Please note: DUNYA is operated by Dunya LLC (“us,” “we,” the “Company”, “App”, “Website” or “DUNYA”). Together you and DUNYA may be referred to as the “Parties” or separately as “Party.”
This is a contract between you and Dunya LLC (as defined further below) and we want you to know yours and our rights before you use the Dunya website or application (“Dunya” or the “App”). Please take a few moments to read these Terms before enjoying the App, because once you access, view or use the App, you are going to be legally bound by these Terms.
Please be aware that if you subscribe to services for a term (the “Initial Term”), then the terms of your subscription will be automatically renewed for additional periods of the same duration as the Initial Term at DUNYA’s then-current fee for such services, unless you cancel your subscription in accordance with Section 10 below.
And a notice to California subscribers:
You may cancel your subscription, without penalty or obligation, at any time prior to midnight of the third business day following the date you subscribed.

We may make changes to this Agreement and to the Service from time to time. We may do this for a variety of reasons including to reflect changes in or requirements of the law, new features, or changes in business practices. The most recent version of this Agreement will be posted on the Service under Settings, and you should regularly check for the most recent version. The most recent version is the version that applies. If the changes include material changes that affect your rights or obligations, we will notify you in advance of the changes by reasonable means, which could include notification through the Service or via email. If you continue to use the Service after the changes become effective, then you agree to the revised Agreement. You agree that this Agreement shall supersede any prior agreements (except as specifically stated herein), and shall govern your entire relationship with DUNYA, including but not limited to events, agreements, and conduct preceding your acceptance of this Agreement.
You must be at least 18 years of age to create an account on DUNYA and use the Service. By creating an account and using the Service, you represent and warrant that:
- you can form a binding contract with DUNYA,
- you are not a person who is barred from using the Service under the laws of the United States or any other applicable jurisdiction (for example, you do not appear on the U.S. Treasury Department’s list of Specially Designated Nationals or face any other similar prohibition),
- you will comply with this Agreement and all applicable local, state, national and international laws, rules and regulations, including without limitation, privacy laws, intellectual property laws, anti-spam laws, and regulatory requirements,
- you have not committed, been convicted of, or pled no contest to a felony, a sex crime, or any crime involving violence or a threat of violence, unless you have received clemency for a non-violent crime and we have determined that you are not likely to pose a threat to other users of our Service, and that you are not required to register as a sex offender with any state, federal or local sex offender registry,
- you will use the latest version of the Service (via app or website),
- you do not have more than one account on the Service, and
- you have not previously been removed from the Service by us, unless you have our express written permission to create a new account.
If at any time you cease to meet these requirements, all authorization to access our Service or systems is automatically revoked, and you must immediately delete your account.
3. Your Account
You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your login credentials you use to sign up for DUNYA, and you are solely responsible for all activities that occur under those credentials. If you think someone has gained access to your account, please immediately contact us.
4. Modifying the Service and Termination
DUNYA is always striving to improve the Service and bring you additional functionality that you will find engaging and useful. This means we may add new product features or enhancements from time to time as well as remove some features, and if these actions do not materially affect your rights or obligations, we may not provide you with notice before taking them. We may even suspend the Service entirely, in which event we will notify you in advance unless extenuating circumstances, such as safety or security concerns, prevent us from doing so.
You may terminate your account at any time, for any reason, by following the instructions in “Settings” in the Service, however if you use a third party payment account, you will need to manage in app purchases through such account (e.g., iTunes, Google Play) to avoid additional billing.
DUNYA may terminate your account at any time without notice if it believes that you have violated this Agreement. Upon such termination, you will not be entitled to any refund for purchases. After your account is terminated, this Agreement will terminate, except that the following provisions will still apply to you and DUNYA: Section 4, Section 5, and Sections 12 through 19.
5. Safety; Your Interactions with Other Members
Though DUNYA strives to encourage a respectful member experience through features like the double opt-in that allows members to communicate only after they have both indicated interest in one another, it is not responsible for the conduct of any member on or off of the Service. You agree to use caution in all interactions with other members, particularly if you decide to communicate off the Service or meet in person. In addition, you agree to review and follow Safety Tips prior to using the Service. You agree that you will not provide your financial information (for example, your credit card or bank account information), or wire or otherwise send money, to other members.
You are solely responsible for your interactions with other members. You understand that DUNYA does not conduct criminal background checks on its members or otherwise inquire into the background of its members. DUNYA makes no representations or warranties as to the conduct of members. DUNYA reserves the right to conduct – and you authorize DUNYA to conduct – any criminal background check or other screenings (such as sex offender register searches) at any time using available public records obtained by it or with the assistance of a consumer reporting agency, and you agree that any information you provide may be used for that purpose.

9. Other Members’ Content
Although DUNYA reserves the right to review and remove Content that violates this Agreement, such Content is the sole responsibility of the member who posts it, and DUNYA cannot guarantee that all Content will comply with this Agreement. If you see Content on the Service that violates this Agreement, please report it within the Service or via our contact page.
Generally. From time to time, DUNYA may offer products and services for purchase (“in app purchases”) through iTunes, Google Play, carrier billing, DUNYA direct billing or other payment platforms authorized by DUNYA. If you choose to make an in app purchase, you will be prompted to confirm your purchase with the applicable payment provider, and your method of payment (be it your card or a third party account such as Google Play or iTunes) (your “Payment Method”) will be charged at the prices displayed to you for the service(s) you’ve selected as well as any sales or similar taxes that may be imposed on your payments, and you authorize DUNYA or the third party account, as applicable, to charge you.
Auto-Renewal. If you purchase an auto-recurring periodic subscription, your Payment Method will continue to be billed for the subscription until you cancel. After your initial subscription commitment period, and again after any subsequent subscription period, your subscription will automatically continue for an additional equivalent period, at the price you agreed to when subscribing. If you do not wish your subscription to renew automatically, or if you want to change or terminate your subscription, you will need to access your third party account (or Account Settings on DUNYA) and follow instructions to cancel your subscription, even if you have otherwise deleted your account with us or if you have deleted the DUNYA application from your device. Deleting your account on DUNYA or deleting the DUNYA application from your device does not cancel your subscription; DUNYA will retain all funds charged to your Payment Method until you cancel your subscription on DUNYA or the third party account, as applicable. If you cancel your subscription, you may use your subscription until the end of your then-current subscription term, and your subscription will not be renewed after your then-current term expires.
Additional Terms that apply if you pay DUNYA directly with your Payment Method. If you pay DUNYA directly, DUNYA may correct any billing errors or mistakes that it makes even if it has already requested or received payment. If you initiate a chargeback or otherwise reverse a payment made with your Payment Method, DUNYA may terminate your account immediately in its sole discretion.
You may edit your Payment Method information by visiting DUNYA and going to Settings. If a payment is not successfully settled, due to expiration, insufficient funds, or otherwise, and you do not edit your Payment Method information or cancel your subscription, you remain responsible for any uncollected amounts and authorize us to continue billing the Payment Method, as it may be updated. This may result in a change to your payment billing dates. In addition, you authorize us to obtain updated or replacement expiration dates and card numbers for your credit or debit card as provided by your credit or debit card issuer. The terms of your payment will be based on your Payment Method and may be determined by agreements between you and the financial institution, credit card issuer or other provider of your chosen Payment Method.
SuperLikes and Other Virtual Items. From time to time, you may be able to purchase, a limited, personal, non-transferable, non-sublicensable, revocable license to use “virtual items,” including but not limited to SuperLikes (collectively, “Virtual Items”). Any Virtual Item balance shown in your account does not constitute a real-world balance or reflect any stored value, but instead constitutes a measurement of the extent of your license. Virtual Items do not incur fees for non-use, however, the license granted to you in Virtual Items will terminate in accordance with the terms of this Agreement, when DUNYA ceases providing the Service or your account is otherwise closed or terminated. DUNYA, in its sole discretion, reserves the right to charge fees for the right to access or use Virtual Items and/ or may distribute Virtual Items with or without charge. DUNYA may manage, regulate, control, modify or eliminate Virtual Items at any time. DUNYA shall have no liability to you or any third party in the event that DUNYA exercises any such rights. Virtual Items may only be redeemed through the Service. All purchases and redemptions of virtual items made through the service are final and non-refundable. The provision of virtual items for use in the service is a service that commences immediately upon the acceptance of your purchase of such virtual items. You acknowledge that DUNYA is not required to provide a refund for any reason, and that you will not receive money or other compensation for unused virtual items when an account is closed, whether such closure was voluntary or involuntary.
Refunds. Generally, all charges for purchases are nonrefundable, and there are no refunds or credits for partially used periods. We may make an exception if a refund for a subscription offering is requested within fourteen days of the transaction date, or if the laws applicable in your jurisdiction provide for refunds.
