Personal information & Safety
DuoDater would like to remind you to use extreme caution before sharing personal information with other users on the site.
DuoDater, by its very nature, promotes sharing of some personal information publicly and directly with other users. Please use caution, as DuoDater cannot and does not assure that direct contact with other users of the website is always safe. DuoDater does not screen its members in any way, and does not guarantee the authenticity of their backgrounds, written statements, or images. By accessing this Website, you agree to handle any personal information given to you by other users in a lawful and responsible manner.
Be careful with what information you disseminate, as technology on the Website has made it possible for users of the Internet to find various information about you, even with small amounts of information, such as your name or email address. If you believe that a user of this Website is harassing you or using your personal information in an unlawful way, please first contact your local law enforcement. Once a report has been filed with the authorities, please contact us (email@example.com) so we can take appropriate action against the user(s) in question.
If you create an account on the Website, you are responsible for maintaining the security of your account, and you are fully responsible for all activities that occur under the account. You must immediately notify DuoDater of any unauthorized uses of your username, password, account or any other breaches of security. Be especially cautious when accessing the site from public or shared computers, so that others are not able to view or record your password or any other personal information. We recommend you exit from your account at the end of each session to ensure your account security.
Security & Privacy
The DuoDater Team strives to provide proper safeguards to protect the confidentially of your personal information. Due to the changing nature of technology and security, we do not guarantee that any personal information provided to us will not become public.
