Community Policy

Welcome to the simplycommunity! As a member of the community: 

1) Ensure your contributions are relevant to the network topic.

This network is about internal communications and the digital workplace. Whilst we encourage our community to get to know each other, comments, questions or content you share should be around our community interest. 

2) Don’t sell or promote stuff!

Ensure your contributions are not of a promotional nature.

3) Complete your profile.

The more detail you add to your profile, the more people will want to engage with you and the more connected you'll be to fellow network participants.

4) Be yourself; please never impersonate another person.

5) Don't violate someone else's privacy.

You can post your own personal details and contact information (but do remember that this is a public forum), but don't post anyone else's personal details or contact information.

6) If you have a personal connection to a story or topic, disclose your connection or, where appropriate, do not contribute at all.

7) Cite your sources.

Attribute quotes and paraphrased comments to their proper sources.

8) Don't infringe copyright.

If you want to upload and share a copy of an image, text, video or any other content, make sure you have the right to reproduce them on the simplycommunity. Posting copyright material without permission may be unlawful. If you want to discuss someone else’s work, summarise it in your own words.

9) Remember this is a public forum.

Once your contribution is online, everyone with Internet access may be able to read it. Don't forget that you are legally responsible for what you submit. Please consider how others could perceive your contribution. Please make your contribution clear to ensure that it is not misunderstood. Many different types of people may view your contribution.

10) Watch your language.

Please be polite. Do not use swear words, profane, crude or sexual language. Respect the views of others within this community. 

11) Don’t be libellous or abusive.

You must not make or encourage contributions that are:

Defamatory, false or misleading;

Insulting, threatening or abusive;

Obscene or of a sexual nature;

Offensive, racist, sexist, homophobic or discriminatory against any religions or other groups.

12) Report inappropriate content.

Please help us maintain high standards of participation. If you consider that a contribution does not comply with these terms and conditions please report it by contacting us. This facility should be used where content is in breach of our terms and conditions, not simply because you disagree with something said.

The simplycommunicate team reserves the right (although not the obligation) to take down any contribution that it feels to be unsuitable, or which is reported as being unsuitable. In such an instance, the person that made the contribution will be notified. If you are aware that contribution has been removed, you must not deliberately resubmit the same contribution.
