Teatime Games Community Guidelines

Teatime Games’ goal is to bring people together by creating a mobile platform that provides a personal and friendly experience. This is the place where people who share a passion for games can interact anywhere, anytime. Teatime Games brings the best of both worlds, the physical and the digital one.

We want our games to reflect a diverse community of cultures, ages and beliefs. It is very important to us that all of our users feel safe and free to express themselves. In our games people can interact with others in a playful, yet respectful manner.

Due to the diversity of our users we have created these Community Guidelines, for all of you.

We hope these guidelines will help you understand what is appropriate behavior and where the limit is within our games.

When using our services and playing our games, you must observe these Community Guidelines which constitute part of our Terms of Service.

Healthy Community

In order to maintain a healthy community, we have a rating system that allows you to report players and explain the reason why. We will delete accounts or otherwise penalize users that violate these guidelines and/or threaten any other player, show inappropriate behavior when using the live video feature of our games or any other in-app feature part of our platform.

We Condemn Any Disrespectful Conduct and Hate Speech

We will not tolerate hate speech, threats, harassment, stalking, bullying or degrading others. 

Sharing personal information for the purposes of blackmail or harassment, as well as addressing other players disrespectfully is not allowed.

Disrespectful conduct also applies to specific threats of violence against others,  theft, vandalism and other financial harm.

If we become aware of such activity or abuse our policies, including hoaxes or false threats of self-harm or violence, we will delete the applicable content and take proactive steps to enforce our Terms of Service, including without limitation, termination of the responsible player’s account or banning the player from our platform indefinitely.

Dangerous Behavior

Dangerous behavior also includes, suicide threats and self- injure during audio call or in the chat.

Adult Content

Sexually explicit content is strictly prohibited. This includes any pornographic content, showing genitalia or sexual intercourse of any kind. Offering sexual services of any kind is also forbidden. Please see our Terms of Service for a complete list of prohibited content.

Child Exploitation; Human Trafficking

We have zero-tolerance for child sexual exploitation and human trafficking. If we become aware of such activity we will report it to the appropriate authorities in compliance with applicable law.

Your Account and Personal Details

When signing up for any of our apps, we make an effort to protect your personal details. By accepting our Terms of Service, among other requirements, you agree to provide accurate information about yourself when you create an account. You should not post personal or confidential information about others without their consent.

For parents

Talk with your child about the risks of sharing information online. Carefully discuss the dangers of talking to strangers online. Children should develop a healthy skepticism about who they are talking to and about what. For more on this matter, see the information provided by the US nonprofit organization Common Sense Media here.

Only Fair-play Allowed

Players may be penalized for the following actions in accordance with our guidelines:

  • Disconnect from a game intentionally.
  • Abort games in order not to lose.
  • Leaving a game unattended.
  • Playing simultaneously on multiple devices.
  • Cheating by using any kind of technology or external help.
  • Excessively reporting other players that have done nothing wrong.

The type of penalty for any of the actions stated above will be determined by Teatime Games in our sole discretion. When making such determinations we may consider several factors, including the severity of the act and whether or not the player is a repeat offender. 

Penalties include but are not limited to the following measures:

  • Blocking the account.
  • Loss of points.
  • Disabling the user to play for a befitting period of time.

This list is not all-inclusive.

Reporting bad behavior

After each game, players will get the opportunity to rate their opponents’ behavior. Teatime Games may take action in light of such ratings. We believe doing so will play a big part in keeping our community healthy and fun.

How to Report a User

In order to report your opponent, you can click your opponent’s video and subsequently the little exclamation mark next to their name; or use the menu button on the left side at the bottom of the screen while playing.

Users will also have the opportunity to submit a report after a game and on the chat screen. You will be required to categorize your report into one of the following categories:

  • Harassment
  • Violence
  • Nudity
  • Hate Speech
  • Self-harm

These guidelines apply to any of Teatime Games’ titles.
