Objectionable Content

Hate Speech

Freelance Mantra defines hate speech as words or ideas that are designed to incite violence or hatred against a person, or group of people, defined on the basis of race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender, religion, age, disability, or other similar ground. We believe that the spread of hate speech online not only affects the groups or individuals that it targets, it also negatively impacts society in general, including those who speak out for freedom, tolerance, and non-discrimination.

While Freelance Mantra believes deeply in freedom of expression—which not only includes information or ideas that are perceived as positive, inoffensive, or neutral, but also expression that might seem offensive, shocking, or disturbing to some—we’re also committed to moving swiftly and aggressively to investigate conduct that has been flagged as hate speech, and will respond in a manner that is consistent with existing laws and the values of the company. 

We take hate speech violations very seriously, and anyone using hate speech towards another user or towards our customer support representatives will be removed from Freelance Mantra. We will also take action against any user asking or delivering hate speech related content on Freelance Mantra.

Do not:

  • Use violent or dehumanising speech against a person or group of people defined on the basis of race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender, religion, age, disability, or other similar ground. 
  • Publish, offer or ask for any content that expresses or supports discriminatory ideas. 
  • Offer or ask for the writing or editing of texts that supports discriminatory behavior and ideas.

We do allow people to offer or ask for content regarding the research of hate-speech or content that is related to the prevention of hate-speech.

Discrimination

Under Freelance Mantra community standards, discrimination means unfair or unequal treatment of an individual or group based on age, disability, ethnicity, gender, marital status, race, religion, and sexual orientation.

Freelance Mantra will investigate claims of discrimination on a case-by-case basis, and defend protected groups whenever possible.

Do not:

  • Express your unwillingness to work with a person or a group of people based on age, disability, ethnicity, gender, marital status, race, religion, sexual orientation, or other similar ground.
  • Publish, offer or ask for any content that expresses or supports discriminatory ideas. 
  • Offer or ask for the writing or editing of texts that support discriminatory  ideas or practices.

Adult, Nudity and Sexual Activity

Explicit content meant to be sexually gratifying is not allowed on Freelance Mantra. If detected or reported, sexually explicit content will be blocked and participants could be banned from the marketplace. Services and deliveries portraying violent, graphic, or humiliating fetishes are also not allowed. 

Sexually explicit content featuring minors and content that seeks to sexually exploit minors is prohibited on Freelance Mantra. We immediately report content that violates this policy to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, who work with global law enforcement agencies.

Documentary Exception

Freelance Mantra will allow nudity when the primary purpose is educational, scientific, or artistic, and it isn’t gratuitous. For example, a video edit ordered by a midwife depicting proper breastfeeding technique would be appropriate, while creating a video with clips from the same film but used out of context for the purpose of sexual gratification, would not. Out-of-context nudity from indigenous communities, protests, medical procedures, childbirth, artistic performances, breastfeeding or like, may not meet our documentary exception. 

Do not post, offer or ask for:

  • Nude or adult related images or videos.
  • Sex or sexual partners.
  • Sex chats or conversations.
  • The execution of fetish scenarios.
  • Sexually gratifying modeling.
  • Content that depicts explicit sexual activity, unless the conditions for “documentary exception,” as listed above, exist.

Freelance Mantra will act quickly to block transactions that features child nudity and will flag the offending account for review.
