What might I see while using the site?

Since JumpInChat allows anyone to broadcast, you may not be directly able to control what you see. This can involve people broadcasting what you may consider distressing or otherwise unpleasent.

While it is never fully possible to prevent this, you can reduce the risk by using rooms that only allow registered users or enforce a password. If you are room owner, you can enable these settings in your room settings.

Should you ever see a user broadcasting something that is against the terms and conditions, you should report it immediately.

It should be noted, JumpInChat is not intended for use by those under the age of 16, as explained in the terms and conditions. If you are a parent or guardian of a minor and are aware someone under your care is using the site, please inform us via the contact form.

Can I be recorded on cam?

Yes, you can always be recorded on cam. There is nothing stopping a user from recording their screen. You should never do anything on cam that you might regret if it were recorded or published.

Additionally, you should be certain you are not inadvertently displaying any personal or otherwise sensitive information on cam. You should also be aware that if you are broadcasting audio, people may be able to overhear things that could be considered sensitive or personal.

Should I ever give out personal information?

Never. Posting your name, social media accounts or email can be used to find more information about you. Unfortunately some people will use this information to harras or stalk you or others.

If you want to keep in contact with a user, send an offline message instead.

Should I post links that I post on social media?

Images uploaded to Facebook or Twitter for example, may allow people to find your account which you used to upload them. They may also contain sensitive meta information, such as geo location information or other image meta-data. It is therefore advised to upload images to a hosting service such as imgur instead.
