Collection of your Personal Information
UKAsianMatch.com explicitly asks when it needs information that personally identifies you (“Personal Information”) pertinent to the specific product or service you are choosing to use or subscribe to on the UKAsianMatch.com web sites. This information can include your e-mail address, name, address, and telephone number, as applicable. UKAsianMatch.com also may ask for non-personal information or demographic information. None of the information we gather can be used by the public (visitors, other members, and anyone not employed by UKAsianMatch.com, its corporate affiliates, or the financial institutions we use to process membership charges) to identify a specific individual. Members choose when to disclose their personal information at their own risk such as when contacting others through the contact system.
We are a membership-based service. We collect the name and email address of standard account members. Anyone on the Internet can search our profiles or sign up for a standard free account and use all standard member features at no charge. Anyone is also welcome to create a online profile free of charge. For maximum exposure, member profiles are viewable on any of the UKAsianMatch.com web sites. All sites of UKAsianMatch.com are owned and operated by Xiant Incorporated and none of the information is shared with any third party unless you join on our partner “co-brand” sites in which you will be notified up-front that your UKAsianMatch.com information will be shared with the UKAsianMatch.com co-brand partner. All UKAsianMatch.com web sites and profiles reside on our one central database and on no third party systems.
UKAsianMatch.com gathers two types of information: information that users submit to us and information not directly submitted by users.
Information submitted to UKAsianMatch.com
There are two types of information we collect that users submit: public and private. We define private information to be any information that allows others to contact a user other than through UKAsianMatch.com or allows the collection of information about the user other than what is displayed on the site. Public information is personal information that may be displayed on the site, such as gender, age and height, but cannot be linked to a particular user.
The information gathered from standard free account members includes, email address, IP address, first and last name.
To accomplish the goal of bringing compatible individuals together, we must gather personal information such as gender, age, appearance, caste, religion and more for the online profiles. This information is meant to be seen by members and visitors to the site but cannot be used to identify a specific member by name, address, etc. UKAsianMatch.com does not require individuals to include contact information in their profile descriptions/text fields.
Information that users do not submit to us is aggregate information: This is information we collect that is not personally identifiable, such as what kind of browser you are using, IP address and occasionally trace route to your computer. This information is gathered for all visitors to the site.
Use of your Personal Information
UKAsianMatch.com and our sites use your personal information to operate the UKAsianMatch.com sites and to provide the services you have requested. The information is also used to communicate with you regarding your UKAsianMatch.com account by sending out periodic newsletters and notices that are considered as essential to the operation of the service.. The non- personal information is used to compile general demographic statistics which is shared in the aggregate with UKAsianMatch.com advertisers. We also use your e-mail address to respond to incoming service and support requests from you, to collect customer feedback, customer satisfaction surveys, and other service informational mailings. Should the situation arise, customer information may be subject to disclosure pursuant to judicial or other government subpoenas, warrants, or orders. All information collected in our registration process is not accessible by other members except for the following:
If a member has a profile on the site and another member contacts them, an email is sent to the contacted member with their message and the contacter’s reply-to email address. What the contacter discloses in this email is up to them and is done at their own risk. If the contacted member wishes to respond it is up to them how to do it and what they want to disclose. They can retrieve the contacter’s reply-to email address via their contact manager or in the initial message itself. When a member contacts another member on the site via our contact system they are disclosing their email address on file to the contacted at their own risk. This is done so the contacted can get back in touch with them.
Public information supplied by the user on their profile is intended to be viewed by visitors and members of the site. This information is disclosed by members at their discretion.
Information that users do not submit to us is aggregate information: We use your server, IP address, and browser-type related information in the general administration of our web site for tracking where people come from and other data.
