Privacy Policy

The Lost Dogs’ Home is committed to safeguarding your privacy at all times.

The Lost Dogs’ Home has created this privacy statement in order to demonstrate our firm commitment to privacy. The following discloses our information gathering and dissemination practices for all of the websites run by The Lost Dogs’ Home.

The Lost Dogs’ Home does not collect personally identifiable information about individuals except when such individuals specifically provide such information on a voluntary basis. For example, such personally identifiable information may be gathered from the registration process for subscription or services and in connection with content submissions, community postings (e.g., forums), suggestions and transactional areas.

The Lost Dogs’ Home will collect, hold, use and disclose personal information so The Lost Dog’ Home can perform our animal welfare, customer service, educational, marketing, and fundraising functions.

Personally identifiable information on individual users will not be sold or otherwise transferred to unaffiliated third parties without the approval of the user.

We do reserve the right to perform statistical analyses of user behaviour and characteristics in order to measure interest in and use of the various areas of the site and to inform advertisers of such information as well as the number of users that have been exposed to or clicked on their advertising banners.

Upon request, we will allow any user to “opt out” of further promotional contacts at any time. Any request to access to the personal information The Lost Dogs’ Home holds about you, or opt out of communications, can be directed to The Lost Dogs’ Home by writing to: Privacy Compliance Officer, C/- The Lost Dogs’ Home PO Box 376 North Melbourne Vic 3051 or info@dogshome.com

Additionally upon request, we will use reasonable efforts to allow users to update/correct personal information previously submitted which the user states is erroneous to the extent such activities will not compromise privacy or security interests. Also, upon a user’s request, we will use commercially reasonable efforts to functionally delete the user and his or her personal information from its database; however, it may be impossible to delete a user’s entry without some residual information because of backups and records of deletions.

Notwithstanding any opt out of promotional information by the user, we reserve the right to contact a subscriber regarding account status, changes to the subscriber agreement and other matters relevant to the underlying service and/or the information collected.

Access to the database containing personal information is restricted to The Lost Dogs’ Home staff members with direct responsibility for customer service or management of the website. Authorised staff members are not allowed to pass on information about members to non-authorised staff without the express permission of the Managing Director.

The Lost Dogs’ Home reserves the right to change this policy at any time by notifying users of the existence of a new privacy statement. This statement and the policies outlined herein are not intended to and do not create any contractual or other legal rights in or on behalf of any party.

Third party vendors may use cookies to serve ads based on prior visits to this website. No personally identifiable information is collected by these cookies. You can opt out of third party vendor’s cookies at any time by visiting this page: http://www.networkadvertising.org/managing/opt_out.asp
