These Guidelines and our Terms and Conditions are designed to ensure that every user has a safe and enjoyable experience on AuPaired. Failure to adhere to these guidelines may result in losing access to our platform.
Upload only your own photos
We take copyright very seriously. If you don't own the rights to a photo or video, please don't post it.
Do not include personal information in your profile
For the safety of all our users, we ask that you use AuPaired's chat functionality to communicate with au pairs or host families until you are ready to move to another platform. This means that we do not allow personal information such as email addresses or phone numbers to be posted in your profile.
Respect all users
We are a diverse community. This means you should respect other people's beliefs, interests, sexuality and property while on AuPaired. AuPaired takes a strong stance against hate speech, rude or abusive behaviour, bullying, and misogyny. You should behave the same way on AuPaired as you would in real life. Additionally, we encourage all of our users to report anyone who does not follow these behavioural guidelines. As a community rooted in kindness and respect, we expect all of our users to respect each other, themselves, and the AuPaired staff.
Send only original messages to other users
We strongly advise against copying and pasting the same message to every connection. We encourage our users to read profiles, learn about other people’s interests, and send an appropriate, relevant message to each match. We promise this will increase your chances of engaging in conversations.
Don't pretend you're someone you're not
As previously stated, do not post photos that are not of you, and don't describe yourself in a way that is inaccurate or misleading.
When posting photos to your profile on AuPaired, please stick to these guidelines
- No nudity of any kind, including shirtless or in bikinis/swimwear or underwear.
- Your face must be clearly visible in all photos.
- Please do not post photos of children on their own. They must be in the photo with an adult, and fully clothed.
- No watermarks or text overlaid.
- No pornographic material.
- No graphic hunting photos.
- No weapons of any kind including guns or knives.
- No personal contact information in your photos.
Don't do anything illegal on our platform
Illegal activity will not be tolerated on AuPaired. This may result in being banned from the platform, and/or being reported to the authorities.
AuPaired isn't for selling things. If you try to use it as a marketplace, you'll be banned.
No photos of children on their own. They must be in the photo with an adult and fully clothed
AuPaired is a platform for people aged 18 years and older, so we don’t allow children to be alone in photos as representatives of their parents. In addition, for the safety of both children and their parents all children must be completely clothed.
If you don't follow these guidelines, you'll receive a warning (unless our team decides to block you without warning at our discretion). If you ignore this warning, you risk losing your account. These guidelines are designed to make AuPaired a friendly and safe place for all our users.
