edoocoo Community Guidelines
A few rules we'd like to highlight
edoocoo is a place for the educational community to come together and celebrate the amazing work you are all collectively doing. It's a place where we promote a free exchange of ideas, and open discussion. We know that every now and then, these discussions may get heated, with other members posting and commenting on things you really do disagree with.
www.edoocoo.com is a educational community site which is operated by edoocoo Limited (we or us). We are registered in England and Wales under company number 08952416 and we have our registered and trading office at 4 The Woodlands The Grange, Hartford, Northwich, England, CW8 1GJ.
These standards apply to each part of a contribution made on or uploaded to this Website. The standards must be complied with in spirit as well as to the letter.
😃 Things to Do
It's easy for some text to be taken out of context, so a few extra words can ensure the tone is taken correctly. It takes just a couple of seconds to say "Please" and "thank you", but they really can make all of the difference.
Edoocoo is all about creating an environment for educators where they can thrive, collaborate and flourish. If you think you can be of some help to a question asked, be supportive and help someone out.
Think before you write
This is super important. Always try to take 10 seconds to think before you either post or comment on a post. This is your professional community, and we want to you to shine, your words to be ordered and amazing and basically make you look like the educational superstar that you are.
Check before you upload
Check, check and double check your words.
Think if you would like to read the article. Is it accurate? Is it too long, not detailed enough, or is the balance just right? Check it, and then upload.
Report anything you read, or anyone you think is offending
If you do see anything that you think is offensive or in breach of these Network Rules, send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll take a look. We'll look at what is being said in context, and take appropriate action.
👿 Things we will not tolerate
Threats of Violence
We all get heated, but let's not even go there. Don’t threaten violence against anyone. This will not be tolerated at all.
Nasty, Hateful Slurs
Lets keep posts and comments within the boundaries of common decency and education. You must not use the Website to promote any kind of discrimination based on race, sex, religion, nationality, disability, sexual orientation or age and your contributions must not contain anything which is obscene, offensive, hateful or defamatory.
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 and/or confidential information or data (whether or not intended to target, blackmail, or harass people)
Repeated personally insulting notes, responses, story requests, or writer requests
Any nude, intimate or explicit images (including revenge porn)
edoocoo supports energetic debate. We support humour, parody, straight talking and people's opinions. Users may speak freely about matters and people of public interest. However, we won’t tolerate abusive behaviour directed at private individuals. In deciding whether someone has violated these Community Guidelines, we will take into account things like the context and nature of the posted information and applicable privacy laws.
Harm to Youngsters
We know you won't, but just so everyone is in agreement: don’t post anything relating to minors that is in any way harmful, sexual or violent.
Please no spam. It just annoys everyone.
We all receive enough of this during our daily lives. You can link to your own website, but please be clear that it is a link. We want to keep edoocoo as a community focused around content, not idiotic misleading links. Don’t use deceptive tags or links or otherwise mislead others about what you’ve posted.
Don’t use deception to generate revenue or traffic. Don’t write posts aimed primarily at unsolicited or affiliate marketing.
Don't use edoocoo to engage in phishing.
Mass Registration and Automation
Don’t register accounts or post content automatically, systematically, or programmatically. If we see this we will delete the accounts.
Don’t embed any malicious code or software in your posts or anything that you upload to or transmit via the Website. This includes, but is not limited to: viruses , Trojan horses, worms, time-bombs, keystroke loggers, spyware, adware or any other harmful programs or similar computer code which are designed to adversely affect the way anyone's computer software or hardware works.
Copyright and Trade Mark Infringement
Respect the copyrights and trade marks of others. Unless you’re authorised to use someone else’s copyrighted or trade marked work (either expressly or by legal exceptions and limitations like fair use), don’t do it.
Don’t impersonate someone else or misrepresent your identity to deceive people. Parody is fine, but make it clear that that’s what you’re doing. You may not use our Website in any way that is fraudulent, or has any fraudulent purpose or effect.
No porn. You may want to discuss the use of porn in an educational context, but please don't use any images. Just pretend your mum might be reading your contributions...
Promotion and Glorification of Self-Harm
Don’t promote or glorify self-harm, such as cutting, eating disorders like anorexia or bulimia, and suicide. But these issues can be discussed freely.
As a general point, you shouldn't use our Website in any way that breaches any applicable local, national or international law or regulation or promotes any illegal activity. You should also make sure that you do not exchange any information on the Website which could be in breach of a legal duty you owe to someone else, e.g. a contractual duty or a duty to keep something confidential.
If You Break the Guidelines
If we get reports of a violation of these Community Guidelines, we may send you an email and ask you to explain what you’re up to and why.
If we decide, in our discretion, that you have breached these Community Guidelines, we reserve the right to suspend or block your account and/or remove or disable access to your content. edoocoo is a platform for discussion and collaboration, but there need to be boundaries.
We reserve the right to suspend and remove accounts or remove content, without notice, for any reason, particularly to protect our services, infrastructure, users, or community.
We may take legal proceedings against you for the reimbursement of all of costs which arise as a result of your breach.
