Escort Lounge endeavours to collect personal information about an individual only from that individual. In some circumstances Escort Lounge may obtain personal information from a third party. If you provide personal information about another person to Escort Lounge, Escort Lounge requires that you inform that person you have done so and provide them with a copy of this policy.
