Privacy Policy and Terms & Conditions

What information do we collect?

We collect information from you when you register on our site, subscribe to our newsletter, respond to a survey, fill out a form or add pet information.

When ordering or registering on our site, as appropriate, you may be asked to enter your: name, birth date, e-mail address, mailing address, phone number or credit card information, along with other personal information. You may, however, visit our site anonymously without creating an account.

Google, as a third party vendor, uses cookies to serve ads on PetHub.com

Google's use of the DART cookie enables it to serve ads to users based on their visit to sites on the Internet. Users may opt out of the use of the DART cookie by visiting the Google ad and content network privacy policy.

ReCAPTCHA

Google also offers a service called ReCAPTCHA to minimize spam and accounts being created on this website for the purposes of promoting spam. Previous methods included clicking a link to confirm email authenticity and only then validating an account. Also, typing in the distorted letters from a graphic image that were difficult for a 'bot' to automate. As spammers have gotten more sophisticated, so have the methods of protection. The latest is the checkbox on the registration form that says, "I am not a robot" that must be clicked to complete the form. This sends the user's IP address and uses other methods of determining if the user is authentic or not. If not, they may be required to undergo additional steps of confirmation.  For more information, you may read Google's privacy and terms of use pages (these links also appear on the ReCAPTCHA widget shown on the registration page).
