Privacy policy ::

DogsBite.org is committed to protecting your privacy. Our Privacy Policy applies to data collection and usage on the DogsBite.org website.

Collection of personal information

If you subscribe to the DogsBite.org email list, submit an online donation or participate in a different service on the DogsBite.org website that requires personal information, we may request your name, mailing address, telephone number, email address, birth year, and professional area of practice at a future time to assist us in better understanding our audience demographics.

Collection of aggregate information

DogsBite.org keeps track of the web pages our customers visit within the site in order to determine which web pages are the most popular. This aggregate (non-personal) information may include: your IP address, browser type, domain names, access times and referring website addresses. This information is used by DogsBite.org for the operation of its website and to provide general statistics regarding the use of the DogsBite.org website.

How information may be used

DogsBite.org does not share personal information gathered from the DogsBite.org email list or from online donations with third parties except as may be necessary to process these services. DogsBite.org does not store or have access to credit card information provided to PayPal before, during or after the online donation process.

DogsBite.org will share aggregate data with third parties who help manage our website and advertising partners.

DogsBite.org may access and/or disclose your personal information if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on DogsBite.org or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of DogsBite.org; or (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of DogsBite.org services or members of the public.

Use of cookies

A cookie is a piece of data that is often placed on your hard drive when you visit a website that requires a user login session. This information is accessed when you return to a website that requires login upon revisiting. Currently, DogsBite.org has no login or personalization feature and does not store a cookie on your hard drive. This, however, does not apply to third party services hosted on the DogsBite.org website, such as the user forum.

Third party ad networks

DogsBite.org allows third-party ad networks to display advertisements on our web pages. Some of these ad networks may place a persistent cookie on your computer. Doing this allows the ad network to recognize your computer each time they send you an online advertisement. In this way, ad networks may compile information about where you saw their advertisements and if an ad was clicked on. This information allows an ad network to deliver advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you.

DogsBite.org does not have access to or control of the cookies that may be placed by the third-party ad servers or ad networks. Ad networks that use persistent cookies may offer you a way to opt out of ad targeting.

Changes to this policy

DogsBite.org will occasionally update this Privacy Policy to reflect company and customer feedback. When DogsBite.org posts changes to this policy, you will see the word "updated" next to the Privacy Policy link on the bottom of each website page. DogsBite.org encourages you to periodically review this policy to be informed of how it is protecting your information.
