Community Guidelines

Respect the community

We ask is that you don't abuse the site. Every cool, new community feature on LizenUp involves a certain level of trust. We trust you to be responsible, and millions of users respect that trust. Please be one of them.

 

Don’t Be Evil

Here are some common-sense rules that'll help you steer clear of trouble. Please take these rules seriously and take them to heart. Don't try to look for loopholes or attempt to weasel your way out of the guidelines – just understand them and try to respect the spirit in which they were created.

Explicit or sexual content

LizenUp is not for pornography or sexually explicit content. If this describes your audio, even if it's an audio of your own voice, don't post it on LizenUp. Also, please be advised that we work closely with law enforcement agencies and that we report child exploitation.

Violent or graphic content

It's not acceptable to post violent or gory content that is primarily intended to be shocking, sensational or disrespectful. If you post graphic language content in a news or documentary context, please provide enough information to help people understand what's going on in the audio. Don't encourage others to commit specific acts of violence.  

Hateful content

We don't support content that promotes or condones violence against individuals or groups based on race or ethnic origin, religion, disability, gender, age, nationality, veteran status or sexual orientation/gender identity, or whose primary purpose is inciting hatred on the basis of these core characteristics. This can be a delicate balancing act, but if the primary purpose is to attack a protected group, the content crosses the line.

Spam, misleading metadata and scams

Everyone hates spam. Don't create misleading descriptions, tags, titles or cover arts in order to increase plays. It's not acceptable to post large amounts of untargeted, unwanted or repetitive content, including comments and private messages.

Harmful or dangerous content

Don't post audios that encourage others to do things that might cause them to get badly hurt, especially children. Audios depicting such harmful or dangerous acts may be age-restricted or removed depending on their severity.

Copyright

Respect copyright. Only upload audios that you made or that you're authorized to use. Don't upload audios that you didn't make, or use content in your audios that someone else owns the copyright to, such as music tracks, snippets of copyrighted programs or audios made by other users, without the necessary authorizations.

Threats

Things like predatory behavior, stalking, threats, harassment, intimidation, invading privacy, revealing other people's personal information and inciting others to commit violent acts or to violate the Terms of Use are taken very seriously. Anyone caught doing these things may be permanently banned from LizenUp.
