How do I create an account?
Simply click on the Find Your Pod button at the top of the screen. You’ll be prompted for some information to create your account, and then you’ll be taken to our values form. Fill out this form and you’re all set!
Who am I actually being matched with?
You will only be matched with other families or site members that match your quarantine values, zip code, and childrens’ ages. This helps ensure that you’ll match with accessible people with the same quarantine values as you (masks, hand washing, social distancing, etc.)
Why do you need my information?
We only collect a small amount of information about our families, and it’s only used to match you with other families. We may email you about new functionality and when you receive a new match, but otherwise we don’t use your information for any other purpose.
How do I know this is safe?
This is a great question. At the end of the day, PodUp wants to facilitate connections, so people can interact safely. There is no replacement for making sure that you are doing your homework on who you are meeting with. That’s why we enable secure chat, so you can interview your matches and see if you feel comfortable moving forward.
Do you sell any information?
Nope. We don’t sell or use your information for any monetary gain. We are funded through philanthropic channels, and have no need to sell your data to anyone. We will use social channels to provide updates about the site, but do not sell your data to anyone.
Why do I need this?
Humans are experiencing all kinds of dynamics we’ve not had to deal with in our lifetimes – and it feels like we are going it alone. But we also believe that there is a safe way to manage human interactions with other people, as long as actions and behaviors are the same as yours. We’re here to help you find your Pod.
