Privacy Policy

When you use Network, you’ll share some information with us. So we want to be upfront about the information we collect, how we use it, whom we share it with, and the controls we give you to access, update, and delete your information.

That’s why we’ve written this Privacy Policy. And it’s why we’ve tried to write it in a way that’s blissfully free of the legalese that often clouds these documents. Of course, if you still have questions about anything in our Privacy Policy, just contact us.

Information we collect

There are two categories of information we collect:

Here’s a little more detail on each of these categories.

Information you choose to give us

When you interact with our services, we collect the information that you choose to share with us. For example, you are required to set up a basic Network account, so we need to collect a few important details about you, such as: your educational institutions email address and a password. To make it easier for others to find you, we may also ask you to provide us with some additional information that will be publicly visible on our services, such as pictures, a name, or other useful identifying information. Other services, such as commerce products, may also require you to provide us with a debit or credit card number and its associated account information.

Of course, you’ll also provide us whatever information you send through our services, such as Posts and what you Write to other users. Keep in mind that the users you Write and send any other content to can always save that content or copy it outside the Site. So, the same common sense that applies to the internet at large applies to Network as well: Don’t Write or share content that you wouldn’t want someone to save or share.

It probably goes without saying, but we’ll say it anyway: When you contact customer support or communicate with us in any other way, we’ll collect whatever information you volunteer.

Information we get when you use our services

When you use our services, we collect information about which of those services you’ve used and how you’ve used them. We might know, for instance, that you saw a specific Post and Wrote to users. Here’s a fuller explanation of the types of information we collect when you use our services:
