California residents, please also see the "Note to California Residents" in Section 11 for additional rights that apply to you.
1. Information We Collect
A. Personally Identifiable Information
The information that we collect is generally limited to personal information about you that you submit on the Website. We collect personally identifiable information in order to better serve our customers. The personally identifiable information that may be collected includes: your name; address; email address; telephone number; information about your interests in and use of various products, programs, and services; education level and interests.
It is our goal to get you to the right place to help you achieve your matchmaking goals. Be assured that we respect your privacy and are not going to share your data with companies that will bombard you with unwanted messages. By entering and submitting your information to us via the Website, you give your express consent for us to share your data with the specific individual that we believe will best provide services to meet your needs.
You may choose not to provide any personally identifiable information that we ask for. However, we only ask for as much personally identifiable information as is necessary to complete the activity that you are requesting. As such, if you choose not to provide the personally identifiable information that we ask for, it is possible that you may not be able to participate in that activity or the full functions of this Website.
If you have questions about the use of personal information that you have provided to Us, please contact us using the information below in the Contacting Us section.
You may also have other rights under applicable federal, state, or local laws.
B. Non-Personally Identifiable Information
We also may collect various types of non-personally identifiable information to help us make your experience more enjoyable, measure site activity to identify future improvements that should be made, and compile aggregate data to help serve site visitors better.
Like most standard website servers, we use log files. Log files track anonymous user information including, but not limited to, Internet Protocol ("IP") addresses, browser type, Internet Service Provider ("ISP"), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, and number of clicks. This information is tracked in order to analyze trends, administer the Website, track users' movements in the aggregate and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. The information tracked via log files is not linked to personally identifiable information.
We also may use session logs, web beacons, GIF/pixel tags, banner ads, third-party click tracking analytics tools (such as Google Analytics), third-party retargeting networks that may display our advertisements to you on other sites that you visit to remind you about us, and third-party networks that serve user-requested emails (e.g., for a refer-a-friend email) to collect non-personally identifiable information or other aggregated information about site visitors.
The Website also may use session and persistent “cookies” to assign a unique identifier to your computer. This site will not function properly with cookies turned off. The cookies we use are persistent files that your web browser places on your computer's hard drive. Cookies may be used to help save information on past activities and other preferences, so that you are not required to reenter information each time that you visit the Website, and to deliver content specific to your interests. No personally identifiable information is gathered by the cookie.
Please note that you do have the option to configure most web browsers to NOT accept cookies. However, be aware that disabling cookies may keep you from having access to some functions or services on our web site or the web-hosted software that runs on our web site.
If you visit this site with an open ID (such as Facebook), you may also be sharing and integrating data with third-party social media sites, and we may track aggregate data about the number of visits to this site with an open ID, the number of items "liked" on this site, or items on this site that you choose to share with a third-party social media site.
Other parties such as third-party service providers, advertising partners, and analytics companies may also be collecting information about your online activity across various websites over time. The information collected by those third parties may include identifiers that allow those third parties to tailor the ads that they serve to your computer or other device.
Your web browser may let you choose your preference as to whether you want to allow websites to collect information over time about your online activities across different websites or online services. Because there is not yet a common understanding of how to interpret web browser-based "Do Not Track" signals other than cookies, we do not currently respond to "Do Not Track" signals. However, we do allow you to exercise some choice in the information collected by adjusting your browser’s cookie settings.
2. How We Use Your Information
Though we make every effort to preserve user privacy, we may be required to disclose personal information in some instances, such as: 1) when required by law wherein we have a good faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, and/or subpoena; 2) in the event that Company is sold or acquired; or 3) in the event that we believe that the Website is being, or has been, used in violation of our terms and conditions or to commit unlawful acts. Moreover, you hereby consent to the disclosure of any record or communication to any third party when Company, in its sole discretion, determines the disclosure to be appropriate in the circumstances.
