Rhythm Rules

All individuals accessing or using Rhythm services must adhere to the policies set forth in the Rhythm Rules. Failure to do so may result in Rhythm taking one or more of the following enforcement actions:

  • 1. Temporarily limiting your ability to create posts or interact with other Rhythm users.
  • 2. Permanently suspending your ability to create posts and interact with other Rhythm users.

We will not permanently ban a user from listening to music through our services if a user hits the max strike limit of three strikes.

The community will eventually have a large say in the rules for Rhythm once we become more established as a product and business.
