3. Membership, Subscription, and Payment
a. You may register as a Member at no cost. As a Member, you may create a free profile and be able to browse other Members’ profiles, but you will not be able to access additional features associated with the Service. To access or use additional features, including the ability to communicate with other Members, you must become a paying subscriber to the Service. You acknowledge and agree that (i) if you are not a subscriber, you will not be able to use all the features available within the Website and Service, including communicating with other Members, and (ii) non-subscribing Members will not be able to use the Service to communicate with you. A Member profile (both subscribers and non-subscribers) may remain posted on the Website even if that Member is not actively using the Service. You acknowledge that, although a Member’s profile may be viewed, you may not (even as a subscriber) be able to use the Service to communicate with that Member if he or she is not then actively using the Service.
b. To use all features of the Website, you must subscribe to the Service. The fee for a subscription to the Service shall be $9.99 for a BRONZE – one month subscription (this is a reoccurring charge and will only stop if you cancel your membership), $19.99 for a SILVER – three month membership (one time charge – not reoccurring), $29.99 for a GOLD – 6 month membership (one time charge – not reoccurring), and 49.99 for a PLATINUM – lifetime membership (one time charge – not reoccurring.) A subscription begins on the date Single and Sober receives payment from you of the applicable subscription fee. The Company reserves the right to change the subscription fee at its sole discretion and for any reason. A Member will not be entitled to any refund for a subsequent fee change by the Company. We have a strict NO refund policy. Please search for members in your area before paying for a membership.
c. The Company bills you through an online account (your “Payment Account”) for use of the Service. You agree to pay the Company all charges at the price you agreed to for any use of the Service by you or other persons using your Payment Account, and you authorize the Company to charge your chosen payment provider for the Service. You agree to make payment using the payment method you select. If you reverse a payment to the Company, the Company has discretion to terminate your account immediately.
d. Your subscription will continue indefinitely until and unless you cancel it. After your initial subscription period, and again after any subsequent subscription period, your subscription will automatically continue for an additional equivalent period, at the price you agreed to when subscribing. You agree that your account will be subject to this automatic renewal feature if you choose the Bronze membership subscription. If you do not wish your account to renew automatically, or if you want to change or terminate your subscription, please log in and go to “My Account” on the Website and follow the directions for subscription modification or termination. Click here for directions to cancel your subscription and delete your profile.

By subscribing, you authorize the Company to charge your selected payment method now and again at the beginning of any subsequent subscription period. You also authorize the Company to charge you for any sales or similar taxes that may apply to your subscription payments.
f. You must provide current, complete, and accurate information for your Payment Account. If your Payment Account information changes, you must promptly update it (such as a change in billing address, credit card number, or expiration date). You agree to promptly notify the Company if your selected payment method is canceled, if you lose your credit/debit card or it is stolen, or if you become aware of a potential breach of security (such as an unauthorized disclosure or use of your name or password). Changes to payment information can be made in your “My Account” on the Website. If you fail to provide the Company any of the foregoing information, you agree that you are responsible for fees accrued under your Payment Account. In addition, you authorize us to obtain updated or replacement expiration dates and card numbers for you credit or debit card as provided by your credit or debit card issuer.

A Member can hide his or her profile at any time by following the instructions contained on the FAQ page.
