If you feel there is any post or content on the coto Platform which is against our Community Guidelines or these terms, you can report the same to us. In aid of this we have provided for two parallel methods of grievance redressal on the coto Platform being.
      1. Moderators and Moderation Panel.Each community has the right to decide upon its code of conduct and rules to be followed by such a community and the moderators are entrusted with the job to ensure that all the members of the community follow such rules. We have given the power to moderators in each community to self-regulate remove content which is against the community guidelines of the coto Platform and the rules of their community as well as resolve concerns raised by users by reporting content within their communities. Each Moderator has been explained and provided with the guidelines on moderating content on the coto Platform.

        Moderation Panel acts as an appellate body which caters to the appeals made by any user with respect to the decision made by moderators. If any user wishes to report any content posted by the community owner or moderator itself, such report goes directly to the Moderation Panel.

      2. Grievance Redressal Officer.We have appointed a Grievance Officer, who can be contacted directly if a user has a concern about their experience. We have put together a robust Grievance Redressal Mechanism in place to help resolve any concerns or complaints raised by you with respect to content or use of our coto Platform. If you have to report a copyright infringement, it is advisable to approach the Grievance Redressal Officer directly. The Grievance Officer shall make an endeavour to resolve your complaint within 15 days of its acknowledgment. You may contact the Grievance Officer at grievance@coto.world.
    2. Each user who reports any content or against whom a report is made shall be notified by the coto Platform about the decision made by the Moderators, Moderation Panel or Grievance Officer as the case may be.
