Your agreement is with Vipzy Ltd (each, “Vipzy” or “we”).

This “Agreement” includes this User Agreement and the Privacy Policy, and other terms that will be displayed to you at the time you first use certain features (such as starting a profile page or purchasing advertisements), as may be amended by Vipzy from time to time. If you do not agree to this Agreement, do NOT click “Sign Up” (or similar) and do not access or otherwise use any of our Services.

1. Your purchase may be subject to foreign exchange fees or differences in prices based on location (e.g. exchange rates).

This Agreement (including additional terms that may be provided by us when you engage with a feature of the Services) is the only agreement between us regarding the Services and supersedes all prior agreements for the Services.

If we do not act to enforce a breach of this Agreement, that does not mean that Vipzy has waived its right to enforce this Agreement.
