SOCIAL 8 PRIVACY STATEMENT

 

The Social 8 Service

Social 8 offers a membership based package for single people.

Privacy

Social 8 have created this Privacy Statement to confirm our commitment to maintaining your privacy at all times while you use our service. The following statement discloses the type of information that we collect about you and the way that it is used to assist us in organising Social 8 events and dinners, while at the same time maintaining the security and confidentiality of your private information.

Information We Collect

Social 8 collects personal information about you for the purpose of assisting in achieving the goal of this service, which is to bring single people together for the purpose of socialising in an informal, relaxed and friendly environment. The information is also used for our introductory services to establish suitable introductions. The information we collect about you includes :-

  • First and last name

  • Date of birth

  • Mailing Address

  • Email Address

  • Telephone/Mobile Number

  • Gender

  • Age

  • Occupation

  • Lifestyle information

Why We Collect Personal Information

Social 8 uses the information that we collect from you for two primary reasons.

Firstly, we collect information from you in order to help us to personalise events so you attend events and dinners with people who are potentially more compatible, helping you improve the chances of meeting new people whose company you may enjoy.

The information we collect for these purposes will not be shared with any other members of the service. Further details regarding our treatment of this information is provided below.

Secondly, we use some of the information we collect from you to enable other members to contact you should you request this. As detailed in our Membership Agreement, we prefer to provide only mobile phone numbers to other members, however, for those members who do not have a mobile, we will provide other members with your preferred contact telephone number or email address. We will not disclose your last name to any member of the Social 8 service, we may however, in the event that it is necessary to avoid confusion between two members with the same first name, use the first letter of your last name to assist in identifying you.

Apart from the reasons above, we use other personal information provided voluntarily by you to better understand our members and to help us improve and promote our services. The information is also used should you wish to participate in the introductory services.

Testimonials may be posted on our website and included in emails to members to promote the service. Social 8 assumes, unless otherwise informed, that both parties mentioned, having been asked to agree to the posting of the testimonial, have agreed to the testimonial to be used in this way.

Complaints made against members are investigated as appropriate. The fact of a complaint may be recorded and details of the complaint retained in case of future complaints against the same member.

We Will Not Share Your Private Information

With the exception of contact information detailed above, or general lifestyle information for the introductory services, we will not share with any third party other than our business partners, or make publicly available the private information you have provided to us.

We may however disclose sufficient contact information in special circumstances where we have sufficient reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who has violated our Membership Agreement, or may have caused injury to or interference with our rights, property, our members or anyone else who could have been harmed by certain activities. We may also disclose contact information to any legal authority when we believe, in good faith, when the law requires it or if we are legally required to do so. Thankfully in nearly 10 years of service, this situation has never arisen.

If a complaint is made about a member, we may advise that member that a complaint against him/her has been received. We will not disclose who made the complaint without the express permission of the person who made the complaint. If however, we suspect that the member would be able to identify who made the complaint, we will not advise that a complaint has been made unless we have your express permission.

Email

Social 8 may sell, rent or loan your email to its affiliates and business partners. The email address you provide to us during the registration process is used for the following purposes :-

1. To provide you with contact details of members with whom you obtain a mutual match with following a Social 8 Introduction or dinner.

2. To periodically notify you of any up coming Social 8 events and to provide you with any relevant information about our services.

3. Our emails are sent from a system via an automated mechanism. These messages are never made available to the public. You are the only person who can view or read its contents. You will stop receiving emails from Social 8 once your membership is terminated, cancelled or otherwise expires.

Security

Our website www.social8adelaide.com, has security measures in place to protect against the loss, misuse and tampering of the information under our control. However, we are not able to guarantee that all data transmission over the Internet will be completely secure. We will however, attempt to protect your personal information but cannot warrant the security of any information you provide to us over our web page. Once we receive your transmission or other personal information you provide to us, we attempt to ensure that your personal information remains secure.
