We gather four types of information: public, private, communicative, and automatic.
Public information will include that information available for registered members to view, or demographic information. This includes your demographic information such as gender, user name, age, birth date, purchase history information, browsing history information, appearance, religion, occupation, zip code and geographical location.
Your demographic information is used to: personalize your experience; allow other members to find you through a search result and to communicate with you; compose your personal profile, which is associated with an identity you have created; and to deliver targeted advertising and promotional offers to you if you choose to receive them.
Private information is information that can personally identify you such as your real name, email address or credit card number.
When you register to use any Site service, you will be asked for some general identifying information to enable us to provide you with this individualized service. We gather contact information (such as your email address) and, if you choose to purchase a subscription, credits or other services, financial information (such as your credit card number and expiry date). Credit card transactions may be processed by the Site via its third party intermediary/financial institution, or by a professional payment authorization service chosen for security and reliability. In either case, only the purchase price and the credit card information provided by the customer will be supplied, and such information will be maintained in their database for accounting and billing purposes. However, information from these transactions is not released to other third parties. This information is encrypted via a secure server to ensure that others cannot read it. Once on the secure server your credit card information is sent to a third party intermediary for processing. You will know you are in secure mode when the tiny padlock icon - located at the bottom right of your browser - appears "locked". We will only use this information in the course of providing our service to you. Except as permitted herein, the specific information we collect is not rented, sold, or shared with any third party, except to the third party intermediary that processes your transaction or where required by law.
Communicative information is exclusive between the parties involved in some form of communication through the Site. Information such as your internal messaging conversations, instant messages, email messages to our service personnel, submission of answers to surveys, and participation in contests are considered communicative information.
We store your messages for the purpose of our anonymous internal messaging system. Just like email, messages must be stored somewhere in order to deliver them. We allow you to utilize our internal messaging system so that you may remain anonymous by not giving up your email address to other members. Our Messenger works much the same way.
We acquire information from our surveys so that we can better understand our members and continually improve our service.
Contest information (such as your contact information) is collected so that we may contact our contestants with information regarding the contest. Except as permitted herein, the specific information we collect is not rented, sold, or shared with any third party without your explicit consent and is only ever disclosed in situations where required by law.
Automatic information is information that we collect that is not personally identifiable such as your IP address, site usage and purchase behavior, browser type, browser activity, and browser settings. None of this information discloses any of your personal information.
We use your IP and/or Mac address to avoid fraudulent registrations, and monitor site usage demographics and dynamics. Information that we may obtain regarding your browser and browser settings may be used to ensure that our site's technical features are available to you. Except as permitted herein, the specific information we collect is not rented, sold, or shared with any third party without your explicit consent and is only ever disclosed in situations where required by law.
As a member of the Site, you are also a member of the Relationship Exchange and therefore your profile is displayed on all Relationship Exchange websites. While data from all member sites is maintained in a common database, only the public information located in your profile will be shared throughout the Relationship Exchange. Private information such as your real name, email address or credit card number is never shared with other Relationship Exchange sites without your explicit consent. All member sites adhere to a consistent set of privacy policies and therefore follow the same principles outlined in this privacy.
To operate the Site, including processing your transactions and supporting your activities on the Site, we may share your personal information with our agents, representatives, contractors and service providers so they can provide us with support services such as authorization of credit card transactions, email origination, receipt or support services, customer relationship management services, order fulfillment and sweepstakes and promotional fulfillment. By purchasing, or registering or making reservations for, products or services offered or sponsored by third parties on the Site, or electing to receive communications (such as emails or magazine subscriptions) or electing to participate in contests, sweepstakes or other programs (such as discount or rewards programs), offered or sponsored by third parties on the Site, you consent to our providing your personal information to those third parties. Those third parties may use your personal information in accordance with their own privacy policies.

This includes but is not limited to the materials posted in the public areas as well as the contents of communications transmitted while engaging in chat, email, or other means of communication. We limit the access to your personal information to employees who we believe need to come into contact with that information to provide services to you or to do their jobs.
The Owner shall have the right to remove any material that violates, or is alleged to violate, the law or our terms of usage. Information may be released when we believe, in good faith, that such release is reasonably necessary to: (1) comply with applicable law or to assist governmental or legal requests; (2) operate the service properly or enforce or apply the terms of any of our user terms, conditions and agreements; or (3) protect the rights, property or safety of our users and/or any third parties.
We have several different safeguards to protect your information, which include physical, technical (such as firewalls and industry-standard SSL encryption to protect data transmissions), and procedural methods. All of these comply with federal regulations and responsible business practices.
To enhance your experience as a Site member, we send out match and message notifications, newsletters and site announcements, and from time to time third party offers from companies that we feel may have something that will benefit you. Our site provides you with the opportunity to opt-out of receiving different types of communications (except system communications, or communications required for account maintenance), and each email that we send out has a method for opting-out located at the bottom of the message.
You may choose to provide our Site with your email address, personal information, or any other information for the purposes of opting-out of receiving email solicitations in respect of the Site. In that event, you agree that we may use and disclose that information for this purpose, in such manner as we deem appropriate. Such use and disclosure shall be carried out in order to allow compliance with our internal and Site policies, and to take all steps we deem necessary in order to ensure compliance with the CAN-SPAM Act of 2003. As such, and without limiting the foregoing, email addresses or any other information you provide may be compiled into a suppression list or other database, and may be provided to third party publishers, advertisers or otherwise for the purposes of ensuring such third parties do not provide email solicitations in respect of the Site to opted out persons. However, the Site shall not be responsible for the consequences of any release, use or abuse of the information which has been provided to the third party in furtherance of the effecting the opt-out requests, whether such release, use or abuse by that third party was is in breach of any confidentiality agreements or otherwise.

Our advertising efforts are targeted towards Internet users who are at least 18 years of age. All technical aspects of our site have been programmed to ensure that the minimum age a user can enter is 18 years of age.

Some Co-Branded Pages may contain an action tag (also known as a beacon or a 1 pixel .gif file) that a third party may use to read cookies that it, or its clients, may have placed on your browser at other web sites before your visit to the Site. Further, such third parties may use the information collected through this technology to learn more about your visits to this Site and other websites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you. When we disclose your financial information or personal information to a Co-Branded Company, as described above, we may also disclose to that Co-Branded Company your demographic information, other than the content of one-on-one communications between you and other members.
By purchasing, or registering or making reservations for, products or services of third parties offered on the Site, or by participating in programs offered on the Site that are administered by third parties and that require you to submit financial information in order to use them, you also consent to our providing your financial information to those third parties. Additionally, if the page on which you submit information is a Co-Branded Page, or was accessed by clicking on a link on a Co-Branded Page, then we may share your financial information with the associated Co-Branded Company.

Additionally, you agree that we may use and disclose all such information so submitted to such third parties in the same manner in which we are entitled to use and disclose any other information that you submit to us.
