Netiquette

Techno Culture Club’s website and social network pages are spaces of exchange and information for the community gathered around the mission and activities of the organization. The present netiquette seeks to ensure respectful and constructive exchanges.

If you witness or experience an event that goes against this netiquette, do not hesitate to contact us via the direct messages of the social network concerned or via our contact page to report it. We will respond to the best of our ability.

Diversity and Inclusion

In all of its activities, the Techno Culture Club team wishes to establish an inclusive environment that celebrates the diversity of its community.

As such, it is fundamental that the relationship between members of the community be one of respect, dignity, and fairness regardless of national or ethnic origin, color, religion, age, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, marital status, family or social status, genetic characteristics, physical or mental disability.

No malicious and/or intolerant messages, comments or interactions will be accepted. Recognizing that written language is a privilege, we will not tolerate judgment or condescension in response to another member of the community.

We invite everyone who interacts on our platforms to review our organizational inclusive writing policy.

On Social Media

We reserve the right to remove any post or comment that is:

  • defamatory, abusive or obscene ;
  • racist, sexist, homophobic, transphobic, ableist, classist, colonialist, ageist, sexual or religiously intolerant (anti-Semitic, Islamophobic, etc.);
  • violating the right to privacy;
  • containing personal attacks or aggressive comments against other users, partners or organizations;
  • violating intellectual property rights;
  • containing illegal, fraudulent or misleading information;
  • advertising or promoting material unrelated to the organization’s activities or values;
  • off-topic or spam.

We also ask that you avoid abusive use of capital letters (equivalent to shouting).

We also reserve the right to ban from the page any user who does not respect this netiquette.

TCC reserves the right to change this netiquette.

In Online Workshops

During an online workshop, Techno Culture Club reserves the right to :

  • turn off the cameras and microphones if participants :
    • act contrary to the code of conduct
    • share confidential information (passwords, access codes, etc.) that could jeopardize their security or that of other participants, etc.
  • exclude a member who shows signs of aggression or makes disrespectful comments that go against the values expressed above.

In Online Youth Workshops

In order for an activity to run smoothly for everyone:

  • I respect others
  • I respond if the facilitator speaks to me (with your microphone, a gesture to the camera, a thumbs up)
    At the beginning of the workshop, we will ask everyone around the table to turn on their camera or at least their microphone to introduce themselves; they can be turned off later. If you can’t turn on your camera or microphone for some reason, use the chat room to tell us about the situation.

If a person does not respond in any way and we have never been able to be sure that they are a youth:

  1. We will give the email of a facilitator to contact us and fix the technical problem;
  2. We will send the phone number to reach the Zoom conference in this way;
  3. If there is no response, we reserve the right to expel the person. If they join repeatedly and the situation remains the same, we will stop admitting them. In this case, we will inform the library or the organizing organization.
