WITH WHOM DO WE SHARE YOUR INFORMATION?
We may release personal information if we believe in good faith that: the law or legal process requires it; we have received a valid administrative request from a law enforcement agency; or such release is necessary to protect the rights, property or safety of Shopify and/or V.I.P. Very important puppies, or any of our respective affiliates, business partners, customers or others.
We may share non-personal information with our marketing partners, advertisers and others from time to time. Examples of such non-personal information include the number of users who visited this Web site during a specific time period or purchased a specific product through this Web site. This information generally is shared in an aggregated form.
WHAT INFORMATION ABOUT ME IS COLLECTED AND STORED?
We collect and store information that you enter into this Web site or that you provide to our Customer Service Department. For example, when you open an account or place an order, we collect and store some or all of the following information that you provide: name, billing address, shipping address, email address, telephone number, credit card number and expiration date. This information is used to provide the products and services that you have ordered or requested, to process and ship orders, to send order and shipping confirmations and to provide customer service. This information also may be used to contact you about sales, special offers and new site features, unless you have opted not to receive promotional communications in connection with this Web site.
We collect and store certain other information automatically whenever you interact with this Web site. For example, we collect your IP address, browser information and reference site domain name every time you visit this Web site. We also collect information regarding customer traffic patterns and site usage. This information is used to analyze and improve this Web site and to provide our customers with a fulfilling shopping experience.
- Opting Out. You can set your browser to not accept cookies, but this may limit your ability to use the Services. We currently don’t respond to DNT:1 signals from browsers visiting our Services. You can also opt out of receiving interest-based ads from certain ad networks.
- Device Identifiers. We use device identifiers on Shopify web and mobile applications to track, analyze and improve the performance of the Services and our ads.
- Third Party Tags. We use and manage third party tags on the website and associated domains of www.shopify.com and on Shopify web and mobile applications. Third party tags may take the form of pixels or tracking snippets. We use pixels to learn how you interact with our site pages and emails, and this information helps us and our ad partners provide you with a more tailored experience. We use tracking snippets to capture data from your browser, make requests to a third party partner or set cookies on your device to store data. For example, if you see a Shopify ad on a social media platform and choose to use Shopify, we may use a tag to reduce the number of Shopify ads you see on that platform. We use Google Tag Managerto manage our third party tag usage. This may cause other tags to be activated which may, for their part, collect data and set cookies under certain circumstances. Google Tag Manager does not store this data.
COOKIES POLICY CHANGES
CUSTOM AUDIENCE PIXEL
We also utilize Custom Audience Pixel (Custom Audience from Your Website). A Custom audience pixel is a tiny piece of Java script code that we have incorporated into each of our web pages. This piece of code provides a series of functions for transmitting application-specific events and user-defined data to Facebook. We use custom audience pixels to record information about the way visitors use our website. For this reason, each of our web pages contains a custom audience pixel. This pixel records information about the user's browser session, which it sends to Facebook, along with a hashed version of the Facebook ID and the URL viewed. Every Facebook user has a unique, device-independent Facebook ID that allows us to address and recognize users across a range of devices using the Facebook social network, so that we can address our visitors for commercial purposes using Facebook ads. The user information will be deleted after 180 days, until the user visits our website again. "Custom Audience from Your Website" respects your privacy. Thus, no personal information about individual visitors to the website will be disclosed to V.I.P. Very important puppies and V.I.P. Very important puppies can only advertise to website customer target groups in a targeted way once the customer target group has reached a critical mass. This makes it impossible for V.I.P. Very important puppies to discover the identity of individual visitors.
