Standards & Guidance
We have recently moved from our Code of Practice to a more extensive package of advice and guidance for dating services. This reflects our continuing commitment to standards and a belief that this can be best achieved in a fast-changing environment through guidance and best practice.
This guide flags the most relevant consumer protection laws, regulations and Codes, and sets out what is considered good practice in terms of dating services.
Managing, storing, protecting personal data is integral to dating services. By their very nature these services should have a high regard for data collection, processing and security. There is new and comprehensive legislation in place alongside guidance from the ICO, various trade bodies, legal firms and others.
Operators should provide users with advice and guidance on how to stay safe while using dating services.
What we seek to do.
