Terms of Use


This agreement represents the terms on which we offer you a Zidelity membership. By registering for a membership, you accept these terms.

Services. We offer two types of membership: “Premier” and “Search Only.” A Search Only membership let you check if another person has a Premier membership. Premier membership include that search capability plus the following:

  • You can create a profile that other Premier members can see. We assign each profile a “zScore” representing our opinion about a member’s reputation for honesty and openness. We may change the way we compute zScores at any time in our editorial discretion. Therefore, your zScore might change even if your data does not.
  • You can link with other members’ profiles (if they consent), specify your relationship with the other member, and see linked members’ profiles.
  • You can pseudonymously share limited parts of your profile with another member and review the limited profile of another member using zPeek.

During the trial period, “Premier” members can use the service without verifying their identity, but they must verify their identity after the trial period ends. If a member has not verified his/her identity, a note indicating this fact is shown to other members who interact with him/her.

Eligibility. You must provide us with accurate registration information. Providing false registration information may constitute identity theft, e-personation or other crimes, and we intend to cooperate with law enforcement in prosecuting criminals. We will attempt to verify your registration information once you choose to verify your identity, but we may subsequently terminate your membership without a refund if we later learn that you falsified your registration information (even if we didn’t detect that during our initial verification). We allow only one premier account per person. You may not share your account password with anyone else. Among other restricted user groups, we do not offer services to users below the age of majority, international users, or users who claim to have more than one spouse.

Relying on Site Information. We seek to help our members communicate accurate information about their relationship status with each other. Despite our efforts, however, we cannot ensure that information on the site is in fact accurate. You should independently investigate any information you plan to rely on. It is noteworthy that during the trial period the identity of a “Premier” member is not verified so the person may or may not be who he/she claims to be. A note indicating that the person has not verified his/her identity is shown to other members who interact with him/her. Due to the fact that our focus is on relationships only, you should not use this site’s information for any other purpose, such as identity verification. You release us (and our officers, directors, agents, subsidiaries, joint ventures and employees) from claims, demands and damages (actual and consequential) of every kind and nature, known and unknown, arising out of or in any way connected with the information on our site or any consequences that occur from your (or another member’s) reliance on it. If you are a California resident, you waive California Civil Code §1542, which says: "A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which if known by him must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor."

However, we can publish your Content in accordance with our privacy policy, and in some cases we may limit your ability to edit or remove Content from Zidelity.com.

Payment and Termination. All membership fees are prepaid and non-refundable. You can cancel your membership at any time by contacting us, but you will not receive any refund. We can cancel or suspend your account, or otherwise refuse service to you, for violations of this agreement or our other policies, repeat IP infringement, harassing behavior or otherwise in our editorial discretion, and you will not receive any refund.

Internet Dating Service Disclosures. We’re not an “Internet dating service” as regulators have defined the term, but we pass along the following information nevertheless:

  • Anyone who is able to commit identity theft can also falsify a dating profile.
  • There is no substitute for acting with caution when communicating with any stranger who wants to meet you.
  • Never include your last name, email address, home address, phone number, place of work, or any other identifying information in your public Internet dating profile or initial email messages. Stop communicating with anyone who pressures you for personal or financial information or attempts in any way to trick you into revealing it.
  • If you choose to have a face-to-face meeting with another member, always tell someone in your family or a friend where you are going and when you will return. Never agree to be picked up at your home. Always provide your own transportation to and from your date and meet in a public place with many people around.

WE DO NOT CONDUCT CRIMINAL BACKGROUND SCREENINGS.

General. This agreement does not create any agency, partnership, joint venture, employment or franchise relationship. Any unenforceable portion of this agreement shall be enforced to the maximum extent possible, and the remaining portions shall be given full effect. Our failure to act in a particular circumstance does not waive our right to act with respect to that or other circumstances. We shall be excused for any problem due to a circumstance beyond our control.
