Community Guidelines

Thank you for being part of our Switchback App. To ensure the best possible experience for all users, we have established some basic guidelines for participation. By joining Switchback, you agree that you have read and will follow the rules and guidelines set for these online communities. You also agree to abide by all relevant policies and procedures of the Association, including the Association’s antitrust compliance policy. You further agree to reserve posting comments for topics best suited to the medium. This is a great medium with which to solicit the advice of your peers, benefit from their experience, and participate in an ongoing conversation. Please take a moment to acquaint yourself with these important guidelines. In order to preserve a climate that encourages both civil and fruitful dialogue, Association reserves the right to suspend or terminate users account for users who violate these rules.

Nudity or Sexual Content

Switchback wasn’t invented to show off your most provocative photos. Seriously. We’re not asking you to comb your hair to one side and put on your Sunday best; just try to keep it classy and appropriate for public consumption. No nudity, no sexually explicit content, no sex toys. Also, if you choose to sport a thong, please note: suggestive poses are not allowed on Switchback. (If it’s in the Kamasutra, it probably shouldn’t be in your profile pic.) Photos that violate these guidelines may be deleted, and the most severe cases may result in account removal.


If you wouldn’t say it to someone’s face, don’t say it on Switchback. Keep in mind, there is a human being on the other end of your screen. Be respectful with anyone you interact with in the Switchback community. If you are disrespectful, offensive, threatening or rude to another user, we reserve the right to ban you from Switchback.

Violent or Graphic Content

We do not tolerate violent, graphic or obscene photos or profiles containing hate speech on Switchback, and will remove any such content that we identify. Any content that we deem disrespectful to others in the community may be removed, and the user banned, depending on its severity. With this in mind, please exercise restraint and respect for others in the community when posting hunting photos, as many users find images of dead animals disturbing.


We have a zero-tolerance policy on hate speech. Any content that promotes or condones violence against individuals or groups based on race or ethnicity, religion, disability, gender, age, nationality, sexual orientation or gender identity is strictly forbidden and may result in you being permanently banned.


Any reports of stalking, threats, bullying, intimidation, invading privacy, or revealing other people’s personal information are taken very seriously. That means no taking screenshots of other people’s profiles or conversations and posting or distributing them publicly. Switchback reserves the right to ban any user that has exhibited behavior that is threatening, intentionally malicious, or harmful to other users.


Switchback has a zero-tolerance policy on predatory behavior of any kind. Anyone attempting to get other users’ private information for fraudulent or illegal activity may be banned. Also, any user caught sharing their own financial account information (PayPal, Venmo, etc.) for the purpose of receiving money from other users may be banned from Switchback.


Don’t be fake. Be real instead. Soliciting other users is prohibited on Switchback. If the purpose of your message is to drive people to external websites via a link or otherwise, it is probably in violation of our terms of service and may get you banned from Switchback.

Phone Numbers or Private Information

No, we don’t need your personal information. Please do not publish a phone number on your profile. Personal information can be shared privately, and not broadcast publicly. Private information of any sort, such as phone numbers, social security numbers, addresses, passwords or financial information is subject to removal and may result in you being banned from Switchback.

Copyright Infringement

If it doesn’t belong to you, it doesn’t belong on your Switchback profile. Any of your profile content that someone else owns the copyright to (and has not granted you authorization to use) may be deleted.
