Remind has a zero-tolerance policy for bullying, harassment, and abuse, including any behavior that prevents or inhibits constructive communication. Our anti-bullying policies and practices are outlined here to help guide users if they see or experience bullying on Remind.
Users control their communication on Remind.
Report bullying communication or situations.
We encourage users to proactively report any bullying, harassment, or abuse that they see or experience on Remind. Bullying can include malicious words, rumors, threats of violence, or exclusion from groups or activities; it can also include messages that might seem innocuous outside of relevant contexts.
Users who have been reported may receive a warning or be banned from sending messages on Remind. In some cases, our team may decide to delete the account of a user who participates in bullying or other harmful behaviors.
Messages are permanently recorded.
Every message sent on Remind is automatically recorded unless we’re required by law to delete the information. These records allow our team, in partnership with teachers and administrators, to identify when bullying, abuse, or harassment occurs on Remind.
Messages can’t be edited or deleted after they’re sent. Users can always access a full history of the messages they’ve sent and received on Remind, even if other users delete their accounts
Safety is a shared responsibility.
We ask everyone in the Remind community to be aware of and take action against bullying. Although it’s impossible to monitor every space in a school community, working together helps keep communication focused on learning and engagement.
Seek help if you need it.
