5. I am worried about my information being shared with strangers

At NSL, confidentiality is of utmost importance. All our team members, caseworkers and administrative volunteers are trained extensively on the importance of confidentiality and have signed confidentiality waivers. For those seeking matrimonial services, each applicant must sign a confidentiality agreement, agreeing to keep the details of any potential matches private

6. What if I don’t want to pursue a suggested match?

You are in control of how far you wish to pursue a potential matrimonial match and can withdraw from the process as you see fit. We do ask that applicants for matrimonial services honor the dignity of those with whom they may have initiated contact if they wish to withdraw from the process, and act with respect and integrity at all stages.

7. Is it down to me to assess, verify and check out the details of the potentially suitable individual suggested to me?

Yes, indeed. After connecting and communicating, you will have ample opportunity to assess each other and personally conclude whether you are compatible with each other

8. What if I don’t want to continue seeking general support services?

At NSL we believe in the philosophy of empowerment, which means that the applicant decides on the level of support required. There may be certain situations where withdrawal may not be possible, and these will be discussed on an individual basis
