Target group

DiGiKiNDi is aimed at parents and their children (of about kindergarten age) alike. However, you can only sign up if you are of legal age and have parental authority over the children who use the app. Your children cannot and must not register or use the app without your consent and/or physical presence.

Services

In the app, children can exchange ideas, play, and be creative together - always supported by their parents. In particular, children can send short voice messages, tell their friends what they have done today in a child-friendly way, draw pictures, take part in photo challenges, do a jigsaw puzzle, and swap puzzle pieces. Parents can create groups, invite friends, add siblings, manage the children's profiles, communicate with other parents using the parent board, and approve posts from their children. DiGiKiNDi provides a platform for this and strives to protect the users' data.

Registration

To use the service, a parent must create an account. A valid email address is required for this, and you confirm that you are an adult and a parent or legal guardian by entering the year of birth and answering a security question. You also need to enter the child's given name. Additional children profiles can be added to the parent account later. You will receive an email with a temporary password. By logging in with the email address and this password, you consent to the processing of your data and the data of your children.

Paid services

The use of DiGiKiNDi in the basic version is free and financed by advertising in areas of the app that are primarily aimed at parents. You have the option to sign up for a so-called SuperParent subscription. This will give your children 2 extra puzzle pieces per day for the jigsaw puzzle of the month. In addition, the advertising on the parent board will be removed. The SuperParent subscription is linked to your Google Play account and not to your DiGiKiNDi account. In-app purchases and subscriptions such as the SuperParent subscription are billed through Google Play. The provider is Google Ireland Limited. The terms and conditions of Google Play apply: https://play.google.com/about/play-terms

Acceptable use

You may use DiGiKiNDi only in accordance with these terms of use. Otherwise, I may take action such as disabling or deleting your account. Note that these terms of use only apply to DiGiKiNDi itself. For example, if you share an invitation code via an external service, the terms and conditions of that service will apply.

If you share unacceptable content, I may take action such as deleting that content or disabling or deleting your account. In particular, sharing the following content is prohibited:

Disclaimer

I do my best to provide you with my services and hope that they are useful and safe. However, you use them at your own risk. I provide the service on an as is and as available basis. This means that I cannot guarantee that DiGiKiNDi will always fulfill its purpose and function securely, error-free, and without interruptions or delays. I am also not liable for any defects, loss of data, or damage to your devices that may occur as a result of using the app. The exclusion of liability does not apply in case of injury to health, body, or life as well as in case of intentional or grossly negligent conduct. I am also liable for the violation of essential obligations arising from the legal relationship with the user (cardinal duties). In this case, liability is limited to the amount of typically foreseeable damage.

Termination

You can terminate your account at any time as described in the FAQ. I may also disable or delete your account if I believe that you are violating these terms of use, causing harm, or posing a risk to DiGiKiNDi or its users.

Dispute settlement and jurisdiction

The European Commission provides a platform for online dispute resolution (ODR): https://ec.europa.eu/consumers/odr. I am not willing or obliged to participate in dispute resolution procedures before a consumer arbitration board. The use of DiGiKiNDi is subject to German law. The place of jurisdiction for all disputes that may arise from the use of the service is Bielefeld, Germany.

Changes to the terms of use

I reserve the right to update or modify these terms of use as required. The current version is always available in the DiGiKiNDi app and on the website. If necessary, I will notify you of substantial changes via email and/or push notification and notice on the parent board in the app. You are responsible for checking your email and parent board notices regularly. Changes will take effect 30 days after notification. Your continued use of DiGiKiNDi after this period confirms your acceptance of the modified terms of use.
