Important Updates to Meetup’s Terms of Service and Privacy Policy

As we make some changes to build a better Meetup and bring more people together around the world, we need to update our Terms of Service and Privacy Policy. We’ve also created a new Cookie Policy and a reorganized Policy Center to make all these documents easier to find.

Key Policy Updates

While you should read Meetup’s updated Terms of Service, Privacy Policy, and related policies in the Policy Center, below is a summary of some key updates:

Terms of Service

  • We added an easy-to-understand overview, section summaries, and practical tips.
  • We updated aspects of how and where you can bring a claim against us, including important information about informal dispute resolution, mandatory arbitration, and a class action waiver.

Privacy Policy

  • We added details about how we collect information about you.
  • We let you know how we use information about you to operate our service, and for other uses, including advertising.
  • We explained how we share information about you with our service providers.
  • We provided more information about your choices related to how we communicate with you and how we use information about you.

Cookie Policy

  • We described how we use cookies and similar technologies.
  • We elaborated on how you may be able to control or opt out of some of these technologies.
