About comments

Users can leave comments on specific sections of the platform as well as participate in forums or other public areas made available to users.

In any case, as the owner of this platform Shire reserves the ability to monitor the comments posted by users prior to publication and, if deemed appropriate edit or delete the comments.

In order for the platform to be a safe environment and protect its users, it is strictly forbidden to publish content:

  • That could be considered a breach in any form of the fundamental rights of personal and family privacy or image of others and, especially, of minors.
  • That includes photographs or images that collect personal data of third parties without obtaining appropriate consent of the owners.

  • Which contain advertising or commercial communications, to issue messages for advertising purposes or to capture data for the same purpose.
  • Involving the use of the spaces as channel ‘chat’. The comments posted on the platform must be related to Attention Deficit Disorder and Hyperactivity, and not as communication platform for a small group of people.
