Welcome to Nouzie – Your Local Online Source

Nouzie, your trusted independent online newspaper, is rooted in Fredericton and dedicated to staying paywall-free. As Nouzie embarks on its expansion journey into new regions, both content and advertising will be regionally tailored to provide you with the most relevant information.

At Nouzie, accessibility is paramount. We proudly offer a free and open platform, accessible to all without the need for any account or registration. Furthermore, Nouzie extends an invitation to all registered individuals to share their insightful and engaging articles of general interest, fostering a vibrant community. These terms govern your utilization of the Nouzie platform, thoughtfully provided by Nouzie Media/Rabbit Town Community Technologies Inc.

Our commitment to your privacy is unwavering. We do not engage in tracking your web activities, such as ad tracking services, either on the wider internet or within our website. Our advertisements are curated based on the context of the page or story you engage with, not on your personal attributes.

Nouzie’s mission is to empower individuals with a local platform to cultivate community bonds and spotlight local events and interests. Unlike conventional social media platforms, our content is meticulously categorized, creating an amalgam of an online newspaper and a social hub, effectively forging a unique online community. Users of our platform are categorized into three distinct groups: general visitors, members, and businesses.

For General Visitors:

Nouzie warmly welcomes you to explore without the need for an account. Visitors of all ages and from various geographical locations can freely peruse our content and engage with articles through comments. All comments undergo moderation for content appropriateness and are typically approved within 24 to 48 hours. As a general visitor, the opportunity to evolve into a member and unlock additional features is always available.

For Members:

Membership at Nouzie is both cost-free and open to all. It is important, however, that any content shared aligns with our audience’s interests. Membership entails several benefits, including:

The ability to contribute articles. Initial articles from members undergo moderation. With consistent and appropriate contributions, members gain the privilege to post instantly. All posts must include imagery and be categorized. Submission of content implies your ownership of the material or authorization from the copyright holders. Private messaging between members, while subject to oversight, remains confidential and is not accessible to the general public, hence images are optional. Members can establish and participate in specialized groups. These groups are exclusively accessible to members and cover a wide spectrum of topics, as long as they adhere to our appropriateness standards.

Kindly refer back to this section for updates on member capabilities.

For Businesses:

Nouzie’s financial foundation rests on advertising and for-profit business promotions. Non-profit enterprises are encouraged to create memberships, under the organization’s name, to post as regular members. Additionally, our reposting on Nouzie from Facebook service is at your disposal, with no charges involved. Comprehensive details are available in our advertising kit (click here for more information). For-profit businesses have an array of avenues to engage with Nouzie’s audience:

Explore online advertising, enriched with the option to include coupons or discount codes. Delve into sponsored content, whether a single article or a series of five posts. Opt for our Facebook reposting service on Nouzie, simplifying interaction with the audience. Although slightly less convenient, businesses may also post directly on Nouzie for the same cost. Find a comprehensive array of advertising options on our dedicated advertising page.

Guidelines for Conduct on Nouzie:

We prioritize responsibility for your actions and viewpoints on Nouzie. Therefore:

When interacting as a general viewer leaving a comment or as a member, accurate personal information, including your real name and valid email address, is mandatory. Failure to provide precise details could result in comment classification as spam and post removal. Member profiles should be genuine, with only one account per individual, exclusively for personal use. Safeguard your member password and refrain from sharing it with others. Members are prohibited from posting business-related content (direct business promotion) on personal accounts. However, a designated business account can be created for this purpose.

Nouzie extends its open platform ethos to everyone, with an exception:

Accounts may be blocked in cases of terms violation.

Given Nouzie’s inclusive nature and lack of age restrictions, all content should be considered suitable for a general audience (rated G). Additionally, content must either originate from the contributor or have the necessary permissions from the original author.

Defining Inappropriate Content:

Content that infringes copyright regulations, including images. Material deemed illegal, discriminatory, or fraudulent. Any form of hate speech, violence, or corruption. Content containing explicit language. Attempts to introduce viruses or malicious code, including those embedded in images.

Nouzie maintains a strict stance against inappropriate content. Violations of these guidelines will lead to immediate suspension from the platform, with no option to create another account.

Evolving Our Terms:

As we consistently enhance our service and introduce novel features, periodic updates to these terms may be necessary. In cases of substantial alterations to our terms, users will be duly informed beforehand. After an update, adherence to the revised terms is mandatory.

Liability Parameters:

All forms of advertising on Nouzie are offered as paid services and are not endorsements. Nouzie bears no responsibility for any service, product, or event advertised.

Welcome to Nouzie, your gateway to local insights and connections. We look forward to your enriching contributions and vibrant interactions.
