  • When registering, you can see who the community belongs to by means of the “Powered by” <naam van de organisatie”. In geval van communities van derden staat hier de naam van de derde.
  • Joinby can also set up and manage communities in its own name, indicated as “Powered by Joinby”

  • The third party may determine that access to his/her community is subject to a fee.
  • The third determines who can access the community. This is indicated when registering. Communities can be open or closed.
  • If the community is closed, it is not allowed to (try to) participate in a community where you are not wanted.
  • Third parties are themselves responsible for the management (support, removing members, etc.) of their own community, unless expressly indicated and agreed otherwise.
  • The student portal is an example of a third-party community.

Within a community

  • Within a community, 'clubs/groups' and 'activities' can be started by the administrator around a theme, activity or area of interest.
  • Administrators may determine membership criteria for their own clubs, but these rules must never conflict with Joinby's terms of service and/or Dutch law.
  • Members have an account and can join the clubs open to them. Members are responsible for their own well-being.
  • Administrators are entitled to charge an amount for participation in clubs and/or activities, provided they clearly indicate this in advance
  • Joinby aims to bring people in the real world closer together. Joinby has no influence on the situations on site and therefore does not accept any form of responsibility associated with the use of the Platform. Good counselor is your common sense and judgment of a situation.

Your content and that of others

  • As an administrator, you are responsible for all content shared in your club. This applies to chat traffic, event information and information shared by others.
