Prohibited content and use
Slack is a workplace tool intended for use by businesses and organisations and not for consumer purposes. Each Workspace is controlled by a Customer that is typically your employer or another organisation that has sent you an invitation to work together. The Customer may have corporate policies and legal requirements applicable to use of their instance of Slack and all Authorised Users should review and comply with these requirements. In addition, to help ensure a safe and productive work environment, Authorised Users must comply with our acceptable use policy and all laws, rules and regulations applicable to the use of Slack’s technology tools.
How do I report inappropriate behaviour or content?
Each Customer is represented by owners and admins who manage their Workspace. If you see inappropriate behaviour or content, please report it to your Workspace’s owner, an admin or your employer. You may find the contact information for your Workspace owners and admins within Slack or by checking your Workspace settings. Owners and admins have tools to edit or delete messages within their Workspace and can deactivate an Authorised User’s account.
