Quentin's Friends Membership Agreement

Date of Last Revision: February 9th, 2009

Below is the complete Membership Agreement. Your use of the Quentin’s Friends site and service constitutes your acceptance of this Membership Agreement.

Quick points

Here are some of the most important points of which you should please take note:

Values

Quentin’s Friends was founded based on a set of core community Values (referred to in the Membership Agreement as the ‘Values’): Honesty, Integrity, Courtesy, Respect, Generosity, Gratitude, Fun, Positivity, Open-Mindedness, Sense of Humor(!). By agreeing to the Membership Agreement you agree that your participation and any interaction with Quentin’s Friends and our members will reflect and uphold these values (e.g. always acting with the utmost honesty, courtesy and respect). To protect the integrity of the group, you agree to advise Quentin’s Friends if you become aware that another Member has contravened our Values, Code of Conduct or Membership Agreement.
To see how to take action with regard to this, please see the FAQ complaints procedure.

Eligibility

You must be 18 or older to participate in Quentin’s Friends.

Inviting Friends

You agree to only invite friends who you know well, whose character you can vouch for without reservation and who you are sure share and will uphold our community Values. Should an issue arise with a Member that you have invited to join, you may be asked to help resolve it. You commit to only invite friends based on their suitability in terms of the Values and the positive contribution they will make to the community. Offering access to Quentin’s Friends should never be offered or withheld for your personal gain/leverage.

One Trial Period Per Member

Only one Trial Period per individual is allowed. Use of a different email address or reception of an invite for a Trial Period does not entitle you to an additional Trial Period. Trial and Past Members who receive an invite for a Trial Membership and wish to reactivate their membership should simply Upgrade/Reactivate their membership.

Exception to this rule

Alumni (Past) Members – those members who unsubscribed before May 1st, 2014 and have therefore not experienced the website launched at this time, are entitled to a second Trial Membership. To do this, they should go to the home page and click on ‘Please Register’; they will then be offered this Trial Membership.
Alumni (Past) Members who last unsubscribed after May 1st, 2014 and who attempt to enjoy a second Trial Period may be banned/permanently removed from Quentin’s Friends. Members who knowingly invite friends for a second Trial Membership may also be subject to censure.

Membership Dues

Once you upgrade to full membership, you agree to pay the applicable membership dues as they become due and reimburse us for any collection costs and interest for any overdue amounts. Your dues will be charged quarterly (from your initial payment date) to the credit card with which you make your initial payment.

Commitment to keeping your credit card up-to-date

If your card expires, is terminated or the number changes, (or if you simply wish to use a different credit card) you will do your best to update your card information with Quentin’s Friends before your membership dues are due, to avoid the card being declined.

Editing content

We reserve the right to make edits to your posts or other content uploaded to the site to ensure clarity of information, content suitability based on our posting guidelines and community Values and to ensure correct formatting.

Interactions Between Members

While all members have been invited by another member who has vouched for their character, while all interactions should reflect our community values and while Members can check other Members’ profiles to see how long they have been a member, past postings, inviter etc., Members should take the same precautionary steps in dealing with other Members as they would with non-members. Parties to a transaction are solely responsible for all interactions with each other, for arranging for payment and the exchange of the goods or services purchased if applicable, and for the results and performance of any transaction or relationship entered into through Quentin’s Friends. In particular when working together in partnership, contracting services, selling or buying items etc. terms should be agreed in writing, to avoid misunderstandings.

Q’nnections (Connecting with other Members)

As a Member of Quentin’s Friends you have the ability to connect (‘Q’nnect’) with other members via their profile. Please only invite to Q’nnect, or accept Q’nnection requests from members that you know, with whom you have a relationship of some kind and/or with whom you have already interacted with to some extent.

No Network Marketing / MLM

While Quentin's Friends does not have a specific point of view with regard to Direct Sales, Multi-level or Network Marketing, our members have made it clear that they do not wish to receive invitations to ‘opportunity meetings’ or recruitment solicitations. Thus no activities are allowed which are designed to drive participation, directly or indirectly, in the setting up or development of a network which seeks to implement practices which are similar to sales by network or multi-level marketing.

Refunds

We do not offer refunds. All members will have had the opportunity to enjoy a 1 month Trial Membership during which they can assess whether they wish to upgrade or not. If/when a member unsubscribes, they have the option to continue their membership till the end of their current payment period or to stop it immediately. In the latter case, we do not offer full or pro-rata refunds. Quentin’s Friends reserves the right to disallow any member-generated content (in Member Profiles, in our listserv and/or message archive postings) based upon our posting guidelines and our community Values. Disallowing a posting or content will not justify a membership dues refund. The only instance in which a refund will be made is when a paid posting has been disallowed. In this case the posting fee will be refunded. Refunds will also not be made if a membership is terminated by Quentin’s Friends due to a violation of the Membership Agreement, Posting Guidelines, or a contravention of a community Values.
