The online dating site DatingBuzz.com offers free registration. Plus, this portal seems to have many active members. We read about great chances of finding a match here. But we did some research on the internet and found a few negative reviews from former customers. According to that information, this site is not as great as promised on the landing page.
So, the operator of the online dating website advertises with misleading information. That is not a rip-off, but it lowers the trustworthiness of the site. We checked the terms and conditions for more hints about any kind of scam. It turns out that costs will occur after the registration for a premium-membership. This is offered in the form of a subscription. That subscription will extend automatically, if it is not terminated in time.
Leaking personal data protection
That automatic renewal of the membership could be used as a trap. But in this case, it is not as the deadline for termination is 24 hours. So, the cancelation can be made on a daily basis. In the terms and conditions, we did not find any note about a fake chat scam either. So, the profiles in the members´ pool are real and not fake. Moreover, the profiles are not controlled by fake operators.
But the operator of the site mentions something else about the profiles which is negative. Dating Lab Limited is the operator of DatingBuzz.com. They are based in Jersey on the Channel Islands.
Here the excerpt
“The Company reserves the right to excerpt content from profiles, including the Member screen name and photo(s), and feature them in promotional material. By creating a profile you grant The Company permission to publish your profile in any of our partner sites.”
The online dating website DatingBuzz.com has got leaking data protection. If you register here, your profile will be displayed on all other sites of the operator’s network. This lowers the chance of finding a match by a lot. The profiles in the members´ pool are not from this single site. It is a collection of all profiles from all their sites.
