Safety Statement

LatinConexiones.com is committed to help you have safe, fun, comfortable and successful experiences on our site. Safety is one of our highest priorities and we will continue to help you protect your personal information, your personal well-being and have safe and trouble-free experiences. We stress that your safety is your responsibility and you are in control of your new relationships but we offer the following recommendations to help. We will continue to add resources and sites that have additional safety tips for you to follow as you build your new relationships.

Just as in offline dating most people have good intentions and are also safe people but we must always be cautious and wary of the small percentage who have less than honorable intentions. During online dating it is easier to meet many more people and become excited about the opportunities. Remember, that while we strive to protect your interests it is not possible to ensure 100% that all members have your same interests in mind.

Select an anonymous username that does not include your name and you haven’t used it anyplace else. Likewise, select a unique password for LatinConexiones that you have not used anywhere else. After you enroll on LatinConexiones.com set up an email account that will be used only for any new correspondence generated with your new online relationships. Consider using photos that have been taken only for use on LatinConexiones.com and not anywhere else. Use a separate set of images and selfies or photos. Keep in mind it is possible to run a Google Image Search and another person can discover everywhere that you have appeared on the internet.

If you want additional photos of your new interest ask for photos that show him, or her, in a variety of situations with other people and at different times of their life. Ask a lot of questions when communicating. You should be looking for consistency; a string of integrity. Ask a question and later ask the question again in a different way and a different conversation. You are looking for consistency and honesty.

Do not disclose your identity, phone number or personal contact information until you are comfortable doing so. Keep your communications on the LatinConexiones site until you are absolutely certain you want to move them. Bad characters will try to move them as quickly as possible.

Trust your instincts and remember that your excitement and your instincts are jacked a little – Use common sense. Always be cautious and remind yourself that you know almost nothing about the new people you are meeting. Everything you have learned is being shared with you by someone who is behind a computer screen. If something feels bad, or wrong, it probably is. In the excitement and fun and emotion of meeting someone who may be that person it is easy to let the guard down and forget the natural self-protection.

You can run a background check but remember if a person conducts bad online behavior but has never been caught a background check won’t help. Keep you antennae alert for unusual requests for money, requests for off-color photos, abusive or offensive language, questionable solicitations or intrusive questioning. You are in charge of what you reveal. Block and report suspicious users or anyone who violates our terms of use.

You are in control of your online presence. Do not let anyone take away that control.
