Privacy and Content Distribution

I understand the WA Department of Transport (Department) may take immediate action on any account, including any account established by me, that it believes to be using the Your Move website to share or distribute private data.

Duty of Care to Students
Teaching staff and/or parents and guardians take full responsibility and have a duty to take reasonable care for the safety and welfare of students whilst students are involved in school activities or are present for the purposes of a school activity related to the Your Move website.
The duty is for teaching staff and/or parents and guardians to take such measures as are reasonable in all the circumstances to protect students from risks of harm that reasonably ought to be foreseen. This requires not only protection from known hazards, but also protection from harm that could foreseeably arise and against which preventative measures can be taken.
When non-teaching staff, volunteers and external providers agree to perform tasks that require them personally to care for students (in the absence of a member of the teaching staff), they also owe a duty to take such measures as are reasonable in all the circumstances to protect students from risks of harm that reasonably ought to be foreseen.
In satisfying the duty of care owed to students, teaching staff must exercise their professional judgement to achieve a balance between ensuring that students do not face an unreasonable risk of harm online, encouraging students' independence and maximising learning opportunities.
I will not use the Your Move website platform for inappropriate or illegal purposes, including posting rude, suggestive or reproachful comments to other users in order to abuse and/or harass them.
I will not actively promote violence or extreme hatred against individuals or groups, on the basis of race, national or ethnic origin, religion, disability, gender, age, veteran status, or sexual orientation.
I will not post links to other websites which contain inappropriate or illegal content or are otherwise inappropriate for people under the age of 18.
I will not post disparaging or overly negative comments about the Department, the State Government of Western Australia, individuals or organisations employed or otherwise working for the Department or the State Government of Western Australia.
Your Move usernames are for the use and enjoyment of our users and for others to discover you on the site. I will not share, squat, hoard, collect, trade, or sell usernames to other people.
I will ensure that I and others in my organisation follow occupational health and safety laws when undertaking any activity associated with the Your Move website the program, or using an item received from the Your Move program in order to avoid injury while using such item.
The Department reserves the right to modify any and all individual or organisation point balances, including accreditation levels, associated with the Your Move program.
The Department reserves the right to alter the points cost of any and all shop items available through the Your Move program without notice.

We make an effort to follow up and review reported content or behavior as soon as possible and we may remove offending content and limit or shut down the accounts of users who violate our policies.
