Thanks for visiting Springster! We are Girl Effect and we run Springster. We are a charity, based in England, and we work to empower girls like you. Our address and other information can be found at the bottom of these rules.

Please make sure you read and follow these rules. They aren’t the kind of rules to stop you from having fun - they are here to make sure everyone is safe and using Springster the right way!

Feel free to get in touch with us with any questions or comments by emailing springster@girleffect.org. We love hearing from you!

THE RULES

We may also change Springster, including temporarily shutting it down, in order to improve your experience. We will do our best to notify you in advance, but this may not always be possible.

2). Springster is intended for people between the ages of 13 – 24. If you are under the age of 13, please do not use Springster, as it will not be appropriate for you. If you are under the age of 16, please make sure you check with your parent or guardian first before using Springster.

4). There may be information about health available on Springster. This information is not a substitute for medical advice. If you have any specific questions or concerns about your health, please see a doctor or other healthcare professional.

5). Springster is a community, which means that as well as the content we make available on Springster, you may provide your own content. This can include comments, blogs, tweets, podcasts, chats and audio-visual files. Before you give us content, please make sure:

  • You are happy to share the content with Girl Effect and the other users of Springster. This is particularly important if the information is personal;

7). If you sign-up as a member (or “Springster” as we like to call you!), you will have a login and password. Keep this information secret as you do not want anyone else to log into Springster and pretend to be you! We expect you to be responsible for the activity of your membership.

We do this in order to better understand how you use the site, and to provide more useful content to you (and other users of Springster).
