About PeopleFishing Network and the Information We Collect
PeopleFishing Network is an online matchmaking service developed for our members to meet each other on the Web. To accomplish this, our members create their own unique profiles and our technology provides them matches based on their pre-selected criteria. To do this, members provide personal information. None of the information we collect can be used by the public to identify specific individuals.
We are a membership-based service. We collect credit card, address, or bank information only from those who choose to join.
Information Collected/Tracked by PeopleFishing Network
PeopleFishing Network collects two types of information: information users submit to us and information not directly submitted by users.
Information submitted to PeopleFishing Network
There are two types of user-submitted information we collect: Public and Private. Public information is personal information that may be displayed on the site, such as gender, age and height, but cannot be linked to a particular user. Private information is any information that allows others to contact a user other than through PeopleFishing Network or allows the collection of information about the user other than what is displayed on the site.
Public: As stated, we collect personal information, which may or may not include: customer-specified PeopleFishing Network username, gender, age, ethnic background, appearance, religion, income range, occupation, preference/lifestyle information and general geographic location. Much of this information is optional, and meant to be seen by members and visitors to the site but cannot be used to identify a specific member by name, address, etc.
Private: This information is gathered from members and guests who apply for the various services our site offers. This information includes, but is not limited to: email address, first name, last name, birthdate, credit card number for payment, a user-specified password, mailing address, zip code and telephone number.
Surveys & Contests: From time-to-time our site requests information from users via surveys or contests. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary. Information requested may include contact information (such as name and shipping address), and demographic information (such as zip code, and age).
PeopleFishing Network Affiliate Partners: The Affiliate Partner program is a vehicle for other sites to link to the PeopleFishing Network site. No personal member information is exchanged with the Affiliate Partner.
