ACCEPTABLE USE AND RULES POLICY
This Acceptable Use and Rules policy (this “Policy”) sets out the terms between you and us under which you may access our website www.dontsendmeacard.com (our site). This Policy applies to Account Holders and all other visitors to (“Users”) our site.
Our site is operated by Dontsendmeacard.com Ltd. ("We/Our"). We are registered in England and Wales under company number 08697972 and have our registered office at Chichester Place, 18 Southernhay East, Exeter, EX1 1QD.
Our Site is a platform where certain users (“Account Holders”) register and set up a page (“Occasion Page”) to receive a monetary gift or have a donation made to a charity or other third party chosen by the Account Holder (“Gift”) instead of and in preference to a greetings card, gift and the associated costs of these from other users (“Contributors”) and to promote this Occasion Page on our Site, by email and social media. The Occasion Page, promotion of the same and the management of payment of the gifts are referred to as the “Services”. Through our Site, email, websites, and other media, various content, including, but not limited to, videos, photographs, images, artwork, graphics, audio clips, comments, data, text, software, scripts, projects, other material and information, and works (“Content”) is made available. Account Holders, Contributors and other visitors to and users of the Service (“Users”) may have the ability to contribute, add, create, upload, submit, distribute, facilitate the distribution of, collect, post, or otherwise make accessible ("Submit") Content. “User Submissions” means any Content Submitted by Users.
You may use our site only for lawful purposes. You may not use our site:
• In any way that breaches any applicable local, national or international law or regulation. If you access our Services from locations outside the UK you do so at your own initiative and are responsible for compliance with local laws.
• In any way that is unlawful or fraudulent, or has any unlawful or fraudulent purpose or effect.
• For the purpose of harming or attempting to harm minors in any way.
• To send, knowingly receive, upload, download, use or re-use any material which does not comply with our content standards.
• To transmit, or procure the sending of, any unsolicited or unauthorised advertising or promotional material or any other form of similar solicitation (spam).
• To knowingly transmit any data, send or upload any material that contains viruses, Trojan horses, worms, time-bombs, keystroke loggers, spyware, adware or any other harmful programs or similar computer code designed to adversely affect the operation of any computer software or hardware.
You also agree:
• When registering as an Account Holder or setting up an Occasion Page you shall not use any name or term that
• (i) is the name of another person, with the intent to impersonate that person;
• (ii) is subject to any rights of another person, without appropriate authorisation;
• (iii) is offensive, vulgar, or obscene.
We reserve the right in our sole discretion to refuse or cancel your registration and account. You are solely responsible for activity that occurs on your account and shall be responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password for the Site. You shall never use another Account Holders account without the other Account Holders express permission
• Not to access without authority, interfere with, damage or disrupt:
• any part of our site;
• any equipment or network on which our site is stored;
• any software used in the provision of our site; or
• any equipment or network or software owned or used by any third party.
We may from time to time provide interactive services on our site, including, without limitation:
• Social Media Integration tools
• Email Integration Tools
• Chat rooms.
• Bulletin or comments boards.
(collectively referred to as “Interactive Services”).
Where we do provide any Interactive Service, we will provide clear information to you about the kind of service offered, if it is moderated and what form of moderation is used (including whether it is human or technical).
We will do our best to assess any possible risks for Users (and in particular, for children) from third parties when they use any Interactive Service provided on our Site, and we will decide in each case whether it is appropriate to use moderation of the relevant service (including what kind of moderation to use) in the light of those risks. However, we are under no obligation to oversee, monitor or moderate any Interactive Service we provide on our Site, and we expressly exclude our liability for any loss or damage arising from the use of any Interactive Service by a User in contravention of our content standards, whether the service is moderated or not.
The use of any of our Interactive Services by a minor is subject to the consent of their parent or guardian. We advise parents who permit their children to use an Interactive Service that it is important that they communicate with their children about their safety online, as moderation is not foolproof. Minors who are using any Interactive Service should be made aware of the potential risks to them.
Where we do moderate an Interactive Service, we will normally provide you with a means of contacting the moderator, should a concern or difficulty arise.
These content standards apply to any and all User Submissions, and to any Interactive Services associated with it.
You must comply with the spirit of the following standards as well as the letter. The standards apply to each part of any contribution as well as to its whole.
• Be accurate (where they state facts).
• Be genuinely held (where they state opinions).
• Comply with applicable law in the UK and in any country from which they are posted.
Contributions must not:
