Netiquette is an informal guideline that emphasizes politeness and adherence to established practices in network operations. You can learn more about netiquette in the Finnish Internet Guide.
Jamk’s ethical principles
Jamk’s ethical regulations and principles guides behavior in social media alongside values (responsibility, trust, creativity).
In Finland, works have a protection period lasting for the author’s lifetime and 70 years after his death. During this time, the work may not be used without permission. Copyrights also include another owner’s rights, which protect the work of performing artists. The protection period for another owner’s rights is 50 years. Protection means, for example, that an artistic performance (literary, musical artistic etc …) may not be recorded without the artist’s permission.
The same laws apply to the Help website as elsewhere in society. The fact that text or image is easy to copy, process and publish again is not a defense to breaking the law. Copyright is valid even if, for example, a www page does not have a special copyright notice.
For more information on copyrights, see e.g. Copyright ABC.
Accessibility means that websites and mobile applications and its content are such that anyone can use them with different devices or aids and understand what they say. Accessibility is therefore the accessibility of the web world.
The Help website must comply with the WCAG 2.1 guidelines A and AA level criteria. The website is constantly developed by the administration to make it more accessible. Accessibility is monitored and measured using automated tools. In addition, it is especially important to take into account the responsibility of each content producer for making the content of the website as accessible as possible.
