Toy Industry Association Community Rules

Toy Industry Association (TIA) is committed to leading the growth and health of the toy industry. That commitment extends to social media channels owned or managed by TIA, including but not limited to its multiple web properties (e.g., toyassociation.org, toyindustryfoundation.org, toyinfo.org, playhappens.org, toyawards.org), blogs, microblogs, social networks, forums, and social news services.

TIA does not play favorites. We share information from member and non-member companies alike, and strive to be fair and balanced in our coverage of the industry.

To ensure open discussion and a welcoming environment for all participants, TIA reserves the right to delete, edit or otherwise alter content deemed inappropriate for any reason, without notification. If you find any discussion inappropriate for any reason, feel free to “Flag as Inappropriate” or email moderator@toyassociation.org directly to resolve the issue. The following guidelines outline TIA’s expectations for appropriate online behavior for all participants in TIA social media: 

  • Be courteous and respectful. Inflammatory, derogatory, or otherwise inappropriate comments about other participants will not be permitted. Respect one another’s privacy and intellectual property. 
  • Know and respect the law. No illegal activity will be permitted. Participation must be in compliance with all antitrust laws, as well as the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA). 
  • Stay on topic. Keep all discussions to professionally relevant topics.
  • Be informative. TIA reserves the right to delete any posting by a participant that is judged by moderators to be inappropriate, spam or overtly promotional outside the scope of posts described in the Disclaimers section that follows.

DISCLAIMERS

The opinions of people who post on TIA social media channels are their own, and not necessarily that of TIA or its affiliates. Links to external websites or reference to any commercial product, process, or service does not constitute or imply endorsement, recommendation, or favoring by TIA. TIA will not be held liable for any injury resulting from such statements.

At TIA, we will work every day to ensure that TIA social media remains a valuable resource for our members and stakeholders, and we greatly appreciate contributions from participants like you, who make the effort worthwhile. Thank you.
