Confidentiality Agreement

Beyond Bullies is committed to making this Web site a safe and enjoyable place for you. We understand how painful bullying and cyber bullying is and want to offer you an online community with discussion boards, private chat and ways to communicate with teens who are bullied and cyber bullied.

You are not alone. Teen Leaders will not judge you. Whether you are being teased, having rumors spread about you or if someone is using a social networking site to destroy your reputation, a teen leader is online to help you feel less alienated and scared.

The pain, suffering and loneliness can be overwhelming. They can help with basic bullying issues, but if you abused by an adult or minor, seriously depressed or suicidal, mentors will contact the Beyond Bullies program director.

Teen Leaders train not to discuss personal conversations with anyone except the program director. However, Beyond Bullies cannot guarantee the confidentiality of any information disclosed to teen leaders or registered users. Beyond Bullies has strict guidelines against any personal identifiers, including real names, phone numbers and names of bullies, used on the Web site, and accepts no responsibility for the misuse or distribution of any personal information that users voluntarily disclose on the site.

The Beyond Bullies program staff may review any content whether publicly or privately, at any time. In some instances, we may share this information with your parents, school, local authority or the police, if we think you are in danger. We will try to tell you, if we need to contact an adult.
