Ditch or Date speed dating events are held to help introduce single people in an informal atmosphere. We do not guarantee that participants in an event will make a match or that any match made will result in any further contact. We are not a matchmaking agency and we do not verify any personal information supplied by participants. We therefore recommend you treat any approach from people met through a Ditch or Date event, with caution and you satisfy yourself any information given is genuine, as you would any new contact.
When registered for an event it is only possible to change to another event or to obtain a refund if we are provided with 7 days notice of your intentions, and then it is at the discretion of management. Due to the nature of speed dating events it is necessary to ensure the correct number and gender of participants. An administration charge of £5 per person will be applied to any refunds.If you chose not to participate on the night of an event then Ditch or Date cannot offer any refund or event change due to non participation. All refunds come from Ditch or Date and are not authorised by our hosts running the events.

Any person registered for an event where the date has been rearranged will be entitled to a full refund of the registration fee as long as Ditch or Date have been notified of non-participation at least 3 days before the rescheduled event. In the case of a sudden change of venue it will not always be possible to secure our usual VIP / private area but we will try our very best.No refund will be elligble if the date remains the same but the venue changes.If an event is postponed due to a situation out of our control that would effect overall health or safety of individuals then Ditch or Date will offer another event to each client instead of a refund.

Please note that your match selections are entered into our system by the event facilitator after the event. We are aware how important it is that participants' privacy is respected and that their contact information remains confidential. All Ditch or Date hosts are under instructions to double check all match data before completing the data entry process, and are aware that entering match data incorrectly is cause for instant dismissal. However, very rarely it is possible that a mistake is made when entering match data. This can either be due to the participant's intentions being difficult to discern due to illegible handwriting on the match card, or simple human error. It is therefore a condition of attending a Ditch or Date event that you agree to hold Ditch or Date harmless in the unlikely event that your contact information is passed to a person you did not select at an event.
