The following terms and conditions are to be adhered to by all DIY-Dating webmasters at all times unless otherwise stated
The DIY-Dating system is operated by Leamore Internet LTD. Throughout this document this will be referred to as LIL.
If you use your own domain name and your domain name moves away from our system,
we reserve the right to holdback all outstanding payments for up to 1 year. If you use one of our free domain names and terminate your account this is reduced to 6 months.
This is to cover for any chargebacks we may receive due to service interruption,
following the domain moving away from our system. If chargebacks amount to more than
the amount we are holding, LIL reserve the right to seek these chargebacks from you via
LIL reserve the right to move profiles from sites where the domain name is no longer pointing to our system over to another site on our system that is part of the same database.
This is to make sure the customer can continue to use the services they had access to before the domain moved away from our system.
If any outstanding payments that LIL holds back as a result of "section 1"
do not cover the total chargebacks amount that LIL has already paid out to you,
LIL may seek any financial costs incurred as a result refunding customers due to
loss of service.
A minimum payout threshold is in place for all commission payouts. In order for commission to be issued, a set amount of commission from initial upgrades must be generated for the payout period in question.
The threshold on commission of UK-based webmasters is £100.
For webmasters based outside the UK, the minimum payout threshold is £100 or $200 depending on which currency thay have chosen to be paid in.
Recurring commission (rebills)
Commission is paid on on all recurring subscription transactions where the site in question qualifies and re-billing has been activated.
The same minimum payout threshold applies to recurring payouts as does to commission generated via initial upgrades.
For example; if a site generates commission from recurring transactions but has not generated revenue above the minimum payout threshold from initial upgrades, commission will be retained and rolled over to the next payout period. Commission will carry on rolling over to the next payout period until the minimum payout thresold from initial upgrade commission is surpassed.
If you are using a free sub-domain provided
by LIL via the DIY-Dating system:- The domain name and site URL remain
the property of ‘Leamore Internet LTD’ and cannot be sold or
transferred to other parties
You may not create false profiles within your site.
False profiles include but are not restricted to:
Profiles that contain pictures and/or
information that does not relate to the person that created the profile.
Profiles that are fictitious/made up.
Profiles that are created for marketing purposes i.e. contacting non-full site members with a message to generate an upgrade.
Profiles that have been created for self-promotion.
Profiles that are clearly fake. i.e. a profile including obviously fake pictures for example a picture of a well known celebrity which the user claims to be them.
The DIY-Dating system is intended to allow its members to contact each other
with the intention of creating relationships, personal encounters and casual
friendships. The same rules apply to webmasters with profiles on the system as
to regular site members.
Upgrades will not be paid out where webmasters have paid for an upgrade via their own site, effectively with a view to gaining a half price membership.
One hundred profile free six month upgrades are to be used in the same way as a standard fully upgraded membership. It is NOT intended to be used as a marketing tool.
You may not use our internal messaging system to contact users in an attempt to gain commission for your site
You may not add services to your site that would confuse the customer into thinking

For Non-Niche sites,
the Hostname, Site name and content must be
generic and not considered offensive. For example, a site that is promoted as
being a site solely for the rural farming community is considered too specific as
the database contains a vast mixture of profiles. Any users that join the site
thinking that it is going to be filled with rural folk will most
probably disappointed when they find it difficult to find what they are looking
for. Care must be taken with wording on the front page.

in-appropriate will be removed.
Links to external messaging systems that would enable customers to bypass the need to upgrade their account, eg forums, newsgroups etc will be removed.
Links to external sites must not be positioned in a manner that would
obstruct the standard navigation of our system. This also includes
the use of pop-ups and pop-unders, both of which are strictly forbidden.
Do NOT make the site out to be a personal site or club revolving around a single person.
For example, do NOT create a site called SexyKaty.com with intro text
saying "welcome to my web site, meet me inside!".
If customers are misled, they will more than likely cancel their account.
Do NOT include personal details on the pages of your site. For example;
do not include a sentence such as: my name is Fred, I am the webmaster of this site
and my e-mail address is email@example.com.
Such sentences will be removed without notice.

Prices are to be included in the upgrade section of the site only.
