We care about your safety

One’s desire to have a child is a vulnerable topic that is often associated with many desires and expectations. We would like to sensitize you to be vigilant in our childbearing community despite your great desire to have children:

Familyship is a digital place where many people come together. Most of them have good intentions, probably similar to yours – namely, to fulfill their desire to have children. But even with Familyship there are unfortunately conflicts, disappointments and also people who have other intentions than they pretend.

Should a:e user:in disregard rules, we as operators of Familyship can take action if it can be proven that our General Terms and Conditions are violated. Should a violation of legal regulations occur outside of Familyship, we unfortunately have no recourse. In this case, the injured party must contact the police and have civil or criminal proceedings investigated.

Here are some more hints and safety tips that you should definitely keep in mind while searching through Familyship.


  • Use Familyship’s messaging feature to exchange ideas. Do not give out private communication data (e-mail, cell phone number, etc.) to people you do not know (well).
  • Be cautious about providing personal information such as your address or date of birth, and about providing information about your employer.
  • Send private photos only to people you already know a little better.


  • If you’re meeting someone alone for the first time, arrange to meet in a public place, not an apartment.
  • Inform another person when and where you have a date.
  • Be sure to have your cell phone with you at the meeting.


  • Get to know the person well (even if he is “only” to be a sperm donor) before you make the first attempts to initiate a pregnancy and clarify your expectations for the attempts at procreation and subsequent contact decisively.
  • When you get to know someone better, ask to see his/her ID card at least before the first few attempts to make sure he/she is who he/she says he/she is.
  • Ask to see current health documents before you start your first tests.
  • In the case of sperm donation: clarify the financial aspects (who will bear the travel and, if necessary, accommodation costs).
