Content Guidelines 

Zype is proudly content agnostic. We understand that customers have content that covers a wide array of topics and themes, and we love and welcome (almost*) all varieties without judgment. We’re here to help you find the right platform that will enable all your content to thrive! 

* Customer content must not be defamatory, indecent, or infringe upon intellectual property or data privacy rights of any third party. Read our full Terms and Conditions for more details.

Each marketplace has it's own content guidelines. Each marketplace reserves the right to reject apps that do not meet one or any of these guidelines. 

We suggest you read the content guidelines. Below we've outlined the top 

If you have any questions about whether your content violates any of these content guidelines feel free to email support@zypemedia.com.

CANs

  • Create a private channel if you want to reach specific audiences without making their channel public (ex. Adult content)
  • Post about Cannabis. Smoking, pictures, descriptions and properties of different strains is permitted. Check out PRØHBTD

CANs

  • Post or quote religious text but the quotes or translations must be accurate and not misleading
