Massage. It is possible through the improper use and practice of massage to cause temporary and/or permanent bodily injury. Users of this site are not vetted for competency to practice massage of any type and as a user you accept that you may sustain injury when participating in massage practices with another site user. By engaging in massage practices with any other site user you accept that you have been satisfied that that person is competent to carry on such practices. You further accept that except in case of malicious intent or deception by any other site user you will not hold liable that user for any injuries you sustain by them.
Massage Exchange. Your agreement to exchange massage with any other site user is an agreement between that user and you and as such is a separate contract from this one in terms of contract fulfilment. You are advised to satisfy yourself that the terms under which you individually agree to exchange massage with each other site user are acceptable to you. You agree that should there be any dispute between you and another user, you accept that Massage-Exchange.co.uk is not liable in any way. Where another site user has failed on their agreement with you, you should advise Massage-Exchange.co.uk by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org with the details, in order that we can properly maintain good and proper use of this site.
Fees/Termination. Massage-Exchange.co.uk's usage and/or subscription fees were provided to you upon registration and may change from time to time. If changes do occur, your subscription current at that time will remain valid until its expiry. The site reserves the right to terminate your access to the site for any reason or no reason. The site may terminate your membership upon sending notice to you at the email address you provide in your membership registration or such other email address as you may later provide to us. If Massage Exchange terminates your membership to the site's service because you have breached this Agreement, you will not be entitled to any refund of any unused subscription fees. Even after this Agreement is terminated, parts relevant to the protection of the site's members, the site's commercial integrity and the site's general protection, of this agreement remain effective. The services of a paid membership include access to members' full profile's and access to the site's internal messaging tool. On first access to the site after an upgrade you agree that the services of the site have been rendered and cannot be returned in the same condition as provided and as such are not refundable. After payment for an upgrade you have 14 days to cancel and request a refund where you have not subsequently accessed the site. Where the service provided by the site is withdrawn or unavailable temporarily to members as a result of site based error, downed hosting, infection by virus or the like etc, in which case members will be credited with the proportional amount of time to their subscription periods for the time during which the site was not fully operable. Time periods will be rounded up to the full day. If the majority of the services provided by the site are permanently withdrawn you will be due a credit equal to the amount paid for the current subscription period less the amount that would have been paid for the expired portion of that subscriptions period.
Guaranteed Partnership Memberships. Some membership upgrade options may be advertised specifically as being 'GUARENTEED PARTNERSHIP MEMBERSHIPS'. These upgrade options are each provided with their own number of guaranteed partnerships. A partnership is defined as a massage exchange on at least one occasion with a member or the exchange of external contact details (email addresses, telephone numbers addresses etc) with another member. Multiple exchanges with the same member are defined as one partnership. Massage exchanges do require the exchange of contact details for practical reasons, sometimes arrangement for the exchange fails. The site is not able to monitor such failures and the member accepts this. Any provision of external contact information will therefore also be considered as a successful partnership with that member. If you are not successful in finding the defined number of partnerships within the period of the upgraded membership you may apply via the site's Contact Us page for an upgrade extension. Such applications may be made up to 31 days after the expiry of the current upgraded period. An email will be sent (receipt can not be guaranteed) as advise that your paid period is has ended but members are required to monitor the expiry status of their accounts for themselves. The site's admin will then review your internal messages to see if an extension is warranted and will apply extra time to your paid period so far as is needed for the fulfilment of the partnership guarantee in force. Reapplications for upgrade extensions may be made as is necessary.
