Protection of Personal Information
Gabs secures your PII from unauthorized access, use or disclosure by implementing a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your PII. Gabs secures the PII you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. When PII is transmitted to other websites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol. All supplied sensitive/credit information is transmitted via SSL. SSL certificates encrypt communication between the Gabs Services and your web browser, preventing others from eavesdropping.
The Gabs website may use "cookies" to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a webpage server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.
One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you register with Gabs, a cookie helps Gabs recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, etc. When you return to the same Gabs website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the Gabs features that you customized.
