Communications Decency Policy

This policy is adopted in compliance with the
United States Communications Decency Act (CDA) of 1996.

Communications forwarding services offered by Blooth Enterprises LLC dba Privacy Partners FL shall not be in violation of the federal Communication Decency Act in any way. Therefore, each communication shall be evaluated by staff on a case by case basis for compliance standards. This policy is adopted with the understanding that even though a customer has freedom of speech under the 1st amendment, and the CDA Section 230 provides that “no provider or user of an interactive computer service shall be treated as the publisher or speaker of any information provided by another information content provider“; all forwarded/relayed communications bear the corporate logo and name of Privacy Partners and, therefore, must be within the confines of the decency standards set forth in this policy.

It is important when working with government agencies to maintain a level of professionalism and decorum. By maintaining certain standards, Privacy Partners is able to create relationships that help facilitate the needs of our customers.

If a communication fails to pass staff review, it will returned to the customer within 24 hours with a request for revision. The returned communication shall highlight the portion of text that is in violation with the decency standards of the Blooth Enterprises LLC. The customer shall have 48 hours to resubmit their request. If not response is resubmitted at the end of the 72 hours, the customer shall receive a full refund of any charges incurred.

Customers of forwarding/relay services should note that the following may violate the decency standards of Privacy Partners and may result in a request for revision.

  1. Excessive Textual Obscenity and/or Profanity
  2. Indecent Textual or Visual submissions
  3. Nudity or pornographic material (unless it is the basis of a code complaint)

Submitters should keep in mind that Obscene Content does not have protection by the First Amendment. For content to be ruled obscene, it must meet a three-pronged test established by the Supreme Court: It must appeal to an average person’s prurient interest; depict or describe sexual conduct in a “patently offensive” way; and, taken as a whole, lack serious literary, artistic, political or scientific value.

Indecent content portrays sexual or excretory organs or activities in a way that is patently offensive but does not meet the three-prong test for obscenity.

Profane content includes “grossly offensive” language that is considered a public nuisance.
