I. The Weed Tube Privacy Guidelines
Please review the following for information on dealing with your privacy issue.
We’re serious about protecting our users by addressing potential privacy concerns. Our privacy guidelines apply to all users across the world. In other words, while the video in question may not violate your country’s privacy laws, it may still violate The Weed Tube’s privacy guidelines.
II. How does The Weed Tube determine if content should be removed for a privacy violation?
For content to be considered for removal, an individual must be uniquely identifiable by image, voice, full name, Social Security number, bank account number or contact information (e.g. home address, email address). Examples that would not violate our privacy guidelines include gamer tags, avatar names, and address information in which the individual is not named. We also take public interest, newsworthiness, and consent into account when determining if content should be removed for a privacy violation. The Weed Tube reserves the right to make the final determination of whether a violation of its privacy guidelines has occurred.
III. What does uniquely identifiable mean?
To be considered uniquely identifiable, there must be enough information in the video that allows others to recognize you. Please note that just because you can identify yourself within the video, it does not mean you are uniquely identifiable to others. A first name without additional context or a fleeting image, for example, would not likely qualify as uniquely identifiable.
IV. How The Weed Tube’s privacy process works
If a privacy complaint is filed, The Weed Tube provides the uploader an opportunity to remove or edit the private information within their video. We issue notification of the potential violation and provide the uploader 48 hours to take action on the complaint. If the uploader removes the video during these 48 hours, the complaint filed will be closed. If the potential privacy violation remains on the site after 48 hours, the Weed Tube Team will then review the complaint.
Our privacy complaint process also accounts for cases that warrant urgent removal of contact or financial data.
V. Reporting a privacy violation
To file a privacy complaint, send an email to [email protected] As the complainant, your privacy is respected in this process. At no point will your identity or contact information be released to the uploader without your consent. Our communications to you about this process will be sent to your registered email address. Add [email protected] to your spam filter to ensure you receive these messages.

Tips on filing a complete privacy complaint
VI. Receiving notice of a privacy violation
The Weed Tube provides you, the uploader, an opportunity to remove or edit the private information within your video. We email you about the potential violation and allow you 48 hours to take action on the complaint. If you remove the alleged violation from the site within the 48 hours, the complaint filed will then be closed. If the potential privacy violation remains on the site after 48 hours, the complaint will be reviewed by the Weed Tube Team.
If we remove your video for a privacy violation, please do not upload another version featuring the same people. These individuals will likely file another privacy complaint or report you for harassment. We are serious about protecting our users and suspend accounts that violate people’s privacy.
What if I’ve obtained consent from the individuals?
Unfortunately we cannot accept or review agreements granting consent before the video was uploaded. Thus, we may still have to remove your video based upon the complaint.
