We created RevivAll so that everyone who’s been affected by chronic disease would have a safe place to discuss their health and wellness. These guidelines are the things we expect all RevivAll members to do, and not to do.
Freedom of speech rights do not extend to privately-owned websites and applications like RevivAll. The below community guidelines detail the types of behavior and activities that are allowed. If you violate our guidelines or show disregard for members of our community, you run the risk of losing your account. Being a member of RevivAll is a privilege, not a right.
1. Be supportive.
Do your best to respect differing points of view and avoid personal attacks on other members. RevivAll members are expected to support and care for one another. Remember, you’re interacting with other human beings. If someone says something that bothers you, consider this: they may be having a bad day or may be upset; you may have misunderstood their tone; you both may see things differently and there’s nothing wrong with that. RevivAll works when members respect one another.
2. Keep your personal information safe.
We strongly recommend you not use your full name or e-mail address as your screen name. Your screen name is public, which means anyone on the Internet can see it, and find it. If you want to change your screen name, you can do so in the “Settings” area of RevivAll’s applications. We also recommend you not post personally identifiable information like your full name, e-mail address or phone number in RevivAll.
3. Don’t use RevivAll as a substitute for, or to give, medical or mental health advice
You may not use RevivAll to give medical or mental health advice. You may share information about your experiences, but do not play the role of health professional.
Always consult your physician or health provider and do not rely on information discovered through RevivAll when making decisions about your physical or mental health. The content in RevivAll is for information and support only. It is not reviewed by medical or mental health professionals. RevivAll is not a substitute for professional medical or mental health advice, diagnosis, or treatment.
4. Protect the safety of our community.
If you see a member doing something that is contrary to these guidelines or simply feels wrong to you, let us know. You can do so by voting on forum posts as not helpful, or reporting feed posts. We never reveal who reported a problem to us. Responding in an inflammatory manner to a post that you feel should be reported is against our guidelines and will result in appropriate action. If a moderator removes a forum discussion, it violates our guidelines—don’t repost it.
Community managers and site moderators have the final say on any issues that arise. If you have a complaint, contact us directly by email or via the settings area of the RevivAll application. Creating forum posts that question or reference administrative decisions, such as forum post or feed removals is not permitted. Any posts containing such criticisms will be removed without notice. If you feel that we have made a mistake, please contact our Support Team and we will review the situation.
5. Be civil.
Our utmost concern is that RevivAll serves as a safe and comfortable space for our members. Any content that is obscene or violent, refers to material that is obscene or violent, or contains hate speech or remarks that are disrespectful to any race, religion, gender, sexual orientation or individual is not permitted. This includes derogatory remarks, attacks, or threats against RevivAll or RevivAll partners. Content that is potentially libelous, violates an individual’s privacy, or violates the legal rights of any individual or entity is not permitted. Links to other sites which contain such material are also not permitted. The “reasonable person” standard applies and we reserve the right to remove any content or member that we feel violates this guideline.
6. Respect the privacy of others.
As a member of RevivAll, you must respect the privacy of other members and their right to remain anonymous. Never post the personal information of another member unless you have been directed to do so by the member, or their family. If you know a RevivAll member in the real world, please avoid posting information that could be used to identify the person. For example, don’t post another member’s real name, or names of their children, if they haven’t made that information public themselves. When in doubt, take caution and leave those details out.
Refrain from demanding or continually requesting that other members share any personal information, credentials or medical information they may not wish to disclose. Also, refrain from re-posting information about a member from other sites like Facebook. He/she may not have intended that information be shared with a wider audience.
7. Don’t use RevivAll to exchange medication
RevivAll should not be used to facilitate the donation, exchange or receipt of medication, as it is against the law to do so. If you’re interested in donating unused medication, you’ll first need to determine how the laws of your country and locality govern medication donations. Many U.S. states have programs through which unused medication can be donated and distributed to those in need. Consulting your state’s Web site, physician, or pharmacist to find more information on the options available to you. You’re welcome to share information on law-abiding programs on RevivAll, but still prohibited from using RevivAll to engage in or facilitate the exchange of medication.
