The Platform is a social hub designed to connect new people with the same interests, a place to find the person for you and to share information. It is made to be a fun place, but at the same time a safe and friendly website / mobile app. You agree that you will only use The Platform in a manner consistent with its purpose and which is in accordance with these terms and conditions (the “Terms”).

Users must comply with the privacy obligations, while they must abstain from using the Platform in a vulgar, offensive, illegal or obscene manner.
The User may not destroy data, cause discontent to other Users, violate the property rights of other persons, send unsolicited advertising or promotional material, commonly known as “spam”, or try to influence the performance or functionality of any of the Platform features or features to which the User gained access through the Platform. The Platform informs its customers that it will notify the competent authorities of any such violation that may come to its knowledge. It will also notify the Authorities of any data requested, in accordance with the requirements of the law.
Using our Platform gives you plenty of possibilities and you are allowed to do everything which does not contradict those Terms. Below you can find some important things you need to take into consideration:
- You should not share information that you do not want to. This may include personal contact or banking information on your profile page (“Profile”) whether in relation to you or any other person (for example, full names, home addresses or postcodes, telephone numbers, email addresses, URLs, credit/debit card or other banking details, or place of work). If you do choose to reveal any personal data about yourself to other users, whether via email or otherwise, it is at your own risk.
- You may only use the other Platform Users’ personal data to the extent that your use of it matches the Platform’s purpose of allowing people to meet one another. You may not use other Users’ information for commercial purposes, to spam, to harass, stalk or to make unlawful threats. We reserve the right to terminate your account, or prevent access to its features if you misuse other users’ information.
- Only you are authorized to access your account. You must not share your password with anyone or let anyone else access your account as this jeopardizes the security of all of the Content and personal data that you have submitted to the Platform. You are responsible for keeping your password secret and secure. The Platform is not liable for any unauthorized access to your account. If you suspect that someone has gained access to your account, you must let us know immediately.
You are obliged to avoid disclosing your account name and password to other persons, so that any unauthorized access and use will be prevented (especially, but not exclusively, to any minors). Each User must promptly notify Us, if they have reasons to believe that:
- the User name and/or the password could or may have become known to a third party, or
- there is a risk that the User name and/or the password can be used without their permission.
Some functionalities may require paid subscription. You can choose to subscribe to the Platform and to pay the applicable fees. The subscription can be done in one of the following ways:
- Through the Platform internally; or
- Through the applicable app store from which the App can be downloaded.
Eligibility for any promotions or discounts is ascertained at the time you subscribe and cannot be changed during the term of your subscription. You are responsible for reading and understanding the specific terms and conditions applicable to any promotions or discounts.
The Platform reserves the right to revise and update the applicable fees for subscriptions (including the fees set out on the relevant app stores where you subscribe to the Platform, if applicable), and the different subscription packages available, at any time at its sole discretion. Any such revision or updates to the fees will apply prospectively to any subscription entered into following the effective date of the fee revision or update.
You can pay the fees for your subscription on the Platform or the App (when available) through the options described at the payment page or app store.
The price of your subscription, as well as the currency in which your subscription is payable, will be specified during the order process, and may vary depending on your country of residence (as determined by the IP address of your device used to access the Platform).
When you purchase a subscription, you must provide us with complete and accurate payment information. By submitting payment details, you represent that you are entitled to purchase a subscription using those payment details. If we do not receive payment authorization or any authorization is subsequently cancelled, we may immediately terminate or suspend your access to your subscription. The Platform reserves the right to contact the issuing bank/payment provider and/or law enforcement authorities or other appropriate third parties if there is suspicious activity.
In addition to the subscription fee you are charged, certain banks and credit card issuers may charge a foreign transaction fee on transactions which take place abroad or in a foreign currency. You are responsible for paying any such fees.
The subscription services are not transferable, whether for free or as a sale or barter transaction, and the Platform does not recognize any purported transfers of subscription services. Accordingly, you may not trade, sell, gift or attempt to sell any subscription services for value of any kind. Any such transfer or attempted transfer is prohibited and void, and will subject your account to termination.
You agree to make all payments of fees to the Platform and clear of, and without reduction for, any withholding taxes. Any such taxes imposed on payments of fees to the Platform will be your sole responsibility, and you will provide the Platform with official receipts issued by the appropriate taxing authority, or such other evidence as we may reasonably request, to establish that such taxes have been paid.
When the option is available and chosen on the Platform, your subscription will automatically renew unless you cancel at least twenty-four (24) hours before the end of the current billing period. You will also be informed about the automatic renewal prior to the end of the current billing period with an email. Upon such cancellation, you will still be entitled to access the subscription services on the Platform for the remainder of the duration that you have paid for.
Cancellation and refund
Recurring subscription via the Platform
As you are allowed to cancel the automatic renewal at any time before the end of the current billing period, you are not entitled to receive a refund for the subscription and your access will continue until the expiration of the billing period.
Recurring subscription via the App Store
If you have subscribed for the Platform through an app store, the cancellation and refund of subscription fees will be governed by the applicable terms and conditions of that app store. The Platform itself does not provide any refund apart from the app stores.
Nevertheless, in this case we reserve the right to terminate your account, or prevent access to its features without prior notification.
Non-recurring subscription via Platform
Where you have chosen non-recurring subscription through our Platform, you may change your mind and contact us to cancel your subscription at any time. In this case you will receive a refund of the amount you have paid for the subscription minus the period in which you have used the subscription services.
Take into consideration that in order to mitigate abusive refund requests, you agree on our early termination penalty which applies in the first 10 days starting from the date of the subscription/renewal. This means that if you cancel your subscription in the first 10 days (for example day 1 or day 5 or day 9), we will charge 10 days subscription services (or the amount of 10 USD, whichever is higher) and will refund you the amount equal to the rest of the days until the end of the subscription/renewal period.
After a payment is made and following expiry of the subscription period, fees paid of subscriptions are non-refundable and there is no right to refunds or credits unless required by Applicable Laws.
Termination of account
If you are a Registered User on the Platform, you can terminate your User Account at any time.
The termination possibilities are two:
- Deactivation – in this case we just temporarily switch off your account. We save your profile information in case you later decide to restore your account. You will therefore be able to restore your account and your profile in its entirety within 36 months of deactivating it.
- Deletion – in this case we permanently erase your account and all Content and settings. With request of deletion, we have the right to delete any related Content that you have submitted or uploaded on to the Platform.
In addition, all accounts are automatically deactivated after 6 months of non-activity.
In case the deactivation and deletion of the User Account is for reasons that there is evidence of bad faith, illegal, or anti-contractual navigation and/or use of the Platform (detected by us or following a complaint by any third party) the data from the User Account will be kept for the purpose of confirming that the same User will not register again on the Platform.
Our rights as a Platform
As owner of the Platform we have to organize the safe and pleasant stay of any User. Having that said, we can solely and under our discretion:

- upon its discretion to grant access to different content on the Platform, depending on the User being with registered User Account or not or depending on the User Account permissions;

- to delete or restrict the access to any content published by the Users which is not compliant with Terms;
