It is a condition of membership to the Aussie Egg Donor Bulletin Board that all members must read and abide by the following rules:

No posts from this group may be copied, forwarded or discussed in whole or part to any person not a member of this group without the written permission of the original writer.

No abusing, flaming or defaming other members. The knowledge that individuals will at times have views different to our own and are entiled to do so must be kept foremost in our minds. Ongoing disagreements between members should be brought to the attention of the Moderator OR Adm and settled off group.

Administrators and Moderators of the Bulletin Board can and will delete posts they feel are not suitable.

As this group is partly made of women who have experienced infertility we ask that parents with children are sensitive and compassionate with how they discuss topics relating to their children (example: "Oh, I wish I'd never had my kids" etc). Most donors have children and talking about them in a positive way gives much hope to intended parents in the group, we just ask you to exercise discretion.

There is only one Forum where Intended Parents can place advertisements for donors - "IPs Advertising For A Donor". IPs must have a minimum of 20 posts and have been a member for four weeks before they can post their ad in this section. We do not allow egg donors to advertise anywhere on this Forum.

Intended Parents who reside in Victoria, Australia must have their advertisment authorised by the Minster Of Health, and verification of that authorisation must be included at the bottom of their advertisement.
This particular Forum will be carefully moderated in keeping with the legal requirements of Victorian legislation. Any posts that disregard the legal requirements will be immediately deleted, and continuing unauthorised advertising will result in banning that member from this forum.

It is also an important part of the culture of the AED group that it is up to donors to contact recipients (privately and not via public posts on the board) if they are interested in getting to know them better. We ask that Intended Parents do not approach donors in the group with a view to asking them to donate as this can place a donor in a very awkward and unfair position. Breaking this rule will result in deletion from the group.

The site owners accept no responsiblity, legal or moral, for any agreements concerning Egg Donation, Adoption or Surrogacy that members may enter into through their association with this group. We advise only that legal advice be sought in these matters. This Bulletin Board is for the sole purpose of supporting women in their egg donation journies.

Upon joining the group a member must send an introduction to the group within two days, posted in the 'Introduction' Forum. Members must then post a minimum of once a fortnight to remain a member of the group. Failure to do so will result in deletion. You will be free to rejoin the group at a later date when you are more able to participate more fully in the group. Please remember the members on this Board are sharing sensitive information regarding themselves and families, and it is this reason that lurkers are not welcome.

No self promotion without the permission of the moderators. Promotion will be allowed if relevant to the group.

Remember that although this is a closed group, we cannot be sure of the identity or good faith of our entire membership. All care taken must be your own.

These group rules may be revised and added to from time to time - continued membership of this group is reliant on acceptance of any changes.
