Your access and use of the Services constitutes your agreement to be bound by these Terms, which establishes a contractual relationship between you and Deed. If you do not agree to these Terms, you may not access or use the Services. These Terms expressly supersede prior agreements or arrangements with you. In these Terms, the words “including” and “include” mean “including, but not limited to.” Deed may immediately terminate these Terms or any Services with respect to you, or generally cease offering or deny access to the Services or any portion thereof, at any time for any reason.
Supplemental terms may apply to certain Services, such as policies for a particular event, activity or promotion, and such supplemental terms will be disclosed to you in region-specific disclosures or in connection with the applicable Service(s). Supplemental terms are in addition to, and shall be deemed a part of, the Terms for the purposes of the applicable Service(s). Supplemental terms shall prevail over these Terms in the event of a conflict with respect to the applicable Services.
Deed may amend the Terms related to the Services from time to time. Amendments will be effective upon Deed’s posting of such updated Terms at this location or the amended policies or supplemental terms on the applicable Service(s). Your continued access or use of the Services after such posting constitutes your consent to be bound by the Terms, as amended.
2. The Services
The Services constitute a technology platform that enables users of Deed’s mobile applications or websites provided as part of the Services (each, an “Application“) to locate, learn about, and schedule volunteer opportunities with organizations in need of such volunteer services. Unless otherwise agreed by Deed in a separate written agreement with you, the Services are made available solely for your personal, noncommercial use. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT DEED DOES NOT PROVIDE VOLUNTEER SERVICES, OR PROVIDE VOLUNTEERING OPPORTUNITIES, IN ANY WAY. VOLUNTEERS ARE SOLELY RESPONSIBLE FOR PROVIDING THEIR SERVICES TO A VOLUNTEER ORGANIZATION, AND VOLUNTEER ORGANIZATIONS ARE SOLELY RESPONSIBLE FOR THE HOSTING OF ANY VOLUNTEERS.
Subject to your compliance with these Terms, Deed grants you a limited, non-exclusive, non-sublicensable, revocable, non-transferrable license to: (i) access and use the Applications on your personal device solely in connection with your use of the Services; and (ii) access and use any content, information and related materials that may be made available through the Services, in each case solely for your personal, noncommercial use. Any rights not expressly granted herein are reserved by Deed and Deed’s licensors, as applicable.
You may not: (i) remove any copyright, trademark or other proprietary notices from any portion of the Services; (ii) reproduce, modify, prepare derivative works based upon, distribute, license, lease, sell, resell, transfer, publicly display, publicly perform, transmit, stream, broadcast or otherwise exploit the Services except as expressly permitted by Deed in writing; (iii) decompile, reverse engineer or disassemble the Services; (iv) link to, mirror or frame any portion of the Services; (v) cause or launch any programs or scripts for the purpose of scraping, indexing, surveying, or otherwise data mining any portion of the Services or unduly burdening or hindering the operation and/or functionality of any aspect of the Services; or (vi) attempt to gain unauthorized access to or impair any aspect of the Services or its related systems or networks.
Provision of the Services
If you are using the Services to find volunteering opportunities (a “Volunteer”), your correspondence and/or ensuing relationship with nonprofit and public service organizations, volunteers, partners, advertisers, sponsors or other third parties found on or through the Services (an “Organization“), including posting or acceptance of volunteer opportunities, and any other terms or conditions associated with such dealings, are solely between Volunteer and the Organization(s) you choose to deal with. YOU AGREE THAT DEED WILL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE OR LIABLE FOR ANY LOSS, COST, DAMAGE, OR OTHER LIABILITY OF ANY SORT INCURRED AS THE RESULT OF ANY SUCH DEALINGS, OR AS THE RESULT OF THE PRESENCE OF SUCH PARTIES ON THE SERVICES AND YOU HEREBY IRREVOCABLY WAIVE ANY CLAIMS AGAINST DEED ARISING FROM OR RELATED TO YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH AN ORGANIZATION.

You must be at least 18 years of age, or the age of legal majority in your jurisdiction (if different than 18), to obtain an Account. Account registration requires you to submit to Deed certain personal information, such as your name, mobile phone number, date of birth, and gender. You agree to maintain accurate, complete, and up-to-date information in your Account. Your failure to maintain accurate, complete, and up-to-date Account information may result in your inability to access and use the Services or Deed’s termination of these Terms with you. You are responsible for all activity that occurs under your Account, and you agree to maintain the security and secrecy of your Account username and password at all times. Unless otherwise permitted by Deed in writing, you may only possess one Account.

Deed may, in Deed’s sole discretion, permit you from time to time to submit, upload, publish or otherwise make available to Deed through the Services textual, audio, and/or visual content and information, including but not limited commentary and feedback related to the Services, user profiles, and initiation of support requests (“User Content“). Any User Content provided by you remains your property. However, by providing User Content to Deed, you grant Deed a worldwide, perpetual, irrevocable, transferrable, royalty-free license, with the right to sublicense, to use, copy, modify, create derivative works of, distribute, publicly display, publicly perform, and otherwise exploit in any manner such User Content in all formats and distribution channels now known or hereafter devised (including in connection with the Services and Deed’s business and on third-party sites and services), without further notice to or consent from you, and without the requirement of payment to you or any other person or entity.
You represent and warrant that: (i) you either are the sole and exclusive owner of all User Content or you have all rights, licenses, consents and releases necessary to grant Deed the license to the User Content as set forth above; and (ii) neither the User Content nor your submission, uploading, publishing or otherwise making available of such User Content, nor Deed’s use of the User Content as permitted herein, will infringe, misappropriate or violate a third party’s intellectual property or proprietary rights, or rights of publicity or privacy, or result in the violation of any applicable law or regulation.
You agree to not provide User Content that is defamatory, libelous, hateful, violent, obscene, pornographic, unlawful, or otherwise offensive, as determined by Deed in its sole discretion, whether or not such material may be protected by law. Deed may, but shall not be obligated to, review, monitor, or remove User Content, at Deed’s sole discretion and at any time and for any reason, without notice to you.

You are responsible for obtaining the data network access necessary to use the Services. Your mobile network’s data and messaging rates and fees may apply if you access or use the Services from a wireless-enabled device.
