Term & Conditions

Terms last updated: 9 December 2023

Linkdeh is a content sharing platform that enables creators to connect their audiences with their most recent and relevant content. One of our core values is to pursue deliberate simplicity — so we’ve tried to distill our terms and conditions into their simplest, most accessible form here.

1. Welcome to Linkdeh!

It’s great to have you here. These Terms, along with the linked policies, govern your use of our services – the website (https://linkdeh.com/), apps, and related software or features (collectively referred to as the “Platform” or “Linkdeh”).
When we use terms like “we,” “our,” or “us” in these Terms, we’re talking about Linkdeh Inc. and our group companies. By using Linkdeh, you’re agreeing to these Terms & Conditions (“Terms”) as well as the additional policies linked here and on the Platform. Please take the time to read these Terms carefully, and feel free to get in touch if you have any questions. If you don’t agree with these Terms, please don’t use Linkdeh.

2. Changes to these Terms

Linkdeh is constantly evolving and improving. From time to time we may make changes to the Platform or these Terms. We may need to change these Terms from time-to-time to reflect business updates, changes to the Platform (including if we decide to discontinue any functionality, features or part of the Platform), legal or commercial reasons, or otherwise to protect our legitimate interests. We can make these changes at any time and it’s your responsibility to check these Terms now and then for any changes.

However, if a change will have a material negative effect on you, we’ll use our best efforts to notify you at least 1 month before the change takes effect (e.g. via a notification on the Platform). Your continued use of the Platform after any changes to the Terms is taken as your acceptance of the revised Terms. If you don’t agree with the changes, we ask you to please stop using Linkdeh and cancel your account.

3. Your Account

To create an account and become a Linkdeh user, you must be at least 18. If you’re creating an account on behalf of someone else, you must have their permission to do so. You’re responsible for your account and ensuring it is only used in a lawfully. When you create an account, you agree to comply with these Terms and that you’re over 18 and legally able to enter these Terms with us. You must provide us with accurate info about yourself — if anything changes, please let us know so we can update your details.

If you’re using Linkdeh on behalf of a business or individual, you confirm that you’re authorised by them to agree to these Terms on their behalf. You’re responsible for anything that happens to your account, so keep your login details and password safe and don’t share them with anyone.

If you think your account has been compromised, please contact us immediately. You must not assign or transfer your account to someone else or use your account (or allow it to be used by anyone) in a way which in our reasonable opinion, causes damage to Linkdeh or our reputation, or infringes another’s rights or applicable laws and regulations.

4. Your Username

When you create a Linkdeh, you’ll need to choose a suitable username that respects everyone’s rights. We understand your username holds significance, but it must also be appropriate for all users and avoid infringing on anyone’s rights, including intellectual property (IP) rights like copyright and trademarks. You can’t use someone else’s name, like a celebrity or brand, or pick a username that’s offensive, vulgar, or unrelated just to profit from it later (referred to as “Domain Squatting”).

If any issues arise with your username, we’ll assess the situation fairly and may ask you to change it (it might be reassigned too). If you decline, we may suspend or terminate your account. If someone claims your username violates their IP rights, they must file an Intellectual Property report, and you’ll have the chance to respond with a Counter Notice. If you haven’t logged in, added new links, or seen traffic in your account for the past 6 months, we might reclaim or reassign your username (but we’ll always contact you first).

5. Managing Your Plan

You can sign up to Linkdeh on a free or paid plan and cancel at any time. Your plan will start when you accept these Terms and continue until you cancel it. If you cancel a paid plan it will ordinarily continue until the end of your current billing cycle and then automatically convert to a free plan. To the extent permitted by applicable law, payments are non-refundable. But we know that sometimes your requirements may change. So, if you’ve selected a paid plan, but cancel within 72 hours, we may make an exception (please email us at [email protected]).

6. Your Content

We love the variety of content that our users post on Linkdeh! However, we want to ensure that everyone who visits the Platform can do so safely – that’s why we have our Community Standards. These standards set out what content is and isn’t allowed on Linkdeh, so please make sure you follow them, otherwise we may suspend or permanently remove your account.
When we talk about your “content”, we mean the text, graphics, videos, links, and any other materials you add to your Linkdeh profile. You’re responsible for your content and you warrant that:

Since laws and regulations can differ across the countries we operate in, we might ban content that is considered legal in some regions but not others. We reserve the right to take appropriate steps to keep Linkdeh safe, including content removal or access restriction.

7. What we can do with Your Content

We love your content and want to show it off. When you post content on your Linkdeh profile, you grant us a licence to (i) use, publicly display, distribute, modify, adapt and create derivative works of such content; and (ii) use your name, image, voice, photograph, likeness and any other personal attributes in the content; on the Platform and in our marketing in all media (such as our social channels and any other advertising). This license is worldwide, royalty-free and perpetual, which means we can use your content anywhere in the world, without paying you fees, for as long as we like. You agree that you have all third party rights necessary to post the content on Linkdeh and to grant us this license.

You’ll retain all of your rights in your content. Keep in mind that your content will be publicly accessible, and may be used and re-shared by others on Linkdeh and across the internet.

Please don’t share personal info on Linkdeh that you don’t want visible to the world. Never post social security numbers, passport details or similar info that could cause harm in the wrong hands. You may only post another person’s personal information where you have their consent and have kept a record of it. We don’t have to monitor the accuracy, reliability or legality of your content, but we may choose to do so.

We may modify, remove or restrict access to content at any time in line with these Terms or apply a sensitive content warning to content that we deem unsuitable for all audiences.

8. Suspention or cancelation of your Account

If you don’t follow these Terms, we might need to suspend or cancel your account, or take other action regarding your account or adjust how the Platform works for you. For example, if you miss paying your fees on time, we could switch your paid plan to a free one with fewer features.

The steps we take will depend on the nature of the non-compliance. In some cases, we might not resort to suspending or canceling your account. However, if there’s a repeated or significant non-compliance, we’re more likely to consider those measures. In the event that we do suspend or cancel your account, we usually aim to notify you beforehand, although we’re not obligated to do so.

Please be aware that you won’t receive a refund for any fees paid in advance.

If you believe your account was mistakenly canceled or if you encounter issues with these Terms or the Platform, please get in touch with us at [email protected]. We’re committed to making good-faith efforts to resolve the matter, and neither party will initiate legal action concerning the issue until we’ve spent at least one month working together to find a resolution.

9. Your responsibility for your visitors and customers

You are responsible for your profile visitors, which includes customers who purchase goods or services through your Linkdeh – collectively known as “End Users.” You bear the sole responsibility for (i) how End Users engage with your profile and content, and (ii) ensuring compliance with all applicable laws concerning your End Users and transactions conducted between you and End Users via your Linkdeh (e.g., through our “Payment blocks” features).

Moreover, you acknowledge that any donations received through our platform features are given voluntarily, without expectation of any goods or services in return. This feature should be utilized exclusively for personal donation collection, not for fundraising on behalf of charities or other causes.

10. Feedback

We love hearing your ideas on how we can make Linkdeh even better! Sometimes, we may make “beta” functionality available to you and seek your feedback. Keep in mind that if you share feedback with us, we’re free to use it however we like, without payment to you (or to not use it at all). We may from time to time make certain functionality of the Platform available to you in “beta” (or similar).
You acknowledge that we are still evaluating and testing such beta functionality and it may not be as reliable as other parts of the Platform.

11. Our Platform

We, as the owners of the Platform, grant you a limited right to use it for sharing content and interacting with other users’ content. However, please note that we are not responsible for any content, products, or services made available through other users’ profiles. All rights, including Intellectual Property (IP) Rights, related to the Platform (excluding your content) (referred to as “Linkdeh IP”), are exclusively owned by Linkdeh or our licensors. You do not acquire any rights in the Linkdeh IP, and you are not allowed to use it, including our brand name or logo, for any purpose without our prior written approval, such as implying a partnership or endorsement from Linkdeh.

As a user, we grant you a limited, revocable, non-exclusive, and non-transferable right to use the Platform for creating, displaying, using, playing, and uploading content in accordance with these Terms.

If we provide you with images, icons, themes, fonts, videos, graphics, or other content, please only use them on your profile and in line with any guidelines we make available to you. Please don’t remove, hide, or alter any proprietary notices or trademarks on the Platform. Copying, reproducing, distributing, licensing, selling, reselling, modifying, translating, disassembling, decompiling, decrypting, reverse-engineering, or attempting to derive the source code of the Platform or any part of it is strictly prohibited.

When you visit Linkdeh profiles as a “profile visitor,” we grant you a limited, non-exclusive, and non-transferable right to view and interact with the Platform through user profiles. To the extent allowed by law, we are not responsible for any opinions, advice, statements, products, services, offers, or other content posted by other users on their profiles.

12. Fees and Payment

Subscription Fees:

If you’ve chosen a paid plan, make sure to pay subscription fees on time. These fees are usually in CAD and include transactional taxes like GST/VAT, unless otherwise specified. Subscription fees are billed in advance on a recurring basis, depending on whether you’ve selected a monthly or annual billing cycle. At the end of each billing cycle, your paid plan will automatically renew under the updated Terms, unless you decide to cancel. When you proceed for paid plan, provide accurate billing details and a valid payment method (like a credit card). This authorization allows us to charge the applicable fees. In case of automatic billing failure, you’ll receive an online invoice that needs to be settled within the specified timeframe.

Processing Fees:

Transactions on Linkdeh are facilitated by external payment processing services like PayPal, Stripe, etc, which entail a processing fee. Each payment processor has its own set of fees, terms, and conditions that you should review, accept, and adhere to. The processing fees are deducted from the transaction proceeds prior to your receipt. It’s important to note that Linkdeh is not accountable for these specific fees.

Changes in Fees and Advance Notice:

We may periodically adjust subscription or transaction fees. If any changes are made, we will provide prior notice, typically at least one month in advance. If you’re not in agreement with the updated fees, you have the option to cancel your plan before the next billing cycle begins.

13. Privacy

At Linkdeh, safeguarding your privacy and that of your Profile Visitors is our priority.
By creating your account, you confirm that if the DPA applies to you, you’ve read, understood, and consented to it. To learn about our cookie usage, refer to our Cookie Notice.

All data, including any intellectual property rights associated with it, that either we or the Platform generate from your use (or the use of profile visitors or other users) of the Platform or content (“Data”) will be owned by Linkdeh. As part of the service offered on the Platform, we might provide you with Data or visual representations of it, which we refer to as “Data Analytics.” While we make no warranties about the accuracy or completeness of the Data Analytics, we do our very best to ensure they are as accurate and complete as possible.

14. Confidentiality

From time to time, we may share information with you that is confidential (e.g. we may reveal new and upcoming features to you if you take part in beta testing with us). If we share any confidential info with you, about Linkdeh or the Platform, you must keep it secret and secure. You must also use reasonable measures to prevent others from accessing it.

15. Liability

We want to clarify that we are not responsible for how you use the Platform, and it’s crucial that you maintain backups of your own content. We are not liable for any damages resulting from actions such as downloading, installing, or utilizing the Platform, or even copying, distributing, or downloading content from it. It’s on you to ensure your data, content, and devices are adequately protected and backed up while using the Platform.

You agree to protect us from any losses that arise if you breach these Terms or if a third party raises a claim against us related to your content. Neither of us will be liable for indirect, punitive, special, incidental, or consequential damages. These might include losses in business, revenue, profits, privacy, data, goodwill, or other economic benefits. This applies whether the issue stems from a contract breach, negligence, or any other cause—even if we were aware of the potential for such damages.

Our liability to you under these Terms or related to the Platform will not go beyond the greater of the fees you paid us in the 12 month period before the liability emerged, or $100.

16. Disclaimers

We want to make a few important disclaimers within these terms. When you use Linkdeh and explore any content on the Platform, you’re doing so at your own risk. The Platform is provided to you “AS IS” and “AS AVAILABLE”, without any warranties of any kind, whether they’re express or implied, including (but not limited to), up-time or availability, or any implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, non-infringement or course of performance.

Linkdeh, its affiliates and its licensors do not make any express or implied warranties or representations, including that:

These Terms apply to the maximum extent permitted by law and nothing in them is intended to exclude, restrict or modify legal rights that you may have, which cannot be excluded, restricted or modified by contract. If these Terms are governed by the Australian Consumer Law, our liability to you for not complying with a consumer guarantee is limited to re-supply of the services or payment.

17. Third Party Services

Linkdeh collaborates with various third-party products and services. We may provide access to specific third-party features or services within the Platform, such as a payment portal or an online store. Unless explicitly stated otherwise, we do not endorse or make any warranties about any third-party products or services, nor do we offer refunds for payments made to third parties. Your use of any third-party product or service may be subject to separate terms and conditions, which you are responsible for reviewing, accepting, and complying with. Failure to accept or adhere to these third-party terms may result in the suspension, cancellation, or limitation of your account or access to these services on our Platform.
If we are required to display specific third-party terms on our website, you can find them at the bottom of this page. Additionally, our Privacy Notice includes a list of our subprocessors.
