Code of conduct

We want all visitors to the Development and Transition website to have a constructive and enriching experience. Accordingly, all users of the website and any comments they make on it must comply with this Code of Conduct. Your use of our platform means that you accept and agree to abide by it.

Your comments on this website:

Must not infringe upon anyone else’s rights, including copyright. Your comments must not plagiarize or infringe the rights of any other person including any copyright, database, trade mark, trade secret, privacy, and publicity, personal or proprietary rights of any kind. It is your responsibility to make sure that copyrights are handled correctly. 

Must not contain unlawful or objectionable content nor involve disruptive, offensive or abusive behavior. Please be respectful and civil to other members, even if you disagree with them. Material that is unlawful, harassing, threatening, defamatory, obscene, offensive, abusive, hateful, inflammatory, profane, racially, sexually or religiously offensive or otherwise objectionable or unlawful is not acceptable and will be removed by administrators immediately.

Must not contain unsuitable or irrelevant website addresses or URLs. Links to pornography, commercial or other inappropriate content may be deleted.

Must not promote illegal or anti-social behavior. Comments must not contain violent or sexually explicit material or advocate, promote or assist any unlawful act such as (by way of example only) terrorist acts, copyright infringement or computer misuse.

Must not misrepresent their origins. Comments and/or user names may not be used to impersonate any other person or to misrepresent your identity.

Must not involve any flooding, spamming or advertising. Flooding is when the same comment is posted over and over after the same article or blog; spamming is the posting of the same comment (or very similar) to more than one article or blog. All advertisements, chain letters, pyramid schemes, junk mail and any other forms of commercial solicitation are prohibited.
