1. What information does Garanimals.com collect from you and for what purpose?

Garanimals.com collects two types of information about its visitors: (i) personally identifiable information, and (ii) non-personally identifiable information. Our primary goal in collecting information from you is to provide you with a smooth and customized experience while using Garanimals.com and to improve the quality and marketing of our products.

(i) Personally Identifiable Information
This refers to information that lets us know who you are such as your name, e-mail address, and telephone number. The only way Garanimals obtains personally identifiable information is if you provide it directly to us on the “Contact Us” page or if you send an e-mail directly to [email protected] so that we may respond to your message or comment about the website or a product related issue.

(ii) Non-Personally Identifiable Information
This refers to information that does not by itself identify a specific individual. Garanimals.com gathers certain information based upon where you use the website. This information is compiled and analyzed for statistical purposes and to monitor website traffic by geographical location. For example, this information may include your Internet Protocol ("IP") address. An IP address is an identifier for a computer or device on a Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol network such as the World Wide Web. In other words, an IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer. Whenever you are surfing the web, web servers can locate and identify your computer. An IP address does not provide any personally identifiable information. Computers require IP addresses in order for users to communicate on the internet, browse and shop. Garanimals does not retain IP addresses, it merely collects geographical information to determine the state or country from which its users accessed its website.
