Terms and conditions for Club Gorgeous and Gorgeous Networks Matchmaking and other services.
Services are not transferable. You cannot transfer your service to another person. You can not transfer your service to another of our services. OurT&C's are updated occasionally.
With our Club Gorgeous services we only act as facilitators. We are not liable if we cannot secure the introductions you request if mutual agreement cannot be gained. We do not guarantee you any introductions during the length of your members. We only offer members opportunities and try our best to facilitate your chosen introductions. Members can opt to select no more than 2-3 profiles per month to view - 15 for the duration of a six month membership . we can seek to introduce you to all the profiles that you select (Subject to mutual agreement to meet) Guest members only entitles the member to be selected as a potential match for a full CG Client or matchmaking client.
We are bound by the number of members joining our services in each particular age and gender and age category, however we collaborate with over 50 other matchmakers so our network is extensive and if we have agreed to take you on we will always have enough people to propose.
The Club Gorgeous membership is not a highly targeted matchmaking service - hence the considerably lower fee. The membership was introduced to help build our clients network of vetted, filtered profiles that we deem could potentially be a good fit based on the information and preferences we have established from the client and also using the matchmakers expertise. We cannot guarantee that all 'wish list boxes/preferences' are met. However we will ensure that some of the preferences are met and using our expertise that the profile could be a good potential long term partner.
We do not tolerate bad and unacceptable behaviour either to other clients or towards our staff. Memberships will be revoked if we consider your behaviour to be unacceptable. This includes constant badgering to our staff if a client is unhappy or frustrated through no fault of ours. Such as if a client has been turned down or does not see any profiles that appeal to them, as we cannot guarantee mutual agreement to meet and we cannot guarantee that there will be consistently members joining in your preferred demographic that appeal to you. We only act as a facilitator and help bring you romance opportunities for a value for money service. If clients wish to be guaranteed a certain amount of introductions we offer a higher value matchmaking service and we can also refer you to other matchmaking services from our collaborating partners.
We often are able to display profiles who are members from other collaborating agencies. We expect our members to be courteous and pleasant to anyone that we introduce them to. We take complaints very seriously. If you have a complaint about another member you must put it in writing to us at firstname.lastname@example.org - we will always investigate and act upon complaints.
We sometimes allow members profiles to stay on our profile list once their membership has terminated. If this agreement is reached between client and GN we can still make introductions if another member requests to see your profile. If you wish your profile to be removed from our members area when you contract expires please put this in writing.
