Terms of Use

Last revised on January 7, 2021.

Welcome to Monet Dating, Inc. (“us,” “we,” the “Company” or “Monet”). This is a contract between you and Monet (as defined further below) and we want you to know yours and our rights before you use the Monet application ("App"). Please take a few moments to read these Terms before enjoying the App, because once you access, view or use the App, you are going to be legally bound by these Terms.

1. Monet Rules

Before you can use our App, you will need to register for an account ("Account"). In order to create an Account you must:

  1. be at least 18 years old; and
  2. be legally permitted to use the App by the laws of your home country.

You can create an Account via registration by phone number or email. For more information about what information we use and how we use it, please check out our Privacy Policy. We cannot allow you to use another person's Account without permission.

You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your login credentials you use to sign up for Monet, and you are solely responsible for all activities that occur under those credentials. If you think someone has gained access to your account, please immediately contact us. If you feel the need to leave, you can delete your Account at any time by going to the ‘Account’ page when you are logged in and clicking on 'Delete Account’. Your Account will be deleted immediately. We reserve the right at our sole discretion to terminate or suspend any Account, or make use of any operational, technological, legal or other means available to enforce the Terms (including without limitation blocking specific IP addresses), at any time without liability and without the need to give you prior notice.

You may not access, tamper with, or use non-public areas of the App or our systems. Certain portions of the App may not be accessible if you have not registered for an Account.

2. Types of Content

There are three types of content that you will be able to access on the App:

  1. content that you upload and provide ("Your Content");
  2. content that members provide ("Member Content"); and
  3. content that Monet provides ("Our Content").

There is certain content we can't allow on Monet. We want our users to be able express themselves as much as possible on Monet, but we have to impose restrictions on certain content which:

You have artistic license to be creative, but in no way, shape, or form does creativity enable hatefulness and harassment. Monet operates a zero-tolerance policy for this kind of content. For more information, reference our Community Guidelines.

Your Content

As Your Content is unique, you are responsible and liable for Your Content and will indemnify, defend, release, and hold us harmless from any claims made in connection with Your Content.

You may not display any personal contact or banking information on your individual profile page whether in relation to you or any other person (for example, names, home addresses or postcodes, telephone numbers, email addresses, URLs, credit/debit card or other banking details). If you do choose to reveal any personal information about yourself to other users, whether via email or otherwise, it is at your own risk. We encourage you to use the same caution in disclosing details about yourself to third parties online as you would under any other circumstances.

As Monet is a public community, Your Content will be visible to other users of the App all around the world instantly - so make sure you are comfortable sharing Your Content before you post. As such, you agree that Your Content may be viewed by other users and any person visiting, participating in or who is sent a link to the App (e.g. individuals who receive a link to a user’s profile or shared content from other Monet Users). By uploading Your Content on Monet, you represent and warrant to us that you have all necessary rights and licences to do so.

We have the right to remove, edit, limit or block access to any of Your Content at any time, and we have no obligation to display or review Your Content.

Member Content

Other members of Monet will also share content via the App. Member Content belongs to the user who posted the content and is stored on our servers and displayed via the App at the direction of the user providing the Member Content.

Although Monet reserves the right to review and remove Content that violates this Agreement, such Content is the sole responsibility of the member who posts it, and Monet cannot guarantee that all Content will comply with this Agreement. If you see Content on the Service that violates this Agreement, please report it within the Service.

You do not have any rights in relation to other users' Member Content, and you may only use other Monet users' personal information to the extent that your use of it matches Monet’s purpose of allowing people to meet one another. You may not use other users' information for commercial purposes, to spam, to harass, or to make unlawful threats. We reserve the right to terminate your Account if you misuse other users' information.

We grant you a non-exclusive, limited, personal, non-transferable, revocable, licence to access and use Our Content, without the right to sublicense, under the following conditions:

  1. you shall not use, sell, modify, or distribute Our Content except as permitted by the functionality of the App;
  2. you shall not use our name in metatags, keywords and/or hidden text;
  3. you shall not create derivative works from Our Content or commercially exploit Our Content, in whole or in part, in any way; and

4. Push Notifications, Location-Based Features

We may provide you with emails, text messages, push notifications, alerts and other messages related to the App and/or the Monet services, such as enhancements, offers, products, events, and other promotions. After downloading the App, you will be asked to accept or deny push notifications/alerts. If you deny, you will not receive any push notifications/alerts.

With respect to other types of messaging or communications, such as emails, text messages, etc., you can unsubscribe or opt out by either following the specific instructions included in such communications, or by emailing us with your request here.

After downloading the App, you will be asked to accept or deny location services. If allowed, the App will determine your location using one or more reference points, such as GPS, Bluetooth and/or software within your mobile device. If you have set your mobile device to disable GPS, Bluetooth or other location determining software or do not authorise the App to access your location data, you will not be able to access such location-specific content, products, services and materials.

6. Disclaimers

MONET PROVIDES THE SERVICE ON AN “AS IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE” BASIS AND TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, GRANTS NO WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, WHETHER EXPRESS, IMPLIED, STATUTORY OR OTHERWISE WITH RESPECT TO THE SERVICE (INCLUDING ALL CONTENT CONTAINED THEREIN), INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF SATISFACTORY QUALITY, MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE OR NON-INFRINGEMENT. Monet DOES NOT REPRESENT OR WARRANT THAT (A) THE SERVICE WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED, SECURE OR ERROR FREE, (B) ANY DEFECTS OR ERRORS IN THE SERVICE WILL BE CORRECTED, OR (C) THAT ANY CONTENT OR INFORMATION YOU OBTAIN ON OR THROUGH THE SERVICE WILL BE ACCURATE.

MONET TAKES NO RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANY CONTENT THAT YOU OR ANOTHER MEMBER OR THIRD PARTY POSTS, SENDS OR RECEIVES THROUGH THE SERVICE. ANY MATERIAL DOWNLOADED OR OTHERWISE OBTAINED THROUGH THE USE OF THE SERVICE IS ACCESSED AT YOUR OWN DISCRETION AND RISK.

MONET DISCLAIMS AND TAKES NO RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANY CONDUCT OF YOU OR ANY OTHER MEMBER, ON OR OFF THE SERVICE.

THE FOREGOING SHALL APPLY EVEN IF WE WERE ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. IF YOU BECOME DISSATISFIED IN ANY WAY WITH THE APP OR SITE, YOUR SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDY IS TO STOP YOUR USE OF THE APP AND SITE.

YOU HEREBY WAIVE ANY AND ALL CLAIMS ARISING OUT OF YOUR USE OF THE APP OR SITE. BECAUSE SOME STATES DO NOT ALLOW THE DISCLAIMER OF IMPLIED WARRANTIES OR THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF CERTAIN TYPES OF DAMAGES, THESE PROVISIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. IF ANY PORTION OF THIS LIMITATION ON LIABILITY IS FOUND TO BE INVALID OR UNENFORCEABLE FOR ANY REASON, THEN OUR AGGREGATE LIABILITY SHALL NOT EXCEED ONE HUNDRED DOLLARS ($100).

THE LIMITATION OF LIABILITY HEREIN IS A FUNDAMENTAL ELEMENT OF THE BASIS OF THE BARGAIN AND REFLECTS A FAIR ALLOCATION OF RISK. THE APP AND SITE WOULD NOT BE PROVIDED WITHOUT SUCH LIMITATIONS AND YOU AGREE THAT THE LIMITATIONS AND EXCLUSIONS OF LIABILITY, DISCLAIMERS AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDIES SPECIFIED HEREIN WILL SURVIVE EVEN IF FOUND TO HAVE FAILED IN THEIR ESSENTIAL PURPOSE.

8. Entire Agreement; Other

This Agreement, along with the Privacy Policy and Safety Tips, and any terms disclosed to you if you purchase or have purchased additional features, products or services we offer on the Service, contains the entire agreement between you and Monet regarding your relationship with Monet and the use of the Service. If any provision of this Agreement is held invalid, the remainder of this Agreement shall continue in full force and effect. The failure of Monet to exercise or enforce any right or provision of this Agreement shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. You agree that your Monet account is non-transferable and all of your rights to your account and its Content terminate upon your death. No agency, partnership, joint venture, fiduciary or other special relationship or employment is created as a result of this Agreement and you may not make any representations on behalf of or bind Monet in any manner.

8. Miscellaneous

These Terms, which we may amend from time to time, constitute the entire agreement between you and Monet. The Terms supersede all previous agreements, representations and arrangements between us (written or oral). Nothing in this clause shall limit or exclude any liability for fraudulent misrepresentation.

Monet has taken reasonable steps to ensure the currency, availability, correctness and completeness of the information contained on Monet and provides that information on an "as is", "as available" basis. Monet does not give or make any warranty or representation of any kind about the information contained on Monet, whether express or implied. Use of Monet and the materials available on it is at your sole risk. Monet can not be held responsible for any loss arising from the transmission, use of data, or inaccurate User Content.

You are responsible for taking all necessary precautions to ensure that any material you may obtain from Monet is free of viruses or other harmful components. You accept that Monet will not be provided uninterrupted or error free, that defects may not be corrected or that Monet, or the server that makes it available, are free of viruses or bugs, spyware, Trojan horse or any similar malicious software.

As Monet grows, we might have to make changes to these Terms so we reserve the right to modify, amend or change the Terms at any time (a "Change"). If we do this then the Changes will be posted on this page and we will indicate the Effective Date of the updates at the top of the Terms. In certain circumstances, we may send an email to you notifying you of a Change. You should regularly check this page for notice of any Changes – we want our users to be as informed as possible.

Your continued use of Monet following any Change constitutes your acceptance of the Change and you will be legally bound by the new updated Terms. If you do not accept any Changes to the Terms, you should stop using Monet immediately.
