INFORMATION ABOUT YOU
We gather certain generic information with respect to customer’s use of our website. Information may include number of unique visitors, the frequency with which they visit, and the areas on the website that they favour. These statistics are very much like television ratings that tell the networks how many people tuned into a program. We only use this type of data in the aggregate, on a collective basis, in summary form, rather than on an individual basis. This data help us determine the extent to which our customers use certain parts of our website, which in turn, enables us to make it as appealing as possible. We may also share aggregate data of customer collective use of our website with advertisers, sponsors, and other companies with which we do business (Affiliates or business partners). We do this so they, too, can improve functionality and offer services and materials that users want.

This system is automated and must be contacted from the email address you wish to have removed. Permission changes will be honored as soon as possible after receipt.

Sale of Assets
In the event that Abanosi.com and/or it’s units or subsidiaries are ever sold, acquired, merged, liquidated, reorganized, or otherwise transferred, we reserve the right to transfer our users databases together with any personal identifiable information contained therein, to a third-party acquiring Company’s assets.
When you place orders for purchased products or access your payment information, we use an advanced encryption technology known as Secure Socket Layer (SSL) to protect the storage and transfer of our data from authorized parties. While on a secure page, such as our registration form, a lock or key icon appears on the bottom of your web browser. In addition to our online security efforts, we take reasonable steps to protect your personal data offline, as well. All of your information, not just the sensitive information above, is restricted in our office.
Use Common Senses in All Your Online Activities
Even the best policy can’t protect your online privacy and security in all circumstances. Unscrupulous advertisers, hackers, and scam artists are constantly searching the Internet looking for new targets; your best protection is to understand the limits to privacy on the Internet and use common senses in all of your on-line activities.
Be aware that e-mail is an inherently insecure form of communication. Remember that third parties are sometimes able to illegally intercept your unencrypted messages, including online greetings.
Anytime you visit a chat room or post a message to an on-line bulletin board, your e-mail address can be accessed by advertisers looking to compile lists for unsolicited commercial e-mail (also known as spam). Be sure that you only disclose your e-mail address in circumstances in which it is safe to do so. Beware of scams in which persons unknown to you request you screen name, password, or credit card information. Make sure you verify the identity of anyone asking for personal information. Always monitor your children’s on-line activities and educate them as to the rules of safe Internet use.
