We collect the personal information you provide us and we store and maintain that information, as well as email messages we receive from you, on our secure servers. We will never rent, sell or share information that personally identifies you for marketing purposes without your permission.
Information Collected About You
In order to give you the best experience on our site, Dogwoof may collect various types of information about you, including personal and demographic information. Personal information is information that can be directly associated with a specific person such as a user's name, address, telephone number, or e-mail address. Demographic information is anonymous information, which may include age/date of birth, gender, geographic area, hobbies, interests, and favourites. Demographic information is not considered personal information unless it is linked to personal information about a specific user.
We will only collect the information deemed reasonably necessary to fulfill your online requests and our legitimate business objectives.
How We Use The Information We Collect
We may use and/or request personal and demographic information for any of the following purposes: to send e-mail newsletters, for participation in online contests, and e-mail correspondence about special offers, promotional announcements and consumer surveys.
In addition, Dogwoof may respond to e-mail correspondence and communications if such correspondence includes a return e-mail address. Because an e-mail address is personal information, Dogwoof protects the privacy of the sender by limiting access to these e-mail messages. For quality control purposes, e-mail messages may be kept for a period of time. There may, however, be certain cases where hard copies may be kept on file. Information from all e-mail messages received will not be used for marketing purposes and will be maintained in a secure location.
In addition to the uses specified above, and so we can constantly improve the products and services we provide you and to better meet your needs, we also use your personal and demographic information for our internal marketing, demographic studies, and for quality assurance.
Disclosure of Personal Information
Dogwoof does not sell or rent personal information to third parties. We may share personal information with vendors who help us perform various internal functions necessary to operate our business. We may also disclose personal information in the good faith belief that we are required to do so by law, or that doing so is reasonably necessary to comply with legal process; respond to any claims; or, to protect the rights, property, or personal safety of Dogwoof, our customers, or the public. In addition, information about our customers, including personal information, may be disclosed as part of any merger, sale, transfer of company assets, or acquisition, if permitted by and done in accordance with applicable laws.
Any exceptions to this policy of sharing your personal information with a partner company will be done only with your permission. Dogwoof also reserves the right to disclose information when required by law.
We also provide analyses of our users in the aggregate to prospective partners, advertisers and other third parties. We do this so that we and our advertisers can understand you better, and so we can keep bringing you first-rate services. At no time, will we disclose personal information about specific users.
Dogwoof will obtain email consent from any user if the company is going to be using the information collected in a manner different from that stated in this policy.
