Shop LC Community Guideline- Standards for Participation
- Only one SHOP LC Community account per person is permitted. Do not impersonate any person or entity, misrepresent your affiliation with a third party, or violate these guidelines in choosing a username.
- This is a public platform. Do not post personal information or any other information that you do not wish to have made public.
- Be respectful and courteous to others, even if you disagree with them. Do not use language or post content that is unkind or in poor taste or engage in personal attacks.
- If you include other people in your images or videos, make sure you have their permission to do so, including parental consent of minors.
- Keep your postings relevant to the topic. This makes it easier for others to follow the conversation.
- All postings must be in English.
