1. Website Visitors
Like most website operators, Ohmycat 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. Ohmycat’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Ohmycat’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Ohmycat may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Ohmycat also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on https://ohmycat.cat blog posts. Ohmycat only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below.
2. Personally-Identifying Information and what personal information we collect.

- Information you post: If you comment or otherwise provide information in a public space on one of our websites, we collect a record of it and any personal information included in the comment. For example, this may include posting a review of a product

We may use automated technology such as cookies and other tracking software to collect personal information from your computer system or mobile device. We may collect the following information:

*We use this information on an anonymous basis and do not use it to identify any particular user. We do not link this data to any other data that we hold about you.
Third parties may also provide us with additional publicly available information about you.
We therefore do not respond to browser Do Not Track signals.
3. How do we use your personal information?
We use your personal information for business purposes: to make our products and services available to you; to personalize your shopping experience; to improve our operations; and for security and legal reasons.
Some examples of how we use your personal information include:
- Processing and fulfilling orders online or in-stores, including by facilitating the delivery of product orders

- Allowing you to create a profile on our websites which enables you to purchase Ohmycat products and services online without having to fill in your personal information every time you shop online with us
- Ensuring that our websites are presented in the most effective and relevant manner for you and your device, including setting default options for you such as language and store location
- Conducting checks for fraud or other illegal activity
- Protecting our rights or property (or those of others)

Links to Third-Party Websites and Additional Terms
The security of your Personal Information is very important to us. Remember that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage is 100% secure. To protect your data and give you better security we use Secure Sockets Layer, a security technology for establishing an encrypted link between a server and a client—typically a web server (website) and a browser, or a mail server and a mail client). This technology allows sensitive information such as credit card numbers, social security numbers, and login credentials to be transmitted securely. Normally, data sent between browsers and web servers is sent in plain text—leaving you vulnerable to eavesdropping. If an attacker is able to intercept all data being sent between a browser and a web server, they can see and use that information. While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
5. Links To External Sites
We have no control over, and assume no responsibility for the content, privacy policies or practices of any third party sites, products or services.
6. Ohmycat uses Google AdWords for remarketing
You can set preferences for how Google advertises to you using the Google Ad Preferences page, and if you want to you can opt out of interest-based advertising entirely by cookie settings or permanently using a browser plugin.
7. Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Ohmycat discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors, affiliated organisations and business partners that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Ohmycat’s behalf or to provide services available at Ohmycat’s website, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organisations may be located outside of your home country; by using Ohmycat’s website, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Ohmycat will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organisations, as described above, Ohmycat discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental requests, or when Ohmycat believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Ohmycat, third parties or the public at large.
If you are a registered user of https://ohmycat.cat and have supplied your email address, Ohmycat may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Ohmycat and our products. We primarily use our blog to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Ohmycat takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
Depending on your jurisdiction, you may have certain rights with respect to your personal information. If you would like to speak to us about any of your rights, please contact us: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The verifiable consumer request must:
- Provide sufficient information that allows us to verify, to a reasonably high degree of certainty, that you are the person about whom we collected personal information. This may include requesting that you provide us with at least two or more pieces of personal information to match against personal information about you that we may or may not maintain and which we have determined to be reliable for the purpose of verification.
