Because we gather certain types of information about our users, we feel you should fully understand the terms and conditions surrounding the capture and use of that information. This privacy statement discloses what information we gather and how we use it.
The Abby Pet Mart Gathers User Information in the Following Processes:
Electronic newsletters and coupon dispatches. We may offer our Site users a free electronic newsletter. Users can subscribe to the newsletters at the time of registration. The Abby Pet Mart gathers the email addresses of users who voluntarily subscribe. Users may remove themselves from this mailing list by following the link provided in every newsletter that points users to the subscription management page.
Message boards/forums. Users of the Site’s Message Boards and Forums must register separately for these services (both are free of charge) in order to post messages, although they needn’t register to visit the Site. During registration the user is required to supply a username, password, and email address. Abby Pet Mart reserves the right to monitor the Site’s Message Boards and Forums and to remove, without notice, any material that is obscene, harassing, infringes any third party’s intellectual property rights or that Abby Pet Mart, in Abby Pet Mart’s sole discretion, deems inappropriate.
“E-mail this to a friend” Service. We may offer our Site users the ability to electronically forward a link, page, or documents to someone else by clicking “e-mail this to a friend”. The user must provide their email address, as well as that of the recipient. This information is used only in the case of transmission errors and, of course, to let the recipient know who sent the email. The information is not used for any other purpose.
Polling. We may offer interactive polls to users so they can easily share their opinions with other users and see what our audience thinks about important issues. Opinions or other responses to polls are aggregated and are not identifiable to any particular user. Abby Pet Mart may use a system to “tag” users after they have voted, so they can vote only once on a particular question. This tag is not correlated with information about individual users.
USE OF INFORMATION
Abby Pet Mart uses any information voluntarily given by our users to enhance their experience of the Site, whether to provide interactive or personalized elements on the Site or to better prepare future content based on the interests of our users.
