Wouldlovetogo wants to ensure that all of its members have a positive and safe experience and therefore your personal safety should be your top priority. You should always be cautious and use your best judgment when communicating with or meeting new people, both online and offline. Below are tips that can help you have a fun and safe experience whilst using wouldlovetogo.
When communicating with other members, you should:
Take care when deciding whether to share personal information that could reveal your identity.
In the first instance we advise that you do not include your last name, e-mail address, home address, phone number, specific place of work, or any other identifying information on your profile or initial emails.
Avoid sharing your full name, email address, place of work, address, phone number or other identifying information in the initial stages of meeting new friends on the WouldLoveTogo.com website.
We advise that you stop communicating with anyone who attempts to pressure you into providing your personal or financial information or in any way attempts to trick you into providing it.
Use an anonymous third-party email address for your contacting purposes. Your communications on wouldlovetogo are configured in a way to help protect your identity until you choose to reveal it. However, hackers can breach nearly any technology and you should still use extra care in your communications.
Trust your instincts and immediately stop communicating with anyone who makes you feel uncomfortable or apprehensive.
WOULDLOVETOGO DOES NOT ROUTINELY SCREEN, INQUIRE INTO THE BACKGROUND OF, OR ATTEMPT TO VERIFY INFORMATION PROVIDED BY OUR USERS, NEITHER DO WE CONDUCT CRIMINAL SCREENINGS OF OUR USERS. Providing background checks could lead to a false sense of security since databases of criminal convictions may not be up to date, not all convictions appear in background screenings and criminals may circumvent even the most sophisticated background screenings. Background checks on all members would also incur a considerable cost which would be passed onto members.
We recommend that you conduct your own research before sharing any personal information with, or meeting, another person. You can do this by searching for the person's name via an Internet search engine, or contacting your local municipalities to obtain public information or using a paid service to obtain a full background report.
It is important to use common sense and caution with every person you communicate with using our services. If any information a person provides you doesn't make sense, conflicts with other information that was provided or makes you apprehensive, you should end the communication.
When meeting someone for the first time, you should always take precautions such as the following:
Meet in public places at a time when many people are around.
Use your own transportation to arrive at the meeting. Never have the person pick you up from your home or office.
Tell a friend or family member where you are going, who you are meeting, when you will return and arrange a time to check in with them.
If possible, ensure you have a mobile phone with you so that you can immediately contact emergency services or a friend for help if necessary.
Avoid drinking alcoholic drinks and never leave your drink unsupervised.
Don't leave your personal belongings (mobile phones, purses, wallets) unattended.
Never worry or feel embarrassed about your behaviour if you feel uncertain about your personal safety or apprehensive. Your safety is far more important than the other person's opinion of you.
If you suspect another member is trying to scam you, we encourage you to stop the communication and report them to us and/or blocking them. Most scams involve one or more of the following:
A user contacts you from somewhere far away, often in another country.
Scammers often refuse to meet face-to-face or talk on the phone. Instead, they would like to send you SMS messages, use your personal email or meet you on a video chat website.
A user directs you to a pornographic site.
A user asks you for money (this is often in the context of an urgent need such as travel back to their home country, hospital bills, emergency medication, obtaining official documents such as a visa or as a short term loan to recover from a financial setback.
A user tries to sell products or services online or offers you a job opportunity.
A user claims love for you right away.
We also encourage you to report any profiles that contain obscene, pornographic, abusive, violent or otherwise offensive photos or content. By reporting such violations, you not only protect yourself but also help other wouldlovetogo users.
