Community guidelines

We've adopted these guidelines so that everyone has a chance to get the most they can out of Demotix. And we've tried to keep it simple.

Rule No. 1: Respect.

  • Please do not attack someone for merely having an opinion that differs from your own; strive to express your disagreements thoughtfully and constructively.

Rule No. 2: Respect.

  • Comments must not contain any material that is abusive, vulgar, obscene, hateful, fraudulent, unlawful, threatening, harassing or defamatory toward any person, whether a Demotix user, a photograph subject or otherwise.
  • Hateful and abusive comments may include derogatory remarks regarding an individual’s sex, race, religion or belief, ethnic or national origin, sexual orientation, age, marital status, disability or working status.

Rule No. 3: See above.

  • We reserve the right to remove comments and posts on the Demotix website, as well as on our social media accounts, that violate this policy, on a temporary or permanent basis.
