(Bella Vista Animal Shelter) (“us”, “we”,   “our”) provides this Privacy Policy to inform you of our policies and procedures regarding the collection, use and disclosure of personal   information we receive from users of (https://bellavista-animalshelter.org) (“site”). This   Privacy Policy applies only to information that you provide to us through   this site. This Privacy Policy may be updated from time to time. We will notify you of any material changes by posting the new Privacy Policy on the   site. You are advised to consult this policy regularly for any changes.

As used in this policy, the   terms “using” and “processing” information include using cookies on a computer, subjecting the information to statistical or other analysis and   using or handling information in any way, including, but not limited to,   collecting, storing, evaluating, modifying, deleting, using, combining, disclosing and transferring information within our company within the United   States or internationally.

We are committed to protecting   your privacy. Authorized employees within the company on a need to know basis   only use any information collected from individual customers. We constantly   review our systems and data to ensure the best possible service to our   customers. We will investigate any such actions with a view to prosecuting   and/or taking civil proceedings to recover damages against those responsible.

INFORMATION COLLECTION AND   USE 

Our primary goals in collecting   information are to provide and improve our site, services, features and content, to administer your use of the site and to enable users to enjoy and   easily navigate the site (collectively, the “Service”).

PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE   INFORMATION 

When you register with us   through the site, when you join our mailing list, or when you make a purchase via the site, we will ask you for personally identifiable information. This   refers to information about you that can be used to contact or identify you   (“Personal Information”). Personal Information includes, but is not limited   to, your name, phone number, email address, and postal address. If you choose   to make a purchase via the site, our third party payment processor service   providers may also collect billing information such as your credit card   number or billing address. We use the Personal Information you provide mainly   to provide the Service, process your transactions and administer your inquiries. In order to access additional   functionality of the site, you may be required to create an account for your use of the Service (“Account”). You may create an Account directly via the   site.

When you create an Account, you   will become a “Member” of the Service.  We also collect the other   information that you provide as part of account registration and your use of   the Service (e.g., without limitation, zip code (on its own) and individual   preferences) (“Non-Identifying Information”).

We use your Personal Information   (in some cases, in conjunction with your Non-Identifying Information) mainly to   provide the Service, complete your transactions, and administer your   inquiries.

Certain Non-Identifying   Information would be considered a part of your Personal Information if it   were combined with other identifiers (for example, combining your zip code   with your street address) in a way that enables you to be identified. But the   same pieces of information are considered Non-Identifying Information when   they are taken alone or combined only with other non-identifying information.   We may combine your

 

Personal Information with Non-Identifying   Information and aggregate it with information collected from other (Bella Vista Animal Shelter) Users (defined below) to attempt to provide you with a better experience, to improve the quality and value of the Service and to analyze   and understand how our site and Service are used. We may also use the   combined information without aggregating it to serve you specifically, for   instance, to deliver a product to you according to your preferences or   restrictions.

We also use your Personal   Information to contact you with marketing and promotional materials and other  information that may be of interest to you. If you decide at any time that   you no longer wish to receive such communications from us, please follow the   unsubscribe instructions provided in any of the communications or contact us.   (See “Changing or Deleting Your Information,” below.)

LOG DATA 

When you visit the site, whether   as a (Bella Vista Animal Shelter) Member or a non-registered user just browsing (any of   these, a “(Bella Vista Animal Shelter) User”), our servers automatically record information   that your browser sends whenever you visit a website (“Log Data”). This Log   Data may include information such as your computer’s Internet Protocol (“IP”)   address, browser type or the webpage you were visiting before you came to our   site, pages of our site that you visit, the time spent on those pages,   information you search for on our site, access

 

times and dates, and other   statistics. We use this information to monitor and analyze use of the site   and the Service and for the site’s technical administration, to increase our   site’s functionality and user-friendliness, and to better tailor it to our   visitors’ needs. We also use this information to verify that visitors to the   site meet the criteria required to process their requests.

SECURITY POLICY 

Your payment and personal   information are always safe. Our Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software is the industry   standard and among the best software available today for secure commerce   transactions. It encrypts all of your personal information,   including credit card number, name, and address, so that it cannot be read over   the internet.

COOKIES AND PIXEL TAGS 

Like many websites, we use   “cookies” to collect information. A cookie is a small data file that we   transfer to your computer’s hard disk for record-keeping purposes. We use   cookies for two purposes. First, we use persistent cookies to save your login   information for future logins to the site. Second, we use session ID cookies   to enable certain features of the site, to better understand how you interact   with the site and to monitor aggregate usage by (Bella Vista Animal Shelter) Users and web   traffic routing on the site. Unlike persistent cookies, session cookies are   deleted from your computer when you log off from the site and Service and   then close your browser. You can instruct your browser, by changing its   options, to stop accepting cookies or to prompt you before accepting a cookie   from the websites you visit. If you do not accept cookies, however, you may   not be able to use all portions of the site or all functionality of the   Service.

Any aggregated information shared in these contexts will not contain your Personal Information.

Pixel Tags allow us to count users who   have visited certain pages of the site, to deliver branded services and to   help determine the effectiveness of promotional or advertising campaigns. PHISHING Identity theft and the practice   currently known as “phishing” are of great concern to (Bella Vista Animal Shelter). Safeguarding   information to help protect you from identity theft is a top priority. We do   not and will not, at any time, request your credit card information, your   login information, or national identification numbers in a non- secure or   unsolicited e-mail or telephone communication.

Your consent to this Privacy Policy followed by your submission of   such information represents your agreement to that transfer. LINKS TO OTHER SITES Our site contains links to other   websites.

The fact that we link to a   website or present a banner ad or other type of advertisement is not an   endorsement, authorization or representation of our affiliation with that   third party, nor is it an endorsement of their privacy or information   security policies or practices. We do not exercise control over third party   websites. These other websites may place their own cookies or other files on   your computer, collect data or solicit personal information from you.
