Alpha Dog Systems is committed to protecting the privacy of our website visitors. This policy outlines what information we collect from visitors on our website and how we use that information.
Alpha Dog LLC ("Alpha Dog Systems") operates alphadogsystems.com and may operate other websites. It is Alpha Dog Systems' policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.
Like most website operators, Alpha Dog Systems collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Alpha Dog Systems' purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Alpha Dog Systems' visitors use its website. From time to time, Alpha Dog Systems may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Alpha Dog Systems also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on alphadogsystems.com blogs/sites. Alpha Dog Systems only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog/site where the comment was left.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to Alpha Dog Systems' websites choose to interact with Alpha Dog Systems in ways that require Alpha Dog Systems to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Alpha Dog Systems gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up at alphadogsystems.com to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Alpha Dog Systems are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Alpha Dog Systems collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor's interaction with Alpha Dog Systems. Alpha Dog Systems does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
Alpha Dog Systems may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. Alpha Dog Systems may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Alpha Dog Systems does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Alpha Dog Systems discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Alpha Dog Systems' behalf or to provide services available at Alpha Dog Systems' websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Alpha Dog Systems' websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Alpha Dog Systems will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Alpha Dog Systems discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Alpha Dog Systems believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Alpha Dog Systems, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Alpha Dog Systems website and have supplied your email address, Alpha Dog Systems may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what's going on with Alpha Dog Systems and our products. If you send us a request (for example via email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Alpha Dog Systems takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If Alpha Dog Systems, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Alpha Dog Systems goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Alpha Dog Systems may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
Like millions of other website owners, we use Google Analytics on alphadogsystems.com
Google Analytics is a piece of software that grabs data about our visitors (you). It’s something like an advanced server log.
What does Google Analytics record?
- What website you came from to get here.
- How long you stay for.
- What kind of computer you’re using.
- And quite a bit more.
What do we do with your data?
The tracking information allows us to better understand the kind of people who come to our site and what content they’re reading. This allows us to make better decisions about design and writing.
Occasionally, we will compile aggregate statistics about the number of visitors this site receives and browsers being used. No personally identifying data is included in this type of reporting.
All of our activity falls within the bounds of the Google Analytics Terms of Service.
