Collection and Methods of Information Gathering
Every computer connected to the Internet is assigned a domain name and an Internet Protocol (IP) address. When a visitor accesses any webpage within the Emergency Veterinary Care Centers network, our web servers automatically identify the visitor's domain name and IP address. This information is used for traffic analysis and to address any misuse of our network or non-compliance with the law. Please refer to the section titled "Disclosure of Collected Information to Third Parties" for further details.
Emergency Veterinary Care Centers may occasionally send a small data file, known as a "cookie," to your computer. A cookie is stored on your computer's hard drive and is transmitted from a web server to your internet browser. It cannot read data from your hard disk or access cookies from other websites. Cookies help us identify the areas of the Emergency Veterinary Care Centers network that you have visited, making it easier for you to access those pages during subsequent visits. Additionally, cookies may be used to track the number of times you have encountered an advertisement. This information enables us to personalize content, banners, and promotions displayed on our site. You have the option to accept or decline these cookies by modifying your browser settings.

Certain services provided by Emergency Veterinary Care Centers require user registration. The contact information provided during registration may be used to send you notifications about Emergency Veterinary Care Centers products and services via email and/or postal mail. Additionally, we may internally use your IP address for various purposes. If we request your email or mailing address for surveys or additional services, we will clearly state the purpose before seeking this information. We adhere to a strict "No-Spam" policy and do not sell, rent, or share your email address with any third parties without your consent, except as permitted by this policy.
When making a purchase from an Emergency Veterinary Care Centers media property, we require your name, address, email address, credit card number, and expiration date. This information is used to process and fulfill your order, as well as to provide updates on your order status. We do not share or sell your credit card details or other personal information with any third parties. Some Emergency Veterinary Care Centers properties utilize a secure shopping cart feature with SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encryption, ensuring the confidentiality of your information during transmission. However, certain properties may not employ SSL encryption, thus lacking a secure coded transfer method.
