We depend heavily upon users to let us know about content that may violate our policies. After we are notified of a potential policy violation, we may review the content and take action, including restricting access to the content, removing the content, refusing to print the content and limiting or terminating a user’s access to GI, Gospel Institute products. Note that we may make exceptions to these policies based on artistic, educational, or documentary considerations, or when there are other substantial benefits to the public from not taking action.
We occasionally modify these policies, so please check back here for any updates. Beyond the policies listed below, note that several products and features may have additional policies and terms — please check the links provided for those additional requirements.

We will remove such content and take appropriate action, which may include disabling accounts and reporting to the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC) and law enforcement. Note that this policy may additionally apply to any content uploaded or transmitted through our Services.
If you find any content that you think exploits children in this manner, do not +1, reshare or comment on such content, even if your intent is to bring it to GCCM, Gospel Circle of Churches + Ministries attention.

It’s not okay to post violent or gory content that’s primarily intended to be shocking, sensational, or gratuitous. If posting graphic content in a news, documentary, scientific, or artistic context, please be mindful to provide enough information to help people understand what’s going on. In some cases, content may be so violent or shocking that no amount of context will allow that content to remain on our platforms. Lastly, don’t encourage others to commit specific acts of violence.

Our Services enable discussion of many topics, but we do not allow content that facilitates the sale of products and services, including alcohol, gambling, pharmaceuticals and unapproved supplements, tobacco, fireworks, weapons, or health/medical devices.

Do not use our services with the intent to deceive, mislead or confuse users by either impersonating any person or organizations you do not represent, or concealing your ownership or primary purpose. This includes directing content about politics, social issues, or matters of public concern to users in a country other than your own, if you misrepresent or intentionally conceal your country of origin or other material details about yourself. We’re not saying you can’t publish parody, satire or use a pseudonym/pen name – just avoid content that is likely to mislead readers about your true identity.
· Account Hijacking
Do not access another user’s account without their permission.

Do not create or use multiple accounts to evade our policies or bypass blocks or otherwise subvert restrictions placed on your account. For example, if you’ve been blocked or suspended for abuse, don’t create a replacement account that engages in similar activity.
