GiveNTake reserves the right to remove any content posted on the website by its users and to cancel or not allow the use of the site by any person.
In order to post an ad under the category "Contribution of time and experience," it must meet the following criteria:
- The ad cannot be a display ad and the ad body cannot place a website address.
- The ad should explain exactly what service is provided free of charge.
- The ad should contain the word "free" or "free of charge" or "for no consideration", and in the context of the service provided.
- In general, the ad in the project is not allowed to be discriminatory (ie, conditioning the provision of the service to one person or another according to ethnic affiliation, sex, economic situation, sector, etc.). In the “Time and Experience Contribution” category, there are the following exceptions:
- Because a service is something that is being repeated over and over again, one can define that he wants to devote his time only to needy people who have an "objective" status (such as soldiers, students, the disabled, pensioners, single-parent families, etc.). A general definition of "needy" is not permitted, since it is impossible to distinguish objectively who is needy and who is not.
- When it comes to providing more intimate services, such as massage, shiatsu, etc., a man cannot offer his service to women, and a woman cannot offer the service to men. The ad must also be explicitly listed as a caregiver or caregiver, and the treatment is intended for men or women accordingly.
- If the service includes costs on the part of the service provider, it is permitted to ask for the cost price only (raw materials, spare parts, fuel ...)
- In offering a trucking service, you can ask for the vehicle's wear as part of the cost price.
- In offering treatment / training / training services, at least 3 meetings must be offered without a free commitment, so that this will not be considered self-advertising.
In general, we do not see trading objects from the site as a negative thing, because this is also the way the project is achieved:
objects that lie unused have a new use, the buyer obtains them at a cheaper price, the merchant finds another way to make a living from objects that the sellers did not intend to sell in the first place everyone.
The problem begins when traffickers are motivated to get things from other users on the site by intensive exploitation of new objects offered for delivery to the site.
Therefore, conditions were set for trading objects from the GiveNTake site:
- Any person who wishes to trade objects on the GiveNTake site is obliged to send a request to the site staff and to receive approval from us. The application must be accompanied by the e-mail address with which he registered to the site and their telephone number.
- The person may request to receive only objects that are on the site over a week or objects in the body of the ad stating that the object should be delivered / vacated immediately.
- The person must inform the owner of the object that they wish to sell it to the initial request, in order to ensure that it is in the order of the owner of the object.
A person who trades objects from the site contrary to the terms set forth in the regulations will be suspended from the site, and may also expose himself to a legal claim.

The entire GiveNTake project is based on the good will of its participants. In the spirit of this atmosphere, we present you with a code of ethics, which will ensure the use of the website.
- People give away things of their own accord -this is not at all obvious. Be sure with the object that the object and condition match what you are looking for, and if you decide to take it, do not judge it based on its condition.
- Coordination of the transfer of the object - Although there are people who are ready and willing to assist in the transport for delivery of the object however, the responsibility for the transfer of the object is first and foremost the recipient’s.
- Reference to abundance - sharing objects is a way that offers abundance to all of us. Getting the things we need or want is a welcome act. Take everything you need or want from those with an abundance. What you do not really need or want, leave to others.
- Appropriate ads - GiveNTake is a platform for free giving. Please do not post sale ads, replacement ads, delivery ads with a "nominal price", advertising ads, or ads offering an object to deliver. Appropriate to the spirit of the site, informed to us through the button "Ad inappropriate" in the body of the ad, and we will download the ad.
- Be honest - to hand over objects is certainly commendable, but when posting ads, make sure that the condition of the object described in the ad corresponds to the state of the object in your hand, because if not, you may insult and disappoint the recipient of the object. Although the objects are free, they should not be accepted with mixed feelings. So be honest, and describe in the ad the true state of the object so that there will be no surprises, one way or the other.
- Smile - This project demonstrates to us the good aspects of human beings. Whenever you contact someone else, whether it's a message, an email mail, via phone, or a face-to-face, do it kindly and with a smile.
- Express your gratitude - As stated in the first section, it is not at all obvious that people give things of their own accord. Be sure to thank the person who gave you something without asking for anything in return. You can confess verbally or through a symbolic gift, and you can even send a nice greeting card.
Have fun for all of us!
