  3. Content Guidelines

    Digital Dash is dedicated to fostering a responsible and legally compliant community within the Whiplash app. Users are urged to adhere to stringent content guidelines, particularly in relation to the discussion, depiction, and referencing of alcohol. Content that promotes excessive or irresponsible consumption of alcohol, targets individuals under the legal drinking age, or violates any laws related to advertising and promoting alcohol consumption is expressly prohibited. All users are encouraged to engage in discussions that promote safe and responsible drinking practices. The company retains the sole discretion to remove content or terminate accounts that violate these guidelines.
