Only gypsy50s membership staff will be able to view your information, and only in the process of approving your membership. By submitting the information required to become a member of gypsy50s, you consent to having that information used in the ways set out in this Privacy Policy.

As a community service we require you to provide certain personal information, such as your name, address, email address and date of birth. Since we are a 50+ membership site we ask you to provide proof of age by sending us a photo or a scan of your passport, or similar legal photo identification. We will only use this information to confirm your name and age and after your profile is approved, this file will be permanently deleted from our server.

We require your information to set up your profile and help you find the perfect host, or host the perfect traveller for you. All your personal information will be secured on our database. You will be able to choose how much information to display on your profile. All the information on your profile will be shared only with the people you choose to share it with.

Your profile has two areas - one private, which only you or members you allow access to can see, and one public, which all other members can view. The gypsy50s public profile displays your name and username, profile picture, your personal description, the country you live in and whether you are a solo or couple traveller. You can edit your public profile to include further details and photos if you wish.

The private area contains your other information, or your bio, and is shared by you with potential guests or hosts when you choose to share it. This includes all of the information another gypsy50s member would need to view when searching out a potential host or tour guide. Your bio will be seen by other members only when you decide to share it with them by confirming your approval. Approval to share your bio is on a member-by-member basis, and not on a whole-of-site basis. Only the members you approve will be able to view your full bio.
