PRIVACY POLICY AND INFORMATION SECURITY

ON THE NEWS
privacy policy

News on social media privacy policy and third-party information risk are all over the media after Facebook’s security breach. This has put any form of social platform under scrutiny.

Facebook’s security breach impacted 30 million users. Fourteen million of them had their names, contact details, and sensitive information exposed including recent location check-ins.

Aside from social platforms, well-known firms such as Saks, Panera or UnderArmour were also involved in security breaches in 2018 with hundreds of millions of records breached.

According to DatingNews.com, dating sites are also vulnerable. In the last three years, the industry has had to pay hundreds of millions of dollars to victims of security breaches and identity theft.

Social platforms are having to re-think their privacy policies to avoid both security and privacy breaches. These are related but not the same.  Therefore, it’s important to understand how this impacts your personal information.

WHAT IS A SECURITY BREACH 

“A data breach is the intentional or unintentional release of secure or private/confidential information to an untrusted environment.”

It is one of the earliest stages of a security attack by a malicious intruder. They happen when the security policy and procedures get violated.

When information is used or released by a third and malicious third party, we have a security breach. It is intentional. That company or person uses the data for their own agenda.

WHAT IS A PRIVACY BREACH

“A privacy breach is the loss of, unauthorized access to, or disclosure of personal information.”

This is when personal information is stolen, lost, or mistakenly shared even if it is not published. It may also be a consequence of feeble business procedures.

The best way to avoid a privacy issue is to set up measures to make it hard for intruders to abuse the system or for someone to share personal information by mistake. In social media, when you access through another social media profile, you increase risk. Therefore, one way to avoid that risk is not to allow third-party logins.  This makes it difficult for bots to fill out fake profiles. At LatinConexiones, we don’t allow third-party logins.

Impersonation is very common on dating sites and it can happen in two ways: someone pretends to be you or someone pretends to be someone else to hurt you. It’s our commitment to keep your personal information safe. We make it a priority to detect fake profiles and to make sure you have a pleasant experience with our platform.

WHAT ARE PRIVACY POLICIES

The law requires privacy policies. Privacy laws worldwide dictate that if you collect personal information from website visitors, then you need to have a Privacy Policy posted to your site. Many third-party services used to enhance website performance also require you to have a Privacy Policy.

These policies establish how and when they will use your personal information in the company. At LatinConexiones, we have established a very strict and strong policy to protect you. You can read it here.

As a member of our community, you can also help us avoid breaches and protect your privacy by reporting any suspicious behaviors here.

Latest News

Every day there is more news online and offline about the growth of online dating around the world.  New relationships that started online are now a part of the normal way that people meet and the number of marriages that result from those new relationships continues to grow.  We offer some of the news in our Growth of Online Dating article on this site.

What has not been specifically discussed is the participation of the many beautiful and diverse Hispanic cultures throughout the world in this growing social phenomenon.  Until now!  The family of LatinConexiones sites is a collaboration of efforts and contributions by individuals from many different Latino cultures who are dedicated to build sites that focus on all aspects of the Hispanic community.  We focus on the Hispanic lifestyles.

Our focus also includes the celebrations of all of our diverse cultures and the way we traditionally dedicate our lives to focus on immediate and extended families, neighbors, consumers, other Hispanic entrepreneurs and contribute to our local and national social efforts

Other Hispanic-dating and Latin-dating sites focus primarily on the physical attributes of our beautiful Hispanics. Those sites are sex connection sites or meat-trafficking sites. Several of these sites advertise to meet sexy men or women. They have men and women with very little clothing.

The LatinConexiones.com site has been very successful in being able to separate itself from those sites that are not as serious about the many other qualities, values, ethics, morals and religious beliefs that make up the whole of the Hispanic dating community.  We are committed to maintain a wholesome site that focuses to help our members be serious about their search efforts.

The mission of LatinConexionesMedia site is to empower users of LatinConexiones.com to improve their experiences to achieve the greatest benefits.  We believe that educated and informed visitors will remain alert to protect safety and privacy.  This site contains online dating information, advice, recommendations and resources from experts throughout the online dating industry to serve our members as they build new friendships and relationships.

Our dating site will host numerous events with activities to help the Hispanic community grow together. In addition, we are extending invitations to associations and social organizations and companies to participate in LatinConexionesEventos.  On this site will be published the dates, times and places for events that are of interest to our members.

Throughout the world there are millions of Hispanics who have the entrepreneurial spirit and the determination to be successful and they have launched their own businesses.  LatinConexiones has a tremendous respect for that spirit and recognizes that many of those business owners do not have the resources to create their own web pages or to launch a major online marketing effort to promote their products or services.

The LatinConexionesEcommerce site is an opportunity for subscribed members to our dating site to rent a page and receive the benefit of all of our social and digital marketing efforts.  Hispanic entrepreneurs who take advantage of this wonderful opportunitycan focus on their products and services and expand their markets.

The owner of the LatinConexiones sites has a care and concern that extends beyond the dating site.  That care and concern has been recognized throughout the online dating industry and as a result the owner has been personally invited to serve as a member of the Internet Dating Executive Alliance.

The goal of the Alliance of executive is to help leaders grow the Internet dating industry professionally and honorably and help inspire innovation and thinking. We would like to add that we are committed to helping the industry grow up safe and sound.
