The OvaGraph website, forums and downloadable app are designed to serve as a supportive, helpful resource for the trying-to-conceive community. To ensure that they satisfy their mission, we ask that participants adhere to the following rules and guidelines.
Tone: The tone employed when engaging in the forums should be a supportive one. Please refrain from posting judgmental or hurtful topics or replies. OvaGraph requires that all posters refrain from using profane language, or any other language that, at OvaGraph's sole discretion, is deemed to be rude, false and/or defamatory, abusive, vulgar, hateful, harassing, obscene, threatening, offensive, racist, invasive of a person's privacy, antagonistic or intentionally argumentative or otherwise objectionable. Users agree not to engage in abuse, insults, slander, antagonism, name-calling, and ill-will directed towards OvaGraph members, guides, moderators, staff and administrators or its service. Abuse reports are taken seriously to maintain a peaceful and supportive atmosphere. OvaGraph reserves the right to revoke access to our Forums for anyone abusing these guidelines at our sole discretion with or without notice. Insults, antagonism, or general rudeness directed at volunteer moderators, guides and site administrators will not be tolerated under any circumstances.
Promotion of External Web Sites, Products, Services, etc: Commercial postings of all kinds are prohibited. The selling of drugs, tests and other products, fertility related or not, is prohibited. Posting for the sole purpose of generating traffic to external sites (commercial or not) is also prohibited. Community members are asked to support and respect this vision and refrain from engaging in any kind of commercial activity, product, business or site promotion in the community Forums, whether or not it is related to fertility and pregnancy. In addition, members are asked to refrain from targeting this community and its members for research or conducting focus groups for any purpose - academic, commercial or otherwise.
Links: OvaGraph assumes no responsibility for the content provided on any pages linked from the Forums. Posting links to related sites is also prohibited and may be removed at our discretion.
Spamming or Attempts to Collect Personal Information and Email Addresses: Spamming (multiple posts, messages or private messages dealing with the promotion of a site, product or idea) is not tolerated. In addition, attempts to collect personal information from members (such as by asking for email addresses, posting an email address soliciting responses, posting phone numbers, etc.) is prohibited. In addition, “silent spamming” (ie, including a link, text or image to promote a site, product or business in your signature or anywhere in your posts) is not permitted. If you choose to share your email address or other personal information, OvaGraph assumes no responsibility for any unwanted contact or any further issues arising from such contact.
Posting of Copyrighted Material: We ask you to refrain from posting material that you are not authorized to reproduce or that is invasive of others' rights and privacy. This includes any copyrighted articles or other material, private messages and the content of private emails and letters as well as the personal information of others (email addresses, home addresses and phone numbers, etc).
Accounts: Members may have one account. Multiple or second accounts will be closed without warning.
Miscellaneous: OvaGraph may remove or edit any content to maintain its community standards or deemed at its sole discretion not to be in the best interest of the site and/or community for any reason. Failure to comply may result in the deletion of your content or the termination of your community access with or without warning at our sole discretion. While banning is infrequent and normally occurs only after repeated offenses or an expression of unwillingness to follow the rules, it is irrevocable.
By registering at OvaGraph, you automatically agree to these terms. Information provided at OvaGraph is for educational purposes only and is not a substitute for professional medical advice.
If you suspect a member is violating any of these terms, which are put in place to protect the integrity of this community, please contact Ovagraph support.
