Vantiv O.N.E. Community User Guidelines

Last revised March 2, 2017

 

We welcome your participation in the Vantiv O.N.E. Community, an online community that is working together to share ideas and propose solutions. We want all of our members and visitors to have the best possible experience; and your respectful and cooperative interactions will help us achieve that goal. Thank you for using your best judgment as you participate, for following our guidelines, and for reporting abuse and other inappropriate content if it is posted.

 

The Vantiv O.N.E. Community will be supervised by moderators that will review content, help our users get the information they need, and address issues that members bring to their attention. These moderators may delete or edit content that is inappropriate, misleading, or doesn’t follow our guidelines.

 

While common sense is typically the best guide, we have established the following guidelines to set general expectations:

 

What to Do:

  • Enjoy our community. Ask questions, share knowledge, and reach out to other people to exchange ideas respectfully.
  • Play nicely in the sandbox.
  • Only upload and post content that is appropriate and belongs to you. If you upload an avatar or profile image, only use images that you have created or have permission to use. Posting content that doesn’t belong to you puts you at risk of liability, and we will moderate your content or terminate your account to protect you and the community.
  • Be yourself.

What to Avoid:

  • Using online banking credentials to register. It’s important to use different passwords for online banking and social media sites. Please use a new password for this site.
  • Being inappropriate.
  • Being off-topic, boring, or making angry comments.
  • Providing commercial content or spam.
  • Making personal attacks.
  • Posting illegal content.
  • Using offensive language.
  • Using personally-identifiable, private, or confidential information.Our websites are for general use and are not intended for children under the age of 18. We do not knowingly collect information via our websites, applications, services, or tools from users under the age of 18. Comments in HTML format will not be accepted.
  • Our point system and user status is designed to reward users for making positive contributions to the community. Please don’t take actions solely for the purpose of amassing more points and improving your status, especially if those actions won’t enhance the community experience.


Vantiv reserves the right to change these guidelines at any time at its sole discretion. We will post those changes on our websites and update the effective date of the guidelines. We encourage you to check back periodically to stay up to date on our user guidelines.
