Code of Conduct
The use of the messaging system on Adoptico.com (i.e. composing a message or replying to one) does not allow any kind of advertising as the main subject of a message (including the title and the content). Users are required to keep the conversation respectful, without any type of harassment and/or insulting/swearing or vulgar language – these are totally prohibited. Don't send anything that could be perceived as discriminatory, offensive or gross; such as racist, sexist, profane, vulgar, derogatory, hateful, or threatening content. Spamming and flooding are prohibited. Please also avoid double-sending the same message (sometimes it takes time to reply). Do not post messages that support or condone any illegal activities. Do not post messages that could be considered libelous or defamatory. For your own safety, think twice before providing any personal information such as your email address, surname, mailing address or phone number.
If you break this Code of Conduct, either intentionally or by accident, there is a high chance of being completely blocked from using the messaging system whether temporarily or permanently. Persistent or excessive misconduct will result in permanent suspension of your ability to access the messaging system, entirely, and may lead to a permanent deactivation of your account. And because these Rules cannot cover every case, we also reserve the right to suspend your access to the messaging system or to your account at any time, without prior notice, at our discretion.
Advanced users are a part of respectful pet organizations that share Adoptico’s mission to increase pet adoption, therefore, you are required to maintain the high reputation and be absolutely honest with users that send you messages, in your public profile (that every Advanced user gets) with the information you publish there, in your pets' profiles (i.e. pet's description and special needs), and in any other location on the website.
