We uphold the strictest of standards with respect to protection of privacy and of personal information. Our technical teams do their utmost to ensure the safety of our sites.

Some information, comments or content (eg photographs, video, profile, lifestyle) that the Member optionally provides may possibly, under the responsibility and on the initiative of the Member concerned, reveal the ethnic origin of the Member, his/her nationality, religion and/or sexual orientation. By providing such optional information, the Member concerned confirms his/her intention and, consequently, expressly consents to, and takes sole responsibility for, the processing of this mentioned "sensitive" data by us and our group companies (by which we mean us, any of our parent companies, and any subsidiaries of us or our parent company), and their service providers located within and outside of the European Union (herein, the "MatchMkr Dating Website").
Each Member can access or request access to information concerning him/her in order to have it modified, deleted or to forbid any further use by us of it. Members can submit such requests for access by mailing their requests to the following address: MatchMkr, Suite 3/1, 12 Armadale Street, Glasgow, G31 2UX, Scotland or by filling out the contact forms, and each Member shall carefully identify the sender's personal information.
