Mastercard compliance and Media uploads

Mastercard compliance and Media uploads

Fellow users, as of October 15th, Mastercard will enact new regulations that will affect the content sharing policies on the website. This will only applyto uploading media, and webcam broadcasting. All other facets of the site remain unchanged. This is not a change we desired, but MasterCard representsabout 50% of our sales, and we must comply if we want to keep the lights on and the servers chugging away.

The basic overview is that

  • If you would like to upload nude content you must verify that you are of legal age by completing our certification process.
  • You must only upload content of which you are the legal copyright holder or have permission to do so
  • Although we understand the privacy implications of this, we are dedicated to ensuring the safety and security of your personal information, as we always do.

    Due to the nature of this lifestyle, and the implications to some, we began the site with privacy being paramount. Unlike other major social media sites :

  • We do not sell ANY user data users to ANYONE.
  • We allow users to adjust their privacy settings to their degree of anonymity.
  • We do not cater ads, track you or analyze your usage for marketing.

  • This is how we have continued to grow year after year.

    We're working to make this as painless as possible and we appreciate your patience as we work out some kinks. Please don't direct your frustrations atthe already overworked volunteers that work day and night to keep this a safe and nurturing community. Please direct those frustrations at thecredit card companies and your government representatives.

    Thank you again for making this the great community that it is.

    • everyone should just upload their nudes anyways, let TN work for their money for once. (yes, they still havent even fixed the whole delete inbox messages after almost 2 years, that I know of))
      • Considering there are dozens of fake accounts set up every single day with fully nude female pictures on advertising various porn sites, this is clearly a load of crap. Those fake accounts are set up instantly and spam hundreds of accounts - I get 2 or 3 "friend requests" every day... I flag them up, but don't kow why I bother. This whole site is basically nothing more than a glorified porn portal.
        • I upload a topless photo of myself and it is deleted hours later. (I opted not to upload a nude one, because it would go against current guildlines and "Mastercard" ruling. So are you actually saying that women's breasts are vulgar and considered nudity? Are bare chested men allowed? Congratulations True Nudist, you have became exactly the thing nudists have been fighting against for years. I hope youy make a lot of money and are very proud of yourself.
          • I understand for a business point where you have bills. But I think they are out of their bounds to force other businesses to change their policies. Keep up the good work.
            • I have no reason to doubt the owners sincerity in their desire to protect the information we provide to them. However, having been the victim of cyber crime in the past where my data was compromised, I am not going to provide a drivers license or other such documents to anyone. It is too easy for cyber criminals to penetrate many web security features to grab such data. I realize that companies are trying to comply with the misguided federal legislation FOSTA/SOSTA but this Is nuts.
              • As someone who was a victim of identity theft and lost almost everything. One thing I can tell all of you is that no credit agency is going to tell you to send a photo copy with all your personal information attached thru the internet to a unsecured location. Mastercard , Discover and Visa never asked me for a photo ID . They just ask for specific information in order to verify who I am. Even when renewing your Lic online they tell you "DO NOT SEND YOUR OLD PHOTO ID "
                • We have joined today and having a look around only to find this MasterCard rubbish. Needless to say, we won't be staying plus going to cancel our MasterCard.
                  • I've followed some discussions of this policy on some of the group, and how it is being implemented. What is the definition of nudity being used? If a member posts a topless picture are they considered nude? If a woman posts a topless picture, is that acceptable? What if a man posts a topless picture? In most areas of the U.S.A. a woman can legally go topless anywhere a man can. It sounds like MasterCard is the 900 pound gorilla in the room. If we want this policy changed, we should take it to MC.
                    • 1. I regularly shop at Costco. Costco doesn't take MasterCard. Are they in danger of going under? No. 2. MasterCard is bullying websites to comply. The only way to stop the bullying is to stand up to them. Perhaps TN should join with other sites and the ACLU to stop the bullying. Caving in allows them to continue and encourages them to perhaps expand their insane rules.
                      • Oh my god you guys cry me a river. There are lots of sites, institutions, and agencies that request a government-issued photo ID for verification, not just adult sites such as this. All of which can be hacked and probably will at some point, among many other privacy concerns we all deal with- that's just the world we live in. However, I do think that TN should then go a step further by instituting better cyber security in response to this. But MC will do what MC wants to do regardless of their other sites.
