The site may contain hyperlinks to and from other internet sites. Those sites may have different privacy practices from the ones described here. Since this statement applies solely to this site, please remember to read the privacy statements of the other sites you visit.

Browsing

This website does not collect personally identifiable information from your computer when you browse this website and request pages from our servers. This means that, unless you voluntarily and knowingly provide us with personally identifiable information, we will not know your name, your e-mail address, or any other personally identifiable information. When you request a page from our site, our servers log the information provided in the HTTP request header including the IP number, the time of the request, the URL of your request and other information that is provided in the HTTP header. We collect the HTTP request header information in order to make our website function correctly and provide you the functionality that you see on this website, as our servers use this information to deliver to you the pages on this website. We also use this information to better understand how visitors use our website and how we can better tune our website, its contents and functionality to meet your needs.

Information We Collect

There are two forms of information that The Peaceful Pack, Inc. collects online: site visitorship information and personal information voluntarily provided to The Peaceful Pack, Inc. by site visitors. Personal information is collected only when site visitors voluntarily provide it.

Site Visitorship Information
The Peaceful Pack, Inc. routinely gathers information on site activity, such as data on how many people visit the site, the pages they visit, where they come from, how long they stay, etc. Site visitorship information is:
o Collected on an aggregate, anonymous basis, which means no personal information is associated with this data
o Gathered through the use of web server logs and cookies. A web server log is a file where web site activity is stored. Cookies are small pieces of information that a web site sends to a visitor's computer and which is then stored on the visitor's hard drive. For more information, see the section on cookies in this statement.
o Used to better design our site

Personal Information
Personal information is collected on certain pages of the site. When we need to collect personally identifiable information from you to provide you with a particular service we will ask you to voluntarily supply us with the information we need. For example, if you decide to contact The Peaceful Pack, Inc. online to ask a question or learn more about our services, you may find these contact forms may ask for your name, e-mail, and street address, telephone number, and other information to assist us in providing you with a high level of service. Personal information is also used to set up user accounts which enable you to look at your pictures and compile your print order. In the future, The Peaceful Pack, Inc. may ask you to provide personal information, some optional, some required, on specific pages of the site, such as during ecommerce transactions. We will use your e-mail address to send a confirmation and, if necessary, might use the other information to contact you for help to process the request or send related information. We will also use your e-mail address to notify you about special offers and promotions as described in the E-Mail section of this Statement, but you can opt out of e-mails at any time.

Creating a Personal Account

If you choose to use The Peaceful Pack, Inc. to photograph your pet, you may create a personal account to assist in creating your print orders. This account would enable you to have secure on-line access to your pictures, and may contain information such as your preferred photographs, most memorable moments, etc. Creating a personal account makes it more convenient for you to make requests and to view your images. It will also allow us to inform you about special offers and promotions that may be of interest to you. In addition, if you choose, you can include credit card information in your account. Your credit card information will be used for subsequent orders to increase request or purchase speed and eliminate the need for you to repeatedly enter your credit card information. The security of this information is addressed in security section below. As this becomes functional you will be able access and review, update or deactivate your personal account information on-line.

The Peaceful Pack, Inc. Account Communications and Use of Account Information

We use the information you provide about yourself online to provide you with information about The Peaceful Pack, Inc. and promotions that may be of interest to you. Your information may be shared with our employees, independent contractors, agents, and/or business partners acting on our behalf to fulfill your order or award, collect payments, or to provide a product or service you have requested. We do not share this information with entities not associated with The Peaceful Pack, Inc. except to the extent necessary to complete your transaction and, when we do share it, it is subject to their agreement to treat it as confidential business information and with the understanding that it may not be used for any purpose other than to perform their specified function.

We use return e-mail addresses to answer the e-mail we receive as well as to provide you with product and service updates and to notify you about special promotions and offers.

In the course of growing or restructuring our business, we may purchase the assets of another company or sell the assets of our company. During these transactions, information about customers is frequently considered a business asset that is the subject of such a purchase or sale. Also, in the unlikely event that The Peaceful Pack, Inc., or substantial all of its assets are either acquired or subject to liquidation in bankruptcy, information may be transferred as well.

We release information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with law, to enforce or apply or terms and conditions of use and other agreements, or to protect the rights, property, or safety of The Peaceful Pack, Inc., site users, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction.

Securing the Transmission and Storage of Information

We treat the information you provide to us as confidential information; accordingly, we work hard to ensure that our systems meet industry security standards. To help prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to help safeguard and secure the information we collect online. The security of personal information you submit in connection with a promotion entry and/or registration for any feature on the site is of utmost concern to us, and we strive to ensure its security on our systems. However, no data transmission over the internet can be guaranteed to be completely secure; we cannot guarantee the security of any information you transmit to us, and you transmit such information at your own risk. We will continue to assess new technology to evaluate its ability to provide additional protection of your information. For residents of California, we are required in some circumstances to disclose or provide notice in the event that certain secure databases are the subject of third party invasion. We may do so when required, by either sending an e-mail notification to affected subjects, notifying major statewide media of the invasion, or taking other appropriate measures.

Protecting the privacy of the very young is especially important. For that reason, we never collect or maintain information at our site from those we actually know are under the age of thirteen (13), nor does The Peaceful Pack, Inc. target its website to children under thirteen (13). The Peaceful Pack, Inc. encourages parents and guardians to spend time online with their children and to participate with them in the various interactive activities and downloadable projects that may be available to them on our site.

Cookies

Our website uses "cookie" technology. "Cookies" are encrypted strings of text that a website stores on a user's computer. Our website requires the use of a cookie throughout the online request and fulfillment process. Without cookies we will not be able to keep information you enter on multiple pages together. Cookies also enable us to customize our website and offerings to your needs and provide you with a better online experience with The Peaceful Pack, Inc.. In addition, cookies are used to:

Pixel Tags

The Peaceful Pack, Inc. and any third party service providers it may employ use pixel tags (also known as "clear gifs", "beacon gifs", etc.). Pixel tags are not visible to the user of the site and consist of a few lines of computer coding delivered with the web page. Pixel tags are not used to collect any personally identifiable information about you. The Peaceful Pack, Inc. and our e-mail service provider use pixel tags to:

o Track customer response to The Peaceful Pack, Inc. advertisements and site content;
o Determine your ability to receive HTML-based e-mail messages. Our e-mail service provider includes a pixel tag, which they refer to as a "coded sensor", in all of the HTML-based messages sent on our behalf. The sensor activates when the e-mail message is opened and flags the e-mail address of the user as one that is capable of receiving HTML-based e-mail messages. This capability helps our service provider to send the e-mail in a format you can read. The sensor does not collect or use any other information. If you cannot receive HTML, you will not receive a functioning sensor;
o Know how many users open an e-mail and allow our service provider to compile aggregated statistics about an e-mail campaign for us; and
o Allow us to better target interactive advertising, enhance customer support and site usability, and provide offers and promotions that we believe would be of interest to you.

E-Mails about Special Offers and Promotions and Opt-Out

It is our intention to only send you e-mail communications that will be useful to you and that you want to receive. When you create a personal account or provide us with your email address, we will periodically contact you via e-mail and provide information about special events, news, and other related information that may be of interest to you.

These communications will relate to The Peaceful Pack, Inc., reputable third parties with whom The Peaceful Pack, Inc. has arranged special pricing or other benefits for products or services that we believe would be of interest to you. Our service provider is prohibited from using your e-mail address for any purpose other than to send The Peaceful Pack, Inc. related e-mail. The Peaceful Pack, Inc. will attempt to provide a choice to opt-out of future e-mails by following the instructions provided in the e-mail.
