Last updated: May 5th, 2018.

This website (the “Website”) is operated by CuddleComfort.com (“Cuddle Comfort”). The Terms of Use set forth below are binding on all users of this Website. By directing your browser to this Website or otherwise accessing the pages of this Website, you accept these Terms of Use. Cuddle Comfort may change the Terms of Use at any time at its sole discretion. Cuddle Comfort reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to deny further or continuing access to the Website to any visitor, including, without limitation, any user that Cuddle Comfort determines has violated any aspect of these Terms of Use. Cuddle Comfort reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to seek and obtain any other remedies available to it pursuant to any applicable laws and regulations or at equity as a result of your breach of these Terms of Use or any other act or omission by you that gives rise to a claim by Cuddle Comfort.

Adult users only

This Website is not intended for people under 18 years of age. If you are under 18, you are not authorized to use this Website and will not be afforded access to any features of this Website that allow for you to provide information to us or to share information with other users of this Website.

Personal safety

CUDDLE COMFORT STRONGLY ADVISES YOU TO USE EXTREME CAUTION BEFORE SHARING PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION WITH OTHER USERS OF THIS WEBSITE.

Your safety and security are very important to us. The nature of this Website promotes the sharing of personal information by users with other users. Cuddle Comfort cannot and does not assure that it is safe for you to have direct contact with other users of this Website. Current technological developments make it possible for users of the Internet to obtain personal information about, and locate, other users, with very little other information. For example, it is possible to use certain widely available commercial Internet search engines to locate a person’s home solely using that person’s correct name. If you believe that any user of this Website is harassing you or is otherwise using personal information about you for unlawful purposes, we encourage you to first inform local law enforcement authorities and then to contact us via The Feedback Form so that we may take appropriate action to block further use of the Website by any user who is using this Website and information obtained from it for improper purposes.

IF YOU ARE UNDER 18 YEARS OF AGE BUT HAVE IMPROPERLY ACCESSED THIS WEBSITE BY PROVIDING FALSE INFORMATION TO US, NOT ONLY ARE YOU AN UNAUTHORIZED USER USING THIS WEBSITE IN VIOLATION OF THESE TERMS OF USE, BUT YOU MAY ALSO BE PUTTING YOURSELF AND OTHERS IN DANGER.

By accessing this Website, you agree to use any personal information provided to you by other users of this Website in a lawful and responsible manner. You further agree that you will not use personal information about other users of this Website for any reason without the express prior consent of the user that has provided such information to you.

Personal boundaries

You agree to never use this Website for the intent of meeting another member for sex. You also agree to never attempt to progress a meeting, organised via this website, to a sexual nature.

When communicating with another member, you agree to never indicate a desire to cuddle while doing any of the following: (1) being nude, (2) wearing only underwear, (3) kissing, (4) groping, (5) satisfying a fetish or kink, and (6) anything of a non-platonic nature.

Privacy

You should appreciate that all information submitted on the Website might potentially be publicly accessible. Important and private information should be protected by you. We are not responsible for protecting, nor are we liable for failing to protect, the privacy of electronic mail or other information transferred through the Internet or any other network that you may utilize. See Cuddle Comfort’s privacy policy for more information regarding privacy. The privacy policy is incorporated into and a part of these Terms of Use.

Security

Cuddle Comfort uses industry standard efforts, such as firewalls, to safeguard the confidentiality of your personally identifiable information. However, perfect security does not exist on the internet; Cuddle Comfort cannot and does not guarantee that any personally identifiable information provided to us will not become public under any circumstances.

Professional cuddling

We do not endorse nor check the credibility or authenticity of any members, including those who are labeled as 'Professional'. You should therefore always exercise due diligence independent of this website to satisfy your own peace of mind in regards to safety.

By choosing to have a session with a professional cuddler on this website, you are agreeing to the Client Service Agreement found here. If instead you are here as a professional cuddler, by using this website you are agreeing to the Cuddler Contract found here.

If you wish to be a Professional Cuddler on our website, you must apply here. If you already have an existing account that has not been upgraded to professional tier, you must inform us of your username by using the contact us form. We can then begin the upgrade process for your account. Failing to do this breaches our terms and could lead to permanent account termination. For more information about applying to be a professional cuddler, read this page.

Paid-for accounts and paid features

Cuddle Comfort is free, but if you would like to upgrade to a Professional Cuddler account or any other paid features (the "Service"), the following terms apply.

Billing and Payment. Cuddle Comfort bills you through an online account for use of the Service. You agree to pay Cuddle Comfort all charges you subscribe for on the Website using this online account. Cuddle Comfort may correct any billing errors or mistakes that it makes even if it has already requested or received payment. This paragraph includes any agreements you make on the Website when you purchase the Service. You agree to maintain current, complete and accurate information for your billing account at any time you have a subscription. In addition, you authorize us to obtain updated or replacement expiration dates and card numbers for you credit or debit card as provided by your credit or debit card issuer.

Automatic renewal

(1) Your subscription for the Service will continue indefinitely until cancelled by you. After your initial subscription period, and again after any subsequent subscription period, your subscription will automatically continue for an additional equivalent period, at the price you agreed to when subscribing. You agree that your account will be subject to this automatic renewal feature. If you want to terminate your subscription, please log in and go to the Settings page to downgrade or delete your account. If you cancel your subscription, your subscription will not be renewed thereafter and you won’t be eligible for a prorated refund of any portion of the subscription fee paid for the then-current subscription period.

(2) By subscribing, you authorize Cuddle Comfort to charge your credit card, debit card or other payment method at such time and again at the beginning of any subsequent subscription period, including any sales or similar taxes imposed on your subscription payments. Upon the renewal of your subscription, if Cuddle Comfort does not receive payment, you agree that Cuddle Comfort may either terminate or suspend your subscription and continue to attempt to charge your payment method provider until payment is received (upon receipt of payment, your account will be activated and for purposes of automatic renewal, your new subscription commitment period will begin as of the day payment was received). If you do not terminate your subscription and/or if you continue to use the Service, you agree that Cuddle Comfort is authorized to charge the payment method in your online account. Cuddle Comfort may also seek payment directly from you. Your charges may be payable in advance, in arrears, per usage, or as otherwise described when you initially subscribed to the Service.

No refunds

REFUNDS WILL NOT BE PROVIDED FOR ANY SUBSCRIPTION. WE DO NOT PROVIDE CREDIT, REFUNDS, OR PRORATED BILLING FOR SUBSCRIPTIONS THAT ARE CANCELLED MID-MONTH. We reserve the right to offer refunds, discounts or other consideration in select circumstances at our sole discretion. Please note that each circumstance is unique and election to make such an offer in one instance does not create the obligation to do so in another.

Access and proprietary rights

So long as you comply with these Terms of Use, you are authorized to access, use and make a limited number of copies of information and materials available on this Website only for purposes of your personal use in order to learn more about Cuddle Comfort or its products and services, or to otherwise communicate with Cuddle Comfort or utilize its services.

Cuddle Comfort, CuddleComfort.com, and other identifying marks of Cuddle Comfort are proprietary to Cuddle Comfort. You may not use these marks for any purpose without the express prior written consent of Cuddle Comfort. Except as expressly set forth above, these Terms of Use do not grant to you any express, implied or other license or right under any patent, trademark or copyright of Cuddle Comfort or any third party.

In certain instances, Cuddle Comfort may agree to provide you with access to secure, password protected pages of the Website. Such access is restricted to authorized users only; any attempt by you to access these areas without authorization may subject you to criminal or civil liability.

Data Retention of accounts that breach our terms

We reserve the right to indefinitely retain the profile and associated data of any account that breaches our terms & conditions, forum rules or professional cuddling agreements. We may use this data to block the offending user from accessing the website again. We may also use the data to help us identify any attempts to bypass those preventative measures.

Notice is hereby given that all messages entered into this Website can and may be read by the operators of the Website, whether or not they are the intended recipient(s).

Forum use

This section governs use of the discussion forum, and applies to all users either directly or indirectly, registered or otherwise.

You agree, through your use of our forum, that you will not post any material which is false, defamatory, inaccurate, abusive, vulgar, hateful, harassing, obscene, profane, sexually oriented, threatening, invasive of a person's privacy, adult material, or otherwise in violation of any International or United States Federal law. You also agree not to post any copyrighted material unless you own the copyright or you have written consent from the owner of the copyrighted material. Spam, flooding, advertisements, chain letters, pyramid schemes, and solicitations are also forbidden on this forum.

Note that it is impossible for the staff or the owners of this forum to confirm the validity of posts. Please remember that we do not actively monitor the posted messages, and as such, are not responsible for the content contained within. We do not warrant the accuracy, completeness, or usefulness of any information presented. The posted messages express the views of the author, and not necessarily the views of this forum, its staff, its subsidiaries, or this forum's owner. Anyone who feels that a posted message is objectionable is encouraged to notify an administrator or moderator of this forum immediately. The staff and the owner of this forum reserve the right to remove objectionable content, within a reasonable time frame, if they determine that removal is necessary. This is a manual process, however, please realize that they may not be able to remove or edit particular messages immediately. This policy applies to member profile information as well.

You remain solely responsible for the content of your posted messages. Furthermore, you agree to indemnify and hold harmless the owners of this forum, any related websites to this forum, its staff, and its subsidiaries. The owners of this forum also reserve the right to reveal your identity (or any other related information collected on this service) in the event of a formal complaint or legal action arising from any situation caused by your use of this forum.

By submitting user content to Cuddle Comfort, you grant us a royalty-free, perpetual, irrevocable, non-exclusive, unrestricted, worldwide license to reproduce, prepare derivative works, distribute copies, perform, or publicly display your user content in any medium and for any purpose, including commercial purposes, and to authorize others to do so.

Image uploading

When you choose to add an image to a post in any part of our forum, you agree and understand that in doing so it becomes public domain and cannot be deleted thereafter.

Forum images that are added to your posts are uploaded using a third-party service provided by Imgur and are hosted on their servers, not ours. We do not have any control over the images you upload and post on our forum.

All images uploaded will be made available via their direct URLs at any time, which means they can never be made secret. Even if you later remove the image from your post’s content or if you delete your post entirely, the image itself still remains online and accessible via its direct URL.

Reports and confidentiality

You agree that by submitting a report about another member, you do so with the understanding that it is not anonymous and that under certain circumstances your username could be disclosed to the accused party. Learn more about this in our privacy policy.
