Payment of the joining fee is acceptance to these terms and conditions.

Lyons Elite may change these terms and conditions from time to time. The most recent version of these terms and conditions will always appear on this page. Your continued use of Lyons Elite’s services will constitute acceptance of such changes.

2. Eligibility and Membership

(i) you are at least 18 years old;
(ii) you are single or separated from your spouse;
(iii) your personal information is true, accurate and complete;

2.3 Lyons Elite reserve the right to refuse any membership application at its sole discretion and without giving a reason.

3. Your Rights and Responsibilities

3.1 As soon as you have completed your initial meeting with Lyons Elite we will begin assessing potential introductions. Lyons Elite offer different levels and types of membership which will be explained to you in person at your initial meeting with the company. We will use our reasonable efforts to introduce you to potential partners who we think may be suited to you.

3.2 You accept that the more limitations you impose on the type of person you would like to meet, the fewer introductions may result. You also accept that Lyons Elite cannot control whether another member wishes to reply to any communication from you, nor the nature of any feedback they supply following a date with you.

3.3 You accept that Lyons Elite does not guarantee any minimum number of introductions. We will endeavour to estimate a number based upon the information you provide at the initial meeting. This number is intended as a guide only and under no circumstances will it constitute a binding promise.

3.4 You promise and undertake not to do any of the following, and understand that should you break this undertaking, we may take action including but not limited to termination of your membership at our discretion and without offering any refund:
(i) harass or cause a nuisance, inconvenience or anxiety to any other member or any employee of Lyons Elite, or contact them following a request not to do so;
(ii) violate the privacy or other rights of any employee or other member of Lyons Elite, including but not limited to by forwarding, distributing or displaying emails, personal data or photographs of another member to any third party;
(iii) act in an abusive, threatening, harassing, obscene, libellous, offensive, sexist, racist or discriminatory manner towards any employee or other member of Lyons Elite;
(iv) do anything which restricts or inhibits anyone else’s use and enjoyment of the services;
(v) impersonate another person;
(vi) supply us with any photograph or other material the rights to which are owned by any third party unless you have their written permission for such photograph or other material to be used for this purpose;
(vi) promote or appear to be promoting your own products or services to any other member of Lyons Elite; or
(vii) do anything that deliberately or recklessly prejudices the reputation of Lyons Elite.
Should you become aware of any other member breaking these rules, please contact Lyons Elite.

3.5 You accept that Lyons Elite cannot be responsible for your interaction with other members or for the conduct or actions of any member. Lyons Elite does not carry out police or background checks of its members and makes no representations about the marital status or mental state of any member. You should always take sensible precautions before and during such interactions, particularly if arranging to meet another member (these should include meeting in a public place, telling a friend where you are going, and not giving out personal information until you are comfortable doing so). Lyons Elite cannot arbitrate in disputes between members.

3.6 Payment: Your membership is conditional upon the payment of your selected package. Fees vary depending on the level of membership you choose, and you will be given this information before joining. Fees, services and renewal options may be amended from time to time by Lyons Elite but you will be notified in advance of such changes. You may cancel your membership and subscription at any time but all fees paid up until your cancellation are non-refundable, except at the sole discretion of Lyons Elite.

3.7 Membership may be suspended for up to 3 months at a time by giving one month’s notice to Lyons Elite. You may reactivate your membership at any time within such 3 month period by informing Lyons Elite. Should you wish to reactivate your membership following the expiry of your membership period, you will be required to pay the full joining fee for your level of membership.

3.8 You agree to indemnify Lyons Elite, our employees and directors, for any and all loss, damage, claims, expenses, actions or demands, including but not limited to legal fees, arising out of your use of our services and/or any breach by you of these terms and conditions.
