We will use your information to respond to you, regarding the reason you contacted us. We will not share your information with any third party outside of our organization, other than as necessary to fulfill your request, e.g. book a pet sitting assignment.

Unless you ask us not to, we may contact you via email in the future to tell you about rate or service changes, additions to pet sitting associates, dates when owner will not be available or changes to this privacy policy.

We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and offline.

The computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.

Some of our business partners may use cookies on our site (for example, advertisers). However, we have no access to or control over these cookies and they do not collect personal information about you.
