“The world can seem to be a lonely place at times for friendships and close companions, so with using free online dating website new friendships and associates can be made. However, this free online dating website does require you to complete some information when registering. The security of your personal information is sometimes displayed for others to see. There are fields on the registration form from the free online dating website that does not have to be filled in; this can be used to your own benefit for your own safety and protection.
However safe you may think you are, just because you are using the free online dating website, there are those who know your personal information, and usually a disclaimer is attached, or the free online dating website informs you that no other additional information required will be given out to strangers. Unfortunately this information that you fill out on the registration form will over a year or two be sold off to people who are looking for addresses and contact details to forward usually junk mail to or for other solicitation purposes. The free online dating website would usually be offered a substantial fee for their old database records, to do this.
Information Eventually Sold Off
So at the end of the day, any forms and information you complete on any website is never really safe if you have to add your address or contact numbers, not only the free online dating website. This applies to every form you fill in, no matter where or how, your information will be passed on at some time in the future. It therefore is important to remember, never to just include your identity number, home address and home telephone number to anything and everything that you have to complete. However some application forms over the Internet insist that some fields to be filled in are compulsory.
When you are feeling that you don’t want to fill these compulsory fields in, especially with a free online dating website, rather do not even bother filling the forms in. Your safety will still always be at risk.
However, not every free online dating website is as bad as it sounds, some have other functions and facilities and other required links to it such as a free online dating personals service. This would be a section possibly where jobs are advertised, goods and services are sold, offered, swapped or required for using the original website. Unfortunately, this does not seem like quite a safe service to offer on an online dating website, due to your information still being available.”
