Terms of Service
Effective May 20, 2018
We are apreet, Inc, a Delaware corporation, and when we say “us,” this includes our employees, officers, directors, agents and contractors.
We got together because we are fascinated about people. People make and made the difference in our lives. And we value meeting new people and engaging with the ones we know: our family, friends and contacts. We are on a mission to ease meeting people you know while traveling and while at home. We help you planning in advance whom to meet wherever you will go.
Talking to people we haven’t seen for a while broadens our horizons. New ideas and opportunities oftentimes develop at the fringes of our networks. We want to make sure you do not miss any opportunities whether it is for your business or just for the pleasure of seeing an old friend or acquaintance.
