These terms of service (the “Terms”) govern your access to and use of EZcouple (“we” or “our”) website and services (the “Services”), so please carefully read them before using the Services. The Services mostly cover both the member area that is password protected area of the website, and the public pages of the website.
By using the Services you agree to be bound by these Terms.
You may use the Services only in compliance with these Terms. You may use the Services only if you have the power to form a contract with EZcouple and are not barred under any applicable laws from doing so. The Services may continue to change over time as we refine and add more features. We may stop, suspend, or modify the Services at any time without prior notice to you. We may also remove any content from our Services at our discretion (See Acceptable Use Policy below).
Your Data & Your Privacy
By using our Services you provide us with information, posts, that you submit to EZcouple (together, “your data”). You retain full ownership to your data. We don’t claim any ownership to any of it. These Terms do not grant us any rights to your data or intellectual property except for the limited rights that are needed to run the Services, as explained below.
We may need your permission to do things you ask us to do with your data, for example, sharing them with other users. This includes design choices we make to technically administer our Services, for example, how we redundantly backup data to keep it safe. You give us the permissions we need to do those things solely to provide the Services. This permission also extends to trusted third parties we work with to provide the Services.
You are solely responsible for your conduct, the content of your pages, and your communications with others while using the Services. For example, it’s your responsibility to ensure that you have the rights or permission needed to comply with these Terms.
We may choose to review public content for compliance with our community guidelines, but you acknowledge that EZcouple has no obligation to monitor any information on the Services. We are not responsible for the accuracy, completeness, appropriateness, or legality of users’ posts, or any other information you may be able to access using the Services.
Payment Information & Your Sensitive Data
The membership services are available for a fee after a free trial period during which no payment is asked. The fee at the end of the trial covers the full registration of the couple, so two persons on the same account. It is payable by either partner, and that fee covers the use of the services for each month with a monthly subscription, or the entire year for the yearly option, renewable. An account consists at the minimum of a couple, so two people involved in a romantic relationship. After the initial registration and payment of the first partner, all users invited to join that particular account should not be charged any fee.
The fee covers the use of the services by the couple, so both partners.
Your credit card details are not saved in our database, and only one credit card can be saved via a customer ID encryption transmitted to the third party we use to process your payment safely.
Sharing Your Data
The Services provide features that allow you to share part of your data with specifically selected persons. The rules behind sharing data aim to facilitate a truthful and honest communication between the users in order to provide a reliable support to one couple in particular. There are many things that users may do with that data (for example, copy it, add to it, re-share it). Please consider carefully what you choose to share. EZcouple has no responsibility for that activity.
Advertisement and Affiliate Programs
Posts and other content in the Services may be protected by intellectual property rights of others. Please do not copy, upload, download, or share files unless you have the right to do so. You, not EZcouple, will be fully responsible and liable for what you copy, share, upload, download or otherwise use while using the Services. You must not upload spyware or any other malicious software to the Service; that would result in the immediate ban of your account and due process.
If your contact information, or other information related to your account, changes, you must notify us promptly and keep your information current. The Services are not intended for use by you if you are under 18 years of age. By agreeing to these Terms, you are representing to us that you are over 18.
You are responsible for safeguarding the password that you use to access the Services and you agree not to disclose your password to any third party. You are responsible for any activity using your account, whether or not you authorized that activity. You should immediately notify EZcouple of any unauthorized use of your account. You acknowledge that if you wish to protect your transmission of data to EZcouple, it is your responsibility to use a secure encrypted connection to communicate with the Services.
EZcouple Property and Feedback
These terms do not grant you any right, title, or interest in the Services, or the content in the Services. While we appreciate it when users send us feedback, please be aware that we may use any feedback, comments, or suggestions you send us without any obligation to you. The Software and other technology we use to provide the Services are protected by copyright, trademark, and other laws of both the United States and foreign countries.

EZcouple respects others’ intellectual property and asks that you do too. All emails, texts, posts within design features produced by EZcouple are copyrighted. Any alleged infringements should be reported to EZcouple as soon as possible.
The Services may contain links to third-party websites or resources. The public area of the website uses various types of advertisements clearly identified as such. EZcouple does not endorse and is not responsible or liable for their availability, accuracy, the related content, products, or services. You are solely responsible for your use of any such websites or resources.
Though we’d much rather you stay, you can stop using our Services any time. You may click here for that purpose. Your termination will not be retroactive; if you were to cancel your account less than 3 days before the due date of your monthly subscription, the next payment will be processed and only the following payment will stop.
If you were to cancel your payment within 3 days of your yearly renewal and you have not opted out from the auto-renewal, we will charge you the following month and then cancel your account. Your account will stay dormant for a period 6 months after which all personal data that we don’t use to analyze our services, will be permanently deleted.
We reserve the right to suspend or end the Services at any time, with or without cause, and with or without notice. For example, we may suspend or terminate your use if you are not complying with these Terms, or use the Services in any way that would cause us legal liability or disrupt others’ use of the Services. If we suspend or terminate your use, we will try to let you know in advance and help you retrieve data, though there may be some cases (for example, repeatedly or flagrantly violating these Terms, a court order, or danger to other users) where we may suspend immediately.
EZcouple is Available “AS-IS”
Though we want to provide a great service and we thrive to constantly improve your experience, there are certain things about the service we can’t promise. For example, the services are provided “As -Is”, at your own risk, without express or implied warranty or condition of any kind. We also disclaim any warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose EZcouple will have no responsibility for any harm to your computer system, loss or corruption of data, or other harm that results from your access to or use of the Services. Some states in the United States of America do not allow the types of disclaimers in this paragraph, so they may not apply to you.
Limitation of Liability
To the fullest extent permitted by law, in no event will EZcouple, its affiliates, officers, employees, agents, suppliers or licensors be liable for (A) any indirect, special, incidental, punitive, exemplary or consequential (loss of use, data, business or profits) damages, regardless of legal theory, whether or not EZcouple has been warned of the possibility of such damages, and even if a remedy fails of its essential purpose; (B) aggregate liability for all claims relating to the services.
Some states of the United States of America do not allow the types of limitations in this paragraph, so they may not apply to you.
We may revise these Terms from time to time and the most current version will always be posted on our website. If a revision, in our sole discretion, is material we will notify you, the registered members, (for example via email to the email address associated with your account). Other changes may be posted to our terms page, so please check this page regularly. By continuing to access or use the Services after revisions become effective, you agree to be bound by the revised Terms. If you do not agree to the new terms, please stop using the Services.
Miscellaneous Legal Terms
These terms and the use of the services will be governed by the State of New-York law except for its conflicts of laws principles. All claims arising out of or relating to these terms or the services must be litigated exclusively in the federal or state courts of New-York City, New-York, and both parties consent to venue and personal jurisdiction there. These Terms constitute the entire and exclusive agreement between you and EZcouple with respect to the Services, and supersede and replace any other agreements, terms and conditions applicable to the Services. These Terms create no third party beneficiary rights. EZcouple’s failure to enforce a provision is not a waiver of its right to do so later. If a provision is found unenforceable the remaining provisions of the Agreement will remain in full effect and an enforceable term will be substituted reflecting our intent as closely as possible. You may not assign any of your rights in these Terms, and any such attempt is void, but EZcouple may assign its rights to any of its affiliates or subsidiaries, or to any successor in interest of any business associated with the Services. EZcouple and you are not legal partners or agents; instead, our relationship is that of independent contractors.
