User Guidelines

Clouden strongly believes in freedom of speech. To be transparent about what is and isn’t allowed on your site, we’ve put together this set of guidelines. The following activity/material isn’t allowed on Clouden services.

Illegal content and conduct


Intellectual property infringement

Clouden is a publishing, rather than a file sharing platform, so we recognize that copyrighted materials are sometimes used in fair use context. We strongly support this and urge copyright holders to take this into consideration before submitting complaints. If you’re not sure, a good rule of thumb is to always ask the rights holder for permission before republishing their content.


We know that there may be different definitions of this, but generally, we define pornography as visual depictions of sexually explicit acts.

Technologically harmful content

Please don’t upload or link to malware, spyware, adware, or other malicious or destructive code.


Don’t claim to be a person or organization you’re not. (Parody and satire are ok though!)

Directly threatening material

We don’t tolerate direct and realistic threats of violence. (This doesn’t mean that we’ll remove all hyperbole or offensive language.)

Posting private information

Don’t share someone’s personal information without their consent.

Bear in mind that these are just guidelines — interpretations are up to us. These guidelines are not exhaustive and are subject to change.

If you believe a Clouden user has violated our Terms of Service or any of these policies, please report the violation. We review and investigate all complaints that we receive, but if and how we respond will depend on a variety of factors, such as the information available to us and the type of violation. We may also contact the user to inform him/her of the complaint.

If we’re not in a position to make a determination (for example, whether something is defamatory or not), we defer to the judgment of a court.
