This privacy statement provides notice of the standards and terms under which Deafinitely Dogs! protects the privacy of information supplied by visitors to sites on the World Wide Web that are owned and operated by Deafinitely Dogs!, including http://www.www.deafinitelydogs.org///.
This privacy statement provides notice of our information collection practices and of the ways in which your information may be used. This policy may change periodically.
What information does Deafinitely Dogs! collect and how is it used?
A. Personally-Identifiable Information
Deafinitely Dogs! typically receives specific data about its website visitors only when such information is provided voluntarily, such as when our visitors request information or fill out a form. Of course, some of these activities require that you give us information, such as when you apply for our program, submit a volunteer application, or request certain types of information.
When you provide personally-identifiable information to Deafinitely Dogs! through our website, it will be used to fulfill your specific request. Deafinitely Dogs! reserves the right, in its discretion, to send you bulletins and other important information about Deafinitely Dogs! services.
Absent any instructions from you, Deafinitely Dogs! may use information you provide to inform you about additional services offered by Deafinitely Dogs! and other goods and services providers with whom Deafinitely Dogs! has relationships and whose offerings might be of interest to you. Deafinitely Dogs! will not, however, sell, rent or trade your personally-identifiable information without your advanced permission, unless we are authorized or legally required to do so, or in the case of imminent physical harm to the visitor or others.
If you voluntarily offer any feedback, data, answers, questions, comments, suggestions, ideas or the like, Deafinitely Dogs! will treat that portion of the information as non-confidential and non-proprietary and, except as otherwise expressed in this privacy statement, Deafinitely Dogs! assumes no obligation to protect such information from disclosure.
B. Non Personally-Identifiable (Generic) Information
In general, Deafinitely Dogs! gathers some generic information automatically. Generic information does NOT reveal the identity of the visitor. It usually includes information about the Internet address assigned to your computer, the number and frequency of visitors, and when the Deafinitely Dogs! site was visited. Deafinitely Dogs! gathers this information for the limited purpose of determining customer service and website needs. We may accomplish this by using certain technologies, including “cookies” (a technology that can be used to provide the visitor with tailored information about Deafinitely Dogs! services).
You can set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie and you can refuse it.

(i) cooperates fully with state, local, and federal officials in any investigation relating to any content (including personal or private electronic communications transmitted to Deafinitely Dogs!) or purported unlawful activities of any user of the Service, and (ii) takes reasonable measures to protect its proprietary rights.
For the limited purposes of accomplishing such cooperation and measures and in compliance with applicable laws, Deafinitely Dogs! may be required to disclose personally identifiable information.
In addition, Deafinitely Dogs! may elect to monitor the areas of communication of any kind (i) to satisfy any law, regulation, or government request; (ii) if such disclosure is necessary or appropriate to operate Deafinitely Dogs!; or (iii) to protect the rights or property of Deafinitely Dogs! or others.
