Information We Collect From You and How We Use It
The information you give to Vet Innovations is used to provide you with personalized content and to continually improve the convenience and functionality of this Site for our customers. In general, you can visit Vet Innovations on the World Wide Web without telling us who you are or providing us with any information. If you wish to create an account on the Site you will be asked to register and provide demographic, personal and commercial information. We collect the domain names (not the e-mail addresses) of all visitors to our Site to measure the number of visits, pages visited, average time spent on the Site, etc. We also collect the e-mail addresses of those who send us e-mail messages, but we will never sell those addresses to any other company.
When you provide us with personal or commercial information, you are agreeing to share that information with Vet Innovations. When you provide us with such information (for example, your name, company name, address, phone number, and other personal data, collectively, “Personal Information”), we will often let you know at the time of collection how we will use this information. For example, we may use information you have given us to provide a personalized service, ensure the proper delivery and billing of orders, inform you about our products and services, or measure the interest of visitors like yourself in the features of our products and websites.
We may tailor our offers to you based on information you provide when you purchase products, from your responses to our online surveys, from information and behavior that may indicate your preferences, as well as information available from external sources.
We may also conduct online surveys to better understand the needs and profiles of visitors to our websites. When we conduct such a survey, we will let you know how we will use your responses at the time we collect them from you. Your participation in any of our surveys is optional. You are not required to respond to a survey in order to visit our Sites or take advantage of any of their features.
When you place an order through any of our Sites or online services, we will collect the following Personal Information to properly process your order: your name, company name, address, phone number, e-mail address, shipping information and purchase order information. We will use reputable companies to verify your credit card information and credit worthiness before billing your account. Where applicable, we will also share your shipping information with the delivery service you request.
Vet Innovations may also gather certain information automatically that is stored in log files, which does not identify you. For example, we may use Web site analytics tools on our Site to retrieve information from your browser, including the web site you came from, the search engine and the keywords you used to find our Site, the pages you view within our Site, your browser add-ons, and your browser’s width and height. We may also use technologies, such as cookies and web beacons (described below), to collect information about the pages you view, the links you click and other actions you take on our Site. Additionally, we collect certain standard information that your browser sends to every web site you visit, such as your IP address, browser type and language, access times and referring web site addresses.
We may combine information you give us with other information from our sources, transactions and communications. This may include, but is not limited to, information from our products and applications, or other interactions that you may have with Vet Innovations. We may also combine that information with data that is publicly available and data from third parties.
