We are building SmallDiscovery to make the world more open and transparent to both the local business owner and the local consumer. SmallDiscovery promotes openness and transparency by giving individuals greater power to share and connect, and certain principles guide SmallDiscovery in pursuing these goals. Achieving these principles should be constrained only by limitations of law, technology, and evolving social norms. We therefore establish these Principles as the foundation of the rights and responsibilities of those within the SmallDiscovery Service.
People should have the freedom to find what they need, when they need it, and in the place that they need so long as a business is willing to part with that product on agreeable terms.
Businesses owners should have the right to share and showcase their products to the local consumers around them. This helps to establish their businesses as a part of the community, and it enriches –through both economic and awareness- everyone around them.
Every Person should access to information within the SmallDiscovery’s website regardless of the Person's primary activity or any other personal characteristic of that person. There should be a single set of principles, rights, and responsibilities that should apply to all People using the SmallDiscovery Service, and this set of rights should be only limited by the infringement upon another person rights to safety and security.
People should have the freedom to build trust and reputation through their identity and connections, and should not have their presence on the SmallDiscovery Service removed for reasons other than those described in SmallDiscovery's Terms and Conditions.
People should be able to use SmallDiscovery to establish a presence in their community, connect with local businesses, showcase products sold, and share information with whomever they choose. Every Person should be able to use the SmallDiscovery Service regardless of his or her level of participation or contribution.
The rights and responsibilities of SmallDiscovery and the People that use it should be described in a statement of Terms and Conditions, which should not be inconsistent with these Principles.
SmallDiscovery should publicly make available information about its purpose, plans, policies, and operations. SmallDiscovery should have a process of notice and comment and a system of voting to encourage input and discourse and to help direct the Service to best service SmallDiscovery’s customers: the local consumer and the local business owner.
The SmallDiscovery Service should transcend geographic and national boundaries and be available to everyone in the world.
