This agreement was last updated on August 25, 2020.

We at Datizen ("we" or "Datizen") are committed to protecting your privacy. The following policy describes our information gathering and dissemination practices for this Web site. This policy is intended to explain the methods and practices that we employ to safeguard the confidentiality of your personal information. We will notify all registered users via email of any material change to this Privacy Policy.

Information gathered from registered users

Datizen uses cookies to track user sessions. Cookies are small pieces of data stored on your computer's hard drive that is used to identify a registered user once they have logged into the Datizen Web site. A session can be defined as a period of time during which a user is logged into the Datizen Web site. The use of cookies to track user sessions is a very common practice on the Internet and is required to use the Datizen Web site.

During the registration process, you will be required to provide some basic information in order to create a dating profile. This information includes: 1) contact information, such as email address, 2) demographic information, such as city and state of residence and birthdate. We may share some of this information to conduct our own research with professional advisors or consultants, but will be limited to non-personally identifying demographic information.

If you decide to create a dating profile, you will be asked to provide additional personal information. This information includes such things as height, body type, ethnicity, and religion. This information is restricted to your dating profile and is in no way linked to your personally indentifiable information for other members to view. However, if you decide to provide Datizen with a photograph for your dating profile, some of your information may become personally identifiable.

How information is used and who has access to it

Datizen reserves the right to use your contact information at any time to advise you of any updates that may materially affect your rights or status on our site.

Your non-personally identifying demographic information is used to personalize your experience, allow other members to find your profile through a search, and to create your profile. Your contact information is never available to other members or organizations. Other members may only contact you through methods of communication available on the Datizen Web site which does not involve personally identifiable information.

The information that you provide to us is kept as long as you are a registered member of the site or for as long as we are required to do so by law, whichever is longer. You can always verify or request the removal of personally identifiable information we have collected and change your registration information by selecting the "Account" section on the Datizen Web site.

Monitoring online behavior

Our members communicate through an email system on the Datizen Web site. While we do not, as a rule, moderate or monitor members' private exchanges, we reserve the right to do so if we suspect users of being under 18 or of using the service for the purpose of solicitation or any other violation of our terms of use or Privacy Policy. Member submissions that appear on the public area of the site are moderated and, if necessary, we reserve the right to edit, delete, remove or not use any communication on a public area of the site.

Security features

Datizen uses generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information that you submit to us, both during transmission and once it has been received. However, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Therefore, while we use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee absolute security.
