What is our privacy and refund policy?
Your privacy is crucial to us, which is one of the main reasons why we don't have free profiles on Educated Singles. None of the information you as a member has given will we given or sold to a third party in any form.
Your membership is a subscription which you can cancel at any time to the end of a subscription period.
How do we secure authenticity?
One of the main issues for online social groups in general and dating communities in particular is to verify that the members are who they appear to be. In Educated Singles we decided to prioritise authenticity of any thing else. That means we assess each profile carefully before it is published and some structural elements helps us keeping this community safe, reliable and trustworthy for all members. The measures we have implemented are:
- Our business model is not based on advertising revenue like most other online communities. We think it is wrong. This means you have to pay a small fee to have a profile with Educated Singles. With this model we don't need as many profiles as possible (where a large portion of them would be fake). We can approve the members who fit our criteria. This is good for you as a member.
- We ask you provide us with a link to your LinkedIn public profile. We use the information in your Linkedin profile to verify your education and name. If you don't have a LinkedIn profile you can provide us with a link to another professional networking site like Xing or Viadeo where we can do the verification.
- There are no free profiles. Nothing in this world is free. It is free to have a profile on Facebook and to use Google but they make a lot of money from collecting information about you and sell them to 3rd parties. With Educated Singles you pay a small fee and you don't have to worry about being spammed with mails or being exposed to ads when you are using Educated Singles. The information you provide us stays here. It is fair and transparent. Having no free profiles have another positive side effect, namely that it almost eliminates fake profiles, because people who create profiles don't want to pay anything because their identity will be revealed.
- We also do photo verification if we are in doubt of a profile's authenticity.

Who is behind Educated Singles?
Educated Singles was founded by Dr. Finn Majlergaard and he owns the company 100%. Educated Singles is headquartered in Nice, France but operates as an entirely virtual organisation. The idea behind Educated Singles was to create not only a dating site but a community, where well-educated singles from around the world could get together for many different purposes. It will be obvious to establish think tanks under the educated singles umbrella and by bringing a lot of diversity together solving problems and developing new ideas we can become very influential.
