Our Disclosure of Your Information
We DO NOT sell or rent any of your PII to third parties for marketing purposes without your permission. We do, however, provide your PII to our service providers (e.g., Credit Card Processing companies, Billing Services) as reasonably necessary or appropriate to provide services on the DateMall Networks Websites.
We do disclose information in the aggregate to advertisers and for other marketing and promotional purposes. However, in these situations, we DO NOT disclose information in any form that could be used to identify you personally such as your DateMall website password, credit card number, and bank account number.
In response to compulsory (required) governmental and/or third party inquiries, we may disclose PII to comply with a court order, subpoena, and search warrant. We expressly reserve the right to disclose your PII when we have a good faith belief that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights, or to enforce our agreements, policies, and rules governing your use of the DateMall Website, or to cooperate voluntarily with law enforcement inquiries.
We may share or transfer some or all of your PII among our DateMall Networks family of companies, or to one or more non-DateMall family entities that acquire some or all of the business in which that PII is used or maintained.
Do Not Disclose Your PII or Password
Please DO NOT post, share or disclose in public forums, e.g., chat rooms, blogs, etc. any PII that you do not wish other members to know. We encourage you to ask questions before you disclose any of your PII to others. Similarly, you should never disclose or share your password with anyone else. If you lose control of your password, you may lose substantial control over your PII and may be subject to legally binding actions taken on your behalf. If your password has been compromised for any reason, you should immediately change your password and/or contact us at Support@datemall.com
Changing, Reviewing or Removing Your Personally Identifiable Information
Once you register, you will be able to review and change much of your PII including, but not limited to:
Your email address
Your city, state/province, Zip/Postal code, country
We strongly urge you to change your password periodically to help reduce the risk of unauthorized access to your account information.
Upon receiving your request, we will remove your credit card details from our main databases. To make this request, email us at Support@datemall.com. Despite the foregoing and even though you have requested us to remove information, we will retain in our files certain data such as credit card information used to resolve disputes, troubleshoot problems, comply with credit card merchant banking and association agreements, enhance security, reduce fraud, comply with Federal and State law, or to enforce any agreements, policies, and rules governing your use of DateMall Websites. Removed information also may persist in backup copies and/or other users’ caches. For example, any information exchange with other members may remain in their e-mail boxes, computer caches, or instant message archive. Whether your exchanged information is kept by another member is beyond the control of any DateMall Websites. Any such information retained by DateMall Networks or under its control is not available to third parties except as provided in this Policy.
DateMall Networks use reasonable security measures to help protect and prevent the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under our control. We use industry standard efforts, such as firewalls, to safeguard your PII information. While “perfect security” does not exist on the internet, or elsewhere, we work hard to help ensure your secure use of our services.

If you are visiting Our Websites from outside the United States, you are on notice that your information may be transferred to, stored and processed in the United States and/or Canada.
