You must comply with the spirit and the letter of the following standards. The standards apply to each part of any contribution you make to Dr Fertility (including the Forum) as well as to its whole.
Please note that all contributions must be in English (so that we can effectively moderate the Forum). You may link to specific URLs (web site addresses) in your contributions where these provide essential background reading.

For your safety we advise that you never reveal any personal information about yourself or anyone else on the Forum (for example: telephone number, home address or email address), and please do not include postal addresses of any kind. If you have a helpful address to share, please advise the site administrators. While the administrators and moderators of the Forum will attempt to remove or edit any generally objectionable material as quickly as practicable, it is not possible for us to review every message. Therefore you acknowledge that all posts made to the Forum express the views and opinions of the author. The views expressed by other users on Dr Fertility do not (necessarily) represent our views or values.

This IP Licence ends when you delete your IP content or your account provided that your content may still be accessible if it has been shared with others, and we are not obligated to delete IP content shared by you.

However, you understand that removed content may persist in backup copies for a reasonable period of time (but will not be available to others).When you use an application, your content and information is shared with the application. We require applications to respect your privacy, and your agreement with that application will control how the application can use, store, and transfer that content and information.
When you publish content or information using the “Public” setting, it means that you are allowing everyone, including other website users , to access and use that information, and to associate it with you (i.e. your name and profile picture). We advise that you never reveal any personal information about yourself or anyone else (telephone number, home address, business address, delivery address or email address or any other details that would allow you to be personally identified).
We always appreciate your feedback or other suggestions about Dr Fertility, but you understand that we may use them without any obligation to compensate you for them (just as you have no obligation to offer them).If you do not want to grant Dr Fertility the permission set out above on these terms, please do not submit or share your contribution on the forum or review sections.
