c. We Collect Information from Other Sources: We may obtain information about you from outside sources. For example, we may obtain commercially available information about you from third parties or purchase e-mail lists from third parties for advertising and marketing purposes.

Use of Cookies

Please refer to our Cookie Policy for information and how to manage your choices with cookies used on our website.

Use of Web Beacons, Clear-GIFs, Pixel Tags and JavaScript

We also may use “pixel tags” (also called “action pixels,” “web beacons” or “clear gifs”) and/or JavaScript plug-ins, placed on our Sites and in our emails to you. These web beacons and plug-ins are small graphic images (typically that you cannot see) or code on a website or in an email message which are used for such things as recording webpages and advertisements clicked-on by a user, or for tracking the performance of email marketing campaigns. These devices help us analyze our users’ online behavior and measure the effectiveness of our website and our marketing. We may also work with third-party service providers that help us track, collect, and analyze this information. Third-party entities with whom we have agreements may place these devices on the website and/or in emails to use information obtained from them such as pages viewed, items purchased, emails opened and items upon which you may click in emails. These third-party providers may also place cookies onto your computer. Those third-party cookies may enable us to obtain aggregate demographic information and user statistics about you and your preferences from these third-party sources as well as our information we have about you.

Device Identifiers

A “device identifier” is a mechanism whereby we may automatically collect an IP address, mobile advertising identifier or other unique user identifier information for the computer, mobile or other device being used to access the Sites or third-party websites to which we may link for advertising purposes. A device identifier attaches a number that is automatically assigned to your computer or device that identifies it, similar to a cookie. We may use the device identifier to administer the Sites, help diagnose problems, analyze trends, track a user on the Sites, identify a user shipping cart or purchase preferences, deliver advertising or obtain general demographic data. Most computers and mobile devices will allow you to turn off, block or delete device identifiers.

Server Logs

A web “server log” is a record of activity created by a computer that delivers certain webpages to your browser. Certain activities that you perform on our Sites may record information in server logs. For example, if you enter a search term into a search box located on the Sites, the server log may record the search term, the link you clicked on to bring you to our Sites and/or information about your browser, such as your IP address and the cookies set on your browser.

Search Queries on Our Sites

We may provide you with options to search for information on the Sites. If you enter information in a search query box, we may store that information and we may aggregate that information with other information we may have about the browser and/or IP address from which the search query originated.

Social Media Platforms

We may link to certain Company social media platforms on Facebook®, Twitter®, Instagram®, Google+®, Pinterest®, BeReal or other platforms. When you engage with our content at or through these social media platforms, you may be asked to share certain information about these interactions with us. Please review the privacy policies/notices and privacy settings with each such social media platform you use so you understand how this data and information may be used, and to choose your options for the sharing of such data and information.

Your Mobile Device and Geo-Location Data

We may access certain information from the mobile device on which you downloaded and use the App, including your mobile device’s contacts, microphone, camera, calendar, reminders, sensors, SMS messages, social media accounts and storage limits and other features you make accessible. This information may also include specific information about your mobile device itself, such as the mobile device ID number, model, manufacturer, version of operating system, phone number, country, location and any other data you choose to provide. If you wish to change our access or permissions with respect to your mobile device, you may do so in your mobile device’s settings.

We may also request permission to access and track certain location-based information from your mobile device, either continuously or just while you are using the App to provide location-based services. If you wish to change our access or permissions with respect to such geo-location data on your mobile device, you may do so in your mobile device’s settings.

Push Notifications

We may request to send you push notifications (important messages sent to you even if the App is not open) regarding your account or the App. If you wish to opt-out from receiving these types of communications, you may turn them off on your device’s settings.

Communications between You and Other Users or Cat Sitters

The Sites may allow, directly or by providing contact information, messaging and communication between users, as well as between users and Cat Sitters. Users will not have access to emails, phone numbers, names or other personal information of other users except as provided by one user to another (i.e., a Cat Sitter providing information to a Cat Owner and vice versa) or otherwise in connection with a booking. Each user is responsible for all personal information shared with another user or Cat Sitter, and such information, if provided by or through the Sites, will also be provided to the Company and subject to this Privacy Policy.

If the Company or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that the Company goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of the Company may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this Privacy Policy.



If you do not consent to the way in which we may use your personal information, please do not submit any personal information to us. Please note that if you do not provide us with certain personal information the Company may be unable to provide you with its services, or those services may not be as good as they otherwise could be.

You may opt out of our various marketing communications as follows:

E-mail Communications: click the unsubscribe link located in our emails.

Third-Party Sharing: e-mail us at with the words “THIRD-PARTY E-MAIL REMOVAL” in the subject line.

We recognize the importance of children's safety and privacy. The Sites are not designed to attract children and is not intended for use by any children under the age of 18. We do not request, or knowingly collect, any personally identifiable information from children under the age of 18.



We believe in providing a safe and secure experience for all of our online visitors. To that end, we have implemented security measures to protect the information collected from you. We maintain reasonable physical and electronic safeguards designed to limit unauthorized access to your personally identifiable information, and to protect you against the criminal misuse of that information.

While we use the foregoing security measures to protect your information, please note that no data transmitted over the Internet or stored and utilized for business purposes can be guaranteed to be completely secure. No security measures are perfect or impenetrable. We cannot guarantee that only authorized persons will view your information. We cannot ensure that information you share on the Sites will not become publicly available. You can reduce these risks by using common sense security practices such as choosing a strong password, using different passwords for different services, and using up to date antivirus software.

We will never send you unsolicited emails or contact you by phone requesting your account ID, password, credit or debit card information or national identification numbers.


Transfer and Location Information

The personal information we collect may be transferred to and stored in countries outside of the jurisdiction you are in. Some of our service providers will process your personal information outside of the European Union; these international transfers of your personal information are made pursuant to appropriate safeguards, such as standard data protection clauses adopted by the European Commission.

We will take reasonable steps to ensure that your personal information is treated securely and in accordance with applicable law and this privacy policy.



We prefer to keep your personal information accurate and up-to-date. If you would like to change your contact information, please update your account information by logging in to your account or send us an email at



We retain information for as long as necessary to provide the products and fulfill the transactions you have requested, or for other essential purposes such as complying with our legal obligations, resolving disputes, and enforcing our agreements. Because these needs can vary for different information types in the context of different products, actual retention periods can vary based on criteria such as user expectations or consent, the sensitivity of the information, the availability of automated controls that enable users to delete information, and our legal or contractual obligations.

The Company may also use third-party e-mail tracking technologies to monitor the success of e-mail campaigns it operates (for example, recording how many e-mails in a campaign were opened). If you do not want us to track emails we send you, some email services let you change your display to turn off HTML or disable download of images and exercising these rights should effectively disable our email tracking. In addition, you may also unsubscribe from our marketing emails as described in those emails.
