MiKandi Terms of Use, Conditions & Stuff...

Before we get into all the legal mumbo jumbo that's required, we'd like to go over some of our 'house rules'.

Rule #1: Adults Only - No Exceptions

This goes without saying, this site and the services provided by MiKandi is intended for adults only. This means You MUST be at least 18 years old and/or over the legal age to view explicit content within the jurisdiction You reside. Otherwise, You are not permitted to use the website or download the MiKandi App Store.

Rule #2: No Douchebaggery Permitted

We've seen this happen before. Picture this. There's a little kid in the local candy store getting a lollipop. He just spent his week's allowance to buy it and he's really looking forward to eating it. But he never gets the chance, because some jerk named Bubba (whose 5 years older btw) snatches it from him! Douchebaggery.

The Symptoms of Douchebaggery:

  • Negative commenting tourettes
  • Spamming
  • Breaking our Terms of Use
  • Abusing the use of our site
  • Breaking the law

Don't let us catch You! 'Cause we'll find Youuu!

Rule #3: No Spam Allowed

You all know the deal, so just don't do it. The only type of Spam we're cool with is the kind You get in the tin can. (Hey, don't knock it till You try it!)

Caution: Reading past this point may induce boredom.

Without further adieu...
