THE TERMS

Keep it relevant

Please stay on topic. This forum is specifically provided to facilitate the exchange of knowledge, ideas and information around artificial intelligence in healthcare. Please refrain from abusing any company or product, selling outside services or products or, in general, from posting in a manner unrelated to the specified focus of the forum.

Keep it courteous

Everyone wants to have a positive experience online – please make sure that you are not detracting from any other user’s experience. In particular, please refrain from posting anything unlawful, libelous, defamatory, obscene, profane, pornographic, indecent, lewd, harassing, threatening, harmful, invasive of privacy or publicity rights, abusive, inflammatory or otherwise objectionable or injurious to third parties.

Your opinions are always welcome, but personal attacks and harassment (“flaming”) in either the forum or through messaging are not acceptable.

Keep it clear

Please communicate clearly so everyone may understand. Avoid using slang, specific terminology, or any other wording which might be difficult for all users to understand. In particular, we want to facilitate communication between clinicians and data scientists and know the importance of shared language across these disciplines.  We are a diverse community and seek to provide a comfortable environment where you can get help from other users like yourself.  This can only happen if we can understand each other.

Keep it spam-free – this means NO SELLING

This community is provided as a service to its global community, and is not intended for the promotion or reference source for promotion of outside services, products, websites, organisations or competitors. Posting content that would constitute advertising, marketing, sales pitches, junk mail, spam, chain letters, or any other form of unauthorised solicitation will not be allowed. Such content will be deleted without notice and your profile may be disabled or banned. Partners, we know our customers are sensitive to marketing so we ask that you refrain from promoting your outside events, webinars, services, products, books, and websites unless you are doing so from your own partner group. You can show off your knowledge and experience by answering customer questions and connecting with customers in that manner.

Be careful – your personal information

When registering for the forum, your full name (first and last) will be visible to other registered community members. If you do not want your name to be visible, please reset your default privacy settings for your Name to > Yourself. You should not post other personal information publicly on the community including your address, age, phone number, or Social Security Number.  Most people in the community are happy to help out, but remember that their advice is theirs only and that you are responsible for deciding whether or not to follow it. If the advice given by a user sounds wrong to you, do not try it.

SPECIAL ROLES

Community moderators and specialists

AIMed may designate certain community members as Community Moderators, or other valued member of the forum (e.g. subject matter expert). This designation does not create an employee or agency relationship between AIMed and this member, nor does it make this member a company spokesperson. Instead, the designation allows the community to know which members have been helpful, have provided constructive advice and have set a positive example and tone for the AIMed forum. Like any information posted on the forum, the opinions and advice provided by these members are their own. This content is the sole responsibility of the Community Moderator or other valued member, and anything stated in the Terms and Conditions applies to the content posted by these members.

AIMed employees

AIMed employees may participate in the AIMed forum, and must be identifiable by the red colourway on their profile. All AIMed employees are bound by the AIMed Employee Handbook and AIMed Code of Conduct, as well as AIMed’s Security policies when accessing, using, or participating in the forum. AIMed employees are encouraged to participate in this community, but are reminded that their activities here are governed by AIMed’s Social Media Policy.

Employees engaged in social media or networking related to AIMed in any manner or to any of its products or services must disclose their relationship to AIMed.

When in doubt as to whether information should be made public, do not reveal it here or elsewhere.
