DartHeart's Commitment to Your Privacy
Your privacy is of the utmost importance to us. At DartHeart, we want to make your online experience satisfying and safe.
PARTICIPATION We're always excited to hear from a fellow survivor who wants to be involved! As a DartHeart member, we'd like to get to know you, offer you any support we can, and in turn, hope you'd be willing to offer advice and useful tips about your recovery from violence.
To post comments, respond to forum topics, and join one of our online support groups, you'll need to sign up for an account. Please choose a name that is appropriate while protecting your anonymity. Remember that your name is visible to other members and it's how they contact you. We regularly monitor forums and comments to ensure that everyone keeps a positive focus. We hope this makes you feel confident that you can participate in DartHeart safely.
USE OF INFORMATION DartHeart Inc. uses any information voluntarily given by you to enhance your experience on our website, whether to provide interactive or personalized elements on the pages or to better prepare future content based on your interests.
We use email addresses in order to send out electronic notifications and updates. We send these out when we think you might be particularly interested in something we are doing. Once you sign up, you can contact other members through our closed social network. If you choose to reveal more personal information directly including your email address, you have that option. DartHeart never shares mailing lists with any third parties, including sponsors or your fellow network members.
DartHeart gathers the email addresses of members who voluntarily subscribe. You may remove your email from this mailing list by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will not disclose information about any individual user except to comply with applicable law or valid legal process or to protect the personal safety of other DartHeart members or the public. Confidentiality is critical in building trust amongst all of us including survivors who use our website, the DartHeart Team and any other community supporters. We ask you to respect all network members' privacy so any information revealed in private discussions should not be shared with non-DartHeart members.
SUPPORT GROUPS Any information shared during the in-person meetings or in private online group forums will be understood as private, for group purposes only, not to be revealed at any other setting or to any non-DartHeart members. Confidentiality provides protection for all members, especially those who may still be at risk of violence or abuse.
FORUMS It is important to note that we practice positivity in our forums. This is not to say that we do not discuss challenging or sensitive topics, but we strive to encourage each other. We think it is very important to maintain a safe online space for sharing our experiences. We actively monitor posts to avoid certain pitfalls that can occur in online support groups such as sympathy-seekers or callous participants and to ensure that you can view the forums without fear of re-traumatization. Anyone who wishes to use our site complies with our show of mutual respect, understanding and tolerance to continue our healing without the setbacks of negative commentators.
