Colinkz Code of Conduct
Now that you know what we’re about, we want to ensure that all of our Colinkz members have a peaceful and gratifying experience.
Here are some guidelines in using our platform.
Lets keep it simple. We ask that you follow the "Golden Rule:"
Treat others as you would like others to treat you.
Remember your vibe will attract your tribe, so:
- Create Events of All Kinds. Whether you're interested in dining out, networking, festivals, special celebrations, or just mingling you're free to create
events that bring your community together.
- Share Respectful, Celebratory Content. We highly encourage the use of content that celebrates different cultures, countries, and voices. Express yourself
and inspire our community with your unique perspective and insight.
- Post Self-Generated or Properly Obtained Content. You are welcome to use content in your event listing that you've created yourself, or procured appropriately,
provided that it is not hateful or explicit in nature, or otherwise in violation of these Guidelines. This includes photos, videos, logos, and copy. Please
comply with all applicable laws, including, without limitation, privacy and anti-spam laws, intellectual property laws and so on.
