6. Free members and exchanging contact details
This site is offered on a free-to-try basis. You may register a one, and only
one, profile and send a limited number of messages, for a certain time period,
as determined by The Owner. Should The Owner or the site software detect that you have attempted to
register more than one profile, all your profiles will be banned from the site,
regardless of whether any of these profiles may be a paid-up profile. The
abovementioned trial period should be seen by
you as a marketing or advertising initiative on our behalf, to encourage you to
become a paid up subscriber. and you acknowledge that this site
is run on a for-profit basis, and that we are dependent upon income from paid-up members.
Even though you can register for free and send free messages, you acknowledge
this to be a temporary marketing strategy to encourage you to become a fully
paid-up member and you accept this in this spirit.
Free members may not exchange any contact details with any other member, in any
way, shape or form, whether it be in messages, in their profile headlines, in
their nicknames or their profile narratives. Contact details include but are not
limited to email addresses, instant messaging IDs, Facebook names, telephone
numbers, cell phone numbers, web site URLs, member names on other sites or any
other form of contact details that are not specific to this site. Paid-up subscribers,
however, may exchange any contact details they see fit with other members. You
are hereby informed that the site removes all contact details from free
members's messages, including contact details other members attempt to send you,
even though the other members may be paid-up members. Should any member attempt
to include membership details or references to other sites on this site, he or
she will be immediately and permanently banned. Furthermore, all contact details
exchanged PRIOR to a member becoming a subscriber, shall be permanently and
irrevocably deleted. Members who become paid-up members, will have to contact
other members again in order to exchange contact details after subscribing.
7. No Warranty
This service is provided on an "as-is" basis by The Owner without warranty of
any kind, either express or implied, including, without limitation, warranties
of title and the implied warranties of merchantability and fitness for a
particular purpose. To the maximum extent allowed by law, you indemnify The
Owner against any loss you may suffer, directly or as a consequence of the using
this site. Specifically, this site offers no warranty of any nature whatsoever
that you will find any matching person who conforms to your search requirements,
or with regard to the number of persons who fall within any particular
geographical region, age group or any other search criteria that this site
affords you. This site expressly offers no warranty that you will meet a suitable partner, and offers
no guarantee whatsoever that you will receive responses to messages you send to any other member.
As stated elsewhere in these terms and conditions, the site and
its owners cannot verify that any member you may contact is who his or her
profile states and you are cautioned to take reasonable care in establishing
whom you are communicating with. Furthermore, the Owners make no guarantee of a)
error-free operation of this site, or b) uptime or availability of this site.
8. Deletion of old mails and winks
Please note that, in order to conserve space and optimise database performance,
mails, profile views and winks older than a certain number of days are automatically deleted
from the system database.
9. Subscription refunds policy
Subscribers are immediately able to exchange contact details with other members.
There is no effective way for the owners of the site to monitor this and it
would therefore be open to abuse if we were to allow refunds - a member could
subscribe, exchange contact details the other members of his choice, and then
ask for a refund immediately afterwards. In this sense, the situation is similar
to most music stores not being willing to exchange CDs after sale, because it's
too easy to copy and then ask for a refund and accordingly also open to abuse.
Therefore, as a matter of policy, we do not offer any refunds.
Furthermore, as stated in Item 7 above, we do not offer any warranty regarding
site uptime, nor do we offer any guarantee that you will meet a suitable person
on the site, or that you will receive a response to the messages you send to
other members. None of the above shall therefore be grounds for a refund, and
you agree to this when you purchase a subscription.
10. Removal of your profile
As soon as you send a message to another member on this site, the site emails
the other member to inform him or her that you have contacted him or her. If you
were to remove your profile after sending a message to another member, this would cause a problem with data integrity -
the other member would receive a notification that you have contacted him or
her, but because you've removed your profile, there would not be a message from
you in the other member's site inbox. Also, when the other member responds to
you, he or she would think you had received his or her message, but if you were
to remove your profile subsequent to this, this would not be the case.
Therefore, to ensure data integrity, even if you delete your profile, your data
is retained for a period of 3 months before it is finally deleted.
11. No personalized support
Due to the impossibility of providing user support to the large number of
members using this site, except for the help documentation as provided for on the Frequently Asked
Questions (FAQ) page, the Owner will not provide you with any further manuals
or system documentation. Furthermore, you agree that you will not receive any
telephonic, written or any other form of one-on-one support or training from the
Owner. The above will apply even if there is a problem or bug in the site's
database or software. You agree that your usage of this site will be on an as-is
