The Guidelines say:
“No videos that promote violent activity or depict real-life violence, self-harm, extreme gore, or cruelty toward animals.”
As a rule, Vimeo moderators will remove videos that:
- Show people being murdered, tortured, or physically or sexually abused
- Show self-mutilation
- Show animals being tortured or killed
- Display shocking, disgusting, or gruesome images
To avoid being removed, videos with these elements may not be sensationalistic, exploitative, or gratuitous. They must also be marked with a “Mature” content rating.
Videos that recruit for or propagandize terrorist organizations, regardless of whether they show actual violence, are never allowed.
