Community Standards

At Portmoto, we're building a place for people to learn, connect, and grow. We're on this journey together, and we want to ensure everyone feels welcome and safe and is treated with kindness and respect. We created these Community Standards to outline how we expect our users to behave and to be clear about what is and isn't allowed on Portmoto.

In short, when using Portmoto, always remember to be kind to others and to yourself. If you see something that you think violates the Community Standards, please let us know by sending an email to

These standards apply to all of your actions on Portmoto and with other Portmoto users. For more information about the legal relationship between you and Portmoto, check out our Terms of Use.

We appreciate your cooperation with these standards and commitment to making Portmoto a safe and respectful space. We're always learning, so as our community evolves and our platform grows, these standards may change too.


We expect everyone using Portmoto to treat others with kindness and respect. We want everyone to feel safe to express themselves, regardless of their identity or beliefs. To keep Portmoto a place where everyone feels comfortable being themselves, no one is allowed to endanger, threaten, harass, bully, or stalk another person.


We do not allow anyone to post any content that is sexually explicit, incites or glorifies violence of any kind, promotes the use of drugs or alcohol, suggests illegal activities, or depicts serious physical or psychological abuse.


At Portmoto, we take everyone's well-being very seriously. We're here to help provide resources for those struggling with mental health, and we may communicate with schools, districts, administrative organizations, and law enforcement regarding credible threats of self-harm. We don't allow content or behavior that depicts, glorifies, or encourages suicide or self-injury.


Portmoto always aims to be transparent about our platform and our expectations, and we expect our users to be honest as well. We expect that users will always represent their identity and their work truthfully. We do not allow any plagiarism or violation of other's intellectual property on the site, and we take active steps to identify, report, and remove content that is not your own.


Portmoto does not allow users to advertise, sell, or request payments from others on the platform. All 3rd party partner organizations seen on the platform have been carefully vetted by Portmoto to ensure they represent themselves and any opportunities they offer (scholarships, internships, jobs, etc.) with honesty and transparency and without any intimidation or pressure
