repeated violations of the following could result in a temporarily suspended account:
- You may not post sexually explicit content in non-private posts.
- You may not post advertisements for sex work in non-private posts.
- You may not post content intended to manipulate or interfere in elections or other civic processes in non-private posts. This includes posting or sharing content that may suppress participation or mislead people about when, where, or how to participate in a civic process.
- You may not impersonate individuals, groups, or organizations in a manner that is intended to or does mislead, confuse, or deceive others. Parody accounts are permissable so long as they are labeled as such. Taglockr reserves the right to reclaim any username which infringes on a trademark or is "verified" on Twitter, Twitch, or YouTube without liability to you.
- You may not deceptively share synthetic or manipulated media that are likely to cause harm. In addition, we may label posts originating from URLs known to contain synthetic and manipulated media to help people understand their authenticity and to provide additional context.
You understand that suspended accounts will not be refunded. If suspended we will permanently delete all information related to the account however we will retain as much identifying information as deemed necssary to prevent new accounts from being created by suspended individuals.
