Community Guidelines 

Learning Time aims to build and maintain a friendly community of families that support and help each other. Our community represents a diverse demographic of users that we hope to foster and protect. As such, when you use our Service, you are agreeing to our Terms and these Community Guidelines. Overstepping these boundaries may result in deleted content, disabled accounts or other restrictions. Furthermore, you can also play a part in fostering a friendly community by contacting us in any instances where you find that there has been a violation of our Community Guidelines. 

As always, don’t claim others’ intellectual property as your own. Share only photos that you’ve taken or have the right to share. 
  • Post photos that are appropriate for diverse audiences and that, to your reasonable knowledge, will promote a friendly community. We can and will remove content that contains credible threats or hate speech, content that targets private individuals to degrade or shame them, personal information meant to blackmail or harass someone, and repeated unwanted messages. It's never OK to encourage violence or attack anyone based on their race, ethnicity, national origin, sex, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, religious affiliation, disabilities, or diseases. When hate speech is being shared to challenge it or to raise awareness, we may allow it. In those instances, we ask that you express your intent clearly. Serious threats of harm to public and personal safety aren't allowed. This includes specific threats of physical harm as well as threats of theft, vandalism, and other financial harm. 
  • Foster meaningful and genuine interactions. Help us stay spam-free by not posting repetitive comments or content, or repeatedly contacting or harassing people. 
  • Follow the law. Our LT forum is not a place to support or praise terrorism, organized crime, or hate groups. We have zero tolerance when it comes to sharing sexual content involving minors or threatening to post intimate images of others. While posting nude or partially nude photos of your own child is generally allowed due to the demographic and nature of our community, LT reserves the right to remove any content that we deem inappropriate or posted with malicious intent. For safety reasons, there are times when we may remove images that are shared with good intentions, but could be used by others in unanticipated ways.

    Maintain our supportive environment by not glorifying self-injury. The LT community cares for each other, and can be a place where people find support. Encouraging or urging people to embrace self-injury is counter to this environment of support, and we’ll remove it or disable accounts if it’s brought to our attention.

    Orders

    When you make an order, you are making an offer to purchase, and such offer is subject to our acceptance.  Your receipt of an order confirmation from us does not signify our acceptance of your order, nor does it constitute confirmation of our offer to sell.  We reserve the right at any time after receipt of your order to accept or decline or cancel your order (in whole or in part) for any reason.
