Collection of personal information
As a visitor to this Site, you can engage in many activities without providing any personal information. In connection with other activities, such as creating an account or submitting a groomer review, pawfinity.com may ask you to provide certain information about yourself by filling out and submitting a form. It is optional for you to engage in these activities. If you elect to engage in these activities, however, pawfinity.com may ask that you provide certain personal information (as well as certain non-personal information that may be tied to personal information), such as your first and last name, mailing address (including ZIP code), country of residence, e-mail address, employer, job title and department, and telephone and facsimile numbers. Depending upon the activity, some of the information that we ask you to provide is identified as mandatory and some as voluntary. If you do not provide the mandatory data with respect to a particular activity, you will not be able to engage in that activity. Similarly, if you wish to delete your information that is mandatory, you will no longer be able to engage in that particular activity.
How your personal information is used
pawfinity.com may use aggregate, non-identifying statistical data for improving the Site and the Services, providing more relevant experiences to our customers and for statistical analysis.
Your choices with respect to personal information
There are other instances in which pawfinity.com may divulge your personal information, such as when required by law, regulation, or litigation. We may also disclose information about you if we determine that such disclosure should be made for reasons of national security, law enforcement, or other issues of public importance.
Protection of your personal information
Pawfinity utilizes (up to) 256bit SSL encryption on all transfers of sensitive persional information. The personal information that you provide in connection with registering yourself as a user of the Site is classified as Registration Information. Registration Information is protected in several ways. Access by you to your Registration Information is available through a password and unique customer ID selected by you. This password is encrypted. We recommend that you do not divulge your password to anyone. In addition, your Registration Information resides on secure servers that only selected pawfinity.com personnel and contractors have access to via password. pawfinity.com encrypts your personal information as it is transferred to pawfinity.com and thereby strives to prevent unauthorized parties from viewing such information.
Personal information that you provide that does not constitute Registration Information also resides on secure servers and is accessible only to selected pawfinity.com personnel and contractors via password. Since this information is not accessible online by you, you will not be asked to select a password in order to view or modify such information.
Please note that any information you post to a public business page or blog, would then be available to all persons accessing these pages, and such information may be read, collected or used by others for any purpose. pawfinity.com is not responsible for any information you elect to submit in these Business Pages or the use of such information. In addition, you should be aware that businesses may elect to share your service review publicly on social networks for promotional purposes. Consequently, information you have posted may be publicly broadcast or used in advertisement by the business. If you do not wish for your personal information to be posted or distributed in this manner, you should not participate in the business Page review.
In order to improve our Products, Services, the Site, and provide more convenient, relevant experiences to our clients and visitors, we and our vendors and agents may use "cookies", "web beacons", and similar devices to track your activities. A cookie is a small amount of data that is transferred to your browser by a web server and can only be read by the server that gave it to you.

We may also ask you to provide information of others such as when reporting suspected piracy. In this instance, we will ask for the person’s or company’s name and contact information so that we may investigate. Personal information supplied in these instances will only be used for the purpose being submitted.
