WHO WE ARE
We, Bulova Invest Ltd , are the operator of this website and, for the purposes of the Data Protection Act 1998 (as amended), we are the data controller, maintaining a data controller registration with the Information Commissioner.
Our contact details are: Bulova Invest Ltd, P.O. Box 146, Trident Chambers, Road Town, Tortola, British Virgin Islands
We operate a large number of social, dating, lifestyle and entertainment sites (including mobile applications/apps) through our Group Companies and Partner Sites. We refer to our sites and apps as, collectively, the "Services" within this policy. Some of our terms will make reference to our Group Companies or Partner Sites and any reference in this policy to "us" or "we" or "our" will include our Group Companies and Partner Sites.
(a) ABOUT OUR GROUP COMPANIES.
As a large organisation we have a number of subsidiary and sister companies ("Group Companies") that operate some of our sites on our behalf or provide services to us to enable us to provide the Services to you. For data protection purposes, these companies are called data processors. Our Group Companies are all wholly/majorly operated by us, or our parent company.
(b) ABOUT OUR PARTNER SITES.
If you are reading this policy you are using one of our sites or apps. We have an extensive network of sites that we categorise as casual sites (for adults looking for short-term consensual casual relationships). We want to offer you a full range of products and services and in order to do that we will share your details across our Partner Sites (See below Creation of duplicate profiles across our Partner Sites) and we will market our different products and services to you (See below Marketing). You authorise us to reproduce and broadcast the information contained in your profile including your name, photograph, "chat up line", description etc. throughout all or part of our Partner Sites and our Group Companies for the purposes of delivering the Services to you.

For data storage purposes however our users are considered as either being:
(a) Active Users; this means you regularly log in to our Services and use the Services in any way;
(b) Inactive Users: this means that you have not canceled your account but you haven’t logged in for 9 months, or conducted any activity on our Services in that time;
(c) Canceled: this means that you have followed our cancellation process and actively canceled your membership.
(d) Deactivated: this means that you have chosen to make your profile temporarily invisible to other users.
(a) Active Users
If you are an Active User we will store your data until you cancel your account.
(b) Inactive Users
If you are an Inactive User, you should be aware that we will continue to store your data until you cancel your account, including continue to market to you if you have consented to marketing. Just because you haven’t logged in for a few months, we hope you will return to use the Services regularly and we want your information to be there for your convenience so you should be aware that you will still appear in our search results for other users, and your profile will remain visible. The responsibility to change your preferences or cancel your account lies with you.
(c) Canceled Users
If you are a Canceled Usegrthr who had paid for subscription at least once, we will delete all of your data 6 (six) months after the date of cancellation. If you are a free Canceled User and you have never paid for a subscription, we may delete all of your data immediately after you complete the cancellation procedure (remove account). Once you become a Canceled User, you will not be able to restore your data. It is important that we retain data of paid members for this short period after cancellation to ensure that we can answer any payment or other account related queries, or provide information to third parties in line with our disclosure provisions outlined in this policy e.g. assisting police investigations. Even after you remove information from your profile or delete/cancel your account, copies of this information may still be viewable and/or accessed on the Internet to the extent such information has been previously shared with others, copied or stored by other users or has been shared with search engines.

You may only use and become a registered member of our site if you are 18-years old or older (or the age of majority in the country in which you reside if that happens to be greater than 18-years old).
You can access the Services in the following ways, and by website visits or mobile applications:
(1) By visiting as a guest without registering ("Guest");
(2) By registering for the Services as a non-paying member ("Free Member"); or
(3) By registering for the Services as a member and purchasing a subscription package ("Full Member").
Throughout these terms we will make reference to Guest, Free Member and Full Member. When the clause is relevant to all members, we shall simply use the term "member" or "users" to mean all users, whether Guests, Free, or Paid.
Absent special offers, you understand that if you are not a subscriber (i.e., Full Member): (1) you will not be able to use all the features and services available on the Website; and (2) subscribers and non-subscribing members will not be able to use the Website to communicate with you. A member profile (both subscribers and nonsubscribers) may remain posted on the Website even though that member is not actively using our site. You understand that although a member's profile may be viewed, you may not (even as a subscriber) be able to use the Website to communicate with that member if he or she is not then actively using our site.
There is no fee payable to access the Services as a Guest or as a Free Member.
However, please note that accessing the Services as a Guest or a Free Member will only give you limited access to features and areas of the Services. Full access will require you to upgrade to become a Full Member, by paying for a subscription package.
When you see "JOIN FOR FREE" this means that you can sign up to the Services free of charge, however you will have limited access to features and areas of the Service. Full access will require a Full Membership.
B(1). ABOUT THE PAID FOR SERVICES
We offer you the opportunity to pay for certain services offered on the Website. Our premium services include various opportunities to find and meet additional people, to customize your profile, and to boost your profile so more people find you. Our site also offers the ability to view live cams and featured shows on the Website. You can purchase all of these premium services when you register or after you register and you may subscribe to the premium services for various lengths of time (e.g., 3 day or 1 week trials, and 1, 3, or 6 month subscriptions).
If you want access to the "SMS chat" feature, you must purchase one of our various SMS packages, which is not included in the normal subscription package. Once you have paid for any premium services, they are non-refundable unless expressly stated otherwise in these terms. If you initiate a chargeback or otherwise reverse a payment made by you using your chosen payment method, we may terminate your account immediately. If we successfully dispute the reversal, and the reversed funds are returned to us, you are not entitled to a refund or to have your account or subscription reinstated.
For your convenience, we supply to you the costs and duration of your membership on our registration page on signup. You are responsible for all costs associated with your use of your selected payment method including, for example, exchange rates, transaction fees, interest, and other fees charged by your credit/debit card companies and banks. During the signup process, we will ask you to indicate your preference for membership duration and costs among other things, and we will record your selections and click-through agreement to the duration, costs, and these terms. We reserve the right to offer free membership to any person of our choice at any given time, for any duration, while charging other members, at the same time. We also reserve the right to cancel the free trial period or membership at any time, for all or any of our members.
B(2). FULL MEMBER FEES / CHARGES
If you would like full access to all features and areas within the Services, you should purchase one of our Subscription Packages or one-off (for Vodafone only) for Australian residents only, which can differ across our various websites. As a Full Member you expressly agree to us providing the Services to you immediately upon payment by you.
In general, we offer:
• 3 day or 1 week trials (with some services offering 1 hour trials); and/or
• 1, 3 or 6 month packages.
The fees payable for each of our Subscription Packages are set out on the payment page at the point of making payment. Please review the payment page very carefully when you come to make payment.
Please be aware that when you subscribe to any package, including the trial period, you will become liable for automatic renewal billing. THIS MEANS THAT THE MINIMUM DURATION OF YOUR CONTRACT WILL BE FOR THE INITIAL PERIOD YOU SELECT (E.G. 1 MONTH), AND THIS WILL AUTOMATICALLY RENEW UNTIL YOU CANCEL YOUR SERVICE.
We reserve the right to alter these subscriptions packages at any time. If we alter the price of a package that you are already paying for, we will provide notice of the change to you (in accordance with our process noted below at section 4(D)) and you will have the option to cancel your membership if you do not agree with the new price being offered to you.
C. AUTOMATIC RENEWAL BILLING
We operate an automatic renewal billing policy.
This means that once your initial membership period has expired, for your convenience, your membership will automatically be renewed at the same rate that you signed up for using the original payment method. For example if you pay by credit card, we will continue to debit this same credit card as each subscription period expires. We will only debit these repeat payments when your current payment period expires and not before.
You must provide current, complete, and accurate information for your billing account. You will promptly update all information to keep your billing account current, complete, and accurate (such as a change in billing address, card number, or expiration date), and you will promptly notify us if your payment method is cancelled (including if you lose your card or it is stolen), or if you become aware of a potential breach of security (such as an unauthorized disclosure or use of your name or password). If you fail to provide us any of this information, we will hold you responsible for the fees accrued under your billing account. In addition, you authorize us to obtain updated or replacement expiration dates and card numbers for your credit or debit card as provided by your credit or debit card issuer.
To reduce the risk of fraudulent transactions, we may require some users to verify their billing account by debiting their credit or debit card a small, random amount of $0.5 to $5 (or its equivalent in local currency). Please check your bank statement for the actual debit amount of billing account verification and confirm it if needed. This amount will be refunded within 3 to 5 days after the credit card or debit card verification process is complete.
D. PRICE CHANGES
We reserve the right to alter our packages at any time and any change in your subscription price will be notified to you by email to the address you have provided when you signed up to the Services, at least 7 days prior to the new subscription price being implemented. You will then have the option to cancel your membership if you do not agree to this price change.
E. DISPUTES ABOUT BILLING AND REFUNDS
In the event that you disagree with any charge made to your account, you agree to contact us with a view to resolving the dispute prior to making a formal notification to your credit card company. You must contact us either by email or telephone, stating your reasons for dispute of the charge. This will enable us to accurately and promptly assess your complaint and, where justified, credit your card with the disputed amount in a timely manner to avoid any further inconvenience to you. All disputes must be raised within three (3) months of the disputed transaction occurring.
Please note if you have made payment for our application through Apple's iTunes service, in accordance with Apple's developer policies, we shall not issue any refunds if you have purchased our app in this way.
We do not issue refunds unless there are extenuating circumstances that we feel warrant a refund. These may be things like the Website not working properly for some reason. In cases like these, we will issue refunds after investigating on a case-by-case basis. We will take into consideration things such as other complaints received or other customer comments. We do not guarantee satisfaction and we will not consider dissatisfaction with the Website or simply buyer's remorse as grounds for a refund.
We do not provide cash refunds; our authorized billing agent refunds the requested transaction back to you.
If an issued refund is for a recurring billing, we will only refund the most recent payment. A refund for a recurring billing will result in an immediate cancellation of the recurring service. A refund of fees for any nonrecurring service will also result in immediate termination of access to the service.
To request a refund, you must contact our customer service department through our "Contact Us" page. On issuing a refund, the Website reserves the right to add you to the negative databases of our associated authorized billing agents, and to any third party fraud prevention agents associated with our products.
