Personal Financial Information

PetLynx™ does not store your personal financial information. When you make a purchase on the PetLynx™ Utility, PetLynx™ seamlessly forwards you to a well respected and proven provider of financial services such as Moneris or PayPal to complete the transaction so that no financial information need be stored on the PetLynx™ Utility.

Why does PetLynx™ need personal identifying information?

Some personal information is collected to provide customized Service(s) and Content and to operate this Utility. The collection of personally identifying information also allows PetLynx™ to manage its Service(s) or the products and services of others in a more efficient manner.

To protect your privacy, you must maintain the secrecy of the Subscriber ID and Password you use to access PetLynx™ Service(s).

PetLynx™ may provide Subscribers with notifications of new features or Service(s) and other information that may be of interest to Subscribers. PetLynx™ collects Internet protocol (IP) addresses (the location of your computer on the Internet) for system administration and troubleshooting purposes, and to report aggregate information. PetLynx™ also collects and transfers to Service(s) partners, the personal information volunteered by Subscribers requesting quotations or ancillary Service(s) offered through the Utility. Lastly, PetLynx™ uses personal identifying information for verification purposes on the Utility and in the Service(s) it provides Subscribers.

How does PetLynx™ use cookies?

"Cookies" are small pieces of information that are stored by your web browser software on your computer's hard drive or temporarily in your computer's memory. The proper use of cookies is an industry standard, and Subscribers will find them on all major Utilities like PetLynx.

PetLynx™ sometimes uses cookies to store and track Subscriber information on the Utility. PetLynx™ also provides cookies that can give Subscribers a more personalized, relevant, and intelligent service. PetLynx™ also uses cookies to recognize Subscriber access privileges, track usage, provide customized information for goods or services, and to estimate the requirements of Subscribers using the PetLynx™ Utility. Service providers that offer their branded services via the PetLynx™ Utility may also use their own cookies.

Although most web browsers are initially set to accept cookies, you may be able to decline the placement of a cookie on your hard drive. If you choose to have your browser refuse cookies, some areas of the PetLynx™ Utility and Service(s) may not function properly.

PetLynx™ disclosure of Personal Information to third parties

PetLynx™ discloses publicly available or volunteered information of Subscribers in aggregate form only, and not specific individual data, to certain other third parties. For example, PetLynx™ might tell an advertiser how many clients visited the PetLynx™ Utility during a particular period of time without identifying them.

Subscribers are required to disclose certain personal identifying information through registration to enable PetLynx™ to deliver certain Service(s), and/or to request information or price quotations from third parties that offer services through PetLynx. PetLynx™ does not control third parties, and can provide no assurances that such parties will not solicit Subscribers in the future.

PetLynx™ will not sell or rent your personally identifiable information to anyone.

PetLynx™ will only provide personal identifiable information about you to other third parties when:

  • We have your consent to share the information;
  • We need to share your information to provide the product or service you have requested;
  • We need to send the information to companies who work on behalf of PetLynx™ to provide Service(s) to you. (Unless you provide permission, these companies do not have any right to use the personal identifiable information we provide to them beyond what is necessary to assist us providing Service(s) to you.);
  • We must respond to court orders, subpoenas, and legal enforcements; or
  • We find that your actions on our Utility violate the PetLynx™ Terms of Use, or any of our usage guidelines for specific Service(s).

If you do not wish to have your personally identifying or corporate data shared with third parties, you may elect not to use services that require the disclosure of personally identifying or corporate information.

Except as stated above, PetLynx™ does not disclose or transfer individual, personally identifying, or corporate information records to third parties, unless we reasonably believe we are required to do so by applicable law or valid legal process or to protect our property interests. We disclose any such information when we believe in good faith that the law requires it.

PetLynx™ makes every effort to deal only with legitimate third-party providers of services that are required by Subscribers. Nevertheless, PetLynx™ is not and cannot be responsible for the activities or privacy policies of these third parties.

Does the PetLynx™ Privacy Policy extend to external websites and utilities?

Subscribers who click on hyperlinks or banner advertisements should understand that these service providers may collect personal identifiable information about them. These third-party web Utilities are not controlled by PetLynx™ and are therefore not subject to this Privacy Policy. Subscribers should check the privacy policies of these third-party websites and utilities to see how their personal information will be used by each proprietor.

What does PetLynx™ do to keep its information secure?

PetLynx™ has implemented industry-standard security features throughout this Utility to prevent the unauthorized release of or access to personal identifying information. For example, database information is kept separate from live servers and is protected behind a robust security system. Moreover, only authorized personnel have access to any stored, personal identifying information PetLynx™ may collect on its Subscribers.

Please be advised that although PetLynx™ has created a secure and reliable Utility for each Subscriber, it cannot guarantee the confidentiality of communication transmitted to or from the Utility. When disclosing any personal identifying information, all Subscribers should remain mindful of the fact that it is potentially accessible to the public, and consequently, can be collected and used by others without Subscriber consent. Subscribers should consider carefully if they want to submit sensitive information that they would not want disclosed to the public and should recognize that their use of the Internet and the Utility is solely at their own risk. PetLynx™ has no responsibility or liability for the security of personal identifying information transmitted via the Internet. PetLynx™ urges all Subscribers to exercise caution when conveying personal identifying information over the Internet.

Can I opt-out of PetLynx™'s data collection and/or distribution?

PetLynx™ cannot offer some of its services without personal identifying information collection and distribution. Consequently, PetLynx™ does ask for the submission of some personal identifying information. PetLynx™ maintains your personal information so long as you are registered for these PetLynx™ services. When you cease to use PetLynx™ services, or at any other time, you may remove your personal identifying information from the database.

What about correcting or updating my information?

Fundamental to the design of the PetLynx™ Utility is the ability of all members to maintain their own contact information. If you are a registered subscriber in good standing, you may use the PetLynx™ Utility to correct or modify personal information at any time.

What about any other questions?

If you have any questions about this Privacy Policy, you can contact PetLynx™ at:
