Terms of service when registering on Daily Maverick

You’ve registered on Daily Maverick, and as with all things in life, there are rules of engagement that apply.

Please read these carefully before you start using your account. By using our website or services, you agree to be bound by these terms.

As part of the registration process, you would’ve created log-in credentials by selecting a password and providing an email address or by linking another account, such as Facebook or Google.

The account you registered is for your use only and we would appreciate it if you did not share your log-in credentials with anyone else. It’s your responsibility to keep your password confidential.

Don’t abuse log-in credentials to impersonate someone else, use another person’s log-in credentials or select credentials that are, in our judgement, offensive. All of the above may lead to the suspension of your account and eternal damnation. Okay, maybe just suspension, but do you really want to risk eternal damnation?

By registering, you agree that Daily Maverick may send you communications that we think you’ll appreciate. These include editorial newsletters, marketing emails and the occasional notification about new services and products or special offers.

We don’t share your information with anyone else, or use it to track you across the web. That’s just something Silicon Valley overlords and Vladimir Putin are interested in. We’re kinda busy fighting for our democracy. As always, we will abide by our Privacy Policy and applicable law, but if you don’t want to hear from us anywhere, you can opt out of a newsletter as it arrives, or contact us directly at [email protected]

We will also, from time to time, send you service communications. These are necessary to manage your account, and unfortunately you won’t be able to opt out as long as you have an account. Think of it as the car-service notification on your dashboard – you really don’t want to miss those.

You may terminate your account at any time by emailing us at [email protected]. We will be saddened and hold a vigil for our dearly departed friends. But we will hold your spot for when you want to come back.

Last, we may amend these terms from time to time because, as we know, the only constant in life is change. If we do, we will publish the changes on our site and they will become effective immediately. It is up to you to visit our site regularly to check whether any changes have been made. By continuing to use our website or services after we publish changes to our terms, you agree to be bound by the changed terms. Now go forth and be enlightened! Or just, well, read.
