The CORE Languages Community Guidelines

  • The CORE Languages Community Guidelines

    Posted by Stephen Sovenyhazy on March 4, 2024 at 3:41 pm

    We want people to use the CORE Languages community to connect with language learners from all over the world and help each other reach their language learning goals, but not at the expense of the safety and well-being of others or the integrity of our community. You, therefore, agree not to engage in the conduct described below (or to facilitate or support others in doing so):

    Violence and Threats

    Safety is CORE Languages’ top priority. We remove content when we perceive as a genuine risk of physical harm or a direct threat to public safety. You may not credibly threaten others, or organize acts of real-world violence. We do not allow promoting, planning, or celebrating any actions if they have, or could, result in financial harm to others, including theft and vandalism.

    Self-Harm

    CORE Languages takes threats of self-harm very seriously. We remove any promotion or encouragement of self-mutilation, eating disorders, or drug abuse. We also work with suicide prevention agencies around the world to provide assistance for people in distress.

    Harassment, Bullying, or Stalking:

    CORE Languages does not tolerate harassment, bullying, or stalking. We allow users to speak freely on matters and people of public interest, but take action on all reports of abusive behavior directed at private individuals. Repeatedly targeting other users with unwanted friend requests or messages is a form of harassment. If you feel you are being harassed, you can take action according to What should I do if I’m being harassed?.

    Hate Speech and Offensive Language

    Do not post any content, send any messages or otherwise take any actions on the CORE Languages Platform that attacks others based on what we call protected characteristics — race, ethnicity, national origin, religious affiliation, sexual orientation, caste, sex, gender, gender identity, and serious disease or disability.

    Sexually Obscene Content:

    CORE Languages has a strict policy against the sharing of pornographic content and any explicitly sexual content where a minor is involved. We also impose limitations on the display of nudity.

    Identity and Privacy

    We ask that you refrain from publishing the personal information of others regardless of their consent. Respect others’ wishes and preferences when choosing a communication method.

    Do not claim to be another person, or seek to mislead others as to your identity by copying another Member’s avatar, using a username that is misleadingly similar to another Member or otherwise posing as another Member. Do not create a false presence for an organization.

    We also ask that you refrain from publishing your personal information such as your phone number, email address, video chat, and instant message IDs, physical addresses, credit card numbers, passwords, and/or any other similar personally identifiable information on posts or any other publicly facing messages. It is our position to protect our users from unauthorized access to their accounts, online identity theft, and phishing scams. Private information should only be shared via private direct messaging.

    Intellectual Property

    Before sharing content on CORE Languages, please be sure you have the right to do so. We ask that you respect copyrights, trademarks, and other legal rights.

    Phishing and Spam

    We take the safety of our members seriously and work to prevent attempts to compromise their privacy or security. Do not send the same message to multiple Members or repeatedly post the same message in the post, exercise, question or other sections of the CORE Languages Platform.

    We also ask that you respect our members by not contacting them for commercial purposes without their consent. In addition, do not make posts or comments that are solely for commercial purposes since this detracts from, and does not add anything of value to the language-learning community.

    Reporting Violations

    We take any misconduct very seriously. If you believe that a violation of this CORE Languages Community Policy or other CORE Languages Policies has occurred, please report the violation to us by reporting the member or the content. (See How to report violations)

    Actions we may take in response to a violation of this Community Policy include but are not limited to:

    – Remove the violating content;

    – Lose some of the account’s privilege

    – Suspend the CORE Languages Account of the Member that committed the violation; and/or

    – Terminate the CORE Languages Account of the Member that committed the violation.
