Terms of Use

To protect the privacy and safety of individuals, it is strictly prohibited to post or share other people’s personal information on ProdigyBuild. This includes:

  1. Personal and private email addresses.
  2. Phone numbers.
  3. Physical addresses or any private location information.
  4. Bank account details or credit card numbers.
  5. Social Security or National Identity numbers.
  6. Passwords.
  7. Voter information.
  8. Medical information and personal biometric data.
  9. Any other private information that may pose a safety or security risk.

In addition, we consider the unauthorized distribution or use of photos or videos without the subject’s consent as an invasion of privacy, especially if it poses a safety risk to the individual, such as in cases of intimidation or harassment.

While we take context into account and consider whether the reported content is publicly available elsewhere, it’s important to note that sharing publicly available content may still be a violation of our policies if it is done with the intent to harass or incite abusive behavior, which would be in violation of our prohibition against bullying and harassment.

We encourage users to report any instances of personal information sharing or privacy violations they come across, and we will take appropriate action to address such violations.

At ProdigyBuild, we have a zero-tolerance policy for any form of speech that targets or encourages hate towards individuals or groups based on their personal characteristics, such as age, body size, ability, ethnicity, gender identity and expression, level of experience, nationality, personal appearance, race, religion, sexual identity, or sexual orientation. This includes:

  1. Mocking, attacking, or excluding individuals or groups based on their beliefs or the aforementioned characteristics.
  2. Displaying clear association or support for known terrorist or violent extremist organizations.
  3. Endorsing or propagating hate groups or hate-driven conspiracy theories.
  4. Sharing symbols or images associated with hate.
  5. Using harmful stereotypes, slurs, or dehumanizing language.
  6. Targeting individuals based on perceived gender.
  7. Engaging in dog whistling, which involves using coded or suggestive language and symbols to promote abuse or hate.

While we take all instances of abuse and harassment on our platform seriously, we are particularly committed to combating hate-based abuse that disproportionately affects communities historically targeted by such behavior. Our goal is to foster an inclusive and safe environment on ProdigyBuild where everyone feels welcome.

We encourage users to report any instances of hate speech or abusive behavior they encounter, and we will take appropriate action to address such violations of our policies.

The use of ProdigyBuild to organize, promote, encourage, threaten, or incite acts of violence is strictly prohibited. Posting content that depicts or glorifies violence or physical harm against humans or animals is also not allowed. This includes:

  1. Threatening individuals or groups with abuse, harm, sexual violence, or death.
  2. Sharing text, imagery, or audio content that glorifies violence or contains graphic depictions of violence towards oneself, others, groups, or animals.
  3. Encouraging others to engage in self-harm.

We do not permit the indiscriminate posting of violent content or its placement in areas that make it difficult for other users to avoid, such as profile avatars or issue comments. However, we acknowledge that there may be valid reasons to share violent content, such as for educational or documentary purposes, creative works, or depictions of historical events. In such cases, providing a clear warning or disclaimer can help users make an informed decision about engaging with the content. Nevertheless, ProdigyBuild reserves the right to limit the visibility of such content to those who actively choose to opt-in.

Our aim is to maintain a safe and respectful environment for all users while allowing for appropriate and lawful expression.

We have a zero-tolerance policy when it comes to content associated with sexual exploitation or abuse of individuals, especially minors. We strictly prohibit sexually themed or suggestive content that serves little to no purpose other than to elicit an erotic or shocking response, particularly when such content is amplified through its placement in profiles or other social contexts. This includes:

  1. Pornographic content.
  2. Non-consensual intimate imagery.
  3. Graphic depictions of sexual acts, including photographs, videos, animations, drawings, computer-generated images, or text-based content.

We acknowledge that not all nudity or content related to sexuality is obscene. In certain contexts, such as artistic, educational, historical, or journalistic purposes, or when it relates to victim advocacy, visual and/or textual depictions may be allowed. In some cases, providing a disclaimer can help communicate the context of the project. However, please note that we may choose to limit access to such content by giving users the option to opt-in before viewing.

Our goal is to maintain a safe and respectful environment for all users while allowing for appropriate and lawful expression.

It is not permitted to post content on the platform that presents a distorted view of reality, whether it is inaccurate or false information (misinformation) or intentionally deceptive (disinformation). Such content, if likely to result in harm to the public or hinder fair and equal participation in a free and open society, is strictly prohibited. This includes:

  1. Sharing inaccurate or scientifically unsupported medical claims that pose a risk to public health or safety.
  2. Distributing manipulated media, including audio or visual content, that is likely to mislead or deceive and may harm the public interest.
  3. Posting false or misleading content that is likely to hinder an individual’s ability to engage in civic activities.
  4. Making unsubstantiated claims that could promote hate or targeted harassment against specific groups of people.

We encourage active participation in expressing ideas, perspectives, and personal experiences. While we may not always be able to verify personal accounts or observations, we generally permit parody and satire that align with our Acceptable Use Policies. Context plays a crucial role in how information is received and understood. When reviewing content under this policy, GitHub takes into consideration various factors that may help provide orientation to viewers. These factors include clear disclaimers, citations to credible sources, and other details that clarify the accuracy of the shared information.

Please note that the intention behind this policy is to promote a safe and reliable platform for all users.

  3. Adopting a username, organization name, or other namespace that closely resembles and may cause confusion with an existing user or organization.
  4. Gaining unauthorized access to an account or organization by using another user’s token or credentials.
  5. Assuming the identity of another individual or organization in any manner.

Impersonation is considered a form of harassment, and any violation of this policy may result in the loss of access to your account.
