Terms of Use

Cove is a social connection platform. We connect Users (individually, a “User or Member” collectively, “Users or Members”) with each other, as well as provide the opportunity for Users to connect with Dating Experts (individually, an “Expert,” collectively, “Experts”). Users can either be a “Female” (Users rewarded for their engagement) or “Male” (Users paying a membership fee) – only referenced where the differentiation is applicable.

Below are our Terms of Use that govern your use of Cove. We hope you enjoy reading them.

Last Revised: September 1, 2018

1. Acceptance of Terms

These Terms of Use (“Terms”) constitute a legally binding contract between Cove and our affiliates (collectively, “Cove,” “we,” “us”), and you, with respect to your use of all properties (web, mobile, or otherwise) owned or operated by Cove (collectively, the “Properties”), and all products and services available from Cove or other third parties in connection with the Properties (individually and collectively with the Properties, the “Services”). By downloading, accessing, or using the mobile applications, websites, or other products or Services, you acknowledge that you have read, understood, and agree to be bound by, these Terms and our Privacy Policy. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THE TERMS, EITHER DO NOT DOWNLOAD THE MOBILE APPLICATION OR DO NOT USE THE SERVICE.

NOTE – These Terms include a class action waiver, a disclaimer of warranties, a disclaimer of liability, as well as a release and indemnification by you.

Any changes to these Terms will be effective immediately upon posting. Please review the Terms each time you use the Services as your continued use of the Services after such changes will constitute acceptance of, and agreement to, such changes. You further waive any right you may have to receive specific notice of such changes.

2. Privacy Policy

Use of this site is governed by our Privacy Policy (subject to revision from time to time), which describes how we collect and use information from our Users and Experts. A link to our Privacy Policy can be found on the settings screen of the Cove app. By using or accessing the Services, you acknowledge that you agree and are subject to these Terms, as well as to our Privacy Policy.

3. Consent

You affirm that you are at least eighteen (18) years of age and are fully able and competent to enter into, and comply with, these Terms. If you are accessing and using the Services on behalf of a company or other legal entity, you represent that you have the authority to bind that entity to these Terms. In that situation, “you” and “your” will refer to both you and that entity.

4. Risk Disclosure

As with life, in general, there is risk associated with most decisions and activities. So are the endeavors you are about to take through our Services. We have taken and will take every practical initiative to minimize such risks taking place, however, we wish to highlight some scenarios of higher likelihood, which you must be aware of and by using the Services you are agreeing to assume such risk.

a) Profiles: Information (such as name, age, profile, country, email, location, images, and videos) of Users and Experts are provided on an “as is” basis as it was made available to Cove. We verify to the best of our ability the identity of our Users through Instagram, LinkedIn, internet search, professional reputation, direct contact, and other means as required.

b) Quality of connection: Cove will not be held responsible for poor audio or video quality. Our Users and Experts are reminded to only accept one-on-one correspondence when they are able to access a reliable mobile operator or WIFI internet signal. However, the Internet and data connections being as they are will always be subject to unexpected loss of data packets and sudden drops in service quality. By initiating a one-on-one correspondence, you are assuming the risk of possibly experiencing poor or less than ideal call quality.

c) Information provided during communications: Cove is a social platform that facilitates one-on-one connections that otherwise would possibly never happen. Users and Experts must provide honest, true, and valid information during communication. However, in reality, we cannot verify this. Therefore, we suggest that you evaluate the risks and apply common sense when using the Services.

d) Offline: Cove will not be held responsible for any personal encounters or communications between Users or Experts outside of the Services whether online or offline.

e) Taxes: If applicable, you are solely responsible for all charges, fees, duties, taxes, and assessments arising out of any use of your account by you or anyone else using your account. If you have reason to believe that your account is no longer secure (for example, in the event of a loss, theft, or unauthorized disclosure or use of your password or information about your financial accounts), notify Cove of the problem to avoid possible liability for any unauthorized charges to your account. If your payment information has changed or expired it is your responsibility to make the appropriate changes with Apple or Google or your service may be interrupted.

f) Canadian Users and Experts: Canadian Users (if applicable) and Experts will be required to send earnings information to the CRA (Canada Revenue Agency), therefore further identity verification may include capturing SIN (Social Insurance Number), full address, and acknowledgment to share information with CRA.

g) Disclosure of your personal information: Under no circumstance will Cove sell or transfer for monetary gains your information to any unrelated third-party without your permission. We may disclose your information to affiliates or unaffiliated third parties if we believe in good faith that such disclosure is necessary such as:

  • To comply with the law or in response to a subpoena, court order, government administrative measure, or other due process;
  • To protect the interests, rights, safety, or property of Cove or others;
  • To enforce any Terms of Use of the Cove site;
  • To provide you with the services or products requested by you, and to perform other activities related to such services and products, including billing and collection

h) Content: Any use or reliance on any Content posted via the Services or obtained by you through the Services is at your own risk. We do not endorse, support, represent or guarantee the completeness, truthfulness, accuracy, or reliability of any Content or communications posted via the Services or endorse any opinions expressed via the Services. You understand that by using the Services, you may be exposed to Content that might be offensive, harmful, inaccurate or otherwise inappropriate, or in some cases, postings that have been mislabeled or are otherwise deceptive. All Content is the sole responsibility of the person who originated such Content. We may not monitor or control the Content posted via the Services and, we cannot take responsibility for such Content.

i) Conduct: Cove is not responsible for the conduct, whether online or offline, of any user of the website or member of the service. You assume all risk when using the service, including but not limited to all of the risks associated with any online or offline interactions with other Users, including dating or sending money to another member.

Cove will review the uploaded Content to ensure it matches our criteria.

Waitlist: All applications automatically end up on a wait list. After an internal screening process, we decide whether the applicant will be approved for Cove. Cove, in its sole discretion, can deny any application. We might not always approve an application immediately, this can take time. The wait list is regularly screened for approval. If you want to be removed from our wait list, please send us an email at support@cove.date. Furthermore, we do not explain why an application remains on the wait list or why an applicant is not approved. The decision is final and no correspondence will be entered into.

We may require you to submit additional documentation or a short video. In some cases, it may also be necessary to contact you for a live video call. If you do not agree to further verification of identity, you will not be approved or will be removed from the platform. Cove reserves the right to reject or deny any User or Expert application.

Registration: To access certain features of the Site, Services, or Application, you must register to create an account (Cove Account).

Users who have previously on-boarded using a referral code may onboard again, but will not receive credit if they enter a referral code. If an onboarding user has multiple referral codes only the one entered during onboarding will be honored. If a referral code is not entered by the person being referred during onboarding, then the referral credit will not be applied to their account. Cove is not responsible for users who do not have the latest version of the app installed. The most updated version will reflect the current referral credit terms. Cove, in its sole discretion, can update or change the referral program at any moment.

9. Male User Financial Terms

Users are solely responsible for honoring transactions or purchases made by their account. Features and services are paid for by purchasing a Cove Membership (“Membership”) or Cove Tickets (“Tickets”). Memberships, Tickets, Referral Rewards, and unused balances are non-transferable, may not be redeemed for cash, and may not be returned or forfeited for a cash refund, except as may be required by applicable law.

Membership: Your Cove membership will start with a free trial. The free trial period of your membership lasts for one month, or as otherwise specified and is intended to allow new Users to try the service. Free trial eligibility is determined by Cove at its sole discretion and we may limit eligibility or duration to prevent free trial abuse. We reserve the right to revoke the free trial and put your account on hold in the event that we determine that you are not eligible. We will charge your Payment Method for your monthly membership fee at the end of the free trial period unless you cancel your membership prior to the end of the free trial period. Auto-renewal may be turned off at any time by going to your settings in the iTunes/Google Play Store after purchase. 

We may offer a number of membership plans, including special promotional plans or memberships offered by third parties in conjunction with the provision of their own products and services. We are not responsible for the products and services provided by such third parties. Some membership plans may have differing conditions and limitations, which will be disclosed upon purchase or in other communications made available to you.  

The membership fee for the Cove service will be charged on a monthly basis to your payment method on the calendar day corresponding to the commencement of the paying portion of your membership. In some cases your payment date may change, for example if your payment method has not successfully settled or if your paid membership began on a day not contained in a given month. 

You can cancel your Cove membership at any time, and you will continue to have access to the service through the end of your monthly billing period.

All Sales Final: There will be no refunds for any purchases completed. Please use Cove responsibly and within your own means while understanding the underlying inherent risks associated with any participation on this platform.

Financial Transactions: You may be able to participate in certain features or services of the Site or the Services without purchasing a Membership or Tickets.

If you are eligible to make a purchase, you authorize Cove to initiate debits or charges against your financial account, ewallet, Google Play account, App Store account, or credit or debit card for the amount due.  

You are solely responsible for all charges, fees, duties, taxes, and assessments arising out of any use of your account by you or anyone else using your account. If you have reason to believe that your account is no longer secure (for example, in the event of a loss, theft, or unauthorized disclosure or use of your password or information about your financial accounts), contact support@cove.date to notify us of the problem and to avoid possible liability for any unauthorized charges to your account.

b) Ownership and Use of Session Content: Any Content generated through the Cove platform as a result of an interaction is owned by the Users. Users are prohibited from recording, reproducing, transmitting, distributing, or otherwise copying Content from sessions unless mutual written or verbal consent is given prior to or at the beginning of the session. Users must keep proof of consent and must be able to produce that proof upon request by Cove. Female Users may choose to only receive VIP Invites. Male Users can bypass invite preferences by sending a VIP Invite.

c) License: However, by submitting, posting, displaying, performing, transmitting, or otherwise distributing Content to the Application, Site, or Services, you are granting Cove and its Users a license to use any such Content. In particular, you are granting Cove (and its successors) a worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free, transferable, and fully sublicensable license to use and otherwise exploit such Content. This includes without limitation to host, store, screen, copy, distribute, transmit, broadcast, display, perform publicly, publish, communicate, reproduce, prepare derivative works of, modify, convert for streaming, adapt, edit, translate and reformat such Content, in any form, format, or media, and through any media channels now known or later developed. The rights in this license are limited to such rights (a) in connection with the operating, exploiting, promoting, bettering, redistributing, and developing parts or all of the Site and the Services (or derivative works thereof), or (b) in connection with Cove’s business, or the business of its subsidiaries or successors. The rights you grant also include the rights of Cove to fully sublicense any such rights, without limitation, to consultants, contractors, and other third parties in connection with such purposes. You also are granting each Partner of the Site or the Service a non-exclusive license to access your Content through the Site and the Services, and to use, reproduce, distribute, publish, display, and perform such Content as permitted through the functionality of the Site and the Services and under these Terms of Use.

d) Terms: This license continues perpetually even if you cease all use of the Application, Site, and the Services. The Application, Site and the Services may or may not provide ways for you to access and remove User Content that is posted using your account. Nevertheless, if you can and do remove User Content from the Application, Site, and the Services, then within a commercially reasonable time thereafter this license shall terminate with respect to such User Content removed. If you are under the age of eighteen (18), you have the right to remove User Content that you posted from your account. However, you understand that your removal does not ensure complete or comprehensive removal of the Content or information, and any repost by a third-party may remain unremoved. Cove shall have the right to keep archives and is not responsible for any archives kept and reposted by you or anyone else.

e) User/Expert Representations: By posting Content, you warrant and represent that you own or otherwise have all necessary rights to all such User Content and all required rights, licenses, consents, and permissions to post, submit, display, perform, publish, transmit, or otherwise distribute such User Content and to grant Cove the license granted under these Terms of Use.

f) Waiver of Moral Rights: To the extent permitted by applicable law, you hereby waive any and all rights that you may have under laws worldwide that concern “moral rights” or “droit rights,” or similar rights, or any rights of publicity or privacy in connection with Content that you post, or that is posted using your account.

g) Eligibility: (a) These Terms constitute the entire agreement between the parties concerning the subject matter hereof; (b) If any part of these Terms of Use shall be held or declared to be invalid or unenforceable for any reason by any court of competent jurisdiction, such provision shall be ineffective but shall not affect any other part of these Terms of Use; (c) You affirm that you are more than eighteen (18) years of age. If you are under eighteen (18) years of age, then please do not use the Service.

At any time, Cove may, in its own discretion, add or change restrictions to your ability to post or view Content (without limitation, by way of example, character, or storage size limits), or remove or delete User Content from its servers, without notice or liability. Further, if you submit feedback or suggestions about the Application, Site, or the Services, Cove may use your feedback or suggestions without any obligation to you.

18. Inappropriate Content

You agree not to submit, post, upload, display, perform, transmit, or otherwise distribute any Content that, as Cove may determine in its own discretion: (a) is libelous, defamatory, fraudulent, obscene, pornographic, indecent, hateful, abusive, threatening, vulgar, distasteful, inaccurate, misleading, inappropriate for public use, offensive, or otherwise in violation of any laws or rights of any person or entity, including without limitation rights of publicity, rights of privacy, intellectual property rights, or other rights; (b) advocates or encourages conduct that could constitute a criminal offence, give rise to civil liability, or otherwise violate any applicable local, provincial, state, national, or foreign law or regulation; (c) advertises or otherwise solicits funds or is a solicitation for goods or services; (d) delivers or causes to be delivered any unsolicited or unauthorized advertising, contest, sweepstakes or promotions, promotional materials, surveys, “junk mail,” “spam,” “chain letter,” “pyramid scheme,” investment opportunity, or other form of solicitation that Cove considers to be of such nature; (e) delivers or causes to be delivered viruses, trojan horses, worms, time bombs, cancelbots, corrupted files, or similar software; (f) uses any automated means, including, without limitation, agents, robots, scripts or spiders; (g) misrepresents your affiliation or connection with Cove, if any or none, or any other person or entity; (h) misrepresents who you are by providing photos of someone or something other than yourself; or (i) involves anyone under the age of eighteen (18). Cove reserves the right to terminate your receipt, transmission, or other distribution of any such material using the Site or the Services, and, if applicable, to delete any such material from its servers. Without limiting the above, you agree not to submit, post, upload, display, perform, transmit, or otherwise distribute any personally identifiable information of others (and do not post your own without risking misuse or criminal theft of your information). Cove intends to cooperate fully with any law enforcement officials or agencies in the investigation of any violation of these Terms or of any applicable laws.

If you become aware of any unlawful, offensive, or inappropriate Content on the Application, Site, or the Services (except for Content that infringes copyright, which is addressed below), please use the report feature within the application or contact support@cove.date with your name and address, a description of the material at issue, and the link to or location of such material.

In the event Content is flagged as inappropriate, or reported by another community member, the Content and the perpetrator will be subject to review by Cove and its moderators. Any Content deemed by Cove or its representatives, in their discretion, to have violated these Terms may be removed at any time, without prior notice. Cove, in its sole discretion, may terminate a User or Expert account for posting such Content. Cove has sole discretion, without notice, to block and delete accounts of those who appear to violate these Terms based on internal Cove quality assurance.

To rephrase and repeat so that this is very clear. Any violation of these Terms and/or inappropriate Content will be treated very seriously and will result in the User or Expert being removed immediately from the platform. Let’s keep it clean, classy, and have some fun.

21. No Control Over Third-Party Sites

Cove has no control over, and no liability for any third-party websites or materials. Cove works with a number of Partners and affiliates whose Internet sites and/or API’s may be linked to the Services. Neither Cove nor our Application, Site, or Services has control over the Content and performance of these Partner and affiliate sites; Cove makes no guarantees about the accuracy, currency, Content, quality, or transmission of the information provided by such sites, and assumes no responsibility for unintended, objectionable, inaccurate, misleading, infringing, or unlawful Content that may reside on those sites.

Likewise, Cove has no control over and is not responsible for, the business practices or privacy policies of any third-party sites, or for the collection, use or disclosure of any information those sites may collect, even if those sites are owned or operated by Partners or affiliates of Cove. Cove makes no representation, recommendation, endorsement, or warranty with regard to any third-party websites. Cove shall not be a party to or in any way responsible for monitoring any transaction between you and any third-party providers of products or services. As with any online purchase of a product or service, you should use your best judgment and exercise caution where appropriate.

22. Limitation of Liability

In no event shall the Cove parties be liable to you or any third-party for any direct, indirect, incidental, special, punitive, or consequential damages whatsoever arising out of, based on, or resulting from your use of the Services and your transactions with Cove, Users, Experts or other third parties, whether based on warranty, contract, tort, negligence or any other legal theory, and whether or not Cove is advised of the possibility of such damages. The foregoing limitation of liability shall apply to the fullest extent permitted by law in the applicable jurisdiction.

In no event will the collective liability of the Cove parties or Partners, arising out of or in connection with these Terms, the Services, and your transactions with Cove, Users, Experts, or other third parties exceed the lesser of (a) the amount you have paid to Cove for use of the applicable services in the preceding twelve-month period or (b) one-hundred US dollars ($100 USD).

Certain local laws do not allow limitations on implied warranties or the exclusion or limitation of certain damages. If these laws apply to you, some or all of the above disclaimers, exclusions, or limitations may not apply to you, and you may have additional rights.

Any claims relating to the use of the services must be brought within one (1) year from the date the cause of action arose. Claims brought after such period are void. Your only right or remedy with respect to any problem or dissatisfaction with use is to cancel your account and cease using the Application, Site, and Services.

You agree not to access other posted Content through any technology or means other than through the Service itself, or other explicitly authorized means Cove may designate. You are prohibited from collecting or harvesting any personal information from the Service. Furthermore, you are prohibited from using the Service for any illegal purpose, or in violation of any local, provincial, state, national, or international law, including, without limitation, laws governing intellectual property and other proprietary rights, and data protection and privacy.

26. Platform Providers

You acknowledge that Platform Providers (such as Apple Inc. and Google Inc.) are not responsible for addressing any claims relating to the Service or your possession and/or use of the Service, including but not limited to: (a) product liability claims; (b) any claim that the Service fails to conform to any applicable legal or regulatory requirement; and (c) claims arising under consumer protection or similar legislation. We, not the Platform Providers, will be solely responsible for the investigation, defense, settlement, and discharge of any such intellectual property infringement claim. Platform Providers are third-party beneficiaries of this Agreement, and Platform Providers will have the right (and will be deemed to have accepted the right) to enforce this Agreement against you as a third-party beneficiary thereof.

27. Governing Law

These Terms of Use shall be construed in accordance with and governed by the laws of the province of Ontario and the federal laws of Canada, without reference to the rules regarding conflicts of law in your province or state of residence.

28. Binding Arbitration and Class Action Waiver

ANY DISPUTE OR CLAIM ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING IN ANY WAY TO THESE TERMS OR YOUR ACCESS TO OR USE OF THE SERVICES, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE VALIDITY, APPLICABILITY, OR INTERPRETATION OF THESE TERMS (EACH, A “CLAIM”), SHALL BE RESOLVED BY BINDING ARBITRATION RATHER THAN IN COURT, EXCEPT THAT YOU MAY ASSERT CLAIMS IN SMALL CLAIMS COURT IF YOUR CLAIMS QUALIFY. THERE IS NO JUDGE OR JURY IN ARBITRATION, AND COURT REVIEW OF AN ARBITRATION AWARD IS LIMITED.

The arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (AAA) under its rules applicable to consumer disputes. The AAA’s Consumer Arbitration Rules are available at http://www.adr.org/sites/default/files/Consumer%20Rules.pdf. If for any reason, AAA is unable to administer the arbitration, it will be conducted by a similar arbitration tribunal, utilizing similar rules consistent with principles of fairness and equity to the consumer.  Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be made by us. The arbitration shall be conducted by a single independent and neutral arbitrator. For any hearing conducted in person as part of the arbitration, you agree that the hearing will be conducted in the most populous city in the county in which you live. The decision of the arbitrator shall be final and binding. Judgment on the arbitral award may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.

WE EACH AGREE THAT ANY DISPUTE OR CLAIM ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING IN ANY WAY TO THESE TERMS OR YOUR ACCESS TO OR USE OF THE SERVICES WILL BE RESOLVED ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT IN A CLASS, CONSOLIDATED, OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION OR ARBITRATION. IF FOR ANY REASON A CLAIM PROCEEDS IN COURT RATHER THAN IN ARBITRATION, WE EACH WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL.

29. Injunctive Relief and Other Remedies

You acknowledge and agree that any breach or threatened breach of these Terms of Use by you will cause Cove and its licensors irreparable damage for which recovery of money damage would be inadequate and that Cove and its licensors may obtain timely injunctive relief to protect their rights, without bond, other security, or proof of damages, in addition to any and all other remedies available at law or in equity.

30. Assignment

These Terms of Use and any rights and licenses granted hereunder, may not be transferred or assigned by you but may be assigned by Cove without restriction. These Terms of Use are binding upon and inure to the benefit of Cove’s successors and assigns.

31. Miscellaneous Terms

If, for whatever reason, a court of competent jurisdiction finds any Term or Condition in these Terms of Use to be unenforceable, all other Terms and Conditions shall remain unaffected and in full force and effect. No waiver of any breach of any provision of these Terms of Use shall constitute a waiver of any prior, concurrent, or subsequent breach of the same or any other provisions hereof, and no waiver shall be effective unless made in writing and signed by an authorized representative of the waiving party. If there is a conflict between these Terms and the additional terms, the additional terms shall control for that conflict. These Terms control the relationship between you and Cove (and Cove’s successors and assigns) and do not create any third-party beneficiary rights. You agree that you are not considered, and shall not represent yourself as, an agent, employee or joint venturer of Cove. All provisions of these Terms of Use shall survive termination, including, without limitation, ownership provisions, warranty disclaimers, indemnity, limitations of liability, injunctive relief, and other remedies, governing law, and other miscellaneous terms.
