Privacy Policy:

The Pet Supply Guy (“The Pet Supply Guy“) operates ThePetSupplyGuy.com and may operate other websites. It is The Pet Supply Guy’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, The Pet Supply Guy collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. The Pet Supply Guy’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how The Pet Supply Guy’s visitors use its website. From time to time, The Pet Supply Guy may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

The Pet Supply Guy also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on ThePetSupplyGuy.com blogs/sites. The Pet Supply Guy only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog/site where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to The Pet Supply Guy’s websites choose to interact with The Pet Supply Guy in ways that require The Pet Supply Guy to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that The Pet Supply Guy gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up at ThePetSupplyGuy.com to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with The Pet Supply Guy are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, The Pet Supply Guy collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with The Pet Supply Guy. The Pet Supply Guy does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

The Pet Supply Guy may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. The Pet Supply Guy may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, The Pet Supply Guy does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

The Pet Supply Guy discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on The Pet Supply Guy’s behalf or to provide services available at The Pet Supply Guy’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using The Pet Supply Guy’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. The Pet Supply Guy will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, The Pet Supply Guy discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when The Pet Supply Guy believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of The Pet Supply Guy, third parties or the public at large.
