Privacy Policy

This is the privacy policy for The Paw Tracker United States web site (the “The Paw Tracker Website “).

Material in the The Paw Tracker Website and any other Internet web site owned, operated, licensed, or controlled by the The Paw Tracker or any of its related, affiliated, or subsidiary companies (together, “The Paw Tracker”). This Privacy Policy governs only the The Paw Tracker Website in the United States and does not cover websites for any other The Paw Tracker website or any subsidiaries and affiliates of The Paw Tracker (collectively, “Affiliates”).

This The Paw Tracker Website is made available by The Paw Tracker (“we”, “us” or “our”). This Privacy Policy sets forth our policies regarding the collection, use and disclosure of certain information relating to your use of this The Paw Tracker Website. This Privacy Policy is incorporated into, and made a part of the Terms of Use Agreement which governs your use of this The Paw Tracker Website in general, and your use of this The Paw Tracker Website signifies your understanding and acceptance of the terms of this Privacy Policy and the Terms of Use  Agreement. If you do not agree to this Privacy Policy and/or the Terms of Use Agreement, you are not authorized to use, and please do not use, this The Paw Tracker Website. We reserve the right to modify this Privacy Policy at any time, so you are encouraged to review this Privacy Policy from time to time or we may notify you of the existence of a revised privacy policy. Changes and additions to this Privacy Policy are effective when they are posted on this The Paw Tracker Website. Your continued use of this The Paw Tracker Website following the posting of changes to this Privacy Policy will mean you accept those changes.

Your privacy on the Internet is important to us. As part of the operation of this The Paw Tracker Website, we gather certain types of information about users of the The Paw Tracker Website (“Users”). We hope that this disclosure will help increase your confidence in our website and enhance your experience here involving the collection of personally identifiable information (“Personal Information”). We will protect the privacy and security of your Personal Information as set forth herein. This Privacy Policy covers the information you provide to us by or through this The Paw Tracker Website. Our Privacy Policy does not apply to third party Web sites that may be accessible through this The Paw Tracker Website. Please be aware that we have no control over such Web sites. We encourage you to read the privacy policies of those third party Web sites to learn if and how they collect and use information about you.

Children. Protecting the privacy of children is especially important. We recognize the importance of safeguarding the privacy of children and encourage parents to check and monitor their children’s use of online activities regularly. The The Paw Tracker Website supports and complies with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”) and other laws. The The Paw Tracker Website is not aimed at nor intended for children under the age of 13. If you are under the age of 13, please DO NOT USE the The Paw Tracker Website. Our website does not accept registration from children under the age of 13. No personally identifiable information (as defined in the COPPA, 15 U.S.C. Section 6501) is purposefully or knowingly collected from children under the age of 13 by the The Paw Tracker Website without parental consent. Every User hereby agrees that all information you provide, including but not limited to age, shall be truthful and correct. The The Paw Tracker Website will not condition a child’s participation in an online activity upon the child providing more personally identifiable information than is reasonably necessary for participation in such activity.

How Your Information Is Stored – Information held about you (for example, your e-mail Newsletter subscriptions) is held in a database. The database is protected by a firewall as well as host-based security. The data is not transmitted over the Internet once it has been stored in the database. If The Paw Tracker ever has a requirement to transmit the data over the Internet (for example, to make an off-site backup) it will be in encrypted form.

Sharing of Information with Service Companies – One of the most valuable assets of our business is you. The Paw Tracker is not in the business of selling information about Users of the The Paw Tracker Website. However, if there is a value for our clients, we will share your information or send you messages on behalf of another company as described below. We will also share information for security reasons. Sometimes companies may be hired by The Paw Tracker to facilitate the sales or delivery of products or services, such as a shipping company for the delivery of packages or promotional literature. In those instances, we need to share your information with those third-party companies. These companies are basically “standing in the shoes” of The Paw Tracker, and they are allowed to use the information only for the purpose intended by the hiring of the company, such as delivering a product or service.

Promotions, Products, or Services – The Paw Tracker may offer promotions (e.g., sweepstakes or contests [hereafter “Promotions”]), sometimes in conjunction with the introduction or sales or products or services or a sponsor or advertiser. We will share your information with these sponsors and advertisers if they need it to send or provide you with promotion literature or documents, a commodity or prize. We may share your information with those sponsors so that they may send you other special promotions which they offer, but only if you give us your permission to do so, and we will endeavor to share it only with that specific sponsor or advertiser. In addition, The Paw Tracker occasionally may send e-mail promotions to the Users on behalf of third-party sponsors. Again, we only will send these promotions to you if you’ve given your permission. Separate registration of information may be required to enter Promotions. Registration for Promotions may require the submission of your first and last name, street address, city, state and zip code, email address, telephone number and date of birth. Additional Personal Information may be requested depending on the specific Promotion, but submission of such information may be optional. The Promotion’s entry page and/or Rules will provide the specific requirements. You may also have the opportunity to opt-in to special Promotions or offers from our advertisers in connection with many of these types of Promotions.

Opt-Out Procedures Regarding Promotions and Offers – The Paw Tracker or its parent or advertisers, may contact you or other Users who have registered for, or participated in, various The Paw Tracker Website events, Promotions, or transactions, or we may send offers for the purchase of service or products that may be of interest to Users. You may “opt out” of receiving marketing and promotional e-mails or text messages from us at any time by clicking on the “unsubscribe” link in the email. However, we, or our Affiliates, may continue to contact you via email for administrative or informational purposes, including follow-up messages regarding the administration of your account, any services, features or functions you have enrolled in or registered to use, any Promotions you have participated in or have entered, goods and/or services you have ordered, or other transactions you have undertaken by way of The Paw Tracker Website. In the event that we, or our Affiliates, unknowingly send an email or text message to a child (a person under the age of 13 years) who has registered with the The Paw Tracker Website in violation of our Terms of Use Agreement, the child or the child’s parent or legal guardian always has the right to unsubscribe (opt-out) from receiving future emails or text messages via the unsubscribe mechanism contained in the email or message, or to request termination of the child’s registration and status as a registered user with the The Paw Tracker Website. The same process for unsubscribing is available to a parent or legal guardian of a minor (a person under the age of 18 years, or the age of majority in your state).

Content Partners – On occasion the The Paw Tracker Website may provide content that is created by a third-party partner website. In some instances the third-party sites will collect information in order to facilitate the transaction or to make the use of their content more productive and efficient. In these circumstances the information collected is shared between The Paw Tracker and our third-party sponsors.

Third-Party Advertisers and Network Advertisers – To help increase privacy protections for our Users, The Paw Tracker may allow advertising, if any, on its site from only those companies that have their own privacy policy. Once you have clicked on an advertisement and have left the The Paw Tracker Website, our privacy policy no longer applies. You must read the privacy policy of the advertiser or subsequently visited site to see how your Personal Information will be handled on those sites. In addition, many business advertisements may be managed and placed on our site by third-party companies. These “network advertisers” collect non-Personal Information when you click on or scan one of their banner advertisements. The information is collected using technology, so you may not realize it’s being collected. The network advertisers collect this information so that they may show you ads that are more relevant or interesting to you.

Purchase or Sale of Businesses – Online business is still in a very early stage and is changing and evolving rapidly. As The Paw Tracker continually looks for ways to improve its business, we may buy or sell a company. If we buy or sell a business, the names collected will likely be transferred as a part of the sale. Information about registrants will be used in the aggregate. However, if we buy a business, we will honor the requests that customers made of that business regarding e-mail communications. In the event that we sell a business, we will do everything in our power to ensure that the e-mail communications requests you made of us are honored.
