At TikTok, we're committed to bringing unprecedented transparency and accountability to the technology industry. All year we've been taking steps to deliver on this commitment, including opening our Transparency and Accountability Centers, launching our transparency hub, and releasing regular Transparency Reports.
People don't flock to TikTok for politics or news, and paid political ads aren't allowed on our app – but we recognize the broad interest in the ways platforms are handling this election. That's why we've launched an elections integrity page within TikTok's Safety Center to bring visibility to how we're protecting our platform from misinformation, disinformation, and foreign interference.
This page details relevant content policies as well as when and how we enforce these policies. It has information about the partnerships and products we've built to strengthen platform integrity, including fact-checking partners and those with whom we developed our elections guide. It's also a place where we can share more on the actions we take to protect our platform, including content we regularly remove for violating our policies around disinformation, hate speech, and other topics related to the elections.
We continue to prioritize supporting our users with education and authoritative information on important public topics that may surface on our app. Our elections page is one of many ways we're providing accountability as we work to keep our community safe.
