VIKTRE provides a platform for you – the athlete – to express yourself so that you can engage and connect with your fans, followers, sponsors, and beyond. We want everyone to feel safe and welcome to engage in the culture that you help VIKTRE build. For that reason, we have developed a Code of Conduct that serves as guidelines for what to post and not to post. These guidelines will help you maximize your VIKTRE experience and be socially responsible to your fans, yourself, and VIKTRE. Our goal is to provide content that is compelling, easily digestible, opinionated, original, and authentic.
Integrity and Respect: Treat your fellow members/athletes, fans, and followers with integrity and respect. Assume that everyone is acting from best intentions.
Global Mindset: Always consider that we have a global presence and participant population, and our philosophy and content reflects that scope.
Diversity: Respect and be open to differences in culture, sport, country, gender, language, lifestyle, and perspective.
Authenticity: Strive to be authentic in your writing and let fans and followers know the real you.
Unity of Purpose and Community: We value our members/athletes, fans, and followers and look to connect as one, as a team.
