Please note that for security and performance reasons, such content may need to be accessed by certain Dogly personnel from time to time.
If you are a brand, ambassadog, shelter or artist, Dogly may require additional information to provide the service, such as a shop name, billing and payment information (including billing address, telephone number, credit card information), a telephone number, and/or a physical postal address. We may store credit card information and use it for both billing and payment purposes.

Certain products or services on Dogly may require you to complete an application; information you submit through the application processes will not be displayed publicly and will only be used internally by Dogly, unless otherwise specified.
We use the information that we gather from you in a number of ways. For example, if you purchase an item, we’ll share your shipping information with the brand you purchased from; we use data analytics and work with certain third-party service providers for targeted online and offline marketing; and of course, we use your email address to communicate with you. We also partner with service providers and other third parties that collect, use, promote, and analyze information about Dogly members and visitors.
Some members or visitors may connect to Dogly or register a Dogly account using an external third-party application, such as Facebook. Dogly may receive data from those connected third-party applications. Connecting your Dogly account to third-party applications or services is optional, and when you connect your account to an external app, you will be granting Dogly permission to receive information from the third-party applications. You can also choose to share some of your activity on Dogly on certain social media networks which are connected to your Dogly account.
On occasion, Dogly will contact you. Primarily, these messages are delivered by email or by push notifications, and every account is required to keep a valid email address on file to receive messages. Some messages from Dogly are service-related and required for members. Examples of service-related messages include an email address confirmation/welcome email when you register your account, notification of an order, and correspondence with Dogly’s support team. You may not opt out of receiving service-related messages from Dogly, unless you close your account.

Dogly offers optional email newsletters. When you register for an account, or choose to subscribe to a newsletter, you will receive newsletters from us. Newsletters are available to both members and non-members.
As part of the buying and selling process, Dogly will facilitate the sharing of information between the two members involved in the transaction, such as the other Dogly’s member's email address, shipping address, and payment information.

You have a limited license to use that information only for Dogly-related communications or for Dogly-facilitated transactions.

This includes applicable data protection and privacy laws which govern the ways in which you can use another Dogly member’s information.
Dogly is affiliated with a variety of businesses and works closely with them.

When an affiliated business is associated with your transaction, we may share information related to the transaction with that affiliated business to facilitate your transaction.

These tools collect information sent by your device or our Service, including the web pages you visit, add-ons, and other information that assists us in improving the Service. We collect and use this analytics information with analytics information from other Users in the aggregate so that it cannot reasonably be used to identify any particular individual User.

The information allows for more accurate reporting and improvement of the Site and its services.
When you use a mobile device to access our Service, we may access, collect, monitor, store on your device, and/or remotely store one or more "device identifiers." Device identifiers are small data files or similar data structures stored on or associated with your mobile device, which uniquely identify your mobile device. A device identifier may be data stored in connection with the device hardware, data stored in connection with the device's operating system or other software, or data sent to the device by Dogly. A device identifier may deliver information to us or to a third party partner about how you browse and use the Site and may help us or others provide reports or personalized content and ads. Some features of the Site may not function properly if use or availability of device identifiers is impaired or disabled.
