II.7. Harassment

Policy Rationale

We want people to feel safe to engage and connect with their community without worrying about malicious behavior, so we do not tolerate harassment on Hahalolo. Our harassment policy applies to both public and private individuals because we want to prevent unwanted or malicious contact on the platform. We allow people to share and re-share posts if it is clear that something was shared in order to condemn or draw attention to harassment. In addition to reporting such behavior and content, we encourage people to use tools available on Hahalolo to help protect against it.

Do not post:

Making remarks, comments or creating negative content, harming others.

Recording video, taking photos of other people without consent.

  • Claims that a victim of a violent tragedy is lying about being a victim, acting/pretending to be a victim of a verified event, or otherwise is paid or employed to mislead people about their role in the event when sent directly to a survivor and/or immediate family member of a survivor or victim.
