You agree that you will not:
1. Choice of username
Please use your first name when registering to encourage a personal approach between members. Member profiles with usernames containing words considered offensive or inappropriate, or in violation of the law, are excluded. Registering with multiple member accounts is strictly prohibited.
2. Profile pictures
On your profile you should upload a picture of yourself. Please observe the following rules when doing so:
Firstly, the picture must be clear and accurate in its depiction of you. The use of nude or pornographic pictures, or images displaying physical or sexual violence, is naturally prohibited. Also prohibited is the use of racist or offensive pictures or those of an advertising nature.
3. Personal description
Give a realistic impression of yourself. The content in your profile and messages should be truthful, authentic and not create unrealistic expectations you cannot meet at a personal meeting. Profiles containing clearly false information will be deleted by us and not suggested to other members.
Additionally, deleting and re-creating your account to get around other member’s Passes or Blocks of you is not acceptable. If we see excessive and suspicious account deletion activity we may ban your profile.
4. Fake Accounts
We do not tolerate any kind of fake accounts on AgapHEY. Your profile must be really of you, and must be for dating purposes.
Creating a fake account will get your main account as well as the fake account(s) banned.
Also, your profile details such as age, height, location, etc. must be accurate. We restrict searching and showing profiles based on mutual fit for details like age, location and gender for a reason: so that you can find a person who is looking for someone just like you. Changing these details to appear in searches that you would not otherwise is not allowed and will result in your profile being banned.
5. Couples/ Joint accounts
We do not allow joint accounts or couples accounts.
6. Solicitation/Real/cyber/cam/phone sex requests etc. are strictly prohibited
Using AgapHEY for commercial solicitation or exchange of money is prohibited. Do not share your own financial information (PayPal, Venmo, Amazon wishlist, etc.) for the purpose of receiving money or goods from other members. Do not attempt to get other member’s financial or other private information.
Do not send messages or create accounts for the purpose of driving members to a business or external site. This includes recruiting people for a hobby or activity if it’s not for dating purposes.
We also do not allow references to sugar daddy/baby dating, asking for gifts to date, wanting to be $poiled, etc, or phrases like “Send me $5 and see what happens” on your profile. This all falls under solicitation of money/goods and is not allowed.
Likewise, we also do not allow offers of money for sex, sugar daddies, acceptance of solicitation offers, etc.
Doing any of these will get you banned.
7. Message style
When looking for a partner your writing style is important. Your expression reveals much about you, so think about the impression your messages leave. Consider the following when sending messages to potential partners:
Take your time when you write to give the best impression of yourself
Make every message you send individual
Write with usual consideration of writing rules
Remember that using offensive language is prohibited
While the internet is anonymous, you speak with real and potential partners. The apparent distance given by the internet does not permit rudeness or otherwise inappropriate messages. Simply treat others how you would like to be treated, and don’t lose control or be inappropriate in conversations with other members.
9. Avoid misunderstandings
During the first stages of contact, be sensible with humour and sarcasm. Consider how your comments can be interpreted; the person you are talking to does not yet fully know you, and misunderstandings can happen in conversations lacking physical interaction.
10. Handling personal information
Don’t be too quick to share your personal information or ask for the person’s you are talking to. We often have a tendency to share intimate details when a message exchange looks promising, but try to ask yourself whether you would be as open if you were meeting in person.
11. Ending contact
If you have no interest in further contact with a member, let them know politely. A short honest message allows them to continue their search without a long wait. If you receive such a message, respect the decision and do not send more messages to this user.
Messages should be kept confidential. Only with the permission of the sender should communication be shared with a third party.
13. Objectionable content
Violent, racist, politically extremist, sexist, vulgar or otherwise objectionable content, or material that injures, offends, causes or threatens harm to other individuals or groups is not tolerated.

14. Report rogue users
AgapHEY protects you by manually approving profiles and using automated processes that eliminate spam and fake profiles. Nevertheless, it is sometimes possible that inappropriate content is not immediately seen, and we appreciate your help in maintaining the quality of the site by notifying us when users do not adhere to these guidelines. Abuse of the report function may lead to a block being placed on the account.
Examples of Reason to Report:
Who have offensive or inappropriate usernames
Who display offensive or inappropriate photos
Who use offensive or inappropriate messaging
Who ask you for private information
Who ask you to send them money
Who ask you to send them sexually explicit content
Who are harassing you and contacting you when you have asked them not to
15. Offsite behavior
We do ban members for extreme off site behavior. Please report any instances of off site abuse, assault, harassment, stalking, theft, or anything else illegal or that makes you feel unsafe. (Note: we will not tell the person you’re reporting to us that you have reported them or why they were reported).
In these cases, we encourage you to reach out to law enforcement as well, who we will cooperate with where needed.
A note on false reporting:
In some cases we will ban an account if we’ve found it to be creating false reports against other users. This includes false/ made up reports of bad behavior, etc.
15.1 Real-life Meet-ups
AgapHEY advises Members who wish to arrange “real-life” meet-ups to be vigilant. Members are solely responsible for verifying the identity of those with whom they meet.
“Real-life” meet-ups are arranged independently of AgapHEY and are the sole responsibility of Members. AgapHEY cannot be held liable for any acts or problems of any type which have been committed or caused by Members and/or former Members when such events occur following use of the Application.
In this respect, one of the intended benefits of the AgapHEY messaging service, again to ensure that Members remain safe and free from harassment, is to enable Members to decide which people should be allowed to see their profiles and talk to them.
For safety reasons, AgapHEY strongly advises that real-life meetings be arranged only in busy public places or that a friend or relative be informed of the meeting and that Members disclose their contact information only after a reasonable period of time.
The cost of equipment (hardware or software) required to access the Services together with all other costs related thereto, including telecommunications costs, shall be borne
17. Consequences for violations of the code of conduct
All content given by members is checked and, if necessary, violations of the aforementioned guidelines are treated accordingly. Breaches of this code of conduct or the terms and conditions will bring a warning or immediate deletion of the profile at our discretion, and can result in further legal action.
(we will notify the winner via email on Nov. 26th)
