Site Privacy Policy and Security Notice

Please take careful note of the items below and should you not agree with any of these in full, please do not continue to use the site. This Policy forms part of our Terms and Conditions and by continuing to use this site, you are indicating your full agreement with all the provisions below. Should any item in this Privacy Policy be found to be invalid, the rest of this Privacy Policy shall still appy.

Alert! Please be on the lookout for criminals abusing social media.
Please be aware that there are unfortunately fraudsters that target all internet sites, and even social media sites like Facebook of LinkedIn. Never, EVER, under any circumstances, allow yourself to be taken in by stories about poverty, starving kids, etc, and do not get conned into sending money or providing any financial details such as your bank account to any stranger on this (or any other similar) site, even on Facebook, especially if you haven't met the person in the flesh. Be especially careful of people who pretend that they are "working overseas", for example "American soldiers in Iraq" and who tell you stories, such as that they're "stuck in another country and need money to go home." It is also impossible for us to check whether the photos anybody uploads, are actually the photos of the person uploading it. So please be careful - there are scamsters out there, often from Nigeria or in other African countries, and are trying to get you to send them money. This is the last you will see of your money, and you will never meet the person in the flesh. Never, ever do so, no matter how charming the person may appear.

The site you are using at present, is a dating site and by its very nature members' information, which includes photographs, is publicly visible, unless such members choose to hide their profiles. By continuing to use the site, you acknowledge this fact.

However, except for your email address as is mentioned in the next paragraph, this site never collects or saves any other information that can identify you personally. The information NOT gathered by this site, includes your physical address, place of work, your name and surname, or your banking details.

You are also advised that this site, and its affiliate sites, may from time to time use the contact information that you supply, to contact you electronically. We never, however, send out spam mails or unsolicited email to any email address whose owner did not register a profile on this site. You have to opt in to receive emails from this site. We will also never share your personal email address or other personal contact information, with a third party.

As is stated in our Terms and Conditions, you are hereby advised that The Owner operates several other related dating sites, each with its own branding, name and target market, and that you hereby also agree to receive electronic correspondence, including promotional materials, from these related sites, or their members, as well. The above fact is mentioned on our site's landing page as well, namely that we operate a network of sites, Namely stoutgat.co.za, Speeltyd.net and Afrikaansedating.com. You are hereby informed that these sites share a members' database, of which your data forms part, and that you agree to be part of the shared database. However, all the abovementioned sites and databases are owned and managed by the Owner of the site you are currently using, and your information will therefore not be shared with any other company, party or external database. Should you however not agree to this, please visit this page in order to remove your profile and please do not continue using this site, in that case.

It is a condition of use of this site that you maintain a working email address. We do not allow fake or inoperable email addresses on our site.

We will therefore not allow you to have an invalid, disabled or blocking email address to which we cannot send email. Should your mail be returned for any reason, you are hereby advised your profile will be permanently deleted, and you will not receive any refund whatsoever.

You are advised that you need to exercise extreme caution in exchanging information with any other member of the site, especially residential or financial information.

The Owner will not sell or provide your private information to any third party, unless it is legally required of the Owner by law enforcement agencies or a court order.

Unless you delete your profile (you are able to use this page to do so), you are advised that we will retain your profile information for an indefinite period, until such time as you yourself delete your profile.

While the site does allow you to mark your profile as hidden or deleted, you are advised that it does retain your information in its database and does not physically delete your records even if you do delete your information, for a period of 3 (three) months after such deletion takes place. This is in case of future disputes; for example, another member may complain that somebody has used abusive language and there has to be a way of retrieving such information, even if the member who made the abusive remarks did mark his profile as deleted.
