3. Be cool and play nice.
The Internet is a pretty cool place, but it also gives people the means to insult and/or harass others without taking full responsibility for their words. We insist that while you are on Unimundo you respect the people you encounter, as well as their videos. You are free to disagree and/or provide critical feedback, but please keep it respectful.
Upload only videos you created yourself.

Please add your role in the video description to avoid deletion. Exception! Members can upload videos they did not create as long as they hold the necessary verifiable rights and permissions.

10. Respect Copyright and Trademark.
Only upload videos that you made or that you are authorized to use. This means do not upload videos you didn't make, or use content in your videos that someone else owns the copyright to, such as music tracks, snippets of copyrighted programs, or videos made by other users, without necessary authorizations. Read our Copyright Tips for more information.
We encourage free speech and defend everyone's right to express unpopular points of view. But we do not permit hate speech; speech which attacks or demeans a group based on race or ethnic origin, religion, disability, gender, age, veteran status, and sexual orientation and/or gender identity.
Everyone hates spam. Do not create misleading descriptions, tags, titles or thumbnails in order to increase views.
It is not okay to post large amounts of untargeted, unwanted or repetitive content, including comments and private messages.
Please take these rules seriously and take them to heart. Do not try to look for loopholes or try to lawyer your way around the guidelines—just understand them and try to respect the spirit in which they were created.
Want a little more insight into the limits and exceptions in the Community Guidelines? Here are some helpful examples and tips:
11. Sex and Nudity
Most nudity is not allowed, particularly if it is in a sexual context. Generally if a video is intended to be sexually provocative, it is less likely to be acceptable for Unimundo. There are exceptions for some educational, documentary, scientific, and artistic content, but only if that is the sole purpose of the video and it is not gratuitously graphic. For example, a documentary on breast cancer would be appropriate, but posting clips out of context from the documentary might not be.
12. Hate Speech
Hate speech refers to content that promotes hatred against members of a protected group. For instance, racist or sexist content may be considered hate speech. Sometimes there is a fine line between what is and what is not considered hate speech. For instance, it is generally okay to criticize a nation, but not okay to make insulting generalizations about people of a particular nationality.
13. Shocking and Disgusting
The world is a dangerous place. Sometimes people do get hurt and it’s inevitable that these events may be documented on Unimundo. However, it’s not okay to post violent or gory content that’s primarily intended to be shocking, sensational or disrespectful. If a video is particularly graphic or disturbing, it should be balanced with additional context and information. For instance, including a clip from a slaughter house in a video on factory farming may be appropriate. However, stringing together unrelated and gruesome clips of animals being slaughtered in a video may be considered gratuitous if its purpose is to shock rather than illustrate.
14. Dangerous Illegal Acts
While it might not seem fair to say you ca not show something because of what viewers theoretically might do in response, we draw the line at content that’s intended to incite violence or encourage dangerous, illegal activities that have an inherent risk of serious physical harm or death. This means not posting videos on things like instructional bomb making, ninja assassin training, sniper attacks, videos that train terrorists, or tips on illegal street racing. Any depictions like these should be educational or documentary and shouldn’t be designed to help or encourage others to imitate them.
Children Videos involving children, meaning anyone under the age of 18 are particularly sensitive. Videos containing children should never be sexually suggestive or violent. Please be cautious when posting something involving a child. If you’re sharing a private moment or home movie, consider making it a private video so that only your family and friends can see it.
15. Copyright and Trademarks
Privacy If a video you've recorded features people who are readily identifiable and who have not consented to being filmed, there is a chance they will file a Privacy Complaint seeking its removal. We will notify you if that happens and give you a chance to edit and re-upload your video before we act on the complaint. If we do remove your video for privacy reasons, do not upload another version featuring the same people. Chances are those people will file another privacy complaint or report you for harassment. Do not post other people's personal information, including phone numbers, addresses, credit card numbers, and government IDs. We are serious about keeping our users safe and suspend accounts that violate people's privacy.
Harassment It comes down to respect. Unimundo is all about sharing and interacting with the community in respectful ways. If you are not sure whether a video or comment you have made crosses the line, follow a simple rule of thumb: if you wouldn't say it to someone's face, do not say it on Unimundo. And if you're looking to attack, harass, demean, or impersonate others, go elsewhere.
Impersonation Impersonating another user by copying someone's exact channel layout, using a similar username, or posing as that person in comments, emails or videos is considered harassment. If you want to keep your account, stay away from participating in any form of impersonation or harassing activity on the site.
16. Threats against others
Users should not feel threatened when they are on Unimundo. Period. Do not leave threaten or leave threatening comments on other people's videos and or accounts. We will cancel your account immediately.
