Such non-personally identifiable information is collected passively using various technologies such as web beacons and may be used to track usage of the Site. Unless you have registered for the Site, the non-personally identifiable information we gather through the use of tracking technologies will not be matched with any Personal Data. Pet & Tie may store such non-personally identifiable information itself or such non-personally identifiable information may be included in databases owned and maintained by Pet & Tie affiliates, agents or service providers. The Site may use and share such non-personally identifiable information and pool it with other information to track, for example, the total number of visitors to our Site, the number of visitors to each page of our Site, and the domain names of our visitors’ Internet service providers. It is important to note that no Personal Data is available or used in this process of collecting non-personally identifiable information.
In operating the Site, we may use standard technologies, including “cookies.” A cookie is a piece of information that the computer that hosts our Site gives to your browser when you access the Site. Our cookies help provide additional functionality to the Site and help us analyze Site usage more accurately. For instance, our Site may set a cookie on your browser that allows you to access the Site without needing to remember and then enter a password more than once during a visit to the Site. In all cases in which we use cookies, we will not collect Personal Data except with your permission, which you may set through your web browser. On most web browsers, you will find a “help” section on the toolbar. Please refer to this section for information on how to receive notification when you are receiving a new cookie and how to turn cookies off. We recommend that you leave cookies turned on because they allow you to take advantage of some of the Site’s features.

The Do Not Track browser setting
We support the Do Not Track browser setting. Do Not Track (or DNT) is a preference you can set in your browser to let the websites you visit know that you do not want them collecting certain information about you.

Aggregated Personal Data:
In an ongoing effort to better understand and serve the users of the Pet & Tie we often conducts research on its customer demographics, interests and behavior based on the Personal Data and other information provided to us. This research may be compiled and analyzed on an aggregate basis, and this type of aggregated information does not identify you personally (the “Aggregate Data”). Pet & Tie may share this Aggregate Data with its affiliates, agents and business partners. Pet & Tie may also disclose Aggregate Data in order to describe our services to current and prospective business partners, and to other third parties for other lawful purposes.

Linking Other Social Media Accounts to Your Pet & Tie Account: Users can choose to link their other social media accounts to their Pet & Tie account. Currently, Pet & Tie offers Members the ability to link their Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts to their Pet & Tie account. Members who choose to link any of their other social media accounts to their Pet & Tie account consent to the sharing of information from their Pet & Tie account to their linked social media accounts. In addition, Pet & Tie may collect some information from the linked social media accounts such as, friend’s contact information, locations visited and things liked or posted. Pet & Tie may verify users’ profiles or may authorize profile verifications and Background checks Pet & Tie offers to individuals who have registered as members the option to provide some services to other members such as pet sitting and pet walking. Individuals who are providing services on the Site may be subject to profile verification, which may include checking phone numbers, names and e-mail addresses. The verification process is done at sole discretion of Pet & Tie and it is done to improve our services and increase members’ security. Pet & Tie reserves the right to randomly conduct verifications at its discretion.
In addition, at its discretion, Pet & Tie may request background checks, which may include Criminal checks, MVR checks, Criminal + MVR checks and Investigative Criminal Plus background checks (collectively "Background Checks"). Background Checks may be performed by third-party consumer reporting agencies at Pet & Tie’s sole discretion. Some examples where a Background Check may be needed are: a legal request from a Member’s attorney, prosecutors, claims from members and requests from insurance agencies.
Each of these Background Checks is regulated by the Fair Credit Reporting Act ("FCRA"), and the background reports resulting from these services are considered "consumer reports" under FCRA. Consumer reports may contain information on your character, general reputation, personal characteristics, and mode of living, including, but not limited to, consumer credit, criminal history, workers' compensation, driving, employment, military, civil, and educational data and reports.
Pet & Tie will receive a copy of each Background Check and will send a copy of the results to the member if the check returns any criminal or motor vehicle history. You are responsible for making sure that the email address you provide to Pet & Tie is correct, knowing that sensitive information will be sent to it. Pet & Tie may cancel or delete a member’s account that has a criminal record at its sole discretion. Pet & Tie has no obligation to inform users about deleting or canceling their accounts. The results of any Criminal, MVR, or Criminal + MVR Background Check that returns any criminal or motor vehicle history will not be shared with other users.
