Ethelo Decisions Inc.
Contact us at email@example.com
We are Ethelo Decisions Inc. (“we”, “us”, “our” or “Ethelo”). We operate this online consultation platform (the “Platform”) to provide Participant engagement and decision optimization services (“Services”), each instance of which is called a “Decision” for brevity.
“Clients” are the people or organizations who purchase our Services to create Decisions. Clients invite people to participate in those Decisions (“Participants”). Both Clients and Participants are referred to generally as “Users”.
Participants can be specifically invited and authenticated or, they may be publically and openly invited to access the Decision through a hyperlink. Participants may participate in Decisions from many different Clients, provided they have been invited or provided public access to that Decision. Participants maintain their own profiles with Ethelo, independently of the Clients who invite them or other public Decisions.
Clients can configure Decisions by using Ethelo consulting Services, or through third party “Resellers” authorized by Ethelo to sell and support Decisions for Clients, or by self-configuring the administration panel directly.

Sharing choices may be made available to Participants within each Decision, or as a setting they may select within their account. The Participant acknowledges that sharing Vote Information with any group that includes social network links (Google, Facebook, Twitter, etc.) releases their Vote Information to other individuals that may be outside and beyond the group of Decision Users.
2.
