Abeona International Inc. (hereafter referred to as Abeona) has always been committed to maintaining the confidentiality and security of all personal information. This Privacy Statement sets out our responsibilities regarding the collection, use and disclosure of your personal information. In the course of our business, it is necessary to collect, record, store, process, transmit, and otherwise handle Personal Information about individuals. We take these activities seriously and seek to provide fair, secure, and appropriate methods for the handling of Personal Information. All such activities are intended to be consistent with both generally accepted privacy ethics and standard business practices.
The purpose for which Personal Information is collected will be specified on or before the collection of the information, and any change of purpose will be communicated to you. This consent will be expressed in writing (by signing the forms on which the information is collected), given verbally, electronically, or through an authorized representative. In limited circumstances, consent can also be implied.
Consent to collect, use and disclose Personal Information can be withdrawn at any time, subject to legal and contractual restrictions and reasonable notice.
We will limit collection, use, disclosure and retention of personal information.

We do not seek sensitive information (e.g., data relating to race or ethnic origin, religious beliefs, physical or mental health or sexual orientation) from our clients or visitors. Only where necessary in the performance of services as requested by a client and with the explicit client's consent would we collect or use such information.

Use and Disclosure of Personal Information
When you make a private charter inquiry with Abeona, we only collect the personal information which is necessary in order for us to contact you and provide our services. We do not share personal information with third parties until you confirm by signature the acceptance of an Air Charter Agreement unless we are required by law to do so. Once you sign the charter contract you authorize Abeona to collect and share the personal information of those who will be on board the aircraft, along with any other details we are required to collect, for the aircraft operator including their flight crew. The aircraft operator requires the personal information of all individuals, as well as information on any pets, who will be on board their aircraft for security purposes, and if applicable, for customs and immigration purposes where flights cross international borders. Your information could be shared with government bodies responsible for ensuring aviation security and the integrity of customs and immigration laws.
Retention of Personal Information
Personal information collected by Abeona is retained for as long as it is reasonably required for the purposes for which it was collected, or as required by law, following which it is securely destroyed or made anonymous. If you withdraw your consent to our retaining your personal information, we will advise you as to the consequences, if any, of your doing so.
Abeona takes reasonable precautions and follows industry best practices to make sure it is not inappropriately lost, misused, accessed, disclosed, altered or destroyed. However, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. We cannot ensure the security of the information you transmit to us over the Internet.
