Thank you for using DohJe!
Who can use DohJe
You may use our Service only if you can form a binding contract with DohJe, and only in compliance with these Terms and all applicable laws. When you create your DohJe account, you must provide us with accurate and complete information. Any use or access by anyone under the age of 13 is prohibited.
Our license to you
Subject to these Terms and our policies, we grant you a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable, and revocable license to use our Services.
Your DohJe Note Content
DohJe allows the sending of content, including photos and comments, between account owners and the public. Anything that you send using our Services is referred to as "User Content." You retain all rights in, and are solely responsible for, the User Content you send through DohJe.
Care providers should respond in a general, HIPAA-compliant way, which means you should not provide any Personal Health Information when replying to a DohJe Note.
We reserve the right to remove or modify User Content for any reason, including User Content that we believe violates these Terms or our policies.
Following termination or deactivation of your account, or if you remove any User Content from DohJe, we may retain your User Content for a commercially reasonable period of time for backup, archival, or audit purposes. Selecting the checkbox “My gratitude can be used to inspire others” means that the content of your DohJe Note can be shared publicly, including but not limited to, verbally, on facility displays, in print, in social media.
You cannot use DohJe to attempt to bribe or secure preferential treatment from an account owner or healthcare facility or administrator in any way. DohJe is only for showing gratitude to account owners.
You cannot use DohJe to elicit tips or any other reward as an account owner. Using our Services is a choice made by an individual. DohJe is only for receiving authentic gratitude from the public.
Additionally, you agree not to use DohJe Services for any purpose that is unlawful or prohibited by these Terms or any other purpose not reasonably intended by DohJe. By way of example only, and not as a limitation, you agree not to use the Services:

- to transmit any User Content that is infringing, libelous, defamatory, obscene, abusive, offensive, profane or otherwise violates any law or right of any third party;
- for any illegal or unauthorized purpose;
- to transmit any communication or solicitation designed or intended to obtain password, account or private information from any DohJe account owner;

Additionally, you agree that you will not: (a) take any action that imposes or may impose at our sole discretion an unreasonable or disproportionately large load on our infrastructure; (b) interfere or attempt to interfere with the proper working of the DohJe Site.
