Code of Conduct Policy | Springboard

This Code of Conduct applies to your participation in, or access to (a) and all corresponding domains, subdomains, web pages and websites associated therewith (the “Site”), (b) courses, workshops, career tracks, or other programs (collectively, “Programs”), and (c) any other content, applications, features, functionality, information and services offered on or through the Site (the foregoing subsections (a), (b), and (c) are collectively referred to herein as the “Services”). This Code of Conduct shall not limit the Terms of Service in any way.

By participating in a Program as a mentor or student, or any other use of the Services, you agree to the following code of conduct. Any violation of the Code of Conduct, in the sole discretion of SlideRule Labs, Inc. (“Springboard”), shall result in the termination of mentor’s or student’s participation in any Program and access and use of the Services without reimbursement.


Neither students nor mentors shall use any medium outside of the Services to initiate communication with the other, unless agreed to by the recipient and approved in advance by Springboard. All communications and content transmitted shall be related to the Program that a mentor or student is a participant of. Mentors and students will not use language, transmit to other students or mentors, or post content that is discriminatory (including without limitation on the basis of race, color, creed, religion, gender, national or ethnic origin, age, handicap, or sexual orientation), threatening, harassing, disrespectful, sexually explicit, unlawful, profane, tortious, defamatory, libelous, deceptive, fraudulent, invasive of another’s privacy, or that amounts to Spam.


Springboard has a zero-tolerance policy on harassment. Harassment includes any unwanted communication unrelated to the Program, or any repeated communication following a request from the recipient or Springboard to cease communicating with the recipient. In addition to removal of a violator from the Program, and a ban of a violator’s access and use of the Services, Springboard reserves the right to forward such matters to law enforcement.


Mentors and students will not share their communications or details about their communications with third parties (excluding Springboard) without the other’s prior express consent.

Mentor-Student Meetings

Springboard does not facilitate in person meetings between mentors and students. Any such meeting is done at each participant’s own risk, and each participant hereby agrees to indemnify and hold harmless Springboard and its officers, directors, employees, and agents for any injury sustained during any in person meeting.

Personal Relationships between Mentors and Students

For the duration of student’s participation in any Program, mentors and students are strictly prohibited from establishing and engaging in any form of personal relationships other than a relationship that is appropriate and strictly within the mentor-student context.
