oOh! Media Terms of Engagement
Hijacked is a platform that allows you to post, comment and share your awesome, buzz worthy and shareable content online and on a mobile platform. Some of your stuff could also get shared across digital signage on 50 tertiary campuses, as well as across a wider community of social media platforms like Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter.
By interacting with the Hijacked community, you agree to your content being published across these various capacities. You also agree with our Terms of Engagement (see below) and to generally being a decent human being online. Hijacked reserves the right to remove, edit or otherwise modify any post that does not adhere to these Terms of Engagement.
Hijacked is a digital campus that connects university, college and TAFE students from across the nation; a bit like a giant virtual hangout between lectures. This means we expect you to treat other Hijacked users like you would any other student in real life. You can giggle, debate, flirt or disagree over the meaning of life as much as you like … but we don’t tolerate trolling or unwarranted aggression.
To keep things classy, please don’t post inappropriate, abusive or offensive content on Hijacked. This means any posts depicting, containing or referencing excessively profane language, vulgarism and/or any derogatory allusions to any ethnic, religious or sexual groups. Essentially, use your brain before you post.
Hijacked respects and adheres to intellectual property laws. This means that by posting Student Voice content to our website, you agree that you own the rights to any content posted (i.e. you wrote those words yourself and didn’t just rip them straight off Wikipedia). Student Voice content is defined as any content uploaded by a tertiary student to our 'Content' pages.
Get out of town
If you break any of these Terms of Engagement, Hijacked reserves the right to delete any of your offensive or inappropriate content, including comments, posts, forum threads or Student Voice content. If you continue to have violate terms in the future, Hijacked also reserves the right to revoke your account, and you will be unable to contribute to Hijacked in any capacity. The same rules apply to those who post spam.
Hijacked also has a ‘three strikes’ policy that allows users to report inappropriate or offensive content, including comments, posts, forum threads or Student Voice content. If your content receives three reports, it will be taken down automatically.
