Meeteez.com is a membership-based service. To enjoy the services and products offered by Meeteez.com, a person voluntarily registers on the website to become a member and thereby submits certain personally identifiable information. The term "user" is defined generally as any person, including members and visitors, who access the website for any purpose. This Privacy Statement applies to all users of the website, unless otherwise expressly stated. Information gathered by Meeteez.com falls into two categories: directly submitted and indirectly (passively) submitted.
Members are asked to submit a range of identifiable personal information as part of the registration process. The goal of Meeteez.com is to provide a forum for people to get together. To this end, Meeteez.com encourages the posting of certain identifiable personal information to be placed in a general public viewing area of the website. Most Public Information is optional and its public posting is encouraged so that the user has the best experience possible with Meeteez.com's matching service. A user's public information includes, but is not limited to, any of the following listed separately or in combination: photo, gender, age, physical appearance, relationship sought, marital status, race, religion, and educational level.
When joining Meeteez.com, the website indirectly collects certain types of information from users via Facebook Connect.
In addition to providing customer support and delivering the products and/or services you have ordered, Meeteez.com will use the Public Information and/or Private Information you provide to cause information, offers, products, and/or services that appear to us to be consistent with your expressed interests to be directed to you. This is typically accomplished by sharing, selling, licensing, and/or transferring your Public Information and/or Private Information with third parties. We may, however, also use your Public Information and/or Private Information to direct to you information, offers, products, and/or services from us. Your Public Information and Private Information may, therefore, ultimately be used for marketing purposes by us and/or any reputable third party with whom we may affiliate. In addition, we may provide aggregate statistics about our members and visitors regarding demographic information, traffic patterns, user movements and related website information to reputable third parties, but these statistics do not disclose personally identifiable information from or about a particular user.
We use third-party advertising companies to serve ads when you visit our Web site. These companies may use information (not including your name, address, email address or telephone number) about your visits to this and other websites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you.
Public Information provided by a Member is used to create a profile that is typically viewable to all other users of the website for searching and matchmaking purposes. Publicly posted information cannot be used to contact a member by real name, home or billing street address, phone number, email address, etc.
Meeteez.com IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR USERS WHO INTENTIONALLY OR OTHERWISE DISCLOSE PRIVATE INFORMATION IN THE FREE TEXT AREAS OF THEIR PROFILE, EMAIL CORRESPONDENCE OR IN PUBLIC FORUMS, WHICH ARE PUBLICLY VIEWABLE BY USERS.
Meeteez.com will use a member's personally identifiable Private Information primarily for three purposes:
Members will occasionally receive information on current or new products, services, or special deals from Meeteez.com or its selected partners.
A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user's computer tied to information about the user. The cookie contains no personally identifiable information. The cookie is used to verify your logged-in status. A Member must be logged in to their account to use Meeteez.com.
As a user, you can choose to have your computer warn you each time a cookie is being sent, or you can choose to turn off all cookies. This is done through the browser (like Internet Explorer) settings. Each browser is different, so check your browser's "help" menu to learn how to modify your cookies setting. If you turn off your cookies, you may not have access to many features and other services may not function properly. For example, members will not be able to log in to their accounts if the cookies are turned off.
THOUGH WE MAKE EVERY EFFORT TO PRESERVE USER PRIVACY, WE MAY NEED TO DISCLOSE PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION WHEN REQUIRED BY LAW OR TO COMPLY WITH LEGAL PROCESSES; TO RESPOND TO CLAIMS THAT ANY OF THE CONTENT VIOLATES THE PROPERTY, PRIVACY, PUBLICITY OR OTHER RIGHTS OF OTHERS; TO PROTECT THE RIGHTS, PROPERTY OR SAFETY OF THE COMPANY, ITS EMPLOYEES, USERS AND MEMBERS OF THE PUBLIC; OR IN ASSISTING A CRIMINAL INVESTIGATION BY LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICIALS.
