We want our users to feel safe when sharing content on the Platform which is why we encourage you to let us know if any contents on the Platform (or re-posted content from the Platform) violate your privacy or sense of safety.
If someone posted your personal information without your knowledge (including in private or sensitive circumstances), ask the uploader to remove the content.

The DPO team will assess the case.
For content to be considered for removal an individual must be uniquely identifiable and that individual, or their legal representative, must submit the complaint. When assessing if an individual is uniquely identifiable, we consider the following factors:
-Image of voice.
-Other personally identifiable information.
(8) How you can protect your Privacy on the Platform
Think carefully before you share your content on the Platform. This includes for example where you live, your financial information, and your contact details.

Get permission first, before posting personal information of others.
