Community Guidelines



Effective: 05.01.2021

In Brief: 

We want Epilogg to be an authentic, respectful, creative and safe place to share life stories of loved ones. Help us foster this community. Post only photos and videos you own and your own text and always follow the law. Respect everyone on Epilogg; don’t spam people or post nudity.

We created the Community Guidelines so you can help us foster and protect this amazing community. By using Epilogg, you agree to these guidelines and our Terms of Use. We’re committed to these guidelines and we hope you are too. Violating our guidelines may result in deleted content, disabled accounts, or other restrictions.

In Detail:

Share only photos and videos that you’ve taken or have the right to share.

As always, you own the content you post on Epilogg. Remember to post authentic content, and don’t post anything you’ve copied or collected from the Internet that you don’t have the right to post. Learn more about intellectual property rights in our Terms of Use.

Post photos and videos that are appropriate for a diverse audience

We know that there are times when people might want to share nude images that are artistic or creative in nature, but for a variety of reasons, we don’t allow nudity on Epilogg. 

Foster meaningful and genuine tributes.

Help us stay spam-free. Don’t create Epiloggs to sell products. When flagged, they will be removed. Do not post repetitive comments or content or contact people for commercial purposes. Don’t offer money or giveaways of money. Don’t post content that engages in, promotes, encourages, facilitates, or admits to the offering, solicitation or trade of fake and misleading user interactions.

Provide accurate information.

We require Epilogg users to provide us with accurate and up to date user information. Don’t impersonate others or create fake Epiloggs, and don’t create accounts for the purpose of violating our guidelines or misleading others.

Follow the law.

Epilogg is not a place to support or praise terrorism, organized crime, or hate groups. Offering sexual services, buying or selling firearms, alcohol, and tobacco products between private individuals, and buying or selling illegal or prescription drugs (even if legal in your region) are also not allowed. We have zero tolerance when it comes to threatening to post intimate images of others.

Respect other members of the Epilogg community.

We want to foster a positive, diverse community. We remove content that contains credible threats or hate speech, content that targets private individuals to degrade or shame them, personal information meant to blackmail or harass someone, and repeated unwanted messages. We do generally allow stronger conversation around people who are featured in the news or have a large public audience due to their profession or chosen activities. It’s never OK to encourage violence or attack anyone based on their race, ethnicity, national origin, sex, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, religious affiliation, disabilities, or diseases. When hate speech is being shared to challenge it or to raise awareness, we may allow it. In those instances, we ask that you express your intent clearly. Threats of harm to public and personal safety aren’t allowed. This includes specific threats of physical harm as well as threats of theft, vandalism, and other financial harm. 

Avoid Profane Language

Epilogg is a place for users to share memories of those they love. Users have a lot of freedom to tell stories. Profane language that is generally inoffensive to most readers may be allowed, but keeping in mind the ages of our users, we may prohibit the use of profanity on a case by case basis.

Maintain our supportive environment by not glorifying suicide.

The Epilogg community cares for each other and is often a place where people facing the loss of loved one come together to create awareness or find support. Encouraging or urging others to support suicide is counter to this environment of support, and we’ll remove it or disable accounts if it’s reported to us. We may also remove content identifying victims or survivors of suicide if the content targets them for attack or humor.

Be thoughtful when referencing news events.

We understand that life stories may involve news events.  Some of these issues can involve graphic images. Because so many different people and age groups use Epilogg, we will remove images of violence to make sure Epilogg stays appropriate for everyone.

Help us keep the community strong:

If you see something that you think may violate our guidelines, please help us by using our built-in reporting option. We have a team that reviews these reports and works as quickly as possible to remove content that doesn’t meet our guidelines. Even if you or someone you know doesn’t have an Epilogg account, you can still flag an Epilogg post for review. We may remove entire Epiloggs if either the imagery or text violate our guidelines. Requests for review without basis may result in account disabling or termination at our sole discretion.

Keep the peace:

An Epilogg you create may receive guestbook comments that you don’t like, but don’t violate the Community Guidelines. If there’s something you don’t like in a comment on one of your Epiloggs, you can delete that comment. Many disputes and misunderstandings can be resolved directly between members of the community. If one of your photos or videos was posted by someone else, you could try commenting on the Epilogg and asking the person to take it down. If that doesn’t work, you can file a copyright report as provided in our Terms of Use. If you believe someone is violating your trademark, you can flag the Epilogg and send us an email explaining the issue. Don’t target the person who posted it by drawing attention to the situation because that may be classified as harassment. We may work with law enforcement, including when we believe that there’s risk of physical harm or threat to public safety.

Thank you for helping us create a great community where we can honor the lives of our loved ones.
