Carets

Create, share, and combine video content.

What we see with ^Carets is extraordinary.

^Carets – Community Guidelines

The ^Carets™ platform is a family friendly service model designed to enable our users to easily generate video content using handheld devices and posting this content to the app. The app is designed to aggregate videos from multiple users for concurrent and simultaneous viewing. The content you have generated may be viewed with other user’s content enabling a different perspective; this combined video is what we call a ^Carets Video™.

^Carets Community Guidelines

The Carets community is intended to enable user to be creative in developing content and sharing with fellow users of the platform. Carets potential is only gated by the creativity and imagination of its users. The platform is intended to be a family friendly and we ask that you help us accomplish this vision by creating and posting content that aligns with this intent.

As with all good plans there are usually groups and individuals who have a different set of values and will attempt to abuse the system. We ask for your help to notify us if content appears to be out of line by reporting issues through the website.

Common Sense and General Guidelines

This is a family friend site; the following are examples of unacceptable content and violation of these common sense rules may result in removal of your account and content. In cases where videos containing illegal activities are uploaded to the site and it is reported by other users this content and associated user account information will be issued to the appropriate authorities.

  • Nudity or Sexual Content: This includes pornography or sexually explicit content.
  • Harmful or Dangerous Content: Any content that encourages others to do things that may be harmful to themselves or to others.
  • Violent or Graphic Content: There are two types of content; anything that is intended to sensational or disrespectful is inappropriate. Content that could be found on the news or presented in a manner consistent with a documentary may be deemed acceptable. In the latter case please provide audible narrative providing context as you create content.
  • Hateful Content: This includes derogatory or inflammatory content that is intended to degrade or condones violence towards individuals or groups based on race, ethnicity, religion, or sexual orientation.
  • Threats: This includes anything that could be represented as threatening to individuals or groups. The Carets platform is not intended to be used for bullying, stalking, harassment, invading privacy, or predatory behaviors.
  • Misrepresentations, Spam, and Trolling: Please refrain from misrepresentation, spamming, and trolling various users. This also includes creating content and misleading users with headlines and titles that do not align with the intentions.
  • Copyright: Please respect copyrights and be mindful that pre-recorded content and images may be copyrighted and that redistribution may not be allowed or licensed.

We review reports from the website carefully. In the event that content is considered inappropriate, and Carets reserves the right to be the final judge in such decisions, that content may be removed from viewers and accounts may be permanently deactivated.
