Our content policies play an important role in maintaining a positive experience for you, the users. Please respect these guidelines. From time to time, we may change our content policies so please check back here. Also, please note that when applying the policies below, we may make exceptions based on artistic, educational, documentary or scientific considerations or where there are other substantial benefits to the public from not taking action on the content.
We do not allow adult content on the Bridlington Community Blogs.
We want you to use the Bridlington Community Blog to express your opinions but don't cross the line by publishing hate speech. By this, we mean content that promotes hate or violence towards groups based on race, ethnicity, religion, disability, gender, age, veteran status or sexual orientation/gender identity. For example, don't write a blog saying that members of Race X are criminals or advocating violence against followers of Religion Y.
Don't post content just to be shocking or graphic.
The Bridlington Community is for all, therefore we ask you to respect others by not using profanity within your blogs.
Don't threaten other people on your blog. For example, don't post death threats against another person or group of people and don't post content encouraging your readers to take violent action against another person or group of people.
It is our policy to respond to clear notices of alleged copyright infringement.
It's not ok to publish another person's personal and confidential information. For example, don't post someone else's credit card numbers, Social Security numbers, unlisted phone numbers and driver's licence numbers. Also, please bear in mind that in most cases, information that is already available elsewhere on the Internet or in public records is not considered to be private or confidential under our policies.
Please don't mislead or confuse readers by pretending to be someone else or pretending to represent an organisation when you don't. We're not saying that you can't publish parody or satire - just avoid content that is likely to mislead readers about your true identity.
Don't use The Bridlington Community section to engage in illegal activities or to promote dangerous and illegal activities. For example, don't author a blog encouraging people to drink and drive. Otherwise, we may delete your content. Also, in serious cases such as those involving the abuse of children, we may report you to the appropriate authorities.
Do not create blogs that transmit viruses, cause pop-ups, attempt to install software without the reader's consent or otherwise impact readers with malicious code. This is strictly forbidden on the Bridlington Community Blog.
