Bellevue, WA (PRWEB) January 23, 2005
Getogethersafe.com (http://www.getogethersafe.com) announced the selection of Intelius, Inc., (http://www.intelius.com) as the exclusive provider of their site's Identity Verification and Background Check program. Under the agreement, Intelius will provide Getogethersafe.com with the Intelius InteliSign -- an identity verification service, which allows users on the site to confirm that they are in fact, who they claim to be. In addition, Getogethersafe.com users will have access to Intelius Background Checks, which will include comprehensive criminal record and sex offender checks.
Intelius InteliSign is a real-time solution for online dating sites. It allows users to maintain their anonymity, but confirms their identity as a real person to the community. Intelius InteliSign verifies users through a series of questions that confirm name, address, age, living situation, and criminal history. The Intelius system is a blind query that captures the user's information, runs the check and display's the results to the end user, without revealing any sensitive information.
According to an MSN survey, 64% of the people who never visited an online dating site, list the reason as "You can't trust the people you meet online."
"Getogethersafe.com presents individuals who are truly interested in creating solid relationships, instead of just accepting a mass volume of users, without regard to quality", said Rana Adamchick, Chief Executive Officer of Getogethersafe.com. "Intelius is a key partner for us, as their service provides our subscribers with the confidence to interact on our site. Clients will be able to verify the person's identity, which can reduce the risk of harm, and of course, fraud." As long as they use the service, it should create a safer experience for them."
"Anonymity is one of the great draws to dating sites. However, one of the challenges it presents is user misrepresentation," said Ed Petersen, Senior Vice President of Business Development of Intelius. "The deployment of InteliSign on the Getogethersafe.com dating site will assure that users are in fact who they claim, whether it's confirming their age, their living situation, or their sex. InteliSign will build confidence in the Getogethersafe community, creating a safer environment, where users can interact more freely."
Intelius was founded in January of 2003 by a group of senior executives and technologists from InfoSpace and Microsoft. The Intelius team has a proven track record of execution and leadership in the information solutions space, and they're visionaries in identifying early opportunities that have changed the way technology is used to build the information, as well as identifying commerce marketplaces of today. Intelius has three primary product lines: InteliFinder, one of the largest and most accurate public records sources available online; InteliSign, a secure identity management solution that promotes trust by providing safe, non-intrusive and effective mechanisms to validate an individual's identity; InteliGov provides integrated Intelligent information for homeland security.
