Anser Innovation understands that your privacy is important to you. We are committed to protecting the security of your private information as you use this website.
What is public information and how is it collected and used? Public information is information either that is publicly known, or information that cannot identify you as an individual person. If you visit this web site to read information, such as information about one of our products, we may collect certain information about you from your computer’s web browser. Because this information cannot identify you or be tied to you personally in any way, there are no restrictions on the ways that we can use or share such public information. In addition, if you publicly post information about yourself to other users of our website, such as when you participate in a public forum, blog, or chat room, the information you post is public information, and there are no restrictions on the ways that we can use or share it.
What is private information and how is it collected? Private information is information that identifies you as an individual, such as your name, mailing address, e-mail address, telephone number, and fax number, which you give us for limited purposes. We may collect private information from you in a variety of ways when you fill out an online form or survey, or when you conduct an online transaction with us.
How does Anser Innovation use private information? We may keep and use private information we collect from or about you to provide you with access to this website or other products or services, to respond to your requests, to bill you for products you purchased, and to provide ongoing service and support, to contact you with information that might be of interest to you, including information about products and services of ours and of others, or ask for your opinion about our services or the products of others, for record keeping and analytical purposes and to research, develop and improve programs, products, services and content. Private information collected online may be combined with information you provide to us through other sources. We may also remove your private identifiers (your name, e-mail address, address, etc). In this case, you would no longer be identified as a single unique individual. Once we have de-identified information, it is no longer private information and we may treat it like other public information. Finally, we may use your private information to protect our rights or property, or to protect someone’s health, safety or welfare, and to comply with a law or regulation, court order or other legal process.
We may be legally compelled to release your private information in response to a court order, subpoena, search warrant, law or regulation. We may cooperate with law enforcement authorities in investigating and prosecuting web site visitors who violate our rules or engage in behavior which is harmful to other visitors (or illegal). We also may disclose your private information to third parties if we feel that the disclosure is necessary to protect our rights or property, protect someone’s health, safety or welfare, or to comply with a law or regulation, court order or other legal processes.
How is private information used for communications? We may contact you periodically by e-mail, mail or telephone to provide information regarding programs, products, services, and content that may be of interest to you. In addition, some of the features on this website allow you to communicate with us using an online form. If your communication requests a response from us, we may send you a response via e-mail. The e-mail response or confirmation may include your private information. We cannot guarantee that our e-mails to you will be secure from unauthorized interception.
How is private information secured? We have implemented generally accepted standards of technology and operational security in order to protect privately-identifiable information from loss, misuse, alteration, or destruction. Only authorized personnel and third party vendors have access to your private information, and these employees and vendors are required to treat this information as confidential. Despite these precautions, we cannot guarantee that unauthorized persons will not obtain access to your private information.
Are there special rules about participation in Public Discussions on the Site? This site may provide public discussions on various topics. Please note that any information you post in these discussions will become public, so please do not post sensitive information in the public discussions. Whenever you publicly disclose information online, that information could be collected and used by others. We are not responsible for any action or policies of any third parties who collect information that users disclose in any such forums on the website. Anser Innovation does not agree or disagree with anything posted on the discussion board. Also, remember that you must comply with our other published policies regarding postings on our public forums.
How can a user access, change, and/or delete private information? You may access, correct, update, and/or delete any private personally-identifiable information that you submit to the website. You may also unsubscribe from mailing lists or any registrations on the website. To do so, please either follow instructions on the page of the website on which you have provided such information or subscribed or registered or contact us.
What about Children’s Privacy Rights? We will not intentionally collect any private information (such as a child’s name or email address) from children under the age of 13. If you think that we have collected private information from a child under the age of 13, please contact us.
Tailored Advertising As you browse petchatz.com and other websites, online ad networks we work with may place anonymous cookies on your computer, and use similar technologies, in order to understand your interests based on your (anonymous) online activities, and thus to tailor more relevant ads to you. If you do not wish to receive such tailored advertising, you can visit the Network Advertising Institute to opt out of most companies that engage in such advertising. (This will not prevent you from seeing ads; the ads simply will not be delivered through these targeting methods.)
