D2L Brightspace Community Rules

January 2017

We hope that the time you spend in the Brightspace Community site is valuable and enjoyable. When we refer to the “Community”, we mean the site, services and all content, including user content. To ensure that everyone has the best experience possible, we have established these Rules. Please take the time to read them. By registering for a Community account, by using or visiting the Community, you are subject to these Rules, including the mandatory arbitration and class action waiver provision, and to all applicable laws. If you do not agree to all of these Rules, you should not access, visit or participate in the Community. We reserve the right to refuse or terminate access to the Community to anyone, at any time, without notice, and for any reason.

Follow the Golden Rule.
It's simple: treat others the way you would like to be treated. Anything you post - whether it be a comment, private message or discussion post - should use appropriate language and be respectful of Community members and the public. You must not engage in any "Offensive Conduct", by which we mean doing things such as flaming, trolling, infringing, using offensive language, spamming, hacking, posting anything defamatory or obscene, posting bots or anything that may cause harm (e.g., malware), or other problematic activities.

Be Honest.

When submitting information to us, you cannot misrepresent your identity or impersonate any person, nor may you use the account, username, or password of another user at any time. By providing your personal information to D2L, you consent to the collection, processing and storage by D2L of your personal information in accordance with the terms of our Privacy Statement.

Permitted Uses.
You can only use Community for your own lawful, non-commercial, personal purposes. We are providing the Community for the benefit of our customers, partners, developers and users only. Please tell us if you believe that someone is using Community under false pretenses or in a manner that is contrary to D2L's or the Community's best interests.

Help Us Help You.
If you're looking for help, have a question or just want to connect with a member of the Community - don't hesitate to reach out. Your Community Management team will ensure you receive a response.

Sharing is Caring.
Within the Community there are users with years of experience and those who are just getting started. Take some time to offer your expertise to Community members who are looking for support or resources. What goes around comes around.

Take the Lead.
Do you want to get more involved? We're always happy to connect with members who want to contribute more to the Community. Send the Community Management team a message so we can explore ways to support your development as a Community leader.
