4. GENERAL STATEMENT REGARDING SERVICES OF WEB SITE, OPERATIONAL MATTERS, PRICING AND CREDIT CARD POLICIES
4.1 The Company applies NO FEES to You for access to the Web Site, including unlimited and totally unrestricted access to Chathosts' Profiles, Guest Chat, Discussion Forums and uncensored archive photographs published by the Chathosts on the Web Site. Access to live Videochat rooms may require additional charges at the discretion of the individual Chathost. If such charges do apply, then these charges are prominently displayed prior to entering the fee-based Videochat Rooms, giving You the Viewer plenty of opportunity to decline this chargeable service if You do not wish to incur any additional fees.
4.2 Any chargeable Video Sessions entered into by You are governed by separate terms and conditions between You and the Chathost, which you agree to at the time of entering any chargeable Video Session. The amounts charged and payable by You are due and payable to the Chathost for the services provided by the Chathost to You, although the Company is responsible for the physical collection of the charges from You through the Web Site and for the remittance of those charges to the Chathosts. The amount remitted to the Chathosts by the Company is net of the amount due by the Chathosts to the Web Site for the services provided by the Web Site to the Chathosts, such services including but not limited to billing, credit card processing and other debt collection services.
4.3 The services offered by the Web Site to You shall be deemed to benothing more than the provision of a facility, a technology platform and infrastructure providing text and pictorial information and a text-messaging facility, whereby You, the Viewer, and Chathosts are able to meet in a community-like environment and discuss between you whether You and the Chathost wish to enter into an agreement for the provision of chargeable services from the Chathost to You. As stated in 4.1, no charges are made to You for these services.
4.4 Neither the Web Site nor the Company is the provider of any of the chargeable services offered by Chathosts,and the Company does not publish any of the archive photographs relating to the Chathosts. All Chathosts are independent agents broadcasting live video directly from their own homes or work place. The Web Site merely acts as a venue, or platform, where You, the Viewer, can review advertisements and contact information placed on the Web Site by the independent Chathosts and make contact with the independent Chathosts. If You chose to engage in a chat with any of the Chathosts, You will be dealing and communicating directly with the Chathost, and not with any agent or employee of the Web Site or the Company, and every time you enter into a session with a Chathost you will be subject to the terms and conditions of the Chathost, which can be found here. None of the Chathosts are controlled by Web Site or the Company, but are operating at all times completely as independent parties, and as businesses in their own right. Therefore, neither the Web Site nor the Company is responsible for the quality or the content of any of the Video Sessions between You and Chathosts. The Chathosts are entirely free to choose which platforms on which to advertise their services, when to provide those services, to whom to provide those services, how much to charge for those services and all other elements of choice regarding how they operate their own businesses in providing their services. Neither the Web Site nor the Company can or does get involved in those matters, and they are all matters for discussion between You and the Chathost in negotiating if and when You wish to receive any services from the Chathost.
4.5 As stated in 4.2, although neither the Web Site nor the Company are the provider of chargeable Video Services offered by Chathosts, the Company does act as agent on behalf of Chathosts in providing billing facilities for the Chathosts who have decided to charge for their Video Sessions. All amounts billed to you by the Company are strictly on behalf of Chathosts providing you with chargeable services. If You have any queries regarding billing matters, You may email the Company using the details found on the "Contact Us" page of Web Site stating the nature of Your query.
4.6 Refund & Cancellation Policy. If You feel that any Chathost did not perform the services that they specifically agreed to perform for You during a chargeable Video Session or You experienced technical difficulties that You made a sincere effort to resolve, please contact the Company using the details provided on the "Contact Us" page and let Us know the nature of Your complaints. Please be advised that the maximum time for making the credit claim following an incident is one week. If Your complaints are legitimate We will refund your credit card or credit your account with the appropriate amount. If the refund or credit given results from a matter within the control of the Chathost then the Chathost will bear the cost of that refund or credit.
4.7 WARNING! By accepting these Terms and Conditions You agree to contact us if You have any disagreement with the charges made to Your credit card BEFORE YOU CONTACT YOUR credit card company for the purpose of cancelling any charges ("charge-back"). You must either email or telephone Us stating the reason why You dispute the charges. This will then enable Us to assess Your complaint and, if justified, refund Your credit card with the disputed amount.
To avoid any misunderstandings that negatively impact Your credit rating and put Your credit card on a *black-list*, please read the Credit Card Fraud Warning.
4.8 If you choose one of the services provided by a Chathost which attracts a charge to your credit card, it will be shown on your credit card statement as CC Europe Net, CC Europe Netherlands, CC Network EU or CC Network (EU)
4.9 The currency used by the Web Site and billed to your credit card can be a variety of currencies depending on the Sales Agent / Payment Processor used to handle your payments. These can include, but are not limited to, US dollars, euros and British pounds. Your bank may impose transaction charges and/or conversion fees – please contact your credit card issuer for more information.
4.10 The Web Site may make available the capability for You to make payments on account. Any such payment on account is simply a deposit, to be applied against any future chargeable services that You contract for with one or more Chathosts. This mechanism is provided only to allow You the flexibility in settling your account with Chathosts. The deposit does not represent any sort of transaction between You and the Company. The Company is merely acting as agent for the Chathosts in accepting and holding your deposit, and in remitting your deposit to Chathosts if and when you contract any chargeable services directly with one or more Chathosts. The Company does not make any charge to You for holding the deposit. The deposit service is one of the many services provided by the Company and its other group companies to Chathosts, for which Chathosts make payment. Your deposit, or, if less, any portion of it that remains after settling any charges for services contracted by and provided to You by Chathosts, is refundable at any time by making a request to Customer Services.
