Jacksons Empire Community Guidelines
Violent behavior and/or self-harm is not permitted.
Safety is Jacksons Empire top priority, and we take threats of violence and self-harm very seriously. We may ban users whose content breaches these terms and may also report it to law enforcement if we perceive a genuine risk of physical harm or a direct threat to public safety.
Violent behavior includes but is not limited to:
- threats to physically harm or kill others
- threats to hack, DDOS, or SWAT others
- threats or attempts to self-harm
Jacksons Empire strictly prohibits threats and threats to self harm. We encourage any user considering self-harm to seek help. The 24-hour National Suicide Prevention Lifeline can be reached at 1-800-273-8255.
No sexually explicit content, nudity or abusive behavior.
Sexual dancing is not OK. Are you a great dancer? Awesome. Entertain your audience. However, dancing that is sexually explicit, suggestive, or mimicking sex is prohibited. If you aren’t sure, err on the side of caution.
Do not broadcast sexual content or nudity. This includes content displayed in other apps during your broadcasts (including Parlor, PartyLine, Basechat, Omegle or other apps used for chat). Remember that you are a community leader and example to others. Encouragement of nudity or sexual conduct is prohibited on Jacksons Empire.
Users are not allowed to:
- Use vulgar, profane, or sexually explicit language on camera or in the chat.
- Display offensive or sexually explicit images on camera.
- Perform sexual or sexually suggestive acts, show sex toys onscreen, or dance in a sexually suggestive manner.
Reported content will be reviewed based on context, commentary, attire, environment, camera angle and focus as well as other information including but not limited to broadcast titles, profile images, custom broadcast thumbnails, and profile descriptions.
Stricter rules for those under 18 and adults interacting with minors on Jacksons Empire
- Users of all genders under the age of 18 must be fully clothed on camera. This means no underwear, lingerie, bikinis/swimwear, or revealing tops/shorts. Any user under the age of 18 without a shirt may be subject to action against their account.
- Nudity is forbidden for users of all ages. The exposure of genitalia, buttocks, or bare chest in any way is forbidden and subject to a suspension or permanent ban.
- Any adult engaging with a minor in a way that may be deemed inappropriate or suggests grooming behavior when using a common sense philosophy may be subject to a suspension or permanent ban. Examples include implying the minor lie about their age, asking to meet offline without the minor’s parents’ or legal guardian’s explicit permission, pursuing a direct one-on-one conversation on another platform without the minor’s parents’ or legal guardian’s explicit permission, and more.
Bullying, harassment, or hate speech is not permitted
Though we encourage Jacksons Empire users to express themselves freely within the community guidelines, upholding respect for all community members is paramount. Users who taunt, bully, use hate speech, or in any other form of harassment risk being suspended or permanently banned.
Hateful conduct includes any content or activity that promotes, encourages, or facilitates discrimination, denigration, objectification, harassment, or violence based on race, ethnicity, national origin, religion, sex, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, disability, medical condition, physical characteristics, or veteran status. This content is prohibited on Jacksons Empire.
Remember the Golden Rule, and always be kind. Jacksons Empire will review any reported content or activity based on its intent and context.
Vulgar language used on broadcast and in chat is against the rules. Cursing out other users isn’t just unprofessional, it is abusive.

Examples may include:
- Abusive or offensive language towards others, especially when used with the intention to intimidate or harass;
- Offensive and repeated name calling with the intent to embarrass or harm someone;
- Telling someone to hurt or kill themselves, with the intent to encourage self-harm;
- Creating user accounts dedicated to harassment or hate;
- Disclosing someone’s personal information against their will with the intent to harm or embarrass them;
- Encouraging harassment of others.
