Blogging Rules And Terms Of Service
GoldToken offers a free blogging service for its paying members, for communication, self-expression and freedom of speech. We believe blogging increases the availability of information, encourages healthy debate, and makes possible new connections between people.
We respect our users' ownership of and responsibility for the content they choose to share. However, in order to uphold these values, we need to curb abuses that threaten our ability to provide this service and the freedom of expression it encourages. As a result, there are some basic rules on the type of content that can be blogged on GoldToken. The rules we've defined are those that both comply with legal requirements and that serve to enhance GoldToken’s service as a whole.
