What Are Your Choices About How We Use and Share Your Information?

We strive to provide you with choices regarding the information you provide to us. We have created mechanisms to give you the following controls over your information: 

Tracking Technologies. You can set your browser to refuse all or some browser cookies, or to alert you when cookies are being sent. For further information about how to do so, please refer to your browser “help” tool, or see www.allaboutcookies.org. Note that if you disable or refuse cookies, please note that some parts of our website may be inaccessible or not function properly. You may also be able to opt out of mobile advertising identifiers and other non-cookie technologies.

If you do not wish to have your contact information used by Wagtopia to promote our own or third parties' products or services, you can opt-out by sending us an email stating your request to support@Wagtopia.com. If we have sent you a promotional email, the email will have an “unsubscribe” feature that will allow you to opt-out of receiving future email distributions. 

How Can You Access and Correct Your Information?

You can always elect not to disclose information to us. However, please keep in mind that we may need some information to allow you to register with us, create an Account and/or to take advantage of some or all of our features, and if you choose not to provide that information, your ability to use our Services may be limited. 

You may send us an e-mail at support@Wagtopia.com to request access to, correct or delete any personal information that you have provided to us. You have the right to request what Personal Information we hold about you subject to our right to identity verification. If you request a copy of your data, we may charge you a fee, except where this is not permissible under applicable law. 

Whenever you have given us your consent to use your Personal Information, you have the right to change your mind at any time and withdraw that consent. 

In some jurisdictions, you have the right to correct or amend your Personal Information if it is inaccurate or needs to be updated. You may also have the right to request the deletion of your Personal Information, however this may not be always possible due to legal requirements and other obligations to keep such data. If we are asked to delete your data, we may keep some minimal information about you to be able to demonstrate that we have fulfilled our obligations.  In addition, we cannot delete all of your Personal Information except by also deleting your user Account. We may not accommodate a request to change information if we believe the change would violate any law or legal requirement or cause the information to be incorrect. 

If you delete your User Contributions from the Services, copies of your User Contributions may remain viewable in cached and archived pages, or might have been copied or stored by other Services users. Proper access and use of information provided on the Services, including User Contributions, is governed by our Terms of Use. 


How Is Your Information Kept Secure?

We work hard to protect your information and have implemented appropriate commercially reasonable physical, electronic and other security measures designed to secure your personal information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration and disclosure. All information you provide to us is stored on our secure servers behind firewalls and will be backed up on at least a weekly basis. Any payment transactions will be encrypted using SSL technology.

The safety and security of your information also depends on you. We urge you to be careful about giving out information in public areas of the Services like the message boards or forums. The information you share in public areas may be viewed by any user of the Services.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we do our best to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of your personal information transmitted to our Services. Any transmission of Personal Information is at your own risk. We are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained on the Services.  Therefore, you should take special care in deciding what information you provide to us.  




California privacy rights AND NOTICES


California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018, Cal. Civil Code § 1798.100 et seq., (“CCPA”)

California law permits users who are California residents to request and obtain from us once a year, free of charge, a list of the third parties to whom we have disclosed their personal information (if any) for their direct marketing purposes in the prior calendar year, as well as the type of personal information disclosed to those parties. 


Wagtopia shall comply with the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018, Cal. Civil Code § 1798.100 et seq., (“CCPA”), which may be amended from time to time.  Per the terms of the CCPA, Wagtopia is a Service Provider and not a Third Party as described in the CCPA. Therefore, Wagtopia shall not:
  • Sell the Personal Information.
  • Retain, use, or disclose the Personal Information for any purpose other than providing the Services or for a Business Purpose. Specifically, Wagtopia shall not retain, use, or disclose the Personal Information for a Commercial Purpose.
  • Retain, use, or disclose the Personal Information outside of the direct business relationship between Wagtopia and its users.


Notwithstanding anything in the Terms of Service or any related order form or other document, the parties acknowledge and agree that a user’s provision of Personal Information is not part of and explicitly excluded from the exchange of consideration, or any other thing of value, between the parties.


You have the right to request that we delete any Personal Information that we have collected from you. However, we are not required to comply with a request to delete, if it is necessary for us to retain the personal information in order to:
  • Complete the transaction for which we collected the personal information, provide a product that you requested, take actions reasonably anticipated within the context of our ongoing business relationship with you, or otherwise perform our contract with you.
  • Detect security incidents, protect against malicious, deceptive, fraudulent, or illegal activity, or prosecute those responsible for such activities.
  • Debug products to identify and repair errors that impair existing intended functionality.
  • Exercise free speech, ensure the right of another consumer to exercise their free speech rights, or exercise another right provided for by law.
  • Comply with the California Electronic Communications Privacy Act (Cal. Penal Code § 1546 et. seq.).
  • Engage in public or peer-reviewed scientific, historical, or statistical research in the public interest that adheres to all other applicable ethics and privacy laws, when the information’s deletion may likely render impossible or seriously impair the research’s achievement, if you previously provided informed consent.
  • Enable solely internal uses that are reasonably aligned with consumer expectations based on your relationship with us.
  • Comply with legal obligations.
  • Make other internal and lawful uses of that information that are compatible with the context in which you provided it.


If you are a California resident and would like to request information or exercise your rights under the CCPA, please submit your request in an email to support@Wagtopia.com. 



RETENTION


We will retain your Personal Information for the period of time that is necessary to fulfil the original purposes for which it has been collected. Please keep in mind that, in certain cases, a longer retention period may be required or permitted by law or to allow us to pursue our business interests, conduct audits, comply with our legal obligations, enforce our agreements or resolve any dispute. 


The criteria used to determine our retention periods include:
  • Time needed to provide you with our Services or to operate our business.
  • Whether your Account with us is active.  You may contact us to make your Account inactive at any time. 
  • Legal, contractual, or similar obligations to retain your data, such as mandatory data retention laws in the applicable jurisdiction, government orders to preserve data relevant to an investigation, or data that must be retained for the purposes of contract or litigation.
