Thank you for your continued support and contributions. We feel humbled and privileged to work for such a beautiful and diverse online community. 💜
Your Privacy Is Our Priority
To safeguard your privacy and protect your personal information, we don’t allow users to publicly share any sensitive or confidential information about themselves or others. All content that could potentially lead to physical, mental, or financial harm by offering, requesting, or soliciting personal details will be removed.
Exposing someone else’s private details or threatening to do so to defame the individual, incite harassment, blackmail, undermine their cybersecurity, or any other illegal activities defined under the law, are strictly prohibited.
Our Commitment to Your Safety
CHILD EXPLOITATION & ABUSE
Taimi holds a zero-tolerance policy toward any content or behavior that features, glorifies, promotes, or accommodates the sexual exploitation of children. Furthermore, Taimi does not allow images of unaccompanied minors to be shared in the app to prevent any potential abuse or misappropriation by others.
VIOLENCE & VIOLENT EXTREMISM
Stating intentions or expressing a wish to inflict serious physical injury, sexual assault, death, or disease, is strictly prohibited. We do not allow any violent threats aimed at a specific individual, group of people, or property, all forms of extremist affiliation or promotion, and overall glorification and incitement of violence.
SUICIDE & SELF-HARM
At Taimi, the safety and well-being of our members are of prime importance, and we leave nobody behind! All content aimed at mocking or degrading victims or survivors of suicide, self-harm, or eating disorders, is not allowed.
Simultaneously, we understand the potential harm and pain caused by exposure to content intentionally or unintentionally promoting or encouraging self-harm. As such, we prohibit content that promotes, encourages, celebrates, or provides instructions for; suicide, self- inflicted injuries, and eating disorders.
Taimi does allow public conversations concerning these topics to take place so that our members can share their stories, raise awareness, and support each other in a safe space.

MENTAL ABUSE, HARASSMENT & CYBER-BULLYING
Any conduct aimed at harassing, intimidating, shaming, or degrading an individual or group of people is strictly prohibited. Similarly, setting up a public campaign to incite targeted harassment or defamation is not allowed on our platform.
Be aware and secure yourself from the sextortion: the scammer poses as a potential partner on a dating app, sends their own explicit photos and then threatens to share the images and conversation with the victim’s friends, family or employer unless the victim sends money.
In order to evade a risk of extortion and not to become the victim of this scamming scheme comply with the following recommendations:
o Check out to whom you’re talking. Do a reverse-image search of the person’s photo. If the photo is associated with another name or details don’t match up, that’s a sign of a scam.
o Don’t share personal information such as your cell number, email or social-media profile with someone you just met on an app.
o Don’t pay scammers to destroy photos or conversations; there’s no guarantee they will.
HATE SPEECH & DISCRIMINATION
Taimi does not allow violence against or discrimination toward people based on protected characteristics: race, ethnicity, national origin, disability, religious affiliation, caste, sexual orientation, sex, gender identity, and serious disease.
Our policy strictly prohibits all behavior and media promoting or perpetuating harmful stereotypes and generalizations, dehumanization and statements of inferiority, threats of violence and discrimination, fear-mongering, prejudice, and calls for exclusion or segregation.
NUDITY & EXPLICIT CONTENT
It is prohibited to distribute explicit or suggestive content and requests publicly. Such content includes, without limitation, the promotion of pornography, depictions of nudity, people in explicit or suggestive positions, and overly provocative or potentially abusive activities and requests.
Whether explicitly or implicitly, imagery displaying intercourse, masturbation, visible genitalia, and fetish-related content is not allowed. Media wherein the focal point is directly aimed at or zoomed in on explicit areas of the body, nude or covered, will also be removed.
PROMOTION & SOLICITATION OF SERVICES
Taimi takes the safety and financial security of our users very seriously. We don’t allow our platform to be used as a vehicle for the promotion of goods and services in exchange for money or other forms of compensation that have the potential of being monetized.
Sharing your personal financial information - or requesting that of others - to receive or send money from or to other individuals or groups of people will result in a suspension.
This policy prohibits sharing bank details, credit card details, all forms of digital payment method credentials and links (e.g., Venmo, Cash App, PayPal, etc.), and actively sharing other social profiles or services that either require or offer paid memberships and subscriptions (e.g., Snapchat Premium, OnlyFans, Patreon, etc.).
ILLEGAL GOODS & SERVICES

Authenticity Is Key
MANIPULATION OF SERVICES & PLATFORM
Taimi is a place to create meaningful connections and inspire others by sharing unique content. Any behavior aimed at aggressively adding inauthentic engagement to your profile or activity on the app is strictly prohibited.
Furthermore, it is not allowed to artificially amplify or manipulate all forms of reward-based and level-based features by operating multiple accounts or coordinating interactions with other users. Fraudulent attempts to inflate your in-app benefits or disenfranchise others from enjoying theirs are strictly prohibited. Additionally, you can’t be engaged in offering or requesting features (e.g., coins, gifts, etc.) in exchange for goods and services, both in-app and offline.
We prohibit all artificial activity that creates a disruptive or negative user experience on our platform and can potentially threaten the security of our users.
Such artificial activity includes, but is not limited to, the promotion of other social profiles and all artificial means to gain likes, followers, shares, or viewership, posting or sending inauthentic and repetitive content, uploading posts or videos that include third-party advertising, and sharing links to promote goods and services by redirecting users for commercial gain.
IMPERSONATION & CATFISHING
Any attempt to impersonate another individual is not allowed. Creating fake accounts, uploading misleading photos of your friends, celebrities, or other people to your profile, registering an account on behalf of a minor or other third party, and identity theft are strictly prohibited.
Moreover, all forms of false representation of a brand or organization are equally prohibited. The prohibition, without limitation,includes behavior and content aimed at deceiving or confusing others, spreading misinformation or disinformation, defaming individuals or organizations, and other malicious or fraudulent activities.
PROFILE AUTHENTICATION & INTEGRITY
To ensure the authenticity and integrity of all interactions and conversations on our platform, we request that users refrain from posting profile pictures where the face is obscured or where the image is overly digitally altered.
All accounts registered will pass a two-step verification process to make sure there are no fake accounts. Verification and profile images should match at all times.
MISINFORMATION & DISINFORMATION
We wish to keep our community well-informed and require all content to represent real and reliable information. It is not allowed to share or promote manipulated media or false information that may cause real physical violence and harm, undermines public safety, or furthers hate speech, discrimination, and harassment.
