2. The Services
2.1 The Website is intended to efficiently match volunteers (“Deeders”) who want to do great deeds with those [within the community] who seek help (“Users”). Furthermore, the Website has many other new and innovative features. Specifically, Deeders can contribute by engaging with each other on the platform, while the Website also introduces the concept of ‘DeedPerks’: a system that encourages a two-way interaction between the Deeders and the community by displaying appreciation for the volunteers’ time and fostering positive reinforcement. DeedMob stimulates its Deeders in a fun, accessible and innovative manner to contribute to and engage more with their own community, which will increase social cohesion, and ultimately will lead to more volunteering.
Other functions of the Website include:
• Deeders posting photographs and videos of their volunteering and DeedMob activities.
• Deeders providing information about their communities.
• Deeders reviewing the matches proposed by us.
• Deeders making contact, if mutually agreed, with organizations / individuals that are seeking help.
• Providing feedback and comments on the Website.
2.2 The Website may provide communication tools such as email, bulletin boards, chat areas, news groups, timeline, forums and/or other message or communication facilities (the "Communication Services") designed to enable you to communicate with others.
