FAQ’s

1. How do I remove a post?
We normally do not remove posts however, we do reserve the right to remove content at our own discretion at any time and for any reason.
You may contact us if you feel you have a valid reason why we should remove you from our site however, it is highly suggested you continue to read this entire page to avoid having your request trashed. 

2. If I post someone, will they know who I am?
All user-generated content is anonymous.

3. Are all people who are posted on DangerDating dangerous or guilty of a crime?
Absolutely not. We make no such claim. We leave that up to your own discretion to form an opinion on each person.

4. What’s the purpose of this site?
The purpose of the site is to provide a platform where people can find or share their personal experience about people they know, Good or Bad. It’s the equivalent of Angie’s List for online dating. Up until now, there was no available forum to search or share information about someone before committing to going on a date with them. Now there is. 

5. How did you get my information?
All information provided is or was available to the public or more than likely, published by someone you know.
All arrest information originated with your law enforcement agencies. We publish the information “as is” and do not edit it. If it is inaccurate, the inaccuracy originated by the arresting agency, county or the author of the post. We are not responsible for such inaccuracies, however, we do reserve the right to modify content at our own discretion. 

6. Isn’t it illegal to post my information?
No. We do not need your permission or blessing to publish public records or any information provided by anyone. Any grievances you have, you will have to address them with the author or agencies who provided the information.
Originally collected and distributed by Law Enforcement agencies, Booking records are considered and legally recognized as public records, in the public domain. Furthermore, while it may be you or someone you know in the mugshot, the ownership of these records is public.

7. By publishing arrest information are we violating copyright laws?
No, we are not. You can read an article about it by clicking here.
Federal Laws allow for reproduction of public records. Additionally, news reporting is acceptable usage under Fair Use statute “Fair use is a limitation and exception to the exclusive right granted by copyright law to the author of a creative work. In United States copyright law, fair use is a doctrine that permits limited use of copyrighted material without acquiring permission from the rights holders. Examples of fair use include commentary, search engines, criticism, news reporting, research, teaching, library archiving and scholarship. It provides for the legal, unlicensed citation or incorporation of copyrighted material in another author’s work under a four-factor balancing test.” – Wikipedia

8. “My record was expunged”
“I was pardoned”
“My case was dismissed”
“I am innocent”
As you may be aware, Expungements, No File, Pardons, and Dismissed cases ONLY apply to certain government agencies’ databases, and not all of them. Certainly not to the private sector, therefore, we have the right to publish content regardless of the outcome of the case.

9. “This is Blackmail”
No, it’s not. Blackmail is demanding money from a person in return for not revealing compromising or injurious information about that person.
The information on our site has already been revealed, therefore not “blackmail”.

10. “This is Extortion”
No, it’s not. Extortion is the practice of obtaining something, especially money, through force or threats.
Nothing is being done through force or a threat on our behalf. You are contacting us usually asking for something. In fact, by definition, people are trying to extort us by demanding we remove content through force and threats. 

11. “This is defamatory, slanderous, libelous”
If your claim is in regards to an arrest, unfortunately, it’s a factual event which occurred in time as reported by the arresting agency. We are not responsible for your actions. Unless you have a time machine and can undo the event, nothing can be done.
If it’s in regards to a post by an individual, you need to take your grievances up with the author, not us.

12. “I will be contacting my lawyer”
We seriously doubt that. Seems everyone in the US has a lawyer on standby as if you are so important. You are not.

13. “I am going to sue you”
No, won’t happen, can’t happen. You can pay a good attorney approximately $300+ an hour for legal advice to get the same answer or continue to read and educate yourself on the reality of the internet. Many with deep pockets and access to powerful resources have tried throughout the years and all have failed miserably. The proof is in the fact that you are reading this right now. If it was possible, it would have already been done.
Knowledge is power.
However, for fun, let’s say after spending tens of thousands of dollars and years in court, you won a judgment for “damages”, how would someone in the US go about collecting a judgment in South America from a site with no money?

14. “I will shut down your website”
No, you can’t or it would have already happened a long time ago.
9 out of 10 emails we receive threaten to sue or shut us down.

10 out of 10 of those email get an eye roll from us and then trashed.
Our site is 100% Legal regardless of how you feel about it. Just because you may not like it, doesn’t make it illegal. The internet does not revolve you or the US. It’s called the World Wide Web for a reason.

15. My State has laws against publication of arrest information.
 That may be true IF we were located in your State, IF our servers were in your State, IF we were in the US, IF our servers were in the US.
 Since none of the IFs are true, we do not need to comply with your local or national laws. Our country has no such laws which prohibit us from publishing content from another country on our site therefore, we are not obligated to remove any content posted by us or anyone else.

16. Will you remove a post if I get a court-ordered DMCA takedown notice?
In order to file a DMCA takedown, you have to be the owner of the copyright content. Nothing on this site is copyrighted or is owned by you or anyone.
A court-ordered DMCA takedown notice will only invoke another eye roll.  Aside from being protected by Communication Decency Act of 1996, we are located outside the United States where US laws are not applicable nor can be enforced. If you still feel inspired to pursue the equivalent of a DMCA takedown, our advice is to contact an attorney in our country. We wish you the best of luck.

That being said, any threats or attempt to be a nuisance will be republished on this site and will result in the republication of your content on various other popular websites. Also, you will be permanently banned from ever being removed from this site or any other sites we forwarded your information to. Public information is public and can legally be shared by anyone.

17. What if I own the images that are on your site?
You will need to send us the copyright registration number given to you by your the copyright office. If you don’t understand what that means, then you don’t own the rights to them.

18. Can I have Google or other search engines remove me from your site?
Google, Yahoo, Bing, etc. are search engines. They only search and do not have any control over a website’s content. They do not play politics with what a website decides to publish. If what you’re searching for is on our site, they will show it in their search results. Search engines search and if they find, they show you which site has what you’re looking for. It’s that simple.
The only exception would be child pornography which we will absolutely NOT tolerate and we will report to authorities.

19. What if the post is of a minor?
The person has to currently be a minor, not was a minor at the time.
If the person is a minor will immediately remove it.

20. Can I contact the author of the post directly?
The only way to contact the author is by responding to that post.
