Additional information

We do not collect any further personal identifiable information about you, nor will we ask for your credit card or bank account information as we use a service to do that for us and we do not have visibility in any way to that information.

How we protect your data

We employ multi-factor authentication (MFA) for every service used in conjunction with your information, including the administration of this website except where not provided by the service.  The only known service not employing MFA is PetLink.  For that site, we use a randomized password that is not shared with any other service and change the password upon notification of a breach.

If we are notified through one of our third parties of a breach that contains your information, we will subsequently notify you that your data may have been accessed by an unauthorized party.  We will also notify the third party service provider that we hold information of our customer base and they will take appropriate action according to their procedures.

What third parties we receive data from

We receive information from ads posted on AKC Marketplace and through our facebook page that is directed to us by those platforms.

What automated decision making and/or profiling we do with user data

We do not perform any automated profiling.
