Therefore we do not recommend that you disclose your Backpacker Dating password to any third parties. If you choose to share your email address and password or your information with third parties, you are responsible for all actions taken with this information and therefore you should review that third party’s privacy policy.

6. The Security of Your Information

We work diligently to protect the security of your personal information. It is important for you to protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your computer by ensuring you log off when you have finished visiting Backpacker Dating using a shared computer.

7. Cookies

Cookies are small pieces of information that are stored in a browser-related file on your computer’s hard drive when you use our app. We use cookies to improve the member experience. Cookies are widely used on many major apps and websites.

8. Other information We Collect

We use additional information to do internal research on our users’ demographics, interests, and behavior to better understand and serve you and our community. This information may include the URL that you just came from (whether this URL is on our site or not), what browser you are using, and your IP address. Users who login have their IP addresses recorded. This information can be used to track users who abuse the Backpacker Dating system and will only be provided to legal authorities in cases of suspected fraud or other illegal behaviour. IP addresses can be used, in conjunction with an Internet Service Provider, to find the internet account of a user and, ultimately, further information to identify a user. This information will not be provided to other members or non-authorised parties.

If you send us personal correspondence, such as emails or letters, or if other users or third parties send us correspondence about your activities or postings on Backpacker Dating we may collect such information into a file specific to you.
