Protection of Your Personal Information
Hola America® takes reasonable precautions to protect Personal Information. We have invested in and deployed technological and physical security measures to protect the Personal Information and other information that we collect. For instance, the when Our registration form asks You to enter Personal Information, that information is encrypted and is protected with the encryption software most commonly deployed in the ecommerce industry, Secured Socket Layer (“SSL”). If you use an SSL-enabled Internet browser, such as used in the current versions of Microsoft Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator, your transmissions of Personal Information to Us through them will be secured through SSL technology. You can verify whether the information that is transmitted is using SSL encryption by confirming the presence of a “closed lock” (for users of Microsoft Internet Explorer) or a “solid key” (for users of Netscape Navigator) symbol on the bottom bar of your browser window. To learn more about SSL, follow this link to http://www.verisign.com/site/ssl.html.
Accuracy of Personal Information and Customer Access to Personal Information
Hola America® takes reasonable steps to make sure that the Personal Information You provide is accurate, complete and up-to-date for the purposes for which it is collected and processed. Upon written request to [email protected] or via a password-protected profile available on the Website, You can learn whether Hola America® holds Personal Information about You. However, any information collected in connection with, or in anticipation of, any claim or legal proceeding will not be made available to you. You will not be charged for making this request.

Transfer of Data
The Personal Information that We collect may be stored and processed on servers located in various countries, including servers located outside of your home country. The laws of other countries may not provide the same degree of protection for your Personal Information as your home country.

It is possible that these websites have privacy policies and standards that are different than those of Hola America®. This Privacy Statement applies only to Personal Information that is acquired by Us on the Website. Hola America® accepts no responsibility or liability for our Customers’ use of other websites.
Hola America’s Refer-A-Friend function on the Website allows You to recommend Hola America® to your friends and family. To do so, You must provide the e-mail addresses of the persons You are referring. By providing the e-mail addresses, You are giving us permission to send an e-mail invitation in your name. Friends will be eligible to receive an e-mail invitation if they are not current or former Customers and they have not already been told about Hola America® by another Customer through the Refer-A-Friend service. Information entered by You for Refer-A-Friend will be used only for the purposes of generating e-mail messages to these potential Hola America® Customers.
Refer-A-Friend is intended to be used only by our Customers to tell their friends and family about Hola America’s service. Hola America® does not condone spamming. Spamming includes, but is not limited to, providing Hola America® with the e-mail addresses of people who are not known to You and entering e-mail addresses that are found on a mass mailing list.
If We determine that a Customer is improperly using Refer-A-Friend, We may, in our sole discretion, block the Customer from using the Website or cancel Customer’s service, in addition to any other remedies permitted by applicable law.
Hola America® is not liable for any direct, indirect, or consequential damages due to the use of the Refer-A-Friend service.

Children under 13 years of age are not permitted to be Hola America® Customers. Children under 13 should not send Us any information about themselves. If a child under 13 submits information through any part of Our Website, and We become aware that the person submitting the information is a child, We will attempt to delete this information as soon as possible. Because We do not knowingly collect any personal information about children under 13, We do not knowingly use or disclose such information.
