Such third party websites are not investigated, monitored or checked for accuracy, appropriateness, or completeness by Us, and We are not responsible for any websites You may access via a recommendation or suggestion on the Site.

We are not responsible for the policies, content or security of these linked websites, including how they protect Your privacy and collect, use and disclose Personal Information. We strongly encourage You to review the privacy policies applicable to any linked websites You visit.
9.1 We support the free flow of information and ideas over the Internet and do not actively monitor use of the Site, under normal circumstances, although We reserve the right to do so. However We do seek to balance this aim with our obligations to other Members and at law. You must not:
9.1.1 Say or do anything that would reveal Your identity or the identity of another person.
9.1.2 Say or do anything that would cause annoyance, inconvenience, harassment or needless anxiety to others.
9.1.3 Advertise or promote third party or Your own products or services including by way of the distribution of spam mail.

9.2.5 Bring legal action against a Member in relation to any breach of these terms or any illegal or suspected illegal activity.
9.3 We will determine what action is appropriate to be taken against a Member on a case by case basis.
9.4 You are solely responsible for Your interactions with other Members. We reserve the right, but have no obligation, to monitor disputes between You and other Members.
9.5 Without limiting any of the foregoing, you also agree to abide by Our House Rules that provide further information regarding the authorised conduct of Members while on the Site and which form part of these Terms.
9.6 You acknowledge that We may be required by law or regulation to access, monitor, store or copy material sent by or to Members without further notice to You.
Members identities are always kept from other members. Any breaches to this House Rule within member to member interactions are taken very seriously and could result in deactivation of Togetherall accounts.
Anonymity between Wall Guides and members is also taken seriously. Measures are taken to ensure you are anonymous and, at the point of Togetherall registration, Wall Guides do not have access to personal details you provide, only your user name. We do our utmost to ensure that it stays this way and have House Rules to help protect your identity. We at times will edit out identifying information from interactions with Wall Guides if it is unnecessary and may breach that confidentiality.
However, if there are times that we have serious and immediate concerns for the safety of yourself and others, we do have a process where Wall Guides may seek identifying information from a member we are concerned about. This is limited to circumstances where there are serious concerns to the safety for yourself or others.
In those circumstances Wall Guides may escalate concerns about a member to a senior clinician and may ask a member for details about where they are and contact details for them.
If a member is unable to confirm their safety or we do not hear back from them, we may give any information we do have to the emergency services, seek support from your commissioning body (such as your university or employer) and/or your GP. We would do this with the intention of helping and keeping members safe. We have a professional duty of care and sometimes, depending on the circumstances, a legal duty, to do this. The information we have depends on the contract under which a member signs up and might for example include a post code and date of birth.
Where it is possible, we will let you know what actions we are taking unless we feel it’s not safe to do so.
Togetherall is not a mental health crisis service. We keep our community safe by linking members who are at immediate risk with external providers of crisis or emergency care when needed. While a member is accessing crisis support, it may be necessary to temporarily pause their account to ensure they are able to fully engage with support services until the crisis period is resolved. Whenever possible, we will only pause Your account after We have confirmed that You have been linked to appropriate services.
We may also pause Your account for the reasons of trolling or intended noncompliance with our House Rules, and/or our Terms.
If We pause Your account, You will be notified in two ways. First, Our Clinical Team will send You a message on the platform explaining why Your account is being paused, highlighting any relevant Crisis and support resources. Depending on how frequently You have been using Your account, We will pause your account after some time to ensure You have an opportunity to read the message before We pause your account.
Second, We will also send You an email to explain the reason for pausing Your Account, reiterating relevant support contacts & local resource options.
When Your account is paused, You will not be able to access Our services. However, any member who has had their account paused can contact Us once the period of crisis has passed for consideration of a return to the platform by Our Clinical Team.
Reactivating Your Account After Pause
If We have paused Your account, You may be able to access our Site again. The decision to reactivate Your account is taken on a case-by-case basis and is dependent on factors such as (1) Your willingness to share Personal Information, (2) Your sharing of a safety plan with Us such that Our Clinical Team can readily contact Your supports (such as Your General Practitioner or care provider) in the event of further crisis following reactivation, and (3) an indication that You will work with Us to keep yourself safe following reactivation. Generally, Our Clinical Team will allow members to return in these circumstances, as We do not wish to exclude anyone from the community where they can safely re-join.
We will not tolerate trolling activity, and breaching of Our Terms, and House Rules. In these cases, You may lose access to Your account permanently.
13.1 You may cancel your membership at any time by notifying us through our contact form.
13.2 We may terminate Your Membership, delete Your account and Your Member Content and/or prohibit You from using or accessing the Site for any reason, or no reason, at any time in Our sole discretion, with or without notice, including without limitation if We believe that You are under 16.
13.3 Your access to Togetherall may end if the organization that funds your access no longer partners with Togetherall. In these cases, you will receive begin receiving a notification on the platform 30 days in advance of your access ending. If you have tried to log into Togetherall and have been notified that your account has expired, Togetherall is unfortunately no longer available through the access route that you initially used when registering for the service. You may be able to register using an alternative access route using the onscreen prompts – if you have any questions or need further support, please contact us and we can assist you further.
