    • Your User-Generated Content. Do not use any User-Generated Content that belongs to other people and pass it off as your own; this includes any content that you might have found elsewhere on the Internet. For example, your User-Generated Content should not contain any visible logos, phrases, or trademarks that belong to third parties. If anyone contributes to your User-Generated Content or has any rights to your User-Generated Content, or if anyone appears in the User-Generated Content, then you must also have their permission to submit such User-Generated Content to gatudoo.com. (For example, if someone has taken a picture of you and your friend, and you submit that photo to gatudoo.com as your User-Generated Content, then you must obtain your friend’s and the photographer’s permission to do so.)
    • Speaking of Photos: No Photos, Videos, or Images of Anyone Other Than You and Your Friends and Family. If you choose to submit photos to the Website, link to embedded videos, or include other images of real people, then make sure they are of you or of you and someone you know – and only if you have their permission to submit them. Additionally, if the photo, video, or image includes a minor, you must be the parent or guardian of the child, or have permission from the child’s parents or guardians, prior to submitting them.
    • Act Appropriately. Be respectful of others’ opinions and comments so we can continue to build Communities for everyone to enjoy.

  • Be Honest and Do Not Misrepresent Yourself or Your User-Generated Content.
