The information we collect
When you register to become a member of ThePetCommunity.com, we collect your email address and optionally your name, birthday, gender and country. When you register your pet we collect the information you want to share: nickname, name, gender, breed and age etc. Your name and email will never be shared, rented, bartered or sold with other users or third-party companies. All information entered about your pet(s) will only be used by ThePetCommunity.com to display on the site and will never be shared, rented, bartered, sold or exchanged any other purposeful manner. The website, however, is accessible by anyone with an internet connection and a web browser, which means that any words and photos you post can be copied by any other internet user. That is the nature of the internet and though we discourage anyone from abusing that option, it is something that must be noted
In order to provide the best possible service and detect and correct site errors, we collect aggregate information about use of the site (such as which page are most often viewed) and we collect information about your computer, such as such as browser type, browser language, and IP address. This information as well is never shared with anyone. Your personal information is contained behind secured networks and is only accessible by a limited number of persons who have special access rights to such systems, and are required to keep the information confidential. We implement a variety of security measures when a user enters, submits, or accesses their information to maintain the safety of your personal information.
How we use your information
Your email will never be shared with anyone in anyway. If you chose to enter your name, gender, age or country that information will be displayed on the site. We use your submitted email to notify you events, but no member sees that email.
The biographical information you enter about your pet(s) is instantly available to all other users of the site. ThePetCommunity does not claim rights for the pictures, videos uploaded or the text information you add to the site. Please note, however, that ThePetCommunity.com is a public site and thus all photos and information you provide are available to anyone with internet access. Due to the nature of the internet, it is impossible for ThePetCommunity.com to be a protectorate of your pets' information, photos and videos, so you should never post a photo, video or information that you do not now or ever want someone else to have access to.
You understand and agree that ThePetCommunity.com may access, preserve, and disclose your personal information and the contents of your account if required to do so by law or in a good faith belief that such access preservation or disclosure is reasonably necessary to comply with legal process, such as a search warrant, subpoena, statute, or court order, or to protect the rights and property of ThePetCommunity.com, its affiliates or the public.
