Our website: Access and use
Our website is a portal characterised as adult content with the intention of bringing users into contact with each other. We do not arrange meetings ourselves and cannot give any guarantees regarding the expectations and behaviour of our Users. We recommend that you always take the necessary precautions when having offline contact with other users.
Our website and services are intended for adults only. This means that you must have the minimum age required by your country’s law to use our website. For the Netherlands and Belgium this age is set at 18.
By using this website you declare your knowledge of and you agree with the legal part of our website being these General terms and conditions and the Privacy Statement.
You are a “User” in the sense of this User Agreement as soon as you visit our website and possibly make use of our services. If you use our paid services and this for purposes that are outside the business or professional activity you will become a “User-consumer”.
In order to use our advertising spaces it is necessary to create and register a user profile. This registration is done simply by filling in the online registration form. It is not allowed to register and use more than one user profile, even under a different name. Double user profiles are invariably removed.
When registering we ask you to provide a correct, truthful, current and complete picture. This means that at the start of the registration the User must make the choice relevant to him/her based on his/her capacity and the desired use he/she has for advertising.
It is absolutely forbidden to violate the rights of third parties in the registration process. The misappropriation of a name (article 231 of the Criminal Code), the falsification in informatics (article 210bis §1 of the Criminal Code), an assault on honour and reputation (article 443 and 453bis of the Criminal Code) and other forms of identity fraud are crimes punishable by criminal law. Presspink.com will take the necessary actions to ensure punishment.
The user profile is personal and the User is solely responsible for all actions taken with his/her user profile. Because of that a user profile cannot be transferred to a third party. In order to guarantee this the user is responsible for the confidential nature of his/her user profile. Any breach of confidentiality must be reported to PressPink.com so that necessary steps can be taken.
PressPink.com does not actively monitor the registration of profiles, but reserves the right to take appropriate measures in cases where this is required. This will be the case if the registered Visitor violates the General terms and conditions, applicable legal rules, rights of third parties or generally accepted rules of Internet conduct. Report violations on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Presspink.com retains a wide margin of discretion regarding the adoption of a sanctioning and remedial measure and the scope of that measure. This includes the temporary and/or permanent suspension as well as the removal of a user profile. Measures may be taken without prior warning and/or notification.
Information on the website
The content, information and advertising offered on our website may contain imperfections of all kinds. We offer this content without any form of guarantee, reliability and/or accuracy as well as the actual character of the content. This both with respect to our own content and the content of users and third parties, including advertisements.
It is not allowed to place the following content on the website in any case;
- Any form of content that may be considered inappropriate and/or unlawful. Although the boundaries of our website are somewhat wider than normal, this does not prevent content that is illegal, unlawful, harmful, misleading, threatening, insulting, excessively obscene, child pornography, offensive, racist and/or generally contrary to public order and good morals from being considered inappropriate. This content does not necessarily conflict with applicable law or the rights of third parties to be considered inappropriate.
- Content that violates the intellectual and portrait rights of other users and/or third parties.
- Content that is the result of, refers to and/or encourages the commission of facts that are punishable by criminal law.
- The distribution of content which may cause harm to other users of the website. This includes a ban on the distribution of harmful software such as computer viruses, malware, worms, trojans and cancelbots.
In addition to the General terms and conditions the following specific rules apply for the placement of all advertisements;
- Advertisements must always be placed in the relevant and appropriate section and under the category closest to the subject of the advertisement. The User’s choice is limited depending on his registration settings.
- Advertisements must always be placed in Dutch or in English.
- Advertisements shall not be misleading in any way.
Although we take all necessary actions to prevent this there is always a chance that content, information and advertisements are incorrect and/or even deceptive. So be a critical user at all times!
We make every effort to offer a high quality website, but this also requires the help of our visitors. We take all possible actions as soon as we become aware of a well-founded report of inappropriate and/or illegal content. Therefore, if you do not agree with the content, information or advertising on our website, please notify us at email@example.com.
The deletion of a user profile may imply the (future) deletion of all advertisements and content posted.
Registered users can place advertisements. Such advertisements are in principle free of charge, but the advertiser can increase his visibility by promoting advertisements.
The General terms and conditions and the characteristics of our services are as proposed on the website and as ordered by the User. Presspink.com may at any time adjust the General terms and conditions of its services in accordance with market demand and changing regulations. Advertisements are characterised by their limited duration and are published for a maximum of 3 months.
Advertisements contrary to these General terms and conditions of use may be removed at any time without prior warning and/or notice. The deletion of a user profile may also involve the deletion of posted ads. Finally the advertiser can also request the removal of one or more of his advertisements. In none of the previous cases is the advertiser entitled to get a refund.
Delivery and Payment Terms
As soon as we have received your order, you will receive an order confirmation via email. Link Media will provide the requested services after receipt of payment. Please note that the choice of certain means of payment has an effect on the immediate execution of the services.
As a buyer, you are obliged to immediately check the execution of our services for possible errors on our part. Defective performance of services must be reported by the User within 7 days after discovery of the defective delivery. This notification must always be made in writing to Presspink.com stating the reasons. The user shall only be entitled to the repair of defective services by means of execution.
All prices are expressed in EURO and include VAT and other taxes. Obvious and/or obvious errors in our price can also be corrected after the realization. Any additional costs, such as the use of certain payment methods, are always clearly communicated to the User in advance and are entirely at the User’s expense.
In the case of online orders, payment can be made using the valid and internationally accepted electronic payment methods. The terms and conditions of use of the selected provider will then also apply.
Right of withdrawal
As a User-consumer you do not have the right to cancel the purchase. The right of withdrawal therefore does not apply, since the service in question is one or other, or the placing of advertisements, is carried out immediately. By agreeing to these General terms and conditions, you, as a User-Consumer and so you declare that you are no longer entitled to the right of withdrawal as soon as Presspink.com has performed the agreement. The placement of the advertisement is carried out immediately and automatically after payment.
Restrictions on the right of use
The User can only visit and use our website in a way that is in accordance with these General terms and conditions and the applicable legislation. The following actions must therefore be considered to be prohibited;
- The user is prohibited from using software programs aimed at the collection and acquisition of data. This includes spiders, crawlers, robots and similar software.
- It is not allowed to use the website and its data for advertising, spamming, chain letters, junk mail and/or similar variants.
- It is not permitted to stalk and/or persuade other users of political and/or religious beliefs.

The above list is purely indicative and certainly not exhaustive. Presspink.com has a wide margin of discretion.
Intellectual property rights
Our website and the associated trademarks, images, logos, animations, texts, etc. are protected by intellectual property rights. This property belongs to Presspink.com. Presspink.com grants the User a limited, revocable and non-exclusive licence to visit the website and make personal use of it. With the exception of the above the User is not permitted to reproduce the website and/or all or part of the content, to inform the public and/or to carry out any distribution activities in this respect.
Every User who adds content to our website is responsible for the Intellectual Property Rights that are attached to it. The Visitor can not infringe the intellectual property rights of any other party in any way. By placing content on the website the User grants Presspink.com a perpetual, free, transferable licence to use, reproduce, process and communicate this content to third parties to the extent necessary to offer the services of our websites. This licence applies to all types of Intellectual Property Rights involved.
Violations of the conditions described herein, committed by the User, cannot under any circumstances be attributed to Presspink.com.

We again ask for your cooperation in reporting any violations of intellectual property to us so that we can take appropriate action. You can do this via firstname.lastname@example.org.
What to do with links?
Our website contains many references to other websites and/or electronic communication portals that are not under our actual control. Consequently we cannot give any guarantees with regard to these websites and/or electronic communication portals. These references are always at your own risk and responsibility to click and visit by the Visitor. The inclusion of such a reference does not automatically mean that we (implicitly) agree with the content of those websites.
If an advertisement is linked, it is required that the linked website contains interesting information and that the content is linked to the content of the advertisement. This link shall not contain any advertising linked to profile websites of third parties. Accounts of profile websites do not count as own websites.
It is permitted to create links to our websites but only if these hyperlinks lead to the homepage of the website. Other ways of linking, such as deep-linking, in-line linking, framing, etc. are not permitted without the prior written consent of Presspink.com.
In case of violation of the above conditions, Link Media always has the right to remove websites/links without prior warning and without this giving rise to any form of compensation. We use a wide margin of discretion in assessing these links.
Our legal obligations and liability
The User understands and accepts the following;
Our website and the associated services are offered on an ‘as is’ and ‘as available’ basis, i.e. without any implicit or explicit guarantee. Every use is at your own risk.
However the user can rest assured that we have taken all necessary and reasonable measures to ensure the proper functioning, reliability, safety, continuity and accessibility of our website and services. These include measures of a technical, non-technical and organisational nature. The commitment we make to this end is an obligation to use our best endeavours.
Presspink.com is only liable for any serious or repeated light contractual and/or non-contractual failure attributable to Link Media in the performance of its obligations under this agreement. This liability is limited to the direct damage resulting from the shortcomings and can never exceed the value of the services performed, with an absolute maximum of €30.
Presspink.com is in no way liable for any form of indirect damage as a result of its shortcomings. Indirect damage includes in any case any form of consequential damage, loss of profits, financial or commercial losses, increase in general costs, increased personnel costs, damage due to loss of clients and/or possibilities, emotional damage. This list is purely indicative and certainly not exhaustive.
Presspink.com does not exclude its liability in the event of fraud or intent, provided that this is attributable to Link Media. Liability for bodily injury and death is excluded to the extent legally possible.
If the User jeopardises Presspink.com’s liability due to a contractual or extra-contractual shortcoming, the User must take all necessary measures to indemnify Presspink.com against any possible damage it may suffer as a result.
The liability of Presspink.com can never be compromised as a result of the cases of force majeure. Force majeure is understood to mean any sudden, unforeseeable event, regardless of the will of the parties, which makes the performance of Presspink.com’s obligations impossible. Link Media is hereby entitled to suspend its obligations towards the Visitors for the duration of the force majeure.
Specific ICT defects may also fall under the definition of force majeure, such as server defects, insufficient communication infrastructure, insufficient software and hardware of the customer. This list is purely indicative and certainly not exhaustive.
Our website and services may be modified, suspended or even discontinued at any time without giving rise to any form of compensation. If an appeal to this clause has a negative effect on the further performance of our paid services, you as an advertiser have the right to cancel this service and, in proportion to the services already performed, to request a refund. The advertiser can only invoke these rights if he informs us of this in writing within 14 days after the change of service.
These General terms and conditions (including the Terms and Conditions of Sale) shall be governed and interpreted exclusively in accordance with Bulgarian Law. Disputes shall be subject to the jurisdiction of the courts of the district of Sofia.
If the operation or validity of one or more of the above provisions of these General terms and conditions is compromised, this shall not affect the validity of the remaining provisions of this agreement.
Any disclaimer of liability by Presspink.com must always be interpreted in the broadest sense.
The titles we use in our legal documents are always purely illustrative. So you can’t derive any legal value from it.
