What information does Wasabi Ventures collect and use and what ways (if any) does Wasabi Ventures share this information with third parties?
Wasabi Ventures may collect any or all of the following types of information: (a) traffic or clickstream data, (b) cookies, (c) Internet Protocol (“IP”) addresses, or (d) contact information and other personally identifying information. Wasabi Ventures's collection and use of each type of data is described below, as well as the ways (if any) in which the data may be shared with third parties.
a. Traffic or Clickstream Data. Data about traffic and usage, including keywords, search results, bids, time of search, time of click, browser type and default language setting, is not personally identifying or identifiable, and is not supplemented or combined with personally identifying or identifiable information. Wasabi Ventures may share information it collects with certain selected third parties, but only in anonymous form. Importantly, all information collected from a search query is recorded on a non-personally identifiable basis and is kept anonymous. Wasabi Ventures collects some information regarding use of the Services by observing browser functions and the files (pages) users access. For example, Wasabi Ventures's servers collect information about the most frequently searched terms to help provide the most relevant search results, information about usage to check for fraudulent behavior or other abnormalities and to ensure that our Services are technically superior. In addition to the foregoing applications, Wasabi Ventures uses the information (in aggregate form) to better design and market the Services.
c. IP Addresses. An Internet Protocol (“IP”) address is a set of numbers that is automatically assigned to your computer each time you connect to the Internet. When you use your web browser to request a web page from another computer on the Internet, your web browser automatically gives that computer your IP address so that the data you request can be sent to your computer. Through your IP address, Wasabi Ventures may track your Internet usage, including identifying Affiliates and geographic location, which may be disclosed to advertisers, search engines and other partners.. Wasabi Ventures may strip a portion of numbers from your IP address and provide such information to our third-party advertising companies. This information collected by Wasabi Ventures though your IP address is not personally identifiable.
d. Contact Information or Personally Identifying Information. Wasabi Ventures may obtain access to your name, e-mail address, physical address, telephone number, fax number, social security number, federal tax ID number, credit card number and other contact or personally identifiable information.
When you become an advertiser with Wasabi Ventures, your contact information is used for billing, marketing and customer care purposes as well as for the purpose of approving and enabling your participation in the Services. Contact information specifically provided in connection with problems, comments or requests is used only to respond to those problems, comments or requests. This contact information is only provided to a third party if necessary to respond to the comment, problem or request. Wasabi Ventures disclaims all responsibility and will not be liable to you, however, for any disclosure of that information by any such third party...
Wasabi Ventures may also disclose the information it collects in aggregated and non-personally identifiable form to promote and market the Services.
Wasabi Ventures employs other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf, such as hosting and other technical services. To perform those functions, it may be necessary for these parties to obtain access to Wasabi Ventures’s servers that may contain personally identifying information. These parties are bound by appropriate confidentiality and security measures. Wasabi Ventures may also disclose personally identifiable information to its independent auditors, consultants and attorneys, all of whom are obliged to keep such information confidential.
Wasabi Ventures may also disclose the information it collects if required by law or to comply with a government agency request. In addition, as companies grow and change, we may buy and sell companies, subsidiaries and assets. In such transactions, customer information is generally one of the transferred business asset. In the event that Wasabi Ventures is acquired, you information may be one of the transferred assets.

However, data security is a constantly evolving art and science.
