Data Policy & Terms of Service

Hi there!

I’m Alex Balinski, the founder of Lifey (app/website/YouTube channels). In 2012 I felt inspired to quit my campus job and create free online resources. Over the past year I’ve been privileged to conduct/edit more than 1,000 hour long video interviews about people’s life experiences. I love people and I have a great desire to serve as many people as I can.

I’m not a fan of legalese, but here’s a privacy policy regarding for the Lifey website/app/YouTube channels.
