Chat & Date is the place to date honestly. It’s a space where everyone can be real about who they are and what they’re looking for.
We want everyone to enjoy their journey on Chat & Date, and to use our platform safely and responsibly. Millions of people around the world rely on us to maintain a secure and trustworthy space to make connections. We have created these community guidelines to give you an idea of what is acceptable and what is not acceptable behaviour on our platform.
Our policies are developed with the help of our community and the commitment of our staff to maintain a safe space to make connections.
We are committed to reviewing our policies on a continual basis so that they accurately reflect and represent the diversity of our members, and stay up to date with the many changes in the world.
Chat & Date is an adult only platform. This means that you must be 18 or older to join the platform. If we find any evidence that you might be underage, we will block you from the service. If we have done so mistakenly, we reserve the right to ask for identification to verify your age.
We understand that some members would like to include children in their pictures. We ask that children do not appear alone in the images and be completely clothed. This is safer for everyone involved.
When you join Chat & Date, we expect you to represent yourself honestly. That means you must: use the name you go by in everyday life, only use real photos of yourself, not misrepresent yourself or impersonate anyone else, or alter any information about yourself.
We’re a very diverse community. This means you should always respect other people’s beliefs, interests and identity. Chat & Date takes a strong stance against hate speech and discrimination.
We consider content to be hate speech (and take more severe actions against a profile) if it promotes or condones racism, bigotry, violence, hate, dehumanisation, or harm against individuals or groups based on:
On Chat & Date, while we want you to express yourself with a potential match, you should not do so in a way that might make them feel uncomfortable or targeted.
Do not scam Chat & Date members, or deceive members in any way for financial benefit.
We consider spam as the practice of sending unwanted messages frequently for the purpose of commercial advertising, non-commercial reasons or any prohibited purpose.
Chat & Date is not a marketplace. Using Chat & Date for commercial purposes is not allowed. This includes advertising or promoting your event, business, music, or performance. Solicitation is also strictly prohibited, that is the act of asking for, or trying to obtain, something from someone or asking a person to commit an illegal act.
In order to keep Chat & Date as enjoyable as possible, we do not allow any members to have multiple accounts.
Do not set up an account as a group, with partners or friends. Chat & Date is a place for members to be their authentic, individual selves.
We use a combination of automated systems and a team of moderators to monitor and review accounts and messages for content that indicates breaches of these guidelines and our Terms and Conditions. If you don’t respect these guidelines or our Honesty Pledge, a moderator may restrict your access to Chat & Date or permanently remove your Chat & Date account (whether your actions happen online or offline).
