  1. Definitions

    StrikeItUp is a Web site that provides an online community for people wishing to meet kindred spirits on the Internet. VoxTel, RNIS Telecommunications Inc. (An Electronic Group Ireland limited company, from Ireland), is the legal owner of the technology of StrikeItUp. In this General Terms of Use (hereinafter called G.T.U.),"you", "your", "member" or "members" refer to the legal owner and/or permanent user of the email address that has been used to register at StrikeItUp and "we", "us", "our", "Service", "Internet site" or "Web site" refer to StrikeItUp. The terms "account", "profile" and "personal profile" are used interchangeably in our G.T.U.

    A valid email address is needed to become a member, create an account or profile and to use the services of StrikeItUp. If the email address used to create the member's account is subsequently replaced with a new email address, then this new email address is used to identify the owner of the account. We will use the current email address to communicate with the member.

    The emails that we send to the member may contain hyperlinks some of which may directly log the member onto our Service without a nickname or a password. It is the member's responsibility to control the access to his/her email account and to verify his/her email address regularly.

    Our G.T.U. determines our obligations to the member and the member's obligations to us in relation to the member's use of our services. It is the member's responsibility to keep the log-in coordinates for our Service confidential.

    If the member has reason to believe that his/her account is no longer secure, the member must promptly change the password by updating its account information. The member is solely responsible for his/her account and for all activities that are conducted from and through this account.

  2. Service reserved strictly for the use of adults

We cannot guarantee that each member is at least the required minimum age and we are not responsible for any possibly resulting consequences thereof.

  3. Personal and unique membership

    In no case a member can sell, trade or cede his/her nickname and password to/with another person. A personal profile belongs to one member only and must be exclusively used by the member and by no one else. Any one member can only have one Personal Profile each.
