When Gimme Discloses Information
Gimme does not share information that can identify you personally with third parties for their own marketing or promotional uses without your consent. We may share such information for the following purposes:
Gimme may make information available to our affiliates (meaning entities controlled by, controlling, or under common control with Gimme).
Gimme may disclose user information if we believe in good faith that such disclosure is necessary to comply with U.S. state and federal laws or other applicable laws around the world (for example, in the country of your residence); or respond to a court order, judicial or other government subpoena, or warrant in the manner legally required.
Gimme also reserves the right to disclose information that we believe, in good faith, is appropriate or necessary to: take precautions against liability to Gimme; protect Gimme from fraudulent, abusive, or unlawful uses; investigate and defend ourselves against third party claims, or allegations to protect the security or integrity of the Gimme Service; or protect the rights, property, or safety of Gimme, our users, or others.
You may decline to share certain information with Gimme, in which case Gimme may not be able to provide to you some of the features and functionality found on the Gimme Service. To update, correct, or delete certain information and establish preferences regarding your profile on Gimme, visit the Profile page, or contact email@example.com. It is also possible to disable your account from the Pettings page.

In your request, please include your email address, name, address, and telephone number and specify clearly what information is relevant to your request. We will try to comply with your request as soon as reasonably practicable.

Gimme uses a variety of managerial, technical, and physical measures to protect the integrity and security of your information. These measures may vary based on the sensitivity of your information. However, no security precautions or systems can be completely secure. We cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to Gimme, and you do so at your own risk. We cannot guarantee that such information may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of our physical, technical, or managerial safeguards.
IF YOU ARE UNDER 13 YEARS OF AGE, THEN PLEASE DO NOT USE OR ACCESS THE GIMME SERVICE AT ANY TIME OR IN ANY MANNER.
Protecting the privacy of young children is especially important. For that reason, Gimme does not knowingly collect or maintain personal information from persons under 13 years-of-age. If Gimme learns that personal information of persons under 13-years-of-age has been collected on or through the Gimme Service, Gimme will take the appropriate steps to delete this information.
If you are the parent or legal guardian of a child under 13 who has become a Gimme Service member, then please contact Gimme at email@example.com to have that child's account terminated and personal information deleted.
Merger or Sale
In the event that Gimme, or some or all assets related to the Gimme Service are acquired by or merged with a third-party entity or in connection with a contemplated change of ownership transaction, we reserve the right, in any of these circumstances, to transfer or assign the information that we have collected from users as part of that merger, acquisition, sale, or other change of control event.

California Privacy Rights and "Do Not Track"
California law permits users who are California residents to request and obtain from us once a year, free of charge, a list of the third parties to whom we have disclosed their personal information (if any) for their direct marketing purposes in the prior calendar year, as well as the type of personal information disclosed to those parties. Gimme does not currently disclose personal information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes.
California Business & Professions Code Section 22575(b) provides that California residents are entitled to know how we respond to "Do Not Track" browser settings. Like many other websites and online services, we do not currently alter our practices when we receive Do Not Track signals as there is no consensus among industry participants as to what "Do Not Track" means in this context.
