What information will Gleeden collect ?
When you use Gleeden, you may set up your personal profile, form relationships, send messages, perform searches and queries, send virtual gifts, and transmit information through various channels (the “Services”). In order to facilitate your use of Gleeden and its Services, we collect personal information from you, including your age, email address, login name, password, profession, sex, gender, language, physical description, photos, marital status, sexual preferences, location, and education level so that we can provide you the Services, allow our search engines to generate the best results for prospects who may be of interest, and offer personalized features. We also keep the photos, saved searches, private messages, and IP address that you use or enter when you make use of the Services.
Some of the information you choose to provide when you register, update, or modify your account is considered “sensitive” or “special” data (for instance, your sexual preferences, sexual activities, or racial/ethnic background). Because you voluntarily share this information when your register for your account or share it through the Service, you are freely consenting to our processing of that information.
When you register for an account with our service, we will send you a welcoming confirmation email, based upon the personal information you provide us, to verify your account. We will also communicate with you in response to your inquiries, to provide the services you request, and to manage your account. We will communicate with you by email, in accordance with your wishes.
We will send you strictly service-related announcements on rare occasions when it is necessary to do so. For instance, if our service is temporarily suspended for maintenance, we might send you an email. Generally, you may not opt-out of these communications, which are not promotional in nature. If you do not wish to receive them, you have the option to deactivate your account.
We will occasionally send you information on products, services, special deals, promotions. Out of respect for your privacy, we present the option not to receive these types of communications. Please see the “Opt-out” section below.
If you wish to subscribe to our newsletter(s), we will use your user name and email address to send the newsletter to you. Out of respect for your privacy, we provide you a way to unsubscribe. Please see the “Opt-out” section below.
We will save your personal information (email address), and demographic data (such as your city, your age, your gender) on our servers. Gleeden may share only general demographic data not associated with any users’ profile with our consultants to improve our Service, but we do not sell or transfer this information with others.
How will Gleeden use my personal information ?
Gleeden will use your personal information to process your purchase transactions, to send you marketing and promotional materials by e-mail, to keep you apprised of updates, and to help us improve our services for you, including by creating a log file to ensure the security of the site.

How secure is my personal information on Gleeden ?
Your personal information is very important to us. Gleeden uses various technical and management practices to help protect your confidentiality, security and integrity of the information you share with us.
Your credit card number and other personal information are protected during payment by our use of secure socket layer (SSL) technology that allows for the secure transmission of information from your computer to our servers. Our payment process is PCI compliant.
We follow generally accepted standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

When you register your profile, you may use a pseudonym for username, indicate the city where you live and provide a description of yourself and of your preferences. Your real name never appears on the website, but be aware that some material that you post (for example, personal pictures) may identify you.

We will keep your personal information as long as your profile remains active. Once you cease to be a Member, Gleeden will not archive your personal information on our servers but will automatically delete all your personal information from our servers.

How can I access my personal information and manage it ?
You can access and manage your information from the page “manage my profile” or “my account” while you are a Member. When you cease to be a Member, you may contact us at any time to access the non-personal information in our possession, to the extent that it exists, but we will need you to provide information sufficient to verify your identity.

This may cause us to stop offering you the Service and terminate your member account.

What information do you gather from visitors ?
Gleeden may share non-personal information (including but not limited to hits to our server, the types of browsers used to access our Site, page views, and navigational patterns) with consultants for statistical reasons, or to enhance the Service. The information that is collected in this manner does NOT provide us with any personal information about our Members.

Gleeden may also uses devices called “web beacons” to help us identify when emails sent to you have been received and read.
We use your IP address to maintain our site and be able to react quickly to any problem with our server.
Clear Gifs (Web Beacons/Web Bugs/Tracking Pixel)
We employ and our third party advertising partner employs a software technology called clear gifs (a.k.a. Web Beacons/Web Bugs/Tracking Pixel), that help us better manage content on our site by informing us what content is effective.
