What data does Love Swingers collect?
When you register with us, Love Swingers collects a small amount of ‘Personal Data’ that is vital to your registration with us. ‘Personal data’ is any information relating to an identified or identifiable individual. That means any information that could be used, on its own or in conjunction with other data, to identify an individual, about you or your partner who register with Love Swingers.

- Date you verified your email address
Your registration information is stored securely in a database and in plain text, with the exception of your password, which is securely one-way encrypted and salted to prevent unauthorized access to your own personal login area. It is important to ensure that your password is strong, as Love Swingers cannot view or retrieve passwords on your behalf – you can do this using our Forgotten Password request form.
Contact form submissions
When you submit any of the contact forms on the Love Swingers website, your submission is sent to us vie email. The details we collect are specifically those found on the form you fill in, and also your Username if you are registered and logged in at the time of submitting the form.
The details are kept only as long as they are relevant, and are removed completely once the request/submission has been dealt with. We do not store submission details any longer they are required, and details are never passed on to any third party or non-Love Swingers contact (unless specifically requested/consented by the owner of those details).

Love Swingers installs the SSL Certificate onto its web server to create a secure session with browsers. Once a secure connection is in place, all web traffic between the web server and the web browser will be secure. Love Swingers has always implemented a secure certificate so that you can rest assured the data you submit through our website is encrypted and kept away from prying eyes.
