At People Who we would like to offer you a place where all people can find useful services that will help them live better with their illness and where all users may find a guaranteed, secured, safe, private and respectful environment for them, their ideas and opinions.
It is therefore necessary for all platform users to accept a set of rules that regulate the effective use of it.
People Who is a platform aimed at those people that live with an illness and its main objective is to make their daily lives easier. That is why the access and use of all its features, contents and tools is free for everybody. You just need to register as a user to get access to certain areas of the platform, so you will need a valid email address.
By using this platform, you declare that you know this rule and you are over 18.
The use of your password is personal and non-transferable, and you must not give it to third parties. You will have to take the necessary steps to keep it safe and prevent third parties to gain access to it. Remember that you will be solely responsible for the use of your password without harm or prejudice for People Who. If you ever suspect that your password is being used by third parties, you should let us know as soon as possible by sending us an email to email@example.com.
All the information you provide must be true. Remember that you are the one who decides what you want to tell us. As a user, you must guarantee the authenticity of the data you provide, as you will be solely responsible for any false or inaccurate statements made, as well as for any prejudice to People Who, the rest of users or third parties and that may result as a consequence of it.
To keep you informed, the user registration includes a monthly email containing a report on your activity and the newsletters you are subscribed to. You will be able to modify the newsletters frequency or manage your subscription/unsubscription from ‘Your account’ section on People Who.
At People Who you will never be asked to provide any personal data that may identify you such as your name or surname. We only need a few data such as your year of birth, city or gender for statistical purposes. Those data may also be hidden to the rest of users on the platform. You must always act under your virtual profile and you cannot publish any personal data that may lead to know who you really are such as your real name or your email address.
To get in contact with other users in private mode you can use the private messaging system, which is only accessible to you and your recipients.
It is forbidden to choose as your username any offensive word or expression, coinciding with brands, trademarks, commercial names, email addresses, social denominations, commercial advertisements, names or pseudonyms of public individuals for which use it is not authorized, and in general, contrary to the law or demands of morality and proper consuetude.
We want to make sure that your privacy is always protected. For that reason, the use of photos of people as your virtual profile picture is forbidden. You can choose one of the avatars (pictures) we suggest or you can upload a picture from your computer. But remember that the use of photos of people is not allowed. In the same vein, the use of pictures that may hurt the sensibility of other people is also forbidden.
Health is a delicate matter and the prescription of medicines is the job of doctors in their offices. We want to avoid inadequate prescriptions or business transactions not allowed by the existing regulation, so you must not write brands of medicines or names of pharmaceutical laboratories in public conversations. If you write brands of medicines, they will be replaced by their active substance or main ingredient. If you write the name of a laboratory, it will be replaced by an asterisk. If any of them falls out of our hands, we ask you to help us by reporting that publication.
Each and every shared article or publication should be based on such principle. All individuals, whatever their personal and social conditions, have the right to express their views as long as they respect the rest of the users. Equally, the rest of the Community members should respect those opinions, regardless of whether they share them or not.
First and foremost, we hope that the communication inside the Community is enclosed by rules and standards of cordiality, respect, courtesy and cooperation and that these principles are reflected in the way the language is used and the contents shared. We ask that you always use an adequate and friendly tone: it is essential to create a good atmosphere on the platform.
Take into account that you will be solely responsible for the data, opinions, messages and information that you introduce in the platform, for their veracity and appropriateness to the purposes you are introducing them for, as well as for the harms and prejudices you may be causing to People Who and third parties by posting them. People Who excludes any liability for the data, opinions, messages and information that you decide to introduce in the platform. People Who is not responsible under any circumstances for the private messages sent by users to other users inside the platform, for any damage and/or prejudice of any kind or nature that may be caused by the access and, if so, the interception, deletion, modification or other form of tampering by third parties authorized – or not -, of the messages, contents, information or pictures that users make available to third parties through the tools available in the platform.
You cannot use any material you find in our platform for illicit and forbidden purposes according to these conditions, running counter to the interests of People Who, its members, collaborators, users, and/or third parties.
