We're serious about protecting our users by addressing potential privacy concerns. Our privacy guidelines apply to all users across the world. In other words, while the video in question may not violate your country's privacy laws, it may still violate EM and T2L's privacy guidelines.
For content to be considered for removal, an individual must be uniquely identifiable by image, voice, full name, government identification number, bank account number, contact information (e.g. home address, email address), or other uniquely identifiable information. We also take public interest, newsworthiness, and consent into account when determining if content should be removed for a privacy violation.
T2L is an education platform that is meant for teaching and learning purposes. Any videos that depict pornographic content, hate speech and related materials will be removed. All non-English videos need to be presented with captions and will be verified by T2L & EM. If captions are not added, EM & T2L will make independent assessment. If violations are found, such videos will be removed.
EM & T2L reserve the right to make the final determination of whether a violation of its privacy guidelines has occurred.
To be considered uniquely identifiable, there must be enough information in the video that allows others to recognize you. Please note that just because you can identify yourself within the video, it does not mean you are uniquely identifiable to others. A first name without additional context or a fleeting image, for example, would not likely qualify as uniquely identifiable.
If a privacy complaint is filed, T2L may provide the uploader an opportunity to remove or edit the private information within their video. We issue notification of the potential violation and provide the uploader 48 hours to take action on the complaint. If the uploader removes the video during these 48 hours, the complaint filed will be closed. If the potential privacy violation remains on the site after 48 hours, the T2L Team will then review the complaint.
Our Privacy Complaint Process also accounts for cases that warrant urgent removal of contact or financial data.
To file a privacy complaint, start the Privacy Complaint Process. As the complainant, your privacy is respected in this process. At no point will your identity or contact information be released to the uploader without your consent. Our communications to you about this process will be sent to the email address you provide to us. Add email@example.com to your spam filter to ensure you receive these messages.
We do not accept claims made on behalf of third parties except in the following situations:
the individual whose privacy is being violated does not have access to a computer
the individual whose privacy is being violated is a vulnerable individual
the claim is being made by the parent or legal guardian of the individual whose privacy is being violated
the claim is being made by a legal representative for the individual whose privacy is being violated
We will not accept privacy complaints filed on behalf of:
other family members (e.g., husband, wife, cousin, brother, sister)
co-workers or employees (individuals must submit a report themselves)
Tips on filing a complete privacy complaint
Please be clear and concise so that the T2L Team can identify you within the video.
Use time stamps to indicate only one or two places where you clearly appear in the video.
In the description area, please specify what you are wearing or doing that differentiates you from others within the video.
Make sure you've included the video URL in your report. You are not required to submit a URL if you are reporting an entire channel.
If you are reporting a comment made in the comments section of a video, please note this in the description area. Include the commenter's username in the username field.
T2L may provide you, the uploader, an opportunity to remove or edit the private information within your video. In this case, we would email you about the potential violation and allow you 48 hours to take action on the complaint. If you remove the alleged violation from the site within the 48 hours, the complaint filed will then be closed. If the potential privacy violation remains on the site after 48 hours, the complaint will be reviewed by the T2L Team.
If we remove your video for a privacy violation, please do not upload another version featuring the same people. These individuals will likely file another privacy complaint or report you for harassment. We are serious about protecting our users and suspend accounts that violate people's privacy.
You can remove the reported content completely from the site.
If someone's full name or other personal information is listed within the title, description, or tags of your video, you can edit this by going to My Videos and clicking the Edit button on the reported video.
You can blur the faces of individuals who appear in the videos.
Making a video private as the uploader can change the status from private to public at any time.
We want you to feel safe when you're on T2L, which is why we encourage you to let us know if videos or comments on the site violate your privacy or sense of safety.
If someone has posted your personal information or uploaded a video of you without your consent, you should contact the uploader and ask them to remove the content. If you can’t reach an agreement with the uploader, or if you're uncomfortable contacting them, you can request to have the content removed based on our Privacy Guidelines.
Our Privacy Guidelines provide a detailed explanation of our privacy complaint process and the factors we take into account when evaluating privacy claims.
For content to be considered for removal, an individual must be uniquely identifiable. If you want to use the privacy complaint process, make sure that you are uniquely identifiable within the content you seek to report before proceeding. When assessing if an individual is uniquely identifiable, we consider the following factors:
Image or voice
Other personally identifiable information
When you report a privacy complaint, we consider public interest, newsworthiness, and consent as factors in our final decision.
Think carefully before you post personal information. This includes things like the town you live in, where you go to school, and your home address.
Protect your account data and don’t share your password with others. T2L employees will never ask you for your password. Don’t be fooled if someone contacts you pretending to be from T2L.
Get permission first. As a rule of thumb, you should get permission before filming other people or posting their personal information.
Visit our Privacy and Safety Settings page for a list of tools that you can use to manage your content and experience on the site.
Check out best practices for keeping your account secure.
We want you to use T2L without fear of being subjected to malicious harassment. In cases where harassment crosses the line into a malicious attack it can be reported and will be removed. In other cases, users may be mildly annoying or petty and should simply be ignored.
Abusive videos, comments, messages
Revealing someone’s personal information, including sensitive personally identifiable information such as social security numbers, passport numbers, or bank account numbers.
Maliciously recording someone without their consent
Deliberately posting content in order to humiliate someone
Making hurtful and negative comments/videos about another person
Unwanted sexualization, which encompasses sexual harassment or sexual bullying in any form
Incitement to harass other users or creators
Pause before you post: Think seriously about how you may be perceived online and do not post anything that may compromise your reputation or safety.
Speak up: Tell friends to stop cyberbullying and voice your opinion against cyberbullying when you see it on the site.
Tell an adult if you remain concerned about another’s actions towards you online.
Try deleting comments and blocking the user if another user is bothering you, so they can't leave more comments. You can also turn comments off for any video or manage comments by requiring pre-approval before they get posted.
Respect people’s opinions online but know when it crosses the line. We want T2L to be a dynamic and expressive platform, but we do not want users to feel intimidated or threatened.
To learn about tools available to you to help you manage your experience on the site, especially abusive users, please visit our Privacy and safety settings page.
Sometimes criticism and insults can escalate into more serious forms of harassment and cyberbullying. If specific threats are made against you and you feel unsafe, tell a trusted adult and report it to your local law enforcement agency.
Sometimes people may upload videos or post comments in which they express thoughts about suicide, self-injury, or depression. If you're having these types of feelings, or know someone else who may need help, please take a look at the resources, tips, and tools below.
If you come across content in which someone is suicidal or engaging in self harm, please contact local authorities and flag the video to bring it to our immediate attention. We reach out to these individuals with resources and work with suicide prevention agencies to provide assistance when possible.
If you or someone else is being harassed, please report the abusive content using our reporting tool and seek guidance from a trusted adult, friend or relevant organization.
If you believe that someone is in imminent danger, please call the police.
The website www.befrienders.org has an extensive list of suicide prevention organizations dedicated to helping those in need. Please visit this site if you are looking to talk to someone about your issues.
We understand that parents and guardians sometimes have questions about children's behavior online. We’ve put together some tools and resources to help you manage your family’s experience on T2L.
To sign in to T2L, you must have a T2L account that meets the minimum age requirements. If a video gets flagged and we find that the uploader inaccurately stated their age during the account creation process, we will terminate their account.
We ask all our members to review our Community Guidelines, as they outline what content and behavior is acceptable on T2L.
Have your teenagers make playlists of their favorite videos, while you make your own. Then sit down to watch them together. You can see what your teens are watching, and they might learn a thing or two about you.
Take your teens on a stroll through your own TV-watching childhood by compiling a playlist of clips from your favorite shows.
Make watching T2L a game: Guess what kinds of videos are popular in a particular place and then use Advanced Search to see videos only in that location. It's a great way to have a conversation with your teens about cultural assumptions, tastes, similarities, and differences.
Be mindful of who your teen interacts with on T2L.
Inappropriate content: If you see a video that you feel is inappropriate or which may violate our Community Guidelines, flag the video. This is the fastest way to bring potentially inappropriate content to our attention. T2L policy specialists review flagged videos at the earliest.
Harassment and cyberbullying:
If your teen / student is being harassed by someone on T2L, direct them to block the user. This will help prevent further communication from the unwanted user.
If the harassment persists, please review the harassment article within our Safety Center for harassment prevention information.
If you or your teen / student wish to report harassment in videos, channels/profiles or comments, you may do so via our reporting tool.
Moderating channel comments: There are tools available that allow your child / student to remove comments posted on their channel, or moderate them before they appear on your channel. To learn more read our article on moderating channel comments.
Visit your teens’ channel: Take a look at what your teen is posting on their channel. Check out their favorites and which T2L channels they are subscribed to. Favorites and subscriptions can give you clues about what they are watching on the site.
Privacy and safety settings: T2L has a range of tools and settings help users manage their experience on the site. To learn more about the resources that are available to your teen please visit our privacy and safety settings page.
If you're an educator, you may be interested in using T2L's educational content. Here are some resources to help empower you and your students to stay safe online.
