Netiquette

Netiquette is a set of rules of conduct and decency that applies to exchanges between Internet users on online platforms. It is important to read it before speaking on our platforms.

The Ministère des Relations internationales et de la Francophonie and its representations abroad (the MRIF) encourages courteous and respectful dialogue on their social media accounts.

The MRIF reserves the right to hide or delete a comment if it:

  1. uses disrespectful, vulgar, rude, obscene or abusive language;
  2. is incorrect or out of context;
  3. is defamatory, discriminatory (on the basis of race, sex, religion, nationality, language or sexual orientation, among others) or disgraceful towards a member of the community, or incites hatred or violence;
  4. posts a wrong link (spam);
  5. is posted repeatedly or is intended to occupy the entire account.

Comments on the MRIF’s social media accounts are solely the responsibility of the authors and do not necessarily reflect the MRIF’s views. Similarly, the MRIF is not responsible for external links posted in the comments.

The information given through the MRIF’s social media accounts has no legal value and is not a substitute for official communications, laws or any regulations that take precedence.

By posting a comment on one of the MRIF’s social media accounts, users agree to respect this netiquette.
