Dropd is a Live stream shopping platform which connects brands and merchants, content creators ("influencers") and consumers ("end-users," "users") through entertaining shopping experiences by combining live video, real-time customer interaction, product auctions and a seamless online shopping for the highest engagement and conversion. Dropd will advertise or promote the relevant Goods based on the “product placement” arrangement between the content creators and the merchants. These terms govern the use of the service to perform these transactions.

Our Privacy Policy explains how we and some of the companies we work with collect, use, share and protect information in relation to our mobile services, web site, and any software provided on or in connection with Dropd services (collectively, the "Service"), and your choices about the collection and use of your information.

By using our Service you understand and agree that we are providing a platform for end users to post content, including photos, comments and other materials ("User Content"), to the Service and to share User Content publicly. The kind of content that users are able to post is based upon the privilege granted to the user as some user will not be able to post certain kinds of content. The nature of how the user content is displayed on the app means that other Users may further search for, see, use, or share any of the User Content that is made publicly available through the Service, consistent with the terms and conditions of this Privacy Policy and our Terms of Use (which can be found at http://www.dropd.live/terms.html).
