Personal Data about you specifically

The only personal data Euro Digital currently collects through this Web Site is the information you give us when you use our Web Site. When you complete the registration form, we will collect and store your name, e-mail address, your likes and dislikes, details of your interests, and your photo. We may ask you for more information from time to time to keep your profile up to date. We will use this information to build your personal profile in our database to provide you with access to compatible new friends and partners. We may also use that information to make you aware of additional products and services which may be of interest to you, or to contact you regarding site changes, or at your request. We ask only for data that is adequate, relevant, and not excessive for those purposes.

When we ask you for personal data, we tell you the purposes for which we will process that data. As the information you submit on registration is likely to contain data categorised as “sensitive” by the Data Protection Act 1998, in submitting the registration form you give your explicit consent to our use of such data.

We will provide you with a Dating Channel e-mail account for your personal use to correspond confidentially with other members of the Web Site.
