8. Termination

        Teverse reserves the right to terminate any account at ANY time with or without warning. All terminations can be appealed by emailing an appeal to [email protected] with the subject heading:  “TERMINATION APPEAL FOR ACCOUNT: [ACCOUNT NAME]”. Appealing a termination DOES NOT guarantee that the account will be restored. In addition to termination,  Teverse may enforce other moderations techniques on accounts that are found to be violating the rules of Teverse.

Teverse may delete any asset uploaded if it contains NSFW (not safe for work) content, violates copyright laws, or breaks any other rule contained in the Terms of Service. This list of reasons for content to be deleted is not exclusive. Any content uploaded to Teverse may be deleted at ANY time, for ANY reason, with or without warning. If you feel that something was deleted without proper cause, it may be re-uploaded, however, it may be deleted again. Constant re-uploading of deleted content may result in a temporary ban from the Teverse website.

Teverse may warn users for breaking the Terms of Service. Should this occur, the user’s account will be logged out, and a warning will appear the next time the user log in to their account. In order to regain access to your account, the user must affirm that they understand the Terms and Conditions. If the user believes this warning to be inaccurate, they may submit an appeal to [email protected] with the subject heading: “WARNING APPEAL FOR ACCOUNT: [ACCOUNT NAME]”. Appealing a warning does not guarantee that the warning will be removed from the account’s moderation history.

Teverse may temporarily ban users that violate the Terms of Service. Teverse bans may last 1 day, 3 days, 5 days, 1 week, or 2 weeks. When a Teverse termination is issued to a user’s account, the account is immediately restricted from the whole site. Teverse may or may not use the ban times listed in order of increasing severity. User’s accounts can be banned at any time for any of the previously mentioned lengths of times, depending on the severity of the offense and past moderation history. Users with a long list of moderation history are more likely to be banned for longer periods of time than users with no moderation history. Additionally, users with a long moderation history are more likely to be terminated for an offense that would receive a temporary ban if committed by another user. If a user feels that their ban was inaccurate, they may submit an appeal to [email protected] with the subject heading: “BAN APPEAL | [BAN LENGTH] FOR ACCOUNT: [ACCOUNT NAME]”. Appealing a temporary ban does not guarantee that the ban will be lifted and removed from the account’s moderation history.

Appeals process:

  1. Appeals may only be made for the above moderations that acknowledge appeals.
  2. Appeals must have the proper header in order to be looked at in a timely manner. Appeals with improper subject headers may be ignored or will be added to the end of the queue.
  3. Users may NOT appeal the same offense more than once. Doing so may result in another moderation event.
  4. Appeals must be sent to [email protected] within 1 month of the moderation event. This means that users have 30 days, from the time of login, to appeal their moderation. Appeals sent after 30 days will be ignored.
  5. Appealing a moderation event does not guarantee that the event will be removed from the user’s moderation history. Teverse reserves the right to deny any appeal. Users will be notified if an appeal is accepted or denied. If an appeal is denied, an explanation may be provided, but is not required.
