Summary

By using Dinny you agree to follow a few rules. These rules are written to make it clear what the rights and obligations are for you as host and as guest, and for Dinny. In addition, they protect Dinny from anyone who believes suing us would yield a financial benefit to them.
We provide you a clear, readable and easy to understand terms of use summary, followed by the legal boring stuff that essentially elaborates on all the details.
