Indestructible Dog LLC (“Indestructible Dog,” “we,” “us”, “our”) takes seriously its responsibilities regarding the privacy of each user (“user,” “you” or “your”) of the www.IndestructibleDog.com site (the “Site”). We want you to understand our practices with regard to collecting and using your information both online and offline and the steps we take to safeguard it.
We do not collect any personally identifiable information unless you voluntarily provide it to us. While you may use some of the functionality of the Site without registration, some of the activities and services might require you to subscribe. If you do not subscribe on or through the Site, the only information we collect will be “non-personal information” (i.e., information that is not traceable back to you and cannot be used to identify you; for example, non-personal information includes information such as the web pages that you have viewed) through the use of “cookies”. In general, cookies are small data files that are stored on the hard drive of a computer and that are accessible only by the party or site that placed the cookie on the hard drive. If you choose to subscribe or create an account through the Site, we may require you to submit personally identifiable information. You are responsible for ensuring the accuracy of the personally identifiable information you submit to Indestructible Dog. Inaccurate information (such as an out-of-date email address) will affect the information you receive when using the Site and our ability to contact you.
2. Your Consent
If you do not agree with these terms, do not provide any personally identifiable information to us. If you refuse or withdraw your consent, or if you choose not to provide us with any required personally identifiable information, we may not be able to provide you with certain products or services that can be offered on the Site.
