At Pinterest, our mission is to bring everyone the inspiration to create a life they love, and it’s our guiding light in drafting and enforcing our content policies.

Not everything on the internet is inspiring, so we have guardrails for what’s acceptable on Pinterest and what isn’t allowed. Our moderation practices are always evolving to keep up with new behaviours and trends, and to create a more positive corner of the internet for the people on our platform. We continue to invest heavily in measures such as machine learning technology to fight policy-violating content on Pinterest. We also work with outside experts and organisations to inform our policies and content moderation practices.

We started publishing a biannual transparency report in 2013, and began expanding it in 2020 to include more information on the actions we take to uphold our Community Guidelines. In each report, you’ll find information on our efforts to keep our platform safe and inspiring, such as the number of Pin and account deactivations. Reports also include an insight into the volume of information and deactivation requests we received from law enforcement and government entities.
