Zersey is a free service for communication, self-expression and freedom of speech. We believe Zersey increases the availability of information, encourages healthy debate, and makes possible new connections between people. It is our belief that censoring this content is contrary to a service that bases itself on freedom of expression.
However, in order to uphold these values, we need to curb abuses that threaten our ability to provide this service and the freedom of expression it encourages. As a result, there are some boundaries on the type of content that can be hosted with Zersey. The boundaries that we've defined are those that both comply with legal requirements and that serve to enhance the service as a whole.
