Privacy and Data Security Policy
Assurance of Your Privacy:
We know that you care how information about you and your pets is used and we appreciate your confidence that we will do so carefully and sensibly. By visiting our website and using our services, you accept the practices described in this policy. This policy explains the information we collect from you, how it is used and safeguarded, and how to contact us if you have any concerns.
Information We Collect:
- Information You Give Us. When you participate in a transaction with us we ask for certain personal information such as your name, shipping address, email address, and payment account information. We use this information to process your transaction. We also use this information to contact you in case we have any trouble processing your transaction. We reserve the right to consolidate your information so that we can constantly improve our product and service offering to you.
- Email Communications. To help us make emails more useful and interesting, we may receive a confirmation when you open e-mail from us if your computer supports such capabilities.
How Information We Collect Is Used:
Information about our users is an important part of our business, we guard it well, and we are not in the business of selling it to others. We share user information only as described below and with entities that either are subject to this policy or follow practices at least as protective as those contained in this Policy.
- Third-Party Service Providers. We may employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. Examples include things like processing enrollments and payments. Our service providers have access only to personal information needed to perform their functions, and may not use it for other purposes.
- Business Transfers. As we continue to develop our business, we might sell or buy stores, subsidiaries, or business units. In such transactions, customer information generally is one of the transferred business assets but remains subject to the promises made in any pre-existing policy. Also, in the event that My Pet Credentials or substantially all of its assets are acquired, customer information will of course be one of the transferred assets. Again, such information will remain subject to the promises made in any pre-existing policy.
Our data security system is considered among the best in the industry. This security system is for your protection. We use Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption when transmitting certain kinds of information such as payment information. Still, it is important for you to protect against unauthorized access to your password, and to your computer as well. For example, be sure to sign off when finished using a shared computer, and to never transmit sensitive information over an unsecured wireless connection. We take the security of your data very seriously and employ all reasonable measures to protect it. Ultimately, no system for transmitting data over the internet is completely secure and we do not guarantee the security of data transmitted between your computer and our servers or otherwise in connection with our website and apps, and you provide your information to us at your risk.
