All profiles are approved manually. We are working hard to have as many real profiles as possible but there is a chance that there could be a fake profile in our system, because it is difficult to be 100% sure, and we can’t guarantee that all of them are real. It’s because we don’t ask for uploading a photo ID to compare it with the profile photo. We only have filters for IP, email address and a mobile number for duplicate profiles made by the users.Our team of moderators is doing their best at all times to ensure a possibly best and safe system for all who use it, but we can’t take any responsibility for any member’s profile or content. This includes the authenticity of the profiles so there will always be a mix of real and fake profiles.
In order to prevent fraudulent or evasive removal requests, who want to remove real information, without having this right, we need to verify the identity of the person claiming identity theft.
In order to verify the identity of the person claiming the theft, you need to send us a copy of an identity document (passport or identity document) in which your photo, name and surname can be identified, along with several other relevant photos with you, different of those that appear on the site, from which your identity can be confirmed.
If the account you claim to be false does not use your identity but that of a friend, it is necessary that the person whose data is stolen sends us the request for identity verification together with the supporting documents.
The same identity verification procedure will be followed by the user who challenges your identity after initiating the verification process of your identity by the technical department by completing the request and providing information by the person whose identity is stolen.
We will use this information only to determine the authenticity of your request after the application has been settled, or within 3 months of the request, we will delete the copy of the document and the photographs submitted.
