I understand that, though matching is based on interests, it cannot be guaranteed that my Global Friend(s) will match the above criteria. I understand that this program is solely for friendship and cultural exchange, and not to be used for other purposes such as dating or employment. I will respect the values, customs, and religions of all people.
