Managing User Generated Content

Koo App is a microblogging platform which enables interaction and connection between users from multiple languages. Koo App contains a large amount of User Generated Content and the team places utmost importance on the safety of its users. Koo already implements and will continue to implement policies and features to provide a safe experience.

In relation to User Generated Content (UGC) Koo has clear Community Guidelines & Terms of Service which define and prohibit objectionable content.

As a general rule, Koo prohibits posting of any content that is deliberately offensive, insensitive, upsetting, intended to disgust or in exceptionally poor taste. Koo specifically prohibits users from posting  defamatory or inflammatory or inaccurate or discriminatory content, relating to religion, race, sexual orientation, gender, national/ethnic origin, or other targeted groups. 

Koo implements its Community Guidelines and Terms of Service in line with the legal definitions of the jurisdiction where content is visible. We believe that nations know their cultural and legal context better than a platform and therefore content must be evaluated in line with these local legal requirements. 

We believe it is disrespectful to create your own legal structures based on a superficial understanding of a country’s context. Koo cannot and does not deem something illegal if a country’s laws do not state so and vice versa.
