Our Privacy Policy explains how we treat information you provide to us through our Services, and our Terms govern your use of the Services. Our Terms and Privacy Policy apply to both trained student supporters with registered accounts (each, a “**Peer Supporter**”), clients of Lean On Me’s Services (“**Clients**”) and any casual visitor to our Services who is not a Peer Supporter or Client (“**Site Visitors**”; and, together with Peer Supporters and Clients, “**Users**”). Please read this document carefully before you access or use our Services. By accessing the services, you agree to be bound by the Terms. **1.

Our Services: Overview.** Lean On Me provides a text messaging service that creates texting networks of support across university campuses by anonymously matching Clients with Peer Supporters. The messaging service is not intended to replace emergency hotlines and sends out a standardized message referring a Client to other support organizations if the matter is identified by the Peer Supporter as an emergency.
