Few Guidelines for the Authors about the content to be posted:
1. Content should be related to any treks with Trek Mates India.
2. Content can be any incidents/funny moments/unforgettable moments happened on any trek/event/tour by Trek Mates India
3. It is not necessary to write summary whole trek but a small travelogue of 25-30 lines can be enough. Whole travelogue is appreciable.
4. Care should be taken not to compare, name or spell the name of group or leads other than that of Trek Mates India.
5. As per our own  policy, we strictly adhere to the following guidelines:
a. Adult Content: We do NOT allow adult content on Blogger, including images or videos that contain nudity or sexual activity.
b. Child safety: We have a zero tolerance policy towards content that exploits children. Some examples of this include:
·         Child pornography: We will terminate the accounts of any author we find publishing or distributing child pornography. We will also report that user to law enforcement.
·         Paedophilia: We do not allow content that encourages or promotes sexual attraction towards children. For example, do not create post with galleries of images of children where the collection of images or text accompanying the images is sexually suggestive.
 c. Hate Speech: We want you to use Blogger to express your opinions, even very controversial ones. But, don't cross the line by publishing hate speech. By this, we mean content that promotes hate or violence towards groups based on race, ethnicity, religion, disability, gender, age, veteran status, or sexual orientation/gender identity. 
d. Crude Content: Don't post content just to be shocking or graphic. For example, collections of close-up images of gunshot wounds or accident scenes without additional context or commentary would violate this policy.
e. Violence: Don't threaten other people on your blog. For example, don't post death threats against another person or group of people and don't post content encouraging your readers to take violent action against another person or group of people.
6. Copyright: We do not take any responsibility for the content posted by Author/Authors regarding copyright. Please don't provide links to sites where your readers can illegally download other people's content.
7. Personal and confidential information: It's not ok to publish another person's personal and confidential information. For example, don't post someone else's credit card numbers, Social Security numbers, unlisted phone numbers, and driver's license numbers. Also, please keep in mind that in most cases, information that is already available elsewhere on the Internet or in public records is not considered to be private or confidential under our policies.
8. Impersonating others: Please don't mislead or confuse readers by pretending to be someone else or pretending to represent an organization when you don't. We're not saying you can't publish parody or satire - just avoid content that is likely to mislead readers about your true identity.
9. Illegal activities: Don't use Blogger to engage in illegal activities or to promote dangerous and illegal activities. For example, don't author a blog encouraging people to drink and drive. Otherwise, we may delete your content. Also, in serious cases such as those involving the abuse of children, we may report you to the appropriate authorities.
12. Malware and viruses: Do not create post that transmit viruses, cause pop-ups, attempt to install software without the reader's consent, or otherwise impact readers with malicious code. This is strictly forbidden on Blog.
We do not take any responsibility towards the content posted on any post by any of our author/authors. Our decision to modify/delete any post will be final and abide to all.
