Terms & Conditions
Terms updated March 27th 2007
This website was created by Cecilia and Adam O'Toole (in this agreement they are known as "Twodoves"). It is an individual and unofficial initiative, and should not be considered an official Bahá'í website.
To be a member of Twodoves you must agree to the following conditions:
Behavior on the site
You will not use any language or images in your profile or correspondence with other members that transgress the ethical standards in the Bahá'í Faith.
Profiles will be rejected or deleted if they are not in keeping with this standard.
If you identify yourself as a Bahá'í you must be considered a "Bahá'í in good standing" by your local or national spiritual assembly.
If you are not a Bahá'í you agree to communicate in a manner which is not offensive to the beliefs of the Bahá'í members.
Any behavior at variance with Bahá'í principles such as misrepresentations of your identity or standing in the Bahá'í community, violations of the privacy of site participants, or efforts to foment contention, will constitute grounds for removal from the site.
You must be 18 years of age or over to join this site.
No Responsibility of Content
You acknowledge and understand that the content of the communication spread by the use of this website is entirely the responsibility of the person from whom such content originated. Twodoves will not be liable for any type of communication spread by means of the website.
By registering on this site, you represent and warrant that you are not married.
You will not include your email address or other contact information within the profile. Contact is made possible by way of a paid subscription or by the free tell a friend subscription.
Your account is for your sole, personal use, you may not authorize others to use your account, and you may not assign or otherwise transfer your account to any other person or entity. You cannot manage profiles on behalf of friends as we do not know that they have given you permission to do so.
One profile per person
You will only create one unique profile with this service, and the details should be accurate. You can be vague about where exactly you live, but do not lie about where you live.
Profiles are subject to the approval of Twodoves, and they reserve the right to decline profiles if they deem them to be inappropriate or which are suspected to be created by scam artists.
No guarantee of compatability
You understand that Twodoves makes no guarantees, either express or implied, regarding your ultimate compatibility with individuals you meet through this service.
Because this is promoted as a Bahá'í website some members may be lulled into a false sense of security and be less alert than they normally would. Be aware that there are people in the world that use the internet and especially dating websites to deceive, manipulate, and extort other people. These can be in the form of those asking for money, safe passage and asylum to another country, and those working for organized crime or scam businesses. When getting to know someone over the internet please take the necessary precautions to make sure you are not being fooled.
Contacting users without their permission
You will not contact members outside the website internal mail, by way of telephone/email/mail without their permission and without them volunteering this information to you. Gathering biographical information from someones profile to find their telephone number or other contact information transgresses their right to privacy and safety and will result in your expulsion from the site.
There is a possibility that other unauthorized users and/or "hackers" may post or transmit offensive or obscene materials on the service and that you may be involuntarily exposed to such offensive and obscene materials. There is also a possibility for others to obtain personal information about you due to your use of the service, and that the recipient may use such information to harass or injure you. Twodoves is not responsible for the use of any personal information that you disclose on the website. Please carefully select the type of information that you post on the website or release to others. Remember that if you enter your surname in your profile, it is possible for people to find and contact you (via telephone/mail) without your permission.
While Twodoves performs an initial screening of individuals registering for the service, Twodoves make no representations or warranties as to the conduct of such individuals, their Bahá'í status or their compatibility with any current or future Registered Users. In no event shall Twodoves be liable for any damages whatsoever, arising out of or relating to the conduct of you or anyone else in connection with the use of the service, including without limitation, death, bodily injury, emotional distress, and/or any other damages including financial resulting from communications or meetings with other registered users of this service or persons introduced to you by this service.
Complaints made against you
If a complaint is made against you by another member, we will write to you to ask for an explanation or to issue you with a warning. If we receive further complaints from the same or another member for recurring bad behavior/language you will be deleted from the site.
Being aware of the terms and conditions
Twodoves will notify by way of our news section, of any changes to our terms and conditions, and it is then the responsibility of each member to read the terms and conditions and decide whether they want to continue under these terms or not. If you do not agree to these terms you must immediately cancel your account. If your account remains active then you have by default agreed to the current terms and conditions.
Sept. 28, 2021 Notice Maintenance window every Tuesday from UCT-08:00 to 10:00.
