Privacy

The Skinny

We know privacy is a big deal these days. Any, you have good reason to be concerned about what is collected, and where. Let's be clear. This is a small website. We only collect what is absolutely necessary. Your information is not seen by anyone unless you show it to them. We installed a standard SSL Certificate in May of 2015 to protect your data. AstroDates does one thing, and it does it very well. AstroDates compares to relationship between two birthdays in Universal Time. To do this it needs Month, Day, Year and Hour and Minute, and City and State (US) or City and Country (outside the US). The time is important because the Earth is spinning faster than 1,000 miles per hour. Place is important. (Noon in San Francisco is the same Universal Time as 1PM in Denver, 2PM in Chicago or 3PM in New York.)

If you have questions about deleting or correcting your personal data please contact us here. At AstroDates.com we have a few fundamental principles:

• We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it.

• We don’t share your personal information with ANYONE except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our legal rights.

• We don’t store personal information unless required for the on-going operation of our services.

Your information is NOT visible to the public. It is NOT seen by search engines and is kept private. AstroDates is encrypted with a standard SSL Certificate. The green lock in the address bar indicates that the your data is secure. This SSL was installed in May, 2015. If you followed a non-secure link, you can copy the secure link and paste it into your browser address bar "https://astrodates.com/" yourself, or you can refresh the page, by clicking here.

Below is our privacy policy which incorporates these goals:

It is the policy of AstroDates to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our Website.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, AstroDates.com collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. AstroDates.com’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how our visitors use the Website.

AstroDates.com does NOT collect potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and we do NOT have blogs.

What We Collect and Why

AstroDates compares two birthdays. In order to provide useful reports, we require at least two sets of accurate birth data in Universal Time. (Noon in San Francisco is the same Universal Time as 1PM in Denver, 2PM in Chicago, or 3PM in New York.) This means we need to collect the Month, Day, Year and the Hour and Minute, and the City and State (US) or Country (outside the US.) for each birthday. We have found that a difference of even an hour can mean a change of 20 or more points in the compatibility score. The same is true for a change in location. This means that inaccurate birth data is nearly useless.

Protecting Yourself

AstroDates visitors may use pseudonyms or initials or any other non-identifying information about themselves or their partners. Further, AstroDates visitors may use proxy servers or VPN services to protect their data.

Aggregated Statistics

AstroDates.com does use Google Analytics for gathering data about how visitors use our website. We may also monitor or measure average compatibility scores. AstroDates.com will NOT display any personal information publicly or provide it to others. AstroDates does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

AstroDates.com does NOT disclose potentially personally-identifying or personally-identifying information to anyone, including employees, contractors or organizations. The only exceptions are:
• to comply with a subpoena,

We primarily use blogs to communicate this information, so we expect to keep email to a minimum. If you voluntarily send us a comment, we reserve the right to publish it. AstroDates.com takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
