Pet Kept Secrets Privacy Policy


Pet Kept Secrets Inc. strives to keep everyone’s personal information their own. We in no way wish to attempt to violate anyone’s privacy. This is a summary of the use of information both personal and public and how it is used and displayed in relation to its use on Pet Kept Secrets.

  1. Your Personal Information

    Your personal information refers to the information that relates to you that is required to set-up an account. This means your name, address, email address, phone number, date of birth and gender. This information is used for the purpose of setting up an account and contacting the user in case of any issues. Pet Kept Secrets uses this information to verify that you are an actual person. This information is stored on a secure encrypted server. Pet Kept Secrets does not obtain this, or any other kind of information, for the viewing of third parties, not related to the operations and use of Petkeptsecrets.com. This means your personal information (excluding your first and last name, gender, city of residence and age in years) will not be viewable by anyone except for you and the administrators of Petkeptsecrets.com. Said administrators will only be able to view your personal information as it relates to the site, including but not limited to: scanning the site for explicit material and fraudulent activities, updating and cleaning up servers and removing old, deleted, blocked or revoked accounts. Your personal information (excluding your first and last name, gender, city of residence and age in years) will never be “public information” viewable by users on Petkeptsecrets.com or by any individual on the web trying to access or search for Petkeptsecrets.com or your profile. Your first and last name, gender, city of residence and age in years will be viewable on your profile for the purposes of searches by other users. We ask for your date of birth when you register so Petkeptsecrets.com can keep track of how old you are. We do not share your date of birth with anyone but your age is viewable by other users and individuals searching the web for Petkeptsecrets.com or your profile. When you register an account on Petkeptsecrets.com, we ask for your address so the website knows approximately where you live (i.e. your city and zip code) and to do a security check to make sure you are an actual person and not a robot entering in incorrect or junk data. We do not share your physical address with anyone, but your approximate location is viewable by other users and individuals searching the web for Petkeptsecrets.com or your profile. This way other users can find similar users to set-up “playdates,” become petmates with, share photos, videos and comments or chat with. This is the extent of the use of you personal information. Petkeptsecrets.com will not allow third party companies, people or organizations to view your personal information *unless required by law.* However, we may summarize users’ ages, genders and locations to sell advertising space on the site that is pertinent to our users. To remove your personal information from Petkeptsecrets.com, simply delete your profile. Once your profile is deleted you will no longer be able to fully access Petkeptsecrets.com and your information will be taken off the site viewed by the public and our users. However, any information about a user and/or their pet will remain on Petkeptsecrets.com’s servers and databases for a reasonable period of time for the purposes of maintaining the site.

  2. Your Pet's Personal Information

    Your pet’s personal information refers to the information that relates to your pet that is needed to set-up a profile. Since the profiles on Petkeptsecrets.com are based primarily on the pets, your pet’s information will be viewable by other users. This means that your pet’s name, breed, age, etc. will become viewable information on Petkeptsecrets.com. All of your pet’s information will be seen by other users who search for your pet’s profile on Petkeptsecrets.com or by individuals on the internet who search for petkeptsecrets.com or your profile. To remove your pet’s personal information from Petkeptsecrets.com, simply remove that pet or delete your profile. Once a pet is removed or your profile is deleted you will no longer be able to fully access Petkeptsecrets.com and no user will be able to view any of the information from your pet and/or your account. However, any information about a user and/or their pet will remain on Petkeptsecrets.com’s servers and databases for a reasonable period of time for the purposes of maintaining the site.

  3. Privately Viewable Information

    This refers to the information that is posted on Petkeptsecrets.com by its users. Privately viewable information is written text, pictures, videos and audio recordings that users put on the site Petkeptsecrets.com. This information is purposefully displayed for any user that has been linked to your account or has been linked to the account of another user that posts privately viewable information about you, your pet or your business. A user may be able to view your privately viewable information without being linked to your account in some way such as “sending or accepting” a friend/petmate request (setting-up a “playdate” or sending a message does not link your account with another user, it only allows them to send you a private message or an invite, that can only be accessed by you on your account). This means that anything that you post on your profile will be purposefully displayed for those users that you have chosen to link to your account. Although guests (not registered users) can access the Petkeptsecrets.com site, much of the functionality of the site is limited to them and it may be harder for them to see all privately viewable information. However, registered users will be able to see much of the privately viewable information if they are searching for it but it will not be purposefully displayed for them to view. Privately viewable information will be much easier to access by users who are linked to your account in some way. All information posted to a user or vendor’s “territory” will only be viewable by that individuals “petmates,” “sniffs” or “licks.” However, if another user posts information about you or your pet then all users linked to their account will be able to see that information about you and/or your pet as it is purposefully displayed for them. Any information posted by a user remains their property and they reserve the right to remove it from petkeptsecrets.com at anytime. Information that is removed by the user will no longer be able to be viewed on the website. However, any information removed from Petkeptsecrets.com by any user will remain on Petkeptsecrets.com’s servers and databases for a reasonable period of time for the purposes of maintaining the site.

  4. Publicly Viewable Information

    Publicly viewable information is information that is posted by users and vendors that is viewable by all guests of Petkeptsecrets.com and anyone on the internet that searches for Petkeptsecrets.com or the information provided by the user. This refers to blogs, rankings and reviews, any profile introductions or bios of users or pets and any business information listed by vendors such as business addresses, phone numbers, hours of operation, descriptions, pictures, employees, services and urls. In an effort to keep the privacy of some of our vendors who work from a home office, we do not require the street address of businesses or offer the ability to hide them from public view, but we do require and display the city and zip code for location purposes. Any information posted by a user remains their property and they reserve the right to remove it from petkeptsecrets.com at anytime. To remove your publicly viewable information from Petkeptsecrets.com, simply delete your profile or remove that information from your profile.
