2. Use of Service
2.1. The description of the service
Self-Match (self-match.com) is an innovative dating site that provides its Users with tools to explore their compatibility by means of question exchange. Self-Match has many features of typical dating sites and some unique features available only on Self-Match like Pop-a-Question feature. Self-Match uses play currency known as Self-Match bucks or $M. Users earn and spend $M by accessing different Self-Match features. Self-Match is free to use and does not have any Usership levels. In-app purchases are available for Users to boost their accessibility of different features.
2.2 User profile, information sharing, and personal safety
When creating your profile, you agree to provide your real first name (will become public information), your last name (will be kept confidential), and other personal information that will become part of your public profile. If you choose to provide your phone number, it will not be displayed to the public. We will only call you if we have an issue that we cannot resolve over the email correspondence. You will not receive any marketing calls from Self-Match.
When providing any personal information or posting any personal content to Self-Match, please use extreme caution not to put any personally identifiable ques like your physical address, specific place of employment, etc. Keep in mind that Self-Match does not conduct the background check on its Users. We will do the best we can to protect you from any harassment that happens on Self-Match by banning the other User; however, if the harassment happens outside the usage of this service, we strongly encourage you to inform the local law enforcement authorities.
2.3 Use of questions and matching results
Self-Match uses a database of original questions that may appear randomly in different features or be chosen by a User. Self-Match does nor guarantee any compatibility between two Users when they produce matching responses. In the same way, Self-Match does not guarantee lack of compatibility when the Users produce non- matching responses. Self-Match leaves it up to the User to assess levels of compatibility based on multiple questions and responses.
2.4 Self-Match play currency
Self-Match uses $M as the site’s play currency. There are two types of $M: Silver and Gold. A User can earn Silver $M by engaging in question exchange features like Pop-a-Question running feature, popping random questions, sending specific questions, viewing partner’s responses, etc. A User needs $M to open partners’ profiles, send/read messages, upload additional photos, and be able to do other things on Self-Match.
Silver $M left in the User’s account will expire after 48 hours of inactivity.
The advantage of Golden $M is that they will not expire until used and that some features can be accessed only by paying with Gold $M. The User can purchase Gold $M or convert Silver $M to Gold $M for a fee.
If case if your payment was processed successfully but the Gold $M balance did not increase by the purchased or converted amount, please contact Self-Match.com at firstname.lastname@example.org. State your case and request a refund. We will investigate the reason for the fault and we will act reasonably in deciding whether to grant you a refund in true or play currency or not.
Self-Match reserves the right to change the $M price assigned to any action on the site at any time as well as the price of Gold $M
