Netiquette

First of all, our netiquette is a set of rules of good manners based on tolerance, respect and politeness. Our social media accounts are administered by Berger’s Communications Department and their use is part of a desire to interact and exchange with our audiences. It is also important to note that our team is not always able to moderate and interact on its various accounts in real time. Furthermore, Berger is not committed to systematically respond to questions and comments.

Berger reserves the right to refuse or delete comments that would include:

  • Defamatory, rude, violent, abusive, obscene, and discriminatory comments based on, among other things, race, gender, religion, nationality, sexual orientation or political allegiance;
  • Comments that incite hatred or violence or that constitute harassment or threats;
  • Comments that violate Quebec, Canadian or American laws and regulations;
  • Messages that are repeatedly published or that may be considered spam;
  • Propaganda;
  • Messages with advertising, promotional or commercial purpose;
  • Messages that are offensive, disrespectful or contemptuous towards a person or organization;
  • Messages that do not contribute to the smooth running of the discussion are incomprehensible or off-topic;
  • Links to inappropriate sites;
  • Content that includes personal information (such as a phone number or email address).

Some Berger employees are present on social media in a personal capacity. The comments, content and views they share in their personal capacity do not necessarily represent the official position of the organization. The fact that an Internet user subscribes to Berger’s social media pages does not mean that he or she is endorsed in any way.

If you violate our netiquette, we reserve the right to reject your content and block your account if necessary. Berger also reserves the right to modify, at any time and without notice, the terms and conditions of its netiquette and the content of its social media accounts.
