It’s important to us that is a place to find things you love and get inspired. To make sure people feel safe and comfortable here, we require everyone to agree to and follow these rules.

We realize that in many cases these things are rarely black and white—for each pin we have to consider the image itself, as well as the surrounding context (like its description or the website the image came from). If there’s a question about whether something’s appropriate for our community, we’ll err on the side of taking it down.
