Teesguide is the self-expression global e-commerce company. We empower our community of customers to express themselves in creating, discovering and selling clothing and accessories with messages they want the world to hear. This also means that you might find certain messages controversial, while others do not.
Of course, there are also standards that we set for our community and we remove designs that come to our attention when we find them to be:
- Hate speech
- Inciting violence
- Graphic sexual content
In some cases, the context of a message is key for understanding. We encourage our community to be mindful of this and report designs which you think violate our Community Standards. We take each report of a design, product or shop seriously; we research the case thoroughly and consult experts if necessary before taking appropriate action.
We are of course bound by the laws in the countries we are active in. Reported designs, products and shops that violate the law will be removed.
2. Hate Speech
We remove designs that come to our attention when we find them to have content that directly attacks people based on their:
- National origin
- Sexual orientation
- Sex, gender, or gender identity, or
- Serious disabilities or diseases
Organizations and individuals dedicated to attacking and promoting hatred against these groups should not find a home on Teesguide. As with all of our Community Standards, we rely on you to report this content to us.
We may however allow satire or social commentary related to these topics when that context is clear.
People can use Teesguide to challenge ideas, institutions or practices by expressing this on products. This helps promoting debate and greater understanding.
3. Violent Content
Teesguide removes content that comes to our attention which incites violence or is offensive, defamatory or threatening to victims of attacks, catastrophes or crimes.
In some cases, when people create, buy or sell content referencing violence, they are condemning it or raising awareness about it and we may allow that content on Teesguide. We will remove graphic and violent content when we find it to celebrate or glorify violence.
4. Graphic Sexual Content
Teesguide will remove content that comes to our attention when we find that it contains graphic sexual content, pornography and obscenity, especially in regard to minors. We may also restrict the display and visibility of certain sexual content at our discretion.
