§ 1 Validity
§ 2 Contract
The contract between the operating company and the member regarding the use of meet2cheat commences with the member’s registration as long as this person has completed his or her 18th year of life. The operating company is authorized to review the personal data of the member with the help of appropriate official documents. The member agrees to forward these to the operating company upon request.
The subject matter of this contract are free as well as billable services. The member will be informed of potential charges before the usage of a billable service.
Explicitly not subject of this contract is the brokering of an affair or a continual and recurrent contractually binding activity which is aimed at the initiation or culmination of an affair.
Before entering into a contractual relationship, the member will be informed regarding the respective billable services and the conditions of payment. The contractual relationship originates with the confirmation of the order and the obligation to pay by the member per click. The operating company is not liable for incorrect prices that have been designated by mistake.
The operating company offers meet2cheat exclusively for private use. Commercial use, no matter in what form, is prohibited. The member obligates himself or herself to use the service solely for private purposes.
§ 3 Scope of services
The member receives matches from the operating company, each of which is presented in the member area. The matches are continually updated and incorporate new registrations and changes to existing profiles.
The operating company cannot guarantee that the databases contain the data of persons who, according to the calculations of the evaluation system based on the respective information stored in the profile, result in matches.
For the exchange of messages, the operating company provides each member with an internal chat system on the websites of meet2cheat which offers all the necessary functions for proper communication between members. For men, sending and reading messages is a billable service.
The member complies that it solely lies in the judgement of the operating company to commission a third party to perform a part of or the entire business activities of meet2cheat.
§ 4 Termination of membership
The member has the right to terminate the contract at any time effective immediately. In this case the member is obligated to pay the operating company any outstanding fees for services already rendered. By canceling the contract, the member relinquishes the right to use billable services not yet accessed and has no right to a refund of fees already paid to the operating company. The termination of the contract takes place online by deleting the profile in the member area.
The operating company can terminate the contract immediately at any time without paying heed to the cancelation period. Reasons for termination are, in particular, providing false information upon registration or during later changes, inappropriate behavior towards other members and the commercial use of meet2cheat. The operating company is not obligated to provide a reason. The blocking of an account does not alter the duty of payment for previously commissioned services. Fees already paid to the operating company will not be refunded but retained as a blanket charge for the processing of the breach of contract.
After terminating the contract, all information concerning the member is erased by the operating company insofar as this data is not required beyond the point in time of contract termination for the purpose of evidence regarding an unlawful act committed by the member.
The contract regarding billable services according to § 2 paragraph 4 renews automatically for a period equivalent to the chosen contract term provided that the contract is not terminated at least 4 weeks before the expiration of the contract period. The termination takes place in the member area per click. During the initial payment process, the member receives a confirmation regarding the contract term. At this time the member will also be informed regarding the length of the renewal of the contract should due notice not be given.
The operating company is authorized to limit or discontinue the offered services at any time. Members who still possess a paid and not yet exhausted entitlement to these services at the time of their discontinuance by the operating company receive a pro rata refund based on the non-used entitlements still pending.
§ 5 Liability of the operating company
The operating company is solely liable for the effort of attempting to establish a contact procurance, not the success of said procurance. The operating company merely provides the technical prerequisites which enable the initiation of communication in a general sense. The operating company is thus excluded from liability if no contacts are procured during the contract period.
The operating company does not guarantee the continual, orderly operation and the uninterrupted usage and availability of the service. The operating company is particularly not liable for the quality of the access to the service on the basis of force majeure or occurrences for which the operating company is not responsible.
The operating company is liable for damages to life, body or physical well-being which are associated with meet2cheat insofar as these damages are based on a negligent breach of duty by the operating company or its legal representatives or auxiliary persons respectively or on a deliberate act of the operating company or its legal representatives or auxiliary persons respectively. The liability is limited to typically foreseeable damages known upon the conclusion of the contract.
The operating company is liable for damages which are associated with meet2cheat that occur with other legally protected interests outside of life, body and physical well-being insofar as these damages are based on a grossly negligent breach of duty by the operating company or its legal representatives or auxiliary persons respectively or on a deliberate act of the operating company or its legal representatives or auxiliary persons respectively. The liability is limited to typically foreseeable damages known upon the conclusion of the contract.
