This Privacy Policy applies to personally identifiable information we collect on the Site. Your use of the Site is subject to this Privacy Policy. Please read this Privacy Policy carefully to understand how we treat information collected on the Site. This Privacy Policy may change from time to time, so please check back periodically.

Privacy and Security

It is important to us that you feel confident about the security of the Site and the privacy of the information you provide to us. Questions regarding this statement should be directed to: info@shopfruit.com.

AAI maintains commercially reasonable safeguards to ensure the security, integrity and privacy of personally identifiable information submitted to the Site, and we periodically review and update security measures in light of current technologies.

Information We Collect

Although a significant amount of the Site is available without registration, in order to take advantage of some of the Site's features, you will be asked to provide personal information.

In addition, you may choose to provide AAI with personal information if you contact us by email to info@shopfruit.com. AAI will treat any personal information received at this email address with the same privacy standards as information sent through registration pages on the site.

Surveys

Now and then, FOTL or another company selected by AAI, may offer you the opportunity to participate in customer satisfaction, store improvement, or other business-related surveys. You may be asked to provide certain membership information to participate. All surveys are optional.

Cookies

Put simply, a cookie is a small piece of information that Web sites use to remember information about user connections. AAI uses a randomly generated cookie which contains no personally identifiable information and allows you to navigate and use the search capabilities of the Site.

You can choose to disable cookies by deselecting that option under browser preferences. When you disable cookies, you can still browse the Site. Be warned, though, disabling cookies can also interrupt audio and cause breaks in navigation, reducing the functionality of the Site. AAI takes no responsibility for determining if your browser settings allow the storage of cookies on your computer or elsewhere.

Usage Tracking

The Site's database tracks the traffic throughout the Site and automatically collects Site usage information from you when you visit the Site, such as IP addresses, browser types, operating systems, domain names, access times and referring website addresses. This information is used to compile overall statistics and is not recorded at an individual level. The statistics help us decide which products and services best serve our members and guests.

Aggregate Information

AAI uses aggregate information from demographic surveys and traffic patterns to customize the Site. State-of-the-art comparison technology allows us to use this information to make recommendations to individual members based on previous traffic patterns and purchases.

The Site uses information only on an aggregate level and does not track information about individuals.

Sharing Information

Aggregate information may be shared with partners third party service providers to plan advertising or promotions. We do not share any individual information with third party service providers.

The Site has strict guidelines requiring all third parties to keep and treat any shared personally identifiable information confidential in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

We may also disclose your information in connection with any merger or consolidation with, or sale of all or substantially all of our assets to a third party, provided that such third party agrees to comply with this Privacy Policy. In the event AAI sells its assets, including its database, your personal information will be transferred to the purchaser.
