Vine impersonation policy

It’s important that our users are able to reliably identify the source of the content they’re interacting with. As such, please follow the guidelines below to ensure that your Vine account is in compliance with our policy on impersonation.

Content creation

  • As stated in the Vine Rules, using your account to impersonate others is prohibited. In other words, don’t create a Vine account that might confuse users into thinking it officially represents a person, business, or other organization when it doesn’t. Accounts found to be in violation of our impersonation guidelines may be permanently suspended.

Parody, commentary, and fan accounts

  • Parody, commentary, and fan accounts are permitted on the Vine platform. In order to ensure that users are aware that your account is a parody, commentary or fan account, please identify it as such in the following areas:
    • Avatar: The avatar should not be the exact trademark or logo of the account subject, or portray another person in a confusing or deceptive manner.
    • Username: The name should not be the exact name of the account subject without some other distinguishing word, such as “not,” “fake,” or “fan.”
    • Description: The description should include a statement to distinguish it from the account subject, such as “This is a parody,” “This is a fan page,” “Parody Account,” “Fan Account,” “Role-playing Account,” or “This is not affiliated with…”

Please note that your account must be fully compliant with the Vine Rules and Terms of Service in addition to meeting these requirements.

Reporting an impersonation

If you discover an account that you think is impersonating you or your organization, please report it by contacting Vine Support. Please note that we require the individual or organization directly involved or someone legally authorized to act on their behalf to report the issue.

Our team will investigate the issue and let you know whether the account violates our policies. Keep in mind that we rarely remove accounts with the same name but no other commonalities with you or your organization.

Restoring your suspended account

If your account has been suspended for impersonation, please contact Vine Support if you would like to edit it in order to comply with our guidelines. Once we review your account, we may restore it or provide instructions on how to comply with our guidelines. Please understand that your account may be subject to permanent suspension if you fail to comply with our guidelines on impersonation or if it’s found to further violate the Vine Rules.

Note: The accepted formula that Auxiliary Mode Inc. uses to calculate the CPM range is $0.45 USD - $25.00 USD.

The range fluctuates this much because many factors come into play when calculating a CPM. Quality of traffic, source country, niche type of video, price of specific ads, adblock, the actual click rate, watch time and etc.

Cost per thousand (CPM) is a marketing term used to denote the price of 1,000 advertisement impressions on one webpage. If a website publisher charges $2.00CPM, that means an advertiser must pay $2.00 for every 1,000 impressions of its ad. The "M" in CPM represents the Roman numeral for 1,000.
