When you interact with us through the Services, we may collect Personal Data and other information from you, as further described below:
Livestock Information: We collect data on livestock you select for tagging and monitoring through the Services, including information on health and animal history, when you voluntarily install our DoggTag and DoggBone products in your herd and/or subscribe to the Services. This data pertaining to individual animals is stored for your own use and HerdDogg may access and use this information in connection with providing you the Services. Furthermore, HerdDogg may assemble and share information related to your herd but only on an aggregated and anonymous basis, without revealing your herd or livestock as being the source of a particular information.
Non-Identifiable Data: When you interact with HerdDogg through the Services, we receive and store certain personally non-identifiable information. Such information, which is collected passively using various technologies, cannot presently be used to specifically identify you. HerdDogg may store such information itself or such information may be included in databases owned and maintained by HerdDogg affiliates, agents or service providers. The Services may use such information and pool it with other information to track, for example, the total number of users of our Services and the domain names of our users’ Internet service providers. It is important to note that no Personal Data is available or used in this process.
Aggregated Personal Data: In an ongoing effort to better understand and serve the users of the Services, HerdDogg often conducts research on its customer demographics, interests and behavior based on the Personal Data and other information provided to us. This research may be compiled and analyzed on an aggregate basis, and HerdDogg may share this aggregate data with its affiliates, agents and business partners. This aggregate information does not identify you personally. HerdDogg may also disclose aggregated user statistics in order to describe our services to current and prospective business partners, and to other third parties for other lawful purposes.
Location Information: Our Service may collect and use your location information (for example, by using the GPS on your mobile device) to provide certain functionality of our Service. If you choose to enable our location features, your location information may be publicly displayed within the Service. Please keep in mind that other users can see this information about you, and they may use it or disclose it to other individuals or entities outside of our control and without your knowledge. Your location information may be subject to abuse, misuse, and monitoring by others, so please be careful if you choose to enable location functionality. We may also use your location information in an aggregate way, as described above in the “Aggregated Personal Data” section.
HerdDogg is not in the business of selling your information. We consider this information to be a vital part of our relationship with you. There are, however, certain circumstances in which we may share your Personal Data with certain third parties without further notice to you, as set forth below:
Business Transfers: As we develop our business, we might sell or buy businesses or assets. In the event of a corporate sale, merger, reorganization, dissolution or similar event, Personal Data may be part of the transferred assets.
Agents, Consultants and Related Third Parties: HerdDogg, like many businesses, sometimes hires other companies to perform certain business-related functions. Examples of such functions include mailing information, maintaining databases and processing payments. When we employ another entity to perform a function of this nature, we only provide them with the information that they need to perform their specific function.
