I agree to take on the following agreements to access and use the Student Community Hub:
1. Hold other community members as worthy of honor, love, and respect.
2. Be willing to listen to each other without judgment – aim to listen past any reactivity to understand the content.
3. Take responsibility for my state and maintain my clarity with regular processing.
4. Be realistic in what I agree to take on, keep my word, and be honest if I miss the mark.
5. Keep confidential all personal information shared and any matters expressly stated as confidential.
6. Acknowledge and celebrate individual and group contributions.
7. Ask for, give, and receive bold support.*
*Bold Support means I will tell you what I see in you, remembering that truth is data plus compassion. Telling the truth involves risk. Receiving that support as a call to Mastery may also be difficult. We trust the intentions of our hearts and recognize that these growth opportunities may, in fact, be the greatest lesson on offer.

2. Access to the Services
Members will have access to the Services upon the creation of an account. To create an account, personal identification data will be entered through the signup request form and platform activation form. Members agree to provide only accurate and complete information when creating or updating account information.
A Member will create an account either by entering identification data (such as name, surname, and email) and being invited to choose an Identifier, or by logging in with a Single Sign-on (SSO) through an existing Facebook or Google account. Identifiers (login and password or social login used to create the account) are personal and confidential, and Members are solely and entirely responsible for keeping them secret and not disclosing them to any third party in any form and for any reason whatsoever. Identifiers can be modified through a Member’s account, or a new password can be generated by clicking on the link “Reset my password”, available at: moretolife.org/users/password/new.
The Member is solely responsible for the activity that occurs on the Member’s Account. The member is responsible for keeping all Identifiers secure to prevent their use by third parties. The Member is also responsible for any actions or declarations made through the Member’s Account, whether fraudulent or not, and guarantees MTL against any action in this respect. The Member is solely responsible for the improper access, damage, disruption, loss, or theft, and adverse consequences caused by the Member’s breach of the confidentiality of the Identifiers. In case of loss, misappropriation, or unauthorized use of the Member’s password, or if the Member has reason to believe that a person is fraudulently using identification elements of their Member Account, they must immediately inform MTL by email at the following address: [email protected].
Members may not use another’s account without permission. A Member Account may not be shared, transferred, or sold to other parties, nor are they to be used by or made available to any person or entity except the registered Member.
3. Cost of the Services

7. Reporting & Moderation
To ensure the Hub provides the best experience possible for everyone, if a Member sees any inappropriate content, they are requested to use the “Report as offensive” feature found under each post. MTL has no general obligation to monitor Member Content or to investigate whether facts or circumstances are revealing illicit activities. MTL has set up a reporting tool allowing any Member to notify illegal, abusive, and harmful content.
The knowledge of such content is deemed effective when MTL is notified of the following:
- The notification date
- The identity of notifying Member
- The description of the facts in contention (preferably with screen shots of the content)
- The reasons for which the content is deemed offensive.
If a Member Content is reported, MTL reserves the right to withdraw the reported content and/or suspend or terminate the Member Account of the Member having originally published the reported content in the conditions set forth in Section 9 below.
The Hub is a private platform for Students, Staff, Governance, Licensed Facilitators and Trainers of MTL. Please respect the privacy of other students by keeping confidential all personal information found in the Hub. While we ask Members of the Hub to respect the privacy of other Hub Members, please keep in mind that whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information in the Hub – whether in the optional fields for your profile, through email, or in other areas of the Hub – that information can be accessible to other Hub Members and, therefore, could be made public. Do not post or add personal information to your profile or elsewhere in the Hub that you would not want to have publicly available.
By using the Service, Members understand that their personal data, in the meaning of Data Protection Law, may be collected and processed in compliance with the Privacy Statement.
9. Deletion, Suspension or Revocation of Access

MTL may delete inactive accounts after a continuous period of 3 years in which the Member has not used the Hub. The Member will be given 30 days’ notice, allowing the Member to object to such deletion. If no objection is received, the Member will be informed by email of the account deletion.
10. Indemnification & Limitation of Liability
MTL is not responsible for the Member’s device compatibility or the inability of the Member to connect due to any technical problem related to the Internet, or for a failure in the Member's computer facilities and equipment. MTL shall not be responsible for the facilities and equipment of a Member’s system or any problems arising from or related to the Member’s system or caused by the Internet. The Member is responsible for the security of the Member’s system and the security of access to and connection with the Services.
Insofar as it has not been reported in the conditions of Article 10, any document, information, data, or elements available via the Service, including Member Content, are provided without any guarantees, notably that they are comprehensive or accurate.
The Member is solely responsible for all Member Content posted and assumes all risks relating to its use by others and others’ reliance on its accuracy. The Member acknowledges that by publishing any content, this information will become accessible to all the Members on the Hub and that the same information may be published, modified, translated, reproduced in any form, and be accessible, saved, and reproduced by other Members and MTL. Under no circumstances does MTL accept liability for injury arising from reliance on Member Content, its use, or use of a product to which it refers.
MTL does not endorse or accept responsibility for the content or the use of third-party websites provided through the Hub and cannot be held liable for any damage following or in relation with use or the fact of having trusted the content/data/results available on such third-party servers, external sources, or internet sites. If a Member uses third-party sites or content from third-party servers, Members do so solely at the Member’s own risk. Links provided on the Hub do not imply that MTL is affiliated or associated with any linked site.
MTL expressly excludes any liability for events of any kind that may occur during any meeting organized between Members within the use of the Services.
In no case may MTL be held liable for any breach of its contractual obligations resulting from a force majeure event. A Force Majeure Event means any event or circumstance beyond the reasonable control of a party, including act of God, fire, explosion, flood, epidemic, power failure, telecommunication or Internet failure, governmental actions, war or threat of war, acts of terrorism, national emergency, riot, civil disturbance, sabotage, labor disputes, strikes, or any other events or circumstances whether similar or dissimilar to any of the foregoing.

Personal information collected within the European Economic Area (“EEA”) may be transferred to countries outside of the EEA for the purposes described in this Privacy Statement. For example, if a Member who resides outside the EEA uses the Directory search function to find you and views the personal information in your profile, your personal information will, in effect, be transferred outside of the EEA.

You have control over this access through the privacy settings in your profile. Click on the edit icon or button in any section of the profile to find the privacy settings.
