Our goal is to provide a service that allows you to discover and receive content from sources that interest you as well as to share your content with others. We respect the ownership of the content that users share and each user is responsible for the content he or she provides. Because of these principles, we do not actively monitor user’s content and will not censor user content, except in limited circumstances described below.
Content Boundaries and Use of PostaHope
In order to provide the PostaHope 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 PostaHope. These limitations comply with legal requirements and make PostaHope a better experience for all. We may need to change these rules from time to time and reserve the right to do so.

If you create false or misleading Points of Interest;
If you create Points of Interest to name squat or spam.
