What information do we collect?
We collect information about you when you register on our site or when you submit a form on our website. The mandatory information we collect is:
Year of birth (we do not collect your full date of birth)
Partial address (we do not collect your street name or house number)
The activities you are interested in
How do we use your information?
We use your information to enable you to find people whose interests match your own, and who live in your area or the area that you are interested in. We use your email address to send you a notification email when another member contacts you, and to send you periodic emails to keep you informed of activities and developments that may be relevant to you.
What information can other users see about me?
Other people can only see your first name, sex, year of birth, partial address, the activities you are interested in and optional information about yourself such as comments. This should not be enough information to identify you or contact you in any way other than through the website. We do not display your surname, street address or email address. We are only displaying the minimum information that allows people to search for appropriate people in the relevant geographical area.
How do we protect your information?
We implement a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information when you enter, submit, or access your personal information. We keep your password safe both when transmitted over the internet and when stored in our database using modern hashing algorithms.
