2. Use of the Telesocial Network

Telesocial is a powerful voice calling platform, and as a user of this great power you agree to behave with the utmost care in preserving these main ideas:

Respect User Privacy

Voice calling can be fun but can be annoying as well as spammy — there’s a lot that you can do as a developer to make the voice experience seamless and non intrusive. In most all circumstances, call requests should be prompted and made when requested by active users and those users who have requested certain kinds of calls. Respecting the user means only delivering calls or setting up talkspaces or recordings when users request them — don’t make the request on their behalf.

If all calls are opt-in, that is, requested and given permission, then the user experience is great and highly rewarding, social and viral. Always ask users if they want to join calls, initiate calls, or make or distribute media by prompting the user for permission.

Your application should not call users or initiate calls that are not opt-in or given explicit permission by the user. If you follow these rules and even add more granular control of when to initiate calls or refuse calls, your users will value the flexibility and utility of voice in your application even more and drive further adoption. Your application should not engage in subversive or misleading, confusing or deceiving engagement with users, confusing the source of the calls, or the purpose of the voice features contained within Telesocial. You may also not use Telesocial to impersonate others or deceive users, mislead or in any other way misuse the

Telesocial service.

Don’t Spam or distribute Spam

Since your application has the ability to distribute audio media and make voice calls, you may not use the system to send and distribute spam or any third party advertising that does not comply with our spam rules.

Be a good partner to Telesocial
