You should read these terms in full because they apply every time you visit the website. But just in case you ever need a quick reminder of the important points, here’s a brief summary:
If you are under 18-years old and the age of majority where you live, unfortunately you can’t use the Website yet because it’s a meeting place for adults only.
We're not responsible for anything that you post or say while you are on the Website, and we can't monitor all of the content of the Website, but if we do see or someone tells us that you have posted something that we think is inappropriate, we may remove it.
We do not conduct criminal background screening of our users. To learn about online dating safety, please visit Get Safe Online.
If you post any content that actually belongs to someone else and they get annoyed (or even call in their lawyers), we are not in the firing line. You must take responsibility for what you post.
We use fictitious profiles to stimulate interaction and conversations among users.
All disputes are subject to mandatory mediation and mandatory arbitration in the Netherlands.
We may change these terms on one or more occasions, but changes will not apply to ongoing disputes or to disputes arising out of events happening before the posted changes.

We do not (and will not): (1) monitor the activity of our users, (2) screen or interview our users, (3) investigate the background of our users, or (4) try to verify the accuracy of statements made by our users. We are not making any warranty about the conduct of our users or those acting on their behalf. We recommend that you take reasonable precautions in all communications, meetings, or interactions with other users on the Website. We also recommend that you consider the following online dating safety tips:
Anyone who can commit identity theft can also falsify a dating profile.
There is no substitute for acting with caution when communicating with any stranger who wants to meet you.
Never include your last name, email address, home address, phone number, place of work, or any other identifying information in your Internet profile or initial email messages. Stop communicating with anyone who pressures you for personal or financial information or tries in any way to trick you into revealing it.
If you choose to have a face-to-face meeting with another user, always tell someone in your family or a friend where you are going and when you will return. Never agree to be picked up at your home. Always provide your own transportation to and from your date and meet in a public place with many people around.

8.2 Does the Website use fictitious profiles?
Yes, we use fictitious profiles for testing behavioral/social studies and for entertainment purposes. These user profiles posted on the Website are fictitious and are associated with our "Fantasy Entertainment" (FE) service.

Nothing contained in any FE service profile is intended to describe or resemble any real person-living or dead.

9.1 Do you guarantee that the Website will always be up and running?
Unfortunately, we can’t guarantee that because sometimes we must carry out maintenance to the Website or it may be affected by a fault or circumstance outside our control, so we provide the Website "as is" and "as available."

We may suspend, withdraw, or change the service provided on the Website without notice and without incurring any liability to you.

9.3 I’m not registered and I can’t seem to access some content on the Website. Why is that?
Nonregistered users can access only that part of the Website that is publicly available. Nonregistered users will not have a profile or the ability to upload any content. The extent of registered users’ access to the Website will depend on meeting certain criteria relating to their profile or whether they have purchased credits. We may change the criteria on one or more occasions without notice.
10.1 My profile has disappeared and I can’t log in. What’s going on?
Sometimes people forget about the terms and post content or act in a way while on the Website that is not consistent with the purpose of the Website. If we think that you may be one of those people, we may at any time and without notice:
(10.1.a) Suspend or cancel your account and your right to access or use the Website or submit any content to the Website; and
(10.1.b) Make use of any operational, technological, legal, or other means available to enforce the terms (including blocking specific IP addresses).

Please consider the fact that deleting your account is permanent: matches, messages, and credits will be lost forever.
Warning: Content that you have uploaded to the Website, other than your profile (for example messages), may still appear on the Website after you delete your account.

11.2 Someone is infringing my copyright; how do I report it?

(3.d) Scope of Disclaimers, Exclusions, and Limits
The above disclaimers, exclusions, and limits apply to the greatest extent allowed by law, but no more. We do not intend to deprive you of any mandatory protections provided to you by law. Because some jurisdictions may prohibit the disclaimer of some warranties, the exclusion of some damages, or other matters, one or more of the disclaimers, exclusions, or limits might not apply to you.
15.1 In General
You must pay us for any loss of ours that is caused by your
(15.1.a) access of the Website;
(15.1.b) conduct on or off the Website;
(15.1.c) breach of these terms;
(15.1.d) actual or alleged infringement or violation of rights of another person, including intellectual property and privacy rights;
(15.1.e) actual or alleged violation of law; or
(15.1.f) actual or alleged negligent, intentional, or criminal conduct, including engaging in fraudulent or deceptive conduct.
But you are not required to pay if the loss was caused by our actual intentional misconduct.
(15.2.a) "Loss" means an amount that we are legally responsible for or pay in any form. Amounts include, for example, a judgment, a settlement, a fine, damages, injunctive relief, staff compensation, a decrease in property value, and expenses for defending against a claim for a loss (including fees for legal counsel, expert witnesses, and other advisers). A loss can be tangible or intangible; can arise from bodily injury, property damage, or other causes; can be based on tort, breach of contract, or any other theory of recovery; and includes incidental, direct, and consequential damages.
(15.2.b) A loss is "caused by" an event if the loss would not have happened without the event, even if the event is not a proximate cause of the loss.
15.3 Our Duty to Notify
We will notify you before the 15th business day after we know or should reasonably have known of a claim for a loss that you might be obligated to pay. But our failure to timely notify you does not terminate your obligation, except if that failure prejudices your ability to mitigate losses.
15.4 Legal Defense of a Claim
We have control over defending a claim for a loss (including settling it), unless we direct you to control the defense. If we direct you to control the defense, you will not settle any litigation without our written consent if the settlement (1) imposes a penalty or limitation on us, (2) admits our fault, or (3) does not fully release us from liability. You and we will cooperate with each other in good faith on a claim.
15.5 No Exclusivity
Our rights under this section 15 do not affect other rights we might have.
The owner of the Website is located in the Netherlands. We are not making any statement that the Website or any of its content is accessible or appropriate outside of the Netherlands. Access to the Website may not be legal by certain persons or in certain countries. If you access the Website from outside the Netherlands, you do so on your own initiative and are responsible for complying with all local laws.
17.1 The laws of the Netherlands—without giving effect to any conflicts of law principles—govern all matters arising out of or relating to the Website or these terms. The predominant purpose of these terms is providing services and licensing access to intellectual property and not a "sale of goods."
17.2 Except for disputes subject to arbitration, all disputes arising out of or relating to the Website or these terms will be subject to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue of the courts located in the Netherlands. Each party submits to the personal jurisdiction of the courts located in the Netherlands to resolve all disputes not subject to arbitration. Each party waives any right to seek another forum or venue because of improper or inconvenient forum.
17.3 For purposes of this section 17, the Website will be deemed solely based in the Netherlands and will be deemed a passive website that does not give rise to personal jurisdiction over us, either specific or general, in any other jurisdiction.
18.1 In General
Each party will allow the other a reasonable opportunity to comply before it claims that the other has not met its duties under these terms. The parties will first meet and negotiate with each other in good faith to try to resolve all disputes between the parties arising out of or relating to the Website or these terms.
18.2 Litigation Election
Either party may elect to litigate the following type of case or controversy: (1) an action seeking injunctive relief, or (2) a suit to compel compliance with this dispute resolution process.
If the parties cannot settle a dispute arising out of or relating to the Website or this agreement through negotiation after 30 days, either party may, by notice to the other party and the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC), demand mediation under the ICC Mediation Rules. Unless the parties agree otherwise, mediation will take place in the Netherlands and the language of the mediation will be English. Each party will bear its own costs in mediation, and the parties will share equally between them all third-party mediation costs unless the parties agree differently in writing. Each party will participate actively and constructively in mediation proceedings once started and will attend at least one joint meeting between the mediator and the parties. Any party may terminate mediation at any time after an initial meeting between the mediator and the parties.
If the parties cannot settle a dispute through mediation, the parties will settle any unresolved dispute arising out of or relating to the Website or these terms by binding arbitration administered by the ICC in accordance with the Rules of Arbitration of the International Chamber of Commerce. A single arbitrator will preside over the arbitration. The arbitrator, and not any court or agency, will have exclusive authority to resolve any dispute arising under or relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability, or formation of these terms, including any claim that any part is void or voidable.
Unless the parties agree otherwise in writing, the arbitration will take place in the Netherlands.
Each party will be responsible for paying any filing, administrative, and arbitrator fees associated with the arbitration.
The arbitrator may grant whatever relief that would be available in a court at law or in equity, except that the arbitrator must not award punitive or exemplary damages, or damages otherwise limited or excluded in this agreement. In accordance with section 18.6, the arbitrator’s award will include the costs of arbitration, reasonable legal fees, and reasonable costs for expert and other witnesses. The arbitrator’s award will be binding on the parties and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction.
Unless required by law, neither a party nor an arbitrator will disclose the existence, content, or results of any arbitration under these terms without the advance written consent of both parties. 18.5 Right to Injunctive Relief
Both parties acknowledge that remedies at law may be inadequate to provide an aggrieved party with full payment if the other party breaches these terms, and that an aggrieved party may seek injunctive relief if a breach happens, besides seeking all other remedies available at law or in equity.
18.6 Recovery of Expenses
In any proceedings between the parties arising out of this agreement or relating to the subject matter of this agreement, the prevailing party will be entitled to recover from the other party, besides any other relief awarded, all expenses that the prevailing party incurs in those proceedings, including legal fees and expenses. If any proceedings are voluntarily dismissed or are dismissed as part of settlement of that dispute, neither party will be the prevailing party in those proceedings. For purposes of this section 18.6, "prevailing party" means, for any proceeding, the party in whose favor an award is rendered, except that if in those proceedings the award finds in favor of one party on one or more claims or counterclaims and in favor of the other party on one or more other claims or counterclaims, neither party will be the prevailing party.
18.7 Jury Trial Waiver
Both parties hereby waive the right to a trial by jury for any claim arising out of or relating to the Website or these terms. Either party may enforce this waiver up to and including the first day of trial.
18.8 Class Action Waiver
The parties will conduct any proceedings to resolve a dispute in any forum on an individual basis only. Neither party will try to have any dispute heard as a class action or in any other proceeding in which either party acts or proposes to act in a representative capacity. The parties will not combine any arbitration or proceeding with another without the advanced written of all parties to all affected arbitrations or proceedings.
18.9 Limitation on Time to File Claims
A party will not file a claim arising out of or relating to the Website or these terms more than one year after the cause of action arose. Any claim brought after one year is barred.
19.1 Entire Agreement
These terms constitute the entire agreement between you and us about your access to the Website. It supersedes all earlier or contemporaneous terms between you and us about access to the Website. A printed version of these terms will be admissible in any proceedings arising out of or relating to these terms to the same extent and subject to the same conditions as other business documents and records originally generated and kept in printed form.
19.2 Copy of these Terms
You may—and we recommend that you—print these terms on your printer or save them to your computer. If you are having trouble printing a copy, please email us at [email protected] and we will email you a copy.
We may change these terms on one or more occasions. We will try to post changes on the Website at least 15 days before they become effective. Changes will become effective on the "last updated" date stated at the top of the terms. Changes will not apply to continuing disputes or to disputes arising out of or relating to events happening before the posted changes. While we will try to notify you when we make changes to these terms, we do not assume an obligation to do so, and it is your responsibility to frequently check this webpage to review the most current terms. By continuing to use the Website after we post changes to these terms, you agree to the revised terms. If you do not agree to the revised terms, your exclusive remedy is to stop accessing the Website. If you need more information about the changes or have any other questions or comments about the changes, please contact us at [email protected]
19.4 Assignment and Delegation
We may assign our rights or delegate any performance under this agreement without your consent. You will not assign your rights or delegate your performance under this agreement without out first obtaining our advanced written consent. Any attempted assignment of rights or delegation of performance in breach of this section 19.4 is void.
19.5 No Waivers
The parties may waive any provision in this agreement only by a writing signed by the party or parties against whom the waiver is sought to be enforced. No failure or delay in exercising any right or remedy, or in requiring the satisfaction of any condition, under this agreement, and no act, omission, or course of dealing between the parties, operates as a waiver or estoppel of any right, remedy, or condition. A waiver made in writing on one occasion is effective only in that instance and only for the purpose stated. A waiver once given is not to be construed as a waiver on any future occasion or against any other person.
The parties intend as follows:
(19.6.a) that if any provision of this agreement is held to be unenforceable, then that provision will be modified to the minimum extent necessary to make it enforceable, unless that modification is not permitted by law, in which case that provision will be disregarded; v (19.6.b) that if modifying or disregarding the unenforceable provision would result in failure of an essential purpose of this agreement, the entire agreement will be held unenforceable;
(19.6.c) that if an unenforceable provision is modified or disregarded in accordance with this section 19.6, then the rest of the agreement will remain in effect as written; and
(19.6.d) that any unenforceable provision will remain as written in any circumstances other than those in which the provision is held to be unenforceable.
(19.7.a) Sending Notice to Us
You may send notice to us by email at [email protected] unless a specific email address is set out for giving notice. We will consider an email notice received by us only when our server sends a return message to you acknowledging receipt.

(19.7.b) Sending Notice to You—Electronic Notice
You consent to receiving any notice from us in electronic form either (1) by email to the last known email address we have for you or (2) by posting the notice on a place on the Website chosen for this purpose. We will consider notices sent to you by email received when our email service shows transmission to your email address. You state that any email address you gave us for contacting you is a current and valid email address for receiving notice, and that your computer has hardware and software configured to send and receive email through the Internet and to print any email you receive.

These terms do not and the parties do not intend them to confer any rights or remedies on any person other than the parties to these terms.
19.10 Successors and Assigns
These terms bind and inure to the benefit of the parties and their respective successors and assigns. This section 19.10 does not address, directly or indirectly, whether a party may assign rights or delegate obligations under these terms. Section 19.4 addresses these matters.
19.11 Communications and Test Profiles
(19.11.b) On one or more occasions, our employees (or employees of our parent or affiliated companies) may create test dating profiles to test the functionality of our service and website processes to improve service quality for our users.
(19.11.c) Telephone calls between you and our customer care representatives may be recorded for quality assurance purposes.

We do not provide facilities for sending or receiving confidential electronic communications. You should consider all messages sent to us or from us as open communications readily accessible to the public. You should not use the Website to send or receive messages you only intend the sender and named recipients to read. Users or operators of the Website may read all messages you send through the Website regardless of whether they are intended recipients.

We encourage you to provide feedback about the Website. But we will not treat as confidential any suggestion or idea provided by you, and nothing in these terms will restrict our right to use, profit from, disclose, publish, or otherwise exploit any feedback, without payment to you.
19.16 English language
We have drafted these terms in the English language. We assume that you can read and understand the English language. We are not liable to you or any other person for any costs or expenses incurred to translate these terms into another language. The English language version controls over any translated version.
This agreement’s provisions that by their nature should survive termination will survive termination, including ownership provisions, disclaimers, and limitations of liability. Termination of your access to the Website will not relieve you of any obligations arising or accruing before termination or limit any liability that you otherwise may have to us or any third party.
