1.1 - Introduction
1.2 - General
Dasdak is a social commerce platform designed to help people, places, organizations, suppliers, employees, and businesses connect with each other. To help form these connections, whether commercial or social, Dasdak allows you to share information about yourself and your organizations with other users and organizations. Wherever possible, we have integrated privacy settings and access controls to help you control how much information you share.
1.3 - Scope
1.4 - Modification
1.5 - Questions
2.1 - Information You Provide
When you sign up for Dasdak you must provide us with your name, date of birth, and email address. Any other information you provide is optional, and most information you provide can be controlled using our Privacy Settings. In some cases we may ask for additional information for security reasons or to provide specific services to you.
2.2 - Content You Provide
One reason people use Dasdak is to share content with others. Examples include: creating a personal profile page for other users to view, sharing images and videos using the Content System, or marketing a business. Sharing this type of content is voluntary and you do so at your own risk. Dasdak cannot control how other users may choose to share or use your content and information. If you do not want us to store metadata associated with content you share on Dasdak (such as photos or documents), please remove the metadata before uploading the content.
2.3 - Transactional Information
Dasdak does not store your credit card information. All of your credit card details are retained by our payments provider (Braintree Payments) in full compliance with PCI and other regulations. However, we may retain other details of transactions or payments you make on Dasdak. If you make a transaction with another party, that party may also retain information about that transaction, but that information may be limited to your name, email, and the time, date, and amount of the transaction.
When you purchase goods or services from a Dasdak place page, you are granting Dasdak express permission to share your name and contact information with both Dasdak and the place page, including the page owner and any relevant employees. This information is made available to the place page only for the purpose of completing and fulfilling your order, and the place page (including its owners and employees) does not have permission to use your information for marketing or any other purpose unless you specifically "opt-in" to do so. By offering goods and services on Dasdak, each place page agrees to maintain the privacy of your confidential information; however, Dasdak is not responsible for place pages that fail to live up to this requirement.
2.4 - Site Activity Information
We keep track of some of the actions you take on Dasdak, such as adding connections (including adding a friend, adding a watcher, adding an employer, and creating a page), creating a photo album, sending a deal, or indicating you "have", "want", or "like" an item. In some cases you are also taking an action when you provide information or content to us. For example, if you share a video, in addition to storing the actual content you uploaded, we might log the fact that you shared it. These types of activity may be shared with your friends and watchers according to your privacy settings, and we reserve the right to use this information internally to improve our services and provide more relevant advertising.
2.5 - Device and Browser Information
When you access Dasdak from a computer, mobile phone, or other device, we may collect information from that device about your browser type, location, and IP address, as well as the pages you visit. This information helps us make the site more secure.
2.6 - Cookie Information
We may use "cookies" (small pieces of data stored for an extended period of time on your computer, mobile phone, or other device) to make Dasdak easier to use, to make our advertising better, and to protect both you and Dasdak. For example, we may use them to store your login ID (but never your password) to make it easier for you to login whenever you come back to Dasdak. We may also use them to confirm that you are logged into Dasdak, and to know when you are interacting with other Dasdak websites or services. You can remove or block cookies using the settings in your browser, but in some cases that may impact your ability to use Dasdak.
2.7 - Information from Other Users
We may collect information about you from other Dasdak users, such as when a friend indicates a relationship with you or tags you in a photo, video, or place. This information may be shared with your friends and watchers according to your privacy settings, and we reserve the right to use this information internally to improve our services and provide more relevant advertising.
2.8 - Compliance with Law and Other Disclosures
Dasdak reserves the right to release Personal Data in order to comply with applicable law and when we believe that disclosure is necessary to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served on Dasdak. We may also release Personal Data to enforce or apply the terms and conditions applicable to our products and services, and those of our partners to protect us or others against fraudulent or inappropriate activities, or otherwise protect the rights, property or safety of Dasdak, our affiliated companies, our customers, or others.
Protecting Your Information
3.1 - Risks
We will always do our best to protect your privacy, but unfortunately there are some inherent risks to sharing your personal information on the Internet. We cannot ensure that information you share on Dasdak will not become publicly available. We are not responsible for third party circumvention of any privacy settings or security features on Dasdak. For example, we cannot guarantee that only authorized persons will view your information. You can reduce these risks by using common sense security practices such as choosing a strong password, protecting that password, and using different passwords for different services and websites.
3.2 - What We Can Do
3.3 - What You Can Do
We do our best to keep your information secure, but we need your help to maintain this security. You can protect your information by being careful about how you share information on Dasdak, and by using our Privacy Settings and Access Control Settings. These settings allow you to select your own privacy settings and control the ability of other users to access your information. However, please be aware that no security measures are perfect or impenetrable. We cannot control the actions taken by you or users that you share your information with, so please be careful about how, and with whom, you share information on Dasdak. You should also report any suspicious activity or security violations to Dasdak by using the various "report user" features throughout the site, or by clicking here.
4.1 - Privacy Settings
Dasdak provides extensive privacy settings to give you control over how your information is shared with other users on our network. The privacy settings allow you to set different privacy levels for different types of information, content, and activity associated with your account.
There are five privacy levels you can use to control how you share on Dasdak: Everyone, Watchers, Friends, Close Friends, and Only Me. "Everyone" means that the information will be visible to all other Dasdak users, including your watchers, friends, and close friends, and possibly visible to search engines and individuals outside the Dasdak system. "Watchers" means that the information will be visible to users that are watching your Dasdak account, as well as your friends and close friends. "Friends" means that the information will be visible to your friends and close friends, but not your watchers or other Dasdak users. "Close Friends" means that the information will only be visible to users designated as close friends, but not your other friends or watchers. "Only Me" means that the information is only visible by you.
4.2 - Facebook Settings
Dasdak allows its users to use Facebook to share information about their activity on Dasdak. By default, Dasdak will occasionally push stories about your activity on Dasdak to your Facebook wall. If you would not like to share information about your Dasdak activities on Facebook you can control the type of information that is shared through Facebook by adjusting the Facebook Settings area of your settings page.

We may also share this information with our authorized Third Party Service Providers and Advertisers to measure the overall effectiveness of our online advertising, content, and programming.
Sharing with Third Parties
5.1 - Outside Services
5.2 - Sharing Within Dasdak

6.2 - Close your account
If you want to stop using Dasdak you may close your account at any time by choosing the "Close Account" option in the My Dasdak Control Panel. When you close your account, no user will be able to see or search for your account. Your information may persist on our servers so that it will be available if you choose to reactivate your account, but the account and any content or information it contains will not be available to other users. If you wish to remove all of your information and content from our servers you must delete each piece of information and content individually.
6.3 - Limitations on removal
Even if you remove information or delete your account, copies of that information may remain viewable elsewhere to the extent it has been shared with others in accordance with your privacy settings. At our discretion, we may also retain certain information to prevent identity theft, fraud, or other misconduct even if deletion has been requested. If you have given third parties access to your information, they may retain your information to the extent permitted under their terms of service or privacy policies.
6.4 - Backup copies
Removed and deleted information may persist in backup copies for a reasonable amount of time, but will not be available to other users or third parties.
7.1 - Definitions
7.2 - Children and Minors
Children under the age of 13 are not permitted to use Dasdak under their own account and we do not intentionally collect or maintain Personal Information from those who are under 13 years of age. Protecting the privacy of children is very important to us. Thus, if we obtain actual knowledge that a user is under 13, we may take steps to remove that user\'s Personal Information permanently from our databases to the best of our abilities. We recommend that children between the ages of 13 and 18 obtain their parent's permission before submitting information to Dasdak. By using Dasdak, you are representing that you are at least 18 years old, or that you are at least 13 years old and have a parent's or guardian's permission to use Dasdak.
