Below you’ll find information on what the Amplitude Community is for and what policies you should be aware of. The following terms and conditions ensure a safe and open space for all users, members, and contributors in the Amplitude Community.

3. Amplitude Moderators are Here to Help. If you are new to the Amplitude Community and are unsure about anything, the moderators and other participants are always happy to help. The Amplitude Community is monitored by "Moderators" who are identified by the role displayed next to their usernames. Please be respectful and follow the direction given by any of them. Moderators are happy to help with forum issues or feedback about Amplitude products and services. Moderators are Amplitude employees.
4. Keep it Relevant. For everyone's benefit please stay on topic. The Amplitude Community is provided to encourage knowledge-sharing of Amplitude products and services with others, thought leadership and other best practices. Please refrain from discussing personal matters or, in general, from posting content in a manner unrelated to the resolution of issues regarding Amplitude products and services. Other inappropriate or unacceptable behavior includes: a) discussing how to violate any policy or agreement entered into with Amplitude for any product or service, b) posting content which is created solely to "bump" an existing topic or to evade the word filter or site logic; c) double-posting or cross-posting; and d) discussing participant bans or other Moderator actions. The Amplitude Community is not a venue for discussion of legal matters. Therefore, no such discussions are permitted. We reserve the right to delete inappropriate material.
5. Be Courteous. Do your part to ensure everyone has a positive experience when participating in the Amplitude Community. Always be mindful of your posts and activity when participating. Specifically, please refrain from posting anything unlawful, libelous, defamatory, obscene, 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. However, neither personal attacks nor harassment are acceptable and will not be tolerated. This includes "flaming" others via posts, replies or through private messages. Any use of the Amplitude Community that in Amplitude’s sole opinion does not conform with these Guidelines is unacceptable and subject to removal. In addition, Amplitude reserves the right to terminate your member account under such circumstances.
6. No Spam. The Amplitude Community is provided as a convenience to Amplitude customers and users and is not to be used for the promotion of third party services, products, websites, or organizations. Please refrain from posting content that would constitute advertising, junk mail, spam, chain letters, or any other form of unauthorized solicitation.
8. Be Careful. Most people are happy to assist others within the Amplitude Community. Please 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 follow it. Use common sense when providing or receiving assistance from other Amplitude Community participants. Never post personally identifiable information on the Amplitude Community. This includes your personal information as well as anyone else’s personal information. Personally identifiable information includes but is not limited to - physical and/or email address, age, phone number or credit card information. Furthermore, if any user asks you for personal information e.g. an account number, address, password or credit card number, do not provide it. Lastly, use common sense. Evaluate for yourself whether the advice provided or the request made makes sense to you.
10. The Right to Move, Edit, or Delete Posts. While Amplitude has no obligation to monitor the Amplitude Community, Amplitude may, in its sole discretion, monitor the Amplitude Community and the materials you transmit or post. Should you violate or allow another person to use your account to violate any of the following rules, Amplitude reserves the right to move, edit, or delete your content, post or discussion thread:
Posts that are defamatory, libelous, unnecessarily antagonistic, or an invasion of privacy or violation of the rights of another user, person, or party.
Posts that are obscene, abusive, harassing, threatening, off-topic, unintelligible, or inappropriate, as determined by the moderators of the Amplitude Community
Posts that are in violation of copyright, trademark, or intellectual property laws, as determined by the moderators of the Amplitude Community. Simply because material is available on the Internet does not mean it is in the public domain; most materials are protected by law. In addition, simply including attribution does not permit users to post copyrighted materials on the forum; only extremely short excerpts or hyperlinks are generally permitted.
Posts in violation of local, state, United States or international law.
Posts promoting, soliciting for, advertising for, referring to, or hyperlinking to commercial products, programs, or services; including contests, chain letters, pyramid schemes, or commercial enterprises. The Amplitude Community is designed for discussion and knowledge sharing.
Posts which are submitted repetitively, without any bearing on the discussion topic, or otherwise deliberately disrupting the Amplitude Community ("spamming").
Posts which attempt to impersonate or fraudulently represent another user, person, or party.
Posts which are in a language other than English.
Posts which include viruses, "Trojan Horses," or any other contaminating or destructive feature that may damage another person's computer.
Posts which are determined, solely under authority of Amplitude and third parties employed or directed by it, to be otherwise objectionable.
The Amplitude Community is a privately-held, privately-maintained forum. Amplitude has the right, but not the obligation, to remove any material from the Amplitude Community which we, at our sole discretion, feel is not appropriate.
11. Anti-Harassment Policy The Amplitude Community is dedicated to providing a harassment-free experience for everyone, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, age, race, or religion. We do not tolerate harassment of participants in any form.
This code of conduct applies to all Amplitude Community spaces, including but not limited to mailing lists, messages, and conferences, both online and off. Anyone who violates this code of conduct may be sanctioned or expelled from these spaces at the discretion of the team.
Some Amplitude Community spaces may have additional rules in place, which will be made clearly available to participants. Participants are responsible for knowing and abiding by these rules.
This code of conduct applies to Amplitude Community spaces, but if you are being harassed by a member of the Amplitude Community outside our spaces, we still want to know about it. We will take all good-faith reports of harassment by Amplitude Community members seriously. This includes harassment outside our spaces and harassment that took place at any point in time. The abuse team reserves the right to exclude people from the Amplitude Community based on their past behavior, including behavior outside the Amplitude Community spaces and behavior towards people who are not in the Amplitude Community.
12. Reporting. If you believe you’re experiencing unacceptable behavior that will not be tolerated as outlined above or if you believe you’ve been unfairly accused of violating the Guidelines, please use support.amplitude.com to report. Reports are triaged by the Moderators. If the person who is harassing you is on the team, they will recuse themselves from handling your incident. We will respond as promptly as we can. After receiving a concise description of your situation, they will review and determine the next steps.
We will respect confidentiality requests for the purpose of protecting victims of abuse. At our discretion, we may publicly name a person about whom we’ve received harassment complaints, or privately warn third parties about them, if we believe that doing so will increase the safety of Amplitude Community members or the general public. We will not name harassment victims without their affirmative consent.
In addition to conducting any investigation, they can provide a range of resources, from a private consultation to other community resources. They will involve other colleagues or outside specialists (such as legal counsel), as needed to appropriately address each situation.
Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately.
If a participant engages in harassing behavior, the team may take any action they deem appropriate, up to and including expulsion from all Amplitude Community spaces and identification of the participant as a harasser to other Amplitude Community members or the general public.
13. Copyright, Trademark, the DMCA, and Takedowns. Amplitude respects the intellectual property of others and requires that users participate in the Amplitude Community.
