Zero Tolerance PolicyEffective May 22nd, 2017
Thank you for your interest in Wing and the Wing application for your mobile device (the “Application”) provided to you by Wing AI Technologies, Inc. ("Wing," "us," “our,” or "we"). At Wing, we want to connect people through the execution of everyday tasks and bring communities together through the use of the Application, any other mobile applications offered by us, and our mobile services, web applications, web services, and software provided on or in connection with such applications or services (all such applications, services, and software collectively, the “Services").
Wing values the safety of the communities in which Wing operates. This Zero Tolerance Policy (this "Policy") describes certain services or classes of services that Wing does not allow while using our Services.
In order to avail yourself of the Services, you must agree to this Policy. Throughout this Policy, the word "including" can mean "including but not limited to." By accessing, downloading, installing, or using the Services, you signify that you have read, understood, and agreed to be bound by the terms of this Policy.
- What are Zero Tolerance Services?
The Services serve as a marketplace where people who seek to get tasks done are matched with independent contractors and businesses (“Fulfillers”) who are reasonably capable of executing these jobs, tasks, or offers. In connection with such marketplace, Wing aims to provide its Users with a wide array of choices and Fulfillers with a wide array of opportunities; however, there are certain services and certain classes of services that Wing does not allow on our platform for legal and/or ethical reasons (each, a “Zero Tolerance Service,” or collectively, “Zero Tolerance Services”). We maintain that we do not make any of these Zero Tolerance Service determinations in a way that is intended to be discriminatory towards any race, ethnicity, national origin, religion, sex, gender identification, physical or mental disability, medical condition, marital status, age, or sexual orientation. If you would like us to amend anything on this page, please feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will consider your request (though we cannot guarantee that your request will be granted).

- Sexual Assault - the act of paying a Fulfiller to sexually assault anyone; and
- Harassment - the act of paying a Fulfiller to harass anyone in any form;
- Individual Activities that Comprise a Larger Disallowed Activity - Wing does not allow Users to request services that cumulatively lead to a service that is disallowed, for example (but cases are not limited to this example - this is solely for reference), hiring a microphone operator to help film sexually explicit content in addition to hiring a camera operator to help film sexually explicit content. Our machine learning systems thoroughly monitor requests in real time to detect and flag such prohibited behavior, and attempting to request or participate in any such services may result in your account being deactivated; and
- Other Distasteful Acts - In addition to any acts explicitly prohibited above, Wing, under no circumstances, permits any form of Distasteful Acts, even if the recipient is yourself, knowing, aware, or accepting. Wing reserves the right to make reasonable determinations about what acts count as "Distasteful Acts" for purposes of this Policy. Please note: Wing has final determination regarding what acts are indeed Distasteful Acts. Furthermore, acts that are either only distasteful or both distasteful and unsolicited are not permitted. Although sending a significant other flowers may be classified as unsolicited, it is not distasteful and is therefore allowed. We permit unsolicited acts, provided in context they are expected, to a reasonable person, to be welcomed or harmless, the definition of harmless, in this instance, is to be defined by Wing on a case by case basis. Note that a spouse, significant other, friend, colleague, or family member’s identity must be linked to or known to a User's Wing account in order for a User to request services that are unsolicited by such spouse, significant other, friend, colleague, or family member.
- Termination of Use as a Result of Violating This Policy
Any attempt to knowingly or unknowingly request any Zero Tolerance Service should automatically be disallowed by the Services; however, if such request is not automatically disallowed, the act of requesting any Zero Tolerance Service will result in immediate termination of the User's account, and the incident will be reported to the relevant authorities if necessary. However, with respect to normal usage of our services, Wing is a privacy-centric company, and will, when possible, defend aggressively against any legal challenges for access to user data.
Any attempt to knowingly or unknowingly provide for, execute on, or carry out any task that constitutes a Zero Tolerance Service will, if found, result in immediate termination of the offending Fulfiller account with Wing, and the incident will be reported to the relevant authorities if necessary. Re-activation is a lengthy procedure that entails an internal investigation. To learn more about re-activation, please contact email@example.com.
- Help the Community
Wing and its officers, directors, employees, independent contractors, and agents pride themselves on being good members of their respective communities. As a User, we would like to request that you do not attempt to request any Zero Tolerance Services. Although we will likely disallow you from making the request, we may automatically terminate your account for attempting to make such a request in order to keep our communities safe and ethical.
As a Fulfiller, if you see or are made aware of any Zero Tolerance Service request that has entered the task queue, please help keep our community a safe and ethical one and report such tasks as soon as possible. Attempting to accept a Zero Tolerance Service request will result in immediate termination of your account.

- Fulfillment Partners - Zero Tolerance Activities

- Refusal to accept or provide services based on a person's race, ethnicity, national origin, religion, mental or physical disability, sexual orientation, sex, gender identity, medical condition, marital status, or age is unacceptable and is protected under applicable federal or state law. This type of behavior is not tolerated by Wing and will result in permanent loss of access to Wing's platform.
