PRIVACY POLICY
Welcome to Karma Dating! This website is operated for your pleasure and security by Karma Tech, LLC. Karma Dating is an online dating and compatibility site that uses horoscopes, birth charts, and astrological profiling to help you meet others. There is no limit to the variety of exciting relationships you can develop using our techniques. No matter how the communications between you and another member may trend, it will be your choice and the other party’s choice whether to develop the contact further. We therefore rely on your good sense, maturity and sound judgment in social relationships to conduct yourself in honorably and courteously.
This privacy policy informs you how we use your personal information that you provide us in the signup process of opening a login user name into the site and in that process of becoming a subscribed member, who we share it with, how we safeguard it and under what circumstances we might release a part or all of it. Karma Tech, LLC, respects your privacy and will remain transparent in informing you the what use we may make of your private information. BY USING THE KARMA DATING WEBSITE, WHETHER AS A USER, VISITOR OR PAID SUBSCRIBER, YOU ARE VOLUNTARILY AND WILLINGLY ACCEPTING AND AGREEING TO THE POLICIES STATED IN THIS PRIVACY POLICY. JUST AS WITH THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS, YOU MUST AGREE TO THESE POLICIES OR YOU AGREE TO EXIT THE SITE AND NOT USE IT IN THE FUTURE.
1.0 ENCRYPTED, SECURE SOCKET LAYER PROTECTION:
With that depth of personal inter-communications occurring among our members, we are very conscious of the need to protect our members’ privacy and to exalt security protections over all else. We provide the platform for a popular, time-proven method of finding human compatibility between consenting adults. As the paid subscriber, you must cooperate to protect your own privacy and that of your contacts. We give you a comprehensive framework of technical and professionally-designed protections that maximize your privacy rights when using our site. The financial information and data that you give us when signing up and subscribing is protected by industry-standard encryption technologies. It is SSL-encrypted (Secure Socket Layer). In addition, we have appropriate security measures in place in our physical facilities to protect against the loss or misuse of information that we have collected from you.
1.5 NO RESALE OR DISCLOSURE OF INFORMATION TO THIRD PARTIES:
We do not share or otherwise disclose any personal information, including your name, address, or email addresses with other organizations except where you authorize it and/or direct us to do so. Only a few selected personnel have access to the personally identifiable information provided by visitors and subscribing members to our site. From time to time, we may send you information from other like-minded organizations whose products or services we think subscribers might find interesting, but we do not exchange, trade, rent, or give email lists to third parties.
2.0 COOKIE POLICY
We use cookies on our site to customize the experience of our visitors and to support some necessary functions. We also use cookies to better understand how our visitors use our site. Cookies are not shared or revealed to other sites. We do not look at cookies on your machine for other sites.
You also have choices with respect to cookies. By modifying your browser preferences, you have the choice to accept all cookies, to be notified when a cookie is set, or to reject all cookies. In Internet Explorer, you can refuse all cookies by clicking “Tools”, “Internet Options”, “Privacy”, and selecting “Block all cookies” using the sliding selector. In Firefox, you can adjust your cookies settings by clicking “Tools”, “Options” and “Privacy”. For more information on how to modify your browser settings to block or filter cookies, see www.cookiecentral.com/faq/. However, note that if you reject some or all cookies, your experience at our sites and on other sites throughout the World Wide Web may not be complete. In addition, if you do not allow cookies, you will not be able to take advantage of personalized content delivery offered by other Internet sites or us. Blocking cookies will have a negative impact upon the usability of some websites, including possibly the Karma Dating website, and that is why we have adopted a policy that you must agree to the use of cookies as part of the terms of your use of KARMA DATING.
2.1 BROWSER INFORMATION COLLECTED ON OUR WEBSITE
As with any website operator, Karma Dating analyzes our website logs to constantly improve the value of our website. We use an external service to provide real-time reporting to us and our authorized agents of browser accesses to our site, including page views, unique views, unique visitors, repeat visitors, frequency of visits, and peak-volume traffic periods. We do not use this service to gather, request, record, require, collect or track any Internet users’ personally identifying information. See the following paragraph for further information.
2.2 GOOGLE COOKIES
In addition, Karma Dating may use Google Analytics or comparable services to analyse the use of the website. Google Analytics and similar services generate data regarding the use of the website by storing cookies on users’ computers. Google Analytics summarizes the data for us so that we may make decisions to offer our services to more potential users. Google also stores and uses this information. Google’s privacy policy is available on the Internet where you can access it. Any issues with respect to Google cookies must go to Google or other provider and not to Karma Dating. Additionally, Gifmo or similar services may from time to time publish Google AdSense or other interest-based advertisements on this website. These are tailored to reflect your interests. To determine your interests, the service will track your behaviour across the web using cookies. You can view, delete or add interest categories associated with your browser using Google’s Ads Preference Manager, available at: http://www.google.com/ads/preferences/. You can opt out of the AdSense partner network cookie at: http://www.google.com/privacy_ads.html. However, this opt-out mechanism uses a cookie, and if you clear the cookies from your browser, the opt-out will not be maintained. To ensure retaining an opt-out, you may use the Google browser plug-in available at: http://www.google.com/ads/preferences/plugin.
We honor “Do Not Track” messages from your browser but the implementation of do-not-tract protocols may affect your ability to effectively use the website services. If you have any questions in this respect you may contact Karma Dating at: ____________________________
3.0 PRIVACY OF OUR EMAIL LISTS:
Karma Dating maintains email lists to keep our members informed about special policies, changes in website protocol, promotions and notifications required by law or by our Terms and Conditions. You may opt out of receiving most emails, but membership requires that you receive those emails sent by us as important website notifications and those required by law. In addition, we do not share the email addresses on our lists with outside organizations. Only Karma Dating staff and authorized agents have access to personally identifiable information provided by visitors and members to our site.
4.0 CHILDREN’S PRIVACY AND MEMBERSHIP REQUIREMENTS
Because we care about the safety and privacy of children online, we comply with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (COPPA). COPPA and its accompanying FTC regulation establish United States federal law that protects the privacy of children using the Internet. This law is applied not only in the U.S. but in many countries internationally.
You must be 18 years of age to use our website. The law generally prevents someone under the age of 18 to be legally bound to a contract. Because such contracts are unenforceable, we will not accept membership from minors under the age of 18. The use of fraudulent identification to register as a member will result the expulsion of the person from the site and the loss, without partial refund, of membership dues and other funds held by Karma Dating.
Pursuant to COPPA, we do not knowingly collect contact or personal information from children under 13. Our sites are not intended to solicit information of any kind from children under 13, and we have designed our sites to block our knowing acceptance of information from children under 13 whenever age related information is requested. It is possible that by fraud or deception by others we may receive information given to us or pertaining to children under 13. If we are notified of this, as soon as we verify the information, we will immediately obtain parental consent or otherwise delete the information from our servers. If you want to notify us of our receipt of information by children under 13, please do so by e-mailing us at : ______________
5.0 POSTINGS AND SUBMISSIONS ARE NOT PRIVATE OR CONFIDENTIAL
Karma Dating cannot actively monitor and regulate, and is not responsible for, the dissemination and use of posted or submitted content that you or other subscribed members or users post on the Karma Dating website. Karma Dating is not responsible for the actions of third parties or others using the website in any capacity. Karma dating cannot reasonably attempt to control and follow the treatment and use of such information once the individual posts information or engages in a chat or email interchange with another member or members. Remember that users or members who see your messages, profiles or any content you provide can always save it by various methods. Thus, you are advised to please use common sense and do not send messages or posts that you wouldn’t want someone to share or save. You, as the subscribed member or user of the site, agree and acknowledge that you engage in submitting profiles, content, chatting with others, emails with others and any other contacts that you make through the Karma Dating website, AT YOUR OWN RISK AND YOU AGREE AND ACKNOWLEDGE THAT KARMA DATING IS UNABLE TO MONITOR OR CONTROL THE INTERACTIONS AND INTERCHANGES THAT YOU OR OTHERS MAY HAVE WITH EACH OTHER AS A NATURAL USE OF THE PLATFORM THAT WE PROVIDE. YOU RECOGNIZE THAT IT IS UP TO YOU TO USE COMMON SENSE TO PROTECT YOUR SECURITY AND PRIVACY IN ALL RESPECTS.
5.2 DELETION OF MESSAGES AND POSTS
Even for messages, photos, or other posts scheduled to be quickly deleted or to “self-destruct” — should that technology ever be a part of the website — there is still a window during which that material may be captured by different means. Karma Dating is not responsible for such lapses and the Member agrees to carry the risk of that happening. You release Karma Dating, its employees, agents, owners, shareholders, members, assigns, partners and associates from any damages suffered due to material captured by third parties. With respect to deletion, Karma Dating cannot guarantee that messages and corresponding metadata will be deleted within a specific timeframe. Some data may be kept in backup for legal reporting or other mandates. This is true even after we’ve deleted messages and corresponding metadata from our servers. We also are bound to cooperate with legal authorities who make authorized requests for specific information, which may interfere with our normal deletion protocol. It is also well known that digital information does not necessarily disappear 100 percent after it is deleted, and there may be methods that are used to resurrect such information even after deletion.
5.5 TRANSMISSION OF PERSONAL DATA
Users and subscribed members agree and acknowledge that by providing Karma Dating with any personal or proprietary user information through our website, you consent to the transmission of such personal or proprietary user information over domestic or international borders as necessary for processing in accordance with Karma Dating standard business practices, in any countries in which Karma Dating does business.
6.0 LINKED SITES
The user and/or member should be aware that sites that may be linked to Karma Dating may contain transmission of personal data provisions that differ from the provisions provided herein. You consent to us processing and transferring information in and to the United States and other countries whose data-protection and privacy laws may offer fewer protections than those in your home country. Karma Dating is not responsible for such provisions nor for the use that linked sites may put to the transmitted data, and Karma Dating expressly disclaims any and all liability related to such provisions and such usage. You hereby release Karma Dating from any such claims.
6.2 OTHER DISCLOSURES
When Karma Dating discloses your information to third parties pursuant to your authorization or for other permitted reasons, the agent, sub-contractor or business affiliate in question will be obligated to use that personal information in accordance with the terms of this privacy statement. In addition to the disclosures reasonably necessary for the purposes identified elsewhere in this Privacy Policy, Karma Dating may disclose your personal information to the extent that it is required to do so by law, in connection with any legal proceedings or prospective legal proceedings, and in order to establish, exercise or defend its legal rights.
6.3 KARMA DATING WILL SECURE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
Karma Dating will take reasonable technical and organisational precautions to prevent the loss, misuse or alteration of your personal registration information. Karma Dating will store all the personal information you provide on secure servers. Encryption technology protects information relating to electronic transactions on this website. In return for the protections provided by Karma Dating, as aforesaid, you do hereby release Karma Dating, its employees, agents, owners, directors, officers, members and assigns, from any and all liability and do waive your right to make a claim against Karma Dating for losses or damages sustained as a result of a third party invasion or hack of the website that occurs despite the foregoing protections.
6.4 INFORMATION WE COLLECT FROM THIRD PARTIES
We may collect and store information from other users, viewers, or third parties about you. Thus, where Karma Dating is authorized to collect information from the devices of other users, any information about you that appears in that database may be preserved and stored by Gifmo. We may also add to our data base of information about you additional data from third-party sources, and we may combine that with the information we are storing. You give permission for that procedure as a part of your membership and your agreement to this Privacy Policy.

6.5 HOW WE USE INFORMATION
Karma Dating collects information to improve its activities, the volume of users to its site, and to constantly evaluate and implement modifications and changes to improve the technology and the services available to its users. In addition to purposes stated elsewhere in this policy statement,
Karma Dating may also use such information for the following purposes:
• To develop, improve, deliver, maintain, and protect our products and services;
• To communicate with you;
• To monitor and analyze trends and usage;
• To personalize the services by, among other things, suggesting friends or profile information or providing advertisements, content, or features that match member profiles, interests, or previous activities;
• To enhance the safety and security of our services;
• To verify your identity and prevent fraud or other unauthorized or illegal activity;
• The use of information we’ve collected from cookies and other technology to enhance the services and your experience with them;
6.6 SHARING INFORMATION FOR LEGAL REASONS
We may share information with third parties to comply with law or for other legal reasons. We may share information about you if we believe that disclosing the information is needed to comply with valid legal process, government request, or applicable law, rule, or regulation. We may share information to investigate, remedy, or enforce potential violations of the Terms and Conditions. We may share the data to protect the rights, property, and safety of us, our users, or others. It may be necessary to share the information with experts to resolve fraud or security concerns. If Karma Dating engages in an asset sale, financing, or acquisition of some portion of our business by another company, we may share your information with that company before and after the transaction closes. We may also share with third parties, such as advertisers, aggregated or de-identified information that cannot be used to identify you.
6.7 CONTROLLING YOUR SETTINGS AND YOUR INFORMATION
You have control over certain privacy and sharing settings in Karma Dating. You may update or correct most of your basic account and profile information at your discretion, and sometimes only after Karma Dating approves the changes. For example, we may on occasion request that your answer an identification question before we allow you to make changes or update your information. And you may also withdraw permission for Karma Dating to access certain information and devices that you previously granted. You can simply revoke your consent by changing the settings on your device if your device offers those options, or by contacting us if it does not have the option. Of course, if you do that, certain services may lose full functionality. It’s also important to us that you stay in control over whom you communicate with. That’s why we’ve built several tools in settings that let you indicate, among other things, who you want to see your postings, and whether certain activities will be shared or remain private. You will have other options for privacy and blocking as we continue to improve the functionality of the service.
7.0 REVISIONS TO THE PRIVACY POLICY
We will inform you whenever changes or modifications are made to this privacy policy. We may use a variety of informational methods to let you know that a change has been made, including informing you by email, and by providing the latest date of adoption of the provisions of our policy. The methods of communication and providing notice of various changes, new features, new user or viewer policies, and such matters, will vary somewhat, depending on which device is being notified. We will make reasonable efforts to inform you of all changes to the privacy policy and changes to the terms and conditions by timely and effective transmissions to you.
8.0 SPAM POLICY:
As you may be aware, spam is that unsolicited and ever-present material that you must delete or program out of your email box. It may be sent in massive bulk transmissions, and include repetitive messages that tent to be harassing, aggressive, and sometimes obscene. Spam devolves to becoming nonsensical in some instances, which makes one wonder what the sender intends to benefit from an unreadable message. Spam often offers enhancement of bodily parts, come-ons for miraculous products, and other subject matter that make many people feel uncomfortable. Mostly, it is information that few will find welcome and fewer yet will find a reason to read or answer. Sometimes hackers will trespass on an email account and load it up with bulk amounts of spam. That usually requires re-setting one’s account and getting a new password. It’s one of the reasons why you should choose a strong password when you register. Karma Dating does not tolerate spam and will filter out all spam messages. Karma Dating applies automated systems to weed out messages that appear to be spam. Because this is an automated process, mistakes may occur and a legitimate message may be excluded. If you encounter this problem or think you have, please advise the recipient by an alternative means of communication. To reduce this from happening, you can reduce the risk of a message being caught by the spam filters by sending the message in plain text (i.e. The spam filter will not likely catch a legitimate message if you send it in plain text (no HTML), removing any attachments, and ensuring that your messages are scanned for malware before dispatch.
9.0 Inquiries, Questions, Requesting Help, or Making a Complaint
Karma Dating provides several ways to contact our support department to raise inquiries or requests with respect to privacy. You may go to the support section and fill out a request for support form. We will usually respond quickly and usually no longer than 24 hours. We may respond through the Karma Dating website or we may respond to your private email address. In the rare situation where quick action may need to be taken, we may respond by contacting the phone number that you have placed on record. And with respect to mobile-specific inquiries, we may text the response to your device. You may make a complaint about the posts or other behaviour of other users or members. Complaints will be investigated and decisions quickly communicated. If another user or member is violating any of the terms of use specified in the Terms and Conditions, his or her account may be closed or a warning may be issued. We will advise you of any action taken. With technical questions, we will respond by email, and we reserve the option of also providing live chat sessions where issues may be instantly resolved. Other methods of servicing and providing support to members are being reviewed and you will be notified as other options are available or selected for exclusive use. Always check regularly in our Terms and Conditions, this Privacy Policy and on our website for the latest news, modifications, changes or additions.
