Last Updated: August 23, 2022
All references to our ”Website” or “Websites” in this Policy & Notice include all websites owned and operated by AbodebyWerri Limited, including without limit: www.abodebywerri.com.
Security of your Personal Information
We take extensive measures designed to protect your privacy by safeguarding any personal information we collect, provide to third-party service providers and/or store during the course of doing business together. All the information you provide to us is securely maintained and is kept strictly confidential to a level appropriate to the level of sensitivity of the information.
We use a variety of security measures such as restricting employee access to files, data centers, and using locked file cabinets. In addition we make use of electronic security measures such as passwords, personal ID numbers, tokenization and data encryption as appropriate.
Employees must conform to AbodebyWerri’ privacy policies, procedures and code of conduct and observe the highest standards of confidentiality. We subscribe to the general principle that only those employees that need to know the information in order to provide you services have access to your information.
For certain types of online transactions, such as requests for prescription refills, we use a technology called TLS (Transport Layer Security). If your browser is capable of TLS (and most are), your personal information will be automatically encrypted, or encoded, before it is sent over the Internet. The encryption process protects your information, such as phone number, billing and shipping information by scrambling it before it is sent to us from your computer.
For other types of online transactions, and in particular those that involve providing personal financial information such as credit cards, AbodebyWerri has also obtained a digital certificate from COMODO CA Limited, a leading provider of Internet trust services. When you enter a secured portion of our Websites, an image of a closed lock or a solid key should appear in the top bar of your browser window. If you click on this image, a small popup window displaying site-security information will appear. This certificate is confirmation that your personal information is being transmitted in secure (encrypted) form to our AbodebyWerri web server, not to some unknown or unauthorized server.

How we collect automated data: Cookies and other Tracking Technology
We use various forms of technology to carry out our automated data collection (“Tracking Tech”), such as:
Cookies. When you visit our Websites, you will be assigned a “cookie” (a small text file) to be stored on your computer or device. Cookies consist of a unique number that distinguishes you from other visitors. Cookies don’t run code or contain viruses. Cookies store bits of information that we use to help make our Websites work better.
Cookies help to identify you when you visit or return to our Websites. Cookies can be used to offer personalized web page content, remember your preferences, track your activity on the Websites, and to otherwise improve how you interact and experience our Websites.
There are different kinds of cookies:
Some cookies are temporary and are erased when you close your internet browser and leave our Websites, and some are persistent cookies, that remain on your computer when you leave our Websites.
Cookies set by AbodebyWerri on our Websites are called “first party cookies” and help provide a better user experience. Cookies that we allow to be set by third parties on our Websites are called “third party cookies”. Third party cookies allow third party features or functionality to be provided on or through our Websites, such as interactive content, analytics and for advertising purposes.
Analytic cookies help us to understand more about how many visitors we have on our website and how they interact with it. It helps gather information such as the pages you visit but not personal details such as your name or address.
Web Beacons, Pixels & Tags. Web beacons are also known as clear GIFs, web bugs, tracer tags or pixels, and may be used alone or in combination with cookies. These are small objects embedded into a web page on our Websites or other digital properties, and are used for many of the same purposes as cookies and allow us to gather aggregate statistics about website usage patterns, such as how many times a link or a page on a website is visited, how many of our emails were opened, activity generated by emails and support ongoing customer communications.
Web beacons and pixels may also be used to help us optimize and tailor our Websites for customers and provide ads tailored to your interests. They may tell us when an ad we run on another website has been clicked on by a visitor of our Websites and to help us know which ads are more appealing to users. See also OBA section.
Online Interest Based Advertising (OBA)
Online interest based advertising (OBA) is based on your online activities, such as the actions you take when you visit our Websites as well as other third party websites. Tracking Tech collects information about your device (such as IP address) and online activities (such as products viewed) to help determine what types of products, services and advertisements may be of interest to you, rather than simply showing you random ads. OBA allows us to serve you with ads from AbodebyWerri and our vendor partners, that we hope you will find relevant.
Tracking Tech facilitates the sharing of non personally identifiable information about Websites users with third party service and advertising providers, to serve you with relevant ads through their advertising platforms. AbodebyWerri engages with Google and Facebook (including the Facebook Pixel) for the purposes of OBA, in addition to other advertisers and social networking platforms from time to time.
AbodebyWerri may use information in a de-identified manner that our customers and AbodebyWerriExtras members have voluntarily provided to us (such as email address, phone number, name, city or postal code) with social networking platforms we work with, like Google and Facebook, to create custom audiences for OBA. No personal information is transferred from AbodebyWerri to the social networking platforms; instead unique values are produced that these platforms can match to information their own users have provided directly to them. The platform can then create custom audiences to serve ads for OBA purposes. A similar process may be used to create custom ‘lookalike’ audiences of individuals who may not be current AbodebyWerri customers, but who we think may also enjoy seeing our ads due to similar demographics and interests. AbodebyWerri does not know the identity of individuals included in custom audiences created for OBA on social networking platforms.
You can opt out from receiving ads relevant to your interests from “third parties” that participate in the Digital Advertising Alliance of Canada (DAAC) program and are identified on their opt-out page https://youradchoices.ca/en/tools. If you elect to opt out of OBA, you will still receive the same number of ads, but they may not be as relevant to you. Opting-out is generally cookie-based and may only affect the specific computer and browser on which the opt out is applied. If you delete your browser cookies and then want to continue to be opted out of interest-based ads, you will need to opt out again.
