RugbyMatch Policies

The following policies form part of these terms of use.

Governing Law

This website is operated from the Republic of South Africa, and thus the South African Law governs the use or liability to use this web site and these terms and conditions.

Community Standards

People use Rugbymatch to share their experiences and to raise awareness about issues that are important to them. This means that you may encounter opinions that are different from yours, which we believe can lead to important conversations about difficult topics. To help balance the needs, safety, and interests of a diverse community, however, we may remove certain kinds of sensitive content or limit the audience that sees it. Learn more about how we do that here:

Nudity: People sometimes share content containing nudity for reasons like awareness campaigns or artistic projects. We restrict the display of nudity because some audiences within our global community may be sensitive to this type of content – particularly because of their cultural background or age. In order to treat people fairly and respond to reports quickly, it is essential that we have policies in place that our global teams can apply uniformly and easily when reviewing content. As a result, our policies can sometimes be more blunt than we would like and restrict content shared for legitimate purposes. We are always working to get better at evaluating this content and enforcing our standards.

We will remove photographs of people displaying genitals or focusing in on fully exposed buttocks. We also restrict some images of female breasts if they include the nipple, but we always allow photos of women actively engaged in breastfeeding or showing breasts with post-mastectomy scarring. We also do not allow photographs of paintings, sculptures, and other art that depicts nude figures. Restrictions on the display of both nudity and sexual activity also apply to digitally created content. Explicit images of sexual intercourse are prohibited. Descriptions of sexual acts that go into vivid detail may also be removed. Hate Speech: Hate speech includes content that directly attacks people based on their Race, Ethnicity, National Origin, Religious affiliation, Sexual orientation, Sex, Gender, Gender Identity, Serious disabilities or Diseases. Hate speech will not be permitted on Rugbymatch, and we reserve the right to remove it immediately.
Organisations and people dedicated to promoting hatred against, or using hate speech in respect to, these protected groups are not allowed a presence on RugbyMatch.
People can use Rugbymatch to challenge ideas, institutions, and practices. Such discussion can promote debate and greater understanding. Sometimes people share content containing someone else’s hate speech for the purpose of raising awareness or educating others about that hate speech. When this is the case, we expect people to clearly indicate their purpose, which helps us better understand why they shared that content.
We allow humour, satire, or social commentary related to these topics, and we believe that when people use their authentic identity, they are more responsible when they share this kind of commentary. For that reason, we ask that Page owners associate their name and RugbyMatch Profile with any content that is insensitive, even if that content does not violate our policies. As always, we urge people to be conscious of their audience when sharing this type of content.
While we work hard to remove hate speech, we also give you the tools to avoid distasteful or offensive content. Please use the Support tab to report this content to us.
Violence and Graphic Content. We want Rugbymatch to be a place where people share their experiences and raise awareness about important issues. Sometimes, those experiences and issues involve violence and graphic images of public interest or concern, such as human rights abuses or acts of terrorism. In many instances, when people share this type of content, they are condemning it or raising awareness about it. We remove graphic images when they are shared for sadistic pleasure or to celebrate or glorify violence.
When people share anything on RugbyMatch, we expect that they will share it responsibly, including carefully choosing who will see that content. We also ask that people to warn their audience about what they are about to see if it includes graphic violence.
Keeping your account and personal information secure. We work hard to help keep your account secure and protect your personal information. By joining Rugbymatch, you agree to use your authentic name and identity. You may not publish the personal information of others without their consent. Using Your Authentic Identity: How Rugbymatch’s real name requirement creates a safer environment. People connect on Wononwon using their authentic identities. When people stand behind their opinions and actions with their authentic name and reputation, our community is more accountable. If we discover that you have multiple personal profiles, we may ask you to close the additional profiles. We also remove any profiles that impersonate other people.
Fraud and Spam: How we protect you from fraud and spam. We work hard to help ensure that the information you share is secure. We investigate any suspected breach of security. Any attempt to compromise the security of a Profile, including fraud, may be referred to law enforcement. Using misleading or inaccurate information to artificially collect likes, followers, or shares is not allowed. We also ask that you respect people by not contacting them for commercial purposes without their consent.
Notification of Changes Rugbymatch reserves the right to change these conditions from time to time as it sees fit and your continued use of the site will signify your acceptance of any adjustment to these terms. If there are any changes to our privacy policy, we will announce that these changes have been made on our home page and on other key pages on our site. If there are any changes in how we use our site clients’ Personally Identifiable Information, notification will be made to those affected by this change.
