  1. Dishtag

We agree to provide you with Dishtag. Dishtag includes all of the Dishtag products, features, applications, services, technologies, and software that we provide to advance our mission: to connect food lovers to dishes, restaurants to customers, and food photographers to income.

To deliver on this mission,  Dishtag is provided to:

  • Food lovers (users) for offering opportunities to discover dishes and share dish photos and food experiences, like and comment on dishes, follow friends and restaurants.
  • Restaurants (including restaurants, cafes, mobile units, private chefs and kitchens, hotels, fast food chains) for offering opportunities to create visual food content such as dish photos and menus and to connect these with food lovers and the food & beverage community.
  • Photographers for offering opportunities to create a portfolio of dish photos and menus created on behalf of Restaurants, find other photographers, and engage in interactive forums about restaurants, food photography and food styling.

Dishtag is offered to you conditioned upon your acceptance without modification of any/all the terms, conditions, and notices set forth below (collectively, the “Agreement”). By accessing or using Dishtag in any manner, you agree to be bound by the Agreement and represent that you have read and understood its terms. Please read the Agreement carefully.
