- We collect information related to your use of the Site:
- Such information is used to provide you the services on the Site:
- You have the right to request the deletion of your personal information at any time and for any reason by contacting: firstname.lastname@example.org
- Please Read the Whole Policy
Please read the entire policy and make sure you fully understand our practices before using our services. If you do not agree with our practices you must immediately leave the Site. If you have any questions after fully reading the policy, please contact us at: email@example.com.
- What Information Is Collected?
We collect two types of information from visitors and users. The first, unidentified and non-identifiable information (“Anonymous Information”) does not enable The Dogist to identify the visitor or user from whom it was collected. The Anonymous Information collected by The Dogist consists of (1) the date, time and length of your visit; (2) your Internet browser, operating system or Internet service provider; and (3) the referring site, advertisement or email linking to and from the Site. The Dogist may, from time to time, also collect information regarding your wireless device (if any) and your wireless communications carrier. The Dogist may aggregate, use and share Anonymous Information with third parties for marketing and advertising purposes.
The second type of information we collect is individually identifiable information, meaning information that can identify an individual or may, with reasonable efforts, lead to the identification of an individual (“PII”). PII collected by The Dogist consists of contact details provided by users when creating a user account (“User Account”) or submitting content (e-mail address, full name, date of birth, dog’s name, Instagram handle, address, company name, photos, captions, video links, contact information, date of birth, resume, cover letter), billing details (name, physical billing address, payment method, and transaction details, which are only collected from users who opt-in to use paid services and are collected directly by Shopify), browsing and usage session details (IP address, geo-location, device unique identifiers), details regarding connected third-party accounts (PayPal, Google, Facebook), correspondence through the Site, and any other PII provided directly by users and visitors to The Dogist. If any Anonymous Information is linked to PII, it is treated as PII as long as the connection exists. PII is never used by The Dogist to make automated decisions. The Dogist never collects “special categories of personal data” such as medical conditions, race, political opinions, religion, union membership etc..
Please note that your name may be publicly available on the Internet when you use some features of the Site, such as through submitting content or entering a sweepstakes. Use your discretion when using these services. It is your responsibility to review what information you wish to share. You are solely responsible for any public content you submit. You may request the deletion of any content and information you have provided that has not already been published by The Dogist by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- How Is Information Collected?
The Dogist collects information about you only if we have a reason for such collection, such as to provide the services, to communicate with you, or to improve our Site. Information is collected in three ways:
(b) Information you provide The Dogist. When you submit content, we collect the PII you provide us, similarly when you sign into The Dogist via third-party party services such as Facebook, and when you pay for services we collect PII. We also store all communications you have directly with us (support tickets, emails).
(c) Information obtained from outside sources. You can learn more about these practices in Section 7 below.
- Why Is Information Collected?
Both Anonymous Information and PII is collected so that The Dogist may provide the services on the Site. This includes: correspondence from The Dogist regarding your content, to further develop and improve the services based on user preferences, to provide customer assistance and technical support, to customize your site experience, to email newsletters and other marketing activities, to create aggregated statistical data from Anonymous Information which The Dogist or its partners may use to provide or improve their respective services, and to enhance data and fraud security capabilities.
- Where is Information Stored?
The Dogist uses industry standard technologies to safeguard your data (both Anonymous Data and PII) from unauthorized use and disclosure and to prohibit possible security breaches of the Site. Unfortunately, no website, computer system or online communication is completely secure. The Dogist cannot guarantee that unauthorized access, hacking, data loss, or other breaches will never occur. Your use of the Site is at your own risk.
Unless otherwise specified, whenever you make a purchase, your financial and other transaction-related information will only be used to process your transaction and will not be stored on our servers or used for marketing purposes.
Data will be maintained, processed and stored by The Dogist in the United States of America or other jurisdictions, as necessary, for proper delivery of the services or as required by law.
- Requesting Deletion of Information and Your Rights
Upon written request The Dogist will provide you with information about whether we hold any of your PII. You may access, correct, or request deletion of your PII or opt-out of any emails by emailing: email@example.com We will respond to your request within a timeframe imposed by local laws or a reasonable timeframe.
Please note that permanently deleting your The Dogist information erases all of your information from our system. After completing this process your data will be removed permanently, and The Dogist will not be able to restore or retrieve your data in the future.
