TangoWire is an online introduction service providing an easy means for our members to meet other members on a personal level via the Internet. While the TangoWire site is solely responsible for collecting, displaying, and storing member data, entrance into TangoWire via the Internet may be from affiliated partners via the partners’ Internet address and identity. A member’s inclusion into TangoWire, by arrival via any one specific Internet address or identity will enable their publicly viewable ad and profile to be available to all other partner sites. To accomplish this, our members create their own personalized profile by providing certain personal information. None of the information we gather is permitted to be used by the public (visitors, members of our Partner Program, other members, or anyone not employed by TangoWire or the financial institutions we use to process membership fees) to identify a specific individual.
We are a subscription-based site. In other words, we collect no personally identifiable information from users that is not voluntarily submitted. We only collect credit card or bank information from those who choose to join at a premium level. All visitors to our site may browse the site, search the ads and view any articles or features our site has to offer by creating a simple and personalized membership ad.
TangoWire Partner Program
The TangoWire Partner Program is a service offered by TangoWire to webmasters. It allows webmasters to have a customizable introduction service in association with TangoWire. The result of this relationship between webmaster and TangoWire is called the Partner Program Site. The webmaster is the network partner. No information exchanged with the network partner is used outside of the relationship between TangoWire and the partner, except that exchanged with tax preparers and the federal government for tax purposes only. Even though a friendly business relationship exists, Network Partners may not view private information on users or members of their Network Partner Site or TangoWire sites.
2. What information this site gathers/tracks about you…
TangoWire gathers two types of information: Information users voluntarily submit to us and information indirectly submitted to us by users.
Information users voluntarily submit to us:
There are two types of user-submitted information we collect: Public and Private. We define Public information as personal information that may be displayed on the site, such as age, gender and height, but cannot be used to define any members real identity. Private information is defined as any information that allows others to contact a user other than through the TangoWire sites or allows the collection of information about the user other than what is displayed on the site.
This information is gathered from members and guests who apply for various services our site offers. This information includes email address, first name, last name, birth date, credit card number, and a user-specified password.
TangoWire Partner Program
To create a Partner Site, the webmaster is asked for certain personal and business information, such as name, address and Tax ID or Social Security Number. The TangoWire Partner Program is a vehicle for other relationship-based sites to link to TangoWires matchmaking site. No personal member information is exchanged with the Network Partner, other than that considered public to all members.
To accomplish our goal of bringing compatible people together, we must gather personal information such as birthdate, gender, height, marital status, etc.. This information is meant to be seen by members and visitors to the site, but cannot be linked by any visitors to any members private information.
Information indirectly submitted to us by users

Email addresses may also be used in private correspondence with the user for customer service issues. Financial information that is collected is used to bill the user for products and services. All other private information submitted by the user is confidential. All private information can be updated or deleted by the user at any time.
