Community Guidelines – Last modified: May 11, 2021
Our guidelines were developed to help make every experience
feel safe, respectful, and fun. Everyone who is a member of
Isthmus App, no matter which groups and communities joined
within the app, is expected to follow the
Treat everyone with respect
We believe that everyone should feel supported and welcomed.
That’s why we’ve created standards on misconduct, threatening
and rude behavior, unwanted contact, discrimination, and more.
Threatening and rude behavior
Aggressive, confrontational, and harassing behavior
is not allowed. Don’t use language that could be
disrespectful or threatening. Also, please be kind and
respectful during swaps or buys and sales. Please follow
through on commitments made and keep each other safe during
any in-person interactions.
You should always feel
safe and welcome. That’s why we don’t tolerate conduct we’ve
determined to be discriminatory. Do not discriminate against
someone based on traits such as age, color, disability,
gender identity, marital status, national origin, race,
religion, sex, or sexual orientation.
Keep private interactions confidential.
We assume that email and private message content is
intended only for the recipient(s). Do not post personal
names, addresses, tracking numbers, private messages, chat
transcripts or emails from members, community
moderators/leaders or Isthmus App.
Content considered spam is not
allowed and we will work with community moderators to
remove. This includes duplicate content within the app,
deleting and re-posting item posts at a high frequency,
click-bait, posts calling for likes/views/follows,
advertisements, and any other content geared toward personal
gain. We may also delete shared content from other
groups/sites that are irrelevant or lacking in purpose
towards swapping or community betterment. Listings noting
cross-posting to other platforms are also considered spam
and will be removed with a note.
We may remove

donations requests should be linked to verified charitable
entities with contact information clearly visible for all
members to confirm if need be. These will be treated on a

We have zero-tolerance for
fraud on Isthmus App. If you spot something suspicious, let
us know. Fraud is any attempt by members to misrepresent
themselves, the products they’re selling or swapping, or
saying they will ship or meet up and do not fulfill this
action. Look out for off-app contact, short-duration
listings, and unsafe payment methods that can’t be traced or
recovered if there’s a problem. We recommend using the
PayPal goods and services option if you are using payment so
you are covered by PayPal’s protection policy
We don’t allow the
listing of some items (may include but are not limited to):
prescription medications or drugs of any kind, illegal
weapons, firearms, knives, bodily fluids, breast milk,
hazardous materials, pets/animals, used personal items like
make-up and sex toys (Certain materials are porous in nature
and will act as a reservoir for bacteria, and depending on
the material, all efforts to ‘properly sanitize’ the item
may be ineffective. Isthmus App assumes no liability in the
trade of personal items and they are done so at the user’s
own risk.), currency trading, human trafficking, or any
other illegal items. We also currently do not allow car seat
or crib listings due to the possibility of expiration and
older items no longer being in accordance with local safety
acts and laws.
Your feedback matters
How to find help.
If you want to report an incident,
contact us at
email@example.com. If you find yourself in immediate danger, alert your local
authorities before notifying Isthmus App.
How our guidelines apply to you and to the community.
Isthmus App reviews all reports submitted to us
that may violate our Community Guidelines, and we may
investigate through a specialized team. Isthmus App reserves
the right to review on-platform as well as off-platform
conduct of account holders when reviewing accounts found to be
in violation of the guidelines listed here or found to be
deemed harmful to the Isthmus App platform based on the proof
of information received. Isthmus App reserves the right to
forward any content violating applicable laws to the
authorities for review without warning or explanation. Your
account may be put on hold until our review is complete. Not
following any of our guidelines may result in the loss of
access to your Isthmus App account.
Thank you for choosing to help make Isthmus App a safe,
kind, and welcoming community.
