member acceptable use policy

The Plan Your Start (PYS) Website Member Area (the ‘PYS Platform’) is a place intended to support and empower aspiring and emerging entrepreneurs. We believe if people don’t show respect and decorum, they can’t contribute to knowledge or listen to another person’s opinion or information. The following rules help everyone on the PYS Platform have a positive experience.


Engage with Others in a Constructive Way

Assume everyone on the PYS Platform come from diverse backgrounds, beliefs, and opinions but are all here to make the platform a great resource. It is OK to disagree, but be civil, respectful, and considerate to others.


No Hate Speech

The PYS Platform is a place for civil discourse and does not tolerate content that attacks or disparages an individual or group based on race, gender, religion, nationality, ethnicity, political group, sexual orientation or another similar characteristic. 


No Harassment and Bullying

Abusive behavior directed towards private individuals is not allowed. Repeated and unwanted contact constitutes a form of harassment. Content should not make threats against others or advocate violence.

Respect the Rights of Others


Identity and Deceptive Activity

While the PYS Platform does not require use of your real name, do not use the PYS Platform to impersonate another person, act as another entity without authorization, or create multiple accounts.


Intellectual Property and Personal Rights

Do not post content that infringes any intellectual property or personal right of another party. Writing taken from another source should be properly attributed and block quoted. Respect the PYS Platform


No Spam

Do not use the PYS Platform to post or attract spam.


No Malicious or Illegal Activity

Do not contribute viruses, malware, and other malicious programs or engage in activity that harms or interferes with the operation of the PYS Platform or seeks to circumvent security or authentication measures. Do not use the PYS Platform to engage in unlawful or fraudulent activity, or to promote illegal acts.


Abide by Other PYS Policies

Follow PYS's other policies such as Member Terms of Use and the Member Privacy Policy which PYS may add or change from time to time.
