________________________________

In the spirit of ensuring all are uplifted and honored by our WU Group, we are called to outline our Code of Conduct. Perhaps it goes without saying, or it should, that by being part of this group, you agree to the code details listed below. Period. And we Thank You.

The Code:

1. All posts in this group will be clean, kind and considerate of all who wander in. This is a positive, empowering group and its members stand for what is good and compassionate and caring in the world. The Wellness Universe consistently strives to be a resource to find trusted sources displaying respect, decorum, good taste and information (as well as services, products, tools) that are in line with all types of Wellness. We do not have to like or agree on a personal level with you, and thusly you with each other. Our job (individually as well as a group) is to be supportive, or silent. We will NOT tolerate anything that is intentionally trying to cause discord within this community.

Therefore, the following will not be tolerated:

•Calling-out, demeaning, degrading, or undermining anyone in this group because you don’t agree with their business or any of their personal choices

•Spamming, pornography or graphic material of any sort.

2. Displaying Netiquette: You agree to share content respectfully and will not upload any material that is not your own, as your own – meaning you use the ‘share’ button so that each piece of content that is shared will lead back to the person who created it.

3. Authentic Connection versus Shameless Self Promotion: There is an essential distinction that must be made here. No one likes to be sold; people long to be inspired. Apparent in social media, as demonstrated in life, people will run from the car sales person or retail clerk who accosts them at the door. So too will folks flee and click away from anyone who’s apparent sole purpose is to sell. Authentic Connection is about sharing a part of yourself, your ideas and insights and leaving a person richer. This may or may not lead to a sale, but could lead to a genuine relationship that will build who you are and what you offer long-term.

– As You Uplift, the Higher You Rise – look for opportunities to celebrate others. Not with a reciprocation in mind, just celebrate and link to/share others works. You will set the stage for the service of your life and you cannot help but win. The more you give, the more you receive. Isn’t that easy and pure Awesome?!

4. Understand that ignoring this code will result in a warning and possible removal. Should you be abusive in any way, know that you will be banned and reported immediately.

Thank You for being a part of the this group. We appreciate and value each WU World-Changer and we know you will do the same. By being a WUVIP and a member of this group you are agreeing to the terms of our Code of Conduct.

    Are you prepared for GDPR or even know what it is? It’s a new EU privacy ruling that goes into effect on May 25. If you have email subscribers from the European Union, you may need to update your privacy policy and ask those subscribers to opt-in to your list again. This guide from ActiveCampaign can help you prepare:

    Gloria,

    This is fabulous. Thanks so much. I have been reading about this change but I needed the practical approach about what exactly I needed to do with my sign up page. Great information.

    I also found a Privacy Policy generator on the internet that meets GDPR guideline and CA state privacy guidelines at https://termsfeed.com/privacy-policy/ that seems pretty comprehensive. There are other websites available of course. It is a complicated policy document that should be read and understood thoroughly.

    Thanks again,

    Ariann

    Hi Gloria,

    Thank you so much for posting this very helpful and easy to understand guideline.  I have found that I actually do more and get more responses from social media marketing rather than emails. The analytics of the emails I send show few read them or open them compared to the 60 subscribers that I have.

    As a result of this new law and the way I use and market myself, I’m going to shut down my Email subscriptions.

    Can you tell me if I just a have my website (through wix.com) and stop the Email subscription, is there anything I need to do yet to be compliant with the GDPR law?  I do have a tab on my page that allows people to contact me through email. And I know Wix.com collects analytics on who visits my page, (location, country), how long they stayed on my website and what pages they visited while on my website. With this in consideration, is there a tab that I need to add to my website stating that as a visitor “cookies” will collect this data etc?

    Most of what I’m reading on this GDPR law pertains to Email subscriptions and I don’t hear much on just having a website with blogs and information.

    Thanks so very much for your help! It’s wonderful that you reached out to help with this new law. 🙂

    Good question @susanjwitt.  If you have a tab on your website to collect emails, you’re still going to have to do one of these two things:

    1. Use checkbox custom fields in a form that contacts must check in order to provide consent, or
    2. Create a form that requires confirmation opt-in.

    Even if you don’t plan to email to the contact on a regular basis, you would be wise to follow these procedures just to be on the safe side!

    Here is some information from Wix on how to prepare your site:

    Hope that helps!
