What information will you ask me for?
When you register to use any Canadian Singles Club service you will be asked
for some general identifying information which will enable us to provide you
with this individualized service. We gather contact information (like your
email address), demographic information (like your city of residence or age).
We may share some of this information for our own research purposes with our
professional advisors or consultants and third party partners, however the
information shared will be limited to non-personally identifying demographic
information shared under cover of a confidentiality agreement. If you choose
to become a Full Member, we collect financial information (like your credit
card number and expiry date). We will only use this information in the course
of providing our service to you.
Once you have registered, you will be given the option of creating a pseudonymous
profile (nickname and personal description) within any of our communities where
your gender is applicable. Depending on which community you choose, you will
be asked for some personal but non-identifying information to complete your
profile (i.e. whether you have dependants, height, body type, race, religion,
whether you smoke, etc). This information is not linked in any way to your
personally identifiable information, for other members to see. Obviously, if
you provide us with a photograph or video some of your information may become
personally identifiable information.
How will this information be used and who has access to it?
If you choose to have them sent to you, we may use your contact information
to send you valuable updates and timely notices of promotions and mailbox status
reports. Our site provides you with the opportunity to opt-in to receiving
different types of communications from us at the point where we request registration
information. You may modify this choice at any time by selecting "Preferences" from
the member home page. We reserve the right to use your contact information
at any time to advise you of any updates that may materially affect your rights
or status on our site.
Your non-personally identifying demographic information is used to personalize
your experience, allow other members to find you through a search, to compose
your personal profile - which is associated with a pseudonymous identity you
have created - and to deliver targeted advertising and promotional offers to
you from external companies that are of the highest relevance to your demographic
profile. Other than your Canadian Singles Club mail box, your contact information
is never available to other members or organizations.
In the event that you decide to become a Full Member of Canadian Singles Club
community, you will be asked for your financial information (like credit card
number) which cannot be read by others when you initiate your order through
a secured system. You will know you are in secure mode when the tiny padlock
icon - located at the bottom of your browser - appears "locked".

review and to improve the content and functionality of our web server or customize
the layout of our pages for each individual member. The specific information
we collect is not shared with other organizations and we will never release
your personally identifiable information to an external organization without
your prior consent except for the purposes of validating credit information
and collecting debts. We may disclose your personally identifiable information
