Information collected from children under age 13.
TYPES OF INFORMATION THAT MAY BE COLLECTED.
The Personal Information collected will vary depending on the nature of your interactions with our Digital Services and your specific requests, but it may include your name, email address, mailing address, phone number, or other information that can be used to identify you personally. If you are applying to become a Franchisee, we will need to collect significantly more detailed information from you, including financial information.
We and our Franchisees do not have access to financial account data in unencrypted form through our Digital Services. Rather, we use third party service providers to process all payment transactions for our Digital Services (whether the payment is by credit card, PayPal, or otherwise). Although these third-party processors will notify us if your payment has cleared, and may submit some of your Personal Information to us, they will not provide your credit card or other payment account information to us, and the third party will be solely responsible for any issues that may arise with your payment transaction.
If you provide Personal Information through our Digital Services, a profile will be created for you (and your dog, if applicable) in our database. If a profile is created, we may combine information we or our Franchisees receive from you or about you from various sources (including your transactions at our Franchisee camp locations, online or offline) in your profile. If you register for an account through our Digital Services, complete a doggie daycare reservation, or submit a request for services we or our Franchisees may collect your name, email address, phone number, and other information, and we and our Franchisees will have access to such Personal Information within our shared database.
If you apply for a job with Camp Bow Wow or one of the Franchisees, you may provide us or the Franchisee with Personal Information such as your name, address, email, phone number, background, criminal record, or other information. Any information provided in a job application will be managed in accordance with applicable laws and regulations.
HOW IS INFORMATION COLLECTED?
Information may be collected in several different ways through our Digital Services, including but not limited to those described below:
Information You Voluntarily Provide
In most cases we will only obtain Personal Information through our Digital Services if you voluntarily provide it to us, for example, if you create an account through our Digital Services or with one of our camp locations, subscribe to our emails, enter a promotion, or request information from us or a Franchisee. We also automatically collect certain anonymous information, such as your browser settings and click-stream data, when you use our Digital Services. In some cases, we may combine Personal Information with anonymous data in order to create aggregate information about groups of individuals who use our Digital Services.
IP Addresses, Click-stream Data, App Usage and Device Information
We may collect IP addresses, click-stream data, App-usage details, length of session, and other information related to your use of our Digital Services for purposes of system administration, to improve the Digital Services, to report aggregate information to potential business partners or sponsors, and for other internal uses related to the Digital Services. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you access the Internet. When you request pages from the Site, our computers log your IP address. Click-stream data is information collected when you visit different pages on our Digital Services. Click-stream data may include information such as the page served, the time, the source of the request, the type of browser, the preceding page view, and other non-personal information. App-usage details are automatically collected when you use an App, including how you interact with the App and which sections you visit. We may also collect information about your mobile device and internet connection, including the device’s unique identifier, operating system, and browser type. This data helps us analyze how visitors arrive at the Digital Services, what type of content is most popular, and other information about usage of our Digital Services.
Information about Third-Party Cookies
In addition to the cookies CBW delivers to your computer or mobile device through this Site, certain third parties may deliver cookies to you for a variety of reasons. For example, we use Google Analytics, a web analytics tool that helps us understand how visitors engage with our Sites. To learn more about Google Analytics, click here.
Other third parties may deliver cookies to your computer or mobile device for the purpose of tracking your online behaviors across non-affiliated websites and delivering targeted advertisements either on this Site or on other websites.
You have choices about the collection of information by third parties on our Sites. For example, if you don’t want information about your visit to this Site sent to Google Analytics, you may download an Opt-out Browser Add-on by clicking here. Please note that the Add-on does not prevent information from being sent to CBW. In addition, if you would like to opt out of having participating entities collect your online behavior for advertising purposes when you are browsing our websites, click here for a “Website Opt Out.” You will be directed to an industry-developed website that allows you to choose whether each listed entity may collect and use data for interest-based advertising purposes. It may be that some of the third parties that collect interest-based information on this Site do not participate in the Website Opt Out, in which case the best way to avoid third party tracking of your online behaviors may be through your browser settings and deletion of cookies.
The Website Opt Out described above works only on websites. To opt out of having participating entities track your behaviors for advertising purposes when you are using our mobile apps, download and use the Digital Advertising Alliance’s “App Choices” app. As with the Website Opt Out, the “Mobile App Opt Out” prevents tracking only by participating entities.
Please note that the Website Opt Out and Mobile App Opt Out are device specific. If you wish to opt-out from having interest-based information collected by participating entities across all devices, you need take the steps outlined above from each device.
HOW DO WE USE THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT?
We internally use information about our visitors and customers to improve our service offerings, for our marketing and promotional efforts, to statistically analyze Digital Service usage, to improve our content and service offerings, and to customize the content and layout of the Digital Services. We believe these uses allow us to improve the Digital Services and provide better service to our customers. We or our Franchisees may use your email address and mailing address or phone number, to contact you regarding a reservation or inquiry you have made using our Digital Services, regarding issues with a transaction, satisfaction with the Digital Services and/or our products and services and to provide further information regarding additional events, products and/or services we believe would interest the customer. By creating an account on one of our Sites or Apps, you consent to receiving marketing emails and SMS messages from us. You may opt out of these messages at any time, as provided below. By opting out of any such messages, you may still receive messages regarding any ongoing transactions or future reservations and transactions. We may use information in the file we maintain about a customer to resolve disputes and troubleshoot problems.
TO WHOM MAY THE INFORMATION BE DISCLOSED?
Information we collect may be disclosed to a variety of parties, depending upon the purpose for which the information was provided. In addition, in many circumstances you may provide Personal Information directly to third parties (such as the Franchisees or third-party service providers who process payment transactions on our behalf), which may share certain information with us. In order to process your requests, we may also provide your Personal Information to service providers or other companies who work on our behalf in order, for example, to process a payment transaction you have initiated.
We may access or use your information, and we may share such information with our current or future affiliated and related companies, Franchisees, or carefully selected third parties, to provide you with offers, information, promotions or marketing communications in which we think you may be interested. You may opt-out of having your information shared or used for marketing purposes by following the instructions below under “What choices do I have about my information?”
WHAT CHOICES DO I HAVE ABOUT MY INFORMATION?
At any time, you may opt-out of having your Information provided to third parties (other than Franchisees) for marketing or other commercial purposes, and opt-out of other communications from us. You can unsubscribe from email newsletters or similar communications by clicking on the unsubscribe link in every email and you may opt out of text messages by replying STOP to any marketing messages you receive from us. You may opt-out of all Personal Information sharing with third parties for marketing purposes by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org or by sending a letter to us at the address below. If you wish to opt-out of communications from a specific camp location, please contact that location/Franchisee directly via the email links or other contact information on that location’s specific Site. Please note that we do not currently have a centralized opt-out mechanism applicable to all of our Franchisees and our various businesses, services and locations, so you will need to contact specific Franchisees directly.
To obtain a list of the Personal Information that Camp Bow Wow holds about you, or for residents of California (as required by California law) to receive a list of the names and addresses of all third parties that received your Personal Information from Camp Bow Wow for direct marketing purposes during the preceding calendar year, please send a written request for this information, including your name, address, email address and phone number, with your signature, to us at the address below.

Any disclosures we provide will only cover the 12-month period preceding the verifiable consumer request's receipt.

- We may deny a request from an authorized agent on your behalf if the authorized agent does not submit proof that he, she, or it has been authorized by you to act on your behalf if we request such proof, as permitted by the CCPA.
- Even if you use an authorized agent to exercise your rights under the CCPA on your behalf, pursuant to the CCPA we may still require that you verify your own identity directly to us. This provision does not apply if you have provided with a power of attorney under California Probate Code sections 4000 to 4465.
