    Professional Conduct

    1. TRACTION asks everyone to maintain professional etiquette, and to avoid any unprofessional posts and exchanges. ‘Unprofessional’ is here defined as any form of disrespectful, dismissive, patronising, bullying, or harassing behaviour. In the unlikely scenario that participants exhibit openly disrespectful, disruptive, or harassing behaviour, TRACTION reserves the right to remove the comment and/or attendee(s) from the forum and, if necessary, revoke access to the website and any associated programmes now or in the future.
    2. Users must respect the privacy of individuals and not disclose, share or quote comments from the community forum or other interactions.
    3. Users of the site must restrict personal details.  Users should not share their own or other people’s personal details (personal emails, addresses, phone numbers) on the community forum or anywhere on the site (excluding registration purposes).
    4. In the interests and requirements of safeguarding and privacy, users must not share school, school staff, parental, or student information.
    5. Many topics being discussed in the Toolkit and on the forum concern historical injustices and tragedies on the subject of immigration, race, sexuality, and gender, and the policies and behaviours those theories have supported. Whilst TRACTION supports the efforts of scholars to engage fearlessly with the past without attempting to sanitise it, it is the responsibility of participants to understand and confront these issues in a respectful and thoughtful manner. Please bear in mind that community members and their students may find images, texts, and individual words relating to these subjects distressing. If you believe that anything in the sources or incidents you refer to may be a cause of such distress, then please indicate this at the start of your message. If your historical sources use offensive language – for example, racial slurs – it is best to avoid citing or using this language directly. In short, if your sources contain material/language that could be deemed offensive, please reconsider using it and warn participants.
