1. Overview

The Program is owned by Franki Global Inc. 100 W Broadway STE 3000 Long Beach CA, 90802 (“FRANKI”, “we”, “us”, “our”), and is our way of supporting our creator community by rewarding creators who drive franki app engagement and build a community of followers as outlined in the Franki Locals Fund Terms below. Our intention via this Program is to support and motivate like-minded creators who genuinely want to support their local hospitality small businesses and build a community within FRANKI (Program Intent).

These Terms incorporate and are expressly subject to the FRANKI community guidelines (“Guidelines”) which are listed below, and which may be updated by us at any time with or without notice to you. In the event of any actual conflict between these Terms and the Guidelines, these Terms will prevail solely with respect to Creator’s participation in the Program. Upon expiration or termination of the Program or Creator’s participation in the Program, the Policies will remain in effect and continue to apply to Creator’s use of the Platform. All capitalized terms used but not defined in these Creator Fund Terms have the respective meanings set forth in franki app Terms of Use.

6. Community Guidelines

We created the Community Guidelines so you can help us foster and protect this amazing community. By using FRANKI, you agree to these Guidelines and our Terms of Use. We are committed to these Guidelines, and we hope you are too. Overstepping these boundaries may result in deleted content, disabled accounts, or other restrictions.

Only share your content. You own the content you post on franki. Please post authentic, factually correct content, and don’t post anything you’ve copied from others or collected from the Internet that you don’t have the right to post.

Post videos that are appropriate for a diverse audience. We proudly support community diversity. We don’t allow nudity on FRANKI. This includes videos and digitally-created content that show sexual intercourse, genitals, and close-ups of fully-nude buttocks. We do not allow any content we determine to be spam, political in nature, hate speech, bullying or harassment. FRANKI is not a place to support or praise terrorism, organized crime, or hate groups. Offering sexual services, buying or selling firearms, and illegal or prescription drugs (even if it’s legal in your region) is also not allowed. It’s never OK to encourage violence or attack anyone based on their race, ethnicity, national origin, sex, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, religious affiliation, disabilities, or diseases.

Foster meaningful and genuine interactions. Help us stay spam-free, genuine and a trusted community by not artificially creating any new accounts, collecting likes, followers,  shares, posting repetitive comments or content, or repeatedly contacting people for commercial purposes without their consent.

Follow the law. FRANKI promotes experiences and adventure, but we do not promote the abuse or illegal use of drugs and alcohol. Be smart. Please follow the relevant laws in your area. Do not include minors or anyone who has not consented to your content in your videos or they will be subject to removal.

Help us keep the community strong. Each of us is an important part of the franki community. If you see something that you think may violate our guidelines, please help us by flagging content in the App or emailing us at [email protected]. We have a team that reviews these reports and works as quickly as possible to remove content that doesn’t meet our guidelines.

You may find content you don’t like, but that doesn’t violate the Community Guidelines. If that happens, you can unfollow or block the person who posted it.

Reviews, positive or negative, will not be removed simply at the request of an affected business owner; they may only be removed or edited by franki staff if the review is in violation of our Terms of Use and these Community Guidelines, at franki’s sole discretion.

Many disputes and misunderstandings can be resolved directly between members of the community. If one of your photos or videos was posted by someone else, you could try commenting on the post and asking the person to take it down.

We may work with law enforcement, including when we believe that there’s risk of physical harm or threat to public safety.
