Dear visitors to our social media pages,
SOS Humanity e.V. stands for professional search and rescue at sea and humanitarian work. Thank you for your interest in our work and your commitment.
Our channels are intended to provide a platform for humanitarian issues as well as reflect the values of SOS Humanity e.V. Our profiles on social media are meant to give you the opportunity to get in touch with our organisation and as users with each other. Be active, share, ask questions, and give feedback.
We welcome and are open to different opinions – as long as they are shared respectfully. We want the kind of interaction we expect on a personal level outside the internet. In this way, we try to enable our community to have an exchange that is enjoyable and not burdensome. We, therefore, ask all users to help us achieve this goal and not to post content that:
- is threatening, abusive, defamatory, obscene, indecent, or objectionable
- is racist, fascist, anti-semitic, sexist, xenophobic, homophobic, misogynistic, queerphobic, or transphobic
- demean the rights of another person
- infringe the intellectual property rights of another person
- contain advertising for third parties
- violate any law or regulation, or contain other inappropriate or derogatory content.
We will delete comments that meet these criteria. Hate comments, threats of violence, political extremism, personal insults, and unobjective generalisations have no place on our pages. Users who repeatedly violate our netiquette will be excluded from the discussion.
The editors reserve the right to post links – please refrain from posting links in comments, we will usually delete them.
Civil courage: Please don’t look away! Although fortunately still a minority, comments filled with hate and racism are unfortunately often particularly loud on social media and seem to be in the majority. We would love you to join us in this discussion. Together, we can show that we are the majoraty and have better arguments.
We reserve the right to complete this netiquette.
Have fun commenting,
Your team from SOS Humanity e.V.
