Information we collect from you directly: When you create an account, we will collect a variety of information to create three profiles:
Information we collect from your mobile device: We collect your unique mobile device identifier and your location through GPS, Bluetooth or wireless network triangulation in order to obtain you or your pet’s location for the purposes of providing our Service.
Information we collect when you use the Service: We collect information about your pet’s health, activity, sleep, nutrition, body positions and location automatically through the Waggit Device. We collect certain information about your mobile device, the Waggit Device, and the operation of the Waggit Application through technology such as cookies, web beacons, log files, or other tracking/recording tools. The information we collect through the use of tracking technologies may include, but is not limited to, IP address, how you interact with the Service, mobile device type, mobile device IDs or other persistent identifiers.
Information third parties collect for Services payment information: We will direct you to our third party processors to process payments for the Services and your use of those third party processers services are subject to the third party payments processor’s policies. We do not collect your payment information, such as credit card numbers, and disclaim all liability for the third party payment processors’ handling of your payment information. Your payment information is entered directly into the third party processor’s websites or applications, and Waggit does not have access to or store that information.
We use the information we collect from and about you to operate, maintain, and provide to you the features and functionality of the Service and to communicate directly with you, such as to send you notifications about a change in the health of your pet. We may also send you Service-related emails (e.g., Waggit Account verification, consent notifications, order confirmations, change or updates to features of the Service, technical and security notices), and promotional emails communications.
We use this information to do the following:
We will not distribute, rent or sell your personal information to third parties outside of Waggit, its subsidiaries, and affiliates without your consent, except as noted below:
Except as described above, we will not disclose personal information to third parties (including law enforcement, other government entity, or civil litigant; excluding our subcontractors) unless required to do so by law or subpoena or if in our sole discretion, we determine it is necessary to (a) conform to the law, comply with legal process, or investigate, prevent, or take action regarding suspected or actual illegal activities; (b) to enforce our Waggit Terms of Service, take precautions against liability, to investigate and defend ourselves against any claims or allegations, or to protect the security or integrity of our Service; and/or (c) to exercise or protect the rights, property, or personal safety of Waggit, our Users or others.
Waggit exercises care in facilitating the transmission of information between your mobile device or computer and the third party servers that operate and store information for the Service. The personal information we collect is stored in operating environments that are not available to the public. While we have mechanisms in place to safeguard your personal information once we receive it, no transmission of data over the Internet or any other public network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure.
California Civil Code Section 1798.83 permits you to request and obtain from us, once a year, free of charge, a list of the third parties to whom we disclosed your personal information as defined under that statute, for direct marketing purposes in the preceding calendar year and the categories of that kind of personal information that was disclosed to them. If you are a California resident and you wish to make such a request you may contact us by writing us at:
The Services are not directed to or intended for use by minors. Consistent with the requirements of applicable law, if we learn that we have received any information directly from a minor without his or her parent’s verified consent, we will use that information only to respond directly to that child (or his or her parent or legal guardian) to inform the minor that he or she cannot use the Services and subsequently will delete that information
California Minors: While the Service is not intended for anyone under the age of 18, if you are a California resident who is under age 18 and you are unable to remove publicly-available User Content that you have submitted to us, you may request removal by contacting us at: firstname.lastname@example.org. When requesting removal, you must be specific about the information you want removed and provide us with specific information, such as the URL for each page where the information was entered, so that we can find it. We are not required to remove any content or information that: (1) federal or state law requires us or a third party to maintain; (2) was not posted by you; (3) is anonymized so that you cannot be identified; (4) you don’t follow our instructions for removing or requesting removal; or (5) you received compensation or other consideration for providing the User Content or information. Removal of your User Content from the Service does not ensure complete or comprehensive removal of that content or information from our systems or the systems of our service providers. We are not required to delete the User Content or information posted by you; our obligations under California law are satisfied so long as we anonymize the User Content or information or render it invisible to other Users and the public.
