1. Disclosure of personal information

Do not post or ask for any names, addresses, phone numbers, licence plates, social media accounts or any other personal information, like nicknames, linitials etc.,

It is ok to post names of people of public interest, like Barack Obama is cool, kik accounts / email addresses with no names, like Jodel123 / jodler123@gmail.com, fictional characters or public places, like restaurants, bars.

Jodel is a platform providing user-to-user anonymity. Please keep personal data safe and do not publish it on Jodel.

This includes -also in case of suspicion- the transmission of relevant data respecting the data protection law.

2. Harassment / Racism

Do not post any insults, threats or any type of hate speech. Bullying is simply not cool.

Do not post any insults towards anyone based on race, ethnicity, gender, religion, sexual orientation, disability, or anything else.
