Dating website terms and conditions
This terms and conditions document was created for subscription-based dating websites.
Special provisions relating to dating include clauses requiring personal profiles to be accurate and kept up to date, and a disclaimer of liability in relation to the behaviour of other users of the website, whether on or off the website. Naturally, the website operator is not in a position to guarantee that other users' profiles will be accurate.
To both protect the subscription-based business model and users, a clause in the terms and conditions prohibits users from publishing contact information, except where expressly permitted to do so by the website.
The document also incorporates detailed clauses covering, amongst other things: users' rights to use the website; acceptable uses; user accounts; subscriber benefits; charges and payments; distance selling cancellations and refunds; warranties and liabilities; breaches of the terms and conditions; and statutory disclosures.Ask about this document
