While we do not own the content shared on Swingtowns by you (“Content”) or our other users, such user-generated content is included within the definition of Swingtowns and is excluded from the definition of Materials.
These Terms constitute a legal contract that establishes the relationship between you, the user, (“you, your, yours, etc.”) and us as it relates to your access to and use of Swingtowns, the world’s largest non-monogamy community.

If you fail to review these Terms as required to determine if any changes have been made, you assume all responsibility for such omission, and you agree that such failure amounts to your affirmative waiver of your right to review the updated terms. We are not responsible for your neglect of your legal rights.

Except for accounts for which you are an Authorized User, you will not use, attempt to access, or ask for the login credentials for any third party’s account at any time. You will not allow any third party to access or use your account at any time, nor provide any third party with your login credentials. We will not be liable for any loss that you may incur as a result of any third party that uses your password or otherwise accesses your account, either with or without your knowledge.

The solicitation, promotion, and facilitation of prostitution and sex trafficking are strictly prohibited.

You understand that all depictions on Swingtowns are of persons over the age of eighteen (18) on the date of production. We take great measures to ensure that no minors appear in any of user-generated content. If you seek any form of child sexual abuse material (whether real or virtual), you must exit Swingtowns immediately. We do not provide or promote underage content, and we do not tolerate those who seek underage content. In order to further our zero-tolerance policy, you agree to report any images, real or simulated, that appear to depict minors on Swingtown.

We strive to resolve all reports within seven (7) business days and provide clear guidelines to prevent issues from recurring. If a violation has occurred, we will determine the appropriate remedy and take the necessary action. Any content deemed to be illegal is removed immediately. We will not take action against other users for activity that happens on another platform or offline. We may suggest that you block the other user to prevent further interactions between you and the reported user. In instances where disputes over consent cannot be resolved internally, such disputes are submitted to a neutral arbitration association at our expense. Once an action is taken or if more information is needed from you, we will contact you by email or other electronic message.
We will fully cooperate with law enforcement authorities or orders from courts of competent jurisdiction, requesting or directing us to disclose the identity or location of any user in breach of these Terms, in accordance with our privacy policies, law enforcement policies, and applicable law or regulation.

If you do not do so within thirty (30) days after such billing error first appears on any account statement, the fee in question will be deemed acceptable by you for all purposes, including resolution of inquiries made by or on behalf of your banking institution. You release us from all liabilities and claims of loss resulting from any error or discrepancy that is not reported within thirty (30) days of the bill being rendered to you. These terms shall supplement and be in addition to any terms required by third party billing entities we engage to provide billing services.

The sum of this paragraph is that all disputes must be, without exception, resolved in Orange County, Florida. All Parties to these Terms agree that all legal actions or proceedings arising in connection with these Terms or any services or business interactions between the Parties that may be subject to these Terms shall be brought exclusively in Orange County, Florida. The Parties agree to exclusive jurisdiction and venue in, and only in, Orange County, Florida. The Parties additionally agree that this choice of venue and forum is mandatory and not permissive in nature, thereby precluding any possibility of litigation between the Parties with respect to, or arising out of, these Terms in a jurisdiction other than that specified in this paragraph. All Parties hereby waive any right to assert the doctrine of forum non-conveniens or similar doctrines challenging venue or jurisdiction, or to object to venue with respect to any proceeding brought in accordance with this paragraph or with respect to any dispute under these Terms whatsoever.

You hereby waive any right or ability to initiate any class action or collective proceeding along with any right to trial by jury.
You acknowledge that remedies at law may be inadequate to provide us with full compensation in the event you breach these Terms, and that we shall therefore be entitled to seek injunctive relief in the event of any such breach, in addition to seeking all other remedies available at law or in equity.
If we are required to enlist the assistance of an attorney, investigator, collections agent, or other person to collect any damages or any other amount of money from you, or if we are required to seek the assistance of an attorney to pursue injunctive relief against you, then you additionally agree that you will reimburse us for all fees incurred in order to collect these damages or in order to seek injunctive relief from you. You understand that even a nominal amount of damages may require the expenditure of extensive legal fees, travel expenses, costs, and other amounts that may dwarf the damages themselves. You agree that you will pay these fees and costs.
We provide access to and use of Swingtowns “as is” and “with all faults.” We make no warranty that Swingtowns will meet your needs or requirements.

We have no way of determining the validity of any communication that you may receive from other users, and we cannot discern the validity of the person or intentions behind such communication. It is a violation of our policy to solicit money from or to send money to any other user other than through authorized means. You expressly understand and agree that if any other user that you are in communication with on Swingtowns requests money from you for travel, medical assistance, subsistence or for any other reason, it is likely a scam or a fraudulent scheme, and you are at a very high risk of being defrauded.

Your Content may be illegally recorded by users or third parties, and your Content may be posted online or otherwise distributed without your permission. Such actions may cause humiliation, mental / emotional distress, identity theft, and other significant damages. You therefore acknowledge and agree we shall not be liable for any recording or release of private information, personal data, or your Content, and you hereby release us from all liability and claims associated therewith.
Swingtowns may contain links to websites or resources owned and operated by our users or third parties.

We shall promptly notify you by electronic mail of any such claim or suit, and we may cooperate fully (at your expense) in the defense of such claim or suit. We reserve the right to participate in the defense of such claim or suit at our own expense, and choose our own legal counsel; however, we are not obligated to do so.
You acknowledge that we will not be liable to you for user-generated content or the offensive or illegal conduct of any person. You understand that the risk of harm or damage from this rests entirely with you, and you expressly release us from any liability arising out of user-generated content or the conduct of any person.
