Community Terms of Use

Effective starting: October 11, 2022

Welcome to the 55 Degrees Community!  The Community is made up of 55 Degrees product users, partners, friends, and employees and serves as a go-to destination for peer-to-peer support and thought leadership on best practices related to getting work done with less stress. We’d love to see everyone learn from each other and build their influence and profile on the 55 Degrees Community.

Participation in the Community is governed by these terms, along with all other agreements and/or terms that you or your company has agreed to with 55 Degrees, including our Privacy Statement, and our Community Guidelines (collectively, the “Terms,”). By participating in the Community or otherwise indicating your agreement to these Terms, you agree to be bound by these Terms, which form an agreement between you and 55 Degrees. If you are participating in the Community on behalf of a company, organization, or other entity, then “you” means that entity, and you are binding that entity to these Terms and represent and warrant that you have all necessary authority to do so. If you do not have the authority or if you do not agree with these Terms, you may not participate in the Community. In addition, you may not participate in the Community if you are under the age of 13.

We may modify these Terms from time to time as described in Section 3 (Changes to Terms).
