1. The only exception to this rule is KitsuGay, which requires users to be over the age of 18, or the age of majority, whichever is higher. Registration to KitsuGay may also require a valid photo ID if deemed necessary, such as an influx of minors attempting to use KitsuGay.
2. Kitsu permits long-term aliases, so long as email may be submitted bi-directionally for as long as you are a member with Kitsu.
3. The only exception is KitsuClub, where sexually explicit or extremely suggestive text/media is strictly prohibited. Sexual equipment and similar objects are considered sexually explicit.

Users are permitted onto Kitsu services at the discretion of administration. Users can be terminated for any reason, with or without notice by moderation. Users are responsible for canceling any monetary membership they may have if they are terminated. Termination comes in two forms, biased and unbiased termination. If a user is terminated from Kitsu by moderation, unless explicitly stated otherwise, they are considered terminated with bias, and are barred from any current or future Kitsu services. If a user decides to terminate themselves, they will be termined without bias, and are free to join Kitsu at a future date. Users may terminate themselves from Kitsu by deleting any account associated with Kitsu. Users may also request termination by email from their verified emails to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line "FORGET ME REQUEST".
