When you sign up to via the DateAlt website, we may ask for personal information about you. This can consist of information such as your name, e-mail address, postal address, telephone, mobile number, date of birth and photos. By entering your details in the fields requested, you enable DateAlt to provide you with the services. Usage information such as IP addresses and date and times may be collected as you use our services. This information may be used for usage analysis and validation of your account. We promise not to share this information with other parties. We promise not to sell your data to third parties or for marketing purposes.
DateAlt will use your personal information for a number of purposes including the following: for "service administration purposes", which means that DateAlt may contact you for reasons related to the service (e.g. to provide you with password reminders or to notify you that a particular service has been suspended for maintenance); to personalise your search results and those users searching for you – private information may be used to order the search results without being displayed to other uses; to use your photos for promotional purposes of the site - e.g. using your images on the homepage of the site.
Where DateAlt proposes using your personal information for any other uses we will ensure that we notify you first. You will also be given the opportunity to withhold or withdraw your consent for your use other than as listed above.
DateAlt won't provide third parties with your information without your consent. We have no plans to contact you for marketing purposes, or promote new services and will contact you if this policy changes. We will keep your information confidential except where disclosure is required or permitted by law (for example to government bodies and law enforcement agencies). Generally, we will only use your information within DateAlt. However, our services are hosted on servers which DateAlt do not own – we endeavour to use hosting suppliers which adhere to our privacy rules. These servers may be located in a location different to your own (for example UK users may have their data hosted on a server located in the US) though we aim to use UK based servers where possible.
If you post or send offensive, inappropriate or objectionable content anywhere on or to DateAlt.com, or otherwise engage in any disruptive behaviour on DateAlt.com, DateAlt may use your personal information to stop such behaviour.
DateAlt is aimed at users 18 or older. Sorry we can't accommodate younger users due to the prohibitive administrative costs in policing the site. DateAlt does not validate user information and therefore cannot be held responsibile for any inaccuracies in user information.
We will hold your personal information on our systems for as long as is necessary for the DateAlt service. In the case that you wish to cancel your registration as a DateAlt.com member, you may suspend the account where your information is retained or you may request full removal via e-mail to the address below and your personal information will be removed in line with the Data Protection Act 1998.
Under the Data Protection Act 1998 you have the right to request a copy of the personal information DateAlt holds about you and to have any inaccuracies corrected. (We charge £10 for information requests and will require you to prove your identity with 2 pieces of approved photographic identification.) We will use reasonable efforts to supply, correct or delete personal information about you on our files.
www.datealt.com is published in the UK by the DateAlt.com. For international users accessing the site from outside the UK, we aim, where possible, to provide you with the same rights as a UK user under England and Wales law.
All users should exercise caution when meeting strangers or users with additional personal information such as email addresses and phone numbers - always tell someone your plans and arrange dates in public locations.
