About Busidate and the Information We Collect
Busidate is a membership based online dating service designed to provide an easy system for our members to meet each other on the Web. To accomplish this, our members create their own unique profiles and our technology provides them matches based on their pre-selected criteria. In order to do this, we must ask for certain personal information, which may or may not include: customer specified Busidate username, gender, age, ethnic background, appearance, religion, occupation, preference/lifestyle information, geographic location, and other various information. This information is used by visitors for searching and matching purposes. Much of this information is optional, and meant to be seen by other members and visitors. Public information supplied by the user is intended to be viewed by visitors to the site.
We may use email address and your other personal information to help us efficiently operate the site, to contact you in connection with your transactions, activity on the site (including, but not limited to, confirmation emails or important news that could affect your relationship with Busidate), and to forward messages to you from other Busidate users. These communications are known as "Operational Communications." These Operational Communications may also contain commercial messages, banner ads, newsletters, information, special offers and other promotional materials for Busidate's or 3rd parties' goods or services. The site provides you with options to decline to receive communications from Busidate (other than those contained in operational communications). Some of these options may only be for a certain category of communications; others may be more general. By posting a profile on the site, you are opting in to receive communications and offers sent by Busidate.
Busidate does not and will not send spam emails to email addresses entered into our website from one of our services. We will only use customer email addresses to contact and fulfill the services requested. We hold to a very strict no spam policy, since we are very much against spam ourselves. We do not sell, rent, share, trade, or give away any of your personally identifiable information except when we have your permission, in cases where you are expressly informed otherwise.
To accept new members, we may require information that includes, but is not limited to: email address, first name, last name, birth date, a user-specified username and password, country, state, and city. We primarily use email addresses submitted by members to verify enrollment. Email addresses may also be used in private correspondence with the user for customer service issues. All other private information submitted by the user is confidential and will not be disclosed except as required by law or to protect members of Busidate. Most private information can be updated by the user at any time. Except where you are expressly informed otherwise, we do not sell, rent, share, trade or give away any of your personal information unless required by law or for the protection of your membership.
