We will use your date of birth to calculate the age we show on your profile. We won’t show your date of birth to other wowwomen users.
If you choose to add a profile picture, this will be displayed to anyone who views your profile page or sees you on a search results page. Profile pictures may be included in email communications to wowwomen members if wowwomen considers you to be a good match.
If you choose to add more pictures you can choose to allow any logged in wowwomen member to see that picture, or you can choose to only show that picture to the people you like, i.e. the people whose profile you’ve marked as someone you like.
All photos uploaded will be checked by a member of the wowwomen team before they are shown on the website in accordance with our photographic terms and conditions. You can amend your preferences via your “Gallery” page at any time.
