We will not be liable for any acts or omissions by you, including any damages of any kind incurred as a result of such acts or omissions. We may suspend, disable, modify, or delete your account (or any part thereof) if we determine that you have violated any provision of this Agreement or that your conduct or content would tend to damage our reputation and goodwill. If we delete your account for the foregoing reasons, you may not re-register for our Services. We may block your email address and Internet protocol address to prevent further registration.

Member conduct

In your digital interactions with other users (including, but not limited to: site messages, instant messages, timeline posts, and comments), you agree to conduct yourself civilly and respectfully. While using the Website, you agree that you shall not under any circumstances harass or make mischief against any other user of the Website. ItsJustaNumber reserves the right to determine, at its sole discretion, what constitutes harassment or mischief, and where that has occurred; and may, also at its sole discretion, partially or completely deny service to any infringing party. As part of these efforts, ItsJustaNumber may enlist the help of its active members to report other members if the member’s conduct is harmful to the community.

Further:

  1. The Website is available only to those who seek someone significantly older or younger for the purposes of social networking and/or dating. If the Minimum Age or Maximum Age fields do not reflect the intent and purpose of the Service, these fields may be edited by the administrator, you may lose privileges, your account may be frozen, or your account may be terminated. If there is any indication of an age range in the essay portion of your profile that is contrary to the intent and purpose of the Service, the administrator may edit your profile or deactivate your account.
  2. Any conduct or content that would tend to libel or defame this Website, anyone associated with the operation of this Website, or any other member of this Website will be removed upon discovery and the offender's account is subject to immediate downgrade, deactivation, or termination. This includes telling other members that there are "fake profiles" on this Website or any other remarks that may be considered negative or defamatory.
  3. Your profile MUST include a picture in order to contact other members. Your profile picture should clearly show your face. If you remove your profile picture or change your profile picture to one that does not clearly show your face, your original profile picture may be restored, at the discretion of the Administrator. Any account without a profile picture and/or any account that has a profile picture that does not clearly show the face of the member may be deactivated or deleted at any time without notice at the discretion of the administrator. In addition, if you remove any additional pictures from your profile, the original pictures may be restored to your profile by the administrator at any time. Removal of your profile picture or replacing your profile picture with one that does not meet our standards is a violation of these Terms and conditions and may cause you to lose privileges on the site. Please see the section with the heading Loss of privileges below.

Limitation of liability

To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, in no event will Website operator, its affiliates, officers, directors, employees, agents, suppliers or licensors be liable to any person for (a): any indirect, incidental, special, punitive, cover or consequential damages (including, without limitation, damages for lost profits, revenue, sales, goodwill, use or content, impact on business, business interruption, loss of anticipated savings, loss of business opportunity) however caused, under any theory of liability, including, without limitation, contract, tort, warranty, breach of statutory duty, negligence or otherwise, even if Website operator has been advised as to the possibility of such damages or could have foreseen such damages.

Severability

All rights and restrictions contained in this Agreement may be exercised and shall be applicable and binding only to the extent that they do not violate any applicable laws and are intended to be limited to the extent necessary so that they will not render this Agreement illegal, invalid or unenforceable. If any provision or portion of any provision of this Agreement shall be held to be illegal, invalid or unenforceable by a court of competent jurisdiction, it is the intention of the parties that the remaining provisions or portions thereof shall constitute their agreement with respect to the subject matter hereof, and all such remaining provisions or portions thereof shall remain in full force and effect.

Notices and disclaimers

Use of this Website is provided as is, where is, as an accommodation, and without warranty of any kind.

Arbitration and governing law

a. The exclusive means of resolving any dispute or claim arising out of or relating to these Terms of Service (including any alleged breach thereof), the Service, or the Website shall be binding arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association under the Consumer Arbitration Rules. The one exception to the exclusivity of arbitration is that you have the right to bring an individual claim against the Company in a small-claims court of competent jurisdiction. But whether you choose arbitration or small-claims court, you may not under any circumstances commence or maintain against the Company any class action, class arbitration, or other representative action or proceeding. Any arbitration fees or other fees will be paid by you.

b. By using the Website or the Service in any manner, you agree to the above arbitration agreement. In doing so, you give up your right to go to court to assert or defend any claims between you and the Company (except for matters that may be taken to small-claims court). You also give up your right to participate in a class action proceeding.. Your rights will be determined by a neutral arbitrator, not a judge or jury, and the arbitrator shall determine all issues regarding the arbitrability of the dispute. You are entitled to a fair hearing before the arbitrator. The arbitrator can grant any relief that a court can, but you should note that arbitration proceedings are usually simpler and more streamlined than trials and other judicial proceedings. Decisions by the arbitrator are enforceable in court and may be overturned by a court only for very limited reasons. For details on the arbitration process, see our Arbitration Procedures.

c. Any proceeding to enforce this arbitration agreement, including any proceeding to confirm, modify, or vacate an arbitration award, may be commenced in any court of competent jurisdiction. In the event that this arbitration agreement is for any reason held to be unenforceable, any litigation against the Company (except for small-claims court actions) may be commenced only in the federal or state courts located in the county and state in which the offices of this Service are located. You hereby irrevocably consent to the jurisdiction of those courts for such purposes.

d. This Agreement, and any dispute between you and the Company, shall be governed by the laws of the state in which the Company is located without regard to principles of conflicts of law, provided that this arbitration agreement shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act.

Your use of this Website is governed by all applicable laws and regulations of the United States and any state and locality having jurisdiction. Information on this Website may be subject to U.S. export control restrictions. Your use of this Website may be subject to the laws of other countries if you are not located in the United States.

Unique profile

You agree to create only one unique profile. In addition, in order to maintain the integrity of the Website, by joining, you agree that your use of the Website shall be for bona fide social networking and/or relationship-seeking purposes. ANY other use of this website, in whole or in part, is a violation of these Terms of Service.

Test profiles

From time to time, we may create test profiles in order to monitor the operation of our services. Additionally, ItsJustaNumber may take complete control of any abandoned profile and all User Content associated with any abandoned profile at any time for testing purposes. For these purposes, an abandoned profile is any member profile that has not been accessed by the member who created the profile (member has not logged in) for at least 60 days.

Communications

When you become a member, you agree and consent to receive email messages from us. These emails may be transactional or relationship communications relating to the Website, such as administrative notices and service announcements or changes. If you block emails from the Service or if your email address becomes unavailable, your profile may be deactivated.

Profile Deactivation

ItsJustaNumber.com is a free service. You will never be charged for the service, nor will any IJN Admin, Moderator, employee or representative ever ask for any credit card or other financial information. Profiles are generally deactivated or deleted if a member has not logged in for at least 90 days.
