By signing in to the Digle Service, you are acknowledging that you have read, understand and accept theDigle Terms. The Digle Terms are available in the English language only.
The Digle Service comprises an online platform through which Searchers may submit Searches and through which Finders may submit Finds. You understand that We are an intermediary only and that while Our provision of the Digle Service makes use of an algorithm for the purposes of helping to sort the most appropriate Finders to complete your search, We take no responsibility for, have no control over, and, to the maximum extent permitted by law, exclude liability for, the conduct of Finders or Searchers and their respective use of the Digle Service.

Section 17 of the Digle Terms includes a limitation on Our liability to you.
You may download the App or access the Website free of charge, but in order to submit a Search you will need to purchase Credit(s) in accordance with section 7.
You will need to create an account with Us to access or use the Digle Service as either a Searcher or a Finder.
By submitting a Find, responding to a Search and/or acting in any other capacity as a Finder you are acting exclusively on your own behalf and agree not to do anything which may create a false impression that you are employed by, endorsed by or acting on behalf of Us.
By submitting a Search, you acknowledge that any Find is submitted to you from a user acting independently in his or her capacity as a Finder, who is in no way acting under Our control, on Our behalf of or under Our endorsement.
Your account is personal to you and may not be transferred to or shared with others.You are responsible for keeping your account and login details secure and are responsible for all activities that are carried out under them.

You also promise Us that all information and details provided by you to Us (including on registration for an account) are true, accurate and up to date in all respects and at all times. You can update or correct your personal details at any time from the ‘My Account" section of the App and Website.
You acknowledge that when acting as a Finder, you shall exercise reasonable care, time and skill and shall not intentionally submit any response to a Search (including in the delivery of a Find) or representation of a particular Skill, which is fraudulent, false or misleading.
7. Purchasing Credits
You acknowledge that in order to request Searches, you will need to purchase credits (“Credits”)either through the App or the Website.
All Credits are valid for a period of 12 months only following the date of purchase, and expire after this period.
Details of the prices for the purchase of Credits are set out at the "Money" tab of the App and Website.
On each occasion, when purchasing Credit(s),you acknowledge that by ticking the relevant tick-box prior to any purchase of Credit(s) (as applicable), and/or by completing the purchase process, you expressly consent to the supply of such Credit(s) immediately and that by consenting to such supply, you acknowledge that you lose your right to cancel such transaction within the 14 day cooling-off period provided by law.
Where you purchase Credits, payment will be debited from your credit or debit card account (as applicable) upon or shortly after you have confirmed your order by clicking on the Payment button.Once you have purchased Credits in accordance with this section 7, such purchase is non-refundable.
Shortly after confirming each order to purchase Credit(s), you will receive an email notification of the purchase you are making (the "Notification") and an entry will also be made in the "Transaction History" section of the "Money" tab of the App and Website.
Additional information with respect to each transaction is also available in the "Transaction History" section of the "Money" tab of the App and Website, confirming that when you make a purchase Credit(s), and that you expressly consent to the supply of the Credit(s) immediately and acknowledge that you lose your right to cancel such purchase within the 14 day cooling-off period provided by law. The Notification indicates Our acceptance of your offer to purchase Credit(s).
When purchasing Credit(s) with a credit or debit card, you confirm that the credit or debit card that is being used is yours. All credit and debit card holders are subject to validation checks and authorisation by the card issuer. If the issuer of your card refuses to authorise payment, We will not accept the transaction and We will not be responsible for any failure to add Credit(s) to your account. We are not obliged to inform you of the reason for the refusal. We are not responsible for your card issuer or bank charging you as a result of Our processing of your credit or debit card payment in accordance with your requested Credit(s). If you dispute any payments taken by Us from your payment card, We recommend you first contact Us to discuss the relevant transaction. If We receive a charge back in respect of any payment made for Credit(s) properly requested or used by you, We will not be responsible for any failure by Us to deliver, or to continue delivering, the applicable Credit(s).
8. Withdrawal of Funds
Once you have then accumulated, through your use of the Digle Service as a Finder, a total of Credits with a real money value of at least the withdrawal threshold specified at the relevant time in the "Withdraw" functionality set out in the "Money" tab of the App and Website, currently $30 (the "Withdrawal Threshold"), you may withdraw the real money value of such Credits into your designated bank account using the "Withdraw" functionality. All payments to users pursuant to such withdrawal of Credits shall be made in US dollars.
Once you have submitted a request to make a withdrawal, you will see a confirmation message that the transfer has been actioned and your Credits will immediately clear to the balance of the amount not withdrawn, and such withdrawal will be evidenced in the "Transaction History" section of the "Money" tab of the App and Website.
It is your responsibility to submit the correct bank account details for payment of withdrawals. We cannot repay payments made by us to another account due to incorrect account details provided by you. If a payment is unsuccessful and returned to us by Our bank payment processor, we will investigate such payment, notify you and request corrected bank account details. Such unsuccessful payments will only be credited to your corrected account details once we have been notified by Our bank payment processor that the payment has been successfully retrieved.
If, upon manual review, there is evidence of fraud, malfunction or malpractice, We may void certain Finds and winnings and amend accounts accordingly.
You agree and acknowledge that any applicable taxes and fees in connection with any funds returned to you pursuant to your activities as a Finder are your sole responsibility.
9. Spending Credits
In order to submit a Search, you will need to have available Credit(s) in your account and click the "Digle a new search" button. By clicking this button, you submit a Search, which may then be accepted by a Finder by confirming that they are "on it".
Upon submitting a Search as described above, you will spend a Credit or Credits (as you prescribe at the time of submitting the Search). This submission of a Search is revocable at any point until another user, in his or her capacity as a Finder, has confirmed acceptance of the Search by confirming that they are "on it".At which point, the submission of the Search can no longer be revoked or amended.
From the moment a Searcher submits a Search, , the Credit(s) the Searcher offers for the Search are temporarily held by Digle until a Find is submitted to Searcher, which the Searcher approves. In the event that no Find is submitted to the Searcher within the specified time period for that Search, the Credit is returned to the account of the Searcher.
10. Crediting of Credits to Finder Accounts
Each Search may be accepted by up to 3 Finders, and once Finds have been submitted within the relevant period specified in the Search by those Finders who have accepted a particular Search, the Searcher responsible for submitting that Search will then either, at its discretion: (i) approve one of the Finds submitted, or (ii) reject all Finds (if none of the Finds are satisfactory).
If you, acting in your capacity as a Finder, submit a Find, which is approved by the Searcher, your account will be credited with the Credit(s) for that Search.
For the avoidance of doubt, if a Finder submits a Find, but such Find is not approved by the Searcher, the Finder does not receive the Credit(s) allocated to such Find, and such Credit(s) are retained by Digle. In the event of any dispute, the allocation of Credit(s) shall be resolved in accordance with the Digle Rules.
