Confidentiality Agreement:

As a member of the online mental health community facilitated by OOVI Inc., I understand and agree to the following terms regarding confidentiality within the community room and group sessions:

  1. I recognize that the group sessions and the online community room aim to create a safe and stress-free environment for open sharing and discussions. This dedicated space, fostered by the commitment of OOVI Inc., is crucial for the collective well-being and growth of each participant. It is with a deep appreciation for this atmosphere that I undertake to respect the privacy of every individual involved, ensuring that their vulnerability is met with unwavering confidentiality.

  2. I commit to maintaining the confidentiality of all information shared during the group sessions and within the online community room, including but not limited to opinions, emotions, and personal experiences of other members. I acknowledge the importance of safeguarding the narratives and struggles that are shared within this trusted space, recognizing the power of confidentiality in building trust and fostering a sense of belonging. By upholding this commitment, I affirm my dedication to creating an environment where every participant feels comfortable and secure in sharing their experiences without fear of judgment or exposure.

  3. I will not disclose or discuss any information shared by other members within or outside the online community room, including on social media or other digital platforms. I fully comprehend the sensitive nature of the topics discussed within the community room and during the group sessions and the potential impact that a breach of confidentiality could have on the emotional well-being of each participant. I undertake to be mindful of the trust placed in me and to refrain from any action that could compromise the sanctity of the shared space.

  4. I will not use any means, including screenshots or any evidence-grabbing tools, to capture or retain any shared information from the group sessions or within the online community room. I acknowledge that technology poses a potential threat to the privacy and security of the group sessions and the online community room, and therefore, I will exercise caution and restraint in the use of any digital tools that could compromise the confidentiality of the discussions. By refraining from any form of data capture, I aim to ensure the protection and integrity of the shared experiences and maintain the trust that is fundamental to the success of the community.

  5. I understand that breaching confidentiality may result in my dismissal from current and future group sessions and may have legal consequences. I am aware of the implications of violating the confidentiality agreement and the impact it could have on my participation in future sessions and within the online community room. I acknowledge that breaching confidentiality not only undermines the trust within the community but also has legal ramifications that could result in severe consequences. By acknowledging these potential repercussions, I affirm my commitment to upholding the confidentiality standards set forth in this agreement, demonstrating my respect for the well-being and privacy of my fellow community members.

  6. I acknowledge that adhering to these confidentiality standards is vital to fostering a trusting and supportive environment for all participants in the group sessions and within the online community room.

  7. I affirm my commitment to upholding the confidentiality of the group sessions and the online community room and the shared information within them.
