See the steps we take to ensure your privacy and protection with Wildouts


We are committed to our users' rights to privacy. We promise to share transparently all aspects of how the Wildouts website work in regards to privacy, terms, and personal data, and we are in full support of efforts to ensure your protection online.

The following is a collection of information and resources to help answer any questions you have about your experience with Wildouts. We're grateful for your interest and proud to have you as a part of our community!

Terms of use

We want to keep Wildouts a positive, fun and spam-free community which should be welcoming for anybody wherever they're from and however they look like. You can help by following these terms of use. These terms apply to our entire website.

These terms are a legalese-free version, for the legal version check below.

Be nice

The most simple rule on this site. Just be nice and kind. Try to help people. Have patience.

Don't be sexist, racist or self-righteous

That means no misogyny against women, misandry against men, xenophobia against anyone. If you think it might offend a lot of people or the other gender, it’s probably not for here. Think about how you'd talk to a stranger in a cafe you just met, that's the acceptable level. But on the other hand, if you want to spread self-righteous virtue signaling woke-ness preaching by mobbing people, don’t do it here. This includes shaming people, for example for their identity, for activities like flying or eating meat (hello vegans) or anything else. Most of all it breaks the #1 guideline on Wildouts which is be nice and #2 don't be mean.

Don't discuss any politics

We know in our times everyone’s obsessed with discussing politics. But it mostly just makes people fight each other on the internet. Discussing and/or sympathizing with national socialism (and also racist, racial supremacist-type stuff) or communism (also neo-marxist ideologies) is especially not accepted. They were both responsible for millions of deaths in the last century, so go and find another site to do that, don't do it on here.

Also this is NOT the place for attacking people with your identity politics, or activism. This is a site about outdoor sports and recreation, not politics and not activism.

We have a zero-tolerance policy for politics and we will permanently suspend accounts for it.

Don't discuss religion

Simple and similar reason as above. Bringing religion into the conversation usually only results in people getting triggered by it as they're either religious or not. Just avoid the topic.

Speak English

We're an English-speaking community as that's the most accessible language in the world to communicate in. Our founder isn't native English, nor is our team as they're from around the world, so for us it's a second language and effort too. But we do it because it helps to include everyone. Not speaking English excludes people from conversations.

Don't share your phone or email in public

For your own safety, do not share your phone number or email in public in the chat or other parts of the site. People can contact you via DM and ask you there. There's tens of thousands of people who can see/scrape your contacts and spam you.

Posting links/URLs is limited

To reduce spam, links posted by newly active members may be deleted automatically. Once you regularly participate, this restriction will be lifted. Any attempt at bypassing the moderation process can lead to account suspension.

Don’t ask or give people medical advice

If you’re sick, see a local doctor. If you’re depressed, find a local or remote therapist. Talkspace is nice (we’re not affiliated). Remember: strangers on the internet probably do not have the answer to your medical or mental condition.
