This Website is not intended for persons under 18 years of age. If you are under 18, you are not authorized to use this Website and will not be afforded access to any features of this Website that allow for you to provide information to us or to share information with other users of this Website.
LGBT MEDIA INC. STRONGLY ADVISES YOU TO USE EXTREME CAUTION BEFORE SHARING PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION WITH OTHER USERS OF THIS WEBSITE. LGBT MEDIA INC. DOES NOT CONDUCT CRIMINAL OR OTHER BACKGROUND CHECKS ON ITS USERS.
Your safety and security are very important to us. The nature of this Website promotes the sharing of personal information by users with other users. LGBT Media Inc. cannot and does not assure that it is safe for you to have direct contact with other users of this Website. Current technological developments make it possible for users of the Internet to obtain personal information about, and locate, other users, with very little other information. For example, it is possible to use certain widely available commercial Internet search engines to locate a person’s home solely using that person’s correct name. If you believe that any user of this Website is harassing you or is otherwise using personal information about you for unlawful purposes, we encourage you to first inform local law enforcement authorities and then to contact us via The Feedback Form so that we may take appropriate action to block further use of the Website by any user who is using this Website and information obtained from it for improper purposes.
IN NO EVENT SHALL LGBT MEDIA INC. BE LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGES WHATSOEVER, WHETHER DIRECT, INDIRECT, GENERAL, SPECIAL, COMPENSATORY, CONSEQUENTIAL, AND/OR INCIDENTAL, ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO YOUR CONDUCT OR ANYONE ELSE IN CONNECTION WITH THE USE OF THE WEBSITE, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION, BODILY INJURY, EMOTIONAL DISTRESS, AND/OR ANY OTHER DAMAGES RESULTING FROM COMMUNICATIONS OR MEETINGS WITH OTHER REGISTERED USERS OF THIS WEBSITE OR PERSONS YOU MEET. YOU UNDERSTAND THAT LGBT MEDIA INC. MAKES NO GUARANTEES, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, REGARDING YOUR ULTIMATE COMPATIBILITY WITH PEOPLE YOU MEET THROUGH THE WEBSITE.
The following are some basic safety tips for all users of this or any dating website:
(a) There is no substitute for acting with caution when communicating with any stranger who wants to meet you.
(b) Never include your last name, E-mail address, home address, phone number, place of work, or any other identifying information in your internet profile or initial e-mail messages. Stop communicating with anyone who pressures you for personal or financial information or attempts in any way to trick you into revealing it.
(c) If you choose to have a face-to-face meeting with another member, always tell someone in your family or a friend where you are going and when you will return. Never agree to be picked up at your home. Always provide your own transportation to and from your date and meet in a public place with many people around.
(d) Trust your instincts. If something seems shady, then you may want to reconsider going on the date.
(e) Try to verify that the member is who they say they are by using things such as, webcam, phone, social media, etc. Use your judgment.
(f) Always meet in a public place for your first date.
(g) Always let a friend or someone you are close with, know where you will be on the date and the time frame just as a precaution.
(h). If you feel that your safety is threatened while you are on a date, always have your phone handy so you could contact someone who could help you or in the worst case scenario, call 911.
These are just some basic tips. Use common sense. Most of the time, there won't be a problem but like anything else, it's better to be prepared for all situations.

This website at LGBTQutie.com is free for Basic Membership. If you would like to upgrade to paid Premium membership (the "Service"), the following terms apply:
a. Term: The Term for promotions and free trials is limited to the promotional period. After that, should you choose to continue your premium membership, you will be prompted to enter your billing information and be billed for a one year membership on a monthly basis. You must cancel your subscription before the end of the trial period in order to avoid being charged a subscription. The term of a Premium membership is for one year at the then current rates as posted on the Website and will automatically renew from year to year unless cancelled by the user.
b. Automatic Renewal: Your subscription for the Service will continue indefinitely until cancelled by you. After your initial subscription period, and again after any subsequent subscription period, your subscription 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 feature. If you do not wish your account to renew automatically, or if you want to change or terminate your subscription, please log in and go to the Change / Cancel Membership page. If you cancel your subscription, you may use your subscription until the end of the month that you already paid for. Your subscription will not be renewed thereafter. However, you won't be eligible for a prorated refund of any portion of the subscription fee paid for the then-current subscription period.
c. Billing and Payment: LGBT Media Inc. bills you through an online account for use of the Service.

You also agree that no refunds will be given for monthly membership fees. Upon the renewal of your subscription, if LGBT Media Inc. does not receive payment, you agree that LGBT Media Inc. may either terminate or suspend your subscription 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 subscription commitment period will begin as of the day payment was received). If you do not terminate your subscription and/or if you continue to use the Service, you agree that LGBT Media Inc. is authorized to charge the payment method in your online account.
