As a condition to your use of the Website, you agree to follow our Code of Conduct, set forth below. Under this Code, you agree that you will not, nor permit anyone else to, indirectly or directly:

  1. create duplicate accounts, or create an account for anyone other than yourself;
  2. use language that may be considered homophobic, transphobic, racist, sexist, bi-phobic, fat phobic, insults or excessive profanity, sexually explicit, or any other form of hate speech;
  3. upload, post, email, transmit or otherwise make available images or other User Content that you do not have a right to make available under any law or under contractual or fiduciary relationships (such as proprietary or confidential information learned or disclosed as part of employment relationships or under nondisclosure agreements), that is unlawful, obscene, harmful, hateful, invades the privacy of any third party, contains nudity or pornography or is otherwise objectionable and not youth-friendly;
  4. submit information that includes non-public personal or identifying information about another person, or otherwise disseminate materials that impact or invade the privacy of others, such as photographs, video clips, sound recordings, personally identifiable information, including phone numbers or usernames for other social media networking platforms, or other materials that reveal personal, private or sensitive information about another person, without that person’s explicit consent;
  5. upload, post, email, transmit or otherwise make available any User Content that infringes any patent, trademark, trade secret, copyright or other proprietary rights of any party, or depicts any unlawful conduct;
  6. restrict or inhibit any other visitor or member from using the Site, including, without limitation, by means of “hacking” or defacing any portion of the Site;
  7. access or attempt to access parts of the Site for which you are not authorized by the Trevor Project, circumvent or attempt to circumvent any security or password protection on the Site, access the Site by any means other than through the interface that is provided and authorized by the Trevor Project;
  8. modify any software for the Site in any manner or form, nor use modified versions of such software, including (without limitation) for the purpose of obtaining unauthorized access to the Site;
  9. use the Site or materials for any unlawful purpose;
  10. express or imply that any statements you make are endorsed by us, without our prior written consent;
  11. impersonate a person other than yourself or an entity, whether actual or fictitious, including any employee or representative of the Trevor Project;
  12. forge headers or otherwise manipulate identifiers in order to disguise the origin of any User Content transmitted through the Site;

  15. use the Site to harm any persons or entities in any way;
  16. use the Site in a manner that could disable, overburden or impair the Site or interfere with any other party's use and enjoyment of the Site, such as by engaging in “spamming” or “flooding”;
  17. transmit any software or other materials that contain any viruses, worms, Trojan horses, defects, date bombs, time bombs, cancelbots, or other items of a destructive nature or other computer-programming routines that are intended to damage, detrimentally interfere with, surreptitiously intercept or expropriate any system, data or personal information;
  18. modify, adapt, sublicense, translate, sell, test, reverse engineer, decompile or disassemble any portion of the Site or otherwise attempt to derive any source code or underlying ideas or algorithms of any part of the Site or otherwise take actions to find limitations, vulnerabilities or to evade filtering capabilities;

  23. harvest or collect information about Site visitors or members without their express consent;
  24. take any action that imposes or may impose (in the Trevor Project's sole discretion) an unreasonable or disproportionately large load of data, information, or queries on our (or our third-party providers’) infrastructure;
  25. share use of your password or use any passcode or password, regardless of whether or not such passcode or password is unique, to participate in any offer on the Site if you are not the original recipient of such passcode or password;
  26. seek to obtain access to any materials or information through "hacking", "data harvesting" or through other means we have not intentionally made available to you through the Site;
  27. provide material support or resources (or to conceal or disguise the nature, location, source, or ownership of material support or resources) to any organization(s) designated by the United States government as a foreign terrorist organization pursuant to Section 219 of the Immigration and Nationality Act; and/or
