F-Secure Community - User Guidelines


F-Secure provides these discussion boards as a service to its users and customers to help them exchange ideas, tips, information, and techniques related to F-Secure products.  Like any community, they are most valuable when everyone follows certain basic guidelines and rules. These guidelines and rules are presented here so that you know what is expected of you and what you can expect from other participants when using the F-Secure Community.  By registering, you agree to follow these guidelines, in addition to the Community Terms of Use.


Using the forum




If you are new to the Community and want to know how to use the features and functions of our discussion platform, take a look at the Help section.




These boards are specifically provided to allow F-Secure Community Members to help each other. Please refrain from abusing any company or product.




Everyone wants to have a positive experience while on the boards - please make sure that you are not detracting from any other user's experience.  In particular, 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, but personal attacks and harassment ("flaming") in either the forums or through private messaging are not acceptable.


No spam


This community is not intended for the promotion of third party services, products, websites, or organizations. Please refrain from posting content that would constitute advertising, junk mail, spam, or any other form of unauthorized solicitation.




It is unacceptable to post any material that is unlawful, libelous, harmful, vulgar, obscene, derogatory, pornographic, abusive, harassing, threatening, hateful, and objectionable with respect to race, religion, creed, national origin or gender.

You can’t post any private or personal information or content that is not your own or that you do not have rights to transmit.


Content or links to content that contains contaminating or destructive features that may damage someone else's computer; duplicate or excessively repeated submissions in one or more areas; content designed to evade profanity or other filters; hyperlinks to sites that violate the Community Terms of Use or User Guidelines; content used to impersonate another person; content or behavior that violates any applicable laws; content or behavior that interferes with the operation of the site or with another member's ability to use the site is forbidden.

Evading site controls such as bans, or otherwise disregarding the directions of the site moderators or administrators is forbidden as well.




Most people are happy to help out on these boards, but 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 try it.  In addition, to protect your privacy, you should not post personal information on these boards including your home address, age, or phone number.  Furthermore, if any user asks you for personal information, such as an account number, address, password or credit card number, do not provide it.


F-Secure retains the right to move content and limit user's access.


F-Secure monitors the content posted by participants in its boards and retains the right, at its sole discretion, to limit user's access to the boards and to remove material that, in the sole judgment of F-Secure or a designated moderator, does not comply with the current User Guidelines or with the Community Terms of Use, or that is otherwise inappropriate for these boards, harmful, objectionable, or inaccurate. F-Secure also retains the right to assign such right to some users of the boards.  F-Secure is not responsible for any failure or delay in removing such material.  Moderators may take any action they deem necessary in their own judgment to support the User Guidelines and Community Terms of Use, and, in general, that can detract from the experience of other users or the purpose of the support community. Such actions may include editing or moving material and banning individual users.
