Online Dating

21/12/16 Nikki investigates complaints about internet dating sites.

A spokesperson from Venntro Media Group Ltd said:
“Venntro Media Group’s software operates on a shared database bringing together members with similar interests on relevant sites. This increases their chance of meeting like-minded people and we regularly receive success stories from people who have met after signing up to different sites.
“We are transparent with this policy and make clear in our Terms and Conditions that members’ details will be made available on other relevant sites.
“If Ellinore selected every interest available on the site, she would appear on all sites for members with those interests.”

A spokesperson from Match said:
“Match aims to deliver the best possible customer service and we are very sorry to hear of this user’s experience. We continually review our policies based on member feedback and the latest consumer guidelines.
“Like other subscription based services such as magazines or gym memberships, our members’ subscriptions and any extras purchased are automatically renewed for convenience and to ensure that they experience no disruption in their service while exchanging with other members. All terms of payment are clearly communicated to members.
“We keep a record of all calls handled by our customer care team to ensure absolute transparency and are satisfied that the correct procedures were followed in this case.”
