Pitbulls.org strives to offer its visitors the many advantages of Internet
technology and to provide an interactive and personalized experience. We may
use Personally Identifiable Information (your name, e-mail address, street
never sell, barter, or rent your email address to any unauthorized third party.
How we gather information from users
How we collect and store information depends on the page you are visiting, the
activities in which you elect to participate and the services provided. For
example, you may be asked to provide information when you register for access
to certain portions of our site or request certain features, such as newsletters or
when you make a purchase. You may provide information when you participate
in sweepstakes and contests, message boards and chat rooms, and other
interactive areas of our site. Like most Web sites, Pitbulls.org also collects
information automatically and through the use of electronic tools that may be
transparent to our visitors. For example, we may log the name of your Internet
Service Provider or use cookie technology to recognize you and hold information
from your visit. Among other things, the cookie may store your user name and
password, sparing you from having to re-enter that information each time you
visit, or may control the number of times you encounter a particular
advertisement while visiting our site. As we adopt additional technology, we may
also gather information through other means. In certain cases, you can choose
not to provide us with information, for example by setting your browser to refuse
to accept cookies, but if you do you may be unable to access certain portions of
the site or may be asked to re-enter your user name and password, and we may
not be able to customize the site’s features according to your preferences.
What we do with the information we collect
Like other Web publishers, we collect information to enhance your visit and
deliver more individualized content and advertising. We respect your privacy and
do not share your information with anyone.
Aggregated Information (information that does not personally identify you) may
be used in many ways. For example, we may combine information about your
usage patterns with similar information obtained from other users to help
enhance our site and services (e.g., to learn which pages are visited most or
what features are most attractive). Aggregated Information may occasionally be
shared with our advertisers and business partners. Again, this information does
not include any Personally Identifiable Information about you or allow anyone to
identify you individually.
We may use Personally Identifiable Information collected on Pitbulls.org to
communicate with you about your registration and customization preferences;
Pitbulls.org and other topics we think you might find of interest.
Personally Identifiable Information collected by Pitbulls.org may also be
used for other purposes, including but not limited to site administration,
troubleshooting, processing of ecommerce transactions, administration of
sweepstakes and contests, and other communications with you. Certain third
parties who provide technical support for the operation of our site (our Web
hosting service for example) may access such information. We will use your
information only as permitted by law. In addition, from time to time as we
continue to develop our business, we may sell, buy, merge or partner with other
companies or businesses. In such transactions, user information may be among
the transferred assets. We may also disclose your information in response to a
court order, at other times when we believe we are reasonably required to do so
by law, in connection with the collection of amounts you may owe to us, and/or to
law enforcement authorities whenever we deem it appropriate or necessary.
Please note we may not provide you with notice prior to disclosure in such cases.

by third parties and may include cookies that enable the advertiser to determine
whether you have seen a particular advertisement before. Other features
available on our site may offer services operated by third parties and may use
cookies or other technology to gather information. Pitbulls.org does not
control the use of this technology by third parties or the resulting information, and
is not responsible for any actions or policies of such third parties.
