From the beginning of the world until the end of the world, the volunteer organizers, event hosts, members, guests, etc of meetup.com/We-Enjoy-English, The New York City English Language Group, stand outside of any type of problem that can be caused by your inattentiveness and your own decision in –but not limited to: providing your confidential information to unscrupulous individuals online or offline; lending money or personal properties; responding to private invitations to meet in secluded venues, hotels, motels, apartments; accepting car rides, giving your physical address (work, school, home...), etc.
The organizers do not hold any power to conduct investigations, confront an alleged offender, offer protection to an aggrieved party, or even dissuade someone from contacting the established authorities. They cannot interfere with the work of the law enforcement officers; doing so could subject them to arrest and emprisonment.
You clearly understand the risks associated with the regular use of the Internet. Therefore, ipso facto of deciding to join ANY web-based entity, you indicate that you fully agree to cope with the risks of financial and property losses or the danger of physical harm resulting from your unilateral decision to voluntarily expose your privacy to everyone.
We neither take charges, nor accept to become involved with any sort of legal, financial, medical or whatsoever ramifications.
You need to take care of your personal safety and possessions. ONLY YOU CAN do this best!
Always feel free to contact the New York Police Department (NYPD) and different authorities regardless of your citizenship or immigration status within the United States of America.
Visit your local police precinct.
911 is for emergency.
Priority of law enforcement agencies
By law we must fully cooperate with the NYPD, the offices of the District Attorneys and all other U.S. law enforcement officials who present their proper bona-fide identification document or badge and a valid court warrant duly signed by a judge or magistrate.
Do not become a victim.
Report all criminal activities.
Dial 911 in emergency circumstances.
PROTECT YOUR PERSONAL PROPERTIES
I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
