At MeetGayCouples.com, We understand that your privacy is important to you; it's important to us also, and that is why we provide this statement about the personal information we collect, how we use that information and with whom it may be shared. You should not, and are not required to, disclose any information that you do not want made public.
Information We Collect:
The only personal information that we collect is information you provide when completing your membership profile and updates. We use that information to build your online profile and personalize your experience at our website. Your profile will only display such information about you as you choose to reveal. If you send us correspondence, such as emails or letters, we may collect such information into a file, which is only accessed by us or authorized law enforcement officials on demand.
In the course of creating and using your account, we may automatically track certain information such as your IP addresses, and monitor traffic patterns and related use of our Service to help us improve our web pages, site design, and member experience.
How we use and protect your Email Address:
We obtain your email address when you register your account, and send you an email link to activate your account and confirm ownership of that email address before allowing access to the secure areas of the site. We do this to protect our Service from abuse and to prevent unauthorized use of email addresses.
Your email address is known only to us, and is never revealed by us to other members or registered or non-registered users of this site. We make every effort to safeguard you from receiving unsolicited email or spam by safeguarding your email address.
This site sends email notifications when other registered members attempt to contact or interact with you -- such as, sending you a private message, posting a comment on your profile, or inviting you to be their friend. Our Service will send you an email notification, allowing you to login to the site to review the communication initiated by another registered user. Your email address is never revealed in any relays or communications between registered users.
By default, email notifications are turned "on." You may change which actions you wish to receive email notifications for, or optionally turn "off" all email notifications. If you do not wish to receive email notifications, please login to your account and click Account Settings from the main menu. Note: reporting email notifications as "spam" or "junk mail" to your internet service provider, in lieu of managing email notifications in your account panel, will result in account suspension or termination, and forfeiture of upgrade fees, if any.
In creating your account with our Service, you have established a business relationship with us, and acknowledge that you may, on occasion, receive email communication promoting the features and content of this, or our partner sites, GayConsumer.com and LGBTQNation.com. However, we will not sell or rent your email addresses to any third party without your permission.
You should understand that posting your email address in any visible area of our site, or in any messaging communication to other members, is strongly discouraged, as you are making it publicly available to others to send you unsolicited email.
Your IP Address:
Your IP address is commonly used by most websites to collect demographic data, track site usage and improve service. Whenever possible, we collect your IP address when you visit our site, the search criteria or referring website you visited prior, and information such as your operating system, browser, screen resolution settings, your internet service provider, your city (or country) of origin, pages viewed, and frequency and length of visits to our site. We automatically gather this information and translate the data into a resource that we can use to identify and correct problems with our website, better understand our users and their preferences for different offerings on our site, and to continually update and expand our service.
Discussion Threads, Public Comments, Group Chat, Instant and Private Messenger:
If you use a group discussion thread, post a public comment, send a private message, or participate in any live interaction such as in a group chat room or our instant messenger, you should be aware that any Personal Information you submit there can be read, collected or used by other users of these forums, and could be used to send you unsolicited messages.
We are not responsible for the Personal Information you choose to submit in these forums. It is important for you to exercise discretion and appropriate caution when deciding, if at all, to reveal Personal Information in these areas. Users who violate Community Standards, our Terms of Service, or any other policy may be temporarily or permanently banned from accessing this website at any time, according to our sole discretion.
Third Party Collections of Information:
MeetGayCouples.com has no control over any persons, third party web sites, links or email addresses posted to this website. We do not screen landing pages of external links, and assume no responsibility for any web navigation, including links to members' personal websites or blogs, or textual or banner advertisements, that takes you off this site, and that is not under our control.
MeetGayCouples.com disclaims all liability, regardless of the form of action, for the acts or omissions or claims of other members or users (including unauthorized users, or "hackers") of our site or services.
Transfer of Ownership:
We reserve the right to transfer ownership of all private and non-private information collected from the use of this website to parties who purchase an interest, partnership or ownership of this Service.
