Campaign Guidelines

Authenticity

Do not create false pages or collect money for false projects. INeedMerch.com can only be used to fund real, creative activity.

Hate Speech

Hate speech is protected speech. Always consider your local, state, and national laws, but the site stands for free speech absolutism and will protect creators’ interests against sovereign and corporate threats. Do not abuse this protection.

Illegal Activity

INeedMerch.com reserves the right to review and remove accounts that directly or primarily promote illegal activity. We side with the interests of speakers, bands, and content creators but as an organization or individual be careful about your representations. For example, we believe it is protected speech and in the public interest to learn about drug or explosives sales and manufacturing. But a page merely funding the sale or manufacture of illegal drugs or explosives will likely not be funded.

Who Can’t Use INeedMerch.com Campaigns

After creating an INeedMerch Campaign page, any creator caught or convicted of making credible violent threats, committing violent crimes or fraud, or performing illegal activities like those aforementioned will be banned from the site permanently, no questions asked.

Members of organized crime, known terrorist organizations, OFAC debarred parties or similarly sanctioned US persons and foreign nationals may not collect funds through INeedMerch.com. If you have been convicted of sex crimes, fraud or money laundering you are also unable to use our service.

Guideline Enforcement

Creators who violate these community guidelines may be banned from using INeedMerch Campaigns. If you see a page on the site that you feel violates these guidelines, please send us an email. Please also realize that while you may not agree with someone’s activity or speech, it may not be a violation of these guidelines.
