If you encounter any content on Yo.ee that contravenes these guidelines, we kindly ask that you report it.
Guidelines for Adult Content
Our goal is to enable all users, referred to as Linkers, to establish their unique presence online. At the same time, we aim to ensure that all visitors, particularly minors, are able to make informed choices. Furthermore, the varied legal frameworks in the multiple international regions where Yo.ee operates dictate certain limitations on the types of content permitted on our platform.
What You Can Do:
- You're allowed to create links to adult content, provided it's lawful in your area, does not promote comprehensive sex work services, and is flagged as sensitive.
- You may promote adult-themed media that you produce and offer on other platforms.
What You Cannot Do:
- Uploading adult content, which includes nudity, to your Yo.ee profile picture, link thumbnails, backgrounds, or in PDFs is not permitted.
