Data Security

7billionideas takes the security of data very seriously. Data is captured to help provide the generic statistics to our users on their stats page. This is further explained in a pop up feature when you register. Data is secured on a 7billionideas database and is not distributed in any way. 7billionideas will only use this data to provide generic statistics around the platform in our marketing discussions e.g. 57% of our users are men, we have ‘x’ amount of women over the age of 50 using the platform.


7billionideas retains the right to use our user’s names and their ideas in our marketing messages to promote the platform and highlight the interesting user generated content. 7billionideas has the right to use any content posted, included our users name/profile pictures in our marketing information. We must stress – We will not be re-selling ideas. Our purpose is to inspire action.

Age Restrictions

7billionideas is an open social media platform to everyone over the age of 13. Globally anyone can sign up from many different walks of life. In effort to keep our content interesting to all users and of high quality, 7billionideas has imposed an age restriction of 13 and above in line with many other social media networks. This is also to help protect minors from any ideas which might contain adult content or indeed comments/ideas which might be offensive that have not yet been reported by our 7billionideas users or deleted by 7billionideas. This is also implemented to prevent users signing up who do not understand the platforms vision and using it in a incorrect way, effecting our other users. 7billionideas encourages people off all ages to develop and work on their ideas, but believe that minors should be careful about their activity online. To add, 7billionideas will not tolerate any perceived bullying on our platform. This will lead to an official warning or indeed automatic deletion.

Group Profiles

7billionideas has now included group profiles which is a separate login in process. 7billionideas has the right to deny any group. All applications shall be reviewed upon receipt with no guarantee of a speedy or indeed a successful approval. 7billionideas is keen to keep the integrity of the platform to the highest level and this will come into consideration. 7billionideas has the right to limit the amount of ideas posted by a group, the frequency of posts and the amounts of likes/dislikes and comments a group can make. To apply for a group, an administrator will have to be nominated who must have permission of the group or business they represent. 7billionideas is not responsible for false identity. If a group feels they are being mis-represented on the website, they must contact 7billionideas through the website and 7billionideas will review the situation immediately. Miss-representation is something 7billionideas takes very seriously.

Success Stories

7billionideas has a success stories section on our website. This highlights stories submitted by our users and edited by 7billionideas where users or groups have been inspired to act on ideas they’ve shared or not shared on the platform. 7billionideas has the right to edit all success stories and our users have the right to submit any success story for a review by 7billionideas. 7billionideas will then always hold the decision on whether or not it will be published. We encourage success stories to be submitted as this is our purpose. If a user wishes that a success story is removed after it has been published, they must contact 7billionideas to raise their concerns and it will be reviewed. 7billionideas may publish a success story making reference to a users name without their permission. Only positive stories will be posted.


A user deemed to be seen to advertising a company, website, forum or a product/service that 7billionideas disapproves off will see all comments/ideas deleted and they will receive a warning from 7billionideas. If they persist, they will be deleted. 7billionideas is an ideas platform, not an advertising platform.


7billionideas has introduced a reporting feature for users to be able to flag up ideas or comments they believe are either not an idea or are rude. 7billionideas reviews every report. 7billionideas does not need to make acknowledgement of the report unless a user writes to enquiry@7billionideas.com and asks for it. 7billionideas will then make a decision on what the action should be. 7billionideas would like to thank it’s users for helping to keep 7billionideas the platform we envisage it becoming – fun, thoughtful, creative and clean from abuse or rudeness.
