The guidelines set out here set out what is acceptable and not acceptable and apply to content published using Mapcident.
The following principles are the basis that publishers should follow:
All content, potential or already published on the service, falls into one of three categories: Red, Orange or Green. These are established to keep the platform safe for visitors by keeping unsuitable/inappropriate content away from the public, or entirely off the site:
Red for content that offers no benefit in being shared to the public or with those who may have a legitimate interest, or is illegal to process or share. This content is not welcome under any circumstances.
Orange for content that is unsuitable/inappropriate for public consumption, but will be made available where individuals/organizations may have legitimate uses for it. Members of the public will be able to see the title, description, place and time, but will not be able to view the associated video. Viewing the video will be possible for vetted audiences (members of the media, law enforcement, public safety organizations, and academia). The purpose or Orange is not to stop anyone from viewing the content, but to limit its distribution to those without a legitimate interest, as it may do harm to viewers and/or harm people depicted in the content.
Green for content that does not fall into Red or Orange categories and will be available to all visitors.
It should be noted that any of the Green examples would become Orange or Red if they include something meeting the respective category descriptions.
