These details shall remain within the boundaries of the privacy laws and the common sense. The features provide these data are explained on the Subscription page. You will be notified if they change.
Here, we discuss only the general guidelines:
Additional details, we may show, never will be personally identifiable such as your email address, phone number, real name, payment details, or any other personally identifiable information, regardless the Subscription of your visitor.
We may show our paid members whether you opened the messages they sent you.
We may display the approximate amount of our members whom you sent messages during a certain period. For example we may display: “They sent messages to more than ten members in the last month”.
We will never provide any member with usernames whom you exchanged messages with. We will never reveal demographic statistics about the recipients of your sent messages. We may show only approximate values about the volume of your messaging. We may show how much (what percentage) of the conversations were initiated by you.
We will not reveal the amount of time you spent on our Dating Site. Neither will we display how many times you signed in, not even as an approximate value.
We may show others, using your public “is looking for” data, what percentage of our members might be interesting for you.
We will not show others what percentage of our members might be interested in you. We are against any (public) kind of popularity information or contests on Diamonds Dating. (See below.)
We may show you, or other members, additional details only to help in selecting candidates for a long-term relationship. Helping with finding a serious relationship is the sole reason of the existence of these features.
We will listen to and consider your feedback.
No public “popularity contests” but private positive feedback
More or less every kind of popularity contests on dating platforms are considered wrong in our opinion. We will not proclaim either “The beauty of the month” or “The guy the most girls responds to” kind of things. “The most often diamonded member of the week” will also remain a hidden secret forever, each week.
If you are looking for the platform focuses on improving your self-confidence and helping you in dating, you are in the right place.
While we may display various values on the profiles on our members, none of them will be any kind of judgement or popularity rating. For example: displaying how often a given member responds to their messages tells you only one thing: how likely you’ll get a response.
We will not display the percentage of your visitors who initiated contact with you, or bookmarked or liked your profile, ever.
On the other hand, if you “went through” the automatic filters of a selective member of ours, we will tell you how awesome you are. Not that we didn’t know it before, but it won’t hurt to hear read it.
We analyze and use the data we collect, by our own anti-spam and anti-fraud system. We do not use third party tools for analyzing your messages, your personal information or your activities on our Dating Site. We do not send third parties information related to your messages or profile data, not even in a statistical or anonymized form.
We may use the results of our internal analysis to prevent suspicious activities from happening on our Dating Site. We may use the result of the analysis to protect you and all of our legitimate members.
Our automated anti-fraud system recognizes certain activities. It does not recognize human intentions. It may mistakenly block members exhibiting activities similar to sending spam. You accept this.
We do not sell or rent out your personal information to third parties without your explicit consent. We do not send you emails about third party offers.

This can be used to tell whether the given email address has a user account on Diamonds Dating.

This person may reset your password, not only for Diamonds Dating, but for any website you signed up to. This remains true if, in the future, we allow you to turn off the “auto sign in from our emails” on the Settings page.
