These terms and conditions outline the rules and regulations for the use of DCOdes Website, located at https://www.dcodes.com.
These Terms are entered into and agreed to by DCOdes, and its Affiliates (“DCOdes” “We” or “Us”), and all Users and Vendors (as further described below) as a condition of accessing and using those Sites and Services.
Users to whom these Terms and Conditions apply may include, without limitation: potential software buyers, software vendors, software reviewers, application developers, industry insiders and media relations professionals (each a “User” or “You”).
Vendors to whom these Terms and Conditions apply include, without limitation: basic software vendors and/or upgraded or paying software vendors (each, a “Vendor” or “You”).
We reserve the right to update or otherwise modify these Terms and Conditions from time to time. You are responsible for checking these General User Terms periodically for changes and updates. Your use of DCOdes following such posted changes and updates constitutes acceptance of such changes and updates.
BY ACCESSING AND USING DCODES AND ITS SERVICES, YOU ATTEST THAT YOU HAVE READ, UNDERSTOOD AND AGREED TO BE LEGALLY BOUND BY THESE GENERAL USER TERMS. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THESE TERMS, THEN YOU SHOULD NOT ACCESS OR USE THIS WEBSITE AND ITS SERVICES.
Every vendor (basic and promoted) has a User Account and Product Listing, which they are entitled to access and selectively update via the DCOdes Administration Panel.
The DCOdes Administration Panel is a self-service tool that we make available to vendors, who may log in to update and manage their User Accounts and associated Companies and Product Listings.
Unlike User Accounts, which are created by individual users and can be removed at the User’s convenience, Vendor Product Listings are descriptions of vendor’s products (including vendor name & logo, product name & description, screenshots) created by us from publicly available content, vendor contributed modifications and any other content we create or license, which are featured in our online software directories. Vendor shall ensure that the Vendor Content it contributes or approves for its Product Listing, Profile and other Product Information complies with these General Vendor Terms and with the Guidelines for Product Listings. Listed company names are the service marks and trademarks of their respective companies.
We create Product Listings from publicly available information in order to ensure a comprehensive picture of every segment of the software belonging to the Design, Construction and Operation industry. Vendors, in case they own a Product Listing, are entitled to request access to it and upon our review they will be able to access it through the Administration Panel.
DCOdes is powered by online reviews submitted by verified users of software products, in written format (“User Reviews”). We encourage those who desire to share their experience regarding a software product, service or vendor to submit User Reviews on our Site. You acknowledge and agree that We as the website operator are merely providing a platform for these User Reviews; and that all such User Reviews represent the opinions of the reviewers of those products, services or vendors and not our own opinions. We also provide a service to assist vendors in soliciting reviews from their customers for posting on our Site.
Users cannot post their review anonymously, as there must be sufficient information for our Quality Assurance team to verify their identity before We allow their review to be published.
When participating in our Reviews Program, You (whether a software buyer, vendor or reviewer), acknowledge and agree to adhere to our hereby Terms. These ensure, without limitation, the QA process, the guidelines each review must meet as well as the processes for flagging reviews for investigation and applying penalties. They also outline the protections We put in place to maintain high-quality, trusted reviews, as well as the respective rights of reviewers and vendors. As a neutral content platform, We will only remove reviews that we in our discretion determine do not comply with our Community Guidelines.
User Reviews do not reflect the views and opinions of DCOdes, its agents and/or affiliates. Comments reflect the views and opinions of the person who post their views and opinions. To the extent permitted by applicable laws, DCOdes shall not be liable for the Comments or for any liability, damages or expenses caused and/or suffered as a result of any use of and/or posting of and/or appearance of the Comments on this website.
