Users of the Service may become "Guests", "Trial Members" or "Exclusive Members" of the Service. Guests are allowed access to a minimal level of the Service's features and are not charged by us for the use of the features they can access. Trial Members are allowed to access more features of the Service than are Guests, but are limited to this privilege for a minimal trial period. Trial Members are not charged by us for the features they can access. Exclusive Members are provided with full access to all features of the Service that are not available to Guests. Exclusive Members are charged by us for the features they access for the period of time they purchase.
Fees and Payments
- Exclusive Members of the Service are required to purchase a membership in order to use the features of the Service.
- In order to purchase a membership, Exclusive Members may charge them online to a credit card account, place an order via a 1-900 telephone number, check or by money order in accordance with our pricing policy as posted on the Service from time to time. In addition to paying the published price for membership, the purchaser is responsible for paying all applicable taxes in connection with the purchase of a membership. We reserve the right to change our pricing policy at any time at our sole discretion. We also reserve the right to change the method or manner in which we charge members for membership, or the method of payment which is acceptable to us, at our sole discretion.
- Once we have confirmed receipt of your payment, we will update your account to an Exclusive Membership and set the correct expiration date. Where we receive payment for an incorrect amount or non-US$ we will adjust your account with the correct expiration date based on the funds received, converted to US$ at a reasonable market exchange rate at the time of processing. Expiration dates are determined by the type of membership package you purchase. You can confirm the expiration of your membership by checking your account online. An Exclusive Member whose account has expired will become a guest member and will not have access to "paid features" until another membership is purchased. If your usage of the Service is terminated because of a breach of this Agreement or if it is terminated for any reason, your remaining membership is immediately forfeited.
- THE PURCHASE OF A MEMBERSHIP IS NON-REFUNDABLE. Any period of membership will not be refunded if unused, even if you are no longer using the Service. Membership may not be transferred from one member of the Service to another member. Memberships purchased by an Exclusive Member is not refundable under any circumstance but can be used by you at any time. Payment for a Lifetime Membership pays for administrative costs to create and maintain your lifetime status. Once payment for a Lifetime Membership is received, we are extending you the privilege to use the Service indefinately unless we exercise our right to terminate your account for any reason setforth here within. Therefore, if we, or you, terminate service and you have a Lifetime Membership, you are not entitled to a refund as you have not paid for the unused portion of your Lifetime Membership. Administrative costs are non-refundable.
- If you purchase a membership and the fees change at anytime after your purchase, you are not entitled to compensate us for the difference if the fees are higher and you are not entitled to a refund of the difference if the fees are lower.
- You agree to pay or have paid all fees and charges incurred in connection with your membership with the Service (including any applicable taxes) at the rates in effect when the charges were incurred. All fees and charges are non-refundable. We may change the fees and charges in effect for using the Service, or add new fees or charges, by posting new fees and changes on the site from time to time. You also are responsible for any fees or charges incurred to access the Service through an Internet access provider or other third party service, including but not limited to telephone charges. YOU, AND NOT WE, ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR PAYING ANY AMOUNTS BILLED TO YOUR CREDIT CARD BY A THIRD PARTY, WHICH WERE NOT AUTHORIZED BY YOU.
MEMBERSHIPS ARE NON-TRANSFERABLE.

The Service contains information which is proprietary to us, our partners, and our users. We assert full copyright protection in the Service.

You agree to indemnify us, our officers, directors, employees and agents, from any loss or damages, including without limitation reasonable legal fees, which we may suffer from your activities on or use of the Service, including without limitation any breach by you of this Agreement or any charges or complaints made by other parties against you.

The Service is distributed on an "as is" basis. We do not warrant that this Service will be uninterrupted or error-free. There may be delays, omissions, and interruptions in the availability of the Service. Where permitted by law, you acknowledge that the Service is provided without any warranties of any kind whatsoever, either express or implied, including but not limited to the implied warranties of merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose. You acknowledge that use of the Service is at your own risk. We do not represent or endorse the accuracy or reliability of any member profile, advice, opinion, statement or other information displayed, uploaded or distributed through the Service by Swingular, our partners or any user of the Service or any other person or entity.

Your continued use of the Service now, or following the posting of notice of any changes in this Agreement, will constitute a binding acceptance by you of this Agreement, or any subsequent modifications.
Real and VIP Verified Members
We utilize a member verification system. This system is a way to determine if a User is who they say they are - a man, a woman, or a couple. Users are verified when they submit to Us or a Swingular User who has already been verified, evidence sufficient to prove to Us or said User that they are who they say they are. We have the sole discretion to determine what constitutes sufficient evidence. Verification isn’t 100% guaranteed and evidence can be faked. Therefore, we recommend you to use caution even when a User has been verified. Furthermore, the verification only affirms that the User is a member of the demographic group they claim to belong to (male, female, or couple). The verification does not indicate that this User is safe to contact, meet, or give information to. Use the same caution when dealing with a verified User that you would use when dealing with any other User.
For content that is covered by intellectual property rights, like photos and videos ("IP content"), you specifically give us the following permission, subject to your privacy and application settings: you grant us a non-exclusive, transferable, sub-licensable, royalty-free, worldwide license to use any IP content that you post on or in connection with Swingular ("IP License").
This IP License ends when you delete your IP content or your account unless your content has been shared with others, and they have not deleted it.
We may modify this Agreement from time to time. Notification of changes in this Agreement will be posted on the Service or sent via electronic mail, as we may determine in our sole discretion. If you do not agree to any modifications, you should terminate your use of the Service. Your continued use of the Service now, or following the posting of notice of any changes in this Agreement, will constitute a binding acceptance by you of this Agreement, or any subsequent modifications.

We reserve the right to send electronic mail to you, for the purpose of informing you of changes or additions to the Service, or of any Swingular related products and services.
