Protecting your private information is our priority. This Statement of Privacy applies to www.fearfreepets.com and Fear Free, LLC and governs data collection and usage.
Through our website (the “Site”), Fear Free, LLC offers you access to and makes available to you (the “Services”) a variety of content, including without limitation our website, course content, audio content, video content, text, publications, photos, images, blogs, resources, tools, special offers, an online store, code and any other materials (collectively, the “Content“). This policy applies to your access to and use of the Services and Content. We are referred to herein as “we“, “us“, or “our“, and you will be referred to herein as “member“, “you“, or “your“. The purpose of this policy is to inform you about the information we collect, how we use and share that information, and the ways in which you can control how we use and share that information. By accessing the Site or submitting your information through our Services, you agree to the terms of this policy and you expressly consent to the collection, use, and disclosure of your information in accordance with this policy.
- Categories of Personal Information We Collect
There are two categories of personal information we may collect from you through the Sites:
- Personally Identifiable Information: this is information that is identifiable to you, as an individual, which you may provide to the Sites if you register on the Sites and engage in any Site activities;
- Non-Personally Identifiable Information: this is information commonly collected by many websites to track website usage and may include, for example, computer and server IP addresses, browser versions, pages most visited, duration and time of visit, and geographic location, but this information is not directly linked to you personally.
- Information We Receive or Collect From You
Registration Data: When you register, we ask you to provide certain information, which includes name, business address, email and job title for professionals. For pet owners, we collect name, email, address, how you heard about us, gender and your veterinarian info, e (the “Registration Data“), as well as a password for your account. This information is considered personally identifiable information.
Payment Information: If you subscribe for the Services or purchase other products or services, you will also be asked to provide (at a minimum) your name and credit card information (“Payment Information“). We do not store, keep or have access to your credit card information, as it is collected, processed, and stored by a third-party payment processor.
Course Activity: When you use the Services, we keep track of your course activity, which may include your course completion dates, test scores, course access, drop off times, additional courses selected and consumed. This information is considered personally identifiable information.
Technical Information: We may collect certain non-personally identifiable technical information through the use of log files and servers. Web and application servers create log files automatically as part of their setup and configuration. Information in a log file may include IP address, browser type, Internet service provider, date/time stamps, MAC address, file requested, and other usage information and statistics.
Contact Information: If you choose to participate in certain features of the Services, you may provide us, and we may collect, your contact information, including your name, mailing address, and phone number (“Contact Information“). The email address you provided as part of your Registration Data is not considered Contact Information for the purposes of this policy.
Device Information: If you access and use the Services from a computer, mobile phone, tablet, automobile, or other electronic device, we may collect information about those devices. For example, our servers receive and store information about your computer and browser, including your Internet Protocol (IP) address, browser type, and other related software or hardware information. If you access the Services from a mobile phone, tablet, automobile, or other electronic device, we may collect and store information such as device type, operating system version and type, unique identifiers (such as Android Advertising ID, VIN, MAC address, and IDFA), carrier, and other related information for that device.
Location Information: As part of registration for the Services, you agree to provide us with, and allow us to use, your zip or postal code. Additionally, we may collect and use approximated or real-time location information, such as GPS location, from devices you use to access the Services. We will provide you with notice and an opportunity to consent before we access and collect your real-time location information, and depending on your device manufacturer, you may have the ability to revoke this consent at any time.
- Information Collection Technologies
IP address tracking; An IP address is a number that’s automatically assigned to your computer by your Internet service provider whenever you’re on the Internet. In addition to logging your IP Address, our server may also record the referring page that linked you to us (e.g., another web site or a search engine); the pages you visit and how long you stay on the Sites; and other Web usage activity and data. In some cases your IP address stays the same from browser session to browser session; but if you use a consumer internet access provider, your IP address probably varies from session to session
The Non-Personally Identifiable Information we collect may be used to measure the Sites’ traffic, help us to evaluate and improve the Sites, provide data points for marketing and business analysis, and better serve our Users. We may share Non-Personally Identifiable Information with third parties, but only in an aggregate statistical form that includes no personally identifying information. If we combine Non-Personally Identifiable Information with Personally Identifiable Information, through data mapping or otherwise, the combined information will be treated as Personally Identifiable Information.
- How We Use Information We Receive or Collect
Generally: In general, we may use your Registration Data, and/or other information or data we receive or collect, as well as data we derive or infer from combinations of the foregoing, for a variety of purposes, such as:

- We partner with third parties to provide specialized services on our behalf, such as credit card processors, customer support, or bulk email processors who send out emails on our behalf. These companies are authorized to use your personal information only as necessary to provide these services to us. They are not authorized to use your personal information for their own, unrelated purposes.

Sharing of Personally Identifiable Information: We do not share personally identifiable information with third parties other than as described in this policy. However, we may share your information, including personally identifiable information, in order to (i) protect or defend our legal rights or property, or the legal rights of our business partners, employees, agents, and contractors (including enforcement of our agreements); (ii) protect the safety and security of our users or members of the public including acting in urgent circumstances; (iii) protect against fraud or to conduct risk management; or (iv) comply with the law, legal process, or legal requests.

- Managing Your Information
Modification of Your Registration Data: We provide you with the ability to modify your Registration Data, which you may do through the settings section of our Site or by contacting customer support.
Retention of Your Registration Data: We will retain and use your Registration Data and the other information we collect about you for as long as your account is active or as needed to provide you Services. We will retain and use this information for the purposes for which it was collected (as specified in this policy), including, to provide the Services to you, comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.
Cancellation or Deactivation of Accounts: If you would like to request the cancellation or deactivation of your account, you should contact our customer support team for assistance. If you elect to have your user account deleted from our database, all of your data will effectively be removed and no longer be available to us. You can reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Cached Profiles on Search Engines: Please note that although we may deactivate your account at your request, Internet search engines such as Google and Bing cache publicly available webpages for a period of time beyond our control, and may make your deactivated or formerly public profile available to users of their services on their platforms until such time as they refresh their webpage cache.
Rights to “Opt Out”: If you are receiving emails, texts or similar on line communications from us, it is because we understood from your participation on our Sites that you were interested in receiving ongoing information from us. If at any point you no longer wish to receive such communications, you may at any time “unsubscribe” from these communications by following the ‘opt out’ directions to be found at or near the end of the communication. If you have any questions about the opt-out process, you can contact us at email@example.com. Please note that if we have already shared your personal contact information with one of our business partners, unsubscribing from our communications list will not prevent these third parties from continuing to email or text you. You will have to send an opt-out request to those third parties directly. Opportunities to “opt out” from receiving emails and texts are usually found on these companies’ websites or at the end of their emails or texts.
- Security and Content From Other Websites
Protection of Data From Loss: We have implemented security measures designed to protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information we collect or receive from you. For example, when you enter sensitive information (such as a credit card number) on our order forms, we encrypt the transmission of that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL). However, despite our efforts, no security measures are perfect or impenetrable, and we cannot guarantee the security of our databases nor that information you supply will not be intercepted while being transmitted to us over the Internet.
Data Integrity: We will use personally identifiable information, if any, that we collect and receive from you in ways that are relevant and compatible with the purpose for which that information was collected or provided to us as more fully disclosed in this policy. We will take steps to ensure that all personally identifiable information collected, processed, and/or stored is protected from destruction, corruption, or use in a manner inconsistent with the purpose for which we received it.
- Our Policies Concerning Children
We prohibit registration by, and do not knowingly collect personal information from, anyone under 16 years of age. In the event we obtain actual knowledge that we have collected information from children under the age of 16, we will take measures to remove such information from our servers. If you believe that we might have any personal information from a child under 16, please contact our customer support team.
- Your California Privacy Rights
Pursuant to California Civil Code Section 1798.83, this policy sets forth that we only share personal information (as defined in California Civil Code Section 1798.83) with third parties for direct marketing purposes if you either specifically opt-in, or are offered the opportunity to opt-out and elect not to opt-out of such sharing at the time you provide personal information or when you choose to participate in a feature on the Services. If you do not opt-in or if you opt-out at that time, we will not share your personal information with that identified third party for direct marketing purposes.
