Effective Date: 12/28/2009
This statement discloses the information gathering process and the privacy and dissemination practices for this Web site. Our site is an Internet singles and friends portal designed to provide an easy way to meet other singles on the Internet. Members create a profile and are then paired with a number of other members based on their pre-selected dating criteria.
Our site is a membership-based service that allows only 18 year old members to join and create a dating singles member profile. However, any visitors may choose to browse the Site, search the profiles and/or view any articles. Registration form requires users to provide contact information such as an email address and demographic information (such as zip code, age, or income level). Our site contains links to other web sites and our site is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such sites.
Private, Public and Aggregate Information obtained by Our site
PRIVATE INFORMATION: is any information that allows others to contact a user other than through Our site or allows the collection of information about the user other than what is displayed on the site. Private information is gathered from members. This information includes, but is not limited to: email address, city, state, and zip code residence as well as country.
PUBLIC INFORMATION: is personal information that may be displayed on the site, such as gender, age and height. Public information is personal information such as gender, age, ethnic background, appearance, and more. This information is meant to be seen by members and visitors to the site but cannot be used to identify a specific member by name, address, or other profile information. Members can post images of themselves. Please note that images posted can be aggregated by Search Engines such as Yahoo!, Bing.com, Google and other types of directories and Search Engines. It is imperative to understand that any images posted to our site, along with member profile information, may be consumed by the Search Engines and delivered in their Search Engine Results Pages based on correlated searches by users of each respective engine or directory.
AGGREGATE: This is information we collect that is not personally identifiable, such as browser type and IP address. This information is gathered from all visitors to the site.
Use of Information Obtained by Our site
PRIVATE INFORMATION: We use email addresses submitted by members when forwarding anonymous emails. Responders' email addresses are not disclosed to the original sender nor is any other personally identifiable information. We may use a user's email or street address to send news regarding our site. We do not share our member emails with third party vendors.
Email and street addresses may also be used in private correspondence with the user for customer service issues. All other private information submitted by the user is confidential and will not be disclosed except as required by law or to protect members of Our site. All private information can be updated or deleted by the user at any time.
PUBLIC INFORMATION: Public information supplied by the user is intended to be viewed by registrants and subscribers to the site. This information is used by registrants and subscribers for searching and matching purposes. However, as stated in language above, Search Engines and Internet Directories may also consume member profile content from our web site and return them in their search engines results making our website content and member database in part or whole accessible globally via the internet. Additionally, member profiles that have been uploaded and viewable in our dating script part of our website may also be shown and promoted in other areas of our website. Those "other" areas of our website can be operationally defined as "Dating Related". Their entire website is devoted to dating related content. FROM THIS, IT SHOULD BE 100% CLEAR THAT CREATING A MEMBER PROFILE AT THE WEBSITE IS THE EQUIVALENT OF CREATING A PUBLIC PROFILE OF ALL OF THE INFORMATION YOU PROVIDED WITHIN YOUR MEMBER PROFILE. As such, we emphatically suggest NOT to upload ANY information about yourself that you do not desire to be made public. We never suggest using your real name in your profile.
AGGREGATE: We use your server, IP address, and browser-type related information in the general administration of our website. It is not personally identifiable information and is not released to any third parties (which we do not have at all).
Email-A-Friend: If you choose to use our referral service to tell a friend about our site, we will ask you for your friend's name and email address. We will automatically send your friend a one-time email inviting him or her to visit the site. Our site does not store this information.
Chat Rooms, Bulletin Boards, and Forums
Our site makes chat rooms available to its users. Please remember that any information that is disclosed in these areas becomes public information and you should exercise caution when deciding to disclose your personal information online.
Our site gives members an option for modifying or removing their information from our database. Your privacy is one of our highest priorities. The security of your personal information is important to us. We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
We reserve the right to disclose your personally identifiable information as required by law and when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights and/or comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served on our Web site.
