Terms of Use

General Overview

The Omyx Club, much like any other social networks and dating website out there has terms of use and privacy policies in place to both protect existing users and prospective users of our offering. Unlike the large majority of websites in existance The Omyx Club operates exclusively for gay men and all profiles are approved prior to being visible to other members. As a result this means that anyone using our platform has been reviewed first and accepted onto the network as a result. If, at any point as an existing member, you feel there is another member who you are uncomfortable with on our platform please don't hesitate to get in touch with us ([email protected]) explaining your reasons for this.

These Terms and Conditions apply to the entire contents of the present website.

Some parts of the Service are billed on a subscription basis ("Subscription(s)"). You will be billed in advance on a recurring and periodic basis ("Billing Cycle"). Billing cycles are set either on a monthly or annual basis, depending on the type of subscription plan you select when purchasing a Subscription.

At the end of each Billing Cycle, your Subscription will automatically renew under the exact same conditions unless you cancel it or Omyx Ltd. cancels it. You may cancel your Subscription renewal either through your online account management page or by contacting Omyx Ltd. customer support team.

A valid payment method, including credit card or PayPal, is required to process the payment for your Subscription. You shall provide Omyx Ltd. with accurate and complete billing information including full name, address, state, zip code, telephone number, and a valid payment method information. By submitting such payment information, you automatically authorize Omyx Ltd. to charge all Subscription fees incurred through your account to any such payment instruments.

Should automatic billing fail to occur for any reason, Omyx Ltd. will issue an electronic invoice indicating that you must proceed manually, within a certain deadline date, with the full payment corresponding to the billing period as indicated on the invoice.

Free Trial
Omyx Ltd. may, at its sole discretion, offer a Subscription with a free trial for a limited period of time ("Free Trial").

You may be required to enter your billing information in order to sign up for the Free Trial.

Fee Changes
Omyx Ltd., in its sole discretion and at any time, may modify the Subscription fees for the Subscriptions. Any Subscription fee change will become effective at the end of the then-current Billing Cycle.

Omyx Ltd. will provide you with a reasonable prior notice of any change in Subscription fees to give you an opportunity to terminate your Subscription before such change becomes effective.

Your continued use of the Service after the Subscription fee change comes into effect constitutes your agreement to pay the modified Subscription fee amount.

Article 9. Termination

A Member may at any time and without the need to provide any reason end his/her Registration with us by requesting the closure of his/her account in the area of the website designated for such purposes. Such request shall be deemed effective from the first working day after receipt by us of the request for closure of the account concerned.

Without prejudice to the other provisions hereof, where the Member commits a serious breach of this Agreement, we will terminate the Member's account without prior notification or warning. Such termination shall have the same effects as a termination by the Member.

Without prejudice to the other provisions hereof, where the Member commits a breach of this Agreement, we will terminate the Member's account seven (7) days after having sent to the Member an email requesting unsuccessfully that he or she comply with this Agreement.

Without prejudice to the other provisions hereof, where we receive reports of a breach of this Agreement, including unacceptable conduct when meeting offline, in person, we may react to such reports and terminate a Member's account with immediate effect.

Such termination shall take effect without prejudice to any damages that we might claim from the Member or his/her beneficiaries and legal representatives, in compensation of the harm suffered as a result of such breaches.

The Member will be informed by email of the termination, or the confirmation of the termination, of his/her account. Data relating to the Member will be destroyed at his/her request or upon expiration of the legal time period following the termination of the Member's account.

Article 14. Functioning of the website and Services

To use the Services, the Member must have the necessary hardware equipment and software and the necessary parameters required to properly use the website e.g. access to the Internet. Members are also advised to have JavaScript functions, cookies and pop-ups enabled.

The Member must have the skills, hardware and software required to use the Internet or, as appropriate, Internet, telephone and Audiotel Services, and acknowledges that the characteristics and constraints of the Internet mean that the security, availability and integrity of Internet data transmissions cannot be guaranteed.

We do not guarantee that the Services will function if the Member activates a pop-up killing tool. In this case, the function should be deactivated before using the Service.

We do not guarantee that the Services will be usable if the Member's Internet Service Provider ("ISP") is unable to provide its services properly. In this context, we cannot be held responsible for the non-functioning, unavailability or adverse conditions of usage of the website resulting from incorrect hardware, problems experienced by the Member's ISP or blockages on the Internet networks or for all other reasons outside our sphere of influence. Moreover, due amongst other things to the specifics of their Internet browser, Members connecting through AOL may encounter problems making our sites function properly. Furthermore, smartphone applications are only available to our Members in possession of the smartphone handset and Internet access is required.

Under these conditions, we do not guarantee that the Services shall function without interruption or error. In particular, the use of our website may be interrupted at any time for the purposes of maintenance, updates or technical improvements, or to develop its content and/or presentation. Whenever possible, we shall inform Members prior to maintenance work or updates.

Apple users should use Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome - we do not guarantee optimal functioning of the website when using Safari or Opera browsers.

Depending on your network configuration (if protected behind a firewall or proxy), connection to our Messenger service may not be possible.

Article 15. Third party websites

We or third parties may provide links on our Site to third party websites. You use them at your own risk. We do not review, recommend or endorse such third party websites, nor are we responsible for their content or any goods or services offered thereon. If in the course of performing a search on our Site you encounter any third party website the use of which would violate applicable law, you must immediately refrain from and/or cease use of such website.

Article 16. Entire Agreement

This Agreement and the pages on the Site to which these terms refer, constitute a contract that governs the relationship between the Member and Omyx Ltd.. They cancel and replace any Agreement that may have been made in the past, even if not directly withdrawn or amended, and constitute the entirety of the rights and obligations of our Members.

If any of the provisions of these Terms and Conditions is declared void in application of a law, a regulation, or a final decision of a court having proper jurisdiction, all other provisions shall remain fully in effect. Furthermore, failure by a party to take action in respect of the breach by the other party of any provisions of these Terms and Conditions, shall not be interpreted as constituting a waiver by said first party of the right to take action in future in respect of such a breach.

Article 17. Amendments

We may modify these Terms and Conditions at any time. The Member will be informed of the nature of these modifications as soon as they are posted on the website. The modifications shall take effect one month after their posting on the website.

Article 18. Changes to Terms

We reserve the right, at our sole discretion, to modify or replace these Terms at any time. If a revision is material we will try to provide at least 30 days notice prior to any new terms taking effect. What constitutes a material change will be determined at our sole discretion.
