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
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
If you see something on the PYS Platform that you believe violates our guidelines or policies, please report it to us at email@example.com or planyourstart.com/contact.
Violating the Acceptable Use Policy of the PYS Platform may result in the removal of content or in the limitation or termination of a user’s access.
