We may disclose information about you or your use of the Services with the types of recipients described below.
5.2 Service Providers/Agents
We employ other companies and people to perform tasks or services on our behalf and need to share information with them so they can complete their work. For example: we may use a payment processing company to receive or deliver payments; or we may use a cloud services provider to store data.
5.4 Other Users
Information about merchants, pickup locations and users (i.e. purchasers) is shared in certain contexts. For example, merchant store information is made available to users and user reviews of a store are made available to merchants and other users. Also, when users complete a purchase using the Services, we normally share information needed to fulfill the purchase, such as shipping address and phone number, with the merchant (i.e. seller) or its service provider(s), such as a shipping company. Information shared with sellers and their service providers is subject to their own policies.
Certain user profile information, including your name, photo, location, items on your Puppylist (unless you make the Puppylist private), reviews you have written (including any photo/video you upload with such reviews), and the list of people you follow or that follow you, may be displayed to other users to facilitate user interaction within the Services. Your user name may also be displayed to other users if and when you send messages or comments or upload images or videos through the Services and other users can contact you through messages and comments. Use caution and good judgment before sharing personal information in public areas of the Services.
We may allow advertisers, including merchants ("Advertisers"), to choose groups of users to see their listings, advertisements or promotional offers based on common features of a group of users, such as similar usage patterns or similar geographic locations. For example, if you buy products related to wine, we may show you an offer for a service that sells wine or similar products. If an advertiser asks us to show an ad to a certain audience or audience segment and you respond to that ad, the advertiser may conclude that you fit the description of the audience they were trying to reach.
5.6 Business Transfers
We may choose to buy or sell assets and may share or transfer user information (including personal information) in connection with the evaluation of and entry into such transactions. Also, if we (or our assets) are acquired, or if we go out of business, enter bankruptcy, or go through some other change of control, user information could be one of the assets transferred to or acquired by a third-party.

If you access your account via a third-party site or service, such as Facebook, you may have additional or different sign-on protections via that third-party site or service. We recommend that you choose an appropriate password, safeguard your password and limit access to the devices on which you access your account.

8.3 Nevada Residents
Under Nevada law, certain Nevada consumers may opt out of the sale of "personally identifiable information" for monetary consideration to a person for that person to license or sell such information to additional persons. "Personally identifiable information" includes first and last name, address, email address, phone number, Social Security Number, or an identifier that allows a specific person to be contacted either physically or online.
We do not engage in such activity; however, if you are a Nevada resident who has purchased or leased goods or services from us, you may submit a request to opt out of any potential future sales under Nevada law by emailing privacy@Puppy.com. Please note we will take reasonable steps to verify your identity and the authenticity of the request. Once verified, we will maintain your request in the event our practices change.
We do not knowingly collect or solicit "personal information" (as defined by the U.S. Children's Online Privacy Protection Act) from anyone under the age of 13. If you are under 13, please do not attempt to register for the Services or send any personal information about yourself to us. If we learn that we have collected personal information from a child under age 13, we will delete that information. If you believe that a child under 13 may have provided us personal information, please contact us at privacy@JoinPuppy.com.
For residents of the EU/EEA where processing of personal data is based on consent, we will not knowingly engage in that processing for users under the age of consent established by applicable member or data protection law. If we learn that we are engaged in that processing with such users, we will halt such processing and will take reasonable measures to promptly remove applicable information from our records.
If you are 13 or older, but have not reached your country's age of majority (i.e. able to enter a contract), you should use the Services with permission from your parent(s) or guardian(s).
Your browser may offer you a "Do Not Track" option, which allows you to signal to operators of websites and web applications and services (including tailored advertising services) that you do not want your online activities tracked over time and across different websites. Our Services do not support Do Not Track requests at this time, which means that we collect information about your online activity both while you are using the Services and after you leave our Services.
