How We Provide A Secure Environment for Your Data

Security measures: Amanova has implemented security measures to protect your information from loss, misuse and alteration. We use industry standard firewall and password protection systems. Third party authorities as well as our internal team periodically review our security system and policy. We constantly upgrade our security systems to ensure that we use the best and most current technology to provide a secure environment for your data.

Your password: Your information is located in a password-protected area of Amanova and is encrypted. Therefore, you can access your data only with the user name and password that you have chosen. We recommend that you never share your password with anyone. If you share your computer we suggest that you sign out of Amanova before another person uses the computer.

Amanova employees will never ask you for your password. When you register to become a Amanova user, we ask that you verify your email address. In the event that you forget your password, our system will automatically email you a link directing you to a secure part of our Web site where you create a new password. At no point in this process does any Amanova employee see your password.

The Types of Information We Collect From You

  • Personally identifiable information
  • Information about you without your name
  • Aggregated information without your name

Personally identifiable information: Refers to information that lets us know who you are. In order to register to use Amanova, you will need to give us your name and email address so we can establish your account and make the service available for you.
Information about you without your name: It refers to anonymous information about what you find interesting on the Web, but would never include your name or email address. For example, you might be bookmarking a lot of pages about collectibles. Based on this information, we may provide you with information from a partner on where to find collectibles in your area, but we would not sell your name to the partner.
Aggregated information without your name: Refers to information we gather by aggregating your anonymous information with anonymous information from other users to provide a summary of our users. There is no personally identifiable information in this summary. We may use this information to provide users with insights on how other users interact with the Web. For example, we may provide a list of the most frequently bookmarked links within our database based on our aggregated user information. We may also use this information to inform partners or advertisers about the demographics of our audience.

Only when you give us your explicit permission will we collect your personally identifiably information. When you join Amanova, we'll ask for your name and email address and your preferred user name and password. As you use the service, you will be submitting the names and URLs of Web sites that you have visited. In all of these cases, we will never associate you per se with any of your data. Nor will Amanova employees view your data, as our security policy calls for dismissal and legal prosecution of any unauthorized person who attempts to access our customers' data.

Like many Web sites, Amanova uses a standard Web technology called "cookies" which helps us to improve your experience. A cookie is a small file containing information about the user which is stored on your hard drive, not on our site. For example, we use cookies to deliver content specific to your interests, and to help you save your password so you don't have to re-enter it each time you visit our site. We do not, and cannot, use cookies to find out the identity of any user. Amanova uses cookies responsibly, creating a great experience for you while respecting your privacy.
The cookies received from banner ads go directly to the ad company, and we do not have access to this information. The non-personally identifiable information collected in connection with a cookie includes:

  • Browser type (i.e., IE 3.x, etc)
  • Operating system (i.e., Macintosh, PC, etc)
  • IP Address of the machine (browser/ proxy) connecting to Amanova (this is not your email address)

Please note that Amanova advertisers cannot collect any personal information about you (such as your name, address, phone number or email address) when they deliver ads to our website.
In addition, when you click on the outside links that you have added, outside links that we present to you or any of our advertisers' ads, you will be transferred to their respective Web sites. Due to the nature of Internet, we do not control the privacy practices of other sites and we are not responsible for such practices as well as their respective content.

How We Use Your Information

In order to provide a robust experience for our users, we may use the information you provide to email you material about our company or from some of our partners - and we only use your anonymous personal information to do that.
From time to time, we may send you email about information we think you will find useful, including information about new products and services from our selected partners. We observe the strictest anti-spam standards to ensure that you only receive mailings that are relevant to you.

How We Disclose Information

We will never sell, rent, loan or give away your personally identifiable information to third parties without your explicit permission. We may share information about you that is not personally identifiable - it does not contain your name and contact information - with our partners to bring you services that we feel may be beneficial to you. We may at times distribute this anonymous personal information - individually or on an aggregated basis - about our users to advertisers or business partners. As such, your information is still private. We aggregate your information with information supplied by other Amanova users to create a summary of broad demographic profiles of our user base, which contains no personally identifiable information. By sharing this summary information with our partners, we provide advertisements or new features that a broad population will enjoy, yet we do not disclose any personally identifiable data. For example, we provide an aggregated summary such as "18% of users clicked on a specific ad." We never disclose your name or personal profile to our advertisers or partners if you saw or clicked on their advertisements or features unless you have specifically told us this is acceptable.
As with any other Web site, if law enforcement or judicial authorities require Amanova to provide personally identifiable information about a customer - an extremely unlikely event - we must cooperate if they support their requirement with the necessary legal documentation.
As we continue to develop our business, we might sell or buy assets. In such transactions, customer information generally is one of the transferred business assets. Also, in the event that Amanova, part of, or substantially all of its assets are acquired, customer information may be one of the transferred assets.
