ELIGIBILITY, TERMS OF SERVICE, CONTENTS AND USER SUBMISSIONS

 1.1 Eligibility.  You must be eighteen or over to register as a Member of or use this Site. Membership in the Site is void where prohibited. By using and/or viewing this site, you represent and warrant that you have the right, authority, and capacity to enter into this Agreement and will abide by all of the terms and conditions of this Agreement, that you are at least 18-years old (21-years old in AL, MS, NE, WY, and any other location where 18 is not the age of majority) and  are interested in and wish to have access to visual images, verbal and written descriptions and audio sounds of a sexually oriented nature. The materials, which are available within this Site may include graphic visual depictions and descriptions of nudity and sexual activity and should not be accessed by anyone who is younger than 18-years old (21-years old in AL, MS, NE, WY, and any other location where 18 is not the age of majority) or who is offended by such materials or who does not wish to be exposed to such materials.

By using and/or viewing this Site you represent and warrant the following:
A) That you are an adult, at least 18-years of age (21-years old in AL, MS, NE, WY, and any other location where 18 is not the age of majority).

B) That you will not permit any person(s) under 18-years of age (21-years old in AL, MS, NE, WY, and any other location where 18 is not the age of majority) to have access to any of the materials contained within this Site.

C) That you understand that when you gain access to this site, you will be exposed to visual images, verbal descriptions and audio sounds of a sexually oriented nature, which may include graphic visual depictions and descriptions of nudity and sexual activity.  You are voluntarily choosing to do so because you want to view, read and/or hear the various materials which are available for your own personal enjoyment, information and/or education. Your choice is a manifestation of your interest in sexual matters which, you believe, is both healthy and normal and which, in your experience, is generally shared by average adults in your community.  You further represent and warrant that you are familiar with the standards in your community regarding the acceptance of such sexually oriented materials, and the materials you expect to encounter are within those standards.  In your judgment, the average adult in your community accepts the consumption of such materials by willing adults in circumstances such as this which offer reasonable insulation from the materials for minors and unwilling adults, and will not find such materials to appeal to a prurient interest or to be patently offensive.

D) That you further represent and warrant that you have not notified any governmental agency, including the U.S. postal service, that you do not wish to receive sexually oriented material.

G) You represent that, if you are a member of the press (including television & radio), you are registering as a Member, using the Site, and are present at any Lifestylelounge.com event only in your private, individual capacity.  You warrant that, if the foregoing statement proves to be false, you are here at the direction of your employers and are acting within the scope of your employment; that you are violating the rights of the Members to privacy under common law and the U.S. Constitution, and that an appropriate amount of liquidated damages for any published report made which portrays or describes the activities of any Member is ten dollars ($10) times the number of readers or viewers of any medium which publishes the report, which reflects a reasonable estimate of probable compensatory damages for loss of privacy, including humiliation, emotional distress, necessity to pay legal fees, loss of employment or advancement, and other injuries, the amount of which is uncertain.  This amount shall be awarded to each Member named in the report or described in such a way as to permit identification of the Member by application of the description to publicly available information.

TERMINATION

 6.1 Summit may, in its sole discretion, terminate or suspend Member’s access to all or any part of the Site for any reason, including, but not limited to, breach of this Agreement. Termination or suspension does not entitle the Member to a refund of subscription monies paid. Termination or suspension will result in the forfeiture of all subscription monies paid.

GUIDELINES FOR USE

 7.1 The primary purpose of this Site is to enable Members with similar interests to chat with each other, exchange stories or pictures, and even to meet each other in person. In this regard, this website is much like a national “Personals” website, and the same care that one would exercise when giving information to strangers, or setting up meetings with strangers, must be used here. Summit will never give information about one Member to another Member. Further, you are cautioned that giving any information to another Member on this website carries with it significant risks.  If you give any information to anyone, you are taking a significant risk, which are greatly increased if you plan to meet other Members face-to-face. These risks include, but are not limited to, the risk of contracting a sexually transmitted disease should the parties engaging in sexual activities.  Summit waives all liability for any damages you may suffer as a result of meeting a Member from the Site.  Please use caution and common-sense when using this service, meeting people or engaging in sexual activities.

 7.2 Summit is the exclusive home of the "100% Real Seal."  The Real Seal indicates that the Member in question is who they say they are — a man, a woman, or a couple.  Members are awarded a 100% Real Seal only upon either of the following:  (1) submitting to management evidence sufficient to prove to management that they are who they portray themselves in their profile.  Management has the sole discretion to determine what constitutes sufficient evidence; or (2) meeting in person a Member who has already been awarded the 100% Real Seal and having that Member certify that they are who they portray themselves in their profile.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Real Seal isn’t 100% guaranteed. Therefore, use caution even when a Member has been awarded a Real Seal. Furthermore, the Real Seal only affirms that the Member is a member of the demographic group they claim to belong to (male, female, or couple). The Real Seal does not indicate that this Member is safe to contact, meet, or give information to. Use the same caution when dealing with a Real Seal Member that you would use when dealing with any other Member.

 7.3  You agree that you will award a Member the “100% Real Seal” only if you meet that Member in person.  If you violate this Section 7.3, Summit may, in its sole discretion, terminate your membership and you will not be entitled to any refund of any subscription monies paid.

PRIVACY POLICY

 8.1 Summit takes every precaution to protect your privacy. Only authorized employees have access to your username, password and credit card information, and Summit has strict rules for its employees who have access either to the databases that store user information or to the servers that host our services.
