Use of the Services
Use of the Services is entirely voluntary and under the sole and exclusive responsibility of the User, provided the User do not violate intellectual property or damage the Services offered. The App can be downloaded for free from the App Store. You can also browse the Website for no charge and without registration. To use the Services in the App, You need to register and to purchase a subscription.
Breakfast Subscription
When subscribed, the User gets the opportunity to use all the Breakfast features, such as announce a breakfast, browse other people’s announcements, arrange time and place, go and have breakfast with another human. If You have any questions or You would like to give some feedback on subscription plans, please email Us at support@thebreakfast.app.

We offer monthly, 6-month and annual paid subscription plans. You can choose subscription plan at registration. Each plan comes with a 7-day free trial period for new accounts. At the end of your free trial period, you will be billed for your chosen subscription plan.

Please note that when you purchase a subscription through the Apple iTunes Store or our iPhone application, the sale is final, and we will not provide a refund. Your purchase will be subject to Apple’s applicable payment policy, which also may not provide for refunds. You cannot change Your subscription plan until the current one is over. Your subscription plan can be changed at the end of current billing period. When User enters an invitation code and starts the registration process, the Service informs the User about the current cities where Breakfast is launched. It is fully and solely the User’s responsibility to decide whether the User wants to proceed with the payment regardless of whether Breakfast is launched in the User’s current city or not.

Our mission is to make Breakfast a global community of open-minded and driven people to share experiences, ideas and emotions. We are steadily launching new cities, but there might be a case when You travel to a new city where We are not launched yet. This is not a reason to get upset and ask for a refund of paid subscription. This is a reason to give Us some support and let Us know that You are looking forward to have Breakfast in that city. This feedback will help Us prioritize cities in the launching soon list.

If You have any questions regarding subscription plan, please do not hesitate to contact Us via email to support@thebreakfast.app.
Payments
If You decide to subscribe, You have to follow the payment obligation rules: the payment to be done each 1/6 or 12 month, depending on Your subscription plan. You can cancel it anytime, before prolongation of the subscription for new period. All payments will be charged to Your iTunes account, Breakfast do not personally process payments.

For Your convenience, subscription automatically renews unless auto-renewal function is turned off at least 24 (twenty four) hours before the end of the current period. Your account will be charged for renewal within 24 (twenty four) hours prior to the end of the current period. You can manage Your subscription and switch off auto-renewal by accessing Your iTunes and App Store Account Setting after purchase and cancel auto-renewal anytime.

If the User decides to leave from the App at his own request, We do not refund the subscription funds. If the User was deleted by the Service due to a violation of the Terms, Breakfast also does not refund subscription payment.

If Your bank details have changed, You must update billing information in Your account so We can renew Your subscription in due time.
Users Registration
We always ask You to provide actual and true information about You when You register, thus You and Your Breakfast companion will have an inspiring conversation, not a frustrating one. To register in the App, You have to provide the following data:

— Your first and last name;
— Your location, mainly city;
— Link to Your social profile (Facebook, Instagram, blog or Website) just to make sure You are a real person;
— Your photo;
— Reason You want to meet new people (You can choose one of the options or write Your own);
— Specify languages You are fluent in;
— Your email address;
— Your intro (personal introduction);
— Your worlds (basically Your main interests)

All the information must be truthful, accurate, updated and complete. For this purpose, each User guarantees the authenticity of all data provided when You create the account. If You have any questions on how We process Your Personal Data, please see the Privacy Policy.

This information is stored and protected by email and password, and access to Your account information always requires both Your email and password. If You provide any information that is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, or We have reasonable grounds to suspect provided data as such, We have the right to suspend or terminate Your account and restrict any and all current or future use of the Services. Breakfast reserves the right to disable any password at any time, if the User has failed to comply with any of the provisions of these Terms of Service.

If You register without invitation code, after filing the registration form, Your application gets to Our "Waiting List". The application then is being processed by the Service in order to assess whether You are a real person, who follows the philosophy of Breakfast — community of open-minded and driven people. We will notify You as soon as Your application gets confirmed. After confirmation You get an invitation code to get access to the App and choose the subscription plan. The code is valid only for 48 (forty eight) hours. Don’t fuck it up!

When You start using Breakfast You will be getting one invitation code after every 3rd breakfast. This way You can bring more like-minded people to Breakfast.

If You register with invitation code, this means that someone We already trust believes You are a part of Breakfast community. In this case, right after registration, You can choose subscription plan and make an announcement for Breakfast.
Have a Breakfast with Someone New
Breakfast is about having a real conversation. No endless texting and useless browsing. Arrange today, go and have a breakfast tomorrow.

To have a breakfast You simply make an announcement that includes Your preferable place, time and information about You. After You publish it, You will see announcements from other people nearby. You can tap "I'd love to join" when You feel like having a breakfast with that person. It is totally fine if You would like to join several people, but as soon as You have Your first Breakfast mutual, You will both have 30 minutes each to finally confirm Your breakfast.

Don’t be afraid to miss out on someone as every breakfast experience is unique. Just like every human is.

For Your convenience, Breakfast chat with Your Breakfast companion will be available one hour before the breakfast.
Feedback after Meeting

We care a lot about Our Users and We are constantly developing and improving the Services. Therefore, Your feedback is very important for Us. We process Your impressions on the breakfast and Your Breakfast companion in order to become better and more useful for You.

After the meeting, We will ask You a few questions that can be answered with a scale marked with extreme values from "Not at all" to "Absolutely".

We will write Your answer to the special criterion "Breakfast feedback". Do not worry, reviews are anonymous.

Feedback questions:

  3. Are You feeling inspired after the conversation? (criterion "Inspiration");
