Hambright Animal Hospital, PLLC (“HAH”) is committed to protecting your privacy and developing technology that gives you the most powerful and safe online experience. This Statement of Privacy applies to the HAH website and governs data collection and usage. By using the HAH website, you consent to the data practices described in this statement.
Collection of Your Personal Information
HAH collects personally identifiable information, such as your e-mail address, name, home or work address or telephone number. This information is collected on an opt-in basis only, through various web forms throughout the site. HAH also collects anonymous demographic information, which is not unique to you, such as your ZIP code, age, gender, preferences, interests, and favorites.
There is also information about your computer hardware and software that is automatically collected by HAH. This information can include, but is not limited to: your IP address, geographical location, browser type, domain names, access times, and referring website addresses. This information is used by HAH for the operation of the service, to maintain quality of the service, and to provide general statistics regarding use of the HAH website.
HAH encourages you to review the privacy statements of websites you choose to visit from HAH so that you can understand how those websites collect, use, and share your information. HAH is not responsible for the privacy statements or other content on websites outside of the HAH and the HAH family of websites.
Use of Your Personal Information
HAH collects and uses your personal information to operate the HAH website and deliver the services you have requested. HAH also uses your personally identifiable information to inform you of other products or services available from HAH and its affiliates. HAH may also contact you via surveys to conduct research about your opinion of current services or of potential new services that may be offered.
HAH does not sell, rent, or lease its customer lists to third parties. HAH may, from time to time, contact you on behalf of external business partners about a particular offering that may be of interest to you. In those cases, your unique personally identifiable information (e-mail, name, address, telephone number) is not transferred to the third party. In addition, HAH may share data with trusted partners to help us perform statistical analysis, send you email or postal mail, provide customer support, or arrange for deliveries. All such third parties are prohibited from using your personal information except to provide these services to HAH, and they are required to maintain the confidentiality of your information.
HAH does not use or disclose sensitive personal information, such as race, religion, or political affiliations, without your explicit consent.
HAH keeps track of the websites and pages our customers visit within HAH, in order to determine what HAH services are the most popular. This data is used to deliver customized content and advertising within HAH to customers whose behavior indicates that they are interested in a particular subject area.
HAH websites will disclose your personal information, without notice, only if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on HAH or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of HAH; and (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of HAH or the public.
The HAH website uses “cookies” to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a Web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.
One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize HAH pages or register with HAH site or services, a cookie helps HAH to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same HAH website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the HAH features that you customized.
You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the HAH services or websites you visit.
Security of Your Personal Information
HAH secures your personal information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. HAH secures the personally identifiable information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. When personal information (such as a credit card number) is transmitted to other websites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.
Changes to This Statement
HAH will occasionally update this Statement of Privacy to reflect company and customer feedback. HAH encourages you to periodically review this Statement to be informed of how HAH is protecting your information.
HAH welcomes your comments regarding this Statement of Privacy. Please contact HAH at: 11725 Hambright Road, Huntersville, NC 28078.
