  • racist, inciting, violence-glorifying or insulting comments as well as pornographic content or content harmful to minors;
  • violations of rights such as defamation as well as statements damaging to reputation and business;
  • calls for violence against persons, institutions or companies as well as threats of any form;

  • the distribution of copyrighted content that has not been approved for distribution.

All users are responsible for the content they distribute. HPI assumes no liability for such content. We reserve the right to delete individual contributions that violate our guidelines and to report them to the platform operators in the event of serious or repeated violations. We also reserve the right to make changes and additions to this netiquette. The terms of use of the platforms also apply.
