We keep our comments in the group strictly on topic;
We all strive to avoid disparaging or offending other group members;
This is a friendly and supportive group with common goals not a debating society;
We are all trying to learn from each other, not score points off each other;
We avoid commenting on current politics that could cause dissension;
Prejudicial remarks of a religious or racial nature are not tolerated;
Discussions are moderated and messages are kept private and not visible to anyone else on Facebook except for the other Kresy-Siberia Group members. The Group Moderators reserve the right to warn, suspend or remove anyone who is unable to respect these rules.
All members are screened for suitability, so we will first ask you to describe your family connection or other interest in Kresy-Siberia. We like to introduce new members to the group by including a photo of you and of some of your wartime family members if possible. This helps us all put faces to the names. We will also ask for your contact details (e-mail, address, phone) so that our group administrators can contact you if needed, though we will never share them with anyone else*.
We invite you to share information with the group and to post photos in the Virtual Museum’s Hall of Memories. We invite you to volunteer to help record Survivor interviews and to work on the Virtual Museum, events or charity administration. To fund all of these activities, we also invite you to make an annual voluntary “Friend” donation of US$40 or more, as you see fit.
* By applying, you agree to the Kresy-Siberia Foundation processing your personal information for the purposes of its statutory activities, in accordance with Article 23 of Poland’s Personal Data Protection Act of 29 August 1997.
