Welcome to Dagizmo! This agreement (“Agreement”) describes your rights and responsibilities in your use of Dagizmo’s website, mobile apps, and service, both as a visitor and as a registered Dagizmo member, and what you can expect from us. By visiting, joining, clicking “I accept”, or using Dagizmo or by otherwise indicating that you agree, you are agreeing to these terms, so please take a moment to read this legally binding agreement.
Dagizmo is the private social network for neighborhoods; we hope that neighbors everywhere will use the Dagizmo platform to build stronger and safer neighborhoods around the world. We use “Dagizmo” here to refer to the Dagizmo.com website and our iOS and Android apps (also referred to as our “Services”) that provide you with access to that platform. We also use “Dagizmo” to refer to the companies operating our Services.
Eligibility. Each person can only have one account per residence, and you may not share your account password with anyone else (even a family member sharing your home) or allow someone else to use your personal account. You must use your real name, not a pseudonym. If you are under 13 years old (or any older age of consent required to use social media services where you live), do not use our services or provide any data to us.
Address Verification. It is not OK to submit inaccurate registration information, or to register if you know you don’t meet our eligibility requirements. Providing false registration information violates our norms and could constitute a crime.
We make efforts to enforce our eligibility requirements, but please do not assume these processes are perfect. For example, we require members to verify their status as real-world residential neighbors, and we use public registries to identify and block registered sex offenders in the United States (and other countries where permitted) from registering for personal residential accounts.
Account Types. Dagizmo offers personal accounts to individual residential members, and special, restricted-functionality accounts to government agencies, such as city offices or police or fire departments, and to businesses, nonprofits, news media, and other organizations. Special accounts agree to additional terms and cannot see neighborhood discussions, nor can they access private messages between neighbors.
Be A Good Neighbor. At Dagizmo, we believe that neighborly behavior is the foundation of healthy communities. Our Community Guidelines outline our expectations regarding appropriate use of Dagizmo. Do not provide us with any Content that you don’t have the right to publish, or that is defamatory, infringing, illegal or otherwise tortious. We do not proactively screen or monitor Content posted by members; however, we can remove Content posted by you, suspend, delete or deactivate your account or other privileges, or otherwise refuse service to you, if you violate this agreement or our other policies, or infringe intellectual property, or otherwise engage in behavior that we think harms a Dagizmo neighborhood.
Interacting with Other Members. Our Community Guidelines outline our expectations regarding appropriate use of Dagizmo, including how members interact with each other. While we hope other members will be neighborly, we don’t control and aren’t responsible for their actions; we encourage you to do your own research before deciding to do business with another member. In using Dagizmo and its member-to-member transactional features (such as Classifieds), you, like every member (including Leads), are acting on your own behalf and are responsible for your own decisions and actions, including posting Content and interactions with neighbors you meet through Dagizmo. If you write a recommendation or other comment about another neighbor or a business (for example, a recommendation of a tutor), be truthful, fair and neighborly in your comments, and do not post any of their personal information (e.g., address, mobile number, or photos) without their permission. Some members take on a volunteer role as Lead for their neighborhood, to help manage their neighborhood on Dagizmo. Leads are provided with additional account features to use to support their neighborhood; they are not Dagizmo employees, representatives, or agents.
Dagizmo does not interview, run background checks on, monitor, supervise, or control Dagizmo members, including those who volunteer as Leads, and your use of Local Pages or any similar feature does not make us an employer, placement agency, representative, or agent of or for you or any other neighbor or service provider. If you and another member decide to work together, the two of you, and not Dagizmo, are responsible for complying with any laws that might apply, such as tax or employment laws. Dagizmo is not a party to transactions or disputes between members.
Feedback. Please feel free to share any feedback, suggestions, or ideas you have about Dagizmo with us, so long as you understand we may have already had the same idea, and you agree that we are free to use any feedback you voluntarily provide with no restriction or obligation (payment or otherwise) to you.
Text Messaging Alerts. If you use our text messaging service, note that text message alerts are not intended to replace any primary phone service, such as a traditional landline or mobile phone that may be used to contact emergency services. Dagizmo does not charge for sending text messages, but your carrier may charge you. Alerts sent via SMS may not be delivered if your phone is not in range of a transmission site, or if sufficient network capacity is not available at a particular time; furthermore, within a coverage area, factors beyond the control of the user’s wireless carrier may interfere with message delivery, including equipment, terrain, proximity to buildings, foliage, and weather. You acknowledge that urgent alerts may not be timely received and that your wireless carrier does not guarantee that alerts will be delivered.
Parental Controls. Parental control protections (such as computer hardware, software, or filtering services) may assist you in limiting access to material that is harmful to or inappropriate for minors. You can find more information about parental controls by reviewing the system preferences, settings, and help documentation for your computer or mobile device, or through resources such as this one.
