Privacy Policy

Charlie Dog Boxer Company, LLC (“CDBC,” “us,” or “we”) operates this website (the “Website”), and this Privacy Policy sets forth the Website’s information and privacy practices. This Privacy Policy is incorporated by reference into the Terms of Site Use of the Website. You should read this Privacy Policy thoroughly and contact us at info@charliedog.com if you have any questions about this Privacy Policy.

1.              What Information Does CDBC Collect?

a.              Information You Submit

CDBC may ask you to provide information about yourself, including your name, address, phone number, email address and credit or debit card information for your CDBC purchases. If you wish to change your account information please Contact Us.

b.              Use of Cookies

CDBC uses website “cookies” to help you use our services more easily and to help us improve the Website and our service. A “cookie” is a small data file that a website sends to your browser, which may then be stored on your computer to help the Website remember information about you so that it is easier and more efficient to use the Website. CDBS’s Website uses session cookies that do not contain any of your personal information, cannot be used to track you on the internet, and do not remain on your computer after you close your web browser window. Session cookies can only be used by the Website and they only exist for as long as you are on the Website. Depending on the settings in your browser, you may have the option to deny the session cookie, but doing so may negatively impact the Website’s performance or restrict us in serving your needs. The “help” portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie and how to disable cookies altogether.

When you purchase CDBC products online, your order is processed through FoxyCart.com LLC. FoxyCart is a PCI DSS Level 2 Service Provider that assures customer payment information is received and processed securely. In order to process your order, FoxyCart may log your IP address and other network information using cookies. FoxyCart also stores and transmits customer information using secure connections as necessary to process transactions and send transaction reports to CDBC. Under no circumstances will FoxyCart contact CDBC customers without CDBC’s explicit approval, nor will FoxyCart use customer information for marketing purposes or sell, share or otherwise disclose customer information unless required by law. Customer information may be used to create anonymous, aggregated statistics relating to transaction value and volume.

2.              How Does CDBC Use My Personal Information?

a.              User Identification

For the Website pages that offer user registration, we may retain that registration information on a secure server so that on visiting the Website again you will not need to re-enter the information. We may use that information in an aggregated form to measure number of visits, average time spent on the Website, pages viewed and other relevant statistics. We collect this information to measure the use of the Website and to improve the Website’s content.

b.              Contacting You About Promotions and New Products

On the Website there is a tab that lets you “opt in” to receive communications from us. We will not send unsolicited messages to you about promotions or new products or other marketing material unless you specifically have opted in to receive those messages. If you no longer wish to receive such emails from us after you have opted in, you can follow the procedures described below in the “How Can I ‘Opt Out’ of Receiving E-mail Communications?” section below. Please note that your request to opt out of receiving emails may not prevent us from sending such emails that were generated or scheduled before we are able to process your request.

c.              Use of Your Information

We require personally-identifiable information to complete transactions on the Website. We may also use information collected about your preferences and activities on the Website, such as the particular pages you request on the Website and purchases or other transactions you make through the Website. We may vary the content you receive in future visits to the Website based on your preferences and activities.

d.              Disclosure of Your Information

We will not disclose your personally-identifiable information to any persons or entities outside of CDBC, or lease, license, sublicense, rent, transfer, disclose, disseminate or otherwise grant access to any such information, unless:

(i) We must share your information to provide a product or service that you have ordered or requested, in which case we will require that any third party we use to fulfill your order agrees that it does not have the right to use your information other than to fulfill your order or request;

(ii) You have been given an opportunity to “opt in” and have agreed to opt in to such disclosure of your information; or

(iii) We are required to respond to a subpoena, court order or other legal requirement that requires disclosure of your personal information.

e.              Disclosure of Aggregate Information

We may combine your personally-identifiable information and information about your preferences and activities with those of all or a particular group of our users to prepare collective profiles of our users and their activities for our internal use. For example, we may track the number of our users who view certain pages or use certain features, compile the total dollar amount of sales conducted through the Website in a particular geographic region, or track purchasing trends. Such information, and other information we derive from individual users’ information, allows us to expand and provide you with quality information through more accurate marketing and advertising. We may share aggregated information concerning our users, without attribution of personal information, to other companies with whom we conduct business.

f.              How Can I “Opt Out” of Receiving E-mail Communications?

If you do not wish to receive email messages from us, please choose “unsubscribe” from within the email that you receive. CDBC will promptly process your unsubscribe request.

3.              How Does CDBC Secure the Website?

a.              Security

CDBC uses procedural and technical safeguards to secure your personal information against loss, theft, alteration, and unauthorized access, use and disclosure. Any information you enter on our accounts setup page is encrypted before transmission to our server by using 128-bit Secure Sockets Layer encryption software. You can safely enter your credit or debit card and registration information and it cannot be read in transit to our server. CDBC also uses many security procedures to protect your information from unauthorized access by users inside and outside the company.

Regardless of the precautions we take, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, and you transmit such information at your own risk.

What You Can Do To Protect Your Information?

(i) Use only secure websites that begin with “https” when disclosing your information;

(ii) Avoid using easy to guess access and PIN codes;

(iii) Never respond to unsolicited requests for your Social Security number or financial information;

(iv) Do not disclose your Website passwords or account information to any other person; and

(v) Be sure to sign off when you finish using a shared computer.

b.              Hyperlinks

The Website may contain links to other websites, and we cannot be, and are not, responsible for maintaining your privacy once you leave the Website. If you provide any information to parties who operate websites that link to or from the Website, different rules may apply to their collection, use, safeguarding and disclosure of your personal information. You should review other websites’ policies before providing any sensitive or personal information on those websites. CDBC shall not, under any circumstances, have any liability whatsoever for the activities conducted by or on any website accessed from or through the Website.

4.              Does CDBC Collect Information from Persons Under 13 Years of Age?

CDBC does not attempt to collect personally-identifiable information from persons under the age of 13 without prior verifiable parental consent. If we learn that we inadvertently have received such information online from a child under the age of 13, we will delete such information from our records. If you are under the age of 13, please do not submit any personally-identifiable information to us. If you are the parent or guardian of a person under the age of 13 who has provided personally-identifiable information to us, please inform us by contacting us at info@charliedog.com and we will remove such information from our database. If you are concerned about your children’s use of the Website, you may use web filtering technology to supervise or limit access to the Website.

5.              Your California Privacy Rights

Pursuant to California Civil Code Section 1798.83, a California resident who has provided personal information to a business with whom he or she has established a business relationship for personal, family, or household purposes is entitled to request information about whether the business has disclosed personal information to any third parties for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes. In general, if the business has made such a disclosure of personal information, upon receipt of a request by a California customer, the business is required to provide a list of all third parties to whom personal information was disclosed in the preceding calendar year and a list of the personal information categories that were disclosed. However, under the law a business is not required to provide the above-described lists if the business adopts and discloses to the public, in its privacy policy, a policy of not disclosing customer’s personal information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes unless the customer first affirmatively agrees to the disclosure, as long as the business maintains and discloses this privacy policy. Instead, the business may comply with the law by notifying the customer of his or her right to prevent disclosure of personal information and providing a cost-free means to exercise that right. As stated in this Privacy Policy, CDBC does not share information with third parties for their direct marketing purposes unless you affirmatively agree to such disclosure, typically by opting in to receive information from a third party that is participating in a sweepstakes or other promotion on the Website. If you ask us to share your information with a third party for its marketing purposes with respect to a particular promotion, we will only share information in connection with that specific promotion as we do not share information with any third party on a continual basis. To prevent disclosure of your personal information for use in direct marketing by a third party, do not “opt in” to such use when you provide personally-identifiable information on the Website. Please be advised that whenever you opt in to receive future communications from a third party, your information will be subject to that third party’s privacy policy, not this one. If you later decide that you do not want that third party to use your information, you will need to contact that third party directly, as we have no control over how third parties use information. You should always review the privacy policy of any party that collects your personal information to determine how that entity will handle your information.

California customers may request further information about our compliance with this law by e-mailing info@charliedog.com. Please note that CDBC is only required to respond to one request per customer each year, and we are not required to respond to requests made by means other than through this e-mail address.

6.              Will This Privacy Policy Change?

CDBC may revise this Privacy Policy at any time by updating this posting without advance notice to you. Such revisions shall be effective immediately upon posting. It is your obligation to review this Privacy Policy periodically.

7.              Miscellaneous

This Privacy Policy for the Website constitutes CDBC’s and your entire understanding with respect to you privacy and the Website’s use of your information. We control and/or operate the Website from offices in the United States of America. We do not represent that materials on the Website are appropriate or available for use in other locations. Persons who choose to access the Website from other locations do so on their own initiative and at their own risk, and are responsible for compliance with local laws, as applicable. This Privacy Policy shall be construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Connecticut, without regard to its conflict of laws rules. You agree to personal jurisdiction by the federal and state courts located in Fairfield County, Connecticut. No waiver of any breach or default hereunder shall be deemed to be a waiver of any preceding or subsequent breach or default. You agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising out of or related to use of the Website must be filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose or be forever barred. If any provision of this Privacy Policy is found to be unenforceable for any reason, then that provision shall be deemed severable from this Privacy Policy and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.
