There are times when we may request information from you, such as your, name, address and e-mail address. When additional information is requested, we will try to let you know at the time of collection how we intend to use the personal information you provide, such as respond to your inquiry, participate in certain promotions, conduct a survey or allow you to access specific information. If you sign up for an PETLab electronic newsletter or e-mail list, each message will include instructions on how to "unsubscribe" from that list. We respect your right to choose whether to give us personal information or "opt out" if you do not wish to disclose personal information. We do our best to maintain the accuracy of any personal information you do supply to us.
DISCLOSURE OF INFORMATION
We may transfer or otherwise disclose information we collect from site visitors to employees and independent contractors of PETLab, analytic vendors, and other service providers and suppliers, if the disclosure will enable that party to perform a business, professional, or technical support function for PETLab. Otherwise, we will not disclose any personal information identifying users to any third party, unless required by law or otherwise needed in connection with legal proceedings or unless we have received your consent.
SECURITY AND QUALITY
PETLab is committed to taking reasonable steps to protect the individual identifying information that you provide. You can help PETLab update and maintain the accuracy of any personal information you supply by notifying PETLab of any changes to your address, title, phone number or e-mail address. In some programs, you may do this online by following the instructions on membership profile pages.
COOKIES, WEB BEACONS & OTHER TRACKING TECHNOLOGIES
Some PETLab Web sites may also use “Web beacon” technologies. When a visitor accesses pages on the PETLab Web site with a Web beacon, an anonymous notice of that visit is generated which may be processed by us or by our vendors. These Web beacons work in conjunction with cookies to let us know what portions of our site are of interest to our visitors and to help us provide you with tailored information from our web site.
If you turn off cookies, Web beacon technologies will still detect anonymous visits, but the notices they generate cannot be associated with other anonymous information or personally-identifiable information and are disregarded.
In order for children under 13 years old to participate in online activities that require registration, we require prior written permission from a parent. A parental consent form is available at [consent form URL]. This form must be signed by the child's parent or guardian and returned to firstname.lastname@example.org. Once we have obtained parental consent, we only ask the child for information that is reasonably necessary for the child to participate in our online activities.
A parent who has given PETLab permission to collect his or her child's information can, at any time, do the following: (1) confirm, correct or have deleted the child's personal information; (2) discontinue further use of the child's information and/or communication with the child; and/or, (3) revoke his or her earlier consent to collect and use the child's information. To update your child’s profile please complete the following form [URL for consent form] and please email to email@example.com. We will review or update your child's information as appropriate. Please be sure to include in your fax or email the email address your child used to register.
