Community Guidelines, Terms of Use, and Privacy Policy

Community Guidelines

Last Modified: April 22, 2019

Highlights

  • On Ticco we share our relevant opinions, perspectives, and experiences openly.
  • Our community is a place where people of any age, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, race, disability, body size, religion, or any other aspect of their self or personality feel welcome.
  • In the community, Ticco members practice understanding and conduct themselves professionally in order to ensure all have a beneficial experience and are respected.

1. Introduction

These Community Guidelines outline what type of behavior is and is not acceptable on Ticco’s online platform and at Ticco events. They apply equally to founders and advisors, Ticco staff, Members, and any other individual.

2. Expectations for Conduct

  • Use Ticco to further your experience and that of others. Engage in Discussions, follow other members, share knowledge, and attend in-person gatherings when able for a meaningful experience.
  • Be respectful of others’ perspectives and experiences. Ticco’s community is made up of members from a range of professional backgrounds, who come from different places and have differing viewpoints. Our diversity is what makes our community valuable. We won’t all agree all the time, and that’s okay.
  • Keep comments productive. Whether responding to a prompt, answering a question, commenting on a post, or otherwise; comments should be productive in order to further conversation.
  • Stay on topic. Before you send, think: “Does this message need to be out in the world? Is my comment or response in keeping with the tone of this Discussion? Am I being considerate of others’ viewpoints?”
  • If you interpret another members’ behavior to be in violation of these Community Guidelines, take care of you and your peers by letting us know.

3. Unacceptable Behavior

Ticco is a professional networking platform. It is not intended to be used in the same way as some other social networks. As such, the following are inconsistent with the intent of Ticco and will be removed:

  • ‘Status’ posts. Other social networks exist which provide a ‘wall’ or timeline to share your personal status, including everyday and romantic activities. If a post is determined to be a status post, it may be removed at the discretion of Ticco.
  • Self-promotion. Other professional networks exist in which you can detail your current business ventures, press coverage of your work, announce speaking engagements, share links to your website, offer services, and more. Unless this information is furthering a conversation or is expressly permitted by Ticco, doing so within any communal or private/messaging portion of the Ticco platform is prohibited.
  • Personal insults or aggressive language geared towards member(s). This includes content posted in communal areas of the platform as well as direct messages.
  • Memes, jokes, language, and comments that mock or stereotype a single profession or group of professions, professionals, or other groups of people.
  • Political content that requests, directs, and/or encourages Ticco members to vote in a particular way or take action towards specific candidates, policies, and/or legislation in national, state, or local elections.
  • Sexual or explicit content, unless related to public art or the built environment and shared in a relevant manner.
  • Posts and conversations that encourage or incite violence. The planning or plotting of boycotts and/or aggressive acts - aside from a reasonable and nonviolent protest or gathering - towards any person, entity, agency, or location, is not allowed on Ticco.
  • Harassment. Bullying and/or harassment of any member, or the encouraging of a member to express these behaviors. If any member feels bullied, threatened, and/or harassed by attempts to recruit, romantic attempts, or through other actions based on their profession, gender, gender identity or expression, religion, race, or otherwise, Ticco may take action it deems appropriate as outlined under Enforcement within these Community Guidelines.
  • Personal information. The sharing of personal or confidential information, such as the sharing of a phone number, email address, or address other than your own in a communal portion of Ticco’s online platform.
  • Intellectual property infringement.  The posting of content that violates the intellectual property rights of others.  
  • Deceptive content. The impersonation of any other Member, Ticco, or other third party, a misrepresentation of your identity or affiliation, or other content that is likely to deceive any person.

3. Reporting

If you are the subject of, or witness to any violations of these Community Guidelines, please report a comment or message, and/or contact us by emailing community@go-ticco.co.

4. Enforcement

  • Ticco staff regularly moderate and review Ticco Discussions and other areas of our site. We may, at our sole discretion, remove any post which we determine is not keeping with these Community Guidelines.
  • In response to your expression of any Unacceptable Behavior(s) outlined in these Community Guidelines, we may contact you with a warning through Ticco’s online platform or through other contact methods provided to us by you as a first step, if we feel this minimal action is appropriate.
  • If we believe you have seriously violated any of these Community Guidelines, your Ticco account and/or your ability to use Ticco’s online platform or attend Ticco events may be suspended or revoked for a duration fit for the nature of the violation, at the sole and absolute discretion of Ticco.
  • Ticco may choose to reinstate access or privileges to you at any time if your access or privileges were revoked for any reason. Reinstatement of access or privileges may not be permanent, and if your actions are found to violate these Community Guidelines after reinstatement Ticco may take action to permanently revoke access and privileges.
  • If Ticco deems either a single action, or a combination of your actions to be egregious and worthy of expulsion from the Ticco community, Ticco may restrict or entirely prohibit your ability to use Ticco Services.

In addition, if you choose to provide consulting services to an individual or entity that you connected with through the Ticco Site, that relationship is not governed by this Privacy Policy: that relationship will be governed by a separate agreement entered into between you and Ticco and/or the benefitting entity, at that time.  

7. Information You Publish or Display

If you provide information to be published or displayed on areas of the Ticco Site accessible to other Ticco members, please be aware that such information may be shared by those members with non-members.

8. Security

We use reasonable efforts to protect your personal information, but no transmission of data over the Internet or any other public network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or information we transmit to you from the Ticco Site, and you assume all related risks.

We regularly review the information that we collect and store. We retain your personal information and a history of all account activity, including your online profile, until you request that we delete it. In certain cases, Ticco may be required to continue to retain your data to comply with applicable law or in connection with a legal claim.

9. Other Information

Lawful Bases. We collect and process your personal information only when we have a lawful basis to do so. Lawful bases include your consent, the fulfillment of Ticco’s contractual rights or obligations, complying with applicable law, and the legitimate interests of Ticco or third parties (provided that processing your data for a legitimate interest does not outweigh your rights and freedoms). Examples of a legitimate interest include (i) analyzing user data to maintain and improve the Ticco Site for all users;
(ii) providing you with access to the Ticco Site; (iii) providing you with up-to-date information about new features of the Ticco Site; (iv) engaging third-party providers to deliver certain features of the Ticco Site; and (v) complying with record retention laws or other legal obligations. You may withdraw your consent or object to a legitimate interest at any time by contacting us at the information provided below.

Cross-Border Transfer. The Ticco Site is hosted on servers in the United States. Any personal information you provide to us will be processed and stored on servers in the U.S., the laws of which may be deemed by other countries to have inadequate data protection. Accordingly, if you are located outside the U.S., you consent and continue to consent to the processing and storage of such data in the U.S.

Do Not Track: Some browsers incorporate a "Do Not Track" (DNT) feature that, when turned on, signals to websites and online services that you do not want to be tracked. At this time, the Ticco Site does not respond to DNT signals.

Children Under 16. We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of 16 and do not target the Ticco Site to children under 16. If you are under 16, please do not use the Ticco Site or submit any personal information through the Ticco Site. If you have reason to believe that a child under the age of 16 has provided their personal information to us, please contact us, and we will delete that information.
