As used herein, the terms “Digs,” “we,” “us,” and “our” each refer to Digs, Inc., and the terms “you” and “your” refer, in both an individual and a collective sense, to the users of the digs.co internet website and the Digs mobile application (such website and application, individually and collectively, being the “Digs Technology” and the services offered through the same, the “Services”). By using the Digs Technology, you agree to the following Terms and Conditions of Use on your own behalf and on behalf of any organization that you represent.

PLEASE READ THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF USE CAREFULLY, AS THEY CREATE A BINDING CONTRACT BETWEEN YOU AND DIGS. FURTHER, THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF USE CONTAIN AN AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE, WHICH REQUIRES THAT YOU AND DIGS ARBITRATE CERTAIN CLAIMS BY BINDING, INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION, INSTEAD OF GOING TO COURT, AND WHICH LIMITS THE AVAILABILITY OF CLASS ACTION CLAIMS.
YOU HEREBY ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT DIGS IS NEITHER A BANK NOR A FINANCIAL PLANNER, BROKER, OR ASSET MANAGER. DIGS TECHNOLOGY IS MERELY A TOOL TO ASSIST YOU IN YOUR HOME-BUYING GOALS AND DECISION-MAKING. YOU ARE SOLELY RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR SAVINGS AND SPENDING DECISIONS.
Consent to Use Electronic Signatures and Communications
To the extent permitted by applicable law, you consent to use electronic signatures and to electronically receive all records, notices, statements, communications, and other items for all Services provided to you under these Terms and Conditions of Use, and in connection with your relationship with us (collectively, the “Communications”) that we may otherwise be required to send or provide to you in paper form. By accepting and agreeing to these Terms and Conditions of Use electronically, you represent that: (1) you have read and understand this consent to use electronic signatures and to receive Communications electronically; and (2) you satisfy the minimum hardware and software requirements specified below; and (3) your consent will remain in effect until you withdraw your consent as specified below.
Your consent to receive Communications will remain in effect until you withdraw it. You may withdraw your consent to receive further Communications electronically at any time by contacting us at [email protected] If you withdraw your consent to receive Communications electronically, we will close your Digs account and return the balance in your Digs account, less any accumulated Restricted Funds (as that term is hereinafter defined), and you will no longer be able to use your Digs account or the Digs Technology. Any withdrawal of your consent to receive Communications electronically will be effective only after we have a reasonable period of time to process your withdrawal. Please note that withdrawal of your consent to receive Communications electronically will not apply to Communications provided by us to you before the withdrawal of such consent because effective.
You must keep your contact information current with us. In order to ensure that we are able to provide Communications to you electronically, you must notify us of any change in your email address by updating your profile through the Digs Technology.

- Software, currently supported by its publisher, that accurately displays PDF files;
- A computer or device with an operating system capable of supporting all of the above; and
- If you wish to print and retain any electronic Communications that we make available, a printer.
If our hardware or software requirements change, and that change would create a material risk that you would not be able to receive, access or view electronic Communications, we will give you notice of the revised hardware or software requirements and will allow you to withdraw your consent to use electronic records and signatures without imposing any fees. The withdrawal of your consent to use electronic records and signatures may result in the termination of your access to the Digs Technology and your ability to use Services.

Requirements for Use of the Digs Technology
By using the Digs Technology, you represent and warrant that all information that you provide to us is truthful, accurate, current, and complete, and that you intend to use the Digs Technology only for lawful purposes. You agree not to misrepresent your identity to us, and to promptly notify us of changes to your user information.
Availability of the Digs Technology
Digs maintains the Digs Technology subject to these Terms and Conditions of Use.
We may alter, suspend, or discontinue the Digs Technology, in whole or in part, at any time, and for any reason, without notice. We may restrict, in our discretion, access to portions of the Digs Technology for some or all users. The Digs Technology may also periodically become unavailable due to maintenance or malfunction of computer equipment or for other reasons.
We reserve the right to modify or change the Digs Technology, with or without notice, and we are not obligated to support or update the Digs Technology. You acknowledge and agree that we shall not be liable to you or any third party in the event that we exercise our right to modify, change, or discontinue the Digs Technology.
Our Services are reserved for registered users. In order to become a registered user, you must complete a registration form and select a username and password (such username and password, together, being the “Login Credentials”).
You are responsible for protecting your Login Credentials from unauthorized use. You agree to notify us immediately if you believe that your Login Credentials have been or may be used without your permission so that appropriate action can be taken. We are not responsible for losses or damage caused by your failure to safeguard your Login Credentials.
The information that you provide during the registration process, including your name and financial account information, constitutes your “User Profile”.
You agree that you will maintain and promptly update your User Profile to keep it true, accurate, current and complete. If you provide any information that is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, or if we have reasonable grounds to suspect that information that you provide is untrue, inaccurate, not current, or incomplete, we reserve the right to terminate your account and prohibit your use of the Digs Technology.
Consent to Receive Marketing Communications
As a user of the Digs Technology, you consent to receive emails and text messages from us regarding the Services that we provide, and you acknowledge that you are responsible for any data and messaging rates that may apply. We may, from time to time, send you email messages with information about upcoming events, or information about our service offerings from us and our partners. You may opt-out from receiving such correspondence by emailing [email protected], using the unsubscribe feature that may be provided in such correspondence, or by updating your notification settings through the Digs Technology.
Fees & Payments
There is a $1 per month management fee charged to all users who have connected their bank account. This unlocks the features of the app such as the contribution matching (discussed below) and the educational resources.
Digs offers a contribution matching program to users who have connected their bank account to their Digs account. Contributions made through such program (the “Restricted Funds”) are provided as an added incentive to for Digs users to save for a home. Restricted Funds may not be transferred or purchased. Restricted Funds have no cash value, and are not redeemable for cash. Restricted Funds may only be redeemed when buying a home. Restricted Funds are intended solely for use with the Digs Technology. You have no proprietary interest in Restricted Funds.
Restricted Funds may be redeemed towards a home purchase through the Digs Technology. We reserve the right to restrict, in our sole discretion, the redemption of Restricted Funds for any reason, including, without limitation, on the basis of your chosen mortgage lender. Restricted Funds cannot be retroactively applied to a previous home purchase. Restricted Funds will expire exactly five years after the date of issuance. Upon expiration, Restricted Funds will no longer be available.
Each month, Digs may issue Restricted Funds as follows:
- One dollar in Restricted Funds for every five dollars of user funds contributed, for the first fifty dollars of user funds contributed;
- One dollar in Restricted Funds for every ten dollars of user funds contributed, for the next one hundred dollars of user funds contributed in excess of fifty dollars;
- One dollar in Restricted Funds for every twenty dollars of user funds contributed, for the next two hundred dollars of user funds contributed in excess of one hundred fifty dollars; and
- One dollar in Restricted Funds for every one hundred dollars of user funds contributed, for the next one thousand dollars of user funds contributed in excess of three hundred fifty dollars.
Once a user has contributed one thousand three hundred fifty dollars in a given month, we will no longer issue Restricted Funds for user contributions during that month. This contribution matching structure resets monthly, on the first of the month.
If a user withdraws all or some of the contributions that such user has made to a Digs account, Restricted Funds issued in connection with such contributions will be forfeited ONE DOLLAR FOR EVERY FIVE DOLLARS WITHDRAWN.
You are solely responsible for any data, text, files, information, usernames, applications, links and other content or materials that you submit, use, display or share on or via the Digs Technology (collectively, “User Content”). You must not submit, upload, post, display or share any User Content that you do not have the right to copy, use or share. If you choose to provide User Content to us, you agree that you will provide accurate, complete, and current information.
Digs does not claim ownership of any User Content. By submitting User Content, however, you grant Digs a worldwide license and right to (i) copy, store and use that User Content for the purpose of providing you with our Services; (ii) modify the User Content to remove identifiers of you and any other individuals or companies, aggregate such User Content and copy, store, and use the aggregated User Content for any purpose; (iii) use User Content in perpetuity for marketing purposes in any manner and in any media format; (iv) disclose User Content when required by law to do so.
User Content Authorization. You expressly authorize Digs to access information from your bank accounts (“Your Bank Accounts”) you maintain online with third-party financial institutions with which you have customer relationships, maintain account(s) or engage in financial transactions (“Account Information”), which is included in your User Content, on your behalf as your agent. When you use the “Add Accounts” feature of the Service, you will be directly connected to the website for the third party you have identified. Digs’s third party processors will submit information including usernames and passwords that you provide to log you into such third party website(s). You hereby authorize and permit Digs to use and store information submitted by you to the Digs App (such as account passwords and usernames) to accomplish the foregoing and to configure the Services so that they are compatible with the third party sites for which you submit your information. For purposes of these Terms and Conditions and solely to provide the Account Information to you as part of the Digs App and Services, you grant Digs a limited power of attorney, and appoint Digs as your attorney-in-fact and agent, to access third party sites, retrieve and use your information with the full power and authority to do and perform each thing necessary in connection with such activities, as you could do in person. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT WHEN DIGS IS ACCESSING AND RETRIEVING ACCOUNT INFORMATION FROM THIRD PARTY SITES, DIGS IS ACTING AS YOUR AGENT, AND NOT AS THE AGENT OF OR ON BEHALF OF THE THIRD PARTY. You understand and agree that the Services are not sponsored or endorsed by any third parties accessible through the Digs App. Digs is not responsible for any payment processing errors or fees or other Services-related issues, including those issues that may arise from inaccurate Account Information.
You may not use the Digs Technology for illegal or unlawful or malicious activities, or for activities that we deem improper, for any reason whatsoever, in our sole judgment, including, without limitation, the laundering of proceeds of any unlawful activity, the financing of terrorism, the commission of fraud or market manipulation, and harassment or disparagement of any user of the Digs Technology. Your use of the Digs Technology and Services is conditioned in part on your compliance with these Terms and Conditions of Use, and your failure to comply herewith may result in termination of your access to and use of the Digs Technology and Services, as well as liability for damages caused by your noncompliance.
In addition to the foregoing, while using the Digs Technology, you may not, except as may be expressly set forth herein, (a) access or use (or attempt to access or use) another user’s account without permission, or solicit another user’s login information; (b) transmit any software or materials that contain any viruses, worms, trojan horses, defects, or other items of a destructive nature; (c) modify, adapt, sublicense, translate, sell, reverse engineer, decompile or disassemble any portion of the Digs Technology; (d) “frame” or “mirror” any portion of the Digs Technology; (e) use any robot, spider, site search or retrieval application or other manual or automatic device or process to retrieve, index, “data mine” or in any way reproduce or circumvent the navigational structure or presentation of the Digs Technology; (f) harvest or collect information about or from other users of the Digs Technology; (g) probe, scan or test the vulnerability of the Digs Technology, breach the security or authentication measures on the Digs Technology, or take any action that imposes an unreasonable or disproportionately large load on the infrastructure of the Digs Technology, such as a denial-of-service attack; (h) send or otherwise post unauthorized commercial communications (such as spam); (i) access or use any portion of the Digs Technology if you are a direct or indirect competitor of Digs, or provide, disclose or transmit any portion of the Digs Technology to any direct or indirect competitor of Digs; or (j) facilitate or encourage any violations of this Section.
Links to Other Sites
The Digs Technology may contain links to other independent third-party websites (the “Linked Sites”). Linked Sites are not under our control, and we are not responsible for and do not endorse the content of Linked Sites, including any products, information or materials contained on Linked Sites. You will need to make your own independent judgment regarding your interaction with Linked Sites. Some of the Linked Sites may constitute merchant sites, and sales through such merchant sites may generate a commission payable to us. We accept no responsibility for reviewing changes or updates to, or the quality, content, policies, nature or reliability of Linked sites, other third-party websites, or websites linking to the Digs Technology. You should review the applicable terms and policies, including those pertaining to privacy and data gathering practices, of all websites that you visit, and you should make whatever investigation you feel necessary or appropriate before proceeding with any transaction with any third party.
Mortgage Loan Request Services
Digs offers mortgage loan request Services via an online form (the “Short Form”). The Short Form does not ask for your Social Security Number. We will use the completed Short Form to attempt to match you with mortgage lenders, brokers or partners (hereinafter, collectively, the “Lenders”). Because these matches are generated from a subset of information from the Short Form, the Lenders will not be able to respond with customized conditional offers until they speak with you to get additional information.
By submitting the Short Form, you authorize Digs to provide your information to up to five (5) Lenders. By submitting the Short Form, you certify that all of the information you have provided on the Short Form is true, accurate and complete, to the best of your knowledge. The Lenders with which you may be matched may later require a Social Security Number to proceed with your formal loan application. After being matched with a Lender, you may receive a “hard inquiry” on your credit report.
Lenders may require additional information prior to providing an actual mortgage loan offer. In these situations, the Lenders will contact you directly to discuss your loan request and to discuss the specific terms of any such offer. If your submission of a Short Form eventually results in the consummation of a mortgage loan transaction with a Lender to which we have introduced you, you agree to provide information about such transaction to Digs, including, but not limited to, a HUD-1 settlement statement, and you authorize the Lenders to provide that information to Digs on your behalf. Certain state regulations require that Digs know the disposition of the mortgage loan inquiry, resulting loan product offered, rate, APR, loan amount, and other pertinent loan file information in order to adhere to licensing record retention requirements. You hereby provide express written consent for Digs and the selected Lender to share loan file information for the purposes described herein, as well as for litigation, regulatory request(s), law enforcement requests, internal analytics, and marketing purposes.
Suspension and Termination
We reserve the right to do any of the following, at any time, without providing notice to you: (1) modify, suspend, or terminate operation of or access to the Digs Technology, or any portion thereof, for any reason; (2) modify or change the Digs Technology, and any applicable policies related thereto; and (3) interrupt the operation of the Digs Technology, or any portion thereof, as necessary, to perform any maintenance or modifications, in our sole discretion.
If we suspect an unauthorized transaction related to any Digs account or that the account was created based on fraudulent information or for a fraudulent or illegal purpose, we may freeze the account, pending further investigation, and will notify you of the end result of that investigation.
You may terminate your Digs Account by notifying Digs via email at [email protected] of your intention to terminate. You may also terminate your Digs account within the Digs Technology.
Digs may terminate your Digs account at any time upon notice to the email address provided by you as part of your User Profile. In the event of termination by you or by us, Digs will delete your User Profile and deactivate your login within forty-eight (48) hours. Any funds held in your Digs accounts at the time of termination will be credited to your Funding Source. If Digs cannot connect to your Funding Source, you will need to add a new Bank Account in order to receive the funds. Any credits that attempt to post to a Digs account following closure thereof (whether by you or by Digs) will be returned as “Account Closed.”
If you do not make use of our Services for a designated amount of time, applicable laws may require Digs to report these funds in your account as unclaimed property. Should this occur, we may try to locate you using the information that you provided to us. If our attempts fail and we cannot locate you, we may be required, depending on state law, to comply with state unclaimed property laws regarding the disposition of the funds. The designated amount of time to report the funds as unclaimed varies, based on the state.
Your Digs Account
Any funds that you direct to be transferred from your Funding Source to Digs will be held by NBKC Bank for your benefit in an FDIC-insured “FBO” account. You will not be entitled to any interest or other earnings that may accrue with respect to the funds held on your behalf by Digs partner financial institution, and you hereby irrevocably assign and transfer to Digs any right or interest that you may have therein. Digs does not claim any rights to the principal amount of the funds that it holds on your behalf.
We may, from time to time, move your funds from one custodial account with NBKC Bank to another custodial account, either with NBKC Bank or another depositary institution. Any such move will not affect your ability to access the funds in your Digs account, and you will remain the legal owner of your funds held in the custodial account.
Certain limits on transfers to and withdrawals from your Digs account may be imposed pursuant to the (1) policies of NBKC Bank or any other depository institution in which we may, from time to time, place your funds, and (2) our fraud and security management system.
DIGS DOES NOT HOLD OR HAVE ACCESS TO OR ANY CONTROL OVER THE ACCOUNT ESTABLISHED FOR THE PUPPOSE OF HOLDING OR MAINTAINING YOUR FUNDS CONSTRUCTIVELY OR OTHERWISE; RATHER, DIGS PARTNER BANKS WILL AT ALL TIMES HOLD AND HAVE ACCESS TO AND CONTROL OVER ALL ACCOUNTS ESTABLISHED FOR SERVICES.
Digs employs third parties in order to provide some of its Services to you. Third-party services are used to, among other things, verify your identity, streamline on-boarding, issue cards, process transactions, retrieve financial data, and aggregate data. These third parties will have access to only that information provided by you to Digs that is needed by them to execute the specific processes for which we have engaged them. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, to the extent that Digs is permitted to undertake any action under these Terms and Conditions of Use, you agree that we may permit our third-party agents to undertake such action on our behalf.
Digs may, from time to time, provide automatic alerts when certain changes are made to your User Profile. Such alerts will be sent to the email address or mobile number you have provided. If your email address or your mobile number changes, you are responsible for informing us of that change. Alerts may include your Digs username and information about your Bank Accounts.
You understand and agree that any alerts provided to you through the Digs Technology may be delayed or prevented by a variety of factors. We neither guarantee the delivery nor the accuracy of the content of any alert. You also agree that Digs shall not be liable for any delays, failure to deliver, or misdirected delivery of any alert, for any errors in the content of an alert, or for any actions taken or not taken by you or any third-party in reliance on an alert.

NOTWITHSTANDING ANYTHING TO THE CONTRARY IN THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF USE, DIGS’S LIABILITY TO YOU FOR ANY CAUSE WHATSOEVER, AND REGARDLESS OF THE FORM OF THE ACTION, WILL, AT ALL TIMES, BE LIMITED TO FIVE HUNDRED UNITED STATES DOLLARS ($500.00), EXCEPT TO THE EXTENT SUCH LIABILITY ARISES FROM A CAUSE FOR WHICH APPLICABLE LAW DOES NOT PERMIT SUCH A LIMITATION ON LIABILITY.
DIGS RESERVES THE RIGHT TO CANCEL OR RESTRICT YOUR ACCESS TO THE DIGS TECHNOLOGY WITHOUT NOTICE TO YOU. DIGS IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR DAMAGES SUFFERED BY YOU OR ANY INCONVENIENCE CAUSED DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY BY OUR TERMINATION OF YOUR ACCESS TO THE DIGS PLATFORM OR SERVICES.

Any business transactions that may arise between Users from their use of the Digs Technology are the sole responsibility of the Users involved.
Governing Law and Forum for Disputes
These Terms and Conditions of Use, and your relationship with Digs, shall be governed by the laws of the State of Delaware, without regard to conflicts of law principles. Any dispute with Digs, or its officers, directors, employees, agents or affiliates, arising under or in relation to these Terms and Conditions of Use shall be resolved exclusively through arbitration as set forth in these Terms and Conditions of Use, except with respect to imminent harm requiring temporary or preliminary injunctive relief, in which case Digs may seek such relief in any court of competent jurisdiction.
Agreement to Arbitrate
You and Digs shall appoint as sole arbitrator a person mutually agreed by you and Digs or, if you and Digs cannot agree within thirty (30) days of either party’s request for arbitration, such single arbitrator shall be selected by the AAA upon the request of either party.
The parties shall bear equally the cost of the arbitration (except that the prevailing party shall be entitled to an award of reasonable attorneys’ fees incurred in connection with the arbitration in such an amount as may be determined by the arbitrator).
All decisions of the arbitrator shall be final and binding on both parties and enforceable in any court of competent jurisdiction. Notwithstanding this, application may be made to any court for a judicial acceptance of the award or order of enforcement.
Under no circumstances shall the arbitrator be authorized to award damages, remedies or awards that conflict with these Terms and Conditions of Use or to award punitive damages, including, but not limited to, pursuant to federal or state statutes permitting multiple or punitive awards.
Notwithstanding any provision in these Terms and Conditions of Use to the contrary, you and Digs agree that if we make any change to the arbitration procedures set forth herein (other than a change to any notice address or website link provided herein) in the future, that change shall not apply to any claim that was filed in a legal proceeding against Digs prior to the effective date of such change. Moreover, if we seek to remove the arbitration procedures from these Terms and Conditions of Use, such termination shall not be effective until thirty (30) days after the effective date of the version of these Terms and Conditions of Use not containing the arbitration procedures, and shall not be effective as to any claim that was filed in a legal proceeding against Digs prior to the effective date of such version.
The provisions of these Terms and Conditions of Use related to arbitration will survive the termination of your relationship with Digs.
If any portion of these Terms and Conditions of Use is deemed invalid, unlawful, void or for any reason unenforceable by any arbitrator or court of competent jurisdiction, these Terms and Conditions of Use, as a whole, shall not be deemed unlawful, void or unenforceable; rather, only that portion of these Terms and Conditions of Use that is unlawful, void or unenforceable shall be stricken from these Terms and Conditions of Use, and that portion deemed invalid, unlawful, void, or unenforceable shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.
Waiver, Survival, and Other Agreements
You agree that our failure to enforce any legal right or remedy provided by these Terms and Conditions of Use do not constitute a formal waiver of our rights or remedies and that those rights or remedies will still be available.
Any covenant, agreement, representation or warranty made in these Terms and Conditions of Use expressly indicated as surviving the termination of our relationship with you shall survive the termination of these Terms and Conditions of Use.
These Terms and Conditions of Use represent the entire understanding and agreement between you and Digs regarding the Digs Technology, and supersede all other previous agreements, including any prior version of these Terms and Conditions of Use.
