We may modify these Terms at any time without notice to you by posting revised Terms on our site. Your use of our site constitutes your binding acceptance of these Terms, including any modifications that we make.
 

Some of the Services may be subject to additional posted conditions. Your use of those Services is subject to those conditions, which are incorporated into these Terms by reference. In the event of an inconsistency between these Terms and any additional posted conditions, the provisions of the additional conditions shall prevail.

Mass-messaging ("Spamming"):

We reserve the right to block the messaging function, or fully delete the member profile, of any member we deem to be mass-messaging other members of the site. Our judgement of this will be based on the number of unsolicited messages sent (i.e. those sent without a previous correspondence established), and whether this is well above a number considered reasonable for making general introductions.

 

Paid membership

These membership Terms and conditions constitute an entire agreement for the purchase of any paid membership packages and supersede any prior agreement or arrangement with users regarding free membership or offers. Fees are subject to change.

All orders for membership subscriptions made by users of the site shall be deemed to be an offer to purchase such membership subscriptions according to these Terms and conditions. Acceptance by us of an offer by users shall take the form of a notification by us that a payment transaction has been processed successfully.
Paid membership entitles users to put up extra information about themselves on the site and also to make contact with other members and organise to meet in real situations. Any contact is to be made via the messaging, chat or forum functions of the site. This is the sole purpose of the site.
 

Price and payment

The price shall be the price quoted on your accepted order and listed on the site in the "Upgrade" section on the date in question. Payment is by credit card and is secure.

 

Cancellation

Users may cancel a membership subscription at any time once it is paid for, by sending an email to info@overfiftiesfriends.co.uk with the subject "cancel membership". The user's membership profile will be removed at the earliest convenience. We cannot however refund paying users for the cancellation. If for any reason you are unhappy with the membership subscription once subscribed, please send feedback to the same email address and we will do our best to address your complaint.

When registering on O.F.F, you will be asked to give information about yourself, including your email address. If you purchase anything from us or our payment partner, you will also need to give your credit card number and expiry date.

 

We gather this information to enable us to process your registration and to communicate with you on any matters relating to your membership or purchases of O.F.F.'s services in general.
