Terms of Use

As a visitor to Amplify, you agree to follow the rules listed below. Those who violate these rules will jeopardize their membership and be subject to dismissal from the site. We also reserve the right to edit or delete posts that violate these rules.

1) Material on Amplify is largely intended for those ages 17-29. Anyone younger should consult a parent, guardian, or other responsible adult before reading or posting on the site.

2) Amplify is a project of Advocates for Youth – and Advocates for Youth is a registered 501(c)3 non-profit organization. This means that Advocates and all of its work is totally nonpartisan and must remain disconnected from federal and state elections. Advocates for Youth does not endorse or support any party or candidate for public office.

This means that community members must refrain from discussing elections, candidates for office, and electoral campaigns. Discussion of issues, legislation, policy, and positions held by elected officials is totally fine – but postings about any candidate or campaign will have to be removed. Any hyperlinks in your post must also abide by these rules.

3) Users are strongly encouraged to back up all assertions with facts (and preferably links to supporting materials) whenever possible.  We reserve the right to correct false information within your posts and comments.

4) Please avoid profane and gratuitously explicit language as well as sexually graphic or pornographic images. Any material that demeans an individual’s sexuality may be removed. You may not link to any material with profane or explicit material.  While disagreement is a normal part of discussion, personal attacks are not permitted.

5) This Agreement shall be governed by the laws of the United States and the District of Columbia, applicable to agreements made and to be performed therein without regard to conflict of laws principles. BY CONTINUING TO USE THE SERVICE, YOU AGREE TO ABIDE BY THE TERMS OF THIS AGREEMENT.
