Collection of Personal Information
We receive and store any personally identifiable information you enter on the Web site, whenever you shop with Gimmie A Bark – online, or in our stores, or information you give us in any other way. For example, we may collect the following personally identifiable information: your name, address, telephone number, birth date, and e-mail address. If you use a credit or debit card or pay by check, we will also include your account number. The site you entered may also collect Personal Information from you about a third party (e.g., the site might allow you to send an electronic recommendation to a friend, in which case we will need that person’s name and e-mail address). When you visit this Web site, our web server automatically collects anonymous information for a number of purposes, such as improving our site design, product assortments, customer service, and special promotions.
Personal information provided on the Web Site and online credit card transactions are transmitted through a secure server using Secure Socket Layering (SSL), encryption technology. When the letters “http” in the URL change to “https,” the “s” indicated you are in a secure area employing SSL; also, your browser may give you a pop-up message that you’re about to enter a secure area.
You may purchase online merchandise by calling any of our Wet Nose locations. One of our sales associates will gladly take your order.
We are committed to handling your personal information with high standards of information security. We take appropriate physical, electronic and administrative steps to maintain the security and accuracy of personally identifiable information we collect, including limiting the number of people who have physical access to our database servers, as well as employing electronic security systems and password protections that guard against unauthorized access. Our website uses encryption technology, such as Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), to protect your personal information during data transport. SSL encrypts ordering information such as your name, address and credit card number. Please note that e-mail is not encrypted and is not considered to be a secure means of transmitting credit card information.
