About Recca

Recca is a community-driven platform for giving and getting recommendations, accessible primarily via the web property located at recca.co.

Users can ask for recommendations from their contacts and the wider community by creating prompts across a number of different category types (e.g., shopping, entertainment, etc.). Each prompt is integrated with a relevant data source, which enables us to streamline the recommendation experience. Users who wish to answer a prompt need only to type the name of whatever they want to recommend (or in certain situations, provide a web address). Recca then collates recommendations to provide live leaderboards for each prompt.

The value of a user's experience is largely driven by other users who contribute their experience and perspectives in a safe, secure and fun environment. To best preserve the quality of this network, by accessing or using our Services, you agree to be bound by these Terms. If you do not agree to the applicable Terms, you may not access or use our Services.

Please refer to Recca's Privacy Policy for information about how we collect, use, and share information about you when you use our Services.
