The personal information we gather about you will be solely for the purposes of matching your interests and lifestyle with those of other members, and for sending you emails about events which may be of interest to you.
Our events are aimed at increasing the possibility of our members meeting a suitable partner, in a relaxed, fun and safe environment. However, we are not a match making service, and therefore cannot be held responsible for the behaviour or veracity of other members that you meet on or off the site.
