Hey everyone this is where we keep all our legal mumbo jumbo about what we provide and how you should use what we offer. We’ve added a little description at the top of each section to make it easier to understand but it’s still long and in my opinion boring but don’t tell our lawyer that.
Welcome to Dudepins, our business name is “Dudepins Technology Corp.” but for simplicity we will refer to our business as dudepins (“dudepins”) which operates a website (“site”). By accessing, browsing or using this site, you are agreeing to be bound by these terms of service (“terms of service”) and all applicable laws and regulations. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE WITH ANY PART OF THESE TERMS OF SERVICE, YOU MUST IMMEDIATELY DISCONTINUE ANY USE OF THE SITE.
Dudepins is an online and social sharing platform. Registered users, visitors and others who access our service (“users”) have the ability to share and collect thoughts and images known as a “montage”. Users can view and share these montages through the site, mobile applications and through third party applications. We call all the services on the site, whether accessed directly or through another application the “service(s)”.
This part talks about how to properly share content. We want people to share but we also want people to get credit for their work. So if you don’t own the content give who ever does the credit. It’s only fair.
You agree that you are solely responsible for (and that dudepins has no responsibility to you or to any third party for) and Content that you create, transit, or display while using the site and for the consequences of your actions (including any loss or damage which dudepins may suffer) by doing so. Once content has been shared on dudepins you understand that you are granting dudepins a worldwide, royalty-free license to use, reformat, excerpt or translate such material and information in the use of the service.
Dudepins reserves the right (but shall have no obligation) to pre-screen, review, flag, filter, modify, refuse or remove any or all content from the site.
You can’t steal our jokes!! Dudepins has got the hottest content around and we know everyone wants a piece but you can’t have it!
Hopefully you want to join the dudepins community so you can start creating montages and checking out dude stuff. Below explains what creating an account or signup for the site means other than that you are now awesome.
Sharing content is the core of what dudepins is about. Also, not violating laws and getting sued is at the core of what dudepins is all about. This is a very important section so much so that it has its own document. Please give it a read.
