An initiative developed
in cooperation with
Conseil de Presse

We are pleased to offer you our services, as well as the opportunity to comment on our contributions. When commenting, please:

  • make reference to the subject;
  • give reasons for your opinion;
  • express yourself in a clear way.

We also attach great importance to the fact that respect is at the centre of 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.

On request, we are happy to inform you as a user on the causes that led to one of these 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).
