Terms & Conditions

Thanks for visiting HealthyWork.org or the “Site”. We are excited for you to use the Site.

These Terms of Use (the “Terms”) are our policies about how you may use the Site. By using the Site, you are agreeing to these Terms. So please read them carefully. If you have any questions about these terms, please reach out to us at contact@healthywork.org.

HealthyWorkCampaign also has a Privacy Policy and rules for acceptable story submissions, which are contained in the Site’s Frequently Asked Questions page and on our Share Your Story page. You should read these policies carefully, as they also contain important information about the Site, as well as your rights and obligations in using the Site.

While HealthyWorkCampaign grows, we will continue to add features, such as our Healthy Work Survey (for Individuals and for Organizations). Thus, there may be additional terms for some of these features. If these Terms conflict with the additional terms, the additional terms will control.

We may update or modify these Terms from time to time. If you are subscribed to our newsletter, we will let you know when the Terms change and, thus, when you should review them. If you keep using the Site after the Terms change, that means that you agree to any of the changes. The Terms were last updated on November 26, 2018.

These Terms are designed to protect you and the Site’s other users, and to ensure that HealthyWorkCampaign can function in the way it is intended: as a space where individual workers, organizations, and other stakeholders can come together to understand and pursue healthy work in their workplaces. If you violate these Terms, you may lose access to the Site and we may remove any content that you post that violates the Terms . This decision will be made at HealthyWorkCampaign’s sole discretion.

Medical Disclaimer

The contents of the Site, such as text, graphics, images, videos, tools, and other material contained on the website (“Content”), are for informational purposes only and do not constitute medical advice; the Content is not intended to be a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment. Always seek the advice of a physician or other qualified health provider with any questions you may have regarding a medical condition. Never disregard professional medical advice or delay in seeking it because of something you have read on this website.

The Site and the Content are provided on an “as is” basis.” Reliance on any information provided by this website is solely at your own risk.

Common Sense and Good Manners

Please be respectful when interacting with us and our audience on our social media channels, through our submission forms, as well as when relaying your “Working on Empty: Your Work Stories.” Do not resort to personal attacks of any kind. For example, if you are sharing a story about the conduct of a supervisor at your workplace, don’t make disparaging comments about their appearance or upbringing; instead, focus on their conduct in the workplace.

Please use common sense when you post content on the Site. It will be visible to other users and could be shared outside of the Site. It is your responsibility to make sure you do not post anything you don’t want others to see. It is equally important that what you share directly with our team and post online is verifiably true. If you are in a position where you don’t want to share personal details through our Share Your Story form or otherwise, because your safety is at risk, please feel free to withhold all personal identifiers, as your health, safety and overall well-being is our top priority.

Creating Content on HealthyWorkCampaign

If you create or post content to the Site, you must follow the rules listed in this section. HealthyWorkCampaign has the right to remove any content from the website at any time, for any reason, including for violation of any law or these Terms. If you post any content that violates these Terms, or that is inappropriate or in violation of the spirit of the Terms, we may remove it at our sole discretion.

  1. Acceptable Content

    HealthyWorkCampaign is designed to reduce work stressors, improve working conditions, and decrease negative health outcomes of unhealthy work throughout the country. All of the content that you post on the Site should be consistent with this aim. Other uses of the Site are not permitted under these Terms.

    To that end, the Site allows you to create petition campaigns, support the petition campaigns of others, talk with other workers through petition comments, join networks of similar workers, and organize and manage local events. The Site also lets you make your voice heard by participating in online surveys and polling.

  2. Prohibited Content

    First, commercial use of the Site is absolutely prohibited. You cannot use HealthyWorkCampaign as part of any for-profit or business purpose. For instance, you are not permitted to use the Site to advertise any products or services in any way. We will block those attempts immediately.

    HealthyWorkCampaign values respectful dialogues and exchange of ideas. Do not post any content that advocates hate, violence, abuse, threats, or harm against any person, entity or group. Similarly, do not post any content that bullies, harasses, or encourages others to bully or harass, any person entity or group. Any content that is racist, sexist, or otherwise prejudiced towards any person or group is absolutely prohibited. Do not submit to our website or post on our social media channels any content that is vulgar, obscene, or pornographic. (Those social media channels will already stipulate this and more. But it bears repeating.)

    You may not use the Site to promote or encourage illegal, unethical, or unlawful activity. You may also not post content that is defamatory, libelous, or slanderous. Finally, you may not post content that infringes on the rights of any third-party, including copyright or intellectual property rights, that discloses confidential information or trade secrets, or that violates any right or duty you may have under law.

    Keep in mind that this is not a complete list of prohibited content. If we discover user content that is contrary to the spirit of these Terms or is not in line with the aims of this Site, we may remove it at our sole discretion.
