California Judges Association Renews Partnership with Abine to Provide Improved Online Privacy to its Judicial Members

Abine, Inc. announced the renewal of an exclusive partnership with the California Judges Association to provide its DeleteMe service to the Association's judicial members. Abine's DeleteMe is a subscription-based service that finds and removes personal data from some of the large data broker websites and monitors these sites to ensure that data does not return. With a DeleteMe subscription, Abine's privacy experts remove subscribers' personal information from more than 30 of the large people search websites, including BeenVerified.com, PeopleSmart.com, Spokeo.com, and Whitepages.com. Most sites have a unique procedure to remove listings. Abine's DeleteMe operators are experts in each of these website's privacy policies, terms of use and processes to ensure that all personal information is properly and swiftly removed. DeleteMe subscriptions also include monitoring to prevent information from reappearing and provide subscribers with a comprehensive report showing the state of their online privacy. DeleteMe is offered as a one- or two-year subscription for U.S. residents. One- and two-person subscriptions are available.

Abine, Inc. Partners with Zone Labs, LLC, to Launch Do Not Track, a New Feature ZoneAlarm 2013 Security Products

Abine, Inc. partnered with Zone Labs, LLC, to launch Do Not Track, a new feature available in ZoneAlarm 2013 security products. The feature, built from Abine's market-leading DoNotTrackMe (DNTMe) technology, offers millions of ZoneAlarm users a simple, free, and effective way to block online tracking and control data collection as they browse the web. Do Not Track is seamlessly integrated into ZoneAlarm 2013 security products. ZoneAlarm's Do Not Track feature is built from the same proven anti-tracking technology used to power Abine's DNTMe, which has been downloaded more than three million times and blocked more than 285 billion attempts to track its users since its February 2012 launch. DNTMe is a browser add-on that makes it easy for anyone to see when they're being tracked online and stop being profiled by social networks, advertisers, and data collection companies, including Google and Facebook. Once installed, DNTMe blocks more than 200 advertising companies and 630 tracking technologies that collect, use, and sell consumers' personal information. The tool works on all major browsers, including Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, and Safari, and takes a major step toward enabling consumers to control their privacy online. DNTMe can speed up website loading by up to four times and lets consumers see who is tracking them on each website they visit with a simple numbered icon in the corner of their browser windows. Consumers can elect to block or allow tracking at the individual website level. By doing so, consumers regain control over their information while shopping, playing games, socializing, and more, and prevent problems that can occur from profiling such as identity theft, reduced credit score ratings, and loss of employment. DNTMe's technology is more effective than built-in browser privacy features like the Do Not Track header or private browsing mode because it more effectively stops the collection of data about users, rather than simply requesting it.
