What Personal Information We Collect and How We Collect It
In order to provide our Services, we collect information about you that, alone or in combination with other information, can be used to identify you as an individual (“personal information”). What personal information we collect and process depends on how and why you interact with us.
When you register for an account or subscribe to any of our Services, we collect a variety of information about you, including your contact information such as your name, email address, contact number, mailing address, date of birth, financial information, dating preferences, etc.
It’s your choice whether to include sensitive information on your profile and to make that sensitive information public. Please do not post or add personal data to your profile that you would not want to be publicly available.
We may periodically conduct voluntary member surveys. We encourage our members to participate in such surveys because they provide us with important information regarding the improvement of our Services.
When you access or or use our Services, we automatically collect information about how you access and use our Websites and Services. The information we collect includes your IP address, browser type, Internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, and number of clicks. If you use a mobile device to access or download any of our Services, we may also collect device information (such as your mobile device ID, model and manufacturer), operating system, and version information. While this information taken together could be considered personal information, we do not use this information to personally identify you.
We use “cookies” to keep track of some types of information while you are accessing or using our Services. Cookies are very small files placed on your computer, and they allow us to count the number of visitors to our Websites and distinguish repeat visitors from new visitors. They also allow us to save user preferences and track user trends. We rely on cookies for the proper operation of our Websites; therefore if your browser is set to reject all cookies, the website will not function properly.
We use analytics cookies to record usage data about our users (e.g. which users have visited which of our subpages, etc.) and to evaluate this information statistically.
We also allow third parties to collect our users’ data through advertising cookies or pixels placed on our website. These cookies allow us and other third parties to provide you with interest-based advertising that is based on an analysis of your usage behavior (e.g., which banner ads you have clicked on, which subpages you have visited, etc.) on the internet and our Services.
We collect and use statistical information about your use of our Services to make it more user-friendly, to understand our market share, to conduct other market research and to make sure that we display relevant advertisements for you. To this end, we work with various authorized service providers; and we use analytics tools in our website.
Promotional e-mail messages we send you may contain code that enables our database to track your usage of the e-mails, including whether the e-mail was opened and what links (if any) were clicked.
How and Why We Use Your Personal Information
We use the data that we have about you to provide and personalize our Services, including with the help of automated systems and inferences we make, so that our Services (including ads) can be more relevant and useful to you and others.
We use information that we collect about you or that you provide to us, including any personal information, to:

Mobile Push Notifications
We will send you push notifications if you choose to receive them for purposes of receiving notice of matches for our Service, letting you know when someone has sent you a message, or for other Service-related matters. If you wish to opt-out from receiving these types of communications you may turn them off at the device level.
If Information is Not Provided
If you do not provide us with the personal information we request, this may limit our ability to fulfill the applicable purpose for collection and the services we are able to provide you. For example, we may not be able to consider or process your payment, match you with other users or provide a particular service you have requested.
Disclosure of Your Personal Information
As an integral part of providing the Bdub Service, we will disclose your profile information (including, but not limited to, last login date, whether you are currently online, your compatibility score) to your matches. Photos and other profile information posted by you will be available to premium subscribers that are matched with you. We never share your contact information with your matches.
In general we may share personal information we collect:
- With affiliated and unaffiliated service providers who help us perform and deliver our Services, subject to confidentiality agreements, including: customer care agents; technology assistants; service fulfillment; form processing; website management and hosting; information technology and security; email and newsletter delivery; advertisement partners and corporate sponsors; auditing; collection agencies; and credit card processing;
- With the appropriate authorities if we believe disclosure is necessary and appropriate to prevent physical, financial, or other harm, injury, or loss, including to protect against fraud or credit risk;
- With legal, governmental, or judicial authorities as instructed or required by those authorities and applicable laws, or in relation to a legal activity, such as in response to a subpoena or investigation of suspected illicit or illegal activities, or where we believe in good faith that users may be engaged in illicit or illegal activities, or where we are bound by contract or law to enable a network partner to comply with applicable laws;
- With necessary third parties in connection with, or during negotiations for, an acquisition, merger, asset sale, or other similar business transfer that involves all or substantially all of our assets or functions where personal information is transferred or shared as part of the business assets;
- With your consent or at your direction, such as when you choose to share information or publicly post content and reviews (for example, social media posts); and
If in our sole opinion, we suspect or have reason to suspect that the information involves a party who may be the victim of abuse in any form, we reserve the right, but have no obligation, to disclose it to the involved authorities. Abuse may include, without limitation, elder abuse, child abuse, spousal abuse, neglect, or domestic violence. Information may be disclosed to authorities that we, in our sole discretion, deem appropriate to handle such disclosure. Appropriate authorities may include, without limitation, law enforcement agencies, child protection agencies, or court officials. You hereby acknowledge and agree that we are permitted to make such disclosure.
You acknowledge and agree that we may disclose information you provide if required to do so by law, or if we, in our sole discretion, believe that disclosure is reasonable to (1) comply with the law, requests or orders from law enforcement, or any legal process (whether or not such disclosure is required by applicable law); (2) protect or defend Bdub’s, or a third party’s, rights or property; or (3) protect someone’s health or safety, such as when harm or violence against any person (including you) is threatened.
We only accept registrations to our Services from users who are 18 years or older (or the age of majority in applicable jurisdictions), and any information we may receive from users we believe to be under the age of 18 will be purged from our database.
We store information in a combination of electronic storage facilities, paper-based files and other records. While we cannot guarantee your personal information is completely secure at all times, we have administrative, organizational, technical, and physical security measures in place to help protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of the information collected and processed.
You are responsible for your safety when meeting users in person. Bdub will not be responsible for any damages, accidents and loss of money and properties.

BDUB Ratings and Reviews Policy
How ratings are calculated
Ratings and Reviews for matches and dates, showing the 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 star ratings, are calculated based on the users’ current average rating score from other users rate and reviews.
What others will see when you leave a review
Most ratings and reviews are visible to everyone. Reviews will only show your first name and the date you wrote it.
Guidelines on Ratings and Reviews
Ratings and reviews are meant to be helpful and trustworthy. Reviewing matches or dates on the app is a great way to share helpful insight to other users who will match and date that same person. This will also help the community to be more accountable in their actions.
- Make your reviews useful and informative. Be factual.
- Try to include both positives and “to improve”.
- Keep it readable; check grammar and spelling, and don’t use excessive capitalization and punctuation.
- Be nice to others. Appreciate good things about the person.
- Don’t post fake or inaccurate reviews. You’ll be banned.
- Don’t post reviews to mislead other users or manipulate the rating.
- Don’t post reviews on behalf of others.
- Don’t post personal or confidential information.
- Don’t post obscene, profane, or offensive language.
- Don’t post reviews that harass, bully, or attack others. Don’t promote violence, condone violence, or incite hatred toward an individual or group.
If you have been reported violating these guidelines, we’ll notify you that your account may be permanently banned.
If you want to report a specific review for violations, take a screenshot and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org
