The LYC community is made up of individuals who want to be and do better. Our community is designed to help members create wellness experiences and make connections with liked minded people. We suggest that groups, events, and outings focus on creating experiences that add value for members of the community as well as promoting wellness and community.
We recommend that when you are forming a group that you try to meet the basic goals of the LYC mission:
LYC takes a comprehensive approach to wellness, so groups and events should also be comprehensive in nature.
Groups or events must not be misleading, fraudulent, or deceptive in any way.
Groups or Events must not impersonate or falsely represent a brand, entity, or public figure. Where a group or event is being used to express support for or interest in a brand, entity, or public figure, it must make clear in the name or description that it is not an official representation.
Groups, and events must not facilitate or promote online gambling, online real money, games of skill, or online lotteries.
Groups and events must not inaccurately or misleadingly tag content or encourage users to to do the same.
Groups and events must not incentivize people to misuse LYC features or functionality.
If you use LYC to communicate or administer a promotion or event (ex: a contest, sweepstakes, concert), you are responsible for the lawful operation of that promotion or event, including: compliance with applicable rules and regulations governing the promotion or event and all prizes offered (ex: registration and obtaining necessary regulatory approvals).
If you collect content and information directly from group members or users you must make it clear that you (and not LYC) are collecting it, and must provide notice about and obtain user consent for your use of the content and information that you collect. Regardless of how you obtain content and information from group members or users, you are responsible for securing all necessary permissions to reuse their content and information.
Your group, promotion or event must not collect users’ content or information, or otherwise access LYC, using automated means (such as harvesting bots, robots, spiders, or scrapers) without written permission from LYC.
Your group or event cannot use information obtained from a person’s interaction with your group’s call-to-action for any purpose other than to provide the service associated with the call-to-action button. If you want to use this information for any other purpose, first obtain the person’s explicit consent.
Groups or events promoting the private sale of regulated goods or services (including firearms, alcohol, tobacco, or adult products) are prohibited.
You must not accept anything of value to drive traffic to an app or site that engages in traffic arbitrage, or one that contains a disproportionate volume of ads relative to content, or content that is highly sexual, shocking, clickbait, or promotes scams.
Branded groups must obtain the express permission of LYC. A Branded group is a group that is formed by a commercial enterprise.
Your group description must include all necessary disclosures to people using LYC, such as any disclosures needed to indicate nature of content posted by you.
Your group must not promote employment opportunities that involve illegal activity, products, or services.
Your group must not unlawfully discriminate against members or app users based on any protected characteristics, including, but not limited to, race, ethnicity, color, national origin, religion, age, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, family status, disability, medical or genetic condition or any other basis protected under federal, state or local law.
Your group must not promote sexually related activities or conduct. Further adult sexual related products may not be posted or promoted in post or events posted on the app. Groups must not contain content or promote events that promote or facilitate sex trafficking, prostitution, or any other type of sexual exploitation. Groups and events must not promote, post or contain pornography or publicly shared nude or sexual photos. If nudity or sexuality is part of a group’s identity or lifestyle, organizers must keep the group private in order to limit access to this content to members of that group. LYC expects organizers to monitor this content and restrict members to at least the age of 21.
Group administrators or members must not solicit personal identification or financial information from any group member or app user.
Group Events or the like must provide clear and up-front disclosure for any actions or additional costs associated with an event ticket purchase or attendance.
LYC does not support or allow groups and events related to any of the following themes; and groups must not contain content or promote events that could threaten public or personal safety, including:
Groups must not contain content or promote events that contain medical misinformation, including:
Groups must not contain content or promote events that involve regulated services provided by licensed medical or legal professionals. LYC does not validate professional credentials or licenses. However, groups and events focused on group activities promoted by these professionals are allowed.
