Our terms of service are meant to be user friendly and not intended to have a lawyer present to understand them. They are straight forward. If you have any questions then by all means tweet us @TheDCXIV. Without further ado…
We have no intention of ever selling your information to a 3rd party. Any and all information collected by DCXIV, LLC is solely for the purpose of DCXIV and not to redistributed. That said, DCXIV is a public website with public access. Please do not post anything on this website that you would not like to become public information. Our Connect feature has privacy controls, but the internet is a public forum and you understand that privacy is limited. We will never sell your information but that does not mean you should not be careful with what information you chose to share on our website.
We will not contact you unsolicited. All members are automatically signed up to our newsletter when you signup to the website. You may however, unsubscribe at any time. You will not receive any other contact from DCXIV.
II. Membership and Subscriptions
Membership on DCXIV is considered a donation. All subscriptions are in yearly format and will automatically rollover if you do not cancel ahead of time. The definition of a donation in our use of the term is because all of our content such as articles and our shop will always be public and will not require a donation/subscription to view. The membership perks are just that, perks. They are a bonus item given by DCXIV, LLC to say thank you and are subject to change. Your donation is only to further help fund this company help us better serve you great content without the obstruction of banner and pop up advertisements. Connect is a bonus feature available only to members as a way of saying thank you. At this time, we do not plan on opening that to the public. However, that might change if demand is great enough in the future. Our content will always remain free of charge.
All donations to DCXIV.com will be followed by DCXIV, LLC donating $5 of your signup to a charity of our choice. The current charity that we will send the funds to is listed on the donation page that period. We will donate a minimum amount of $500 at the end of the period if not met by donations. This is not a limited promotion and will continue, however the charities will be changed per period.
Giveaways from DCXIV, LLC are strictly for members, but no additional funds are required. Your donation is for the website and company not the giveaway. The giveaway is a bonus feature. In the future we may or may not do public giveaways as well, such as on Twitter or Facebook or our website for promotion. Giveaways from DCXIV are for promotion purposes only.
Giveaways are planned monthly but done completely at random as a promotional gesture from DCXIV.
Winners are selected at random from our current and active donor list unless otherwise stated. One winner per giveaway will be selected and that winner will not be eligible to win again for 90 days, in order for everyone to have a fair chance at winning. Donors are not paying to participate in giveaways. Giveaways are done as a gift to existing members. Not required and can cease at any time.
Prizes will vary from small, such as t-shirts or apparel to large such as an XBox One or Playstation 4. They will also vary depending on what is trendy and are purely subject to selection from DCXIV, LLC. We will announce our future prizes on our donation page as well as social media outlets such as Twitter and Facebook. No prize will exceed $600 and you will not have to file the prize immediately with the IRS but all prizes should be reported in the proper time frame. After a winner is selected, they will be contacted for mailing information and the prize will be sent via standard mail or ground UPS, usually directly from the source.
If giveaways are illegal or you are not eligible due to state laws where you live, your prize will be redrawn at random to another subscriber or eligible winner. Please, look up your state laws before becoming a donor and if you are not eligible please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
