Thank you for being here – we hope that you enjoy our technology and our community.
PVLSE is a mobile platform for people of ages 18 and above, for creating activities and interacting in the real-world through in-app events called pvlses (pronounced pulse(s)).
Within the PVLSE platform you will find a community of all kinds of people, from all kinds of places, with all kinds of aspirations. The purpose of PVLSE is to allow this community to connect with others and achieve their goals, whether it be indulging in good food, sharing a skill, starting a business, building more meaningful connections, all of the above or otherwise.
Ultimately, at PVLSE, we expect and encourage you to act with general appreciation and respect for each other, and to look out for each other on your individual and cooperative endeavours. We do not intend to impede upon or disrupt the flow of social interactions & connections, however the safety of our community is paramount – we care about you, so help us to help yourselves and each other.
In the menu above are several guiding principles designed to ensure safe and productive interactions within PVLSE and a smooth operation of the platform.
If you have any questions, queries, concerns, non-understandings of any kind, or would like to discuss anything found in these guidelines or related to using the PVLSE platform, please engage with us privately by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or publicly on any of our social channels – we are happy to listen, respond and discuss, and are continuously looking for ways to improve the safety of our platform and empowerment of our community.
PVLSE is about empowering people to live a truly connected and fulfilling life. As creators and participants of in-app events & outings (pvlses), being welcoming, honest, kind & considerate are core qualities we ask the community to abide by. Nothing below excludes anyone’s actions or behaviours from the Terms of Conduct and in order to stay safe please see our Safety Policy & Tips.
The people you meet through PVLSE are all individuals, with their own goals and reasons for attending pvlses. Respect each other’s differences and mindsets, do not make rash assumptions about a person, and understand that everyone is on their own journey. So be supportive and don’t be afraid to ask for support, lead by example and have fun.
Always look to work together to resolve issues, hurdles and other obstacles. This means actively supporting those who need it, but at times also holding or allowing space for them. Respect your peers and realise the collaborative potential we all have to co-create amazing experiences!
Using PVLSE exposes you to an abundance of opportunities to learn and grow with others. We find that pvlses are best experienced when you are open to growth, and sometimes even willing to step out of your comfort zone. This isn’t to say that you should push yourself to the extremes (unless that is what you want of course).
We all enjoy clean and beautiful environments, whether land, property, equipment or otherwise. So look after the places and the things out of respect for yourself and those who come after you. For the sake of sustainability, leave no trace behind. All of this goes without saying – just don’t leave a mess and fix what you break!
Be kind to each other. PVLSE is a platform for creating meaningful & productive human connections.
We value people’s attention and time. Do not duplicate the same post or post pvlses which conflict with a pvlse you previously created. Advertising on the PVLSE platform without the intent to create and host a pvlse is registered as spam.
Stalking, intimidating, bullying, threatening, or harassing other members is prohibited. Harassment is defined as a pattern of offensive behavior with the purpose of adversely affecting a targeted person or persons. Examples of harassment include making threats, making repeated unwanted contact with a person, and posting personal information of another person. PVLSE reserves the right to take action (see above) on profiles we believe may pose a threat to the present and future members of our community.
Duplicate, fake, and joke profiles are not allowed. The first profile that you create must be you and is the only one that you may have. Our trust network needs everyone to stand by their reputation.
Misrepresenting yourself as someone else is prohibited. This includes representation as an agent, representative, employee, or affiliate of PVLSE.
Don’t engage in, nor encourage illegal activity; don’t violate any applicable laws or regulations.
Using PVLSE in a way that could interfere with other members from fully enjoying the platform or that could impair the functioning of the platform is prohibited. Attempting to circumvent PVLSE systems, or using these systems in a manner which undermines their intent, is prohibited.
Content that we believe, in our sole discretion, falls into any of the following categories is prohibited:
Hate speech, particularly speech that disparages any ethnic, racial, sexual or religious group by stereotypical depiction or is otherwise abusive or inflammatory, including content that contains offensive language or images.
Contains nudity, sexually explicit content or is otherwise obscene, sexually exploitive of minors, pornographic, indecent, lewd, or suggestive.
Contains private or personal information about another person, such as a phone number or address.
Unlawful content or content for which PVLSE has received a court order to remove, or content that infringes on the rights of a third party, including intellectual property, privacy, publicity or contractual rights.
Incites violence or characterizes violence as acceptable, glamorous or desirable.
Contains unsolicited promotions, political campaigning, advertising or solicitations – including content used to promote a business or product – without our prior written consent.
Reporting violations of PVLSE Policies. If you feel another person is violating this policy, use the Flagging or Report tools available next to posts and events.
We want both Hosts and Participants to arrive prepared for their pvlses and leave satisfied. Below are a few tips that we hope will mean you enjoy your activity to the fullest!
Discovering a great PVLSE is no good if you can’t find it!
Research the area in which the event is being held before attending, should it be somewhere you are unfamiliar with. You can always contact hosts for more information on the venue if you are unsure.
Nobody likes getting stuck away from home!
If you are travelling via public transport make sure that services are running as usual and are on time; there are various map apps available that can plot routes should you need to use trains or buses.
Should you be using your own transport make sure you have sufficient fuel etc. and try to have someone on standby able to collect you should anything go wrong with your means of transport (we hope it won’t!). This brings neatly to our next point –
Tell them not to wait up!
Always let someone know your plans to attend an event – This could be a parent, a partner or a friend. You could even bring someone with you to join in the fun!
Trust us, Boxercise will be no fun if you turn up wearing a suit!
Make sure you consider the event you are attending – If it is a PVLSE that includes exercise then ensure you wear appropriate footwear/clothing; should it be an outside event consider bringing an umbrella (just in case!).
PVLSE Hosts will do their best to make participants aware of everything required to take part in their event, but if you are unsure do not be afraid to reach out and ask them!
If you see something strange, report it.
Look out for your fellow PVLSE community members as well as yourself. If you see behaviour that violates terms, on or off the platform, ensure to report it as soon as possible to the appropriate authorities as well as the PVLSE team, as we cannot be responsible for everyone who attends activities.
We are a social discovery ecosystem that connects like-minded people and fosters offline encounters and experiences. It also allows anyone to start earning by sharing their knowledge and skills with the community.
To “feel the pulse of the city” and get a real-time overview of people’s interests and activities around you. To connect with supportive peers and engage in purposeful experiences. To start earning from the activities you create and share.
The app is free to download, and anyone can join and create free activities. However, some pvlses have entry costs, and the price would be defined by the creator.
A pvlse is an activity or event that you can join or create.
For now we are focusing on activities related to sports, food, and wellbeing. Our plan is to build a community where there is something for everyone, so stay tuned for the latest additions.
Yes, as long as you meet the criteria set by the creator. Example: Some pvlses may require you to master a sport or discipline to a certain skill level to make the most of your experience. Similarly, some pvlses may be intended to participants of a specific gender.
Any user can create a pvlse for others to take part in. If there is something you want to do, create your own pvlse and see who wants to join. Note: If you want to create paid pvlses you will have to add a payment method first.
If you have a skill, knowledge or expertise you’d like to share that the community could benefit from, then you can create a paid pvlse. Set a price and see if anyone is interested. If they are then you are good to go, if not, then you may want to adjust your price or offering. If you are a business owner, you can offer activities to a wider audience and target locals or visitors who are interested in your sport or activity. Users will sign up, and pay to participate through our platform. With our subscription offer, you can create unlimited pvlses, and we take only 1% commission.
You can search for local pvlses or search in advance for activities in a location that you wish to visit.
We are committed to facilitating more real life engagement and offline experiences. We believe that connecting over common ground leads to meaningful encounters that can last a lifetime. We want to be surrounded by motivating, inspiring and supportive peers, and be encouraged to be the best versions of ourselves. And so we have created PVLSE to help others do the same. We also believe that everyone has incredible talents and skills to share, and we want to give people the opportunity to follow their passions and be fairly rewarded for the value they bring.
