Membership Community Rules

By applying for membership to the Ontario Association of Genetic Counsellors (OAGC-ACGO), you agree to abide by the following community rules. The Association expects its members to observe the community rules on [web address] and any other applications operated by OAGC-ACGO, including but not limited to Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. Violations of these guidelines may result in the removal of material, comments or other content, or termination of a member’s use of and registration in OAGC-ACGO. Be truthful. Only one membership application should be completed and should reflect your identity and role. Impersonating another person is prohibited. Creating multiple accounts in the community is discouraged. If you change schools, institutions, or place of work, please update your existing Member account instead of creating a new account.

Be respectful. The Association encourages open and candid discussions and debates. However, all communications should be respectful. Differences of opinion are okay; personal attacks are not. Comments or content that are violent, threatening, abusive, sexually explicit, obscene, offensive, hateful, derogatory, defamatory, or are racially, ethnically, or otherwise objectionable content will be removed. Be professional. The OAGC-ACGO membership platform is not a place for unsolicited personal or commercial solicitation or advertising. Do not post/upload spam, inappropriate, offensive, or otherwise objectionable content to the community. Observe copyright and trademark law. The posting of copyrighted videos, photos, articles or other material beyond what is protected as fair use is prohibited.

The OAGC-ACGO team does monitor members and posts, but we may miss something. We encourage members to flag members and content which they feel violates any of the above community rules so we can review and take the appropriate action.
