COLLECTION, USE AND DISCLOSURE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
We may collect personal information when you shop with us; enter a contest; participate in a survey; purchase and/or send an e-gift certificate; create or send a wish list or gift reminder; provide us with comments or suggestions; call our Customer Service or similar contact centers; or subscribe to our newsletters and other programs. We may use your personal information to better assist you when you visit or call us again and to send you special offers for products and services that may be of interest to you. We do this by print advertising, including regular mail, by e-mail, by telephone, and with general marketing communications for product or service-specific information.
You may also "opt-out" of future Pet Revolution marketing communications by calling us or sending us a email.
When you make online purchases, we will collect your name, physical address, phone number, e-mail address and billing/shipping information, as well as credit card information. This information enables us to deliver products that you have ordered; fulfill your requests; contact you or the recipient(s) of your purchase in the event of order or delivery difficulties; verify or respond to your inquiries; and deliver services and information about our products or Site to you. If you make a purchase through our Site, the personal information you provide (for example, name, physical address, and e-mail address) will be added to our customer database. Our customer database may be used to send future Pet Revolution marketing communications to you unless you specifically opt-out. Note: Online purchases require use of an e-mail address to process the order.
When you submit information about other people when you purchase and send an e-gift certificate, or when you create or send a gift reminder, we consider the information you provide and the content of any personalized message to be private and between you and the recipient. Although Pet Revolution does not generally use or disclose any information you provide about someone else for any purpose other than to ship the order and confirm delivery, we reserve the right to maintain that information to send future Pet Revolution marketing communications. We may also use that information to identify or resolve technical problems or customer service issues as necessary, or may need to share that information as required by law or to comply with a court order or other legal process (see more about legal reasons below); to respond to claims that your personalized messages violate the rights of third parties; or to protect the rights or property of Pet Revolution and its affiliates.
We may share your personal information with carefully selected third-party service providers in order to provide services to you, such as to fulfill orders (U.S. Postal Service, Canada Post, or other delivery companies we or you select); process payments; provide customer service; send Pet Revolution marketing communications; monitor Site activity; conduct surveys; maintain our customer database; send regular mail and e-mail; and administer drawings, contests, and rebates. We will share your personal information with our carefully selected third-party services providers on a confidential basis. These service providers are prohibited from using your personal information for any purpose other than providing Pet Revolution services.
We may partner with carefully selected third-party financial service/product providers, such as for credit cards, and may use the information collected by these third parties in order to send marketing communications. These third-party providers have their own privacy policies. When you conduct business with third-party providers, we encourage you to read their privacy policies to learn how they collect and use information about you.
We may combine the personal information you provide to us with publicly available information and information we receive from or cross-reference with our marketing partners and others. We use the combined information to enhance and personalize your experience with us; improve the accuracy of our customer database (such as the U.S. Post Office to verify accuracy of addresses); increase our understanding of our customers; identify potential customers; and send Pet Revolution marketing communications.
We may be required to disclose your personal information for legal reasons, such as in response to a valid court order, subpoena, government investigation, or as otherwise required by law. We also reserve the right to report to law enforcement agencies any activities that we, in good faith, believe to be unlawful. We may release certain personal information when we believe that such release is reasonably necessary to protect the rights, property, and safety of others and Pet Revolution. We may also release personal information in the event of a corporate sale, merger, reorganization, dissolution or similar event. We will require such parties to treat your personal information in accordance with our Policy and to use and disclose your personal information solely for the purposes for which it was collected.

SECURITY OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
Pet Revolution strives to maintain internal controls and procedures to ensure that the personal information you share with us is handled in a safe, secure and responsible manner. Whether you are shopping online or in our retail stores, we have security measures in place to help protect against loss, unauthorized access, and alteration of the information in our control. We will only disclose such information to employees and authorized service providers who require such information for the purposes described in this Policy.
Pet Revolution's databases are protected by physical, technical, and procedural measures that restrict information access to authorized persons in accordance with this Policy. Although no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed 100% secure, and we cannot ensure against any loss, misuse, unauthorized disclosure, alteration, or destruction of data, we take reasonable precautions to prevent such unfortunate occurrences. Our information systems are maintained behind a firewall to isolate them from access by other networks connected to the Internet, and access to personally-identifiable information is granted only to associates who need the information to perform a specific job.

SECURE ONLINE SHOPPING
Because your credit card security is a high priority, we have taken numerous steps to ensure your payment information is processed confidentially, accurately, and securely. Our Site uses encryption technology, such as Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), to protect your credit card information during data transport. SSL encrypts ordering information such as your name, physical address, and credit card number.
To provide you with an increased level of security online, when you register for an online account, you may also select a password to access your personal information. Pet Revolution will not ask you for your password in an unsolicited communication.

The safety of children is very important to us. Consequently, Pet Revolution does not knowingly or intentionally collect information from persons under 13 years of age without parental consent. If you are under 13 and wish to purchase items from our Site or wish to provide personal information, ask a parent or guardian for assistance. Pet Revolution cannot prohibit minors from visiting our Site and must rely on parents and guardians to decide which materials are appropriate for children under 13.
