WhatDate.co.nz takes your privacy concerns very seriously, and will always take appropriate measures to protect your personal information.

Personal Information

On WhatDate.co.nz you are able to browse the site without giving us any personal information, however we do require personal information if you use some of our services (such as making your own important dates list).

The information we collect on our site may include your name and physical address, and contact details (including your email address). Some services on the site require you to login in which case we will also record a username and password for you.

If we hold personal information (as defined in the Privacy Act 1993) about you, we may use this information to:

  • provide our services for you;
  • promote and market our services to you;

If you do not provide information we reasonably require to us, we may not be able to provide our services to you.

Use of your information

WhatDate.co.nz does not sell or rent your personal information to third parties.

We only collect personal information from you that we need to perform a service you have requested.

If you may use features on the Web site that require us to store your information, such as signing up. In that case we would need to store your email address and login information (username and password).

We may also (at your request) store some personal information to make it easier for you to use our site (e.g you can ask us to remember your details so you don’t have to enter them every time you visit the Web site).

Your contact information is also used to contact you when necessary.

Who can see my information?

Your information is safe and secure and we do not publish any of your information without your approval.

We release account and other personal information only when we believe release is appropriate for legal compliance and law enforcement.

Updating Your Personal Information

WhatDate.co.nz provides you with ways in which you can alter your personal data, including changing your email address, password etc.

You have the right to see the information we hold about you and to correct that information if you believe it is incorrect. This can generally be done directly on our Web site.


From time to time you may receive emails from us - this may be relating to your WhatDate.co.nz account, confirmation of a service request, an email alert about new WhatDate.co.nz or an update about new features, or newsletters.

You are able to "opt out" of most of these emails by either following the unsubscribe link on our emails, or by checking a box on your account preferences.

We do use email as a means of receiving feedback from our members, and we encourage you to email us with your questions or comments.

Control of Your Password

You are responsible for all actions taken with your username, email address and password. We do not recommend that you disclose your WhatDate.co.nz password to any third parties. If you choose to share your username, email address and password or your information with third parties to provide you additional services, you are responsible for all actions taken with this information and therefore you should review that third party's privacy policy.
