Privacy Policy

Petsish.com is the sole owner of this website. Our visitor’s privacy on the Internet is very essential to us. At Petsish.com, we want to make your online experience pleasing and safe. Because we collect certain types of information about our users, we feel you should understand our policy and the terms of use surrounding the capture and use of that information. This privacy statement discloses the information we/our partners/ advertising companies gather and how the information is used.

WHAT IS PRIVACY POLICY?

On the Web, a privacy policy is a legal notice on a website describing how personal information is collected and used by the owners of the website.

Some jurisdictions require that sites display privacy policies. Some advertising programs require it as well. In general, it’s a good idea for any site to display a privacy policy, not just for legal/contract requirements but because it’s good for the visitors to a site to know what information is being collected about them and what’s happening to it.

PRIVACY

The privacy of our visitors is very important to us.

Here is information on what types of personal information we receive and gather when you use and visit this website and how we protect your information. At Petsish.com, we never sell your personal information to third parties.

LOG FILES

As with most websites, we collect and use the data contained in log files. The information in the log files includes your IP (internet protocol) address, your ISP (internet service provider, such as Comcast), the browser you used to visit our site (such as Firefox or Chrome), the time you visited our site and the pages you visited throughout our site.

COOKIES AND WEB BEACONS

We use cookies to store information, such as your personal preferences when you visit our site. This could include the ability to login to some of our features, such as commenting.

We also use third party advertisements to support this site. Some of these advertisers may use technology such as cookies and web beacons when they advertise on our site, which will also send the advertisers information including your IP address, your ISP, the web browser you used to visit our site, and in some cases, whether or not you have Flash installed. This is typically used for geotargeting purposes (showing ads for local businesses) or showing certain ads based on specific sites you have visited in the past.

GOOGLE ADVERTISING

Any advertisements served by Google, Inc. and affiliated companies may be controlled using cookies. These cookies allow Google to display ads based on your visits to this site and other sites that use Google advertising services. Learn how to opt out of Google’s cookie usage. As mentioned above, any tracking done by Google through cookies and other mechanisms is subject to Google’s own privacy policies.

AMAZON DISCLAIMER

Petsish.com is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to Amazon.com.

Additionally, Petsish.com participates in various other affiliate programs, and we sometimes get a commission through purchases made through our links.

The information in our articles are NOT intended to replace a one-on-one relationship with a qualified pet’s health care professional and are not intended as medical advice.

USAGE TRACKING

We track user traffic patterns throughout all of our websites. However, we do not correlate this information with data about individual users. Statistics are broken down according to a user’s domain name, browser type, and MIME type by reading this data from the browser string (information contained in every user’s browser).

We track and catalog the search terms that a user enters in our Search function, but this tracking is not associated with individual users. We use tracking information to determine which areas of our sites users like and don’t like based on traffic to those areas. We do not track what individual users read, but rather how well each page performs overall. This helps us continue to build a better website for you.

CHILDREN POLICY

We will never request personally identifiable information from any person under the age of 18 without requesting parental consent.

Protecting the privacy of young children is especially important. Petsish.com does not knowingly collect or solicit personal information from anyone under the age of 13 or knowingly allow such persons to register with the Service. If we become aware that we have collected personal information from a child under age 13 without verification of parental consent, we take steps to remove that information.

USE OF INFORMATION

We act upon information supplied to us voluntarily by our users to enhance their experience in our network of sites, whether it’s to provide interactive or personalized elements on the sites or to prepare future content based on the interests of our users.

As stated above, we may use information that users voluntarily provide in order to send out electronic newsletters and to enable users to participate in polls, surveys, message boards, and forums. We may send out newsletters to subscribers on a regular schedule (depending on the newsletter), and may occasionally send out special editions when we think subscribers might be particularly interested in something we are doing. We do not share newsletter mailing lists with any third parties, including advertisers, sponsors, or partners.

We create reports on user demographics and traffic patterns for advertisers, sponsors, and partners. This allows our advertisers to advertise more effectively and allows our website users to see advertisements that are pertinent to their needs. Because we don’t track the usage patterns of individual users, an advertiser or sponsor will never know that a specific user clicked their ad.

SHARING OF THE INFORMATION

We use the above-described information to create content to suit your needs and help our advertisers better understand our audience’s demographics. This is essential to keeping our service free. We will not share information about individual users with any third party, except to comply with the law or valid legal process or to protect the safety of our users or the public.

SECURITY POLICY

We operate on secure data networks protected by industry standard firewall and password protection systems. Our security and privacy policies are reviewed and enhanced as necessary and only authorized individuals have access to the information provided by our customers.

YOUR CONSENT

By using our website, you consent to the collection and use of this information. If we change our privacy policy, we will post changes on this page so that you are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances we may be required to disclose it.

CONTACT INFORMATION
