Will an online store keep my personal information private?

Online merchants have varying policies on how they will or will not use your personal information. For example, some may monitor your shopping activity in order to suggest items that you may like. Others may sell your contact information to other companies for telemarketing or spam purposes. Most retailers have a privacy policy posted on their website. If you don’t agree or are uncomfortable with any aspect of their policy, it is best to just not purchase anything from them.

If there is no privacy policy posted at all, do not purchase anything from them.

This year mobile shopping is expected to rise as the new, convenient, easy-touch consumerism. I believe it.
