Company allows you and other users of MLR (“Users”) to enjoy some or all of the following (all of which are collectively referred to in this Agreement as the “Services”):
- access MLR to submit and read profiles and Stories;
- review Blogs, Advice Columns and City Guides;
- submit text, photographs, video, images, scans, documents or digital files to MLR for viewing by other Users;
- send emails, participate in chat or video chat sessions; and
- participate in Talks and any other public discussions.
Not everything described in this section may be available on MLR; as MLR evolves, its Services may also evolve and some of the Services which are not now available may become available in the future, while other Services may be changed or removed. MLR reserves the right to modify, add, delete or suspend any of its Services at any time without notice to Users.
Some of the Services are available to all of MLR’s Users, while others are available only to those with a free or paid MLR account (“Subscribers”). MLR reserves the right to charge all Users fees for some or all of the Services upon notice, and to change what Services may only be accessed by paid Subscribers.
Eligibility. By approving this Agreement, by continuing to access MLR or by using the Services, under penalty of perjury, you solemnly affirm, represent and warrant that: (a) you are a person and are not a robot or other automated system; (b) you are 18 years of age or older (and an adult under the laws of the place from which you are accessing MLR); (c) you will truthfully and accurately submit all information required by MLR to register; (d) you will periodically update and maintain the accuracy of such information; (e) your use of the Services does not violate any applicable law, statute or code under the laws of the place from which you are accessing MLR; (f) you do not find adult oriented stories and other materials about erotic adventures to be offensive or objectionable; (g) you are not an adult entertainer, escort or the like; (h) you will not use MLR to stalk, troll, compile reports or otherwise monitor any User or group of Users; (i) you are an actual person with only one User Name, Account or Profile on MLR; (j) you understand the laws of the place from which you are accessing MLR; and (k) you are solely responsible for your own actions.
Responsible and Respectful Conduct. You agree to act responsibly on MLR and to treat other Users fairly, honestly, respectfully and with dignity. You acknowledge that MLR is intended to be a safe place for people to communicate and meet. As such, neither Company nor MLR will tolerate anything that we believe to be intolerant of the rights of others (including material that is racist, misogynistic or which promotes gender, ethnic sexual orientation or religious intolerance) is excessively violent, harassing, or otherwise objectionable, or which, generally, promotes intolerance of others, and Company reserves the right to remove any such content, at any time. We encourage you and all Users to bring to our attention any content that you believe violates any of Company’s policies.
No Background Checks. Company respects your privacy and so it does not perform background checks, criminal checks or identity checks on its Users. MLR is a dating website, and we are not responsible for whom you may date, meet or with whom you may communicate in any way. By assenting to this Agreement, You acknowledge that neither Company nor MLR perform any sort of screening, background, identity or criminal record search or check on Users of MLR. You understand and acknowledge that Company shall not be held responsible in any way for the outcome of any contact or meeting, whether in person, by telephone or any other means, resulting from your use, directly or indirectly, of MLR or any of its Services. We strongly suggest that you act cautiously and that you screen anyone with whom you may have contact on MLR and in particular before you meet anyone in person.
Materials Directed at a Mature Audience. You hereby warrant and represent to Company that:
- You are not offended by such Content;
- You are intentionally and knowingly seeking access to such Content for your own personal enjoyment and use;
- You understand and acknowledge that Users have no affiliation with MLR and that MLR is not responsible for the postings or profiles made by Users or any materials to which they may link; and
Automatic Recurring Billing . If you have subscribed and have elected Automatic Recurring Billing, Subscription fees will be automatically renewed at or after the end of the original term selected, for a similar period of time and for the then prevailing Subscription fee, unless notice of cancellation is received by Company from you before the Automatic Recurring Billing has been processed. Unless and until this Agreement is cancelled in accordance with the terms hereof, Subscriber hereby authorizes MLR, its owner, affiliates or agents to charge Subscriber's chosen payment method to pay MLR’s subscription fees.
Subscriber Services. Problems, complaints or compliments should be directed to Company at 1-866-785-6394, 1-702-749-4453 or email@example.com. Company will attempt to respond within three Business Days (as determined at Company’s offices).
Refund Policy. Refunds for Subscription purchases may be requested by contacting customer support (firstname.lastname@example.org). Refunds or credits will not be issued for the remaining term of a monthly Subscription, or for less than a month remaining on a Quarterly or Annual Subscription. The decision to refund a charge does not imply any obligation to issue additional future refunds. Company reserves the right to grant a refund or a credit applicable to subscriptions to MLR at its discretion. Should a refund be issued by Company for any reason, except as otherwise set forth in this section it will be credited solely to the payment method used in the original transaction, and only after any payment has been irrevocably paid and received by Company. Company will not issue refunds by cash, check, or wire transfer, and will not refund monies to anyone other than the owner of the account originally billed. Cancellation for all future recurring billing may be requested in accordance with Section 10 - Cancellation & Recurring Charges.
Foreign Transaction Fees. We may use credit card processors or banks outside the country in which you reside to process your transactions. In some instances, your bank or credit card issuer may charge you a foreign transaction or similar fee or charge. Before using a credit card to pay for a subscription, please check with your bank or credit card issuer for more information about its policies regarding foreign transaction and similar fees and charges.
Cancellation & Recurring Charges. At any time, and without cause, subscription to MLR may be terminated by either Company or Subscriber upon notification to the other by electronic or conventional mail, by chat or equivalent, or by telephone, in a manner by which receipt reasonably may be expected. Subscribers are liable for charges incurred until the date of termination. In order to cancel a subscription or to cancel recurring charges Subscribers may contact MLR support at email@example.com or use the online cancellation form found here.
Cardholder Disputes. All credit (or debit) card holder disputes and potential “chargebacks” are thoroughly investigated by Company. If Company concludes that a Subscriber has acted unfairly or has been dishonest, Company reserves the right to cancel Subscriber’s subscription and to decline to allow Subscriber to re-subscribe to MLR. If you have a billing concern, before complaining to your credit (or debit) card issuer, Company suggests that you contact Company at 1-866-785-6394, 1-702-749-4453 or firstname.lastname@example.org so that we may attempt to resolve any billing or other problem.
Children. This should go without saying, but MLR is a website for an adult audience, not children. MLR has a ZERO TOLERANCE POLICY relating to any illegal content, and in particular, any content that constitutes or promotes child pornography or the exploitation of minors. We ask responsible adults to assist us by supervising the activities of children to be certain that they are not given access to this site. MLR does not condone illegal behavior or content and will cooperate with all governmental agencies that seek to criminally prosecute those who harm or exploit children in any way. Any violations of this policy should be brought to our attention immediately at email@example.com.

You understand that whether or not any Contribution is published, made available for viewing on MLR or used by Company in a manner for which provision is made in this Agreement, Company does not guarantee any confidentiality with respect to any Contributions.

You further waive any potential infringement rights you may have in any such Contribution. Additionally, you agree that we may assign, sell, license or sublicense the above license to our affiliates and successors without any further approval by you, and that upon the sale, merger, transfer, acquisition or other event by which some or all of Company or MLR are sold, purchased, merged, acquired or the like, the non-exclusive, royalty free, worldwide license described in this subsection will be, directly or indirectly, owned, partially owned or controlled or partially controlled by whomever purchases, merges with, acquires or the like Company or MLR;

While Content some may consider “adult” is or may be accepted, Company also reserves the right to decide, in its sole discretion, whether a Contribution is appropriate, complies with this Agreement or complies with Company’s other policies (whether in writing or not) and at any time may remove any Contribution or Content even if originally allowed by Company;
- Company provides MLR as a service to its Users. However, Company assumes no responsibility whatsoever for monitoring the Services for inappropriate Contributions or Content. If at any time Company chooses, in its sole discretion, to monitor the Services, however, Company assumes no responsibility for the Contributions or Content, no obligation to modify or remove any inappropriate or potentially inappropriate Contributions or Content, and no responsibility for the conduct of any User submitting any such Contributions; and
- All Contribution or Content is provided "AS IS" without representation or warranty of any kind. Under no circumstances shall we be liable to you in any way for any Contribution or Content, including but not limited to, any errors or omissions in any Contribution or Content, or any loss or damage of any kind incurred as a result of the use of any such material. You expressly agree that Company (including MLR) is immune from liability to the fullest extent permitted by law in the jurisdiction from which you access MLR, and to the extent applicable, under the provisions of the United States of America’s Communications Decency Act, for any Contribution. Nothing contained herein is intended to modify, waive, remove or compromise such immunity.
- Original material which MLR posts on this site is protected by intellectual property laws.

Good Samaritan Third-Party Content Policy & Complaint Procedures.
- Policy. It is Company’s policy not to tolerate any acts of intellectual property infringement or violations of United States or other laws, or international conventions. It is also Company’s strict policy not to allow any Contribution to be Posted on MLR that contains or promotes, as appropriate, child pornography, child exploitation, obscene or defamatory content. Company will do its best, in good faith, to remove, disable or restrict access to or the availability of any Contribution that, in Company’s subjective view, is infringing or which violates any of Company’s policies or terms. The provisions of this Section 16.(a) are intended to implement this policy but are not intended to impose a contractual obligation on us to undertake, or to compel us to refrain from undertaking, any particular course of conduct;
- Complaint Procedures. If you believe that someone has posted a Contribution which violates this policy (other than in cases of copyright infringement, which is addressed in Section 17), Company asks you to promptly notify it by email at the following address: firstname.lastname@example.org. You must use this address if you want to ensure that your complaint is actually received by the appropriate person charged with investigating alleged policy violations; and
In order to allow us to respond effectively, please provide us with as much detail as possible, including: (1) the nature of the right infringed or violated; (2) all facts which lead you to believe that a right has been violated or infringed; (3) the precise location (on MLR) where the offending Contribution is located; (4) any grounds to believe that the person who Posted the Contribution was not authorized to do so or did not have a valid defense (including the defense of fair use); and (5) if known, the identity of the person or persons who posted the infringing or offending Contribution.
Copyright Policy. As noted above, Company strongly supports copyright laws and believes that the rights of copyright owners should be protected. Company will terminate the account and access rights of any repeat copyright infringer. If you are a copyright owner or the legal agent of a copyright owner, and you believe that any Contribution or content on MLR infringes upon your copyright, you may submit a notification to Company at email@example.com.
