Bayer Community Guidelines

Community guidelines articulate how we expect our community to engage on our channels. We share these guidelines externally for transparency and consistency.


1. Rules of Engagement

  • Be respectful.

  • Everyone has the right to express their own opinion. We invite discussion as long as  everyone involved remains respectful.

  • Please refrain from using obscene or offensive language. Bullying will not be tolerated.

2. Deleting messages and banning of Facebook accounts

The following actions violate the terms of use and will result in the immediate deletion of posted messages and ban of the user:

  • Disparaging comments about institutions, organizations or companies, and individuals  including sexist or racist comments, hate propaganda, calls of violence, personal insults  or degrading comments.

  • Any violation of the rights of third parties, including copyrights.

  • Calls to join in demonstrations or rallies of any political orientation.

  • Offering goods or services, of either a commercial or private nature, or using this space for advertising or promotional purposes.

  • Spam, i.e., any form of automatically generated content or repeatedly posting the same comment.

3. Disclaimers

  • For deleting posts and/or banning users: Bayer does not condone or engage in harmful activity. We understand opinions in the community might not agree with us, and while we welcome respectful dialogue, we appreciate your understanding regarding our right to remove content or users who break our community guidelines.
