At Shelter Pups, it is our policy to collect as little information from our users are possible. When using our site, we limit the collection of information to email, zip code and age. When purchasing products, we also collect additional types of information (e.g., credit card and billing information). Shelter Pups does not condition participation in any of our online activities on the disclosure of more information than is reasonably necessary to participate in the activity.
Shelter Pups limits collection of information to email, zip code and age. Here is how we use this information:
- Email: Shelter Pups may use your email to send Rescue Point redemption confirmations. We'll never sell your email to outside companies or affiliates. Our marketing material is strictly "Opt in," that means we'll only contact you about such things as sales and special offers if you ask us to! Your email address will never be displayed to the public.
- Zip Code: We want to know where our rescued Shelter Pups are! Your zip code will allow us to find the local animal shelters in your area so you can make donations to them! It will also help us make a cool map showing Shelter Pups around the world.
- Age: To comply with government regulations, all International Rescue Hero must be over 13 years of age. Younger than 13? No problem, we will contact your parents for permission to use Shelter Pups.
We recommend using non-personally identifiable information when creating a nickname and secret word. Your nickname and secret word are only used to redeem your Rescue Points and access your adventure log.
Shelter Pups allows parents/legal guardians to review any identifiable information collected about their child, have this information deleted, and/or request that there be no further collection or use of their child's information. Please contact our support team and to start this process.
When purchasing products from Shelter Pups, your information will only be sharing with two other sources; the bank to process your payment and the United States Post Office to ship your purchase.
