UE Comix Content Policy


UE COMIXTM supports creative freedom. From creators to illustrators to writers and fans, together, we are a collaboration of a very distinct and diverse community. We value the ideas, storytelling, creativity, and authenticity of our thriving community; however, sometimes our creative passion may push boundaries. As a platform, UE COMIXTM aims to deliver an open and safe environment for all creators and readers. Thus, to safeguard this ambition, we have outlined our community guidelines below.


Content Guidelines


Abusive Content


Abusive content or comment toward creators or other users is strictly prohibited. Abusive content is defined in this agreement as to any content or comment that promotes or encourages violence or has the primary purpose of inciting hatred towards individuals or groups based on race, ethnic origin, religion, disability, gender, age, veteran status, sexual orientation, gender identity, political orientation, etc. Abusive content can also include revealing an individual’s personal information (e.g. real name, contact information, address, social security numbers, or any other personally identifiable information). UE Comix has final determination on whether any content on the Service is abusive.


Mature or Sexual Content


Content that contains pornography, explicit scenes of nudity, sex, or sexual acts (as determined by UE Comix) is forbidden. Creators whose work involves sexual content are required to censor their content to conform to the community and uploading guidelines.


The ‘Mature Content Disclaimer’ feature is expected to be utilized to identify mature themes and content, which includes topics of sexuality. However, please understand that utilizing the ‘Mature Content Disclaimer’ feature does not mean that explicit nudity or sexual content is allowed on the UE COMIX platform.


Violent or Graphic Content


Content that contains graphic depictions of excessive violence and gore or content that promote acts of excessive violence (as determined by UE Comix) is not allowed.


Publishing on UE COMIX


UE COMIX is a self-publishing platform, where you can publish your comics, graphic novels, illustrations, and manga. When you post on UE COMIX, you will ALWAYS retain ownership over your work. You will own all of your intellectual property, and you can continue to promote your work on social media or other publishing platforms while utilizing the tools and resources offered by UE COMIX.

You are expected and therefore required to own all the rights to the uploaded content. Your content must not infringe on the copyright, trademark, publicity right of any other party or otherwise violate the UE Comix Terms of Service.

To help promote your series, UE COMIX may use your chapter/episode and/or series assets for promotional marketing purposes.


Copyright


Any and all acts of posting, distributing, or transmitting a third party’s copyrighted content without the copyright holder’s written consent are forbidden.


Spam and Advertising


You are not strictly prohibited to post unsolicited or unwanted content or links on the UE COMIX Platform. This includes the creation of profiles or uploading content with the principal purpose to drive traffic to external or alternative websites. The utilization of automated means to increase view counts or perform social interactions or creating multiple accounts to increase view counts or perform social interactions will result in account suspension or removal.


Reporting Inappropriate Content


Reporting Comments


To notify the Admin of inappropriate comments, the user must click on the “Report” link below every comment. The Admin will review the reported comment and remove any and all comments determined to be in violation of our guidelines. Users with multiple violations may be suspended or permanently blocked from commenting.


Reporting Series and Episodes


Located at the end of each chapter/episode is the “Report” button which is available for all users to notify the Admin of content that violates our community guidelines. Chapters/Episodes with multiple reports may be removed until further review by the Admin. In the event that the same chapter/episode or series receives repeated reports, and the Admin has determined that the report is justified, the chapter/episode or series may be removed, and the user will receive a warning regarding the inappropriate content.


In situations where the chapter/episode or series content is found to be excessively inappropriate or in the matter where the user has received multiple violations regarding the content, the Admin has the sole discretion to suspend and/or terminate the user’s account and access to the platform.


If your content has been removed due to policy violations, you may contact the Admin at admin@uecomix.net
