GoFrendly operates within a set of values that represent our team and community members. Our values concern and guide all interactions taking place in GoFrendly. Our aim is to ensure that we all have common principles and understanding of how the GoFrendly community is operating:
- Positive and friendly: GoFrendly members are nice to each other and keep a positive tone of voice in all communication. Everyone is treated equally with kindness and warmth. Good vibes only!
- Supportive and accepting: We help each other out and understand that each journey is individual. Do good and may the karma be with you!
- Inclusive and diverse: We celebrate and embrace the diversity of both our members and their stories. Respect other people’s beliefs, interests and privacy while on GoFrendly.
- Respectful and human: Remember that you are interacting with real people, not just a screen. Treat others the way you want to be treated: friendly and with respect.
- Honest and true: Be yourself on GoFrendly with your true identity and correct information on who you are. Behave the way you would like to be treated in real life.
Let’s continue to build a friendly, supportive and simply amazing community together. The kind of community that makes your day just a bit better, your life a bit more adventurous and that puts a smile on your face. By living these GoFrendly values and following our community guidelines you can help to maintain this genuine vibe.
In addition to the values above representing how we view our digital community, we also developed a set of rules to specify certain behaviours that have no space on GoFrendly.
In GoFrendly, it is our priority to encourage positive and meaningful connections among our members. Therefore, we expect community members to be responsible, follow these guidelines and help us flag behaviour that violates our guidelines. As a community rooted in kindness, we expect all of our members to respect each other, themselves, and the GoFrendly team. We count on your help!
