billions of people in the future to freely express themselves across countries and
cultures and in dozens of languages.
That’s why we recognize how important it is for Wafleries Products to be a place where
people feel empowered to communicate, connect, share, discover, educate, inform,
entertain, build communities and grow businesses. We take our role seriously in
keeping abuse off our service. That’s why we’ve developed a set of community
standard, that outline what is and is not allowed on Wafleries Products (except stated
otherwise on a particular product of ours). Our policies are based on feedback from our
community and the advice of experts in fields such as technology, public safety and
human rights. To ensure that everyone’s voice is valued, we take great care to craft
policies that are inclusive of different views and beliefs, in particular those of people
and communities that might otherwise be overlooked or marginalized.
REITERATING OUR COMMITMENT TO VOICE
The goal of our Community Standards has always been to create a place for expression
and give people a voice. This has not and will not change. To give everyone the power
to, have access to wide market for businesses, build communities and enjoy the
pleasure of communication & entertainment globally whereby bringing the world closer
together depends on people’s ability to share diverse views, experiences, ideas and
information. We want people to be able to talk openly about the issues that matter to
them, even if some may disagree or find them objectionable. In some cases, we allow
content for public awareness which would otherwise go against our Community
Standards – if it is newsworthy and in the public interest. We only do this after
weighing the public interest value against the risk of harm and we look to international
human rights standards to make these judgments. As such, we consider the
newsworthiness of content posted by anyone, including news organizations and
individual’s users. For example, if we allow content that graphically depicts war or the
consequences of war where it is important to public discourse.
Our commitment to expression is paramount, but we recognize that the Internet
creates new and increased opportunities for abuse. For these reasons, when we limit
expression, we do it in service of one or more of the following values:

Our Community Standards apply to everyone, all around the world, and to all types of
content. They’re designed to be comprehensive – for example, content that might not
be considered hateful may still be removed for violating a different policy. We recognize
that words mean different things or affect people differently depending on their local
community, language or background. We work hard to account for these nuances while
also applying our policies consistently and fairly to people and their expression. Our
enforcement of these standards relies on information available to us. In some cases,
this means that we may not detect content and behaviour that violates these standards,
and in others, enforcement may be limited to circumstances where we have been
provided with additional information and context. For Wafleries product

shops, groups, profiles, individual content and comments. We also give people control
over their own experience by allowing them to block unfollow or hide people and posts.
The consequences for violating our Community Standards vary depending on the
severity of the violation and the person’s history on the platform. For instance, we may
warn someone for a first violation, but if they continue to violate our policies, we may
restrict their ability to post on Wafleries product (Wafconnect) or disable their
profile. We may also notify law enforcement when we believe that there is a genuine
