CODE OF CONDUCT
Our community on MyDonorFamily provides a safe online forum where we help donor offspring and parents with donor children connect with donor offspring of the same donor. On MyDonorFamily these families can meet and share mutual thoughts, information, and experiences - anonymously or non-anonymously.
As a donor offspring or a parent with donor children, you’ll always be welcome in our community, as long as you are kind, honest and respectful. If you choose not to be, your behaviour may lead to immediate termination of your account and membership.
MyDonorFamily reserves the right to periodically review the content you upload and the messages you send within the messaging system to monitor for abuse of our Code of Conduct. We encourage you to report any behaviour that violates our Code of Conduct by email on firstname.lastname@example.org
