The Inquisitive Canine Privacy Policy

At The Inquisitive Canine, your privacy is very important to us. We do not sell or otherwise share customer information, nor personally identifying information, with other people or companies unless to provide services to you at your request, or as required by law.

Information We Collect and How It’s Used

We collect aggregate information on what pages consumers access or visit — information volunteered by the consumer, such as survey information and/or site registrations and payment information (e.g., credit card number and billing address). We use this information to do internal research on our users’ demographics, interests and behavior to better understand, protect and serve our users. This information is compiled and analyzed on an aggregated basis.

If you supply us with your personal contact information, we use this information to complete, support and track your purchases, to facilitate and improve your use of the site, to recommend complementary training products or services, to communicate with you for internal purposes and to comply with any requirements of law. This information may be disclosed to our staff and to third parties involved in the completion of your transaction, the delivery of your order or the analysis and support of your use of the site. We do not sell and will not divulge your personal contact information to third parties other than as specified in this Privacy Policy without your permission, unless we are legally entitled or obliged to do so (for example, if required to do so by court order or for the purposes of prevention of fraud or other crimes).

Cookies

We use data collection devices such as “cookies” on certain pages of the site to record session information like items that consumers add to their shopping cart, or for trend analysis, pattern detection, site administration and to promote trust and safety. Cookies are small files placed on your hard drive that assist us in providing our services. You are always free to decline our cookies if your browser permits.

We may automatically receive and record information on our server logs from your browser, which may include your IP address, The Inquisitive Canine cookie information, session time, click path analysis and the pages you request. The Inquisitive Canine will only use this data in an aggregate form, which does not identify you personally.

Communications and Service-Related Announcements

We periodically send mailings and emails to inform our clients about news, events, tips, resources and new services. Any client who does not wish to receive such material may be removed from this list by simply informing us via email or phone call, or by following the instructions at the bottom of each e-mail message on how to unsubscribe.

Our Commitment to Data Security

The security of your personal information is important to us. The Inquisitive Canine follows generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us against loss and unauthorized access. This protection applies in relation to information stored in both electronic and hard copy form. The Inquisitive Canine uses industry-standard security techniques on our websites to help protect against the loss, misuse or modification of information that you have provided.

When you access your personal information or transmit personally identifiable data to us, that information is stored on servers that we have used commercially reasonable efforts to protect from unauthorized access or intrusion. While we implement the above security measures, you should be aware that no method of transmission over the Internet or method of electronic storage is 100 percent secure.
