Our Terms set out our obligations to you and your obligations to us.
The agreement covers a lot of things, including a description of Instagram, the Service we provide to you, our commitments to you as a user and the permissions you give and rights we each have. We also give you information about when we could remove your content or shut down your account and how we handle any disputes if they arise.
You must be at least 13 to use Instagram, even if your parent or guardian approves your use of the app. If you want to report someone on Instagram who is under 13, you can do that here.
Everyone on the Service is prohibited from doing the following:
You do. You give us permission to use your content in certain ways that are all described in our Data Policy, including things like displaying your posts to your chosen audience, and processing your hashtags so others can find your content when they search. But we don’t own any of your content.
In our Terms, we get permission to use information about your activity to show how you interact with sponsored content, like ads, just the way we do on a regular post. For example, we might show your followers that you liked or commented on an ad. But right now we only do this for users that have a Facebook account and are over 18. Facebook users can turn this off in their Facebook settings, in the section called “Ads with your social actions.” Learn more here.
We might remove your content or restrict or delete your account if, for example, you violate our Terms or Community Guidelines.
Our Terms set out the service we provide to you, and what we require of our community members. It covers the commitments we think are needed to achieve a safe, inclusive and innovative service. We require everyone to accept those commitments in order to use the service. If you don’t want to accept them, you can always download your data and delete your account.
