  • Do not use vulgar language or profanities.
  • Do not promote or do anything to discredit a political party or its representatives.
  • Do not repeatedly post the same comment, spam or advertisement in any form.

Comments must be relevant and related to the content of the publications.

The Gatineau Hot Air Balloon Festival is not responsible for the comments and opinions of users.

Moderation

The Gatineau Hot Air Balloon Festival moderates all comments shared on its social media to ensure constructive and respectful interaction.

Any comment deemed inappropriate, that does not comply with this directive, or the terms of use of its social media will be deleted. The Gatineau Hot Air Balloon Festival reserves the right to ban any user who does not comply with the established rules.

Response time

The Gatineau Hot Air Balloon Festival constantly monitors its social media and responds promptly to comments made in its publications. Since it is sometimes necessary to check with other departments, a delay in response may be expected.

These rules of online conduct are subject to change at any time and without notice.
