TERM AND TERMINATION:
By becoming a member of Gayquation, you are electing to commence the service of the website with immediate effect. This waives any right, from any law, from any global location, to make use of a capability known as 'the cooling off' period, which allows you a period of time to postpone the commencement of the service.
This Agreement will remain in full force and effect while You use the Websites or the Service and/or are a Member, and after You have ended use of the Websites or the Service and/or ceased to be a Member, including without limitation the “Resolution of Disputes” section below.
You may terminate your membership at any time via the Website or by sending customer service or your assigned matchmaker written or email notice of termination. Either You or We may terminate your membership, at any time, for any reason, with or without explanation, effective upon sending written or email notice to the other party. Upon such termination by Us without cause, We do not refund, pro rata, any unused portion of any membership payments that We have received from You.

If you cancel your membership via the Website, we may ask you to provide a reason for your cancellation. If you cancel your membership, the Company requires a reasonable amount of time, up to 72 hours, to process the action.
Our matchmaking services are offered as a month to month membership. You are billed every month on the day you originally joined (i.e. May 4, June 4, etc). There are no contracts. You may stop it anytime by contacting customer service or your lead matchmaker.
6 month memberships are charged a one-time fee and are not recurring.
If you cancel a membership, you will enjoy membership benefits until the end of your then-current membership commitment (balance of introductions fulfilled or 75% saturation of your market), following which your membership benefits will expire. However, in no event will you be eligible for a refund of any portion of the membership fees paid for the then-current membership commitment. If you have outstanding matches at the time of cancellation or pausing of your membership, your account will remain active until they have been fulfilled, unless otherwise requested by You, OR your assigned matchmaking team has saturated more than 75% of your area's potential market within a 25 mile radius (metros)/100 mile radius (rural areas), OR 180 days has passed - whichever comes first. Your dedicated Optima page will provide you this information. You may continue to communicate with your assigned matchmaker during this time.
If an X numbers of matches are owed (typically more than 3x your monthly total), your matchmaker may recommend pausing your membership so you are not billed any longer and additional introductions are not added to your balance. You may then decide to reactivate your membership once they have been fulfilled.
Your owed introductions will be provided as best in a timely manner as possible. Those with rolled-over matches do move up our priorty list. Although your introductions are guaranteed, please note that timeframe is not. Please view our guarantee.
For those with 6 month memberships, our goal is to provide an average of 2-4 introductions per month, depending on your membership level, in order to fulfill your balance within 6 months. Often, depending on your location, demographics and/or criteria, it may exceed 6 months, but your number of introductions are guaranteed, regardless of time frame. If your balance is not fulfilled within 9 months, a partial refund will be provided in order to reduce your balance by 2 or 4 introductions; and thereafter every 2 months if your balance has not been fulfilled. Please note that your first 2 or 4 introductions are not refunded due to the intake process, interview and initial matchmaking process.
Your lead matchmaker will give an assessment and any adjusted goals/time frame typically after 6-8 weeks of joining and via your dedicated market report.

You agree to pay the Company all charges at the prices you agreed to for any use of the Service by you or other persons (including your agents) using your Billing Account, and you authorize the Company to charge your chosen payment provider (your "Payment Method") for the Service. You agree to make payment using that selected Payment Method. The Company may correct any billing errors or mistakes that it makes even if it has already requested or received payment. The Billing section includes any agreements you made with the Company on the Website when becoming a Member or subscribing to the Service. The terms of your payment will be based on your Payment Method and may be determined by agreements between you and the financial institution, credit card issuer or other provider of your chosen Payment Method. If you initiate a chargeback or otherwise reverse a payment made with your Payment Method, the Company may in its discretion terminate your account immediately. If the Company successfully disputes the reversal, and the reversed funds are returned, you are not entitled to a refund or to have your account or membership reinstated.
II. Credit Card Chargeback Policy. We protect our business and credit card processors, banks and other institutions providing related services to us from fraudulent credit card chargebacks. A credit card chargeback is when the holder of a credit card disputes a charge with a credit card processor, bank or other institution and the charge is charged back to the business. The chargeback is fraudulent if the credit card holder disputes a charge to a legitimate charge for services the holder has purchased. You understand and agree that in the event you attempt to create a fraudulent credit card chargeback, we will work with the relevant credit card processor, bank or other institution and law enforcement authorities to investigate the matter. Our assistance may include providing details about the profiles, card authentication and communications with or related to our Service or other users or members. Engaging in activities aimed at reversing a legitimate charge is illegal. You understand and acknowledge that you can be prosecuted for such activity and we reserve the right to reclaim any fees and costs we incur in responding to fraudulently filed chargebacks.
III. Paid Membership. Your membership will continue indefinitely until cancelled by you. After your initial membership commitment period, and again after any subsequent membership period, your membership will automatically continue for an additional equivalent period, at the price you agreed to when subscribing. You agree that your account will be subject to this automatic renewal policy. If you do not wish your account to renew automatically, or if you want to change or terminate your membership, please contact us via the Website follow the directions contained therein. If you cancel your membership, you may use your membership until the end of your then-current membership term; your membership will not be renewed after your then-current term expires. However, you won’t be eligible for a prorated refund of any portion of the membership fee paid for the then-current membership period. By subscribing, you authorize the Company to charge your Payment Method now and again at the beginning of any subsequent membership period. You also authorize the Company to charge you for any sales or similar taxes that may be imposed on your membership payments. Upon the renewal of your membership, if the Company does not receive payment from your Payment Method provider, you agree to pay all amounts due on your Billing Account upon demand and/or you agree that the Company may either terminate or suspend your membership and continue to attempt to charge your Payment Method provider until payment is received (upon receipt of payment, your account will be activated and for purposes of automatic renewal, your new membership commitment period will begin as of the day payment was received).
(i) You must provide current, complete and accurate information for your Billing Account. You must 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 must promptly notify the Company if your Payment Method is canceled (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). Changes to such information can be made at "Account Settings" on the Website. If you fail to provide the Company any of the foregoing information, you agree that you are responsible for fees accrued under your Billing Account. In addition, you authorize us to obtain updated or replacement expiration dates and card numbers for you credit or debit card as provided by your credit or debit card issuer.

VI. Membership Holds. Members may put their membership on hold by contacting Customer Service or assigned matchmaker. In order to place a hold on a membership, the Member must contact Gayquation by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or their matchmaker directly. Hold status memberships begins on the first day of notification . It is the responsibility of the member to update Gayquation.com when the hold is to be lifted.
V. Refund & Guarantee Policy (read more here). We are very confident in the Gayquation process an in our qualified and professional matchmakers. We want all of our clients to feel comfortable and secure in our matchmaking process. If your matchmaker fails to match you to the number of men specific to your membership during any given month, in our sole discretion, we reserve the right to immediately implement one of two resolutions:
(a) Any undelivered matches are rolled over to the following month. For example, if you are a 3's A Crowd member (2 matches per month) and your matchmaker only delivers you 1 match in any given month; The balance of 1 match is added to the following month. During that month you will now be owed a total of 3 matches.
(b) If the number of total matches owed is more than 3 times your monthly membership total, your monthly membership billing may be paused based on your lead matchmaker's recommendation. You will still be an active member and all matches are guaranteed for delivery. For example, continuing with the example provided above, if 4 matches have been rolled over during a period of a few months, meaning you are now owed a total of 6 (2 per month + 4 rolled over), your membership will be placed on a hold and the option to cancel or continue will be offered.
(c) A refund may only be requested, if You have Not participated in the hour+ long phone/Skype interview and assessment with your lead matchmaker and an emailed request submitted by You for cancelation has been processed by customer service upon initial sign up.
(d) Once the integration interview has been conducted: No refund will be given unless approved and is subject to extreme situational back order of matches owed and is at the sole discretion of your matchmaker and Gayquation administration, i.e. 4 months have elapsed since your last official introduction. Any refunds approved will reduce the number of introductions on your balance.
(e) For those with 6 month memberships - if your balance is not fulfilled within 9 months, a partial refund will be provided in order to reduce your balance by 2 or 4 introductions (depending on the membership level); and thereafter every 2 months if your balance has not been fulfilled. Please note that your first 2 or 4 introductions are not refunded due to the intake process, interview and initial matchmaking process.
(f) In addition, all matches that you are previously acquainted with, OR do not initiate communication, OR have misrepresentred themselves are replaced. For example, if you contact a match via email or phone and you do not receive a response within a reasonable period of time, the match is replaced. Non-responses by prospective matches do not count towards your guarantee total and replaced by your matchmaker.
IMPORTANT: Rolling-over of matches is standard and may depend on several factors, including your (1) demographics (2) location and (3) criteria. Your matchmaker will be very upfront and candid with you throughout the entire process. He will discuss during the interview with you his expectations based on the factors mentioned above. The Guarantee does not apply to Potential Matches or Are You the Ones. You understand that Gayquation makes no guarantees, either explicit or implied, that we may not be able to provide matches for everyone seeking to use its services. Further, Gayquation makes no guarantees as to the number or frequency of matches through our service, or to such matches’ ability, desire or criteria to communicate with any user or member. You understand that Gayquation makes no guarantees, either explicit or implied, regarding your ultimate compatibility with individuals you meet through the use of our service or as to the conduct of such individuals. Questions and feedback are always welcomed!
(f) Much of our Guarantee is ruled by an “honor system” so for that reason we must put a limit on the number of introductions that can be rejected. Hence, after cancellation/pausing of a membership, the matchmaker has the right to complete his search if he has spent more than a reasonable amount of time on behalf of his client, which includes 1) providing more than 2x the amount of remaining introductions OR 2) saturating his client's area, within 25 miles, by more than 80% and accumulating an additional 20+ hours of service. Please keep in mind that one’s demographics, criteria and/or location have much to do with your matchmaker’s ability to find and qualify matches. He makes every concerted effort to fulfill every introduction. In more than 90% of cases, every introduction is provided. Your matchmaker will optimize the chances of fulfilling every introduction by doing several things, including but not limited to 1) giving recommendations and feedback on criteria/photos/radius 2) spending up to 3x the amount than the average client 3) screening and communicating with up to 3x the amount of potential candidates than the average client and 4) assigning up to 2 additional matchmakers to assist.
