Privacy Policy

Privacy comes first and foremost at Willowbranch Canine Companions. Your privacy is critically important to us. This privacy policy is effective 1-12-2023; it summarizes what information we might collect from a registered user or other visitor, and what we will and will not do with it.

First, we have a few fundamental principles at Willowbranch Canine Companions:

  • We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it to provide our services.
  • We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.
  • We don’t sell personal information. Your name and email address will never be given or sold to a 3rd party.
  • We don’t store personal information on our servers unless it’s required for the on-going operation of one of our services.


Like most website operators, Willowbranch Canine Companions collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Willowbranch Canine Companions’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Willowbranch Canine Companions’s visitors use its website.

From time to time, Willowbranch Canine Companions may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Willowbranch Canine Companions also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on Willowbranch Canine Companions blogs. Willowbranch Canine Companions only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.

One other exception is when a Willowbranch Canine Companions giveaway is entered by a logged in user, the IP address of the entrant will be logged and available for the giveaway administrator to view with the intentions of using this information to help moderate giveaway entries. It’s common for sweepstakes promotions run by giveaway administrators to limit entries into their giveaways to one per household or per IP address, as an IP address might represent an individual household.
