NiteFlirt wants you to have a safe and fun experience. It's important that you know how to stay safe online, not just with NiteFlirt, but with all other websites. We encourage you to read this information as it is vital in keeping your information secure.
If you ever suspect that your account has been compromised, change your password immediately and contact NiteFlirt through our Customer Support Form. If you believe you've received a spoofed email, please forward the email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will investigate it immediately.
NiteFlirt is a Secure and Encrypted Website
You can be assured that all sensitive information, like credit card numbers, is encrypted through our secure server using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) guaranteeing the protection and integrity of all members' accounts. SSL is an industry standard security protocol designed to provide secure communications on the Internet.
SSL does three things:
- SSL authenticates that the server you have connected to is the one it purports to be. You can be assured that you are actually communicating with the bank, and not a third party trying to intercept the transaction.
- SSL creates a secure communication channel by encrypting all communication between the user and the server.
- SSL conducts a cryptographic word count to ensure data integrity between the server and the user. The word count, or checksum, provides a count of the number of bytes in a document and ensures the exact number of bytes is transmitted and received. With SSL, even this checksum is encrypted so it cannot be modified. If a message is not received in its entirety, it is rejected and another copy of the message is sent automatically.
The use of SSL is just one part of a comprehensive environment to keep your information safe and secure. We follow the guidelines set forth by the Payment Card Industry's Data Security Standard (PCI DSS). At a high level, our approach is to:
- Install and maintain a firewall configuration to protect cardholder data
Protect Cardholder Data
- Protect stored cardholder data
- Encrypt transmission of cardholder data across open, public networks
Maintain a Vulnerability Management Program
- Use and regularly update anti-virus software or programs
- Develop and maintain secure systems and applications
Implement Strong Access Control Measures
- Restrict access to cardholder data by business need-to-know
- Assign a unique ID to each person with computer access
- Restrict physical access to cardholder data
Regularly Monitor and Test Networks
- Track and monitor all access to network resources and cardholder data
- Regularly test security systems and processes
Maintain an Information Security Policy
- Maintain a policy that addresses information security for employees and contractors
Keeping Your Information Safe is Simple
Keeping your information safe is easy with NiteFlirt. Here are a few points on how to stay safe!
Having a strong password is very important. Passwords based on addresses, family names, pet names, birthdays, 123456, ABCDEF, or anything in the dictionary are very weak and easy for a motivated person to guess. Hackers will literally go through an entire dictionary trying to guess a password and can take less than a day to figure one out! They will also go through all the simple combinations on a keyboard such as QWERTY and 12345.
Typically the longer and more complex the password, the harder it is to hack. A long, somewhat random sentence is harder to be guessed but easy to remember, such as "
Vary and Change Your Password Often
You should have a unique password for each site you use and each account on that site. In the event that one password is compromised, at least the others are safe. Writing down a password or keeping it stored on your computer is entirely up to you, however it is extremely important that you do not give it out to anyone! This includes providing it to other NiteFlirt members and social network users such as those in internet chat rooms. Even people who are your friends or who you think would never do anything malicious with your account could accidentally provide your account information to someone else. Remember, we will never ask you for your password so be vigilant and avoid all requests for passwords regardless of who it's from.
We strongly suggest you utilize a password manager to keep track of your passwords.
The life of a password should be short. Keeping a password for several years is not recommended but changing it daily would be troublesome. It is recommended that you change your password every 30 to 90 days.
Protecting Your Computer
Always keep your computer safe by installing the latest versions of anti-virus software and a personal firewall. The two most popular programs are MacAfee and Norton. In addition, always check for browser updates so you have the latest anti-virus protection.
It's always safer to use your own computer rather than other computers. When using another computer, you run the risk of exposing vital information to others, especially on public computers. If you must use another computer, be sure to delete all your "Temporary Internet Files" and clear all of your history when you log off.
Avoiding Spoofed Emails and Online Fraud Scams
Never reply to emails or links that ask for personal information such as passwords, bank account numbers, and Social Security Numbers. A NiteFlirt Representative may ask for payment details, Member Names, and minor credit card information, but we will never request sensitive information such as your Social Security Number, full credit card number, or password.
Phishing is the attempt by a third party to maliciously trick you into providing personal information. Such emails are called Spoofed Emails that direct you to websites that look like NiteFlirt when, in fact, it is falsified. Avoid clicking on links to specific websites that are included in all emails, chat rooms, blogs, and social networking sites like Facebook. Often these links will direct you to a spoofed website.
Spoofed emails are very common in internet chat rooms. In fact, most fraud occurs on these programs since they are easily accessible to hackers. Be very vigilant and cautious when you enter chat rooms and remember to avoid clicking on any suspicious links.
For example, someone could send you an email pretending to be NiteFlirt and ask you to sign in to your account and enter personal information. When clicking this link, you are directed to a site that looks like NiteFlirt. However, in reality, this site is being controlled by a third party in hopes of gaining your information and using it for malicious purposes. Often these emails contain grammatical errors or unusual reply email addresses. If the email's reply address is email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org, you can be certain that it's spoofed.
Again, when in doubt, never click on a link in a chat room, a social networking site, or from a suspicious email. Instead, enter the website by opening up a new browser and going to that site directly.
Online Fraud Scams
Always avoid emails that have a sense of emergency, indicate rewards, and ask for upfront payment. Emails that include "Your account has been canceled, click here to restore it" and "Click here to reactivate and pay your account" are good examples of online fraud scams that should be avoided at all costs.
Staying Safe and Reporting Fraud
These guidelines should be applied to all your online accounts including emails, internet chat programs, blogs, and social networking sites like MySpace and Facebook. Keep in mind that fraudsters will piece information together on these sites in an attempt to capture your password.
If you suspect you have a compromised account, please change your password immediately with NiteFlirt. Change your email passwords and contact your credit card company. You also have the option to file a police report and file an identity theft complaint. Remember, we will work with you to help protect your account.
If you suspect any kind of unusual or fraudulent activity, contact NiteFlirt through our Customer Support Form. Should you ever come across a spoofed email, please forward the email to email@example.com and we will contact you shortly regarding this issue. This helps protect all members of NiteFlirt.
Keep in mind NiteFlirt works with authorities and law enforcement to arrest and prosecute people who steal members' identities. To stay up to date with online security, please visit http://yoursecurityresource.com.
Paying by Credit and Debit Card
You can use the following cards on NiteFlirt:
- Debit or ATM cards with a Visa or MasterCard logo
- Pre-paid or gift cards with a Visa or MasterCard logo (call the phone number on the back of the card to register a name and address as this is required by some issuers)
All NiteFlirt members must add a valid credit card before Becoming a Flirt or placing calls.
Our secure server encrypts all credit card information ensuring all payments are secure.
Troubleshooting and Declined Authorizations
If you are not able to add funds to your account because your card is declined:
- Make sure you have entered your billing address and security code (three digits on the back of card) correctly. Enter the expiration date in digits of four. For instance, an expiration date of 10/2022 would be entered as 1022.
- Contact the credit card issuer to learn about their security policies. Sometimes they just want to know that it is you attempting the transaction and many decline issues can be resolved by a simple phone call to the issuer. The credit card issuer may have red flags and certain thresholds on your account. Unexpected activity, first time purchases, and high value purchases typically alarm most banks.
Banks can also have spending limits on your card. Daily limits are typically set and if you exceed this limit your card will get blocked. Regardless of how much money is available, exceeding this threshold may prevent you from using your card.
If you have any other questions regarding your card, please contact your credit card issuer or financial institution.
