Welcome to the terms of use for the Networky website (the “Site”). These are our rules if you want to use the Site. If you register to use Networky, you agree to follow these rules. 

1. What is Networky? 

Networky is a messaging service that helps organisations and people build and strengthen connections and relationships. Each organisation that uses Networky will have access to the messaging platform and will be able to message individuals in other organisations. 

2. Your personal information 

When you register to use Networky, or when an organisation has registered you, we will collect certain personal information about you in order to implement the messaging service, and to measure how well the messaging service is working. Your organisation may also be involved in a study to evaluate the effectiveness of Networky on helping to build and strengthen relationships, in which case, your information, including the message content, will be used for the purposes of the study. Please refer to the privacy notice which can be found on your Networky chat page. You will have been provided with a direct link to your chat page by email or by text.

We may change these rules at any time but if we do we will publish any changes on the Site. Please read and check that you are happy with any changes to the rules.
