Revision: Jan 12, 2023
Welcome to Yolobe ("Yolobe", “YolBe”, "we", "us" or "our"). This policy describes the information we, Yolobe Inc., collect or process to provide to YolBe (our web and app platform).
Yolobe is a social software platform that connects users to resources to spur goal achievement, learning new things, and generally to provide more growth opportunities.
Yolobe is a conduit for communicating opportunities (events, meet-ups, interesting talks, jobs, etc.) to our users from people, organizations and employers in the community or at the school. Over time this will evolve into a broad ecosystem of resources, support, and interaction where Yolobe acts as a hub connecting our users to the best resources to make their lives better, our motto.
Your participation with our service will help us better understand how to cultivate and grow the service to meet our overall mission.
Our Policy applies to all visitors, users, and others who access the Service (collectively "Users").

This information allows us to help you or others be "found" on Yolobe and send your relevant opportunities. We will also may use this information to communicate with you, or help others contact you after you have provided consent.

Note that you may not opt out of Service-related communications.

Anyone who violates these standards will be removed immediately from the service. Users may report any objectionable content and behaviors to firstname.lastname@example.org and our customer service will review and take the appropriate action.
1c. PERSONAL CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION
When using our Service you can also provide Yolobe with "personal confidential information" about yourself for purposes of determining eligibility for certain restricted resources. This type of information is heavily protected and not displayed publicly, or transferred to any other organization without your consent. Additionally, organizations that Yolobe has partnered with, that you are a member of, may ask your consent to transfer your personal confidential information to Yolobe on your behalf. At any time, you may revoke personal confidential information transfer and storage consent, and remove your information from Yolobe. You will be able to continue using the Yolobe service after revocation, but may lose access to protected or restricted resources.

This information may be shared with Yolobe Partner organizations.
