10. Terms of use and rules that users undertake to abide by

Code of Honor

The user who registers on the platform is morally committed that he will maintain only one account and that he will not allow anyone else to use his name or password.

The users of the platform are encouraged to learn from each other through the forum, exchanging opinions and ideas on the issues and problems that are posed to them in a climate of learning solidarity and collective effort.

Code of conduct for the forum

The proper functioning of the forum also requires a commitment to follow the self-evident rules of respect for the personality of the users and those responsible for the educational unit. In particular, the publication of content that:

  • defames and insults the personality of others
  • infringes the intellectual property rights of third parties
  • advertises or promotes commercial products
  • constitutes party propaganda
  • are consciously inaccurate in order to deceive others
  • contains all kinds of viruses, corrupt files, malware, or anything else that could damage the computer or other files.

In case any of the users is found to be violating the above rules, then they will first receive a first warning for correction and in case this does not happen, the post in question will be removed. In the second phase, the user will be excluded from new posts in the forum and as a last resort will be permanently deleted from the platform, with whatever consequence this entails (loss of certificates of successful monitoring, etc.). The platform administrator reserves the right to take any other action to protect both the users and the posted material.

It is understood, finally, that the name stated by each user is accurate and of course the use of a nickname in the forum is acceptable in order to preserve his anonymity vis-.-Vis third parties.

Forum posts and copyright

The user should also be aware that if his posts on the forum infringe the copyrights of others, the responsibility lies solely with him. In particular, it is his sole responsibility to know if the content of any of his posts is the copyright of a third party under copyright law, so he alone – and not the educational platform – is responsible for its illegal publication.

By posting its posts on the forum, the user also accepts the possibility of their uncontrolled reproduction and distribution by all other users and that the platform has no responsibility – or may be responsible – for this. The publication of his posts, therefore, constitutes a complete assignment of his possible copyrights on them.
