What type of personal data do we collect and process?

Our services using personal data

As stated before, Top Dating Sites Now does not provide the possibility to create a user profile. It’s also impossible to comment, buy products via our website or register for a newsletter. This already precludes a very common reason for collecting your personal data from applying to us.

Collecting and processing contact information

We do offer the possibility to fill in a contact form in order to contact our editors team with a question or remark. This contact form requires you to fill in your email address and name, so our team can process the question/remark and provide you with an answer. Without this information, we can’t approach you.

Collecting and processing automatically generated statistical data

To make sure the website runs optimally and to keep improving, information about your use of our website is automatically processed. Optimizing our website mostly has to do with technical adjustments that, for example, make sure our pages are shown properly and that they are secure and protected. The information that is processed consists of, for example, the type of device you use (desktop, mobile, tablet), your IP address (your device’s internet address that is often linked to your general location), which browser you use, the operating system you use, the pages you visit on our website and where you came from before landing on our website. This is depersonalized data and it’s impossible to trace it back to you. This information is gathered through placing analytical cookies. You can read more about this in our Cookie Statement.

We obtain the categories of personal information listed above from the following categories of sources:

Directly from you. For example, from forms you complete or products and services you purchase.

We will only store your personal data submitted via the contact form for as long as necessary for the purposes they were collected and processed in the first place.

Cookies

We use Cookies and other similar technologies to help provide Services, to advertise to you and to analyse how you use our Services and whether advertisements are being viewed. We also allow third parties to use tracking technologies for similar purposes. To make sure your experience on our website is as pleasant and positive as possible.t

What do we use cookies for?

We use cookies for several different purposes:

Functional cookies: to make sure our website is user-friendly and safe.
Analytical cookies: to be able to analyse how our website is used.
Advertising cookies: to be able to place the right advertisements.
Social media cookies: to make sure you can share or save pictures and articles.

Below you can read exactly what the cookies in these categories do. You can also read about which companies can place cookies on your computer, tablet or phone when you visit our website, since we do not always do it ourselves. Sometimes we use the services of other companies and they place the cookies. The Google company is a good example of this. Google offers us products we can use to measure how many visitors we have on our website and supplies us with some advertisements. To be able to do this they have to place a cookie.

When another company places a cookie, we will refer you via a link to their privacy statement or cookie statement. That way you can read for yourself what these companies do with the cookies they place.

Log Files: We collect information through server log files, but also by deploying tracking technologies within the Site, such as pixel tags. We do this to analyze trends, track user’s engagement and interaction with the Site and respective Services. The type of information collected may include internet protocol (IP) addresses that your Internet Service Provider allocated to your device. We collect IP for a limited time and for specific purposes. One is to better understand your geographic location (country, region, and language) and therefore be able to provide the Services in your own language and relevant to your place of origin. Second, we use automated tools to analyse IP addresses and flag those that are fraudulent.

Information we receive from Third Parties

Like many Internet-based services, the Site, and the Services are operated and provided in collaboration, sync, and interaction with third parties, including Partners, affiliates and other third parties. In order to enable and facilitate such sync, we may receive information from third parties, such as an internal user identifier that our system generates to each click (not a unique identifier), and the summary of action taken by you (click, view page, signup, etc)

Except for the cases and specific usage and purposes described in this Privacy Policy, we do not retain the information in a manner that enables us to personally identify you. Therefore, request to access, edit or delete your Information can be processed only in cases where you submitted such information or used a Service that involved the collection of Personal Information. In such a case, if you would like to review, edit or delete your Personal Information that we may be storing, please contact us at: dataprotection @ topdatingsitesnow. com request review, edit or deletion. The processing of your request may take up to 30 business days.

California Residents: CCPA Disclosures

The CCPA (California Consumer Privacy Act) provides consumers (California residents) with specific rights regarding their personal information. This section describes your CCPA rights and explains how to exercise those rights.

As a California resident and within 45 days, Top Dating Sites Now will respond to your right to:

Request a copy of the specific personal information collected about you during the 12 months before your request (a “personal information request”);
Have such information deleted (with exceptions);
Request that your personal information not be sold to third parties, if applicable; and
Not to be discriminated against because you have exercised any of these rights.

Should you choose to exercise any of your rights above, CCPA allows consumers to make a personal information request no more than twice in a 12-month period and that business will need to collect information from the requesting party so that it can verify a Consumer’s identity. However, because Top Dating Sites Now collects very limited personal data that is further pseudo-anonymized, most times we will not be able to provide you with copies of specific personal information or delete it.

Non-Discrimination

We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your CCPA rights. Unless permitted by the CCPA, we will not:

Deny you goods or services or access to our content.
Provide you a different level or quality of goods or services.

Children Under 13 Years of Age.

This website is not directed to children. You must be 13 years and older to register to use the website. As a result, we do not knowingly collect information from children under the age of 13. If we learn that information has been collected from a child under the age of 13, we will delete that information as quickly as possible. We recommend that minors between the ages of 13 and 18 ask and receive their parents’ permission before using this website or sending information about themselves or anyone else over the Internet.

Do Not Track Disclosures

We may also use tracking technologies to collect information about your visits over time and across third-party websites or other online services. If you would like more information about this practice and to know your choices about not having this information used by these companies and to opt-out of most third-party tracking, you may go to: http://www.networkadvertising.org/choices/ or http://www.aboutads.info/choices/

California Consumer Rights – Do Not Sell My Personal Information

For California Residents Only: You can contact Top Dating Sites Now to ask us not to sell your personal information, by sending an email at dataprotection @ topdatingsitesnow.com

Access, improvement and transferability of your data

If you want to know which of your personal data we have stored, you can submit a request via our contact form. This is only possible for the personal data we gather. The data we merely process cannot be called upon retroactively. This means that the only data you can have access to is the information you have submitted to us by means of the contact form. If you want to apply any changes to the information you have requested, you can let our member of staff who has helped you with the request know about it. You can request from them that Top Dating Sites Now changes, improves, complements, deletes or screens off your data in another way.

You also have the right to be supplied with the personal data you submitted in a common, structured and readable form and to consequently transfer this data yourself. The same procedure applies here: you can send your request to us via the contact form. Top Dating Sites Now will respond to your request within one month. In exceptional cases, Top Dating Sites Now has the legal right to respond to your request within a three month period, for example when the request is very complex. If this is the case, Top Dating Sites Now will let you know within one month.

If Top Dating Sites Now refuses your request, we will notify you in writing.

Limitation of Liability

Under no circumstances, including, but not limited to, negligence, shall we be liable for any direct, indirect, incidental, special, or consequential damages that result from the use of, or the inability to use, the site or materials or functions on our site, even if we have been advised of the possibility of such damages.

Can I refuse my personal data being used?

We need the personal data you provide us with when you contact us to be able to respond to your question or remark. We cannot respond to anonymous submissions. The usage of depersonalized data we process for functional and analytical purposes cannot be refused, except by completely blocking the use of cookies in your web browser. Read more about this in our Cookie Statement. The usage of depersonalized data for marketing and social media purposes can be refused by not consenting to it when you are asked permission while visiting our website.

Changes to Privacy Policy
