Your Privacy and Respecting the Privacy of Others - Joshua - 05-21-2014 10:52 AM

FTM Surgery Support Forums are public forums indexed by search engines. Please keep this in mind when picking your username and posting messages. Your privacy is in your hands.

Please note item #16 in the forums' User Guidelines:

Quote:16. We know that people will have to leave our community (of their own free will or otherwise) from time to time and to that end, we do not delete accounts, posts, or other content posted on our community. All content is granted to us with perpetual electronic publishing rights because any content posted on this community becomes a part of the community, even if you no longer are. You may request an item to be removed at any time, but we will decide when and if to remove content from our community. If you wish to no longer be identified with our community, we will be glad to close your account and alter your profile information to remove all identifying characteristics. After account closure, you will no longer be able to participate in this community and this action is not reversible.

Respect other people's privacy by not posting private information about other forum members or non-members. Do not lift discussions from private web spaces, such as mailing lists, Facebook groups and private forums, for discussion here. Be extremely cautious in discussing other people's surgery experiences. Unless those experiences are public knowledge (for example, published on a blog on in a book) it's highly likely that posting about it will be inappropriate. Our community is small and even without naming names you may inadvertently identify someone, violating their right to privacy.

Thank you for taking matters of privacy seriously.
