In order to access certain areas and features of our Services, you will need to register for an account. You agree to (a) create a unique password that you do not use with any other online product or service; (b) provide accurate, truthful, current and complete information when creating an account; (c) maintain and promptly update your account information upon any changes; (d) maintain the security of your account by protecting your password and restricting access to your account; (e) promptly notify Travel-Meet if you discover or otherwise suspect any security breaches related to the Services; and (f) take responsibility for all activities that occur under your account and accept all risks of any authorized or unauthorized access.
Remember, the Travel-Meet Services are just a platform that enable you to communicate and interact with other people around the world. We cannot be responsible for the interactions that you have with other Travel-Meet members, so please use good judgment and keep safety in mind when you use our Services.
3.2 Identity Verification. We cannot and do not confirm each member’s identity. Travel-Meet does not represent or warrant that our tools are sufficient to determine whether it is appropriate for you to interact with another member. Further, we do not endorse any persons who use or register for our Services. We do not investigate or verify any member’s reputation, conduct, morality, criminal background, or any information members may submit to the Services. We encourage you to take precautions when interacting with other members, particularly when meeting a stranger in person for the first time.
3.3 Member-Hosted Events; Travel-Meet Ambassadors. Members may organize in-person meetings and host events for other Travel-Meet members; however, these events are not sponsored or endorsed by Travel-Meet and members attend such meetings and events at their own risk. In addition, Travel-Meet members may sign up to become Travel-Meet Ambassadors (or members of a successor program) and contribute their time to activities that support the Travel-Meet community, such as meeting new members, organizing events and answering questions. Travel-Meet Ambassadors (or members of a successor program) are not agents of Travel-Meet and Travel-Meet is not responsible or liable for any acts or omissions of these members.
3.4 Release. Because our Services are merely a platform, in the event that you have a dispute with one or more members, you release us (and our officers, directors, members, employees, agents and affiliates) from claims, demands and damages (actual and consequential) of every kind and nature, known and unknown, suspected and unsuspected, disclosed and undisclosed, arising out of or in any way connected with such disputes.
