Rules and User Policy

The One Zoo Tree Platform makes use of community software to allow members to create their own profiles, join Groups and communicate with each other directly via an onboard messaging system. 

As international law places restrictions on the age of users without adult consent, the platform has made the MEMBERSHIP part available for students aged 14 and up

Parents take FULL responsibility for supervising members 13 and younger. All students will be required to read and agree to a strict USER POLICY.

We have a very strict USER POLICY and set of operating RULES. These documents, together with operational GUIDES can be found in the MAIN MENU, as well as within the FOOTER towards the bottom of all pages. 

If you want to join OZT as a member, you are forced by law to read through the USER POLICY, and agree to it’s terms when registering. Any violation of the USER POLICY and RULES will lead to immediate account termination. This will never be negotiable, as we value the safety of our users more than the platform itself!

A quick scan through the User Guide within the Member Portal will help you know how to use the different elements of the platform.
