Legal Notices

Companies like ours are governed by a lot of important rules and regulations. And accompanying those rules and regulations is a bunch of really, really important legalese. But you don’t have to have a law degree to get the gist of what using Dodoname means, what your rights are as a user, and what our commitments are as your friendly neighborhood privacy website. If you want to read the fine print, knock yourself out, but we thought providing you with some no-guff, quick-and-dirty version of the terms and conditions would be helpful. The italics that precede each section in this Terms of Use are those terms and conditions boiled down to understandable language. (Our lawyers wanted us to mention that those italicized descriptions are not part of the official legal terms. Consider it mentioned.)

We, the Operators of this Website, provide it as a public service to our users.

Please carefully review the following basic rules that govern your use of the Website. Please note that your use of the Website constitutes your unconditional agreement to follow and be bound by these Terms and Conditions of Use. If you (the “User”) do not agree to them, do not use the Website, provide any materials to the Website or download any materials from them.

The Operators reserve the right to update or modify these Terms and Conditions at any time without prior notice to User. Your use of the Website following any such change constitutes your unconditional agreement to follow and be bound by these Terms and Conditions as changed. For this reason, we encourage you to review these Terms and Conditions of Use whenever you use the Website.

These Terms and Conditions of Use apply to the use of the Website and do not extend to any linked third party sites. These Terms and Conditions and our Privacy Policy, which are hereby incorporated by reference, contain the entire agreement (the “Agreement”) between you and the Operators with respect to the Website. Any rights not expressly granted herein are reserved.

Permitted and Prohibited Uses

Don’t try and use Dodoname for nefarious or illegal purposes. It’s a great way to protect your privacy, identity and the sanctity of your email inbox when interacting with merchants. It’s not a tool for you to conduct any shady business, okay?

You may use the Website for the sole purpose of communicating with merchants and searching and acquiring offers from merchants. You may not use the Website to violate any applicable local, state, national, or international law.

You may not upload or transmit any material that infringes or misappropriates any person’s copyright, patent, trademark, or trade secret, or disclose via the Website any information the disclosure of which would constitute a violation of any confidentiality obligations you may have.

You may not upload any viruses, worms, Trojan horses, or other forms of harmful computer code, nor subject the Website’s network or servers to unreasonable traffic loads, or otherwise engage in conduct deemed disruptive to the ordinary operation of the Website.

You are strictly prohibited from communicating on or through the Website any unlawful, harmful, offensive, threatening, abusive, libellous, harassing, defamatory, vulgar, obscene, profane, hateful, fraudulent, sexually explicit, racially, ethnically, or otherwise objectionable material of any sort, including, but not limited to, any material that encourages conduct that would constitute a criminal offense, give rise to civil liability, or otherwise violate any applicable local, state, national, or international law.

User Submissions

Don’t give us any information you wouldn’t want used to contact you or identify you. Hackers can’t steal from us what we don’t have. We don’t have a mechanism to collect private information from you, but if you found a way to broadcast that information using our tools, it’s on your conscience.

The Operators do not want to receive confidential or proprietary information from you through the Website. Any material, information, or other communication you transmit or post (“Contributions”) to the Website will be considered non-confidential.

All contributions you make to this site by yourself are licensed by you to anyone who wishes to use them, including the Operators.

User Discussion Lists and Forums

Remember those party phone lines, where you could (either on purpose or by accident – we’re not judging) listen in on phone calls that weren’t for you? Yeah, well, Dodoname isn’t one of those. Your interactions with Merchants aren’t our business, so we’ll stay out of the middle of those. As such, it’s up to you and the Merchant to keep it clean, respect one another’s boundaries, and generally be respectful.

The Operators may, but are not obligated to, monitor or review any areas on the Website where users transmit or post communications or communicate solely with each other, including but not limited to user forums and email lists, and the content of any such communications. The Operators, however, will have no liability related to the content of any such communications, whether or not arising under the laws of copyright, libel, privacy, obscenity, or otherwise. The Operators may edit or remove content on the Website at their discretion at any time.

Use of Personally Identifiable Information

Want to learn more about how we protect your privacy? Read our Privacy Policy and FAQs. If you sign up for the site with a phony email, well, then the site won’t work for you (which kinda defeats the purpose of signing up.) If you share your password, well, you may not care as much about privacy as you think you do. If your account information is compromised in any way, let us know as soon as possible. We live and breathe privacy, but it takes a village.

Information submitted to the Website is governed according to the Operator’s current Privacy Policy and the stated license of this website.

Although sections of the Website may be viewed simply by visiting the Website, in order to access some Content and/or additional features offered at the Website, you may need to sign on as a guest or register as a member. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of the password and account and are fully responsible for all activities that occur in connection with your password or account. You agree to immediately notify us of any unauthorized use of either your password or account or any other breach of security. You further agree that you will not permit others, including those whose accounts have been terminated, to access the Website using your account or User ID. You grant the Operators and all other persons or entities involved in the operation of the Website the right to transmit, monitor, retrieve, store, and use your information in connection with the operation of the Website and in the provision of services to you. The Operators cannot and do not assume any responsibility or liability for any information you submit, or your or third parties’ use or misuse of information transmitted or received using website.

Indemnification

If you do something on Dodoname that gets us in trouble with the law, we’re in this together; you’d have to help defend us. If you do something on Dodoname that gets you in trouble with the law, you’re on your own. Ya, I know; that may not sound very fair, but you’re the one mucking about so there you have it.

You agree to defend, indemnify and hold harmless the Operators, agents, vendors or suppliers from and against any and all claims, damages, costs and expenses, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, arising from or related to your use or misuse of the Website, including, without limitation, your violation of these Terms and Conditions, the infringement by you, or any other subscriber or user of your account, of any intellectual property right or other right of any person or entity.

Termination

We value our users and hope this is the start of a long-term, beautiful relationship. But if the magic is gone for either of us, the only solution is for us to go our separate ways. If you love something, set it free, as the saying goes.

These Terms and Conditions of Use are effective until terminated by either party. If you no longer agree to be bound by these Terms and Conditions, you must cease use of the Website. If you are dissatisfied with the Website, their content, or any of these terms, conditions, and policies, your sole legal remedy is to discontinue using the Website. The Operators reserve the right to terminate or suspend your access to and use of the Website, or parts of the Website, without notice, if we believe, in our sole discretion, that such use (i) is in violation of any applicable law; (ii) is harmful to our interests or the interests, including intellectual property or other rights, of another person or entity; or (iii) where the Operators have reason to believe that you are in violation of these Terms and Conditions of Use.

Warranty Disclaimer

We’ll do our darndest to provide you with a high-performing website but sometimes technology doesn’t work as we all want it to. You’re using this website on the understanding that we’re trying our best and the site is provided on an as-is and as-available basis. If something goes haywire, we’re likely working on it. And if something you do on our site causes any kind of damage to you and we are found to be responsible, we’re only going to pay you a very little bit. And I mean very little bit. Like five bucks. Canadian.

The website and associated materials are provided on an “as is” and “as available” basis. To the full extent permissible by applicable law, the operators disclaim all warranties, express or implied, including, but not limited to, implied warranties of merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose, or non-infringement of intellectual property. The operators make no representations or warranty that the website will meet your requirements, or that your use of the website will be uninterrupted, timely, secure, or error free; nor do the operators make any representation or warranty as to the results that may be obtained from the use of the website. The operators make no representations or warranties of any kind, express or implied, as to the operation of the website or the information, content, materials, or products included on the website.

In no event shall the operators or any of their agents, vendors or suppliers be liable for any damages whatsoever (including, without limitation, damages for loss of profits, business interruption, loss of information) arising out of the use, misuse of or inability to use the website, even if the operators have been advised of the possibility of such damages. This disclaimer constitutes an essential part of this agreement. Because some jurisdictions prohibit the exclusion or limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, the above limitation may not apply to you.

You understand and agree that any content downloaded or otherwise obtained through the use of the website is at your own discretion and risk and that you will be solely responsible for any damage to your computer system or loss of data or business interruption that results from the download of content. The operators shall not be responsible for any loss or damage caused, or alleged to have been caused, directly or indirectly, by the information or ideas contained, suggested or referenced in or appearing on the website. Your participation in the website is solely at your own risk. No advice or information, whether oral or written, obtained by you from the operators or through the operators, their employees, or third parties shall create any warranty not expressly made herein. You acknowledge, by your use of the website, that your use of the website is at your sole risk.

Liability limitation. Under no circumstances and under no legal or equitable theory, whether in tort, contract, negligence, strict liability or otherwise, shall the operators or any of their agents, vendors or suppliers be liable to user or to any other person for any indirect, special, incidental or consequential losses or damages of any nature arising out of or in connection with the use of or inability to use the website or for any breach of security associated with the transmission of sensitive information through the website or for any information obtained through the website, including, without limitation, damages for lost profits, loss of goodwill, loss or corruption of data, work stoppage, accuracy of results, or computer failure or malfunction, even if an authorized representative of the operators has been advised of or should have known of the possibility of such damages.

The operator’s total cumulative liability for any and all claims in connection with the website will not exceed five Canadian dollars (CAD5.00). User agrees and acknowledges that the foregoing limitations on liability are an essential basis of the bargain and that the operators would not provide the website absent such limitation.

General

We Dodos are a bunch of Canucks, eh, but our website is hosted in the US of A. We’re one big, happy North American website. If you’re outside North America, the powers that be where you are may take issue with your accessing the site for some reason, and that’s up to you to figure out.

The Website is hosted in the United States. The Operators make no claims that the Content on the Website is appropriate or may be downloaded outside of the United States. Access to the Content may not be legal by certain persons or in certain countries. If you access the Website from outside the United States, you do so at your own risk and are responsible for compliance with the laws of your jurisdiction.

If you’re gonna lawyer up and go all legal on us, you have to notify us in writing, send it to our proper address, and allow a reasonable amount of time for it to get to us.

A party may give notice to the other party only in writing at that party’s principal place of business. Notice shall be deemed given upon personal delivery of if sent by certified mail with postage prepaid, 5 business days after the date of mailing, or, if sent by international overnight courier with postage prepaid, 7 business days after the date of mailing.

If our lawyers goofed and sections of these Terms of Use are unenforceable, then both of us agree we will abide by what the lawyers probably meant to say. Or we’ll get them to clarify what they meant to say and abide by that.

If any provision herein is held to be unenforceable, the remaining provisions will continue in full force without being affected in any way. Further, the parties agree to replace such unenforceable provision with an enforceable provision that most closely approximates the intent and economic effect of the unenforceable provision. Section headings are for reference purposes only and do not define, limit, construe or describe the scope or extent of such section.

We sure hope you never want to sue us but if you do – please don’t – then you have to do so within a year, and you must do so in our backyard, Ontario. (You’ll like it here. We have really good beer.)

Any action or proceeding arising out of or related to this Agreement or User’s use of the Website must be brought in the courts of Ontario, Canada, and you consent to the exclusive personal jurisdiction and venue of such courts. Any cause of action you may have with respect to your use of the Website must be commenced within one (1) year after the claim or cause of action arises.

This version of our Terms and Conditions is the one that counts. Any previous ones you might have read are now like they never existed.

These Terms set forth the entire understanding and agreement of the parties, and supersedes any and all oral or written agreements or understandings between the parties, as to their subject matter. The waiver of a breach of any provision of this Agreement shall not be construed as a waiver of any other or subsequent breach.

Links to Other Materials

We’re part of an online ecosystem, a World Wide Web, as it were. But we are only responsible for our little corner of the web at www.www.dodoname.com. Other sites, including ones that might be linked to from ours, are responsible for themselves.

The Website may contain links to sites owned or operated by independent third parties. These links are provided for your convenience and reference only. We do not control such sites and, therefore, we are not responsible for any content posted on these sites. The fact that the Operators offer such links should not be construed in any way as an endorsement, authorization, or sponsorship of that site, its content or the companies or products referenced therein, and the Operators reserve the right to note its lack of affiliation, sponsorship, or endorsement on the Website. If you decide to access any of the third-party sites linked to by the Website, you do this entirely at your own risk. Because some sites employ automated search results or otherwise link you to sites containing information that may be deemed inappropriate or offensive, the Operators cannot be held responsible for the accuracy, copyright compliance, legality, or decency of material contained in third party sites, and you hereby irrevocably waive any claim against us with respect to such sites.

Notification Of Possible Copyright Infringement

We take copyright seriously and will never intentionally infringe on anyone’s rights. If we’ve unintentionally infringed, we’ll work to rectify it right away if you let us know.

In the event you believe that material or content published on the Website may infringe on your copyright or that of another, please contact us.
