    4. Sharing Information with Third Parties: We sometimes contract with third parties to assist us in maintaining and managing our user information, to fulfill promotions, to communicate with our users and for other purposes where we believe such sharing is of benefit or legally required or otherwise permitted by you. For Example:
      1. We may provide information to service providers to help us bring you the services we offer. Specifically, we may use third parties to facilitate our business, such as to host the service at a co-location facility for servers, to send out email updates about the Sites, to remove repetitive information from our user lists, to process payments for products or services, or to provide search results or links (including sponsored links). In connection with these offerings and business operations, our service providers may have access to your personal information for use for a limited time in connection with these business activities. If we use third parties for the processing of any personal information, we will make reasonable efforts to implement contractual and technical protections limiting the use of that information to our specified purposes.
      2. You may be presented with an opportunity to receive information and/or marketing offers from third party(s). If you do not agree to have your personal information shared, feel free to contact us by contacting customer service via email at and place the words “Opt-out” in the subject heading and your personal information will not be shared with such third party(s). If you do agree to have your personal information shared, your personal information will be disclosed to such third party(s) and all information you disclose will be subject to the privacy policy and practices of such third party(s). We are not responsible for the privacy policies and practices of such third party(s) and, therefore, you should review the privacy policies and practices of such third party(s) prior to agreeing to receive such information from third party(s). If you later decide that you no longer want to receive communication from a third party, you will need to contact that third party directly.
      3. To the extent it is permitted by the law, we may share, rent, sell or otherwise provide your personal information or other information collected online with unrelated third parties for marketing or any other lawful purposes. If you do not agree to have your personal information or other information collected online shared with third parties for these purposes, feel free to contact us by contacting customer service via email at 1341 West Fullerton Avenue PMB 365 Chicago, IL 60614 and placing the words “Opt-out” in the subject heading.
      4. We may be required to disclose user information pursuant to lawful requests, such as subpoenas or court orders, or in compliance with applicable laws. We do not reveal information until we have a good faith belief that an information request by law enforcement or private litigants meets applicable legal standards. Additionally, we may share account or other information when we believe it is necessary to comply with law, to protect our interests or property, to prevent fraud or other illegal activity perpetrated through the Sites, or to prevent imminent bodily harm. This may include sharing information with other companies, lawyers, agents, or government agencies.
  4. Third Party Advertising: Ads that appear on the Sites can be served directly to users by third party advertisers. They may automatically receive your IP address in such cases. These third party advertisers may also download cookies to your computer, or use other technologies such as JavaScript and web beacons (also known as 1×1 gifs) to measure the effectiveness of their ads and to personalize advertising content. Using these techniques allows the advertising network to recognize your computer each time they send you an ad in order to measure the effectiveness of their ads and to personalize advertising content. In this way, they may compile information about where you or individuals using your computer saw their advertisements and determine which advertisements are clicked on. Walk the Dog does not have access to or control of the cookies that may be placed by the third party advertisers. This privacy policy covers the use of cookies by Walk the Dog and does not cover the use of cookies or other tracking technologies by any of its advertisers.
  5. Our Commitment to Children’s Privacy: Protecting the privacy of the very young is extremely important to us. No part of our website is structured to attract anyone under 13. We never collect or maintain information at our website from those under the age of 13. If we obtain actual knowledge that we have collected information about a child under the age of 13, that information will be immediately deleted from our records.
  6. International Users: Our computer systems are currently based in the United States where data protection requirements and privacy regulations may be different than other parts of the world. If you create an online account on the Sites as a visitor or from outside the United States, you will have agreed to the terms of this Privacy Policy and our Terms of Use, you will have consented to processing of all such information in the United States, and you will have agreed that your personal information will be subject to the requirements of the privacy regulations of the United States, which may not offer an equivalent level of protection as certain other countries.
  7. Security and Data Storage: We employ procedural and technological security measures that are designed to safeguard your personal information from loss, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration or destruction.
  8. Changes to this Privacy Policy: This privacy policy describes the types of information we currently collect, and the ways we use and protect that information. From time to time, we may collect different types of information and use that information in different ways. For example, when we add features or services to our Sites, we may edit this policy to explain the new practices. Because protecting your privacy is very important to us, we do not expect major changes in policy.
