Effective September 1, 2022
For purposes of this policy, “Personal Data” means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person.
What personal data we collect and why we collect it
The information you submit through our contact form is saved in our database for a short period of time in case the email from you to us generated by the contact form ends up in the wrong place (e.g., our spam) and we miss it.
When you download certain resources or if you fill out a form to subscribe to a mailing list on our website, we collect Personal Data. We may use that information to send you a newsletter or other promotional emails from Heidi’s Hounds only. We do not rent or trade email lists with other organizations and businesses.
We use a third-party provider, MailChimp, to deliver our newsletter. Through that service, we gather statistics around email opening and clicks using industry standard technologies to help us monitor and improve our e-newsletter. You can unsubscribe to general mailings at any time of the day or night by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of any of our emails.

Our website uses Google Analytics, a service which transmits website traffic data to Google servers in the United States. We use reports provided by Google Analytics to help us understand website traffic and webpage usage. Google Analytics does not identify individual users or associate your IP address with any other data held by Google.
Content from other websites and social media links
Our website may contain links to other websites. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. When you go to other websites from here, you may want to read their privacy policies too.
Who we share your data with
No one. We are not in the business of selling or sharing your personal information with other companies or individuals.
How long we retain your data
We only retain Personal Data for the limited period of time that we need it to fulfill the purposes for which we have initially collected it, unless otherwise required by law.
Contact form submissions will be deleted from our database after we respond to your inquiry.
What rights you have over your data
You are entitled to view, amend, or delete the Personal Data that we hold. To protect your privacy and the privacy of others, we will need evidence of your identity before we can grant you access to information about you or change it. Contact us if you wish to initiate this process.
How we protect your data
We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. We maintain appropriate administrative, technical and physical safeguards to protect Personal Data against accidental or unlawful destruction, accidental loss, unauthorized alteration, unauthorized disclosure or access, misuse, and any other unlawful form of processing of the Personal Data in our possession. We use SSL technology to encrypt data during transmission through public internet.
However, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. We cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or store on our website, and you do so at your own risk. We also cannot guarantee that such information may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of our physical, technical, or managerial safeguards. If you believe your Personal Data has been compromised, please contact us.
Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions or concerns about this policy.
