If this will be public, then you have to be very careful;

  • [You Agree not to] upload, post, email, transmit or otherwise make available any Content that is unlawful, harmful, threatening, abusive, harassing, tortious, defamatory, vulgar, obscene, libelous, invasive of another’s privacy, hateful, or racially, ethnically or otherwise objectionable;
  • upload, post, email, transmit or otherwise make available any Content that infringes any patent, trademark, trade secret, copyright or other proprietary rights (“Rights”) of any party; This includes linking to or redirecting to any content or copyright files hosted on a 3rd party resource / servers.

I then delve deeper, and found that the following are banned.

Pornographic/adult content
Proxy scripts
Chat scripts
Bitcoin / cryptocurrency faucet sites
File sharing / file storage scripts
Autolike scripts
Hacking scripts / PHP shell scripts
Mass mail scripts
Website scraping/crawling/downloading scripts
Cracked/pirated content of any kind

And this technically would be file storage/file sharing.

Pastebin type sites are OK if and only if you take proper precautions to prevent it from being abused. Pastebin type sites are often used to distribute malware, PII dumps, spam content and other bad stuff. If we find that your site is being used to do bad things like that, we will hold you responsible and may suspend your account, with or without the possibility for reactivation.
