Swedish Roads Principles
Last updated: 2 November 2020
As we drive together on the ~ Swedish Roads ~ we find it very important to respect each other.
Swedish Roads vision is to evolve the way people explore, discover and connect with Swedish businesses, brands, organizations and individuals. From the little communities, to the bigger cities
Swedish Roads exists to share Swedish places and among others Swedish stories, from everybody around the world. To maintain a safe and welcoming Swedish Roads environment for a wide range of people to engage in meaningful conversations, we prohibit certain conduct. Each participant in our community is responsible for maintaining these standards.
We do not allow content or actions that threaten, encourage, or incite violence against anyone, directly or indirectly.
We do not allow content that promotes violence or hatred against people based on characteristics like race, ethnicity, national origin, religion, disability, disease, age, sexual orientation, gender, or gender identity.
We do not allow posts or accounts that glorify, celebrate, downplay, or trivialize violence, suffering, abuse, or deaths of individuals or groups. This includes the use of scientific or pseudoscientific claims to pathologize, dehumanize, or disempower others. We do not allow calls for intolerance, exclusion, or segregation based on protected characteristics, nor do we allow the glorification of groups which do any of the above.
We do not allow hateful text, images, symbols, or other content in your username, profile, or bio.
Swedish Roads exists to share and discuss places & stories. We don’t tolerate harassment, which includes:
~ Bullying, threatening, or shaming someone, or posting things likely to encourage others to do so
~ Using Swedish Roads features like comments, reviews, stories or whichever listing or post, in a way intended to annoy or harass someone
~ Reviewing businesses, stories or products in a gratuitously harmful or abusive manner.
In addition to the above paragraph and reviewing businesses:
~ When you had a negative experience at one on the listed places at Swedish Roads, you can give them a 1-star review and still be respectful. Inform the listing-owner, why you gave them a 1-star rating, so they can improve from your input.
But also, the other way around. You gave a listing-owner a 5-star rating, but without further comments. Tell us, what you liked. In this way the listing-owner gets informed and also potential visitors.
We do not allow posts or accounts, that engage, are related to or associated with, in the following restricted categories of activity:
~ Promotion of sales of organized crime, terrorism, hate groups, political groups, legal or illegal drugs and firearms
~ Promotion of harmful conspiracies
~ Facilitation of gambling or betting
~ Facilitation of buying or selling social media interactions, including off-platform
~ Facilitation of illegal sexual services
~ Promotion of any other illegal or unsafe activity
~ Facilitation of copyright violation
We do not allow spam on Swedish Roads. All spam will be immediately removed from Swedish Roads, without notification. While it is hard to define this content with precision or completeness, trust us to be objective as possbile.
This is applicable for free, test and paid packages. In case of a paid package, we won’t refund you.
Respect the copyrights and trademarks of others. Unless you’re authorized to use someone else’s copyrighted work or trademark (either expressly or by legal exceptions and limitations like fair use), don’t do it.
We do not allow deceptive conduct on Swedish Roads. This includes:
~ Creating an account, username, or publication that posts content or impersonates a person or organization in a way likely to deceive people. When we find instances of this, we reserve the right to suspend your account pending investigation and verification.
~ Using Swedish Roads for phishing or fraud. Don’t use tags, links, titles, or other metadata in a misleading way. Don’t link to or embed malicious or harmful code or software in your posts.
~ Don’t use deception to generate revenue or traffic
~ Third-party advertising and sponsorships are not allowed. You may not advertise or promote third-party products, services, or brands through Swedish Roads listings, or stories. This includes images that indicate brand sponsorship in a post or letter, or as part of a publication name or logo.
~ Images functioning as third-party ads are not allowed. Inline images or embeds that link out and function as banner ads for third-party brands are not allowed.
We strive to be fair, but we reserve the right to suspend accounts or remove content, without notice, for any reason, particularly to protect our services, infrastructure, users, or community. If you attempt to evade suspension by creating new accounts or posts, we will suspend your new accounts and posts.
If Swedish Roads receives a request from a government actor to restrict access to content associated with your account, we will notify you unless we are prohibited by law or believe doing so may endanger others. Where applicable, we will work to limit legally-ordered content restrictions to jurisdictions where we have a good faith belief that we are legally required to restrict the content.
We may enforce, or not enforce, these policies at our sole discretion. These policies don’t create a duty or contractual obligation for us to act.
We also may change these rules at any time.
Swedish Roads is committed to providing their services as an transparent, open platform for promotion, collaboration, job-promotion, economic growth of business owners and free expression through among others stories.
If you find a listing, story or account on Swedish Roads that violates these principles, please report it to us. You can use the report-button, which you can find at every listing or story page in the top-menu below the photos.
