The SM.com Network

This PS.com website is part of a network of affiliated dating websites ("Affiliates") that cater to persons with sexually transmitted diseases and sexually transmitted infections ("STDs") (the "SM.com Network"). Although the PS.com Member database is owned and maintained by SM.com, most of the websites within the SM.com Network are not owned or operated by SM.com.

If you create or maintain a profile on the PS.com website and you share your profile or username with other PS.com Members, you are agreeing that your profile may be displayed to such Members. Members cannot access or view your profile without your permission, unless there is a match to the parameters of your profile, which you set and control.

Affiliate Websites

You can see a list of current Affiliate websites via this link. That list of Affiliates may be changed or amended from time to time and the changes reflected in the list referenced above and linked to this Policy. Affiliate websites are landing pages which provide a portal to the PS.com website, which potentially increases the number of individuals with whom you may have a match. Affiliate websites within the SM.com Network have different domain names, but all link to the PS.com website. Anyone accessing the PS.com website through an Affiliate landing page can only view your profile on the PS.com website if they are Members of PS.com and there is a match to your personal parameters, which you set and control, or you choose to provide them with your profile or personal information. SM.com does not make your PS.com profile viewable or accessible on any Affiliate website.

Your Personal Information

SM.com is committed to ensuring that your personal and profile information ("Personal Information") is protected, but you must also take necessary steps to protect your Personal Information from access by persons whom you do not wish to view it, including anyone who is a PS.com Member. This Policy was created to demonstrate SM.com’s commitment to protecting your Personal Information and to inform you how SM.com handles information it receives from you. This Policy only applies to transactions and activities in which you engage and data which is gathered on the PS.com website (including double blind email communications between SM.com or PS.com Members) but does not apply to any non-Affiliate website or offline point of contact or any other company or consumers with whom you may interact and which SM.com does not control.

Entering Into This Legal Agreement

By checking the box at the end of the Service Agreement, you agree to be bound by the terms and conditions of the Service Agreement and this Policy for as long as you are a Member of PS.com and use the PS.com website. If you do not agree to the terms and conditions of this Policy, please do not check the box at the end of the Service Agreement or register as a PS.com Member. If at any point as a PS.com Member you disagree with any of the terms and conditions contained in this Policy or those in the Service Agreement, you may terminate your membership by sending an email to support@PositiveSingles.com.

Other Websites

You need to be aware that when you visit Affiliate websites, (regardless of whether or not they contain the PS.com brand names, trademarks and other intellectual property), they are merely landing pages which provide a portal to the PS.com website. Websites other than Affiliates should have their own privacy policy if they are collecting Personal Information about you.
