Information We Use & How It is Collected:
Your IP Address An Internet Protocol (IP) address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer every time you browse the Internet. When users request a page from our site, our servers log the user's current IP address. We use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our servers and to administer our Web site. We do not link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable. This means that a user session will be tracked, but the user will be anonymous.
Other Information We Collect:
When you purchase a product we ask you for information such as name, address, and credit card information. We store and use this information so we can process your order. If necessary, we might use this information to contact you for help processing your order. From time to time we send out notices by email of special offers or sales on our site. If for any reason, you do not want to receive these notifications, just email us at contact@SwankPets.com, or contact us using one of the methods listed below under How to Contact Us. Each email offer also includes simple instructions on how to remove your e-mail address from future mailings.
Whenever you send us personal correspondence, such as e-mail or letters, or if other users or third parties send us correspondence about your activities or postings on the site, we may collect and store such information. From time to time, SwankPets.com holds contests and sweepstakes. We will collect and store all information relating to such contests and sweepstakes. SwankPets.com might purchase information from third parties in order to supplement the information we have received from our customers.
Removing Your Information from Our Records If for some reason, you want us to remove your credit card and contact information from our database, we will, but only after all of your transactions have been completed. All you have to do is send us e-mail at contact@SwankPets.com, or contact us using one of the methods listed below under How to Contact Us. Such information, however, is never completely removed from our database archives because we routinely back up our servers for disaster recovery and tax-record purposes.
Disclosure of Information to Third Parties Personal Information Personal information includes your name, e-mail address, mailing address, method of payment information and other data that identifies you as an individual. Your personal information is used by SwankPets.com, our suppliers and shippers in order to process and ship your orders. SwankPets.com does not sell, trade, rent or release your personal information to third parties. If we do so in the future, you will have the opportunity to "opt-out" beforehand.
Aggregate Information SwankPets.com occasionally shares aggregate data about customers, traffic patterns, sales, and other site information with partners, vendors, and other reputable third parties. This data, however, does not contain any personally identifying information. For example, we don't disclose that you purchased a specific product, but we might share statistics on how many customers have purchased a specific product.
