Community
Guidelines

Eventbrite brings together a diverse community of millions of people to discover a variety of live experiences around the globe. The integrity of our platform is something we take very seriously. We developed these Community Guidelines to describe the types of events, activities, and content that we encourage on Eventbrite, and the types that aren’t allowed. These Community Guidelines are incorporated into the larger and more comprehensive Eventbrite Terms of Service.

Capitalized terms that have not been defined here, such as ‘Organizer', ‘User’, and ‘Services', have the same definitions that Eventbrite uses in the Terms of Service. We have the discretion to remove or restrict access to any content we determine violates our Community Guidelines or Terms of Service. To learn more about Eventbrite's Legal Terms, take a look here.

Building a Brite Community

Eventbrite is a place where anyone can create or find live experiences that fuel their passions. As a platform that values diverse opinions and a vibrant community, we are committed to providing a safe, inclusive, and respectful platform for the organization and discovery of live events.

We encourage you to create events of all kinds that bring your community together - whether you’re interested in wine, email marketing, dance or coding. We ask that your content celebrates different cultures, countries and voices, and is your own or procured appropriately.

To help you understand what we do not allow on Eventbrite, we created this set of Community Guidelines. The list isn't exhaustive, and we may add to it or improve upon it, so it is important that you continue to check in on any modifications or updates frequently.

How to Flag Content and Eventbrite’s Process for Review

Our goal is to promote a safe and respectful community. If you learn of any listing or content that may violate these Community Guidelines or our Terms of Service, please contact us right away, or in the case of an event, use the Report This Event link in the event's footer. We will review each report, and depending on the nature of the report, we may or may not follow up with you.

It's also important to remember that Eventbrite encourages a diverse, global community; content that you find offensive or controversial may not violate our Community Guidelines, and not result in your desired action. We truly value your feedback and the opportunity to hear from our community. If you believe our removal of your event or content is an error, please let us know by replying to our original email regarding your event. To make your event as authentic, respectful, inclusive, and safe as possible, read our Best Practices for a High Quality Event Listing guide.

Violations of our Community Guidelines

If we determine that the content violates our Community Guidelines, we may remove only the relevant content, take down the entire event listing, or take alternative action that Eventbrite determines to be appropriate given the circumstances surrounding the content. If the abuse of our Services is serious and severe (in our sole evaluation), we may also suspend or terminate the associated Eventbrite account. Note that certain content, while not in violation of our Community Guidelines, may not be appropriate for the majority of our community. In these cases, we may decide to make the content private or otherwise reduce its distribution.

If we believe there is a legitimate risk of physical harm to someone or a group of people, or direct threats to public safety, we not only take action on our site, but will also work with law enforcement, as appropriate and at our discretion. This includes issuing reports of child sexual abuse material to authorities such as the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. If you or someone you know is in immediate danger as a result of content posted on Eventbrite, please first contact your local law enforcement agency. Once you've reported the issue to law enforcement, click here to report the issue directly to Eventbrite.
