Terms and Conditions

1. Purpose

Global Goodwill Ambassadors Foundation (hereinafter referred to as Foundation is committed to providing an environment for members, volunteers) that is comfortable, safe and free from harassment of any kind. Any type of harassment is a violation of our Code of Ethics policy and will result in loss of your Global Goodwill Ambassador designation and may be illegal.

Social Media: We understand that social media can be a fun and rewarding way to share your life and opinions with family, friends and collogues around the world. However, the use of social media also presents certain risks and carries with it certain responsibilities. To assist you in making responsible decisions about your use of social media, we have established these guidelines for the appropriate use of social media. This policy covers all content and any form of harassment – from unkind words to unwanted romantic advances to hate speech to bullying – by any GGA.

Social media includes all means of communication or posting information or content of any sort on the internet, including to your own or someone else’s web blog, journal or diary, personal website, social networking or affinity web site, web bulletin board or chat room, whether or not associated or affiliated with the Foundation, as well as any other form of electronic communication. Ultimately, you are solely responsible for what you post online. Before creating online content, consider some of the risks and rewards that are involved. Keep in mind that any of your conduct that adversely affects the Foundation, your fellow associates or otherwise adversely affects members may result in loss of your GGA designation.

Global Goodwill Ambassadors Foundation is a non-political, non-biased foundation and believes all people are equal regardless of their race, color, religious beliefs, gender, sexual orientation, geographical residence, socio-economic status or creed.

 

 As an ambassador and someone required to adhere to the rules of personal decorum and ethics, as a GGA you are not permitted, allowed, authorized, admissible, nor is it condoned to talk to, continue chats, send messages, pictures or links, that includes, involves or incites lewd and lascivious behaviors.
 

2. Definition

Harassment can take many forms. It may be but is not limited to the following: words, signs, jokes, pranks, intimidation, physical contact, or violence. Harassment does not have to be sexual in nature. Sexual harassment may include unwelcome sexual advances; requests for sexual favors, pictures; or other verbal or physical contact of a sexual nature when such conduct creates an intimidating environment, either implicitly or explicitly. It is not the intent of the behavior by the offender that determines if harassment has occurred by whether the behavior is welcome by the receiver.

Always be fair and courteous to everyone and do not post video, audio or text that can reasonably be viewed as malicious, obscene, threatening or intimidating, that disparage others or that might constitute harassment or bullying. Examples of such conduct might include offensive posts meant to intentionally harm someone’s reputation or posts that could contribute to a hostile work environment on the basis of race, sex, disability, religion.

*Do not use the Foundation logo or create a link on your website to our website without permission from Lisa Jones, President, and COO.
