general terms of use

As part of its mission, Synapse C recognizes the relevance of using different digital platforms such as, in particular, social networks, blogs, and e-mail, but as long as this is done in healthy way and carried out in a manner that is respectul of others and any applicable laws.

Synapse netiquette involves the rules of conduct for the behaviour of Internet users on digital platforms. This applies to all people who access our various platforms on the web.

Therefore, the following rules apply on the Synapse C website, blog, and social media pages, including:

  • Respect for the privacy and protection of personal information:  


If you want to share photos and/or videos, make sure you have the consent of the people featured in them, as well as the author’s permission.  

Synapse C pays particular attention when it comes to the sharing of personal information. Make sure you do not share information about yourself, and be careful not to reveal sensitive material. Comments that disseminate personal or confidential information, such as personal contact details or addresses, will be deleted.  

Synapse C is committed to respecting the confidentiality of information that it processes and receives. We cannot disclose any of this information through our platforms or other means. If you notice anything to the contrary, or any disclosure of information that does not respect these rules, you can inform us of your dissatisfaction at the following e-mail:  


  • Respect for the rules:  


Synapse C reserves the right to remove any comments if they are:  

  • Doubtful, deemed defamatory, hateful, racist, xenophobic, homophobic, or offensive 
  • In bad faith or irrelevant 
  • Vulgar, insulting, or shocking. These are hurtful to other internet users. 
  • Political or religious 
  • Written in all caps. This is considered shouting and can be interpreted as aggressive.  
  • Harmful to healthy debate.  


Where applicable, Synapse C reserves the right to ban a user if it is found that, in serveral instances, their actions are inappropriate.  


  •  Interaction with other internet users 


The sharing of links and other web pages is permitted, provided they are relevant to the topic being discussed. However, Synapse C is not responsible for the content of external media.  

Make sure to share peer-reviewed and verified content so as not to contribute to the spread of unfounded rumors.  

All comments are read and considered. If the same comment appears several times, it may be deleted.  

A social media presence by the communications team is provided Monday through Friday between 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. We are committed to ensuring that our digital platforms remain safe and respectful: an inappropriate comment may, therefore, appear online for a few moments while it is being evaluated. 


Synapse C reserves the right to modify this netiquette without notice.
