Code of Conduct

The Code of Conduct aims to influence young people, youth workers and organizations, as it will map out the expected digital values, attitudes, skills and competences to be adopted by young people, as members of the DICIPASS society.

About it

Code of Conduct It is a set of rules pertaining to the use of participatory media. A digital code of conduct forms the basis for user and content moderation. It’s also a valuable tool for educating users about computer-mediated communications, in addition to helping keep the platform environment safe and respectful.

What does Code of Conduct include?

Set out in accessible language, the DICIPASS Code of Conduct  lists (as exhaustively as possible) rights and responsibilities, expectations and the consequences in the event of an infringement. The code specifies the consequences if the rules are broken — for example, the removal of content or the suspension/closure of a user’s account.

Where to use the DICIPASS Code of Conduct?

There is no single recommendation for how or where a digital code of conduct should be displayed. Its importance will vary greatly depending on the type of platform and degree to which the platform is participatory. For example, in a social network where users have frequent opportunities to interact, the digital code of conduct may take the form of a contract that users must agree to before they can participate.
