Code of conduct

We support the free flow of information and ideas over the Internet and we encourage our members to express themselves and make use of the peer support available. However We do seek to balance this aim with our obligations to other Members and at law. We therefore require that You do not:

  • Say or do anything that would cause annoyance, inconvenience, harassment or needless anxiety to others.
  • Advertise or promote third party or Your own products or services including by way of the distribution of spam mail.
  • Use foul, threatening or offensive language including, without limitation, racist, sexist, ageist, homophobic or sexually explicit language where inappropriate.
  • Make insulting remarks to or about other Members or any person generally.
  • Distribute illegal, copyright infringing, indecent or offensive material or any messages or Member Content that may incite disorder or encourage illegal activities or that causes or may cause harm to minors.
  • Impersonate another person or Member or a moderator.
  • Transfer files that contain viruses, trojans or other harmful programs.
  • Use the Site to conduct any fraudulent activity including any ‘pyramid scheme’; ‘ponzi scheme’ or ‘chain letter’.
  • Access or attempt to access Members’ accounts or to penetrate or attempt to penetrate the Site security measures.

We may take any or all of the following actions at Our sole discretion:

  • Remove any Member Content or information (including Member profile photographs) that We deem inappropriate or We suspect to be illegal, may subject Us to liability or which may violate these Terms, the House Rules, Our Privacy policy or any privacy laws or where We are required to do so by law.
  • Issue Members with verbal or written warnings and take such further action as We deem appropriate if such warnings are not heeded.
  • Suspend or terminate a Member’s access to certain areas of the Site or a Member’s account without notice at any time.
  • Inform the appropriate authorities and provide them with information regarding any suspected illegal activity.
  • Bring legal action against a Member in relation to any breach of these terms or any illegal or suspected illegal activity.

We will determine what action is appropriate to be taken against a Member on a case by case basis.

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.

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.

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.

Risk or crisis situations – Anonymity on Togetherall

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 an eircode 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.

Pause Policy

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.
