Although this information may at times include your IP address, this information, by itself, will typically not identify you. However, if you access the Website from a link in an email that we sent you, we may identify you based on the information you previously supplied to us.
Session and First Party Cookies
The types of cookies that we use are referred to as “session” cookies and “first-party” cookies. Session cookies are temporary and are automatically deleted once you close your Internet browser. First Party cookies remain on your computer hard drive until you delete them or until they are otherwise removed upon expiration.
We may gather information about you automatically through your use of the Website or e.g., your IP address, your current location when you use them, and how you navigate the Website. We may collect information by automated means, including technologies such as pixel tags, browser analysis tools, server logs, and web beacons. We use this information to better understand, customize, and improve user experience with our Website, Services, and offerings as well as to manage our advertising.
Pixel tags and web beacons are tiny graphic images placed on website pages or in emails that allow us to determine whether you have performed a specific action. When you access these pages or open or click an email, the pixel tags and web beacons generate a notice of that action. These tools allow us to measure response to our communications and improve our web pages.
We collect many different types of information from other technologies to improve the quality of our website and the services we provide. For example, we may collect information about the device you use to access our website or your operating system and/or mobile device type, browser type, domain, and other system settings, as well as the language your system uses and the country and time zone where your device is located. We may record the IP address of the device you use to connect to the Internet. An IP address is a unique identifier that devices use to identify and communicate with each other on the Internet.
In many cases, the information we collect using cookies and other tools is only used in a non-identifiable way, without any reference to your Personal Information. For example, we use the information we collect about all website users to optimize our website and to understand website traffic patterns. We may aggregate the data about visitors to our website or use it to improve the quality of our website and Services. If we do associate the information, we collect using cookies and other technology with your Personal Information, then it will become “Personal Information” and will be protected as described above.

Violence and Incitement
We aim to prevent potential offline harm that may be related to content on Fusion Now.

We also try to consider the language and context in order to distinguish casual statements from content that constitutes a credible threat to public or personal safety. In determining whether a threat is credible, we may also consider additional information like a person’s public visibility and the risks to their physical safety. In some cases, we see aspirational or conditional threats directed at terrorists and other violent actors (e.g. Terrorists deserve to be killed), and we deem those non credible absent specific evidence to the contrary.

Suicide and Self-Injury
To promote a safe environment on Fusion Now, we remove content that encourages suicide or self-injury, including certain graphic imagery, real-time depictions, and fictional content that experts tell us might lead others to engage in similar behavior. Self-injury is defined as the intentional and direct injuring of the body, including self-mutilation, and eating disorders. We want Fusion Now to be a space where people can share their experiences, raise awareness about these issues, and seek support from one another, which is why we allow people to discuss suicide and self-injury.
We work with organizations around the world to aid people in distress. We also talk to experts in suicide and self-injury to help inform our policies and enforcement. For example, we have been advised by experts that we should not remove live videos of self-injury while there is an opportunity for loved ones and authorities to provide help or resources.
In contrast, we remove any content that identifies and negatively targets victims or survivors of self-injury or suicide seriously, humorously, or rhetorically.
Do Not Post
Content that promotes, encourages, coordinates, or provides instructions for:
Content that depicts graphic self-injury imagery
Except in limited situations of newsworthiness, it is against our policies to post content depicting a person who engaged in a suicide attempt or death by suicide

Child Sexual Exploitation, Abuse and Nudity
We do not allow content that sexually exploits or endangers children. When we become aware of apparent child exploitation, we report it to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC), in compliance with applicable law. We know that sometimes people share nude images of their own children with good intentions; however, we generally remove these images because of the potential for abuse by others and to help avoid the possibility of other people reusing or misappropriating the images.

Sexual Exploitation of Adults
We recognize the importance of Fusion Now as a place to discuss and draw attention to sexual violence and exploitation. We believe this is an important part of building common understanding and community. To create space for this conversation while promoting a safe environment, we remove content that depicts, threatens, or promotes sexual violence, sexual assault, or sexual exploitation, while also allowing space for victims to share their experiences. We remove content that displays, advocates for, or coordinates sexual acts with non-consenting parties or commercial sexual services, such as prostitution and escort services. We do this to avoid facilitating transactions that may involve trafficking, coercion, and non-consensual sexual acts. To protect victims and survivors, we also remove images that depict incidents of sexual violence and intimate images shared without permission from the people pictured.
Do Not Post

Bullying and Harassment
Bullying and harassment happen in many places and come in many different forms, from making threats to releasing personally identifiable information, to sending threatening messages, and making unwanted malicious contact. We do not tolerate this kind of behavior because it prevents people from feeling safe and respected on Fusion Now.
We distinguish between public figures and private individuals because we want to allow discussion, which often includes critical commentary of people who are featured in the news or who have a large public audience. For public figures, we remove attacks that are severe as well as certain attacks where the public figure is directly tagged in the post or comment. For private individuals, our protection goes further: we remove content that is meant to degrade or shame, including, for example, claims about someone’s sexual activity. We recognize that bullying and harassment can have more of an emotional impact on minors, which is why our policies provide heightened protection for users between the ages of 13 and 18.
Context and intent matter, and we allow people to share and re-share posts if something was shared to condemn or draw attention to bullying and harassment. In certain instances, we require self-reporting because it helps us understand that the person targeted feels bullied or harassed.

After consulting with outside experts from around the world, we are consolidating several existing exploitation policies that were previously housed in different sections of the Community Standards into one dedicated section that focuses on human exploitation and captures a broad range of harmful activities that may manifest on our platform. Experts think and talk about these issues under one umbrella — human exploitation.
To disrupt and prevent harm, we remove content that facilitates or coordinates the exploitation of humans, including human trafficking. We define human trafficking as the business of depriving someone of liberty for profit. It is the exploitation of humans to force them to engage in commercial sex, labor, or other activities against their will. It relies on deception, force, and coercion, and degrades humans by depriving them of their freedom while economically or materially benefiting others.
Human trafficking is multi-faceted and global; it can affect anyone regardless of age, socioeconomic background, ethnicity, gender, or location. It takes many forms, and any given trafficking situation can involve various stages of development. By the coercive nature of this abuse, victims cannot consent.
While we need to be careful not to conflate human trafficking and smuggling, the two can be related and exhibit overlap. The United Nations defines human smuggling as the procurement or facilitation of illegal entry into a state across international borders. Without necessity for coercion or force, it may still result in the exploitation of vulnerable individuals who are trying to leave their country of origin, often in pursuit of a better life. Human smuggling is a crime against a state, relying on movement, and human trafficking is a crime against a person, relying on exploitation.

Forced Criminal Activity (e.g., forced begging, forced drug trafficking)
Recruitment of Child Soldiers

Recruitment of potential victims through force, fraud, coercion, enticement, deception, blackmail or other non-consensual acts.
Facilitation of human exploitation by coordinating, transporting, transferring, harboring or brokering of victims prior or during the exploitation.
Exploitation of humans by promoting, depicting, or advocating for it.
Content that offers or assists in smuggling of humans
Privacy Violations and Image Privacy Rights
Privacy and the protection of personal information are fundamentally important values for Fusion Now. We work hard to keep your account secure and safeguard your personal information in order to protect you from potential physical or financial harm. You should not post personal or confidential information about others without first getting their consent. We also provide people ways to report imagery that they believe to be in violation of their privacy rights.

We do not allow hate speech on Fusion Now because it creates an environment of intimidation and exclusion and in some cases may promote real-world violence.
We define hate speech as a direct attack on people based on what we call protected characteristics — race, ethnicity, national origin, religious affiliation, sexual orientation, caste, sex, gender, gender identity, and serious disease or disability. We protect against attacks based on age when age is paired with another protected characteristic and provide certain protections for immigration status. We define attack as violent or dehumanizing speech, harmful stereotypes, statements of inferiority, or calls for exclusion or segregation. We separate attacks into three tiers of severity, as described below.
Sometimes people share content containing someone else’s hate speech for the purpose of raising awareness or educating others. In some cases, words or terms that might otherwise violate our standards are used self-referentially or in an empowering way. People sometimes express contempt in the context of a romantic break-up. Other times, they use gender-exclusive language to control membership in a health or positive support group, such as a breastfeeding group for women only. In all of these cases, we allow the content but expect people to clearly indicate their intent, which helps us better understand why they shared it. Where the intention is unclear, we may remove the content.
In addition, we believe that people are more responsible when they share this kind of commentary using their authentic identity.

We remove content that glorifies violence or celebrates the suffering or humiliation of others because it may create an environment that discourages participation. We allow graphic content (with some limitations) to help people raise awareness about issues. We know that people value the ability to discuss important issues like human rights abuses or acts of terrorism. We also know that people have different sensitivities with regard to graphic and violent content. For that reason, we add a warning label to especially graphic or violent content so that it is not available to people under the age of eighteen and so that people are aware of the graphic or violent nature before they click to see it.

Adult Nudity and Sexual Activity
We restrict the display of nudity or sexual activity because some people in our community may be sensitive to this type of content. Additionally, we default to removing sexual imagery to prevent the sharing of non-consensual or underage content. Restrictions on the display of sexual activity also apply to digitally created content unless it is posted for educational, humorous, or satirical purposes.
Our nudity policies have become more nuanced over time. We understand that nudity can be shared for a variety of reasons, including as a form of protest, to raise awareness about a cause, or for educational or medical reasons. Where such intent is clear, we make allowances for the content. For example, while we restrict some images of female breasts that include the nipple, we allow other images, including those depicting acts of protest, women actively engaged in breast-feeding, and photos of post-mastectomy scarring. We also allow photographs of paintings, sculptures, and other art that depicts nude figures.
Do Not Post
Real nude adults, where nudity is defined as
Visible genitalia except in the context of birth giving and after-birth moments or health-related situations (for example, gender confirmation surgery, examination for cancer or disease prevention/assessment)
Visible anus and/or fully nude close-ups of buttocks unless photoshopped on a public figure
Uncovered female nipples except in the context of breastfeeding, birth giving and after-birth moments, health-related situations (for example, post-mastectomy, breast cancer awareness or gender confirmation surgery) or an act of protest
Sexual activity, including
Explicit sexual intercourse, defined as mouth or genitals entering or in contact with another person’s genitals or anus, where at least one person’s genitals are nude
Implied sexual intercourse, defined as mouth or genitals entering or in contact with another person’s genitals or anus, even when the contact is not directly visible, except in cases of a sexual health context, advertisements, and recognized fictional images or with indicators of fiction
Implied stimulation of genitalia/anus, defined as stimulating genitalia/anus or inserting objects into genitalia/anus, even when the activity is not directly visible, except in cases of sexual health context, advertisements, and recognized fictional images or with indicators of fiction
Other sexual activities including (but not limited to)
Presence of by-products of sexual activity
Stimulating genitals or anus, even if above or under clothing
Use of sex toys, even if above or under clothing

Acts that are likely to lead to the death of a person or animal

Content where the sexual activity (intercourse or other sexual activities) is not directly visible
Content was posted in a satirical or humorous context
Content was posted in an educational or scientific context
Imagery is not sufficiently detailed and only body shapes or contours are visible
As noted in Section 8 of our Community Standards (Sexual Exploitation of Adults), people use Fusion Now to discuss and draw attention to sexual violence and exploitation. We recognize the importance of and want to allow for this discussion. We draw the line, however, when content facilitates, encourages, or coordinates sexual encounters between adults. We also restrict sexually explicit language that may lead to solicitation because some audiences within our global community may be sensitive to this type of content, and it may impede the ability of people to connect with their friends and the broader community.
Do Not Post
Attempted coordination of or recruitment for adult sexual activities, including but not limited to:
Filmed sexual activities
Pornographic activities, strip club shows, live sex performances, erotic dances
Sexual, erotic, or tantric massages
Explicit sexual solicitation by, including but not limited to the following, offering or asking for:
Sex or sexual partners
Sex chat or conversations
Content that is implicitly or indirectly offering or asking for sexual solicitation and meets both of the following criteria. If both criteria are not met, it is not deemed to be violating. For example, if content is a hand-drawn image depicting sexual activity but does not ask or offer sexual solicitation, it is not violating:
Criteria 1: Offer or Ask
Content implicitly or indirectly* (typically through providing a method of contact) offers or asks for:
Nude imagery, or
Sex or sexual partners, or
Sex chat conversations
Criteria 2: Suggestive Elements
Content makes the aforementioned offer or ask using one of the following sexually suggestive elements:
Contextually specific and commonly sexual emojis or emoji strings, or
Regional sexualized slang, or
Mentions or depictions of sexual activity (including hand drawn, digital, or real-world art) such as: sexual roles, sex positions, fetish scenarios, state of arousal, act of sexual intercourse or activity (sexual penetration or self-pleasuring), or
Imagery of real individuals with nudity covered by human parts, objects, or digital obstruction, including long shots of fully nude butts
An offer or ask for pornographic material (including, but not limited to, sharing of links to external pornographic websites)
Sexually explicit language that goes into graphic detail beyond mere reference to:
A state of sexual arousal (wetness or erection) or
An act of sexual intercourse (sexual penetration, self-pleasuring or exercising fetish scenarios)
We believe that people share and connect more freely when they do not feel targeted based on their vulnerabilities. As such, we have higher expectations for content that we call cruel and insensitive, which we define as content that targets victims of serious physical or emotional harm.
We remove explicit attempts to mock victims and mark as cruel implicit attempts, many of which take the form of memes and GIFs.
Do Not Post
Content that depicts real people and laughs at or makes fun of their serious physical injury, starvation, or serious or fatal disease or disability.
Content that contains sadistic remarks and any visual or written depiction of real people experiencing premature death, serious physical injury, physical violence or domestic violence.

serious physical injury (including mutilation)
physical violence from a human
Integrity and Authenticity
Authenticity is the cornerstone of our community. We believe that people are more accountable for their statements and actions when they use their authentic identities. That’s why we require people to connect on Fusion Now using the name they go by in everyday life. Our authenticity policies are intended to create a safe environment where people can trust and hold one another accountable.

Posting imagery that is likely to deceive the public as to the content’s origin, if:
The entity or an authorized representative objects to the content, and
Can establish a risk of harm to members of the public.
We work hard to limit the spread of spam because we do not want to allow content that is designed to deceive, or that attempts to mislead users to increase viewership. This content creates a negative user experience and detracts from people’s ability to engage authentically in online communities. We also aim to prevent people from abusing our platform, products, or features to artificially increase viewership or distribute content en masse for commercial gain.
Post, share, engage with content, or create accounts, groups, pages, events, or other assets, either manually or automatically, at very high frequencies.
Attempt to or successfully sell, buy, or exchange site privileges or product features, such as accounts, admin roles, permission to post, pages, groups, likes, etc., except in the case of clearly identified branded content, as defined by our Branded Content Policy.

Failing to direct to promised content (e.g., “Click here for a discount code at Nordstrom”; false play buttons)
Directing users off of Fusion Now through the deceptive or misleading use of URLs, defined as:
Cloaking: Presenting different content to Fusion Now users and Fusion Now crawlers or tools.
Misleading content: Content contains a link that promises one type of content but delivers something different.
Deceptive Pop-up websites: Websites that require an action (captcha, watch ad, click here) in order to view the expected landing page content and the domain name of the URL changes after the required action is complete.
Like / Share-Gating: Landing pages that require users to like, share, or otherwise engage with content before gaining access to off-Fusion Now content.
Deceptive Landing Page Functionality: Websites that have a misleading user interface, which results in accidental traffic being generated (pop-ups/unders, clickjacking, etc.)
Impersonation: The website pretends to be a reputable brand or service by using a name, domain, or content featuring typos, misspellings, or other means to impersonate well-known brands (using a landing page like another, trusted site to mislead visitors).
And other behaviors that are substantially similar to those listed above.
We recognize that the safety of our users extends to the security of their personal information. Attempts to gather sensitive personal information by deceptive or invasive methods are harmful to the authentic, open, and safe atmosphere that we want to foster. Therefore, we do not allow attempts to gather sensitive user information through the abuse of our platform and products.
Attempt to compromise user accounts or gather sensitive information through unauthorized means, defined as:
Gaining access to any account or user data other than your own without explicit permission from the account owner.

In line with our commitment to authenticity, we don’t allow people to misrepresent themselves on Fusion Now, use fake accounts, artificially boost the popularity of content, or engage in behaviors designed to enable other violations under our Community Standards. This policy is intended to create a space where people can trust the people and communities they interact with.
Use multiple Fusion Now accounts or share accounts between multiple people

Conceal a Page’s purpose by misleading users about the ownership or control of that Page

Reducing the spread of false news on Fusion Now is a responsibility that we take seriously. We also recognize that this is a challenging and sensitive issue. We want to help people stay informed without stifling productive public discourse. There is also a fine line between false news and satire or opinion. For these reasons, we don’t remove false news from Fusion Now but instead, significantly reduce its distribution by showing it lower in the News Feed. Learn more about our work to reduce the spread of false news here.
We are working to build a more informed community and reduce the spread of false news in a number of different ways, namely by
Disrupting economic incentives for people, Pages, and domains that propagate misinformation
Using various signals, including feedback from our community, to inform a machine learning model that predicts which stories may be false
Reducing the distribution of content rated as false by independent third-party fact-checkers
Empowering people to decide for themselves what to read, trust, and share by informing them with more context and promoting news literacy
Collaborating with academics and other organizations to help solve this challenging issue
Media, including image, audio, or video, can be edited in a variety of ways. In many cases, these changes are benign, like a filter effect on a photo. In other cases, the manipulation is not apparent and could mislead, particularly in the case of video content. We aim to remove this category of manipulated media when the criteria laid out below have been met.
In addition, we will continue to invest in partnerships (including with journalists, academics, and independent fact-checkers) to help us reduce the distribution of false news and misinformation, as well as to better inform people about the content they encounter online.
Do Not Post
that has been edited or synthesized, beyond adjustments for clarity or quality, in ways that are not apparent to an average person, and would mislead an average person to believe that a subject of the video said words that they did not say AND
is the product of artificial intelligence or machine learning, including deep learning techniques (e.g., a technical deepfake), that merges, combines, replaces, and/or superimposes content onto a video, creating a video that appears authentic.
This policy does not extend to content that is parody or satire or is edited to omit words that were said or change the order of words that were said.
When someone passes away, friends and family can request that we memorialize the Fusion Now account. Once memorialized, the word “Remembering” appears above the name on the person’s profile to help make it that the account is now a memorial site and protects against attempted logins and fraudulent activity. To respect the choices someone made while alive, we aim to preserve their account after they pass away. We have also made it possible for people to identify a legacy contact to look after their account after they pass away. To support the bereaved, in some instances we may remove or change certain content when the legacy contact or family members request it.
For victims of murder and suicide we will remove the following content if it appears on the deceased’s profile photo, cover photo, or among recent timeline posts when requested by a legacy contact or family member of the deceased:
Visual depiction of the object used in the deceased’s death
Imagery of the convicted or alleged murderer of the deceased
Content related to the deceased’s death
For victims of murder, we will also remove the convicted or alleged murderer from the deceased’s profile if referenced in relationship status or among friends.
When we have additional context provided by the legacy contact or a family member of the deceased, we may:
Remove bullying or harassment violations on a memorialized profile, which normally require the individual to self-report
Remove praise or support for the death, disease, or harm of the deceased person on a memorialized profile
Change the deceased’s individual’s privacy settings from public to friends-only when there is harmful content on the profile
Change a violating account name on the profile of the deceased individual
