2. Members and Clients
People with an interest in the services we provide may join chatnlunch.com either as members or as clients for the payment of a fees stated in the next section.

3. Fees 
To join chatnlunch.com and avail our matchmaking and dating services, you must pay an initial fee. In case you decide to terminate your membership at any point in time, you will not be subject to a refund of this fee.

After you register with us as a client, chatnlunch.com will examine and delve into its database to provide you with the most suitable match. The time required for this part of the activity is usually within two weeks but can take up to 6 months. If the company fails to come up with a suitable match after a period of 6 months has passed since the moment of registration, the client will be subject to a refund. However, if there are modifications and alterations in the matches’ requirements after the match has been provided, the company is not liable to refund the fee. If the client forms a relationship with the match found, there will be no refund.

Chatnlunch.com holds the right to modify the membership fee at any point in time, without any prior notification.

4. Usage of Membership
Conveyance of information with chatnlunch.com with respect to dates and appointments that have been arranged: Chatnlunch.com will primarily communicate with its registered users through phone calls, SMS, or emails to impart information about your match and dates. Even so, should you ever need to communicate with the website in case of an emergency, you are encouraged to inform us of the situation via phone call and not a text message. The matters of emergency may include arriving late for an appointment, rescheduling a date, being sick, and others. The clients and members are encouraged to communicate this information within our office timings.

4.1. Affirmation of Dates and Appointments: After the website has confirmed the availability of all parties involved, it will proceed to set up the appointment. This includes the date, the time, and the location. Once all parties have been sent out a conformational SMS, email, or phone call, the date is considered to be confirmed. Before the date is to take place, the company will send you an SMS as a reminder. We encourage our clients to reply to the reminder SMS to ensure that it has been received and viewed.

4.2. Cancellation of Affirmed Dates and Appointments: If you find yourself in a situation where you cannot attend a confirmed date, you must notify the website at least 48 hours in advance. Failing to do so will have the unattended date counted as a date. The number of dates allotted to you through your subscription will reduce by one.

4.3. Rescheduling of Affirmed Dates and Appointments: If you find yourself in a situation where you cannot attend a confirmed date at the given time, you have the option to reschedule it. However, if a confirmation email, SMS, or phone call has already been sent out 3 times or more by the company, rescheduling the date will still deduct from the total number of dates entitled to you according to your subscription plan. This may happen even if the actual date did not take place.

4.4. Failure to Turn Up for Dates: If you stand up your match and fail to turn up for any confirmed date without a 48-hour prior notice, the chatnlunch.com management reserves the right to confiscate the entire amount of your subscription fee.

4.5. Dating Etiquette: All registered users of chatnlunch.com must dress appropriately for all dates and appointments. During the date, they are expected to treat their match with respect and employ proper social behaviour. In the event that the website receives a complaint from your match at any time, we reserve the right to cancel the subscription of the guilty party effective immediately. Any dues will not be refunded to the guilty party but will be withheld by the company.

4.6. Suspension of Membership: Clients have the option to opt out of our services for up to 90 days. Doing this will lengthen the period for your subscription after you return from your break. In order to suspend a subscription, clients must notify the company through an email. The temporary suspension of your subscription begins upon the receipt of your written notice by the company and will be lifted upon the receipt of a written notice that communicates your wish to return.

5.3. You must agree to not disclose or share any personal information obtained from our website to a third party. Clients who breach this clause are liable to a heavy fine and possible termination of their membership.

5.4. In the event that the website receives a complaint from a match relating to any form of harassment or abuse caused by a registered user, the website may cancel his or her membership immediately without any refund. The client may also be required to pay a heavy compensation for his behaviour.

6. Termination
A client’s membership is automatically terminated when he or she is in a relationship. This includes having a partner, fiancé/fiancée, or a spouse. This applies whether the partner was found through chatnlunch or not. Members must not conceal their relationship status in order to avoid termination of their subscription. We ask our clients to notify us of any alteration in their relationship status immediately. In case you fail to do so and the company becomes aware of it, your membership will be terminated effective immediately and you will be subject to no refund.
