For the fdesign platform, we have created Community Rules that you must agree to before being allowed to sign up to the platform. These are the Community Rules:

The fdesign platform gives visitors the chance to view and test new applications before they're officially released. So you can only use the fdesign platform to post comments, ratings and material that are appropriate.

You should:

  • be polite, respectful and civil to others, even if your views differ;
  • be accurate when stating facts;
  • only state opinions which are genuinely held;
  • comply with the law of England and Wales and any country from which you are posting your contribution;
  • be relevant;
  • be original and not copy or plagiarise other people’s work; and
  • write in English.

You should not:

  • defame any person anywhere in the world;
  • promote discrimination based on race, sex, religion, nationality, disability, sexual orientation or age;
  • publish, post, distribute or disseminate any material which is obscene, offensive, hateful, inflammatory, indecent, unlawful or otherwise objectionable;
  • publish content which is spam or contains chain letters, pyramid schemes, surveys, contests or junk mail;
  • publish content that could be judged to be equivalent to advertising (including, but not limited to advertising or offering to sell any goods or services) or promotional material, that violates third party rights, or in any way use the fdesign platform to promote your own business or the business of anyone else;
  • publish any content or make any endorsements relating to the financial services industry either in general or about specific providers, their products, services or staff;
  • post content in any language other than English;
  • contribute content with the intention of committing or promoting an illegal act;
  • disclose any of your personal data or other information you do not want to be widely available;
  • disclose your bank details or other financial or confidential information;
  • post any content that reveals any personal information about yourself or any other living individual (for example name, e-mail address, telephone number or postal address). Where another person is identifiable in your contribution, you confirm that you have their consent (or that of their parent/guardian if under 18) to the submission of such content;
  • infringe any copyright, database right, trade mark or other intellectual property right of any other person;
  • breach any legal duty owed to a third party, such as a contractual duty or a duty of confidence;
  • be in contempt of court;
  • publish anything which is likely to harass, upset, embarrass, alarm or annoy any other person;
  • impersonate any person, or misrepresent your identity or affiliation with any person;
  • give the impression that a contribution emanates from any person other than you if this is not the case;
  • advocate, promote, incite any third party to commit, or assist any unlawful or criminal act;
  • post content which contains a statement which you know or believe, or have reasonable grounds for believing, that members of the public to whom the statement is, or is to be, published are likely to understand as a direct or indirect encouragement or other inducement to the commission, preparation or instigation of acts of terrorism;
  • post content which contains a hypertext link to another web site;
  • post or otherwise make available any material that contains, or directs other users to, software viruses, malware, or other code or files that may damage or interfere with computer hardware or software; or
  • rate any application in the fdesign platform more than once (unless we’ve changed it, and asked you to rate the new version).
