CODE OF CONDUCT


As a community of people committed to starting a cause and changing society one project at a time, we welcome and support projects in the diverse categories of Community, Technology, Art, Sports, Charity and Education.

Our community is built upon a bedrock of core values, transparency, honesty and authenticity. As such, it is the responsibility of every Sponsorable project to adhere to our code of conduct. It's up to all of us to be game changers in this world, and to make sure that happens, we've got some simple rules we hope everyone will keep in mind!


Projects must have genuine social objectives.

Sponsorable can be used to find sponsors for all sorts of projects. But we believe that every project needs to benefit society in one way or another. In the end, people who are part of the project should be able to say: "Wow, I really benefited from this project and enjoyed myself!"


Be honest. No lies.

Seriously, it sucks to be lied to. No one likes that. Our community is built on trust and clear communication. Project must not mislead sponsors or misrepresent important facts about their audience or sponsorship opportunities. When a project cannot be held up to its promises, you need to update sponsors immediately.


Don't spam.

This includes sending out unsolicited mass emails with your project link, promoting your project where it shouldn't be promoted, or even using third-party email lists. The question and answer system on Sponsorable is here so that projects can communicate with sponsors in openly, but also privately not for spam.


Play nice. Respect others.

Conversations are an integral aspect of our community. We strongly encourage sponsors to post questions on a project page to find out more about the project or its sponsorship opportunities, especially when there is doubt. All we ask is that these conversations stay honest, considerate and respectful. Don't post obscene, hateful or objectionable content. Don't post personal information. Don't post copyrighted content without permission. Even if you do not like how sponsors ask questions, don't flame them. Please respect their questions and do your best to answer them.


If you notice something amiss, say something.

If something seems off, let us know. Our Curation team reviews every report we receive and our stand is to take swift action when we see someone violating guidelines. Sometimes it's a warning, but sometimes it can mean delisting a project or revoking account privileges. The best way to avoid this? Simply be honest, don't spam and respect others.

We also prohibit projects that are illegal, heavily regulated by the government or are potentially dangerous to the community at large. Some prohibited items include, but are not limited to:

1. Any project claiming to cure, treat, or prevent an illness or condition (whether via a device, app, book, nutritional supplement, or other means).

2. Vices such as gambling, smoking, drugs, and alcohol

3. Offensive material (e.g., racial discrimination, hate speech and troll baits).

4. Political or religious fundraising activities

5. Rated material such as gore, sexual content, pornographic material or violence (Weapons, replicas of weapons, and weapon accessories).
