This Privacy Policy explains how (“Website” or “we”) collects, uses and discloses your Personal Information when you visit or purchase the Website.

The following Pet Shops Market privacy policy (“Privacy Policy”) is designed to inform you, as a user of the Website, about the types of information that the Pet Shops Market may or may receive from you in connection with your use of the Website. In addition, Pet Shops Market aims to explain the conditions under which it uses and discloses this information and your rights regarding this information. Changes to this Privacy Policy are discussed at the end of this document. However, the updated version of this Privacy Policy will be valid every time you use the Website. Accordingly, every time you use the Website, you should check the date of this Privacy Policy (can be seen at the beginning of this document) and review any changes that have occurred since your last use of the Website.



Users of the Website Generally

“Non-Personally Identifying Information” is information that cannot be directly associated with a particular person without the help of additional information. In contrast, “Personally Identifiable Information” is information that can be directly associated with a particular person, such as a name or e-mail address, without more. Like most website operators, Pet Shops Market collects Non-Personally Identifiable Information from Website users of the type that Web browsers may provide based on their settings. This information includes the user’s Internet Protocol (IP) address, the operating system, the browser type, and the locations of the websites the user views immediately before arriving, while browsing and immediately after leaving the Website. Although such information is not Personally Identifiable Information, it may be possible for a user to determine the Internet service provider and the geographical location of the visitor’s connection point and other statistical usage data from the IP address of the Pet Shops Market. Pet Shops Market analyzes Non-Personally Identifiable Information collected from Website users to help them better understand how the Website is used. By identifying usage patterns and trends, Pet Shops Market can better design the Website to improve users’ experience in terms of both content and ease of use. Pet Shops Market may from time to time publish Non-Personally Identifiable Information collected from Website users, for example by publishing a report on trends in the use of the Website.

Web Cookies

A “Web Cookie” is a set of information where a website assigns you a unique ID stored on the user’s computer and provides the website each time the user’s browser sends a query to the website. We use cookies on the Website to keep track of the services you use, to record registration information about your login name and password, to record your user preferences, to keep you logged in on the Website, and to facilitate purchasing procedures. Pet Shops Market also uses Web Cookies to track the pages users visit during each Website session, both to help Pet Shops Market users improve their experience and to help them understand how the Pet Shops Market Website is used. As with other Non-Personally Identifiable Information collected from Website users, Pet Shops Market collectively analyzes and discloses information collected using Web Cookies to help its partners and others better understand how the Website is used. UNDERSTANDING THAT CERTAIN FEATURES OF THE WEBSITE WILL NOT WORK PROPERLY BEFORE ACCESSING THE BROWSERS, THE USERS OF THE WEBSITE WILL REJECT USERS OF THE WEBSITE COOKIES.

To change your choice regarding cookies please refer to NAI or DAA.


We may use third-party vendors, including Google, who use first-party cookies (such as the Google Analytics cookie) and third-party cookies (such as the DoubleClick cookie) together to inform, optimize and serve ads based on your past activity on the Website, including Google Analytics for Display Advertising. The information collected may be used to, among other things, analyze and track data, determine the popularity of certain content and better understand online activity. If you do not want any information to be collected and used by Google Analytics, you can install an opt-out in your web browser ( and/or opt out from Google Analytics for Display Advertising or the Google Display Network by using Google’s Ads Settings (

Aggregated and Non-Personally-Identifying Information

We may share aggregated and Non-Personally Identifying Information we collect under any of the above circumstances. We may also share it with third parties and our affiliate companies to develop and deliver targeted advertising on the Website and on websites of third parties. We may combine Non-Personally Identifying Information we collect with additional Non-Personally Identifying Information collected from other sources. We also may share aggregated information with third parties, including advisors, advertisers and investors, for the purpose of conducting general business analysis. For example, we may tell our advertisers the number of visitors to the Website and the most popular features or services accessed. We partner with Rakuten Advertising, who may collect personal information when you interact with our site. The collection and use of this information is subject to the privacy policy located here: This information does not contain any Personally-Identifying Information and may be used to develop website content and services that we hope you and other users will find of interest and to target content and advertising.


We may use hyperlinks on the Website which will redirect you to a social network if you click on the respective link. However, when you click on a social plug-in, such as Facebook’s “Like” button, Twitter’s “tweet” button or the Google+, that particular social network’s plugin will be activated and your browser will directly connect to that provider’s servers. If you do not use these buttons, none of your data will be sent to the respective social network’s plugin provider. So for example, when you click on the Facebook’s “Like” button on the Website, Facebook will receive your IP address, the browser version and screen resolution, and the operating system of the device you have used to access the Website. Settings regarding privacy protection can be found on the websites of these social networks and are not within our control.

Website Registration

As defined above, Personally-Identifying Information is information that can be directly associated with a specific person. Company may collect a range of Personally-Identifying Information from and about Website users. Much of the Personally-Identifying Information collected by Company about users is information provided by users themselves when (1) registering for our service, (2) logging in with social network credentials, (3) participating in polls, contests, surveys or other features of our service, or responding to offers or advertisements, (4) communicating with us, (5) creating a public profile or (6) signing up to receive newsletters. That information may include each user’s name, address, email address and telephone number, and, if you transact business with us, financial information such as your payment method (valid credit card number, type, expiration date or other financial information). We also may request information about your interests and activities, your gender, age, date of birth, username, hometown and other demographic or relevant information as determined by Company from time to time. Users of the Website are under no obligation to provide Company with Personally-Identifying Information of any kind, with the caveat that a user’s refusal to do so may prevent the user from using certain Website features.


Online Postings

Certain Personally-Identifying Information collected from users may be disclosed as a matter of course as a result of your use of the Website. We may provide areas on the Website where you can post reviews and other information relating to your activities on the Website. Such postings are governed by our Terms of Use. In addition, such postings may appear on other websites or when searches are executed on the subject of your posting. Also, whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information on publicly-viewable web pages, that information will be publicly available and can be collected and used by others. For example, if you post your email address, you may receive unsolicited messages. We cannot control who reads your posting or what other users may do with the information you voluntarily post, so we encourage you to exercise discretion and caution with respect to your personal information. USERS ASSUME ALL RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANY LOSS OF PRIVACY OR OTHER HARM RESULTING FROM THEIR VOLUNTARY DISCLOSURE OF PERSONALLY IDENTIFYING INFORMATION.

Company Communications

We may occasionally use your name and email address to send you notifications regarding new services offered by the Website that we think you may find valuable. We may also send you service-related announcements from time to time through the general operation of the service. Generally, you may opt out of such emails at the time of registration or through your account settings, though we reserve the right to send you notices about your account, such as service announcements and administrative messages, even if you opt out of all voluntary email notifications.


Company contractually prohibits its contractors, affiliates, vendors and suppliers from disclosing Personally-Identifying Information received from Company, other than in accordance with this Privacy Policy. However, third parties are under no obligation to comply with this Privacy Policy with respect to Personally-Identifying Information that users provide directly to those third parties, or that those third parties collect for themselves. These third parties include advertisers, providers of games, utilities, widgets and a variety of other third-party applications accessible through the Website. Company neither owns nor controls the third-party websites and applications accessible through the Website. Thus, this Privacy Policy does not apply to information provided to or gathered by the third parties that operate them. Before visiting a third party, or using a third-party application, whether by means of a link on the Website, directly through the Website or otherwise, and before providing any Personally-Identifying Information to any such third party, users should inform themselves of the privacy policies and practices (if any) of the third party responsible for that website or application, and should take those steps necessary to, in those users’ discretion, protect their privacy.


We take the security of your Personally-Identifying Information seriously and use reasonable electronic, personnel and physical measures to protect it from loss, theft, alteration or misuse. However, please be advised that even the best security measures cannot fully eliminate all risks. We cannot guarantee that only authorized persons will view your information. We are not responsible for third-party circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures.

We are dedicated to protect all information on the Website as is necessary. However, you are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your Personally-Identifying Information by keeping your password confidential. You should change your password immediately if you believe someone has gained unauthorized access to it or your account. If you lose control of your account, you should notify us immediately.
