NOTE: WE DO NOT CONDUCT BACKGROUND CHECKS ON THE MEMBERS OR SUBSCRIBERS OF THIS WEBSITE.
Although PrideRoommates.com is a roommate service primary dedicated to the gay and lesbian community we accept members from all backgrounds and strive to simply be a meeting place not unlike any other meeting place where you can find friends and potential roommates.
our online privacy is important to us. To better protect your privacy we
provide this notice explaining our online information practices and the choices
you can make about the way your information is collected and used.
This privacy notice discloses the privacy practices or this website.
Types of Information We Collect And How We Use It:
This website takes every precaution to protect our users' information. When
users submit sensitive information via the website, your information is
protected both online and off-line.
When our registration/order form asks users to enter sensitive information
(such as credit card number), that information is encrypted and is protected
with the best encryption software in the industry - SSL. While on a secure page,
such as our order form, the lock icon on the bottom of Web browsers such as
Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer becomes locked, as opposed to
un-locked, or open, when you are just 'surfing'.
While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also
do everything in our power to protect user-information off-line. All of our
users' information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is
restricted in our offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a
specific job (for example, our billing clerk or a customer service
representative) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The
servers that we store personally identifiable information on are kept in a
secure environment, behind a locked cage.
We use IP Addresses for statistical and system administration purposes.
IP addresses are anonymously logged to track a users session. We do not link IP
addresses with any personally identifiable information. This means that a users
session will be logged but that user will remain anonymous to us. We can and
will us IP address to identify a user when necessary to enforce our terms of
service or protect our site, network, advertisers or users.
This website uses session cookies to prevent banner
network and affiliate system abuse and cheating. This cookie does not contain
any personally identifiable information about users.
This website does not require a user to accept or use browser cookies. Most
web browsers will allow you the option to reject cookies or to choose which
cookies to accept.
