Community Guidelines

We value our community for the deep participation that occurs within the comment section of each video — a commenting culture that encourages robust, thoughtful observations, feelings and insights. 

Although we don’t like doing it, occasionally comments must be removed for the overall health of the Nooreed community. To help you avoid the frustrations of comment removal, here are some reasons your comment may have been removed:

  • Not appropriate for the Nooreed audience: pseudoscience, zealotry, personal requests, proselytizing and self-promotion are not acceptable and will be removed.
  • Inappropriate language: chat-room banter, text-speak and combatively postured comments are not appropriate. Calls to violence are never acceptable.
  • Response to an inappropriate comment: Please use the Flag button instead.
  • Terms of Use violation: We will remove any comment that violates the Nooreed Terms of Use.
  • Monopolizing the conversation: Excessively posting the same comment or link across multiple videos or in response to multiple comments will result in the removal of all comments containing the duplicated material.
  • Stereotyping: Sweeping generalizations of any group or individual based on race, gender, religion, sexual orientation, or age will be removed, as will comparisons to Nazis.
  • Honesty: Don’t post false information, rumors, or hearsay. If you don’t know it to be true, please don’t say it.
  • Harassing or attacking the Nooreed team will result in the removal of your Nooreed account.

Our moderators are human so mistakes may happen. Please respond to the removal email you received if you feel your comment may have been removed in error.

Nooreed Videos Usage Policy

At Nooreed, our goal is to help students to learn about different careers. Each Nooreed Video is an interview with a professional and covers questions such as what college they went to, what are the pros/cons of the job, etc. Please note that that the opinions of the professionals do not necessarily represent the opinion of Nooreed nor the Company they work for.

Nooreed videos are made available on YouTube.com under YouTube's standard policy, not Creative Commons.

We encourage the Nooreed community, non-profit organizations, bloggers, news media and the like to share Nooreed Videos through social media and to embed individual videos in contextually relevant ways on non-commercial websites using embed code on Nooreed.com. Non-commercial usage of Nooreed Videos should follow the terms of our specific Creative Commons license – Non Commercial – Non Derivative and the guidelines that are listed below, which may be updated from time to time.

1)   How We Collect Information

  1. The information we collect depends on how you interact with us, the Services you use, and the choices you make. We collect and process information about you with your consent and/or as necessary to provide the products you use, operate our business, meet our contractual and legal obligations, protect the security of our systems and our customers, or fulfil other legitimate interests.

If you place an order for the Service, our third-party payment processor will collect certain information including payment and billing details. When you are asked to provide information, you may decline. But if you choose not to provide information that is necessary for certain products or features, those products or features may not be available or function correctly.
  3. Information collected automatically:When you use our Services, some information is collected automatically.

In some cases, that is because we have hired the third party to provide services on our behalf, such as site analytics. In other cases, it is because our web pages contain content from third parties.
