The Park Community Guidelines

Effective Date: May 8, 2024

These terms set forth our legal obligations to each other. They apply to your use of our services.

When we say “CCAI,” “we,” “us,” and “our” in these terms, we mean CCAI, The Park, its subsidiaries, and its related programs.

When we say “services” in these terms, we mean CCAI’s services, websites, and other products.

When we say “you” or “your,” we mean you. If you’re accessing our services on behalf of a legal entity (like your employer), you agree that you have the authority to bind that entity to these terms, and “you” and “your” will refer to that entity.

The Park is committed to providing accessible adoption engagement opportunities and effective support systems for the adoption community. Our mission is to provide lifelong resources that help empower and nurture adopted individuals and their families to grow and thrive. Our Community Guidelines ensure everyone can express themselves and find community — but not at the expense of anyone else.

These Guidelines explain what isn’t allowed in our community. Everyone using our services must follow these rules, and they apply to all parts of our programming, including any in-person programs, and online content.

Together with our Terms of Service and Privacy Policy, these rules make this connection space possible, and they matter deeply to us. If you believe others aren’t following these policies, please let us know by reporting it to us via email at or

Respect Your Peers

1. Do not promote, coordinate, or engage in harassment. We do not allow any type of harassing behavior, including sustained bullying, sexual harassment, ban or block evasion, or creating groups/forums/group messages for the purpose of harassment. 

2. Do not threaten to harm another individual or group of people. This includes direct, indirect, and suggestive threats, in-person or online.

3. Do not share or threaten to share the personally identifiable information of an individual without consent. This includes providing services that facilitate doxxing, such as buying or selling doxxes or compiling doxxes for others.

4. Do not use hate speech or engage in other hateful conduct. This includes the use of hate symbols, imagery, and claims that deny the history of mass human atrocities. 

We consider hate speech to be any form of expression that either attacks other people or promotes hatred or violence against them based on their protected characteristics. 

5. Do not organize, promote, or support violent extremism. This also includes coordinating violent acts; glorifying or promoting violence or the perpetrators of violent acts; and promoting conspiracy theories that could encourage or incite violence against others. 

6. Do not solicit, share, or make any attempt to distribute content that depicts, promotes, or attempts to normalize sexual abuse. Also, do not post content or engage in conduct that in any way sexualizes any individual or entity. This includes real as well as manipulated media, animation, and any type of digital creation (including AI-generated media).

We report child sexual abuse material and grooming to the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children, which may subsequently work with local law enforcement. 

11. Do not share content that glorifies, promotes, or normalizes suicide or other acts of physical self-harm. Self-harm acts or threats used as a form of emotional manipulation or coercion are also prohibited.

12. Do not share real media depicting gore, excessive violence, or animal harm, especially with the intention to harass or shock others. 

Respect CCAI & The Park

13. Do not engage with our service in an inauthentic way. This includes creating fake accounts, misleading users with false information, or misrepresenting any entity in any way. Content that is false, misleading, and can lead to significant risk of physical or societal harm has no place at The Park. We may remove content if we reasonably believe its spread could result in damage to physical infrastructure, injury of others, obstruction of participation in civic processes, or the endangerment of public health. 

14. Do not evade permanent The Park enforcement actions. This includes creating new or using existing accounts, or registering for future events after being removed or expelled for violating our community rules. 

15. Do not engage in activities that could damage or compromise the security of an account, network, or system. This includes using deceptive techniques to trick others into revealing sensitive information (phishing), using malicious software (malware), and flooding a target with traffic in order to make a resource unavailable (denial-of-service attacks). 

16. Do not use or attempt to use our services to promote, coordinate, or execute financial scams. A financial scam is any intentionally deceptive act taken with the intent to receive an illegal, unethical, or otherwise dishonest gain. 

17. Do not engage in activities that fraudulently generate a profit at the expense of others. This includes facilitating, providing instructions for, and participating in fraud. We do not allow coordinated efforts to defraud businesses, price gouging, forgery, money laundering, counterfeit goods, or tools that facilitate illegal behavior. 

18. Do not submit false, misleading, or abusive reports or requests to The Park’s support teams. A report or request will be considered false or misleading if it contains demonstrably untrue information submitted with the intent to manipulate staff into taking a desired action. 

Follow the Law

19. Do not share content that violates anyone’s intellectual property or other rights. 

20. Do not organize, promote, or engage in the selling or facilitation of sales of regulated or potentially dangerous goods. Regulated goods have laws in place that restrict the purchase, sale, trade, or ownership of the goods. Dangerous goods have a reasonable potential to cause real-world, physical harm to individuals. 

21. Do not organize, promote, or engage in any other illegal activity, such as human trafficking or sexual solicitation. 

If you see any behavior, content, or activity that violates these Guidelines, our Terms of Service, or our other policies, please report it to us immediately. 

These Guidelines will continue to evolve over time. This means we may take action against an account, content, or user that violates the spirit of these Guidelines when we encounter a new threat or harm that is not explicitly covered in the current version.

We will always make our best effort to notify you when we update these Guidelines, but it is up to you to follow the spirit of them: Keep The Park safe and welcoming and help us maintain our quality adoption community resources. Thank you for doing your part.‍
