Acceptable Use

Outpost Zebra tries its best to create a pleasant experience for all its users. As such we recommend a few guide lines in the form of these Terms of Service. By Acceptable Use we try to define behavior that will lead to the suspension or termination of your account.

  • Only upload content that you have created or have the right to use. If you attach an image to your User-Generated Content it is advised that you either have the permission to use the image or give proper credit to the artist or photographer. We recommend reading up on the concept of Fair Use in case of doubt. Outpost Zebra is a not for profit website so you have some room in using images. Copyrighted story content or plagiarism will not be tolerated. We will take down Copyrighted work without hesitation, repeated offenses may lead to the suspension or termination of your account.
  • Moderate your own content. Outpost Zebra as a service does not rate its content but we do draw the line at pornographic content. If your User-Generated Content is erotically themed that is fine by us. However pornography will not be tolerated. We do not care if your romantic angle is the love between a banana and a human or any other combination you can think of. You as the author have full creative freedom to express yourself as long as you do not cross the line into pornographic content. This applies to using an image to illustrate your story as well. Erotic is fine, pornographic is not. We expect our users to understand the difference and in the case of honest mistakes we will moderate the content. Repeated offenses may lead to the suspension or termination of your account.
  • Nudity in your member icon or on your profile page is not considered Acceptable Use. We believe in the principle of an honest mistake as such we will act accordingly. None the less repeated offense will lead to the suspension or termination of your account.
  • Outpost Zebra is not a platform to host or distribute illegal or prohibited content of any kind. Depending on the illegal content in question appropriate steps will be taken, which may include reporting you to the authorities and we will terminate your account.

We reserve the right to suspend or terminate your account at any time if your activity is deemed inappropriate. Outpost Zebra is a service run by reasonable people and we will always try to resolve conflicts before moving to account termination.
