Community Guidelines

Our Community Guidelines and Terms of Use are designed to ensure every user can enjoy The Round safely and responsibly.

We foster a community of honesty and respect for all, empowering women, men, and everyone in between to date successfully.

We value diversity, respect all beliefs and value all interests, as long as these beliefs and interests are not hateful, rude, abusive, bullying, misogynistic or misandristic towards others.

We believe that people deserve to be treated with kindness and respect, the way you'd treat someone who gives you time offline.

We expect you to uphold this behavior standard while on The Round.

Here are our guidelines for dating in our community:

We've designed these to ensure every user has a safe and enjoyable experience on The Round.

- Don't be rude, aggressive, or hateful.
- Put your best self forward.
- Show up on time, keep your word & don't flake.
- Don't be rude or aggressive.
- Be decent and respectful of your match's time.
- Treat people as you'd want to be treated.

Failing to act properly and following the guidelines could result in losing access to our platform, which would suck, so don't do it.

Profile photo guidelines

Our guidelines for profile photos are designed for your safety and success in mind - they're mostly common sense:

- Please don't use other people's photos or copyrighted photos - stealing isn't right and won't be tolerated.
- No photos of you in your underwear - save it for the bedroom.
- No shirtless/underwear mirror selfies - ask a friend to take a photo of you clothed rather than posting these.
- No photos with overlaid watermarks or text - this means you probably stole it, refer back to rule one.
- No graphic, violent or hunting photos with dead animals- we know we're from Texas but still, keep it off our app.
- No photos of kids, clothed or unclothed - feel free to mention you have one in your bio.
- Avoid using photos in bikinis/swimwear indoors; you're probably not showing up to a date in a bikini - save those photos for other apps.

Please follow our guidelines at the risk of losing your account. Any violation of these guidelines will result in a warning or the termination of your account at The Round team's discretion. These guidelines are in place to make The Round a safe dating community.

Additionally, we encourage you to report others who fail to follow these behavioral guidelines.

Safety guidelines

Our top priority is user safety. Matches made on our platform are guided to safe, public spaces to meet for the first time within 48 hours of matching.

We understand meeting someone online or through an acquaintance is intriguing and exciting, but can also be risky. With this in mind, your safety is very important to us. As you control your experience on The Round, there are certain safety steps to follow while planning and going on a date.

Please read the tips and information below. We strongly urge you to follow these guidelines in the interest of your personal safety and well-being. You are the best judge of your own safety, and these guidelines are not intended to be a substitute for your own judgement.

Protect your personal information

Never give out personal information, such as your social security number, credit card number, bank information, or your work or home address to people you don't know or haven't met in person.

The Round will never send you an email asking for your username and password information. Any such communication should be reported immediately.

Protect your finances & never send money or financial info

Never respond to any request to send money, especially overseas or via wire transfer, and report it to us immediately - even if the person claims to be in an emergency. Wiring money is like sending cash: the sender has no protections against loss and it's nearly impossible to reverse the transaction or trace the money.

Be safe and smart

Block and report suspicious or hostile users. You can block and report concerns about any user anonymously at any time on The Round; we will follow up on reported incidents.

Report any and all suspicious or hostile behavior

Examples of terms of use violations include:
    - Minors using the platform
    - Users behaving inappropriately after meeting in person
    - Fraudulent registration or profiles
    - Spam including suspicious generic messaging or links to unknown websites
    - Solicitation, such as invitations to call 1-800 numbers or attempts to sell products or services
Additionally, please report anyone who violates our Terms of Use.

Thank you for helping to keep our dating community safe; if you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to us at safe@jointheround.com.
