You must agree to these Terms and Conditions in order to use this site. Please read this document carefully. If you do not agree to all of the Terms and Conditions of this agreement, please do not use this site.

DogSupplies.com and DWP LLC may revise and update these Terms and Conditions at any time. Please periodically review the Terms and Conditions posted on this Web site because your continued usage of this Web site (the "Site") will mean you accept those changes.

Section 1. General Disclaimer.

DogSupplies.com and DWP LLC do not recommend or endorse any specific test, products, or procedures that may be mentioned on the Site. Any opinions expressed on the Site are the opinions of the authors. DogSupplies.com and DWP LLC do not assume any liability for the contents of any material provided on the Site. Reliance on any information provided by DogSupplies.com and DWP LLC, DogSupplies.com Experts, or other visitors to the Site is solely at your own risk. DogSupplies.com and DWP LLC assume no liability or responsibility for damage or injury to persons or property arising from any use of any product, information, idea, or instruction contained in the materials provided to you. DogSupplies.com and DWP LLC reserve the right to change or discontinue at any time any aspect or feature of this Site.

Section 2. Position on Your Privacy.
  1. General. DogSupplies.com and DWP LLC recognize the premium you place on privacy protection on the Internet. We strive to protect your privacy, including the information you share in the registration process that you must complete in order to become a participating subscriber ("Subscriber") and related services ("Subscription Services"), and the information you share within the other Interactive Areas of this Site.

    DogSupplies.com and DWP LLC do not collect personally identifiable information about Subscribers or other Site users ("Users") except when such individuals specifically provide such information on a voluntary basis. A Subscriber's or User's access to and use of the DogSupplies.com or services constitutes information voluntarily given by the Subscriber or User.
  2. Use of Registration Information. Personally identifiable information of individual Subscribers and Users will not be sold or otherwise transferred to unaffiliated third parties without the Subscriber's or User's prior consent. The Site stores the Internet Protocol (IP) address of your computer when you visit the Site. This information is only used to create broad demographic summaries of where our Subscribers and Users come from: for example, we know what percentage of Subscribers or Users come from Europe or Africa, but our use of the IP addresses does not include identifying who those users actually are. However, DogSupplies.com and DWP LLC may use registration information and other voluntarily submitted information in the following ways:
    • To provide our editors with information that is useful in developing new features and services for Site Subscribers and Users;
    • To provide advertisers with aggregate -- never individual -- information about our Subscriber base and User usage patterns; and
    • To allow us to potentially vary advertising based on Subscriber and User preference.
    • To provide the Subscriber base and User with an individual experience on the Site through personalization.

    DogSupplies.com and DWP LLC reserve the right to perform statistical analyses and profiling of Subscriber and User behavior and characteristics in order to measure interest in and use of the various areas of the Site and to inform partners of such information. DogSupplies.com and DWP LLC will provide only aggregate data from these analyses to third parties; no personally identifiable information will be disclosed. DogSupplies.com and DWP LLC may, at some time, permit third parties to offer subscription and/or registration-based services through the Site. In this event, DogSupplies.com and DWP LLC will not be responsible for any actions or policies of such third parties and Subscribers and Users should check the applicable privacy policy of such party before providing personally identifiable information.

    It is not possible for a Subscriber or User to delete his or her profile from our database, nor is it feasible to delete all traces of a Subscriber's or User's activity in the system. Messages posted to the boards are examples of user activities that are not feasible to delete.

    DogSupplies.com and DWP LLC may send regular email updates to Subscribers. You will have the opportunity to opt-out of the emails at any time using the link provided in the email . Please allow two to three business days for the actual cancellation to take effect. We will not share your email address with third parties without first receiving your permission.
  3. Voluntary Disclosure of Personally Identifiable Information on Bulletin Boards, Chat Rooms, and other Interactive Areas (collectively referred to as "Interactive Areas"). Subscribers and Users should be aware that when they voluntarily disclose personally identifiable information (for example, user name, email address) on the bulletin boards or chat areas of the Site, that information, along with any substantive information disclosed in the Subscriber's or User's communication, can be collected and correlated and used by third parties and may result in unsolicited messages from third parties. Such activities are beyond the control of DogSupplies.com and DWP LLC. DogSupplies.com and DWP LLC make no warranties about the discoverability of Subscribers' identity by methods beyond our control.
  4. Cookie Technology. The Site may employ cookie technology to allow Subscribers and Users to move more quickly through the Site. Cookies are small text files a website can use to recognize repeat users and facilitate the user's ongoing access to and use of the site. Generally, cookies work by assigning a unique number to the user that has no meaning outside the assigning site. They do not come onto a user's system nor do they pose a threat to a user's files. Subscribers and Users should be aware that DogSupplies.com and DWP LLC cannot control the use of cookies by advertisers or third parties hosting data for the Site. However, if a Subscriber or User does not want information collected through the use of cookies, there is a simple procedure in most browsers that allows the user to deny or accept the cookie feature. Please note that cookies may be necessary to provide the Subscriber or User with certain features (for example, customized delivery of information) available on the Site.
