Disclaimer & Site Policy
Domestic violence/relationship abuse refers to intimate relationships, not child abuse.
Because the vast majority of relationship abuse is committed by men against women in heterosexual relationships, this website sometimes contains the female gender pronoun when referring to the abused person. All of the information on this site is relevant for male victims and for individuals in same-gender relationships. Our goal is to be gender inclusive, including using gender-neutral language and as such we continue to upgrade this site to achieve these goals while continuing to analyze gender as a construct that has implications on gender-based violence in both heterosexual and same-gender relationships.
This website is provided “as is” without any representations or warranties, express or implied. Breaking the Silence Incorporated makes no representations or warranties in relation to this website or the information and materials provided on this website.
Without prejudice to the generality of the foregoing paragraph, Breaking the Silence Inc. does not warrant that:
- this website will be constantly available, or available at all; or
- the information on this website is complete, true, accurate or non-misleading.
Nothing on this website constitutes, or is meant to constitute, advice of any kind. (If you require advice in relation to any [legal, financial or medical] matter you should consult an appropriate professional.)
