Your privacy is our priority
The Site Visitors
The Website regularly aggregates the information that does not identify the personality of the user. This data is usually being made available by browsers and servers. The disclosed information includes the type of the browser exploited, the language selected, site references, the time and date a particular user visits the Site. The reason why such non-personally-identifying data is being collected and perceived as important is that it helps us to find out how our clients exploit the Website. This kind of information might be occasionally released in a form of an aggregated database or in a form of a generalized report reflecting the key trends in the exploitation of hookupguru.com. We also collect some sort of personally-identifying data. Those users who log in to the Site and those who post their commentaries on the Website have their IP addresses detected and recorded. This information would be disclosed only in the selected cases and under conditions which are listed below.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Data
To some extent, the disclosure of personally-identifying information depends on the Site visitors. Some activities on hookupguru.com require providing the additional data. For instance, when users decide to post their reviews they are supposed to sign in and provide their email addresses and usernames. We will gather this information and keep it. But not all the users are obliged to provide us with such data.
We are doing our best to guarantee you a decent level of data protection: we exploit the tools that help us to protect your personal information from leakage and misuse. However, you should remember that we cannot give you 100% guarantee that your data would not be compromised. You should be aware that when you share any information on the Web or store any files online you face certain risks.

Personally-Identifying Data: Selective Protection
There are only two cases when we disclose information which is truly or potentially personally-identifying to third parties, our own employees and contractors or the actors we are affiliated with. Thus, we share such data if: It is required to guarantee the proper functioning of the Website and the availability of all the functions; The third party gave a promise not to transmit the information further. In some case, people we share the data with are being located in geographically remote areas. If you keep on using hookupguru.com we assume that you agree on the transfer of your data to the countries where third parties are being located. There are no cases in which we sell or rent your truly or potentially personally-identifying data. The only additional reason why such information might be disclosed lies within the legal field: if we receive a subpoena, any request from a court or government we are obliged to disclose your data. Also, in a case we consider you to be a threat to the safety of the Website, its property or rights, we preserve our right to make your data available to third parties or the general public. Considering you created an account at the Site, your email address has been added to our list of contacts. Therefore, we might send you letters informing you about the latest functions and services we offer, asking you to take part in a survey or to provide your feedback, or letting you know about the general news considering our Site and products. We will not overwhelm you with our emails as usually we post all the essential information in our blog which you can find on the Website.
