TYPES OF INFORMATION THAT MAY BE COLLECTED.

We may collect personally-identifiable information and non-personally identifiable information when you use our websites. Personally-identifiable information is information that can be used to identify you personally, either alone or in combination with other information (“Personal Information”), and non-personally identifiable information cannot be used to identify a specific individual (together with the Personal Information, your “Information”). The Personal Information collected through our website is used to facilitate the transactions or information you may request, and otherwise as described in this Privacy Policy. For example, we may collect Personal Information if you sign up for a subscription service, or inquire about our dog training or day care services, request other information from us, subscribe to any of our online newsletters or email lists, or if you provide information through our website for any other reasons.

The Personal Information collected will vary depending on the nature of your interactions with our websites and your specific requests, but it may include your name, email address, mailing address, phone number, or other information that can be used to identify you personally, as well as information relating to your dog. 

We do not have access to financial account data in unencrypted form through our websites. Rather, we use third party service providers to process all payment transactions for our websites (whether the payment is by credit card, PayPal, or otherwise). Although these third party processors will notify us if your payment has cleared, and may submit some of your Personal Information to us, they will not provide your credit card or other payment account information to us, and the third party will be solely responsible for any issues that may arise with your payment transaction.
