Cookie Policy

When you use our Services, we collect certain information by automated or
electronic means, using technologies such as cookies, pixel tags, web beacons,
browser analysis tools, and web server logs. As you use our Services, your
browser and devices communicate with servers operated by us, our business
partners and services providers to coordinate and record the interactivity and
fill your requests for services and information. Additional information on how
to opt-out of certain tracking features is set forth in the Your
Choices section below.

The information from cookies and related technology is stored in web server
logs and also in web cookies kept on your computers or mobile devices, which
are then transmitted back to our Services by your computers or mobile devices.
These servers are operated and the cookies managed by us, our business partners
or our service providers.

For example, when you access our Services, Discountpetshots and our service
providers may place cookies on your computers or mobile devices. These cookies
may include means for tracking your Transaction Information with a Merchant and
may include tracking technology from third-party affiliate-network operators
like LinkShare and Commission Junction. Cookies allow us to recognize you when
you return, and track and target your interests in order to provide a
customized experience. They also help us detect certain kinds of fraud.

A “cookie” is a small amount of information that a
web server sends to your browser that stores information about your account,
your preferences, and your use of the Services. Some cookies contain serial
numbers that allow us to connect your activity with the Services with other
information we store about you in your profile.

Some cookies are temporary, whereas others may be configured to last longer.
Session” cookies are temporary cookies used for
various reasons, such as to manage page views. Your browser usually erases
Session cookies once you exit your browser. “Persistent
cookies are more permanent cookies that are stored on your computers or mobile
devices even beyond when you exit your browser. We use Persistent cookies for a
number of purposes, such as retrieving certain information you have previously
provided (such as your user id if you asked to be remembered), and storing your

Pixel tags and web beacons are tiny graphic images placed on website pages
or in our emails that allow us to determine whether you have performed specific
actions. When you access these pages or open email messages, the pixel tags and
web beacons generate a notice of that action to us, or our service providers.
These tools allow us to measure response to our communications and improve our
web pages and promotions.

We collect many different types of information from cookies and other
technologies. For example, we may collect information from the devices you use
to access our Services, your operating system type or mobile device model,
browser type, domain, and other system settings, as well as the language your
system uses and the country and time zone of your device. Browsers routinely
send these types of information to web servers. Our server logs also record the
IP addresses of the devices you use to interact with the Services. We may also
collect information about the website you were visiting before you came to our
Services and the website you visit after you leave our Services, if this
information is supplied to us by your browser.

In many cases, the information we collect using cookies and other tools is
used in non-identifiable ways, without any reference to Personal Information.
For example, we use information we collect about users to optimize our Services
and understand its traffic and usage patterns. In other cases, we associate the
information we collect using cookies and related technologies with Personal
Information. In that case, this Privacy Policy governs how we use that

Additionally, if you have visited one of our mobile websites or activated
one of our mobile-device applications, and if the settings on your
location-aware device allow us to receive Location Information, we will collect
that automatically. If we associate Location Information with other Personal
Information, this Privacy Policy governs how we would use that information too.

We may allow third parties to use tracking devices through the Services to
collect the same type of information for the same purposes as Discountpetshots
does for itself. For example, Discountpetshots has relationships with third
party advertising technology and analytics companies, such as Google Analytics,
BlueKai, and Adometry, to perform tracking and reporting functions for our
Services and, in some cases, to help us place targeted advertisements via the
Services or third-party websites. Additionally, we may share non-personally
identifiable information from or about you with third parties, such as location
data, advertising identifiers, or a cryptographic hash of a common account
identifier (such as an email address), to facilitate the display of targeted
advertising. Third parties may be able to associate the information they
collect with other information they have about you from other sources. We do
not necessarily have access to or control over the tracking devices they use,
but you may be able to opt out of some of practices by visiting the links
provide in the Opting Out of Tracking paragraph of the “Your Choices”
section below. Please note that opting out does not prevent the display of all
advertisements to you.

Your Choices

We think that you benefit from a more personalized experience when we know
more about you and the kinds of coupons you like. However, you can limit the
information you provide to Discountpetshots, and you can limit the

Mobile App

If you access any of our Services through one of our mobile applications,
you may manage how your Personal Information is shared with Discountpetshots.
You may adjust the settings on your mobile device to allow or restrict the
sharing of Location Information. For example, the “Location”
permissions (or “Privacy” >> “Location Services” on
iOS-based devices) on your mobile device will allow you to elect whether to
never share Location Information with Discountpetshots, to share Location
Information only while you are using the application (e.g., to help you find
nearby offers), or always share Location Information even while you are not
using the application (e.g., alert you of nearby offers when you approach a
shopping mall). You may also elect to only disable “Bluetooth” to
prevent just the sharing of information collected via nearby Bluetooth ®
proximity beacons. Please note that if you elect to not share your Location
Information, you may be unable to access some features of our Services that are
designed for mobile devices. Also, in the event that you prevent the sharing of
Location Information, we may still estimate your general location based on the
IP address you use to access our Services.

You may also manage how your mobile device handles ad-related tracking technologies
by adjusting your mobile device privacy settings. For example, the
“Privacy” settings of an iOS device will allow you to “Limit Ad
Tracking” and reset your mobile device’s “Advertising
Identifier.” Please refer to instructions provided by the manufacturer of
your device to learn how to adjust your mobile device settings.

You may also opt-out of receiving different types of push notifications or
alerts by toggling off the “Notifications” options within the
“Settings” menu of our mobile applications. This feature is available
in the most recent versions of our iOS-based and Android-based applications.

Text-to-Phone Feature

With certain coupon offers available on our websites, you may be presented
with an option to send yourself an SMS message containing a link. An example of
this feature is shown in the screen shot below. The link will allow you to
access from your mobile device the coupon offer you have selected.

By clicking “Send this offer”, you authorize Discountpetshots to

belongs to you and is associated with a mobile device in your possession. You
can opt out of receiving texts from Discountpetshots at any time by Contacting Us.
