Terms of Service


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)”.


Please read the terms of service carefully and if you have any questions about the terms of service or any of our legal documents please email us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .
