REACHING OUT’S DISCLOSURE & PRIVACY POLICY

DISCLOSURES
1. This site is NOT in any way connected to or promoting any religious doctrine or affiliation. Any expression of faith by the contributors, which we encourage, must be considered solely individualist in nature. We acknowledge there are many doctrines of faith, and it is not our position to espouse one above another. We recognize each individual’s rights and freedoms in personal issues of faith.

2. When the subject of alternative treatments is mentioned by anyone on this site, it is in NO WAY endorsed by this site. We encourage all individuals to go to a licensed physician before beginning ANY treatment or medication. We do, however, encourage all discussion about any and all options for improving one’s health.

3. The groups may be visited by ALL ages. Therefore, ANY cussing, pornography (either pictures posted or discussed), flaming other members or staff or of people on other sites, or ANY other inappropriate act, deemed so by the staff, will not be allowed and could result in immediate banning of that member from the web site. They may no longer be able to be involved in chats or groups provided by this web site. So keep it clean! Keep it safe! Children may be here!

4. Any products mentioned by sponsors, members or staff must be considered solely individualist in nature and are NOT endorsed by this site in any way. Mentioning of any product on this site will be allowed, except for sexual, unlawful, or any other product deemed inappropriate by staff.

5. This site does not sell ANY information to anyone about you.

6. We are NOT responsible for any information you release to others about yourself. We do, in the groups, gather other member’s contact information (full name, address and phone number). We do this so Reaching Out can contact the members. We also, with permission, will release this contact information to other members of the group so they too can contact other members. This is something we do because of the closeness we develop with each other. We are not, however, responsible for what other members do with the information you have given out. We encourage you to NEVER give ANY FINANCIAL information about yourself like your bank account and/or credit card numbers. We cannot guarantee our ability to keep all bad people off this site. We will do our best, and with your help, we will do better. But there may be bad people who hit this site with the intention of harming someone in some way. Remember, you’re precious to us, and to yourself, so keep safe!

7. This site provides links or references to other web sites not affiliated or sponsored by Reaching Out. Such links are provided only as a convenience to other users. Reaching Out has not reviewed all of the sites linked to us, and is therefore not responsible for the content on other sites. Linking to any pages from this site is at your own risk. We are not liable for any damages or injury arising from users’ access to other sites.

8. We will release information about you to appropriate people or authorities in the event that you use this site or any group associated with this site to commit any crime, to attempt any form of security breach of this site or its included groups, or any other act which Reaching Out feels needs to be documented to outside sources.

9. We also reserve the right to eject any site, group or chat participant for any violation of our policies, deemed so by the staff.
