Terms and conditions of use for invited members of our Community of Influence

Communities of Influence are places where invited members are free to express their opinions and feelings towards topics and subjects raised in surveys and polls displayed within their personal My Voice space.

Unless specified otherwise, the views expressed by any individual member will be held in strictest confidence and will only be used to inform the collective insights provided by the community as a whole. Results and findings are analysed for the community as a whole and reported on as a collective analysis.

No comments, remarks or information will be associated with any named member of the community.

Anononimity is protected and guaranteed at all times.

Please ensure that :

Information given about yourself is correct and that you alone can receive and read emails sent to the email address you supply.

You take full responsibility for any content you add to the website and that others will not be able to use your account.

You inform the administrators if you see content that breaks these rules.

You agree that you must evaluate, and bear all risks associated with, the use of any content, including any reliance on the accuracy, completeness, or usefulness of such content.

You acknowledge, consent and agree that the administrators of the TogetherWeCan communities may access, preserve and disclose your account information and content if required to do so by law or in a good faith belief that such access preservation or disclosure is reasonably necessary to:

  • Comply with legal process
  • Enforce the rules
  • Respond to claims that any content violates the rights of third parties
  • Respond to your requests for customer service; or protect the rights, property or personal safety of any other member.

Tea-break activities

My Voice will host activities that we refer to as tea-breaks. These are short and quick opportunities for a community member to view and decide whether or not to complete.

These could be surveys, polls or invitations to participate in open discussions.

The content of the tea-breaks is determined from time to time by People Matters Network, the organisation behind the TogetherWeCan communities of influence. Members of the community are given the opportunity to influence the subjects covered in tea-breaks and suggest their own content.

Further rules and guidelines for members who participate in discussions

Those members of the community who wish to join and participate in one of the many discussions open to community members will do so with the full knowledge that the views they express will be shared with other participants.

Participants of discussions are politely asked to respect all other participants and the opportunity they are given to present their views.

Some guidelines for use:

Please keep comments relevant to the discussion topic.

Be courteous and endeavor to keep any submission objective and factual.

Do not submit defamatory comments (i.e. comments that are untrue and capable of damaging the reputation of a person or an organisation).

Do not condone illegal activity or incite people to commit any crime, including incitement of racial hatred.

Do not submit comments that could prejudice on-going or forthcoming court proceedings (contempt of court) or break a court injunction.

Do not submit comments containing someone else’s copyright material.

Do not swear or use language that could offend other forum participants.

Do not otherwise submit comments that are unlawful, harassing, abusive, threatening, harmful, obscene, profane, sexually orientated or racially offensive. This includes comments that are offensive to others with regards to religion, gender, nationality or other personal characteristic.

Do not impersonate other forum members or falsely claim to represent a person or an organisation.

Do not submit comments or choose user names that contain personal information that would identify yourself or others.

Do not post comments in languages other than English.

Do not advertise or promote products or services.

Do not spam or flood the discussions. Only submit a comment once. Do not resubmit the same, or similar, comments. Keep the number of comments you submit on a topic at a reasonable level. Multiple comments from the same individual, or a small number of individuals, may discourage others from contributing.

Do not use an inappropriate user name (vulgar, offensive etc.).

If you are under the age of 16, please obtain your parent/guardian’s permission before participating in any discussion. Users without this consent are not allowed to participate or provide us with personal information.

Community Points where appropriate

In recognition of the support provided by members of the community of influence, points will be awarded for each tea-break completed.

Any decision to run draws or raffles and the recognition of members’ contributions through the award of prizes or certificates will be taken by People Matters Network.

Individual members of the community are not paid for their services and any support is freely given in the recognition that their time is voluntary.

Members of the community of influence will be informed of all awards.

People Matters Network will oversee the activities of the communities of influence and reserves the right to:

Pre-moderated or post- moderated comments, using the above discussion rules.

Respond to all violations of those rules or local laws in any way needed, including removing content and reporting any misuse to any appropriate authority.

Close the account of any member that repeatedly break the terms of use.

Change or amend the rules of use without prior notice.

People Matters Network agrees to take all reasonable steps to preserve the confidentiality of any information, which comes into its possession through its dealings with the client by its staff, consultants and any other party involved in servicing the client under the Licence Agreement.
