Urban Out Sitters’ Privacy Policy

We respect and are committed to protecting your privacy. That is why we have adopted this privacy policy. This privacy policy lets you know how your personal information is processed and used. We promise that we will take steps to use your personal information only in ways that are compatible with this privacy policy. The following policies are only in effect for the Web pages, newsletters, and opt-in announcement lists owned by Urban Out Sitters. The Urban Out Sitters network consists of all Web sites and other certain Internet media properties hyperlinked from the Urban Out Sitters home page. The following discloses our Privacy Policy.

What Information Are You Collecting and How Are You Collecting It?

Every computer that is connected to the Internet is given a domain name and a set of numbers that serve as the computer’s Internet Protocol address (IP address). When a visitor requests a page from any Web site within the Urban Out Sitters network, our Web servers automatically recognize that visitor’s domain name and IP address. The domain name and IP address reveal nothing personal about you other than the IP address from which you have accessed our site. We use this information to examine our traffic in aggregate, and to investigate misuse of the Urban Out Sitters network, its users, or to cooperate with law enforcement.

What Are Cookies?

From time to time, Urban Out Sitters may send a “cookie” to your computer. A cookie is a small piece of data that is sent to your Internet browser from a Web server and stored on your computer’s hard drive. A cookie cannot read data off your computer hard disk or read cookie files created by other Web sites. Cookies do not damage your system. We use cookies to identify which areas of Urban Out Sitters’ network you have visited, so that next time you visit, those pages may be readily accessible. We may also use cookies to ascertain how many times you’ve seen an advertisement. We may use this information to better personalize content, banners, and promotions that you see on our site. You can choose whether or not to accept these cookies by changing the settings of your Internet browser. You can reset your browser to refuse all cookies, or allow your browser to show you when a cookie is being sent. If you choose not to accept these cookies, your experience at our site and other Web sites may be diminished and some features may not work as intended.

We also use 3rd-party tracking and marketing software including Google Analytics and Google AdWords. This sometimes extends to the Google AdWords remarketing programs. In the future, we reserve the right to use like-technology to advertise to our visitors when they visit third-party websites within the ad networks where we participate. You may choose whether to have your information collected for this purpose. To learn more about interest-based advertising, including how to opt out, visit the Network Advertising Initiative opt-out page.

Any personal or individual information you provide to Urban Out Sitters is held or shared only by Urban Out Sitters, its associated companies, or its representatives and agents who are acting on our behalf with regard to your activity.

We do not rent, sell, or exchange mailing lists or responses of individual visitors to or with any other unaffiliated third parties. We respect the information you provide to us and treat it carefully. Urban Out Sitters will disclose personal information and/or your IP address when required by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary.

Urban Out Sitters uses reasonable precautions to keep secure any information disclosed to us. Urban Out Sitters reserves the right to transfer all such information in connection with the sale of all or part of Urban Out Sitters capital stock or assets. Furthermore, we are not responsible for any breach of security or for any actions of any third parties that receive the information. We are not responsible for such third party privacy policies or how they treat information about their users.
