You must be over 18 years of age to use our service.
The service is for the personal use of individual members only and may not be used in connection with any business.
There are also a number of rules about what you cannot post on the site and what you may use the services for. These rules are set out in the Terms and are designed to help protect the safety and security of members and to ensure that everyone can enjoy the services. It is important that you abide by these rules.
Protecting Your Privacy
We take the protection of your privacy very seriously at all times.
Free and Paid Membership
You may sign up for the services for free or you may subscribe to the services as a paying member. A number of features of the services will however only be available to you when you are a paying member.
All paid packages, require a one off payment of £10.00 to activate the account. Once the activation fee is paid it becomes non-refundable under any circumstances.
This does not affect your right to cancel within the 14 days cooling off period, any refund will be prorated minus the one off activation fee and any cost incurred in returning any payment (usually card handling fees). Any refunds due will be actioned within 14 days of UK Malayalee Matrimony Ltd being officially notified. The cost of the different packages can be found on our membership page. The basic package which is free, limits the interaction of the user and as you move through the packages Bronze, Silver to Gold – subscribers will be offered greater interaction and accessibility on the website.
Please also note that we do not guarantee a minimum number of compatible matches as this is dependent on the number of subscribers at any given time and their interests. Please also see sections 5 and 6 below for further information.
Changes to these Terms and Conditions
We will not make any changes to these Terms and Conditions that might have a negative impact on the services or your enjoyment of them (including any price increases) unless we have first informed you in writing of the proposed changes and given you a reasonable opportunity to termination your contract with us prior to those changes coming into effect.
You may cancel or terminate your contract with us at any time as set out in Paragraph 6 of these Terms and Conditions although in some circumstances that termination will not take effect until your contract is due for renewal. Depending on when you cancel or terminate you may be entitled to a refund as set out in Paragraph 5 of the Terms.
When you take out a subscription, it will normally be set up to automatically renew on a regular basis. You can cancel these automatic renewals at any time before we take the next payment through our site or by contacting us.
Deleting or removing your profile
We will delete your profile at any time on request. The best way of doing this is through our site but alternatively you may contact our customer services team at email@example.com. We may retain certain parts of your information even after we have deleted your profile where that is necessary for law enforcement or fraud prevention reasons – for example where fraud is suspected and in order to process refunds. In these circumstances your details will not be accessible to other members.
Cancelling or terminating your contract with us does not automatically delete your profile although you will be prompted to do so during the cancellation or termination process. Deletion of your profile must be done separately through the site or by contacting us.
We hope that you will enjoy using our service. We have put in place measures to try to ensure that everyone on our site is genuine and not involved in fraudulent activities.

11. Proprietary Information
The service contains information that is proprietary to our partners, our members and us. You may not modify, post, distribute or reproduce in any way any copyrighted material, trademarks or other proprietary information without having first received the express written permission of the owner of such information.
The site and the service are provided on an "as-is" basis. We cannot guarantee and do not promise any specific results from use of the site and/or the service. We make no promises as to the quality or fitness for a particular purpose of the service except that we will operate the site with reasonable skill and care of an online service provider.
All other promises and other terms which might otherwise be implied by the law are hereby excluded. This does not affect your statutory rights.
We do not represent or endorse the accuracy or reliability of any advice, opinion, statement or other information displayed, uploaded or distributed through the service by us, or any member or any other person or entity.

We are not responsible for the conduct, whether online or offline of our members. Please use caution and common sense when using the site and the service.
Third party websites with links from the site have not been verified or reviewed by UK Malayalee Matrimony LTD and use and access of such third party websites is made at your own risk.
13. Limitation on liability
We are responsible to you for foreseeable loss and damage caused by us. If we fail to comply with these terms, we are responsible for loss or damage you suffer that is a foreseeable result of our breaking this contract or our failing to use reasonable care and skill, but we are not responsible for any loss or damage that is not foreseeable. Loss or damage is foreseeable if either it is obvious that it will happen or if, at the time the contract was made, both we and you knew it might happen, for example, if you discussed it with us during the sales process.
We do not exclude or limit in any way our liability to you where it would be unlawful to do so. This includes liability for death or personal injury caused by our negligence or the negligence of our employees, agents or subcontractors; for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation; for breach of your legal rights in relation to the services.
Unless it is caused by us and is reasonably foreseeable we will generally not be liable for:
- any incorrect or inaccurate information on the site and all interruptions to or delays in updating the service;
- the infringement by any person of any Intellectual Property Rights of any third party caused by their use of the site;
- any amount or kind of loss or damage due to viruses or other malicious software that may infect a user's computer equipment, software, data or other property caused by persons accessing, using or downloading the Site, or from transmissions via emails or attachments received from UK Malayalee Matrimony LTD.
These terms above shall not limit any rights you might have as a consumer that may not be excluded under applicable law nor shall it exclude or limit UK Malayalee Matrimony LTD’s liability for death or personal injury resulting from its negligence nor any fraudulent representation.
14. Modifications to these terms
Where the changes to our terms are minor and do not adversely affect your enjoyment of the services for example where we need to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements or where we need to implement minor technical adjustments then we will notify you that these changes are coming into effect.
Where the changes to our terms are more serious or might adversely affect your enjoyment of the services then we will give you notice of the change and give you a reasonable opportunity to terminate your contract with us before these changes come into effect. Examples of changes that might fall into this category include an increase to our prices or a material change in the services.
Where you exercise your right to terminate under this paragraph we will refund you an amount that is proportionate to the period of your contract that you have not used.
15. Claims that may involve us
In the event that you have any claim or action against any other member arising from that member's use of our site or the service, you agree to pursue such claim or action independently of and without any demands to us, and you release us from all claims, liability and damages, arising from or in any way connected to the claim or action.
In the event that a claim or action is brought against us from your activities or use of the site or the service, including any breach by you of these terms or any charges or complaints made by other parties against you, you agree to pay, hold harmless and defend us in the claim or action. You also agree to cooperate as fully as reasonably required in the defence of any claim and allow us to assume the exclusive defence and control of the matter at our discretion.
16. Resolving Disputes
We will try to solve any disagreements quickly and efficiently. Alternative dispute resolution is a process where an independent body considers the facts of a dispute and seeks to resolve it, without you having to go to court.
17. Other important terms
These terms are governed by English law.
If a court finds part of this contract illegal, the rest will continue in force. Each of the paragraphs of these terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.
Even if we delay in enforcing this contract, we can still enforce it later. If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these terms, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking this contract, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date. For example, if you miss a payment and we do not chase you but we continue to provide the services, we can still require you to make the payment at a later date.
The site and the service are intended for and directed at the UK and do not necessarily comply with the regulatory regime and local laws of any other countries.
