Cookie Jar enables users to collaboratively create, organize and relive their favorite moments in a safe enviroment. We want users to be immersed and be transported back into the memories that are truly special - making them feel whole, excited, and happy about their lives. That being said, we cannot expect all generated content to be genuine – which is why our community guidelines outline what we do and don’t allow at Cookie Jar. If you come across any of these cases while using our platform, please report it to us. The integrity and safety of the cookie crew means a lot to us.
A quick summary for those who don't like to read...
Welcome your friends to Cookie Jar! If you've invited someone to the app, make sure to interact with them and share moments :)
Be yourself, and your own boss. It is your life, so create moments with purpose, creativity, inspiration, and joy. Remember that there is noone you need to impress, but yourself! Enjoy it.
Respect that there can be different perspectives on the same moment. We all experience things in our own way, and being able to combine these points of view is what makes Cookie Jar so unique!
Create with meaning. Don't just add for adding, but rather reflect on the purpose of the memory. What details of this moment make it worth remembering?
Differentiate between personal and group memory. Surely, there are a lot of moments you'd like to share with everyone - as you are used to do on your standard social media platforms. But Cookie Jar is different. If there is a moment that only involves you and only is important for you, keep it this way
Collaborate. When your friends share moments with you, make an effort to contribute to them and add your own touch of colour to the final piece of art!
Use common sense and lead by example. If you think you should't do something, then don't do it. Use the community guidelines and talk to us if you see something wrong.
Offend anyone. Regardless of the relationship you may or may not have outside of CookieJar with your friends, this is not a space for you to discriminate, defame, harass, flame or hold grudges against anyone. Remember: only positive vibes!
Be a know-it-all. The fact that you were part of a moment, doesn't mean you should know everyones point of view of it. Allow others to contribute their part!
Use CookieJar to promote yourself or your business. There are plenty of other platforms to do so... but Cookie Jar is really not the place :D
Use the app as your secret "illegal memory space". If you do anything illegal in your life, mind your own business, but don't upload it, promote it, or share it via Cookie Jar. We don't want to have anything to do with it!
Keep a nudity or sexual jar on Cookie Jar. Material which would be restricted or considered 'adult' (such as pornography or relating to sexual or graphic violence) isn't welcome.
Be a troll. Personal details and private information about yourself or any other person shoudl be kept private. Impersonate another person is also not allowed.
If you like to read, here is some more technical info for you...
