3.1.
 
For certain services on the Provider's site, the User must register themselves or can create a user account. The User confirms that the personal information provided while registering or creating a user account on the Provider's site—particularly the first and last names, mailing address, date of birth, and email address—are true and correct and that any changes to the information will be promptly reported to the Provider.

https://www.g33kdating.com/privacy
 
 
3.3. Conclusion of Contract for Paid Content
 
After entering your data and by clicking the “Buy Now” button, you make a legally binding request to conclude a contract.

This automatic receipt confirms acceptance of the order. The text of the contract will be stored in compliance with data protection legislation. The contract shall be concluded in German.
 
Members can also access paid features with a subscription.

Payment for paid features can also be made using virtual currency, also known as “Credits.” Usage rights hereof will be granted, but not ownership.

The terms "Buyer", "Seller," "Sell," "Purchase" and similar terms have correspondent meanings. The scope and duration of the granted usage rights depend on the particular virtual currency or premium feature. These usage rights end, at the latest, along with the contract based on these terms. The parties agree that the services should begin immediately after conclusion of the contract; that is, during the cancellation period.

Virtual currency does not represent real money.

There is no entitlement to exchange for real currency. Once virtual currency is purchased, the User cannot, in accordance with the terms set forth in these Terms of Service, exchange it again for money.
