Community Guidelines

Triptop is a community where travelers learn and share local tips, advice, updates and reviews about every travel spot in the world. Our goal is to build a strong and respectful community. It is therefore critical that we hold ourselves to a high standard of morality and mutual respect. The strength of any community lies in the integrity of its members, and we can ensure Triptop’s success by following some key guidelines for how we engage in conversations and share content across the website. As an active member of Triptop, you should:

Be authentic — In order for Triptop to function properly and make sense, its members must be real people. Moreover, the information you provide about yourself—your name, your description and location—should be honest and accurate.

Be appropriate — Triptop members should always conduct themselves in a manner that is suitable for the social and professional circumstances in which they are engaged. One of Triptop’s priorities is to cultivate discussions, but we do not tolerate behavior that aims to attack, intimidate or otherwise dismay people. Graphic obscenities and pornography are not allowed on the Triptop platform.

Be respectful — Triptop members are expected to be well-mannered in behavior and dialogue. Harassment and abuse toward other people or organizations, in any form, will not be tolerated. Unsolicited communication—such as junk mail, spam, phishing, investment schemes, job scams, etc.—is not allowed. Triptop does not condone threats of violence, nor does it condone hate-speech acts such as attacking others for their races, ethnicities, genders, sexual orientations, political or religious affiliations, or medical or physical conditions. Members should not use Triptop to intentionally infect others with malicious computer software.

Be lawful — Members are not allowed to use the Triptop platform to engage in illegal activities, to violate other people’s rights or to commit fraud. Be respectful of copyrighted works, trademarks, private information and trade secrets by ensuring that you have the legal right to use any such materials.
