BeMe: Plain Language Privacy Policy

We know that legal jargon is really dull and drier than that mystery rainbow meat sandwich in the cafeteria. But we think it’s important to be upfront and let you know your rights as a member of the BeMe Community and help you understand what information we collect, why we collect it, and how you can update, manage, and delete your information.

Your Use of BeMe

  • When you sign up for BeMe, you agree to our Terms of Service (TOS) and Privacy Policy. We can revise these terms, and we will let you know if we do.
