A Word on Safety
The first thing everyone needs to know is that SpikeCast is NOT for people under the age of 13.
Some Things Are Better Left Private...
Posting videos of yourself, your friends, or your family can be fun and exciting. You never know who will find it — it might even get featured on the front page, or wind up on the top of the Most Viewed! But if your video is private, it's probably not a good idea to post it on SpikeCast.
Protect Your Secret Identity!
If you do post public videos, make sure there isn't anything in them that could help a stranger figure out who you are or where you live. Personal information like your telephone number or home address should NEVER be shared with other users. Watch out for things like license plate numbers on cars or images of the outside of your home which might accidentally appear in the background of a video and help a stranger to track you down.
Remember, SpikeCast employees will never ask you for your password, email address, or other account information. Don't be fooled if someone contacts you pretending to be from SpikeCast!
Keep Your Cool, Keep SpikeCast Safe
Whether it's a flame war, cyberbullying, or people being just plain mean, comments can get pretty rough sometimes. When you post a video, people can comment on your videos. If someone leaves a comment on your video that is mean or bothers you, let us know and we can delete it for you.
SpikeCast doesn't allow videos with nudity, graphic violence, or hate. If you come across a video like this, let us know by contacting us through the website or by emailing email@example.com.
Just like in the real world, most of the people on SpikeCast are good, but some aren't. So please take care to protect yourself and your fellow users by keeping personal videos private, your identity a secret, your comments clean, and by reporting abuse.
