TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF USE
– Last updated on February 2, 2018
Follow the golden rule (don't be an asshole) and don't break the law.
The Short Version
playdate is a community of 21+ years old legal medicinal/recreational marijuana users. Users may not use playdate to conduct any form of illegal activity, break state or federal law, or otherwise endanger the well-being of others. Basically, consume legally and don't sell any marijuana or furnish it to minors. To do so will be deemed an immediate violation and your profile will be removed at the sole discretion of Make Play Date Inc. Any violation of local or international laws or other use banned in our terms of service will not be tolerated. Users are encouraged to report offending members.
While some states within the United States have passed laws legalizing either medicinal or recreational use of cannabis, it should be stated that under Federal Law cannabis is still classified as an illegal substance. Certain activities involving marijuana remain illegal under US federal laws. Such activities include but are not limited to: (i) distribution of marijuana to minors, (ii) transporting marijuana from states where it is legal to other states, (iii) driving under the influence and other adverse public health consequences, (iv) growing marijuana on public lands, (v) marijuana possession or use on federal property, and (vi) other criminal activity or violence associated with the sale of cannabis. playdate cannot and does not condone its users breaking the law.

The safety of our users is very important to us. There are steps that everyone can follow to ensure their safety while using playdate. Please take a few minutes to read these tips.
Keep your financial information private
Ignore any request to send money or provide (or receive) services – even if the person claims to be in an emergency – and report it to us immediately. Never give out financial or personal information such as your social security number, credit card number, or bank information.
Protect your personal information
You are in control of your playdate experience at all times – remain anonymous until you feel ready. Be careful about sharing personal information, such as your full name, phone number, email and address. Protect your identity until you are comfortable enough with someone to share it. Also, leave any personal contact information out of your playdate profile. Note: playdate will never send you an email asking for your username and password information. Any such communication should be reported immediately.
You can also check the U.S. Federal Trade Commission's advice on avoiding online scams available on their website.Report suspicious users - Please report anyone who violates our Terms and Conditions of Use. Examples of our Terms and Conditions of Use violations include:
Meeting in person
First meetings are exciting, but always take precautions and follow these guidelines to help you stay safe:
Get to know the other person before meeting them offline
Get to know someone through chat before disclosing personal information or meeting in person. We don't conduct criminal background checks on our users, so it’s up to you to do your own research and remain cautious.
Always meet in public
Meet for the first time in a populated, public place – never in a private or remote location, and never at your home or apartment.
Tell a friend - Inform a friend or family member of your plans
Tell them who you are meeting, where you are going and when you will return. Bring your phone with you.
Drive yourself to and from the first meeting or get a rideshare if under the influence
Be in control of your own ride – even if you take a rideshare. Securing your own ride is important. Even if the person you're meeting volunteers to pick you up, do not get into a vehicle with someone you don’t know and trust, especially if it’s the first meeting. Following these guidelines will help keep you safe and enjoyable.
