Limitations of Background Checks and Your Personal Safety
a. Member Verification, Background Checks and Date Screening Features. DateID uses the term “background check” to describe its “date screening” and verification features. But DateID is not a background check service in the traditional sense. We simply help you screen your dates by helping you verify the things that online dating users are known to lie about, including their identity, age, location, professional backgrounds, marital and family status, and appearance. The DateID Services include certain identity verification and date screening features for its Members, at his or her election, utilizing commercially available public records and data sources from third party service providers. By electing to utilize such features, such Members agree to provide their full legal name, email address and phone number, as well as other personally identifying information that may be needed by DateID to verify and authenticate a Member’s identity. Such Members expressly authorize DateID to obtain information, including, without limitation, information on personal address and any sex offender history.
a.1. “Background Check” Definition. DateID uses the terms “background check” and “date screening” interchangeably. DateID checks the U.S. Sex Offender Registry but does NOT do formal, comprehensive background checks, which could include checking for a full criminal history. DateID is not a substitute for conducting due diligence on your date. Contact your local police department if you have concerns about your date’s criminal history.
a.2 Criminal Records and Limitations of “background check” functionality. Because there is no central database that contains records of all federal, state and local crimes, DateID does not have a way to provide comprehensive criminal background checks, aside from the U.S. Sex Offender Registry. There may be users on the platform with criminal backgrounds, including violence such as domestic abuse. As a DateID user, you assume all responsibility for your safety and security. If you have concerns about someone you should contact local law enforcement.
b. Sex Offender Registry Map. DateID gets its US Sex Offender Registry Data from Family Watch Dog, an organization that provides the locations of registered sex offenders, based on the US Sex Offender Registry database. Family Watchdog is not officially endorsed by the US Government and does not guarantee the accuracy of its data. DateID takes this data and may place it on a map near the last known location of DateID users. Always check the map on a user’s profile. DateID has no control over the accuracy of this data and there is no guarantee that every sex offender is in the registry. No database is perfect, and that includes the US National Sex Offender Registry. If a sex offender is registered in a different state than where you are running a search, the sex offender notification may not show up on the map on profile. As a DateID user, you assume all responsibility for your safety and security. If you have concerns about someone you should also look for them in the US National Sex Offender Registry database: https://www.nsopw.gov. You should also contact local law enforcement.
c. Non-US Citizens and Sex Offender Registry Map. The Sex Offender Registry Map does not contain any non-US citizens. As stated on the map, is you’re searching for someone in another country, including Cananda, the U.K. and Australia, there will be no sex offenders showing. If you search in the US for someone who is not a US resident, they could be a sex offender in a different country. As a DateID user, you assume all responsibility for your safety and security. If you have concerns about a DateID Member you should contact local law enforcement.
d. Possibility of scammers on DateID. We make every effort to keep scammers off DateID. However, scammers are highly skilled at infiltrating dating sites and social media, and no platform is 100% secure. If you have any concerns that a scammer is posing on a DateID as a legitimate user, please flag the profile immediately, and contact us on our support page. You should also ask anyone you have concerns about to complete the Identity Verification process, which is extremely secure. You are solely responsible for your personal safety.
e. Third party data usage. Members further authorize and consent to the investigation of all information provided by the Member as part of his or her account or profile. You hereby release, discharge and exonerate DateID, its officers, directors, employees, agents, representatives, affiliates, parent or subsidiary entities, and assigns, and any person furnishing information from any and all liability of every nature and kind arising out of the furnishing or inspection of such documents, records and other information. You further acknowledge and consent that, although DateID will not disclose the results obtained from the third party service providers with other users, DateID may review the information provided by the third party service provider and that DateID has and reserves the right to terminate a Member’s account in its sole discretion without notice based on the information it obtains.
Although DateID attempts to verify the accuracy of information provided by Members, the public record and commercially available databases searched by the third party service providers are not guaranteed to be complete, accurate or without errors. As such, the identity verification and date screening features of the DateID Service should not and may not be construed as any guarantee regarding the quality or security offered by any Members. All Members assume all risks relating to any interactions they may elect to have with other Members and are solely responsible for the safety and security of themselves.
All Members of the DateID Service acknowledge and understand that DateID has no control over and does not assume any responsibility for the quality, accuracy, or reliability of the information provided by other Members or the third party service provider or contained within commercial databases maintained by third party service providers or public records maintained and/or transmitted by federal, state or municipal government entities. Public records and commercial data systems may have errors and should not be relied upon as definitively accurate. Before relying on any data supplied, it should be independently verified. Certain criminal record data may include records that have been expunged, sealed, or otherwise inaccessible to the public since the date on which the data or record was last updated or collected.
Fair Credit Reporting Act Disclaimer
Please be advised that DateID is not a consumer reporting agency as defined in the Fair Credit Reporting Act (“FCRA”) which can be found at www.ftc.gov/os/statutes/fcrajump.shtm, and any information collected or received by DateID from its third party service providers have not been collected in whole or in part for the purpose of furnishing consumer reports, as defined in the FCRA as well as all other applicable consumer reporting laws.

Account Removal and permanent deletion. Once you create an account, we create a record of you locally in our database. You can contact us to request removal and we will delete you.
However, because DateID uses search data from a third-party service, Pipl.com, an unofficial version of your profile may still appear on DateID. The only way to remove yourself permanently is to contact www.pipl.com and request removal. We regret that we won’t have a better solution at the current time.
