Who we are
We are the Scottish Deerhound Club of America (Club), a club made up owners, breeders, and lovers of Scottish Deerhounds. The Deerhound Store allows anyone who is interested in Scottish Deerhounds to purchase our National Specialty merchandise and meals, Club products, and donate to health research. Additionally, Club members may submit Futurity entries.
We care about your privacy and do not sell, trade your information with anyone. We do share your personal information with the vendors necessary to operate our web site.
- We are thoughtful about the personal information we ask you to provide and the personal information that we collect about you through the operation of our Site.
- We store personal information for only as long as we have a reason to keep it.
- We aim for full transparency on how we gather, use, and share your personal information.
Below we explain how we collect, use, and share information about you, along with the choices that you have with respect to that information.
What personal data we collect and why we collect it
Information we collect
We only collect personal information for one of these reasons:
If you set up an account
Users can choose to set up an account at the store in order to make their shopping experience easier. In order to set up an account, we require your name and email. You may provide us with more information–like your name and address–but we don’t require that information to create your account.
Transactions and Shipping information
When you buy something from us or make a contribution to health research, you will provide personal information such as name, address, shipping address and contact information.
When a club form, such as a Futurity entry is submitted, we collect personal information including name, address, and email. This is submitted via email to the appropriate club member.
Contact Us Form
If you use the Contact Us form, we collect your name and email.
Information We Collect Automatically
We also collect some information automatically:
The Store is hosted by Siteground which creates automatic back-ups of the web site. You can read their policies here.
Like many online sites, we use Jetpack by Autmattic to collect information that web browsers, mobile devices, and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, IP address, unique device identifiers, language preference, referring site, the date and time of access, operating system, and mobile network information.
We may determine the approximate location of your device from your IP address. We collect and use this information to, for example, calculate how many people visit our Site from certain geographic regions.
Through our use of Jetpack and WordPress for operating our Site, we collect information about your usage of the Site. We also collect information about what happens when you use our Site. We use this information to get insights on how people use our Site, so we can make our Site better.
If you allow us to use your images on the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.
If you use the Contact Us form, we collect your name and email address. We keep this information as long as it is needed to respond to your contact. We do not share, sell, or use it for marketing purposes. If you request it, we will delete the information unless it is legally necessary for us to keep it.
If you fill in a Club form, for example a Futurity entry, the information we collect may include your name, email address, or physical address as well as other personal information. You may request that your information contained in the form and stored on the Site be removed at any time. To do so, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Cookies are files with small amount of data, which may include an anonymous unique identifier. Cookies are sent to your browser from a web site and stored on your computer’s hard drive.
Like many sites, we use “cookies” to collect information. You can instruct your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. However, if you do not accept cookies, you may not be able to use some portions of our Store such as placing an order.
