edoocoo Community Guidelines

We've created a space on the internet solely for the use of educational professionals globally. We're hoping we've created a space where educators can collaborate on ideas, best practices and the sharing of support and good will. We want our users to reach out to each other and help create an environment of encouragement, trust and wellbeing. For this to work, we need to ensure all of our contributors behave in a civilised and respectful manner. People will inevitably write things other people don’t completely agree with. Sometimes this will enlighten. Other times it will annoy. We want our community to feel free to engage, but we think a few basic rules will help set the parameters of what we think is the right way to behave, to ensure you get the most from your Personal Learning Network

Please don't

Let's not even go there. Don’t threaten violence against anyone. This will not be tolerated at all.

Lets keep posts and comments within the boundaries of education. We'll try and respond to anything we deem as "hateful", and we reserve the right to take down hateful slurs, when they are highlighted to us.

We don’t tolerate harassment on edoocoo.

This includes:

- Circles or Posts that shame specific individuals, including images or altered images. 

- Circles or Posts with altered or unaltered copies of private communications posted without the explicit consent of a party to the communication.

- Circles or Posts with non-public, personal information intended to target, blackmail, or harass people

- Repeated personally insulting notes, responses, story requests, or writer requestsIntimate or explicit images taken or posted without the subject’s explicit consent (including revenge porn)edoocoo supports parody, commentary,humour and fair use.

Users may speak freely about matters and people of public interest. We support vigorous debate of substantive issues. However, we won’t tolerate abusive behaviour directed at private individuals. In deciding whether someone has violated the rules, we will take into account things like the context and nature of the posted information and applicable privacy laws.

Don’t post anything relating to minors that is sexual or violent. Don’t bully or harass minors.

Please don’t spam. We all receive enough of this during our daily lives. Don’t use deceptive tags or links or otherwise mislead others about what you’ve posted. Don’t embed malicious code in your posts. Don’t use deception to generate revenue or traffic. Don’t write posts aimed primarily at affiliate marketing.

Don’t register accounts or post content automatically, systematically, or programmatically. If we see this we will delete the accounts.

Respect the copyrights and trademarks of others. Unless you’re authorised to use someone else’s copyrighted or trademarked work (either expressly or by legal exceptions and limitations like fair use), don’t do it. It’s our policy to respond to notices of alleged copyright infringement under our Terms of Service and the Digital Millennium Copyright Act.

Don’t impersonate someone else to deceive people. Parody and ridicule are fine, but make clear that that’s what you’re doing.

No porn. You may want to discuss the use of porn but please don't use gratuitous images that may offend. Just pretend your mum might be reading your contributions...

Don’t post content that violates others’ privacy, including personally identifying or confidential information like credit card numbers, social security numbers, or non-public contact information.

Don’t use Edoocoo to engage in phishing or fraud.

Don’t promote or glorify self-harm, such as cutting, eating disorders like anorexia or bulimia, and suicide.

If it looks like you’ve violated these policies, we may send you an email and ask you to explain what you’re up to and why.

We understand context is important, and we want to understand the big picture. If you don’t adequately explain yourself or fix the problem, we may suspend or block your account or remove your content.

We care a lot about fairness and do our best to act that way. But we reserve the right to suspend accounts or remove content, without notice, for any reason, particularly to protect our services, infrastructure, users, or community. 

We reserve the right to enforce, or not enforce, these policies at our sole discretion. These policies don’t create a duty or contractual obligation for us to act in any particular manner.We also reserve the right to change these rules using the procedures in our Terms of Service.

If you have questions or feedback, let us know. Like everything on edoocoo, it is open to discussion.
