D. USE OF COOKIES AND CLEAR GIFs

Cookies: Like many other commercial sites, our Site utilizes standard technologies called "cookies" and clear GIFs to collect information about how our site is used. A cookie is a small data text file, which a website stores on your computer's hard drive (if your web browser permits) that can later be retrieved to identify you to us. Cookies were designed to help a website recognize a user's browser as a previous visitor and thus save and remember any preferences that may have been set while the user was browsing the site. A cookie cannot be read by a website other than the one that set the cookie. A cookie cannot pass on a computer virus or capture any of the Personally Identifiable Information that resides on your computer.

Clear GIFs: At times, we work with third-party service partners that employ clear GIFs (also known as pixel tags, single pixel GIFs, web beacons or action tags) for our benefit to help us measure advertising effectiveness. Clear GIFs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of our users. The main difference between the two is that clear GIFs are invisible on the page and are much smaller, about the size of the period at the end of this sentence. Clear GIFs are not tied to your Personally Identifiable Information and only track the visitor traffic and behavior to and on our Site.

Clear GIFs can "work with" existing cookies on a computer if they are both from the same website or advertising company. That means, for example, that if a person visited "www.XYZ.com", which uses an advertising company's clear GIF, the website would match the clear GIFs identifier and the advertising company's cookie ID number, to show the past online behavior for that computer. This collected information can be shared with the advertising company. We do, at times, provide such information to our third-party advertising service partners, but that information can only be used by our partner for our benefit and never includes personally identifiable information.

E. THIRD-PARTY WEBSITES AND EXTERIOR LINKS

This site contains links to other sites and we are not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such sites.

F. YOUR OPT-OUT RIGHTS

You may opt-out of receiving communications from us and/or our partners by not submitting your information. We also allow you to remove your information from our email lists. If you remove your information from our email lists it will no longer be used by us to send updates, newsletters, and most of correspondence to you. You can remove your information from our email lists by clicking on the unsubscribe link at the bottom of most emails we send you, or by sending your request, in writing, via email to: contact@girlmeetscats.com

G. PRIVACY POLICY CHANGES

Girl Meets Cats™ may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and at Girl Meets Cats' sole discretion. Girl Meets Cats™ encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy.
