Calyxt Community Guidelines

Our Calyxt Community, which currently consists of Twitter, LinkedIn and Facebook channels, was created to allow Calyxt to interact with the public and share information about the company and/or other relevant information regarding the space we work within. We’ll do our best to talk candidly about the topics that are important to you, listen to your feedback, answer your questions and be transparent about sharing information and providing our perspective.

Our company values the importance of open communication and transparency, but we also have to be sure that we comply with the laws that apply to our business and our corporate ethics. Please remember that the comments and responses on our channels that are not posted by us come from members of the public. The content of these comments (including opinions and statements) posted on our channels do not necessarily reflect the views of the social media site or its owner, and are the responsibility of the individuals posting them.

Because of the important regulations that govern our industry, Calyxt may have to remove comments and/or other information or feedback that users post on our social media platforms if they do not comply with these Community Guidelines. Calyxt may update these Community Guidelines at any time, so please remember to check back periodically to confirm our latest guidelines.

Remain Respectful and On-Topic

We want all our community visitors to be treated with respect and to feel welcome in the Calyxt community. We encourage and appreciate your comments and feedback, provided that you share your viewpoint in a way that is respectful to us and our community. Any posts violating these guidelines will be removed.

As we comply with the U.S. government and other regulatory agencies, we may remove discussions of any product, approved or unapproved, positive or negative, that relates to a Calyxt product or that of another company because if we cannot guarantee that the discussion will contain the proper information, as required by government or regulatory agencies.
