eH+ is ancillary to the social referral services offered by eHarmony at eHarmony.com and/or CompatiblePartners.net (each, an “eHarmony Service”), and you are not under any obligation to purchase eH+. Subscribing to eH+ will not allow you to obtain more matches than what would generate during the course of your subscription to the eHarmony Services, but will add a special human touch to the matches generated by the Compatibility Matching System that you will receive under the basic service, and that human touch may result in a different priority ranking in selection and delivery of your matches. Because that human touch is costly and involves personal attention and special judgment, eHarmony charges a premium for eH+.
You acknowledge that an existing, basic eHarmony Service subscription cannot be converted into an eH+ account and an eH+ account cannot be converted into a basic eHarmony Service subscription. If you have an existing eHarmony basic social referral service, it will be closed by an eHarmony sales executive prior to the opening of an eH+ account. You acknowledge and agree that the eH+ service will be your sole eHarmony social referral service during the term of your subscription.
Matchmaker Access to Your Information; Primarily Offline Service
eH+ is a premium offering which allows you to use the eHarmony services under the guidance and with the express involvement of a matchmaker (the “Matchmaker”) as described below. You acknowledge that the Matchmaker will have full access to all the information you provide to eHarmony and will use such information solely in connection with providing you with the eH+ service. You also acknowledge that eH+ is a primarily offline service. You understand that after you have completed the Relationship Questionnaire and uploaded photos to your account, your Matchmaker will be responsible for managing the service for you, and you will no longer have access to the online account. Matchmakers will be providing you with feedback on your profile, matches, or anything else connected to eH+. You understand and acknowledge that you are not entering a psychotherapist-patient relationship with your Matchmaker, and eH+ is not intended to take the place of participation in psychotherapy.
You agree to be available for an in-depth phone interview with the Matchmaker, to be scheduled at a reasonably and mutually convenient time. During this interview, the Matchmaker will use your eH+ profile to gain more insight into your preferences and requirements in a relationship. You will receive constructive feedback from the Matchmaker on how your profile can be improved or otherwise altered to make it more effective. You also agree to be available to your Matchmaker on an ongoing basis during your subscription term for discussions about your profile, matches, progress and general state of your eH+ account, in order to make the service as effective as possible.
Based on the interview or further discussions, the Matchmaker will discuss any suggested modification(s) to your profile and account settings, including without limitation changing your profile responses, and adjustment of the preference and self-select criteria in your profile (in order to bring it into compliance with the interview results). You expressly agree that the Matchmaker will have access to your profile in order to make such modifications, and that you will not have access to make such modifications on your own.
The Matchmaker will review the potential pairings based on your updated profile and other preferences you may have expressed. Our Compatibility Matching System will search the eHarmony database for all your potential pairings, and the Matchmaker will hand-select the best matches for you from such potential pairings. Your profile will not be visible or provided to any of the matches who were generated by eHarmony’s Compatibility Matching System but not personally selected by your Matchmaker as a great match for you. During the term of your subscription, the Matchmaker will continue to review and select matches for you from the pool of potential pairings on an ongoing basis.
After the Matchmaker selects a match for you, the Matchmaker will personally contact the match to gauge their interest in your profile.
By registering to eH+, you understand and acknowledge that the Matchmaker will send your full or partial profile via email to a selected match and/or discuss your potential pairing with a match without your prior approval.
Your profile will only be sent to selected matches for the purpose of determining the matches’ interest in you. The Matchmaker will provide your profile information to a match to the extent that this information would be available through the basic eHarmony Services. As an example, a Matchmaker may provide your photo, first name, occupation and list of favorite things, but would not provide your last name, address, phone number or email address without your prior written consent. Furthermore, you acknowledge that your Matchmaker may discuss his or her general impressions of you (gathered through your communications with the Matchmaker), not including any personally identifiable information, to a selected match. If a selected match responds positively to the Matchmaker’s communication, your Matchmaker will contact you with information about the selected match via your preferred mode of communication. Information provided to you by your Matchmaker about a selected match will be limited to information that would be available to matches using the basic eHarmony Services. After a positive response by a selected match, you and your Matchmaker will decide on the best way for communication to proceed between you and the match. If a selected match does not respond to a Matchmaker’s communication or responds negatively, your Matchmaker will not notify you of the communication or provide information about this match. Your Matchmaker will not provide your personal contact information to a selected match or vice versa without the prior written approval of the person whose information is to be disclosed.
Background checks and Endorsements
In accordance with the eHarmony Services general Terms and Conditions of Service, EHARMONY DOES NOT CONDUCT BACKGROUND CHECKS ON ITS MEMBERS. Furthermore, Matchmaker feedback or recommendations are not endorsements. As in the use of the basic eHarmony Services, we strongly encourage you to read our Safety Tips prior to communicating with or meeting any of your eH+ matches.
Neither eHarmony nor the Matchmaker will be responsible for arranging personal meetings between you and your match(es) or for ensuring positive results or any other aspect of such meetings.
eHarmony will provide you with a Match Attribute page, which lists the top attributes you require in a match, for your review and acknowledgement. If your Matchmaker reasonably determines that a match shares most of the attributes on your Match Attribute page, such match is considered by eHarmony as eligible for an Introduction (“Eligible Match”). An Introduction happens when an Eligible Match expresses interest in meeting the applicable eH+ member and is subsequently “introduced” to the member by the Matchmaker via the eH+ system. The following number of Introductions are guaranteed to eH+ members:
- If you purchased a 6 month eH+ subscription, eHarmony guarantees that you will receive a minimum of 5 Introductions and a maximum of 8 Introductions during the term of your membership.
- If you purchased a 12 month eH+ subscription, eHarmony guarantees that you will receive a minimum of 12 Introductions and a maximum of 18 Introductions during the term of your membership.
- eHarmony makes no other guarantees in connection with this Service.
eH+ subscriptions are refundable under the following circumstances:
Except as set forth in this Section (j), eHarmony’s General Terms refund policy shall apply.
Fully refundable if a refund request is made within 3 business days of purchase in accordance with the general Terms and Conditions.
For any refunds requested after the initial 3 business days, eH+ members may obtain a partial refund after paying a $1,000 early termination fee and the pro-rated balance of their subscription.
Reservation of Right
We reserve the right to change the assignment of Matchmakers as necessary in order to provide the Service. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, we reserve the right at our discretion to cancel your eH+ service at any time by providing you with an appropriate refund (if warranted). To the extent permitted by law, we reserve the right to deny the provision of eH+ to anyone. The cancellation and refund terms in our eHarmony Services terms and conditions are applicable to eH+.
5. MESSAGE TRACKER
Message Tracker is a service that provides you with a notification within your eHarmony account when a match has opened your Guided or eH Mail message. The following terms and conditions govern your use of Message Tracker.
Purchasing Message Tracker
Message Tracker may be purchased in the communication portal for any open match. After confirming that you wish to purchase Message Tracker for a match (“MT Match”), a Message Tracker fee will be charged by us to your card/account on file.
Message Tracker may only be purchased on an a-la-carte or individual basis. This service is not currently available as part of another product or service.
One Message Tracker Per Match
You agree that each purchase of Message Tracker will be applied to communication between you and only one match. Notifications for additional matches will require separate Message Tracker purchases.
You will continue to receive Message Tracker notifications for as long as communication between you and the MT Match continues through eHarmony. For messages sent after your purchase of Message Tracker, you will receive’ read receipt’ notifications via email and you may access ‘read receipt’ notifications on your dashboard portal and match communication portal for the MT Match after that match has opened your message. For messages that were sent to an MT Match prior to your Message Tracker purchase (but after March 31, 2014), you will be able to access the ‘read receipt’ notification only in your match communication portal after the match has opened your message.
You acknowledge and agree that we will not refund you at any time after purchase of Message Tracker unless we are not able to deliver the service. A lack of notification due to a match’s failure to open your message does not constitute non-delivery on our part.
Incognito is a service which enables you to view your open matches’ profiles anonymously, and is available for purchase to eHarmony Singles subscribers only. When you view a match with Incognito, your match will receive notification that another member has anonymously viewed his or her profile.
The following terms and conditions govern your use of Incognito.
- Access to Incognito. If you purchased Incognito on an a la carte basis, the service is available to you for the current term of your subscription and shall expire upon the expiration or termination of your subscription to the eHarmony services. Incognito will renew for subsequent terms in accordance with the terms Agreement.
- Match Views. Your open matches’ profiles may be viewed anonymously while your Incognito service is enabled. Incognito is not applicable to closed or terminated matches.
- Renewal. Your Incognito subscription will renew monthly at the rate disclosed during your initial purchase. Specific terms related to renewals may be reviewed in the main Agreement.
