Please note that the practices of Wiki-Pet.com, its affiliates, with respect to data collected and used by Wiki-Pet.com in connection with this website and all other websites of Wiki-Pet.com with authorized links to this policy (collectively, the "Site") and Wiki-Pet.com services available or enabled via the Site ("Services"), are governed by this online privacy policy ("Privacy Policy") as amended from time to time, and not the privacy policy in effect at the time the data was collected. If you have objections to the Privacy Policy, you should immediately discontinue use of the and Services enabled by the Site and follow the procedure described in the section entitled "Updating your personal information and privacy preferences. This Privacy Policy does not govern privacy practices associated with offline activities, websites other than the Site, or products and services not available or enabled via the Site, except as expressly set forth in the section entitled "Data not collected on this Site." Changes in Privacy Policy


All personal information ("personal information" is defined as any information that identifies or can be used to identify the person to whom such information pertains) that we collect and maintain will be subject to this Privacy Policy, as amended from time to time. Wiki-Pet.com may change the Privacy Policy from time to time at its sole discretion and will provide notice of all changes in the Privacy Policy through indications on this Privacy Policy and in the footer of the web pages with authorized links to this Privacy Policy. You will be deemed to have been made aware of, and will be subject to, the changes to the Privacy Policy after such notice has been posted with the following exception: if at the time you provide personal information to Wiki-Pet.com you limit how such information will be used to communicate with you, either by Wiki-Pet.com or by third parties, Wiki-Pet.com will not change your preference in this regard without your express consent. However, if Wiki-Pet.com sells assets (or the assets of a division or subsidiary) to another entity, or Wiki-Pet.com (or a division or subsidiary) is acquired by or merged with another entity, you agree that Wiki-Pet.com may provide to such entity customer information that is related to that part of our business that was sold to or merged with the other entity without obtaining your further consent. Wiki-Pet.com will provide notice of such asset sales, acquisitions, or mergers on this Site.


Entities collecting personal information

Personal information on this Site is collected on behalf of Wiki-Pet.com by Wiki-Pet.com, who is responsible for this Site. Wiki-Pet.com’s address is 203 Augusta Plantation Dr, Myrtle Beach, South Carolina 29579.

The Site contains links to other sites at which personal information is collected. In such instances, unless expressly provided to the contrary, the collection and use of your personal information will be governed by the privacy policy applicable to that site. That privacy policy should identify the entity that is collecting your personal information.


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 building a profile or submitting a product review comment, Wiki-Pet.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, Wiki-Pet.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.


When you use the Site, Wiki-Pet.com may also collect certain information about your computer to facilitate, evaluate and verify your use of the services. For example, we may log environmental variables, such as browser type, operating system, CPU speed, referring or exit webpages, click patterns, Session ID (a unique identifier assigned to the browser in connection to the Site), and the Internet Protocol (IP) address of your computer. Wiki-Pet.com also uses such information to measure traffic patterns on the Site and usage of the Products and Services. We do not match such information with personal information held about you by Wiki-Pet.com unless we have your consent, except as otherwise described in this Privacy Policy.


By using this Site’s services, you agree and acknowledge that personal information collected through the Site or in connection with the Products and Services may be transferred across national boundaries and stored and processed in any of the countries around the world in which Wiki-Pet.com maintains offices, including the United States. You also acknowledge that in certain countries or with respect to certain activities, the collection, transfer, storage, and processing of your information may be undertaken by trusted third party vendors or agents of Wiki-Pet.com such as credit card processors, web hosting providers, mail and email service providers, communication services, and web analytic providers, to help facilitate Wiki-Pet.com in providing certain functions. Another instance where this could occur is in conjunction with framed pages in which the URL for the pages is not visible, and the pages are hosted for Wiki-Pet.com by such third party vendors. For example, on the sign up pages for some newsletters, the pages may be hosted by a third party vendor, but appear to be Wiki-Pet.com.com pages and they are therefore governed by this Privacy Policy. Personal information may be shared with these providers to fulfill the service. Such third parties are bound by contract with Wiki-Pet.com not to use your personal information for their own purposes or provide it to any third parties.


Wiki-Pet.com Advertisers

Wiki-Pet.com has established relationships with various providers of services and products who are not part of Wiki-Pet.com and who may not themselves be providing products and services to Wiki-Pet.com or on Wiki-Pet.com’s behalf ("Providers"). Providers do not include third parties contracted by Wiki-Pet.com to perform services on Wiki-Pet.com’s behalf. The services of these Providers may be available to you from the Site, from websites that are linked to the Site, or in connection with the Products and Services. Typically, these Providers offer services that Wiki-Pet.com customers might find useful, such as those that can be used in conjunction with Products and Services. In order to use Providers’ products and services, you may be required to provide personal information to the Providers or agree to allow Wiki-Pet.com to share your personal information with such Providers. Unless expressly provided to the contrary, personal information that you provide while you are visiting a Provider’s website will be subject to the privacy policy posted on that site, and personal information that you provide while on the Site will be subject to this Privacy Policy. In order to reduce errors in our database, authenticate our users, prevent fraud and prevent abuse of our Site and Services, as well as to provide more consistent, relevant experiences to our users, we may on occasion supplement or correct the personal information you submit to us and your Internet Protocol (IP) address with information in our other databases or information from third-party sources. For example, if permitted under applicable law, we may supplement your Registration Information with address information provided by the U.S. Postal Service to qualify your information and prevent errors in our database. As permissible, we may also supplement the information you provide to us with demographic and other information (such as age or interest in photography) stored in third-party databases in order to make it more likely that marketing communications we send will be of interest to you.


How your personal information is used

Wiki-Pet.com collects your information in order to record, support and facilitate your participation in the activities you select and to prevent fraud and unlawful use If you enter a contest, information is collected to qualify the entry and to contact you regarding the contest or prize awards. Your personal information may also be used to track customer preferences to provide a customized Site experience and keep you informed about service upgrades, special offers, and other products and services of Wiki-Pet.com and selected Providers unless you have opted not to receive such communications or such communications are prohibited by law. Wiki-Pet.com does not share personal information it receives from residents of California or from residents of any other place with such Providers for the Providers’ own marketing purposes unless Wiki-Pet.com has received an opt-in from you. Wiki-Pet.com may collect information about the use of the Services and the Site, such as the number of downloads, types of Services used, how many users we receive daily, Site pages visited, and the IP address of your computer. This information is generally collected in aggregate form, without identifying any user individually, although IP address and Session ID in relation to downloads may be tracked as part of Wiki-Pet.com’s customer order review and fraud prevention efforts. Other exceptions to this, where an individual may be identified individually, are noted in this Privacy Policy or in additional privacy terms connected to a specific Product, Service or website.


Wiki-Pet.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

Wiki-Pet.com recognizes and appreciates the importance of responsible use of information collected on the Site. Wiki-Pet.com will respect your legal rights regarding access to, and correction and deletion of, your personal information. Wiki-Pet.com may communicate information to you regarding services, and special offers available from Wiki-Pet.com unless you have opted not to receive such communications or such communications are prohibited by law, although in such cases we may find it necessary to continue to communicate with you regarding your use of the Site. In addition, you may receive communications and special offers from selected Providers (or from Wiki-Pet.com on behalf of such Providers), but only if you previously opted in to receive such communications. Except in the particular circumstances described in this Privacy Policy, Wiki-Pet.com will not provide your name to other companies or organizations without your consent. If you have opted to receive email communications from our selected Providers and later wish to discontinue receipt of these emails, please contact those third parties directly to update your preferences.


There are other instances in which Wiki-Pet.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

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 Wiki-Pet.com personnel and contractors have access to via password. Wiki-Pet.com encrypts your personal information as it is transferred to Wiki-Pet.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 Wiki-Pet.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. Community Pages


Please note that any information you post to a public bulletin board, blog or chat room (such as the Wiki-Pet.com product review) and to the community, personal sharing URLs (such as your_link.yourdomain.com) and user profiles (the "Community Pages") is available to all persons accessing that location, and your e-mail address and other personal information or content you upload may also be posted on these Community Pages. The information you share, including your email address, would then be available to all persons accessing these Community Pages, and such information may be read, collected or used by others for any purpose, including sending you unsolicited messages. Wiki-Pet.com is not responsible for any information you elect to submit in these Community Pages or the use of such information. In addition, you should be aware that some Community Pages offer a service in which subscribers are e-mailed a copy of all messages posted to the Community Pages on a particular topic. Consequently, if you post a message to such Community Pages, your e-mail address will be sent to those subscribers who have indicated an interest in the topic of your message. If you do not wish for your personal information to be posted or distributed in this manner, you should not participate in the Community Pages.


Tracking, use of cookies, web beacons and similar devices

In order to improve our Products and Services and the Site and provide more convenient, relevant experiences to our customers, 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. It functions as your identification card and enables Wiki-Pet.com to record your passwords, purchases, and preferences. It cannot be executed as code or deliver viruses. A web beacon is a small transparent gif image that is embedded in an HTML page or email used to track when the page or email has been viewed.


While Wiki-Pet.com uses cookies and similar devices to track your use of the Site (such as the number of downloads, how many users we receive daily, the Site pages visited), and web servers automatically log the IP/Internet address of your computer, Wiki-Pet.com does not generally use this information to identify you personally. Exceptions to this are noted in this Privacy Policy. If you expressly provide consent for the Site or the Product and Service to "remember" the unique identifier that you select when you register for various activities on the Site or the Products and Services, that unique identifier will be stored on a persistent cookie on your computer and that unique identifier will be linked to your Registration Information. As a result, your navigation path around the Site will be tracked in identifiable form.


Personal Information that users provide about other individuals for referral features on the Site is used by Wiki-Pet.com to send an initial communication to the person whose details you have provided, and is not retained in Wiki-Pet.com’s systems. If you are invited by someone else to participate in shared editing or viewing of documents, photos, websites or other content, you will typically be required to contact the person who invited you to update, correct or delete the personal information they provided about you. In general, even though we may delete an account you hold with us in these types of shared editing or viewing areas, we may continue to retain information regarding your past actions with respect to content reviews or sharing initiated by others.


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.


Most browsers are initially set to accept cookies. You can set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie, giving you the chance to decide whether or not to accept it. (For some web pages that require an authorization, cookies are not optional. Users choosing not to accept cookies or similar devices will probably not be able to access those pages or the related Services.)


Wiki-Pet.com places advertisements on the website. The advertisers do not collect any information other than IP addresses and behaviors associated with those IP addresses on our behalf, and we do not give any personal information to them. If you click on these advertisements these companies may place a persistent cookie on your computer which may allow them to display further advertisements to you. It is our policy to require these companies to provide accessible methods for you to disable these cookies.
