1) The Personally Identifiable Information Collected
You provide certain personal information to us when you do any of the following: Create an account on iLoveDogFriendly.com; place orders through the website; register for email services; or send email messages, submit forms or send other information to us. We may also collect personal information at other points on our site that state that personal information is being collected. In the event of a complaint, we may also receive personally identifiable information about you from other parties in our network or from other users or third parties who may communicate information to us about you in relation to that complaint.
2) The Organization Collecting the Information
i Love Dogs, Inc. owns and operates the iLoveDogFriendly.com website and is the company that collects personal information on this website. Our mailing address is P.O. Box 3221, Lakewood, CA 90711. Customer service inquiries can be made through our Contact Us page. Our servers automatically collect information about the sites users visit and the pages viewed within the iLoveDogFriendly.com website, but in these instances, we do not obtain personally identifiable information about you. We use a cookie to assign a user ID that automatically identifies your computer when you visit the site. The cookies are stored on your hard drive, not on our site. You may decline our cookies if your browser permits, but some parts of our site may not work properly if you do so.
3) How the Information Is Used and Disclosed to Third Parties
As a general practice, we do not provide your personally identifiable information to third parties. For example, we do not sell your email address or your name and personal demographic information to mass marketers. However, on particular pages where we ask for your personally identifiable information, we may note that the data we are collecting will be shared with third parties, in which case those disclosures shall override anything to the contrary in this policy. We will never share your information with a third party that does not contractually agree to maintain the confidentiality of that information using reasonable security measures.
In some cases, we use your personally identifiable information to provide information to you, such as to email newsletters you have requested, to target special offers to you, or to personalize the site in accordance with your requests.
In some situations, we share your personally identifiable information with third parties who provide services to our site in order to enhance the functionality available to you on our web site, and to provide you with new products and services.
Any time you voluntarily disclose personally identifiable information, that information may be used by third parties. In these cases, your choice to disclose personally identifiable information is voluntary.
We use your information on an aggregated basis to operate and enhance our site. We also use this data, both aggregated and personally identifiable, to enhance your on-site experience by displaying content and messages that we believe will be of interest to you.
Finally, in the event that i Love Dogs, Inc. is acquired by (or all or substantially all of our assets are acquired by) another party, or we are merged into another party, that new party or successor company will have all of the rights set forth in this policy, and will not be considered a “third party” but rather an extension of i Love Dogs, Inc.
4) How to Control the Collection, Use and Distribution of Your Information
You can control the content of your personal information by following the instructions in section 5. Please note that if you provide any information on your own or directly to parties who provide service to our website or whom you might otherwise encounter or learn of through our website, different rules may apply to their use or disclosure of the personal information you disclose to them. We encourage you to investigate and ask questions before disclosing information to third parties.
5) Correcting, Updating and Deleting Personal Information
You can access, update and delete your personal information by clicking “Edit Profile” and following the instructions on that page. If you delete information, it cannot be used by us or disclosed to third parties in the future. Even if you delete or change some personal information in our database, it may still be stored on other databases (including those kept for archival purposes).
6) Our Security Procedures
We have established and maintain reasonable security procedures to protect the confidentiality, security and integrity of your personally identifiable information. “Perfect security,” however, does not exist on the Internet.
Although your privacy is very important to us, due to the existing legal regulatory and security environment, we cannot fully ensure that your private communications and other personally identifiable information will never be disclosed to third parties. For example, we may be forced to disclose information to the government or third parties under certain circumstances, or third parties may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications. Additionally, in the unlikely event we need to investigate or resolve possible problems or inquiries, we can disclose any information about you to private entities, law enforcement or other government officials as we, in our sole discretion, believe necessary or appropriate.
We hope this policy clarifies our policies and procedures regarding your personal information. We may amend this policy at any time, and send the amended policy to the email address you provide to us or post it on our home page.
