The initiative developed
in cooperation with
Conseil de Presse

We have pleasure in offering you our services and, naturally, the possibility to comment on our contributions. When making your comments please:

  • make reference to the subject;
  • give reasons for your opinion;
  • express yourself intelligibly.

We also attach great importance to respect as a priority in the discussions. Therefore, please bear in mind that:


Behind every screen is a person ("Think before you post")

  • Be fair and objective and remember that communication on this website is public;
  • Please respect other users and their opinions;
  • Never write anything if you are in a terrible rage.

The Internet is not a legal vacuum

National and international laws and regulations also apply to social media. As a user of the commentary function, you also bear your own corresponding responsibility.

For this reason, various types of commentary are not permissible:

  • Illegal content such as racist, discriminatory, sexist, pornographic or violence-glorifying contributions, such as the invocation of hate or violence and insults;
  • Inappropriate content such as offensive or personal attacks;
  • Spam, lonely hearts advertisements, publicity, other commercial content or false information.

If these rules are broken, we reserve the right to:

  • warn the person responsible to refrain from making such comments;
  • delete, hide, edit or not to publish posts;
  • block the person responsible from our website;
  • or to take any other reasonable, also legal, measures.

We are happy to provide you as a user on request with information on the causes resulting in such measures. As a user of this website you agree to comply with these guidelines and user rules. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any queries or comments.

This Netiquette was developed by BEE SECURE in collaboration with the Press Council (status July 2017).
