Subscription and Billing

You may access the Site as a guest or as a registered member for free. However, if you wish to communicate with other members and use certain other parts of the Site, you must become a subscriber and pay the fees that are set out in the price list located within the Site.

We want to make payments on the Site convenient, so we allow you to fund your transactions using a number of payment methods ("Funding Instrument"), like credit cards and debit cards, mobile billing, and other payment methods.

When you provide a Funding Instrument to us, you confirm that you are permitted to use that Funding Instrument. When you fund a transaction, you authorize our designated payment processor to charge the full amount to the Funding Instrument you designate for the transaction. You also authorize our designated payment processor to collect and store that Funding Instrument, along with other related transaction information.

If you purchase a subscription we will bill your Funding Instrument immediately, and then again at the beginning of each subscription period.

If a free or discounted trial period is offered and you do not cancel at least 24 hours before that free or trial period expires, you will be billed at the end of the period and at the beginning of each subsequent subscription period.

If your subscription renewal payment fails we will automatically attempt to bill your Funding Instrument, without further authorization from you, for our monthly subscription on various days up until 180 days after the payment failure or subscription cancellation from your side. Any membership benefits you are entitled to under the subscription will cease until we are able to collect your subscription fee.

We reserve the right to alter these subscriptions packages at any time.

Credit and debit card users may be subject to a preauthorization. The preauthorization is not a charge to the credit card. However, the then applicable subscription rate may be reserved against the credit card limit. We will not be held responsible for bank charges, fees or penalties due to overdrawn or delinquent Member accounts. Contact your credit card issuing financial institution for details.

If you fund a payment by credit or debit card and your transaction results in an overdraft or other fee from your bank, you alone are responsible for that fee.

If you use mobile billing as a Funding Instrument, you consent to the following applicable risks and other terms:

  1. By choosing the mobile billing payment method, you agree that we and your mobile operator may exchange information about you in order to facilitate completion or reversal of payments, resolution of disputes, provision of customer support, or other billing-related activity.
  2. You are responsible for any charges, fees, changes to your mobile plan service or billing, alterations to your mobile device, or any other consequence that may arise out of your use of mobile billing.
  3. If you use mobile billing, you are bound not only by these Terms, but also by the terms and conditions of your mobile operator.
  4. If you have questions about any charges or fees that appear on your mobile phone bill, you may contact your mobile provider's customer service division.

Payments made by credit card and debit card will show as "we.co.uk" on your statement.

You are responsible for all fees relating to activities conducted using your Login up till the time that you notify us of unauthorised use of your Login.

If you believe that an unauthorized or otherwise problematic transaction has taken place under your account, you agree to notify us immediately, prior to making a formal notification to your credit card company, so that we may take action to prevent financial loss. Unless you submit the claim to us within 30 days after the charge, you will have waived, to the fullest extent permitted by law, all claims against us arising out of or otherwise related to the transaction.

In the event of any claim that your payment card has been used without your permission or any other fraudulent use of payment cards, we will assist the bank and police authorities with any investigations including providing them with all the details used to register associated profiles, card authentication and any communications through or related to the Site either with The Site or other members.

False fraudulent use claims, may result in you being added to a card blacklist which will affect your future card purchases. Denying a purchase that you have made is illegal and may result in legal action toward you, which can lead to prosecution, fines and impairment of your credit rating.

Termination

These terms will remain in force and effect while you are a member of the Site.

Under the Consumer Protection (Distance Selling) Regulations 2000, if you are defined as a consumer and are resident within the EU, you may cancel your order for the services within an initial seven day cooling off period. However, in accordance with those regulations, if you choose to use the Site in any manner during the seven day cooling off period then you will will no longer have a right to terminate your contract during this period and receive any refund. During this period only, cancellation may be done by giving us written notice. Within 30 days of your notice we will provide you with a refund. For avoidance of doubt, use of the Site in respect of this cancellation right means sending any communication to another user, actively conducting searches of user profiles, viewing photos of other members, or making changes to your profile including your photographs and other publicly visible profile information, or updating or amending any account settings or preferences (unless such settings e.g. email address were inputted incorrectly at sign up and you are seeking to simply amend these entries).

You may, at any other time (and if you have elected to use the service within the seven day cooling off period), cancel subscriptions by contacting our customer care team via the "Contact Us" link. Cancellations must be made at least 72 hours prior to your renewal date in order to ensure the automated re-billing process is stopped for the renewal term. Any cancellation that is made after such date will cancel the automated re-billing process for future renewal terms, but will not cancel the automated re-billing process for the pending renewal term. You will be responsible for paying fees for any subscription that is not cancelled in accordance with this policy at least 72 hours prior to the renewal date. A request for termination under this clause does not give rise to any refund.

We reserve the right to suspend immediately or terminate your access to the Site, without notice, for any reason. If your access to the Site is suspended due to the breach of these Terms of use, you agree that all fees then paid to us will be non-refundable, all outstanding or pending payments will immediately be due and any funds due to you under this agreement will be forfeited to us.

Following any termination of your use of the Site, we reserve the right to send a notice explaining such termination to other members you have contacted through the Site. Your right to use the Site and the Service shall immediately cease, you will have no right to any Content you Submitted, and we may temporarily or permanently block access to, remove, deactivate, delete, and/or discard all such Content.
