PTO Sexual Conduct Policy
 
Sexual Misconduct, Sexual Harassment and Harassment at PTO

It is the policy of Prison Talk Online (PTO) that sexual misconduct, sexual harassment, or harassment in any form will not be tolerated. Sexual misconduct, sexual harassment and harassment include: unwelcome sexual advances (verbal, written or implied), requests for sexual favors, suggestive talk, name calling, discriminatory or derogatory remarks, and other verbal, written or implied abuse of any sexual or other nature. The guidelines contained within this page will be fully enforced by the site administration or any site moderator associated with PTO. Any violation or bending of these rules is grounds for immediate termination from the Prison Talk Online community and all related PTO sites. PTO has a zero tolerance policy in respect to harassment of any kind.

The primary goal of this community is Prisoner & Family support, then information, assistance and so on. What this community IS NOT about is dating or matchmaking. The great majority of members at PTO have loved ones in prison. Most of the PTO members are involved in some sort of relationship with an inmate – family, friend, spouse or significant other. Some of our members however do not have a loved one in prison but are here in support.
This PTO policy extends from apparent members on the PTO site, to the inmate(s) that they represent through their membership at PTO. With this in mind, no approach and/or contact of any kind to an inmate supported by a PTO member will be tolerated without the express permission of the PTO member. No contact of a harassing nature to any inmate attached to PTO will be tolerated even if consent was given for contact.

PTO also lists names and addresses of inmates who are requesting Pen Pals. All policy regarding sexual misconduct, sexual harassment or harassment will be fully enforced when contacting any inmate listed on this site requesting a pen pal.
PTO is a community that is focused on support. Many of our members have worked together, and supported each other through very hard times. Many close personal relationships have developed through an association at PTO. PTO has been a catalyst to relationships beginning between members that do not have a direct tie to the prison system or a loved one in the prison system. PTO acknowledges and accepts these relationships where the intent was not to intercept, or destroy an existing relationship between two people. Caution and judgment must be exercised here.


Behavior that is NOT acceptable and may result in termination of your PTO account:

- Contacting a PTO member via email or Private Message offering your age, sex, location (a/s/l) etc.

- Soliciting PTO members or making inquiries about them via PTO’s Private Message system or email.

- Stalking a PTO member while online at PTO - Following the member from thread to thread & post to post.

- Making any posts or comments that are explicit or implied of a sexual nature or connotation.

- Making any posts or comments that are explicit or implied, that are abusive, derogatory, discriminatory, or otherwise of a harassing nature or connotation.

- CONTACTING any inmate associated with PTO without the knowledge, permission or request of the PTO member. If permission or a request for contact is apparent, then the contact will be expressly the content of the request and not of an abusive, sexual, or harassing nature.
For example, requests are sometimes made for holiday or birthday cards or letters of support and encouragement. These requests are not an invitation to take an ulterior motive when making the contact.

- Posting of sexually explicit materials on the PTO site is not permitted.

Any PTO member who feels that he/she is a victim of sexual misconduct, sexual harassment, or harassment of any kind should immediately bring the matter to the attention of the PTO Site Administrator or a PTO Moderator. Please do not take the issue to the open forums of PTO. PTO will immediately investigate all allegations of harassment in a confidential manner and take appropriate corrective action if warranted.

Please assist us in keeping PTO a safe and secure community for our members.
