Information We Collect From You

In order to operate the Site and to provide you with information about products or services that may be of interest to you, we may collect "personal information" (i.e. information that could be used to contact you directly (without using the Site) such as full name, postal address, phone number or email address), or "demographic information" (i.e. information that you submit, or that we collect, that is neither personal information nor financial information; this may include, but is not limited to, zip code, postal code, hometown, gender, username, age/birth date, purchase history information, browsing history information, searching history information, registration history information, and the content of communications between you and other members over the Site), subject to the rest of this paragraph. Demographic information is divided into two categories: 1) "non-public information", which consists of one-on-one communications between you and other users of the Site; and 2) "public information", which consists of all other demographic information. We ask that you do not enter personal information or financial information into your "Profile" or your postings to other Site end users, because if you do then it may be posted publicly on the Site, and the information will then be treated as "demographic information" that is "public information".

We also use personal information to send you newsletters, information, offers and other promotional materials for Petster's or third parties' goods or services. We attempt to send you offers that are of value to you, such as discounts, exclusive offers or special event information. Such communications will provide you with options to decline to receive communications from Petster (other than those contained in Operational Communications). Some of these options may only be for a certain category of communications; others may be more general.

To operate the Site, including processing your transactions and supporting your activities on the Site, we may share your personal information with our agents, representatives, contractors and service providers so they can provide us with support services such as authorization of credit petd transactions, email origination, receipt or support services, customer relationship management services, order fulfillment and sweepstakes and promotional fulfillment. We require these entities not to use your information for any other purpose.

Special Cases In Which We Share Personal Information

Your personal information may be passed on to a third party in the event of a transfer of ownership or assets, or a bankruptcy.

How We Use Public Information and Other Demographic Information

We may review all demographic information. We may use public information to enable other users to find your profile. We may use demographic information to tailor the Site and communications to your interests. We may also share demographic information with advertisers on an anonymous and aggregated basis (i.e., without telling the advertisers your identity). One of the reasons we may do this is to increase the likelihood that our advertisers' goods and services will appeal to Site users, so that we may target specific ads at specific demographic groups. Our sharing of demographic information with advertisers is anonymous, subject to the rest of this Privacy Policy. When you respond to an advertisement, however, we ask you to remember that if that ad that is targeted to a demographic group and you decide to give the advertiser your personal information, then the advertiser may be able to identify you as being a member of that demographic group. Please be aware that we may disclose your demographic information on a non-anonymous basis as described above in the paragraph titled "Special Cases in which we Share Personal Information." Also, to read further details about how we may use your public information, see our Terms of Service and Use.
