How to get help
Keep it relevant
For everyone's benefit please stay on topic. The Infineon Developer Community is specifically provided to allow users and customers of Infineon to help each other in using Infineon products and associated assistance from Infineon. Please refrain from discussing off-topic matters, abusing any company or product, or, in general, from posting in a manner unrelated to the resolution of issues regarding Infineon products and services.
Keep it courteous
Everyone wants to have a positive experience while the Infineon Developer Community – your use of this Community should not detract from any other user's experience. In particular, please refrain from posting anything defamatory, obscene, infringing or other unlawful material or information.
Your opinions are always welcome, but personal attacks and harassment ("flaming") of other members in either the Infineon Developer Community public areas or through Private Messaging (PM) is not acceptable.
Keep it clear
Please communicate clearly so everyone may understand. Avoid using slang, "net speak" or any other wording which might be difficult for all users to understand. We are a diverse community and seek to provide a comfortable environment where you can easily get help from other users. We ask that you post resources and discussion topics in English language so the majority of members can read and respond. We also offer alternate language groups to foster interaction in your local language. If you need help locating an alternate language group please email the Infineon Developer Community Manager.
Keep it spam-free
The Infineon Developer Community is provided as a service to Infineon users and customers and is not intended for the promotion of yours or other third-party services, products, websites, or organizations. Posting content that would constitute advertising, junk mail, spam, chain letters, or any other form of solicitation will not be tolerated.
If you do share or promote your materials or products, please be sure referencing them is directly relevant to the topic at hand. Please only share or promote materials which you own or have the rights to distribute, and which you provide free of charge in entirety on the Infineon Developer Community. Documents, links and downloads referencing content owned by other entities, linking to an external site requiring payment or personal information will be deleted.
You should not post personal information publicly on the Infineon Developer Community including your name and address, age, phone number, social security number or other personal identification number. Most people in the Infineon Developer Community are happy to help out but remember that their advice is theirs only and that you are responsible for deciding whether or not to follow it. Cypress is not responsible for advice given in the Infineon Developer Community.
The Cypress Developer Community moderation is staffed entirely by Infineon employees. Infineon may designate certain non-employee members as a guest blogger or feature them as a valued member in the Infineon Developer Community. This designation does not create an employee or agency relationship between Infineon and this member, nor does it make this member a company spokesperson. Instead, the designation allows the Infineon Developer Community to know which members have been helpful, have provided constructive advice and have set a positive example and tone for the community. Like any information posted on the Community, the opinions and advice provided by these members are their own and are subject to these guidelines.
