It’s important to us that TPT is and always remains a safe, supportive, collaborative community for educators to share and discover new and better ways to teach. Below is the code of conduct for using TPT whether you’re buying, selling, downloading free resources, browsing, or using other TPT services.
We already know you’re amazing. Be a great community member and the best TPT’er you can be.
Be kind. Don’t use TPT in any way to harm, threaten, stalk, intimidate, or harass anyone.
Be respectful. Don’t use TPT to post content or anything else that contains material that is obscene, libelous, racially or ethnically disparaging, sexually explicit, derogatory, culturally insensitive, or otherwise offensive or objectionable. It is in our discretion to determine what is offensive or objectionable.
Be truthful. Don’t provide information or post content that is false, deceitful, misleading, or inaccurate. Don’t impersonate or attempt to impersonate someone else on our services. Don't use a misleading email address or IP address or otherwise manipulate identifiers in order to disguise your location or the origin of information you're providing to us or posting on TPT.
Make informed purchasing decisions. When you make a purchase on TPT, it’s your responsibility to review resource previews, read resource descriptions including software requirements, and use common sense when it comes to intellectual property concerns before making a purchase. Mistaken purchases may not be eligible for a refund.
Don’t spam. Don’t send or post content that constitutes unsolicited or unauthorized invitations, advertisements, or promotional materials through our services, or to members of our services whose contact information you’ve obtained through our services. The contact information of other members should only be used to fulfill purchases and deliver resources or other solicited materials or services. This section does not limit a Seller’s ability to purchase promotional space, use designated areas of their store page for promotional banners, or advertise on other platforms or services.
Don’t break the law. Don’t use TPT for any illegal or unauthorized purposes, such as to post content that is fraudulent, unlawful, or that violates the intellectual property, privacy, or any other rights of someone else. It’s your responsibility to post only the content that you have the right to post.
Respect the privacy rights of others. Don’t post content that includes the personal or private information, image, or likeness of someone else without their consent. Don't use TPT to collect personal information about other community members. Don't use or disclose personal information that you may acquire about another member for commercial, unlawful, or any other purpose other than delivering ordered resources or communicating with that member about a TPT transaction.
Don’t interfere with our Users. Don’t try to gain access to the account or computer of one of our users. Don’t post any content that contains viruses, malware, or other code or programs to interrupt, destroy, gain information from, or otherwise attack any computer system, software, hardware, or equipment.
