Sharing information should be easy. And we want to provide you with the privacy tools necessary to control how and with whom you share that information.
You should have control over your personal information.
Love My Pets helps you share information with your friends and people around you. You choose what information you put in your profile, including contact and personal information, pictures, interests and groups you join.
And you control the users with whom you share that information through the privacy settings on the respective pages.
You should have access to the information others want to share.
There is an increasing amount of information available out there, and you may want to know what relates to you, your friends, and people around you. We want to help you easily get that information.
If you have questions or ideas, please cotact the webmaster.

Sharing Your Information with Other Members
When you register with Love My Pets, you create your own profile and privacy settings. Your profile information, as well as your name, email and photo, are displayed to the website visitors/members to enable you to connect with people on Love My Pets. We may occasionally use your name and email address to send you notifications regarding new services offered by Love My Pets that we think you may find valuable.
Profile information is used by Love My Pets primarily to be presented back to and edited by you when you access the service.
Profile information you submit to Love My Pets will be available to visitors/users of Love My Pets. Your name, and profile picture thumbnail will be available in search results across the Love My Pets network and those limited pieces of information may be made available to third party search engines. This is primarily so your friends can find you and send a friend request. People who see your name in searches, will not be able to access your information you marked as private unless they have a relationship to you (friend, member of your networks, etc.) that allows such access based on your privacy settings.
Love My Pets may send you service-related announcements from time to time through the general operation of the service. For instance, if a friend sends you a new message or poke, or someone posts on your wall, you may receive an email alerting you to that fact.
Generally, you may opt out of such emails from the Notifications page, though Love My Pets reserves the right to send you notices about your account even if you opt out of all voluntary email notifications.
Love My Pets may use information in your profile without identifying you as an individual to third parties. We do this for purposes such as aggregating how many people in a network and personalizing advertisements and promotions. We believe this benefits you. You can know more about the world around you and, where there are advertisements, they're more likely to be interesting to you.
Love My Pets is about sharing information with others — friends and people in your networks — while providing you with privacy settings that restrict other users from accessing your information marked as private. We allow you to mark limited number of information as private so not all can view that information (including photo albums, etc). We do not provide contact information to third party marketers without your permission. We share your information with third parties only in limited circumstances where we believe such sharing is 1) reasonably necessary to offer the service, 2) legally required or, 3) permitted by you.
Your News Feed and Wall may aggregate the information you provide and make it available.
We may occasionally provide demonstration accounts that allow non-users a glimpse into the Love My Pets world. Such accounts have only limited capabilities (e.g., messaging is disabled) and passwords are changed regularly to limit possible misuse.
We may be required to disclose user information pursuant to lawful requests, such as subpoenas or court orders, or in compliance with applicable laws. We do not reveal information until we have a good faith belief that an information request by law enforcement or private litigants meets applicable legal standards. Additionally, we may share account or other information when we believe it is necessary to comply with law, to protect our interests or property, to prevent fraud or other illegal activity perpetrated through the Love My Pets service or using the Love My Pets name, or to prevent imminent bodily harm. This may include sharing information with other companies, lawyers, agents or government agencies.
