Children under eighteen years of age are prohibited from using our Website or services. We ask that children not submit information to us and we do not knowingly collect personal information from persons under the age of 21.
During the registration process you may choose to provide us with certain “Personal Information” including:
- your name and email address
- billing information
- “Sensitive Personal Information”, which includes your racial or ethnic origins, political or religious beliefs, or sexuality
When we refer to “Personal Information” in this Policy, unless we say otherwise, this includes “Sensitive Personal Information.”
We may collect information about your activities or postings on our Website when you choose to send us personal correspondence such as emails or letters or when other Website users or third parties send us correspondence, which may include their comments about you. All this information will be kept in a file that is accessed only by authorized Simply The Best Singles personnel.
Providing your Personal Information to us is voluntary, however, if you do not provide your Personal Information to us, you will not be able to access some or all of our services. When you provide Personal Information to us, we will use it to contact you about our services, to process payment for our services, and to tailor our services to meet your preferences.
We use your Personal Information for many specific purposes, including:
- emailing you with news and updates about our services
- improving and customizing our content and product offerings
- analyzing your Website usage and delivering information (such as banners and promotions) targeted to your interests
If you have provided us with certain Personal Information, we will also use it to facilitate your communication with other members, for example, by the use of “custom matches.” We may also use your Personal Information to resolve disputes, troubleshoot problems, enforce agreements, policies and rules governing the use of SimplyTheBestSingles.com.
Due to the nature of many of the services provided by SimplyTheBestSingles.com, certain of your Personal Information will be disclosed to other Members. As an example, if you complete a “dating” profile and choose to disclose your religious affiliation or ethnic origin, this information will be available to other Members. By providing this type of profile information to us, you have consented to the use and disclosure of your Personal Information in this manner.
We also disclose Personal Information to our service providers (for example, credit card processing companies and billing services) as reasonably necessary or appropriate to provide services. Simply The Best Singles uses PayPal that is the faster, safer way to pay. The service allows people to send money without sharing financial information, with the flexibility to pay using their account balances, bank accounts, credit cards or promotional financing. PayPal is an eBay (Nasdaq:EBAY) company and is made up of three leading online payment services: the PayPal global payment service, the Payflow Gateway and Bill Me Later. PayPal will not disclose your credit card number or bank account number to anyone you have paid or who has paid you through PayPal or with the third parties that offer or use the PayPal Services, except with your express permission or if they are required to do so to comply with credit card rules, subpoena or other legal process.
We may be required to disclose your Personal Information in order to comply with a court order, subpoena, search warrant, or as otherwise compelled by law. In addition, we expressly reserve the right to disclose your Personal Information when we have a good faith belief that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights, to enforce our agreements, policies, and rules governing your use of SimplyTheBestSingles.com, to cooperate with law enforcement, and/or to report information concerning a threat of serious injury or death.
This Policy only addresses the use and disclosure of Personal Information that we collect from you. To the extent that you disclose your Personal Information to others while using our website, different rules may apply to its use, maintenance, or disclosure. We do not control the privacy policies of third parties, and you are subject to the privacy policies or practices of those third parties.
You may not use another Members’ information, whether private or not, for commercial purposes, to spam, to harass, or to make unlawful threats. We reserve the right to terminate those who misuse other SimplyTheBestSingles.com’ Members’ information or who otherwise violate any user agreements, policies, or rules governing the use of our Website.
Please DO NOT post, share or disclose in public forums (e.g., chat rooms, blogs) any Personal Information that you do not wish other Members to know. We encourage you to ask questions before you disclose your Personal Information to others. Similarly, you should never disclose or share your password with anyone else. If you lose control of your password, you may lose substantial control over your Personal Information and may be subject to legally binding actions taken on your behalf. If your password has been compromised for any reason, you should immediately change your password and/or contact us at our Customer Service Department.
Simply The Best Singles uses reasonable security measures to help protect and prevent the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under our control. We use industry standard efforts, such as firewalls, to safeguard your Personal Information. While “perfect security” does not exist on the Internet, or elsewhere, our technical staff works hard to help ensure your secure use of our services.
Once you register on SimplyTheBestSingles.com, you will be able to review and change much of your Personal Information including:
