"Cookies" are small pieces of information that are stored by your browser on your computer's hard drive. PickDate uses cookies in several ways. We use cookies to allow you to login without having to type your login name each time. Instead, only your password is needed to access the system.

Please be aware that we may have links on our site which may collect personally identifiable information about you. This Privacy Policy does not cover the information practices or policies of such Web sites.

Who will the information be shared with, if anyone?

We do not disclose your email address nor do we sell it or make it available to any third party.  Notwithstanding, when you send an introductory note through our system to another member, your email address is included in that note so that the recipient can respond to you.  Further, PickDate.com may contact you via email from time to time, to inform you about upgrades and improvements to the system and of special promotions or events.  The only way to remove yourself from such mailing is to suspend your membership.
