- No Fake Messages
We do not send fake messages using bots from fake accounts trying to lure you into a paid subscription. We do not employ people paid or unpaid to send messages to try and entice anyone to become a premium subscriber.
- No Fake Profiles
OstoDate does not create fake profiles to buffer up its member base. As with most reputable sites, we started off by offering an incentive for people to join these loyal members use our service from many years back. In most cases during the very early years of the site, we offered some people lifetime or limited period VIP membership to join. This is how we built up the numbers of the active members and profiles created by genuine interested people. We call these our "Legacy Members" and even today we are proud to say these loyal members use our service from many years back.
- No Spam
The only emails you will receive from us will be related to your account or our service. We will never share your email or details with anyone and once your account is deleted, you will receive one more email to confirm your account deletion and remind you to cancel any VIP Subscription you may have.
We prioritise search results, lists and potential matches by the most active members. Wasting your time showing you profiles of inactive members at the top of lists is counter productive. We want to have you chatting with other like minded members and what could be better than immediately striking up a great conversation with someone recently logged in.
- Delete When You Want
We make deleting your profile easy and we usually do this within 24 hours if received during office hours (excluding weekends). You can find more on how to delete your profile from our Support Centre
- Full Privacy Respect
We know how important privacy is, especially online. For this reason, we collect the very minimum personal information we can and what little we do collect will never be shared with any third party by us. We also offer our members privacy settings to add another layer to their privacy if they so wish.
- Profile In One Place Only
There are many websites that share profiles as part of a “network”, so that your profile appears on several sites. We will never do this. Your profile will only be on OstoDate.
- Easy Subscription Cancelation
Once you cancel your subscription, you will not be re-billed.
Did you know?
By employing a responsible “self service” subscription via CCBill, OstoDate allows all subscribers the power to cancel their own subscription so they will not be re-billed unintentionally - it’s all in your hands.
As an extra precaution, to prevent unintentional billing, when an account is deleted, users will also receive an email to confirm account deletion, with a reminder and link to the subscription cancellation page.
Subscription Cancellation page link:

In the interest of openness, the above cancellation information and link is also displayed on the OstoDate subscription page and help page amongst other places.
