Terms of Service
Last updated: 30 April 2018
Please note that we have made revisions to the Terms of Service and Conditions (TOS). The new TOS will apply until 24 May 2018 (inclusive) and, as from 25 May 2018 when the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into force. By continuing to use our services you agree to the new below TOS.
pto-services, part of GBSERVICE BILLING LIMITED ("us", "we", or "our") operates this website. Our website (the site) is a social network and dating site for kinksters - gay, bisexual and post-op transsexual men over the age of 18 curious about exploring their sexuality. By using the site you agree to be bound by these TOS. Because these TOS contain legal obligations, please read them carefully.
The site or part of the site may be translated in other languages (e.g. German, French), but the official language for scatboi.com is English, so this is the relevant version of the scatboi.com TOS.
- 1. Acceptance of Terms of Service and Conditions (TOS)
- 1.1 By clicking "Accept" to register or accept revisions to these TOS you will be deemed to have consented to these TOS. You also agree that you have understood that the content of our site may contain adult material.

- 2. Description of Membership
- scatboi.com is a site for gay and bisexual men. This is a protected characteristic and under European Law we are permitted to exclude anyone who does not fit into this group. As gender identity continues to evolve, we find we must define what we mean by ‘men’. We use the following definition: An adult human being with no vagina. It is unfortunate that we must draw a line somewhere and this is always a difficult conversation where some people lose out, but we need to operate to a definition that provides absolute clarity.
- 2.1 As a member, you can take advantage of all services relevant to your level of membership on the site for free. We reserve the right to charge for access to part or this entire site at any time, in line with your level of membership. We reserve the right to change which parts of the site incur a charge to access, or which parts of the are available in relation to your level of membership. We reserve the right to change the sum charged for access to some or all of the site. Should such a change come into place a prominent notice on our website at least 2 weeks before any charges come into place.
- 3. Age of Consent
- 3.1 Due to the nature of our site we do not allow anyone under the age of 18 years. No minors are allowed on the site. You must be 18 years or over to register as a member.
- 3.2 If we discover or have any reason to suspect that you are not over 18 years of age, then we reserve our right to suspend or terminate your membership to our website immediately, without notice and without refunds.
- 3.3 We also reserve the right to require you to provide proof of age, and to block/suspend your profile until you have provided this proof. Failure to provide proof of age within a specified timescale may result in termination of your membership and deletion of your profile.
- 4. Password, member name and security
- 4.1 Upon registration as a member, you will select a password and member name that you can use to access your member account and profile and to log on to the members' area of that site. Member names must be unique and we accept no liability if your member name of choice has already been adopted by another user. Your choice of member name must comply with paragraph 6 and we reserve the right to remove any accounts with member names that we believe may cause other users offence, or which appear, in our judgement, to imply that the account may be used for commercial purposes or any purpose which would imply a contravention of these TOS. We reserve the right to reject member names that contain non-alpha-numeric characters, emojis, or characters for which our database is not configured.
- 4.2 You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password as associated with your member name and are responsible for all activities that occur under it. We do not have the means to cross-check the identity of people using the members' area of the site and will not be liable where your password or member name are used by someone else.
- 4.3 You agree to notify us immediately of any unauthorized use of your password or member name or any other breach of security of which you become aware. This includes circumstances where the data security of your computer may have been breached and your personal information and passwords stolen, cloned or otherwise maliciously obtained by any third party.
- 5. Your warranties
- 5.1 You warrant that:
- 5.1.1 You are over 18 years of age. In general, the use of words and/or terms such as "boy", "teen", "teen boy", etc., are intended for purposes of identifying gender ONLY and are not meant to imply that the person in question is below legal age. (You agree that if we feel that the use of such terms is ambiguous and may be read to mean someone actually under the legal age of consent you will, upon request, delete, clarify and/or correct the term.
- 5.1.3 You will comply with these TOS including, without limitation, the restrictions relating to acceptable use set out at paragraph 6 below.
- 5.2You agree to indemnify and hold us harmless from any claim or damages (including any legal fees in relation to same) made by a third party in respect of any matter in relation to or arising from your use and Membership arising from any breach or suspected breach of these TOS by you or your violation of any law or the rights of any third party.
- 5.3 Profile, Discussions, Personal Ads, Classified Ads, Stories, Events, Banner Ads, picture approval, verification etc. may take any unspecified amount of time to be completed. You agree to indemnify and hold us harmless from any claim or damages (including any legal fees in relation to same) made by yourself or a third party in respect of any matter in relation to or arising from any delay in information or images being made visible (live) on the website we are operating.
- 6. Acceptable use
- 6.1 We support the free flow of information and ideas over the Internet and do not actively monitor private conversations, including the members' area under normal circumstances. We seek to balance this aim with our obligations to other members and the law however. We do therefore review all profiles, and profile updates entered onto the site by members, check messages where certain keywords are triggered and log chatroom exchanges in order to ensure compliance with these TOS, and to comply with or investigate any enforcement agency or police request or complaints. We abide by a ZERO TOLERANCE policy relating to any illegal content. Child Pornography, bestiality, rape, torture, snuff, death and/or any other type of obscene and/or illegal material shall not be tolerated by us. Simulations of illegal activities where one might reasonably be lead to believe that the actual (not simulated) activite came to pass, are treated as if they record actual events rather than simulations. For example, a photo of a simulated murder may be treated as if it were a photo of an actual murder, if we deem it likely that a casual observer may be lead to believe they are seeing a record of an actual murder. We therefore require that you do not:
- 6.1.1 say or do anything that would cause annoyance, inconvenience, harassment or needless anxiety to others.
- 6.1.2 advertise or promote third party or your own products or services including by way of the distribution of 'spam' mail, unless via a pre-approved Classified Ads or Banner Ads (see paragraph 15).
For avoidance of doubt, it is prohibited to use the site for any commercial purposes, including selling of items, promoting third parties who provide services or goods, or promoting/selling your own services, including Escort work and prostitution.
For avoidance of doubt, we place a very clear differentiation between Escort work (spending time with someone for money) and prostitution (charging for sexual services).
This prohibition applies equally for profile text, messages, chat content and postings in discussion groups or as Personal Ads, with the only exceptions of pre-approved Classified Ads or Banner Ads (see paragraph 15).
Profiles may not contain Escort nor prostitution related text or have a member name that implies Escorting/Rent. Where profiles exist that breach this term, the user will be contacted and will be asked to create a new profile with a different user name or we will change his user name.
Examples of profiles deemed to be inappropriate would include the text "$", "€", "£", "Escort", "Rent", "Cash" etc. This is intended to prevent members using profiles to solicit Escort work or prostitution. All such decisions are at the discretion of the site Admins and are final.
- 6.1.3 use foul, threatening or offensive language including, without limitation, racist, sexist, ageist, religious, homophobic or inappropriate sexually explicit language where inappropriate. For example, we will not allow the use of the term "Nigger" (and similar derivations) unless used as a manner of describing oneself or one's partners in a positive way or when clearly associated with positive race play, or when used in a way deemed by our Admin team to not have the intention of causing offence or as a derogatory description of another.
- 6.1.4 make insulting remarks to or about other members or the Admin team ("flaming").
- 6.1.5 jump in and out of site forum rooms ("frogging"), especially with the sole purpose of jumping your name to the top of the list of contributors.
- 6.1.6 distribute illegal, copyright infringing, indecent or offensive material or any messages or content that may incite disorder or encourage illegal activities. We reserve the right to edit or remove any content which we feel may result in illegal or inappropriate content being posted as a response.
- 6.1.7 impersonate another person or member – this includes uploading their photo and claiming it to be your own or accessing the site with another user’s account details.
- 6.1.8 transfer files that contain viruses, trojans or other harmful programs.
- 6.1.9 use the sites to conduct any fraudulent activity including blackmail, any "pyramid scheme"; "ponzi scheme" or "chain letter", or use the site for any ‘scam’, where a user is directed to another site where they are then defrauded.
- 6.1.10 access or attempt to access the accounts of other members or to penetrate or attempt to penetrate the sites security measures.
- 6.1.11 have more than one member account at any time per site we are operating.
- 6.1.12 repeatedly post the same (or very similar) topic, text or content as a discussion, bulk mail or personal ad.
- 6.1.13 re-post comments to discussions with the aim of ‘bumping’ the topic back into the list of most popular discussions.
- 6.1.14 provide access to the site or any of its contents to minors.
- 6.1.15 discuss this site or any of its contents with any representative of the media, or provide access to the site or any of its contents to any non-member or representative of the media. For the benefit of doubt, ‘media’, is taken to mean television, radio, video production, magazines, newspapers (or similar printed or online publications), other websites, either amateur or professional. This includes reposting images or other content on other sites (such as Instagram or tumblr).
- 6.1.16 upload images showing weapons (eg firearms, swords etc).
- 6.1.17 upload any images/content of drugs or drug use (or that suggest drug use) as we cannot permit direct mention of illegal substances or activities.
- 6.1.18 upload any images/content with references to National Socialism (Nazi/SS) or the white supremacist movement.
- 6.1.19 upload any images/content of real or simulated incest, blood, rape, bestiality, dead bodies or underage sex.
For clarification, we define ‘underage’ as being or appearing to be younger than 18 years of age. We reserve the right to remove any content that we believe includes underage sex, or bestiality, and to contact the authorities in respect of such. For further avoidance of doubt, we reserve the right to remove such photos if they look like they are depicting rape, murder, extreme physical harm, torture, bestiality or underage sex, so if a photo includes someone who looks like they are under 18 years old, we will remove that image.
- 6.1.20 publish your telephone/mobile number or address (beyond the basic geographic data required of every user) on the site. Your telephone/mobile number can be published in a paid-for profile in your contact details. Publishing of your contact details is at your own risk and we accept no liability for any nuisance calls you may receive as a result.
- 6.2 We may take any or all of the following action at our discretion:
- 6.2.1 request a verification picture from a member to validate his account and be sure that he is one of the genuine people who want to use our site in accordance with our rules.
- 6.2.2 remove any member profile (including photographs) or other material that, in our sole discretion may be inappropriate or we suspect to be illegal, subject us to liability or which may violate these TOS or where required to do so by law.
- 6.2.3 issue members with verbal or written warnings and may take such further action as we deem appropriate under this paragraph 6.2 if such warnings are not heeded.
- 6.2.4 suspend or terminate a member's access to the members' area of the site or a member's account without notice at any time.
- 6.2.5 inform the appropriate authorities and provide them with information regarding any suspected illegal activity.
- 6.2.6 bring legal action against a member or other user of the Site in relation to any breach of these TOS or any illegal or suspected illegal activity.
We will determine what action is appropriate to be taken against a member on a case by case basis.

For the avoidance of doubt, do not pay for membership of this site then a few days later decide to try to claim that payment back as a fraudulent charge to your account.
