Privacy Principles (from: http://www.getabine.com/privacypolicy.php)
1. Privacy policies and data collection and use policies should be human readable, comprehensive, and easy to locate;
2. Only the minimum amount of information reasonably necessary to provide you with services should be collected and maintained, and only for so long as reasonably needed or required;
3. Information you provide through our Websites, or that we gather as a result of your use of our Websites or OpenID services, should not be used for marketing or advertising purposes, nor should it be provided voluntarily (without your permission) to anyone else unless required; and
4. Unless restricted or prohibited by law, and provided your email address has been collected and retained, you should be notified when circumstances require Abine Inc. to provide a third party with your personal information.
Abine, Inc. except as required by law:
* Abine will not track, store or transmit to any server or third party, information regarding users’ behavioral data (to include web browsing activity).
* will not sell or otherwise work with third parties to market additional software to users (not including Abine software or services).
* will not deliver or help others deliver any targeted advertising to users.
* will not store users' passwords and login credentials on Abine’s servers (or any other remote location other than the user’s computer) except when requested to do so and encrypted with a key not known to Abine.
(Please note that Abine's policy is “required by law”, not “permitted by law”, since “permitted” means almost anything is allowed, while “required” are situations where the company receives a valid court order, for example, and is compelled to comply.)
Information we Collect from our Websites (because we can't avoid it.)
* We do not use persistent cookies on this site
* We won't share or rent data unless you are buying additional services through us,in which cases we share the minimum data required, or we are compelled by legal orders.
* No specifics of a user and what they do on the site are kept (see exceptions below in PRIVACYSUITE BETA PROGRAM)

This website is not directed at individuals under thirteen years of age, and we do not intend to collect any personally-identifiable information from such individuals.
Information we Collect from the Browser Add-on (because we can't avoid it.)
All your accounts, passwords, and other browsing activity is stored locally in an encrypted database for which we do not have the ability to decrypt. Please see "Where is my data" for more information.
Our Abine browser add-on uses unique identifiers that are not tied to you or your IP address, and are used to help you track versions and updates for the add-on, as well as to validate shielding requests. If you chose to provide more data in order to take advantage of additional services, such as webmail, the add-on identifier is never used in a way that ties it to your name or personal information.
* We may collect a unique anonymous number from each browser add-on to track total number of installs and verify proper functioning of our software, and regularly check for add-on updates
* If we are shielding your email address, the target emails addresses are stored
* If we are shielding your phone number, the target phone number, or email address for voicemails is stored.
* If you share form mappings with us we do not collect your IP or add-on id.
