What Information Is Collected:
In general, we limit the collection of personal information to only the data that is relevant to the user experience on our site, and/or for participation in our loyalty programs or store events. When you place an order with us or register for an account on northwestpets.com, we will request some or all of the following: your first and last name, billing address, shipping address, credit card number and expiration date, phone number, and email address.
Our site may employ the use of "cookies" and other software to receive certain types of technical information when your computer, mobile phone or other device accesses our site. This information is compiled and may be viewable on both a personal and an aggregated level, and it may include a URL that you viewed prior to our site, the next URL visited, what browsing software you are using, and your Internet Protocol address. We may also collect information relevant to navigating our site, such as purchase history, products viewed or searched for, pages visited, and page interaction information. We may associate the information stored from cookies with personally identifiable information you submit to create an account, or when you shop in one of our physical stores.
Use of Personal Information:
All personal information collected in connection with shopping on northwestpets.com is treated as private, and kept on a secure server to protect it from outside parties. Information captured for the purposes of tracking purchases for loyalty programs may also be housed on a third party server (Astro Loyalty). We use your information only for the limited purposes of processing your orders, following up on order issues, administering our site, awarding you with loyalty discounts or free goods, or notifying you of promotional offers or store events that may be of interest to you (depending upon on your Email preferences, you do have the ability to opt out).
Website Hosting and Content:
Web hosting and/or development of northwestpets.com is provided by a PCI-compliant Magento host. Questions about security or abuse should be directed to Magento Website Development.
The content of this site is intended to viewable for general audiences. Northwest Pets will not knowingly attempt to collect or maintain personal data from users of this site who are minors.
We will occasionally provide links to third party sites in connection with content offered on northwestpets.com. We are not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such websites.
Our Commitment To The Security of Your Data:
The security of your personal data is of the utmost importance to Northwest Pets, and we are committed to keeping it confidential. We will not rent or sell names, addresses, phone numbers, or Email addresses under the normal course of operations. However, in the case of the sale or dissolution of the business, your individually identifying information may be one of the assets transferred in connection with such transactions, and may be subject to a different data handling philosophy in the future.
We take steps, including the deployment of technological resources and the use of firewalls, systems and procedures, to protect the security of your personal information. Credit card data used for purchases on northwestpets.com is encrypted through Authorize.net servers and is safeguarded according to industry PCI data handling compliance standards. For security of transactions, our site uses the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol, which encrypts any personal information you enter into registration forms on the Magento Application. The encryption process protects your information, by scrambling it before it is transmitted from your computer. We also make commercially reasonable efforts to ensure the security of your personal information on our system.
Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet, for the purposes or making purchases or general communication, can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot warranty the security of information you transmit to us. If necessary, Northwest Pets will notify you of any known or reasonably suspected data breach involving your personal information, in accordance with the law.
