OSDD Services Ltd. is dedicated to being transparent about what data we collect about you and how we use it.
Please note that to improve the opportunity to find a dating partner, our Services are operated through a number of other websites in addition to this Website (which may include all those operated by OSDD Services Ltd. or any subsidiary of OSDD Services Ltd.).
This means that when you sign up to our Services, any content you post to the Website will be searchable and available to users of the Services who access it via different websites in the same network as the Website.
