Paltalk code of conduct

This section is more or less a common sense explanation of our terms of service.  These explanations are not to be regarded as a modification to our terms of service, but simply to highlight certain areas regarding your account and why you may be restricted from the Paltalk system.

If you are a paid subscriber you are NOT exempt from these rules!  Subscribing does not grant license to violate our terms of service!

Illegal activity:
Paltalk will not tolerate illegal activity.  This includes, but is not limited to the transfer of child pornography, transferring adult material to minor children, promotion of drug usage, promoting violence or terrorism, stalking, or credit card fraud.

Paltalk will provide your user information to any legitimate law enforcement agency if we receive an official request for it.  Please see our terms of service.

Disparaging group titles:
Paltalk does not allow group titles that single out specific individuals, groups, organizations, corporations, races, religions etc…  for the purpose of degrading or otherwise disparaging them.

This is a common sense rule and you should have no problem coming up with a legitimate title for your group. If you think your title is bad, it probably is.

Paltalk will not allow it’s group list to be used as a weapon to spread hate or slander other users.

We don’t care what you talk about in your group, but there is no need to create titles that offend someone when they simply look at our group list.

Constant harassment of other users:
You may not harass other users.  If someone chooses to cut off contact with you please just let it go and find new friends on Paltalk.

Repeated unwanted contact, message bombing, stalking, lewd or threatening comments, or the posting or spreading of personal information is forbidden.

Room raiding:
Traveling from room to room for the express purpose of disrupting conversations and otherwise destroying chat rooms for your own pleasure is forbidden.

Spreading viruses or trojans:
The intentional transfer of malicious files that contain viruses or trojans is forbidden, and it’s just plain-old not nice.  If we catch you doing this your ability to send files may be restricted or if you are a repeat offender you may be banned from the system permanently.

Adults in the teen category:
We don’t care why you are there, you are not suppose to be there!  The category name clearly states ‘Teens (13 -17 ONLY) – NO ADULTS’.

Paltalk will not tolerate adults in this area for any reason whatsoever.  This is done to keep child predators away from children if at all possible.

If you are in this category and you are an adult, expect to be restricted from the teen category or possibly permanently banned from our system.

Minors in adult areas:
Minors under the age of 18 MUST stay in G rated groups.  If your child is found to be in R or A rated groups you risk having your account being banned.  Paltalk will not tolerate children in adult areas and will promptly remove them if found.

To avoid having your account restricted be sure you never allow your child to log on to Paltalk unless you are sitting with them and guiding them to be sure they stay in G rated groups.

Paltalk provides parental controls, please use them!

Distributing Paltalk hacks:
Paltalk is a free service and relies on advertising revenue as well as the kindness and good will of our subscribers.  Distributing hacks for free video, banner and popup killers, or programs that otherwise deny us revenue will result in you being banned from our service.

You may not reverse engineer or modify any part of our software or its extensions or dll’s, or create add-on programs that in any way hook into any part of Paltalk.  This includes video capturing schemes, bots, text scrollers, key loggers, etc…

Conducting business in a room without paying us:
We provide a free environment for anyone to chat on the internet.  If however, you are using Paltalk to conduct business or solicit funds in any way, you are required to purchase a commerce room.

If you have been warned about conducting business without paying, please stop your activities immediately and subscribe to our commerce room program.

Failure to comply will result in the suspension of your ability to create groups or to be an admin in ANY group on  Paltalk!

Posting links to malicious web sites:
This activity has no purpose but to cause harm to innocent users and will not be tolerated.  Paltalk is not a corral of playthings for your amusement, these are people. To purposely cause harm to a person’s computer will result in you being banned from our service.

Impersonating Paltalk persons:
You may not create any nickname or use ‘text tricks’ to impersonate Paltalk volunteers, employees, or representatives.  You may not attempt to deceive users by conducting bogus ‘user surveys’ or pretending to do account maintenance or upgrades.

Paltalk takes password theft seriously and if you attempt to deceive users for the purpose of obtaining passwords your account will be permanently restricted from our service.

Fraudulent payments:
Using stolen credit cards or credit card numbers is a serious crime. If you subscribe to any of our services using fraudulent information or credit cards, your account will be terminated and you will most likely be contacted by law enforcement. This is NO joke!  Paltalk cooperates with international law enforcement agencies when users break the law.

How to appeal a decision made by an admin:
You should be aware that all Paltalk admins work as a team and communicate regularly.  If you appeal a banning issue we will talk to the person who did the ban and if you deserve your ban it will stay.

Appeals made because of bans for inappropriate contact with minors or illegal activity will be disregarded.

Paltalk users should not attempt to contact office personnel by phone or by email for banning issues!  These calls disrupt normal business operations and are only forwarded to the admins anyway!
