About MatchShia.com and the Information We Collect
MatchShia.com is an online matchmaking service designed to provide an easy way for our members to meet others looking for a soul-mate. Once members create their own unique profile, the public may view all of their profile except the name and contact information. Members may exchange name and contact information only after expressing consent by initiating a request by BOTH parties. Until both parties initiate a request, contact information is kept private.
