The K9 Centre encourages you to review the privacy statements of Web sites you choose to link to from The K9 Centre so that you can understand how those Web sites collect, use and share your information.

The K9 Centre does not sell, rent or lease its customer lists to third parties. The K9 Centre may, from time to time, contact you on behalf of external business partners about a particular offering that may be of interest to you. In those cases, your unique personally identifiable information (e-mail, name, address, telephone number) is not transferred to the third party.

The K9 Centre keeps track of the Web sites and pages our customers visit within The K9 Centre in order to determine what The K9 Centre services are the most popular. This data is used to deliver customised content and advertising within The K9 Centre to customers whose behavior indicates that they are interested in a particular subject area.

The K9 Centre Web sites will disclose your personal information, without notice, only if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on The K9 Centre or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of The K9 Centre and, (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of The K9 Centre, or the public.

Use of Cookies

The K9 Centre Web site use “cookies” to help you personalise your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a Web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.

One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalise The K9 Centre pages, or register with The K9 Centre site or services, a cookie helps The K9 Centre to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same The K9 Centre Web site, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use The K9 Centre features that you customised.

You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of The K9 Centre services or Web sites you visit.

Security of your Personal Information

The K9 Centre secures your personal information from unauthorised access, use or disclosure. The K9 Centre secures the personally identifiable information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorised access, use or disclosure. When personal information (such as a credit card number) is transmitted to other Web sites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.

Changes to this Statement

The K9 Centre will occasionally update this Statement of Privacy to reflect company and customer feedback. The K9 Centre encourages you to periodically review this Statement to be informed of how The K9 Centre is protecting your information.
