4. Performance Guarantee

When you purchase a membership in any Professional Jewish Matchmaking service, you are buying a contract for services from a professional matchmaking company engaged in finding, vetting, and referring you to potential soul-mates-for-life persons with whom you might fall in love and form a life-long, committed relationship. Professional Jewish Matchmaking guarantees that we will refer you to at least 6 such persons during a six-month membership; and to at least 12 such persons during a one year membership. It is understood, however, that this guarantee will become null and void should Professional Jewish Matchmaking determine at any time that you have been untruthful, inaccurate, deceitful, deceptive, or misleading in any way in providing information for your Member Profile the primary instrument by which we gather the information we need to carry out an effective and fruitful search on your behalf. 

5. Personally – Identifying Information

By the nature of our business, visitors to a Professional Jewish Matchmaking website choose to interact with Professional Jewish Matchmaking in ways that require us to gather a great deal of personally-identifying information, particularly through the use of our Member Profile form. This form, when it is signed by a member, gives Professional Jewish Matchmaking specific permission to share this information with an indefinite number of carefully vetted potential partners. It also contains a specific prohibition against members sharing this information with any third party. We don’t disclose personally-identifying information to anyone except other members. If Professional Jewish Matchmaking discovers that a member has shared another member’s profile with anyone that member’s contract will immediately become null and void, and the member will not be entitled to any refund of his or her membership fee.

We don’t collect personally identifiable information from persons under the age of 18. If we become aware that an underage person has provided us with personally identifiable information, we will immediately delete such information.

We disclose potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of our employees, contractors and affiliated organizations who (a) need to know that information in order to process it on the Company’s behalf or to provide services available at the website; and (b) who have agreed not to disclose it to others. Other than to our employees, contractors and affiliated organizations or as described above, we disclose potentially personally- identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when we believe in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Professional Jewish Matchmaking, third parties, or the public at large.
