PRIVACY POLICY

How we handle your private information

Cookies

A cookie consists of a piece of text sent by a web server to a web browser and stored by the browser. The information is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server. This enables the web server to identify and track the web browser.

We use both "session" cookies and "persistent" cookies on the website. We will use the session cookies to: keep track of visitors whilst you navigate the website. We will use the persistent cookies to: enable our website to recognise you when you visit us.
 
Session cookies will be deleted from your computer when you close your browser. Persistent cookies will remain stored on your computer until deleted, or until they reach a specified expiry date.

We use Google Analytics to analyse the use of this website. Google Analytics generates statistical and other information about website use by means of cookies, which are stored on users' computers. The information generated relating to our website is used to create reports about the use of the website. Google will store this information. Google's privacy policy is available at www.google.com.

Our payment services provider may also send you cookies to handle your payment.

Most browsers allow you to reject all cookies, whilst some browsers allow you to reject just third party cookies. For example, in Internet Explorer you can refuse all cookies by clicking "Tools", "Internet Options", "Privacy", and selecting "Block all cookies" using the sliding selector. Blocking all cookies will, however, have a negative impact upon the usability of many websites, including this one. 

Security of Payment

Original Dating is aware of the concern that some people feel about buying online. We, therefore, undertake to provide an easy-to-use, secure and reliable service. All of our online payments are processed by Stripe and payments are encrypted using the most secure technology available. Our payment security is under constant review so should further measures become available we endeavour to offer the most secure payment systems available.

All your personal information will be encrypted, and every transaction that you make will be fully protected from any possible fraudulent threats and abuse.

We do not store your credit/card details on our own systems. These are simply used once by our bank to process your transaction.

Privacy Statement

We are committed to protecting your privacy. We will only use the information that we collect about you lawfully (in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998).

We collect information about you for 2 reasons: firstly, to process your order and second, to provide you with the best possible service. We will not e-mail you in the future unless you have given us your consent. We will give you the chance to refuse any marketing email from us or from another trader in the future.

The type of information we will collect about you includes:

  • your name 
  • phone number 
  • e-mail address 

We will never collect sensitive information about you without your explicit consent.

The information we hold will be accurate and up to date. You can check the information that we hold about you by writing to us. If you find any inaccuracies we will delete or correct it promptly.

The personal information which we hold will be held securely in accordance with our internal security policy and the law in England & Wales.

If we intend to transfer your information outside the EEA (European Economic Area) we will always obtain your consent first.

If you have any questions/comments about privacy, you should e-mail us.

We invest in the best quality security available to us and do our utmost to protect user privacy. UK Data Protection Legislation means we follow strict security procedures in the storage and disclosure of your details, to prevent unauthorised access.
