Harmful or dangerous content: We at Scholar Spectra believe that the Platform is a safe space for learners and educators alike, and we seek your assistance in maintaining its safety. With this in mind, any content that incites or promotes violence leading to physical or emotional harm or jeopardizes the safety of individuals is strictly prohibited on the Platform.

The Platform is intended for use only as outlined in the Terms and Conditions.

Hateful content: We understand that there may be instances of exchanging ideas and opinions, which are essential in the learning process. While we acknowledge individuals' right to express their opinions, we do not support or tolerate any form of hate speech. Hate speech refers to content whose sole objective is to incite hatred against specific individuals or groups based on factors such as race or ethnic origin, country, caste, religion, disability, gender, age, sexual orientation/gender identity, etc.

Violent and graphic content: Scholar Spectra is an educational Platform, and the content uploaded should be limited to educational purposes only. Violent or graphic content is prohibited.
