How our service works
To use and access our Service, you need to create an account either by connecting with your Facebook, Google or Twitter accounts or by creating an account on Shopcade directly with your email. This can be done via our website www.shopcade.com or by loading the Shopcade mobile application on your mobile or tablet device.
You may also link other Social Nework Services such as Instagram to your Shopcade account. These Terms of Service are separate from, and in addition to, any Terms of Service or similar agreement between you and a Social Network Service ("SNS"), such as Facebook, (collectively, the "SNS Terms"), which constitutes a separate agreement and relationship, but which may affect your access to or use of our Services. The SNS Terms cover your access to and use of all SNS network and services, which may include access to some of our Services. However, Shopcade has no control over SNSs ,nor any corporate affiliation with the owners of SNS. Because our Services work in relation with SNS networks and services, the SNS may, at its discretion, take action to alter or deny the SNS services, including your access to Shopcade Services and/or the removal or disabling our Services in relation to the SNS's network. Shopcade is not liable to you or any party for any interruption in the availability of or access to our Services caused by an SNS or by your breach of the SNS Terms.
Once you create your account, our Service works as follows:
Approved partner merchants ("Partner Merchants") make their products available to us and these are listed in our online catalogue ("the Products").
We actively monitor our online catalogue, and do our best to remove Restricted Products including, but not limited to, alcoholic products, products of adult nature, smoking products, weapon based products, certain categories of health products, medicines and medical devices, and weight control and slimming products ("Restricted Products"). This is done by a combination of automated filters and manual reviews. However, in the unlikely event that you should come across a Restricted Product, please report it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
On Shopcade, you can find and "like" Products, recommend them to your friends and other Shopcade users and get deals on these products.
When you create a Shopcade account, Shopcade automatically creates a page called “Your Profile”, also referred to as "Your Shopcade". On this page you can collect all the Products you love and organize them in Product Lists.
Whenever you “Like” a Product on Shopcade, this Product is automatically added to Your Shopcade. You can also add a Product to Your Shopcade from anywhere on the web, by using the Shopcade bookmarklet or the “Add a product” button on the site.
You can create Product Lists to organize the Products you have collected in Your Shopcade.
You can write a small text in the “Describe what you’re into” box in Your Shopcade and a description for every Product List in Your Shopcade. You have the right to link back to an external website in these text boxes. We may moderate your text, we may amend or remove any content which we consider in contravention with our Terms of Service in general and our Content Standards in particular.

We love how Shopcade is not only a place to shop but also where you can find like-minded friends and have a good natter with them! We wish to make Shopcade as fun as we can for you so we’ve put together a few Shopcade commandments to obey, to make sure you have the best experience possible.
By using Shopcade and getting involved you have agreed to the following:
1. Thou shall be polite Politeness goes a long way! Treat others how you’d like to be treated, yes that includes paying others a compliment every now and then *hint, hint* ;)
2. Thou shall be respectful R-E-S-P-E-C-T, find out what it means to me! This one goes without saying, we’ve got LOADS of respect for our users from all walks of life and we expect you to as well - everyone is entitled to their own opinion!
3. Thou shall have fun If your fun is interrupted by a bad experience on Shopcade, please flag it to us on our Community Forum where a member of the team will get back to you as soon as poss.
4. Thou shall upload appropriate content On Shopcade, we allow you to upload your own pictures and content to your profile, comments and other areas. So keep it clean and relevant, that means no random pics of your armpit (or any other body part) please.
5. Thou shall follow your faves We love to follow cool brands and awesome users on Shopcade and we think you should too! You can follow your friends and fave trendsetters so you stay up to date on all things shopping. Perfecto.
6. Thou shall report anything you’re weary of If you’re unsure about something on Shopcade feel free to flag it (quite literally - we have a flag ;)) to our team on our Community Forum, we’ll be sure to get back to you asap.
7. Thou shall not restrict yourself Yep, we now have private messaging on Shopcade so you can PM your friends - don’t just limit yourself to this though! Comment on lists and share stuff you love just by tagging others. (Just use their username @insertnamehere to tag)

9. Thou shall stay safe This means being smart and not posting your personal details on the site (personal details include: email addresses, bank details, home addresses, or phone numbers). You wouldn’t write your passwords on your forehead and walk around like that, so why do it online? :)
10. Thou shall respect copyright and confidential property Passing off something as your own when it really isn’t is just plain weird. Don’t use anyone else’s photos, text or videos as your own, they’ve put effort into creating those! If you do feel inspired then please be sure to credit the content owner in the blurb.
11. Thou shall be fair to other members of the community Be fair to other members of the community. No-one likes a know it all, so make sure you treat others as you would wish to be treated.
