    We request:

    • That you do not post any sensitive, financial, confidential, or proprietary information.
    • That you comment and engage respectfully with other Geneomy members.
    • That you use privacy settings when appropriate.
    • That you do not use Geneomy for business or job postings.
    • That you do not copy and use information or media that is not your own, and that you do not distribute this data to anyone without authorization.
    • That you do not share or distribute illegally obtained files or data using Geneomy.
    • That you do not promote violence or criminal behavior.
    • That you make thoughtful decisions on objectionable content and who it is shared with.
    • That you contact us if someone is in gross negligence of these guidelines.

    Geneomy is meant to be a safe and inclusive place for families to share their Life Events. We do not plan to monitor posts, but we reserve the right to suspend or ban members as needed. We welcome feedback on improving this document and hope to refine it based on the Geneomy community's opinions.
