Your purchase may be subject to foreign exchange fees or differences in prices based on location (e.g. exchange rates).
If you purchase a subscription, your payment instrument of choice automatically will be charged at the start of each subscription period for the fees and taxes applicable to that period. To avoid future charges, remember to cancel your subscription before the renewal date! This can be done in a few clicks through your account dashboard.
Your purchases of Services are subject to betoobe’s refund policy.

Please find the details of the current compensation plan here. If the modalities of the compensation plan are modified, all Members will be notified prior to the plan’s update on the platform’s website by a general email.
3.2 Your content
You own the content that you submit or post to the Services. Therefore, you alone are liable for your content that will have to comply with all applicable laws, including regulations about non-discrimination, anti-racism, privacy and intellectual property.

These rights are limited in the following ways:
You can end this license for specific content by deleting such content from the Services, or generally by closing your account, except (a) to the extent you shared it with others as part of the Service and they copied, re-shared it or stored it and (b) for the reasonable time it takes to remove from backup and other systems.
We will get your consent if we want to give others the right to publish your content beyond the Services. However, if you choose to share your post as “public”, we will enable a feature that allows other Members to embed that public post onto third-party services, and we enable search engines to make that public content findable though their services.
Exceptionally, we may find it necessary for the purpose of providing our Services to edit and make format changes to your content (such as translating it, modifying the size, layout or file type or removing metadata), but we will not modify the meaning of your expression.

Third-party apps and sites have their own legal terms and privacy policies, and you may be giving others permission to use your information in ways we would not. betoobe is not responsible for these other sites and apps and you should use these at your own risk.

Profile You have choices about the information on your profile, such as your education, work experience, skills, photo, city or area and endorsements. You donot have to provide additional information on your profile; however, profile information helps you to get more from our Services, including helping business opportunities find you. It’s your choice whether to include sensitive information on your profile and to make that sensitive information public. Please do not post or add personal data to your profile that you would not want to be publicly available.
Posting and Uploading We collect personal data from you when you provide, post or upload it to our Services, such as when you fill out a form, (e.g., with demographic data or rate), respond to a survey, or submit a resume. If you opt to import your address book, we receive your contacts (including contact information your service provider(s) or app automatically added to your address book when you communicated with addresses or numbers not already in your list).
If you sync your contacts or calendars with our Services, we will collect your address book and calendar meeting information to keep growing your network by suggesting connections for you and others, and by providing information about them, e.g. times, places, attendees and contacts.
You donot have to post or upload personal data; though if you donot, it may limit your ability to grow and engage with your network over our Services.

Unless you opt-out, we collect public information about you, such as professional-related news and accomplishments (e.g., speaking at conferences, patents granted, professional recognition, projects) and make it available as part of our Services (e.g. suggestions for your profile, or notifications of mentions in the news).
Contact and Calendar Information We receive personal data (including contact information) about you when others import or sync their contacts or calendar with our Services, associate their contacts with Member profiles, or send messages using our Services (including invites or connection requests).

We use log-ins, cookies, device information and internet protocol (“IP”) addresses to identify you and log your use.
4.1 Cookies, web beacons and similar technology
4.2 Your device and location
It is inevitable due to the functioning of the World Wide Web that whenever you visit or leave our Services (including our plugins or cookies or similar technology on the sites of others), we receive the URL of both the site you came from and the one you go to next.
For the same reason, we get information about your IP address, proxy server, operating system, web browser and add-ons, device identifier and features, and/or ISP or your mobile carrier.
We collect information about you when you send, receive, or engage with messages in connection with our Services. For example, if you get a connection request, we track whether you have acted on it and will send you reminders. We also use automatic scanning technology on messages.
5. How we use your data
How we use your personal data will depend on which Services you use, how you use those Services and the choices you make in your settings. We use the data that we have about you to provide and personalize, including with the help of automated systems and inferences we make, our Services (including ads) so that they can be more relevant and useful to you and others.
We use your data to execute the contract between you and betoobe.
Be connected Our Services allow you to stay in touch and up to date with peers, partners, clients, and other professional contacts. To do so, you will “connect” with the professionals who you choose, and who also wish to “connect” with you. Subject to your settings, when you connect with other Members, you will be able to search each others’ connections in order to exchange professional opportunities.
We will use data about you (such as your profile, profiles you have viewed or data provided through address book uploads or partner integrations) to help others find your profile, suggest connections for you and others (e.g. Members who share your contacts or job experiences) and enable you to invite others to become a Member and connect with you. You can also opt-in to allow us to use your precise location or proximity to others for certain tasks (e.g. to suggest other nearby Members for you to connect with, calculate the commute to a new job, or notify your connections that you are or will be at a professional event).
It is your free choice whether to invite someone to our Services, send a connection request, or allow another Member to become your connection. When you invite someone to connect with you, your invitation will include your name, photo, network and contact information. We will send invitation reminders to the person you invited. You can choose whether to share your own list of connections with your connections.
Visitors have choices about how we use their data.
Be informed Our Services allow you to stay informed about news, events and ideas regarding professional topics you care about, and from professionals you respect. Our Services also allow you to improve your professional skills or learn new ones. We use the data we have about you (e.g., data you provide, data we collect from your engagement with our Services and inferences we make from the data we have about you), to recommend relevant content and conversations on our Services, suggest skills you may have to add to your profile and skills that you might need to pursue your next opportunity. So, if you let us know that you are interested in a new skill, we will use this information to personalize content in your feed, suggest that you follow certain members on our site, or watch related learning content to help you towards that new skill. We use your content, activity and other data, including your name and picture, to provide notices to your network and others. For example, subject to your settings, we may notify others that you have updated your profile, posted a blog, took a social action, made new connections or were mentioned in the news.
Be productive Our Services allow you to collaborate with peers, search for potential clients, customers, partners and others to do business with. Our Services allow you to communicate with other Members and schedule and prepare meetings with them. If you choose so, we scan messages to provide “bots” or similar tools that facilitate tasks such as scheduling meetings, drafting responses, summarizing messages or recommending next steps.
We will contact you through email, mobile phone, notices posted on our websites or apps, messages to your betoobe inbox, and other ways through our Services, including text messages and push notifications. We will send you messages about the availability of our Services, security, or other service-related issues. We also send messages about how to use the Services, network updates, reminders, job suggestions and promotional messages from us and our partners. You may change your communication preferences at any time. Please be aware that you cannot opt-out of receiving service messages from us, including security and legal notices.
We also enable communications between you and others through our Services, including for example invitations, groups and messages between connections.
We target (and measure the performance of) ads to Members directly using the following data, whether separately or combined:
Data from advertising technologies like web beacons, pixels, ad tags, cookies, and device identifiers;
Member-provided information (e.g., profile, contact information, title and industry);
Data from your use of our Services (e.g., search history, feed, content you read, who you follow or is following you, connections, groups participation, page visits, videos you watch, clicking on an ad, etc.);
Information from advertising partners and publishers; and
Information inferred from data described above (e.g., using job titles from a profile to infer industry, seniority, and compensation bracket; using graduation dates to infer age or using first names or pronoun usage to infer gender).
We will show you ads called “sponsored content” which look like non-sponsored content, except that they are labelled “ads” or “sponsored.” If you take an action (such as like, comment or share) on these ads, your action is associated with your name and viewable by others, including the advertiser. Subject to your settings, if you take a social action on the betoobe Services, that action may be mentioned with related ads.
Info to Ad Providers We do not share your personal data with any third-party advertisers or ad networks for their advertising except for: (i) anonymised data; (ii) with your separate permission (e.g., lead generation form) or (iii) data already visible to any users of the Services (e.g. profile). However, if you view or click on an ad on or off our site or apps, the ad provider will get a signal that someone visited the page that displayed the ad, and they may through the use of mechanisms such as cookies determine it is you. Advertising partners can associate personal data collected by the advertiser directly from you with our cookies and similar technologies.
We use data and content about Members for invitations and communications from betoobe promoting membership and network growth, engagement and our Services.
5.5 Developing Services and Research
Service Development We use data, including public feedback, to conduct research and development for the further development of our Services in order to provide you and others with a better, more intuitive and personalized experience, drive membership growth and engagement on our Services, and help connect professionals to each other and to economic opportunity.
Surveys Polls and surveys are conducted by us and others through our Services. You have no obligation to respond to polls or surveys, and you have choices about the information you provide. You may opt-out of survey invitations.
5.6 Customer Support
We use the data (which can include your communications) to investigate, respond to and resolve complaints and Service issues (e.g., bugs).
5.7 Aggregate Insights
We use your data to produce and share aggregated and anonymised insights that do not identify you. For example, we may use your data to generate statistics about our members, their profession or industry, to calculate ad impressions served or clicked on, or to publish visitor demographics for a Service or demographic workforce insight.
5.8 Security and Investigations
6 How We Share Information
6.1 Our Services
Profile Your profile is fully visible to all Members and customers of our Services.Your settings, degree of connection with the viewing Member, the subscriptions they may have, their usage of our Services, access channels and search types (e.g., by name or by keyword) impact the availability of your profile and whether they can view certain fields in your profile.
Posts, Likes, Follows, Comments, Messages Our Services allow viewing and sharing information including through posts, likes, follows and comments.
When you share an article or a post (e.g., an update, image, video or article) publicly it can be viewed by everyone and re-shared anywhere (subject to your settings). Memberswill be able to find and see your publicly-shared content, including your name (and photo if you have provided one).
In a group, posts are visible to others in the group. Your membership in groups is public and part of your profile, but you can change visibility in your settings.
Any information you share through companies’ or other organizations’ pages on our Services will be viewable by it and others who visit those pages.
When you follow a person or organization, you are visible to others and that “page owner” as a follower.
We let senders know when you act on their message, subject to your settings where applicable.
When you like or re-share or comment on another’s content (including ads), others will be able to view these “social actions” and associate it with you (e.g., your name, profile and photo if you provided it).
6.2 Communication archival
Some Members need, for legal or professional compliance, to archive their communications and social media activity, and will use services of others to provide these archival services. We enable archiving of messages by those Members outside of our Services. For example, a financial advisor needs to archive communications with her clients through our Services in order to maintain her professional financial advisor license.
6.3 Related Services
6.4 Service Providers
We use others to help us provide our Services (e.g., maintenance, analysis, audit, payments, fraud detection, marketing and development). They will have access to your information as reasonably necessary to perform these tasks on our behalf and are forbidden to disclose or use it for other purposes.
6.5 Legal disclosures
It is possible that we will need to disclose information about you when required by lawor legal process or if we have a good faith belief that disclosure is reasonably necessary to (1) investigate, prevent, or take action regarding suspected or actual illegal activities or to assist government enforcement agencies; (2) enforce our agreements with you, (3) investigate and defend ourselves against any third-party claims or allegations, (4) protect the security or integrity of our Service (such as by sharing with companies facing similar threats); or (5) exercise or protect the rights and safety of betoobe, our Members, personnel, or others. We will notify Members about legal demands for their personal data when appropriate in our judgment, unless prohibited by law or court order or when the request is an emergency. We may dispute such demands when we believe, in our discretion, that the requests are overbroad, vague or lack proper authority, but we cannot guarantee challenging every demand.
6.6 Change in control or sale
7. Your choices & obligations

In some case we choose to retain certain information in an anonymised form.

We will retain anonymised information after your account has been closed.
