The Center for Canine Behavior Studies (“we” or “our” or “us”) is owned and operated by The Simon Foundation, Inc., a non-profit Corporation that also operates Connecticut’s largest no-kill animal shelter. By accessing, browsing, or otherwise using its (this) website, you acknowledge and consent to our collection and use of any information you knowingly or unknowingly provide in accordance with the terms and conditions set forth below.
Information Collection & Use
The website is intended for the general public, and we expect it to be used by both adults and children. We will not, however, knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of 13. If you are under the age of 13, you should not and may not provide any personal information to us through or on the Website.
Your continued anonymity is of the utmost importance to us. When you registered, you provided an email address; and unless you unsubscribe, we will use that address list to send you our Newsletter and other communications that we believe will be of interest to you, such as those containing information relating to our studies, programs, grants, conferences, campaigns, and other information that pertains to our activities or more broadly to the status and operations of the Center.
There may be times when we will use a third-party company to assist in the management and distribution of our e-newsletters and similar mailings. However, we WILL NOT share your email or any other personally identifiable information with any other third party without notification.
Information Sharing and Disclosure
As is true of most websites, we gather certain information automatically and store it in cookies and log files. This information includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data. We use this information, which does not identify individual users, to analyze trends, to administer the website, to track users’ movements around the website and to gather demographic information about our users. We do not link this automatically-collected data to your registered email or any other personally identifiable information.
Links to Other Websites
The Website contains links to other websites that are not owned or controlled by us. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the privacy practices of such other websites. We encourage you to be aware when you leave our website and to read the privacy statements of each and every website that collects personally identifiable information.
Security of the Internet
We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. However, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage is 100% secure. Therefore, while we strive to protect your registered email address, and any personally identifiable information we have on you and or your dog, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
In the event we go through a business transition, such as a merger, acquisition by another company, or sale of all or a portion of its assets, your registered email and any personally identifiable information we have on you and or your dog will likely be among the assets transferred. You will be notified via e-mail of any such change in ownership or control.
