Terms of service

GLXY.EU gives you the chance to communicate with other individuals through our service.

We work hard every day to be a safe and friendly website for homosexuals, bisexuals, lesbians, transgender people and other sexual minorities. To accomplish that, we need you to respect our terms of service.

  1. All the information you make available on our site must be accurate; this includes age and location. It is against our terms of service to upload pictures of others and present them as being of yourself. Such violations will result in suspension without any warning.
    Furthermore, profiles containing full names, phone numbers, or anything else that can identify you or other individuals are not acceptable. Such information must only be shared in private messages.
  2. We do not tolerate any hatred, harassment, racism, bullying or defamatory comments, as well as anything that is contrary to Estonian legislation.
  3. Offering commercial services is only allowed on the ‘Market’ page Sexual services may only be offered in the escort section of the page by individuals over the age of 18. If we suspect that the escort services are organized by someone else, the account(s] will be suspended, and the police will be contacted.
  4. Any misuse of our technology will result in suspension and a possible lawsuit.
  5. Your GLXY membership is personal, and linked to you as an individual. All other kinds of other activities must be clarified with GLXY; this includes organizations, venues, journalists and scientists who wish to reach out to our members.
  6. As HIV and AIDS is a serious problem all over the world including amongst LGBT people, we are the first dating site in the world to not allow our users to seek unprotected “bareback” sex. User profiles promoting unsafe sex, or private messages to other users seeking such a thing, will be suspended as soon as the matter has been brought to our attention.
  7. As a member, we expect you to contact us immediately if you see that any of our terms of services are being violated.
  8. The age limit on GLXY is 14. We do not allow individuals under 14 years of age to become a member. If we become aware of such a violation, your account will be suspended.
  9. GLXY cannot be held responsible for any event, situation or personal or economic loss that occurs as a result of a meeting initiated using our service. When physically meeting someone for the first time, we always recommend the first meeting to take place in a public space, such as a restaurant or a café. We recommend that you be especially careful when in contact with newly registered members. If you have a bad feeling about something or someone, please contact us, and we will assist you!
  10. To avoid fraudulent accounts, there are several security measurements on our site. Every member can optionally have their identity verified by our team. Alternatively, other members may verify each other and leave each other references. All new profile pictures are automatically looked up by Google Reverse image search. If the profile picture is suspected to be fake, the profile will be deactivated until a verification has taken place.


Privacy

Your right to privacy, anonymity and security is important to us. All the information that you share and receive on this website will be strictly kept confidential. We never reveal any information to anyone. Such information will only be given to law enforcement when a court order has been given.

We collect IP addresses for 12 months to prevent misuse of our service.

Your profile will be deactivated if you have not logged in for more than 3 months. Even if you decide to delete your account, it will still be stored in our database for 3 months. This to prevent any kind of criminal activity.

Image policy

These rules ONLY apply to profile pictures (the main image on your profile]. You are allowed to have pornographic images in your private gallery, and as your cover photo, so long as they do not breach Estonian legislation.

  1. Naked images and images of genitals must NOT be used as a profile picture. This also includes images involving partial nudity, or where genitals are focused on through clothes, including swimming outfits.
  2. Profile pictures should always show the owner of the profile. Images of children, commercial images, or photos that are not of yourself are not allowed.
  3. As before, users under the age of 18 are not allowed to upload ANY kind of pornography or sexualized images.
  4. Images must be marked correctly – nudity that has not been marked as “porn/sexuality” will be removed and considered a violation.

What will happen if you violate our image policy?

  1. First violation: image removal and a warning
  2. Second violation: image removal and banned for 24 hours
  3. Third violation: image removal and banned for 4 weeks.
  4. Fourth violation: image removal and permanently banned. Your IP address will be blocked for 1 year. This prevents you from creating a new account.

Why are we doing this?

Nudity and sex is important for a lot of us, but there are situations in life where such images are inappropriate. We want to be a website for everyone, and a website that can be used by everyone, everywhere. You should safely be able to open GLXY on the bus, in the classroom, at work, and when visiting your grandmother.

Thank you for your cooperation, and welcome to GLXY!
