Offering a safe and supportive environment within Galvanize Tech Community (GTC) is our top priority. We aim to cultivate an environment for authentic interactions by keeping deceptive content and accounts off our platform.

Specific Policy

While we hope to build a community of learners through our platforms, we will be forced to remove violators of these guidelines from the Galvanize Tech Community as soon as we’re aware of it.

Harassment, bullying, and abusive behavior

Our community should feel safe to express themselves without fear of being shamed, humiliated, bullied, or harassed. We deeply understand the psychological distress that abusive content can have on individuals, and we do not tolerate abusive content or behavior on our platform. We review all expressions of abuse, including but not limited to violent threats, sexual harassment, disparaging statements regarding appearance, intellect, personality traits, and hygiene. Do not post:

Infringement of others’ privacy

Revealing or threatening to reveal personally identifiable information can cause emotional distress and lead to harm. We consider it a form of abuse and do not allow it in our community. Do not post:

Misleading information

We do not permit misinformation that could cause harm to our community or the larger public. While we encourage users to have respectful conversations about subjects that matter to them, we review and address all misinformation that could cause harm to an individual's health or wider public safety.
