Report Abuse Policy

www.namukini.com (“Website”) is a platform where users can share with other users of the Website blogs, videos, posts, etc., on varied topics ranging from food and health to travel, personal experiences and inspirations. As the Website allows its users to upload their experiences online, a substantial amount of the content available on the Website is user generated content. Due to the large number of users and user generated content, it is not possible for Kynkyny Media to monitor all content that is made available on the Website.

As users of the Website, you have certain responsibilities to yourselves and to each other. You are requested to “report abuse” with respect to content that you find questionable or offensive or in any manner violative of Kynkyny Media’s policies. Kynkyny Media requests its users to adhere to its policies and report instants of abuse to Kynkyny Media in all such cases, including those mentioned below:

1. Hate speech: Kynkyny Media does not tolerate hate speech. Please grant each other mutual respect when you communicate on this Website. While discussion and exchange of ideas should be encouraged, Kynkyny Media does not encourage distinguishing individuals based on race, ethnicity, national origin, religion, sex, gender, sexual orientation, disability, or disease. Hate speech includes debasing or dehumanizing language and incitement of violence or prejudicial action against an individual or group of people based on their affiliation. You are required not to indulge in such behaviour and to bring such behaviour by other users to the attention of Kynkyny Media.
2. Malicious Content: Do not post such content, which directly or indirectly, defames someone or injures or maligns someone’s reputation by making malicious personal attacks without any political, professional or social commentary.

It is therefore, a platform where creative people connect and share using their real identities. When you represent yourself accurately on the Website, you are helping to build trust and safety for everyone.

On receiving a complaint on any of the above grounds, the measures that Kynkyny Media may take include (without limitation):

b. Restricting access to that content by limiting who can view the content, such as through a warning page prior to viewing the material;

You may disagree with certain material or find it to be inappropriate. However, Kynkyny Media understands that users have many different points of view. Kynkyny Media takes this into consideration when reviewing reports of abuse and may make exceptions based on artistic, educational, documentary, or scientific considerations or where there are other substantial benefits to the public from not taking action on the content. Although not all reports will result in action, Kynkyny Media does rely on the users to identify and report material that may be violating Kynkyny Media’s policies.
