As part of the normal operation of our international online dating service we collect and, in some cases, may disclose information about you.
1. Information We Collect
We collect personal information that can identify you such as your name, surname and email address and other information that does not identify you. Information you provide through our site is sent to servers located in the United States and other countries around the world.
Your surname, email address, postal address and telephone number are confidential and will not be posted in your profile. Your profile is available for members and visitors to view. Member profiles include a description, photos and other information helpful in assessing potential matches. Your viewable profile does not include any personally identifiable information; it includes only your first name, age and the username you chose when you registered.
2. Use of Your Information
We use information about you from the files and databases we maintain and other information we obtain from your current and past activities on our site to:
- Deliver the services you have requested;
- Manage your account and provide customer support;
- Enforce our terms and conditions;
- Manage our business;
- Perform functions as otherwise described at the time of information collection.
3. Accessing, Reviewing and Changing Your Profile
You can access your profile information at any time by logging into RoseBrides.com and going to the “Account” and “Profile” pages. You can edit and change any of your profile information except for your username. You confirm that all personal information associated with your profile is true and accurate.
After you register, you can review and change the information you submitted during registration. Regardless of any changes you make to your account information, we retain historical information about your account. For example, if you change your name or email address we will retain a record of your old name and email address.
4. Deactivating or Deleting Your Account
Upon your request we will deactivate or delete your account from our active databases as soon as reasonably possible in accordance with our policies and applicable laws. We will retain in our files information you have asked us to remove from our active databases for certain purposes, such as to resolve disputes, troubleshoot problems and enforce our terms and conditions. Further, such information may never be completely removed from our databases due to technical and legal constraints, including stored backup systems.
5. Disclosure of Your Information
As a matter of policy, we do not sell or rent any personally identifiable information about you to third parties. However, we reserve the right to post your profile and photos on one additional online dating Web site operated by Technet, UAB to maximize the effectiveness of our service.
6. Billing Information
Under some circumstances we may require certain additional information, including but not limited to your credit card billing information. We use this billing information, including your name, address and other information, to collect payment for your use of our service. By making a purchase or engaging in other kinds of activities or transactions involving billing information on our site, you consent to let us provide your billing information to our service providers and to such third parties we deem necessary to process your transactions, as well as to your credit card issuer for their purposes.
Third parties may include the credit card companies and banking institutions involved in processing your transaction or activity. Any of these third parties may be authorized to use your billing information in accordance with our contractual arrangements with them and their respective privacy policies, over which we have no control; you agree that we are not responsible or liable for the actions or omissions of any third party. Additionally, you agree that we may use and disclose all information submitted to or by such third parties in the same manner in which we are entitled to use and disclose any other information you submit to us.
7. Legal Requests
We cooperate with law enforcement agencies and other third parties to enforce laws and investigate and prosecute unlawful activities such as frauds and scams. We can, and you authorize us to, disclose any information about you to law enforcement and other government officials as we, in our sole discretion, believe necessary or appropriate in connection with any investigation of fraud, scam or other illegal activity.
