This user Agreement is a contract between you (“Members” or “Users”) and DComply (“us” or “we”), governing your use of your DComply account and the DComply services. You must be in the United States and have a U.S. bank account to use the DComply services.
You agree to comply with all of the terms and conditions in this user agreement. The terms include an agreement to resolve disputes by arbitration on an individual basis.
We reserve the right to amend this agreement at any time without notice, subject to applicable law. By continuing to use our services after any changes to this user agreement become effective, you agree to abide and be bound by those changes. If you do not agree with any changes to this user agreement, you may close your account.
DComply is a community for divorced, separated, and single parents who have a child or children in common with another parent wherein financial support is owed. The application functions as a neutral venue where members may connect regarding child support needs and obligations. Specifically, DComply uses third party payment service providers to aid divorced, separated, or unmarried parents with children in an effort to help streamline and navigate their financial support obligations. We are not involved in or a party to the actual transaction between Members. As a result, We have no control over the existence, quality, accuracy, safety, or legality of the transactions that take place on our application, the accuracy of representations made by the other party to your transaction, the ability of Members to pay for any goods and services, and we make no representations or warranties and are not liable or responsible for the actions or inactions of Members.
While it is our intent to provide a simple and straightforward explanation of what information DComply collects from its users, we rely upon third parties to facilitate the actual exchange of money from one parent (“Member” or “user”) to another. DComply does not receive, hold, or transmit funds. DComply utilizes third party software platforms including Dwolla and Plaid to allow you to send fund transfer instructions to their financial institution partners. Therefore it is important to consult with Dwolla and Plaid terms and conditions. Essentially, these third party software platforms give members the ability to send and receive electronic payments.
Please note that this Agreement only covers the information that DComply collects, uses, and shares, and it does not explain what our developers do with any end user information we provide to them (or any other information they may collect about you, their end user). This Agreement also does not cover any websites, products, or services provided by others. We encourage you to review the privacy policies or notices of our developers or those third parties for information about their practices.
We may change this Agreement from time to time. If we make changes, we will post the new Agreement on DComply’s websites and/or on the application. We will also notify our developers of any material changes in accordance with our developer agreements, as they are generally best positioned to notify their end users about such changes to this Policy, as appropriate.
By accessing and using DComply’s Service, you agree to comply with all the terms of this Policy. This Policy will apply each time you access or use the Service. If you are agreeing to the terms of this Policy on behalf of an organization or entity, you represent and warrant that you are so authorized to agree on behalf of that organization or entity. This Policy is important; please read it carefully.
We may change this Policy at any time in our discretion. If we make any change to this Policy that we deem to be material, we will make a reasonable effort to inform you of such change. If you don’t agree with the change, you are free to reject it; unfortunately, that means you will no longer be able to use the Service.

You agree to indemnify and hold DComply and our affiliates, officers, directors, agents, and employees harmless from any claim or demand, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, made by any third party due to or arising in any manner in whole or in part out of your use of the application, including but not limited to claims that any of your Submitted Information includes materials owned by third parties without authorization, was defamatory or harassing, or otherwise violated the rights of any third party.
You shall comply with all applicable domestic and international laws, statutes, ordinances and regulations regarding your use of our service and your listing, shipping, transporting, and solicitation of offers to ship and transport items.
By visiting or using the application, you agree that the laws of the State of New Jersey, without regard to principles of conflict of laws of any state or jurisdiction, will govern these Terms and any dispute of any sort that might arise between you and DComply or any of our affiliates. With respect to any disputes or claims not subject to arbitration (as set forth below), you agree not to commence or prosecute any action in connection therewith other than in the state and federal courts of New Jersey, and you hereby consent to, and waive all defenses of lack of personal jurisdiction and forum non conveniens with respect to, venue and jurisdiction in the state and federal courts of New Jersey.
Disputes between you and DComply regarding the application and our services should be reported to
. We will attempt to resolve any disputes you have with us. Because We are a neutral venue We are not responsible for resolving any disputes between you and members regarding services or transactions. Any claim or controversy arising out of or relating to your use of this Application, to the goods or services provided through DComply, this Agreement, or to any acts or omissions for which you may contend DComply is liable, including but not limited to any claim or controversy as to arbitrability (“Dispute”), shall be finally, and exclusively, settled by arbitration. The arbitration shall be held before one arbitrator under the commercial arbitration rules of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) in force at that time. The arbitration shall be conducted in Essex County, New Jersey. The arbitrator shall be selected pursuant to the AAA rules. Should no AAA rule regarding New Jersey selection of an arbitrator be in effect, the Member shall select an arbitrator from a panel of arbitrators acceptable to DComply. In any arbitration, the parties will split the cost of the filing fee, plus the costs associated with the first day of arbitration, with the remaining costs of arbitration paid by the non-prevailing party, provided, however, that in Maine any cost to the consumer shall be limited to the cost of filing a court case. To begin the arbitration process, a party must make a written demand therefore.
Any judgment upon an award rendered by the arbitrators may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction in New Jersey. The arbitrators shall not have the power to award damages in connection with any Dispute in excess of actual compensatory damages and shall not multiply actual damages or award consequential, punitive or exemplary damages, and each party irrevocably waives any claim thereto. The agreement to arbitrate shall not be construed as an agreement to the joinder or consolidation of an arbitration under this Agreement with an arbitration of disputes or claims of any non-party, regardless of the nature of the issues or disputes involved. The parties agree to arbitrate solely on an individual basis and this agreement does not permit class arbitration or any claims brought as a plaintiff or class member in any class or representative arbitration proceeding. The arbitral tribunal may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding.
THIS AGREEMENT PROVIDES THAT ALL DISPUTES BETWEEN YOU AND DCOMPLY WILL BE RESOLVED BY BINDING ARBITRATION. YOU THUS GIVE UP YOUR RIGHT TO GO TO COURT TO ASSERT OR DEFEND YOUR RIGHTS. YOU ALSO GIVE UP YOUR RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN OR BRING CLASS ACTION LAWSUITS. YOUR RIGHTS WILL BE DETERMINED BY NEUTRAL ARBITRATORS AND NOT A JUDGE OR JURY. You are entitled to a fair hearing, but the arbitration procedures are simpler and more limited than rules applicable in court. Arbitrator decisions are enforceable as any court order and are subject to very limited review by a court. By using DComply’s goods and services or the application, you consent to these restrictions.
Should a Dispute arise and should the arbitration provisions herein become inapplicable or unenforceable, or in any instance of any lawsuit between you and DComply, the parties agree that jurisdiction over and venue of any suit shall be exclusively in the state courts sitting in Essex County, New Jersey and federal courts sitting in Newark, New Jersey.

We utilize several different security techniques to protect data from unauthorized access, but, except as specified in a Terms of Purchase, We cannot guarantee the security of our system. Except as specified in a Terms of Purchase, we also do not guarantee uninterrupted or secure access to our system, as the operation of our Application can be interrupted by numerous factors outside of our control.
