Privacy Policy
Club Intimate believes strongly in the privacy of all its members. As part of our service we must collect personal information. In doing so, we ensure that the information given is kept private and confidential.

Information Collection and Use
Club Intimate collects user submitted information such as email address and age to authenticate users and to send notifications to those users relating to the Club Intimate service. Club Intimate also collects other profile data including but not limited to: personal interests, gender, age, education and occupation in order to assist users in finding and communicating with each other.

User Profile information including members’ pictures and usernames are displayed to people in order to facilitate user interaction in the Club Intimate community. Email addresses are used for the purposes of inviting new friends to join Club Intimate, to add users to members’ friends’ network, and to send notifications related to the service. With the exception of inviting friends, adding friends, and notifications, a user's email address is not shared or displayed to people within a user's personal network. Users within a personal network communicate on Club Intimate with each other through the Club Intimate service, without disclosing their email addresses. Users’ full names are never directly revealed to other members. To facilitate searching and finding friends and acquaintances on the service, Club Intimate allows users to search for other members using usernames and email addresses.

We may also use a user's email address to send updates, a newsletter or news regarding Club Intimate or associated entities. Associated services are strictly limited to entities related by directorship or business management - and - where a data sharing arrangement has been agreed. Users may choose not to receive email of this type by changing their setting in the user ‘Account Settings’ or by unsubscribing from the newsletter they no longer wish to receive.

From time to time, Club Intimate or a partner may sponsor a promotion, sweepstake or contest on Club Intimate. Users may be asked to provide personal information including name, email address or home address or to answer questions in order to participate. We may transfer personal information to certain ad partners that you have explicitly requested to receive information from. It will be clear at the point of collection who is collecting the personal information and whose privacy statement will apply.

Invitations and Other Communications to Non-members
Club Intimate members can invite friends to join the service by sending invitation emails via our automated invitation system. Club Intimate stores the email addresses that members provide so that the respondents may be added to the friend's list of the member sending the invitations. Club Intimate does not sell these email addresses or use them to send any other communication besides invitations. Recipients of invitations from Club Intimate may contact Club Intimate to request the removal of their information from our database.

Club Intimate members may also store email addresses of people they know in their internal Club Intimate address book and may also choose to send invitations and other communications to those addresses.

You may prevent Club Intimate email invitations and other messages from being sent to any email address you control by sending a single email with the subject "BLOCK" to privacy@clubintimate.com

Please note that the email must come from the account you wish to block.

The Club Intimate Exchange

Each member site in the Club Intimate Exchange is solely responsible for upholding its obligations under their respective code of conduct and privacy policies. The Site is a member site of the Club Intimate Exchange, which means that you will have access to that pooled database of personal public profiles (and in return, they shall have access to your public profile information). For you, this means more convenience, more successful searches, more communication, and more matches.

Except as described above, Club Intimate will not disclose personal information to any third party without a user's explicit permission unless required by law. Club Intimate reserves the right to transfer personal information to a successor in interest that acquires rights to that information as a result of the sale of Club Intimate or substantially all of its assets to that successor in interest. For more information see the ‘Changes in Our Privacy Policy’ section below.

Changes in Our Privacy Policy
From time to time we may make changes to our Privacy Policy.

A User is bound by any minor changes to the policy when she or he uses the site after those changes have been posted. If, however, we are going to use users’ personally identifiable information in a manner materially different from that stated at the time of collection we will notify by posting a notice on our Web site for 30 days.
