14. Conduct and Guidelines for Vendors. We recognize that the data community is as much about the folks who use tools as it is about the folks who build data tooling. However, to protect the integrity of our community and the discussion within it, we have a strict non-solicitation policy in place for all participants in the Amplitude Community, including representatives of vendors offering non-Amplitude products and services.. Members of the Amplitude Community may not use any Amplitude Community platform or resource as a lead-generating channel. The following behavior is in violation of the Agreement and Accounts that engage in this behavior will be removed from the Amplitude Community:
Reaching out to Amplitude Community members to sell a product or service (via DM, email, or in an open channel).
Outbounding Amplitude Community members for a role at a non-Amplitude company.
Asking Amplitude Community members to consider investing in any opportunities.
Otherwise contacting Amplitude Community members with the goal of financial benefit.
Non-Amplitude vendors are prohibited from sourcing Amplitude Community member names from our platforms and reaching out via third-party platforms or other means.
We require that all vendor representatives note their affiliation in their Slack profile (e.g. [title] @ [company] in their Slack bio).
We recognize that vendor representatives often have unique expertise to contribute to discussions in the Amplitude Community. As such, please wait for at least one business day before responding to any questions directly related to your product or service or until an unaffiliated Amplitude Community member has responded (whichever comes first). Any violation of this guideline will result in your content being removed.
If you think the community would be better served by having a dedicated channel for your tool type, please reach out to email@example.com to request a dedicated channel.
15. Changes to these Guidelines. Amplitude may periodically modify and supplement these Guidelines. You are responsible for regularly checking the Guidelines for revisions. All amended terms become effective upon our posting, and any use of the Amplitude Community after such revisions have been posted signifies your consent and agreement to the modified Guidelines.
