Adult nudity and sexual activities

We do not allow sexually explicit or gratifying content on TaDaah, including animated content of this nature. Sexualized content carries many risks, such as triggering legal penalties in some jurisdictions and causing harm to our users through sharing non-consensual imagery (for example, revenge porn). Also, overtly sexual content can be offensive within certain cultures. We do allow exceptions around nudity and sexually explicit content for educational, documentary, scientific, or artistic purposes. For example, content discussing or showing mastectomy scars is allowed.

Harassment and bullying

We have zero tolerance for bullying or harassment of any kind. Don’t make a post with the intention of making someone feel bad. If someone blocks you, don’t try to contact them from another account. Don’t take photos of people in private spaces without their knowledge and consent. If someone is in your post and asks you to remove it, please do!

 

Users should feel safe to express themselves without fear of being shamed, humiliated, bullied, or harassed. We deeply understand the psychological distress that abusive content can have on individuals, and we do not tolerate abusive content or behavior on our platform.

Infringement of others' privacy

Revealing or threatening to reveal personally identifiable information can cause serious emotional distress and lead to real-world harm. We consider it a form of abuse and do not allow it on TaDaah.


Do not post: 

  • Content that reveals or threatens to reveal personally identifiable information, including but not limited to residential address, private email address, private phone number, bank statement, social security number, or passport number

TADA Towns is transforming the very business model of local advertising. By injecting technology and transparency into an industry that often lacks both, we’re creating a new type of digital advertising that is fast, fair and fun.

 

Unlike companies that get paid by click, impression, video viewed, etc., we take a flat fee. Most importantly, we created a platform where your local brand can reward (and, eventually, pay) the most efficient and credible advertiser the world has ever known for word of mouth marketing – your customers.
