COMMUNITY GUIDELINES.

PicsArt was founded on the belief that there’s a creator in all of us. We believe everyone should have a way to make and share awesome content in a welcoming and safe environment. Those beliefs are the foundation of our Community Guidelines, which outline what we do and do not allow on PicsArt. Along with our Terms of Use and Privacy Policy, they reflect our commitment to keeping our community safe, inclusive, and welcoming.

As part of that commitment, we remove content that violates our Community Guidelines and restrict or ban accounts with severe or repeated violations. In certain circumstances, we will also report the accounts to relevant authorities and law enforcement. Determining whether the Community Guidelines have been violated can be very nuanced, and we reserve the right to make decisions we believe are appropriate for the PicsArt community.

Our Community Guidelines apply to everyone and to everything shared on PicsArt. We update them periodically based on community behavior, emerging issues, and user reports. In that way, you are an important part of helping us maintain a safe, open, and authentic shared space.
