Updates to our Acceptable Use Policy

image

From the earliest days of Pinterest, we’ve asked our community to follow our Pinning etiquette: be positive, be yourself and give credit where it’s due. These principles have been the foundation for all our policies, including the Acceptable Use Policy (AUP). Today, we’re updating the AUP to make it clearer (and to sound less like a robot!).

Now you’ll find detailed explanations for our content guidelines with example images that illustrate what we allow. You can always check them out if you’re ever unsure if something’s okay to Pin.

To keep Pinterest feeling authentic, we’ve also added guidelines about not getting paid per follow or Pin.

You can read through the new AUP for the whole list of do’s and dont’s.
