Best Practices for Privacy and Safety
- Use a unique password when registering for the site. The password should be at least 8 characters long and not be a dictionary word or name. Using a password manager may be helpful providing it is trustworthy
- Do not use your real full name or address anywhere on the site including your username, in your profile, or in any message you send to another user.
- Do use your real and valid email. If you use a fake or temporary email we may have no means to verify that you are the owner of the profile should you lose access and want to delete it.
- Do not put your contact details on your profile - it is easy for the details to be farmed by spammers in this way. Only give contact details to other members after you have talked to them for a while and are comfortable doing so
- If you plan to meet any member from this site it is recommended that you meet them in a public place such as a busy restaurant or mall and that you bring a friend.
- Do not for any reason ever send money to any person on this site. If anyone ever asks for money either innocently (eg. to help pay their personal expenses) or in a suspicious way (eg. to help pay for hospital bills for a sick relative) DO NOT send any money and immediately report their profile using the report profile functionality so we can protect other members
All emails should be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org

We respect your personal information with the highest regard. Our services are regularly penetration tested and kept up to date with the latest software and operating system patches. We comply with standard security procedures such as password hashing and our site and apps are only available over an encrypted connection. New security vunerabilities are found in underlying software and operating systems daily and no matter how large an organization it is unreasonable to expect data posted online to remain 100% secure and it is always vunerable to loss or theft. For example another provider may be compromised and you used the same password and email as on this site. This would allow anyone with access to that data to access your information here without any fault of this organization. We recommend you use a unique password for each website for this reason. Profiles are not indexed by search engines and although an account is needed to log in and view profiles it is trivial for someone to create an account and then see your photos and profile information so this site an app should be considered public domain. Please do not submit any information that you are not comfortable sharing with strangers.
