While we want to foster communication and community, this includes the limitation in our Terms of Service on sharing personal contact information prior to entering a contract, so let’s keep the contact on Upwork. You are also responsible for complying with your agreements with your clients on Upwork, so please do not share any confidential or proprietary information at any time. As with any new endeavor, please bear in mind that we are in the beta phase, so improvements, continuing education, and other necessary milestones may be implemented to improve the Groups experience. We appreciate your patience as you experience this journey with us!
