Online Submission and Moderation Policy
Object of the “Ask an RD” and “comments and recipe ratings”
The purpose of the “Ask an RD” and “comments and recipe ratings”(hereafter: the “forums”) is namely to allow users to exchange with a dietitian on topics regarding nutrition and healthy life habits.
All communication transmitted in the context of the forums is public and non private. It is recommended that you transmit information on yourself that is only of a public nature and that you are willing to see circulate in any circumstance. We therefore recommend that you keep secret your personal information.
Furthermore, you acknowledge that you are personally responsible of the content of the materials/text that you communicate in the forums, as well as consequences that could ensue. Each user is therefore responsible to comply with the following rules in his communications:
All persons being entitled to their privacy, you must not in any circumstances, except with an authorization to do so, reveal or publish elements of intimacy of an identifiable person (i.e. love or sexual life, health condition, domicile, sexual orientation, physical intimacy, etc.).
All persons being entitled to the respect of their reputation, you must not in any circumstances, affirm or insinuate facts on a person in a careless or reckless manner without having first verified the truthfulness of the remarks. Or also, in the case of true facts, remind them without legitimate motive and for the only purpose to harm, bring ridicule on, humiliate, insult or offence a person.
It is prohibited to transmit any photograph of a person without his authorization.
d) Illegal Act:
It is prohibited to harass, discriminate or cause hateful propagation through forums. Moreover, are prohibited discussions that encourage illegal activities.
It is forbidden to use coarse or offensive language. Will not be tolerated any content that is defamatory, obscene, injurious, pornographic, obsessive, racist, aggressive, violent, abusive or otherwise illegal. No personal attack will be tolerated. It is possible to criticise arguments but not the persons who voiced them.
Considering the object of the “Ask an RD” and “comments and recipe ratings”, any material/text whose content contains information that is not based on Eating Well with Canada’s Food Guide, that does not promote a healthy diet and/or excludes one or more food groups, promotes a popular or miracle diet or products (pills, shakes, tonics, etc.), is not based on the Canadian Guidelines for Physical Activity, refers to unrealistic or too rapid weight loss (higher than 2 pounds per week), does not take into consideration personal and physiological needs (e.g. non personalised) of a person, deals with health problems that are too personal (ex. I have diabetes and my doctor has recommended…) could be partly or totally not published.
No one is authorized to use these forums to solicit, promote and/or offer for sale any products/services for commercial purposes or in any other way than for the goals these forums of discussion are aiming at. Therefore, it is prohibited to use or refer to specific trademarks, and such, for commercial purposes.
Rules of Moderation and Online Submission
In all cases, Alberta Milk reserve their right, at their sole discretion, to partly or totally publish, to refuse to partly or totally publish or to remove any material/text transmitted by a user that they may judge inappropriate for whatever reason and reserve their right to suspend any person that does not comply with the rules issued.
At all times, Alberta Milk reserves their right to act and intervene in the forums to keep them appropriate. However, it is impossible to foresee and control each communication made in the forums and therefore, Alberta Milk cannot guarantee the immediate withdrawal of any inappropriate material/text.
Alberta Milk waive any responsibility regarding any violation of rights of third parties in all material/text that you will have so transmitted and to such purpose, you undertake to discharge Alberta Milk of any damage including, without being limited to, all reasonable legal costs incurred by Alberta Milk relating to any proceedings, action or claim arising from the material/text submitted in the context of the forums.
Limitation of Responsibility
Alberta Milk, its subsidiaries, affiliated companies, holdings, their shareholders, officers and representatives, senior manager, directors, employees, agents and other representatives (hereinafter and above collectively referred to as: “Alberta Milk”) are not liable for any opinion, recommendation and/or advices given by other users through the forums. Alberta Milk are not in a position to validate the content of the material/text submitted other than by the intervention of experts in “Ask an RD” the later acting in an independent way. Consequently, in no circumstance Alberta Milk can be held responsible of the legality, accuracy or conformity of any material/text submitted by users. To such purpose, the user undertakes to defend and release Alberta Milk of any liability for damages including, without being limited to, all reasonable legal cost incurred by Alberta Milk that are related to any proceeding, action or claim arising from the non compliance of the Policy and/or any material/text submitted in the context of the forums.
