Users and Guests
What information does WannaMeet collect?
WannaMeet is a meeting place for adults, and we provide that service by operating a social network site offering users the opportunity to connect to our global community of users.
To join the WannaMeet network you will have to complete our online registration form (website, mobile apps or social apps), where we ask you to provide us with information about you such as your name, your email address, your gender, your date of birth, your location details. You also have the opportunity to provide other details about yourself, but these are optional. Because you control your user profile, these details are available to you at any time by accessing your “Profile” page, which gives you the chance to correct or update your information at any time by just logging in to WannaMeet.
Once you have created a Profile, we will automatically track certain information such as your IP and email addresses. We may from time to time allow our employees to use the product for testing and user engagement purposes.
For safety and security and to ensure you have the best possible user experience, we require users to verify their accounts and might ask for your phone number.
What information does WannaMeet collect about me if I’m under 18?
You can only become a member of WannaMeet if your aged 18 or over or the age of majority in the country in which you reside if that happens to be greater than 18.

Nor do we knowingly market to children, minors or anyone under the age of 18. If you are less than 18 years old, we request that you do not submit information to us. If we become aware that a child, minor or anyone under the age of 18 has registered with us and provided us with personal information, we will take steps to terminate that person’s registration and delete their Profile information from WannaMeet. If we do delete a Profile because you violated our no children rules, we may retain your email and IP address to ensure that you do not try to get around our rules by creating a new Profile.
