We Do Not Share Your Personal Information:
We use other third parties such as a shipping company to fulfill orders, a third party shopping cart platform provider, and a credit card processing company to bill you for goods and services. We use Live Chat to assist you if you have questions while using our site or regarding your order. We will share your name, billing address, shipping address and credit card information as necessary for the third party to provide that service.
These third parties are prohibited from using your personally identifiable information for promotional purposes.

Third Party Cookies
Clear Gifs (Web Beacons/Web Bugs)
Our third party advertising partner employs a software technology called clear gifs (a.k.a. Web Beacons/Web Bugs), that help us better manage content on our site by informing us what content is effective. Clear gifs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of Web users. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user's computer hard drive, clear gifs are embedded invisibly on Web pages and are about the size of the period at the end of this sentence. We do not tie the information gathered by clear gifs to our customers' personally identifiable information.
Links to Other Sites
If you click on a link to a third party site, you will leave www.barkworthies.com and go to the site you selected. Because we cannot control the activities of third parties, we cannot accept responsibility for any use of your personally identifiable information by such third parties, and we cannot guarantee that they will adhere to the same privacy practices as www.Barkworthies.com. We encourage you to review the privacy statements of any other service provider from whom you request services. If you visit a third party website that is linked to www.barkworthies.com, you should read that site's privacy statement before providing any personally identifiable information.
Do you still have questions?
We use the AddThis and ShareThis widget on our site to allow you to share our site or blog posts with your friends on social networking sites. Barkworthies has no access or control over the privacy practices of the third party sites you wish to post links on.
Surveys or Contests
From time-to-time we may provide you the opportunity to participate in contests or surveys on our site. If you participate, we will request certain personally identifiable information from you. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and you therefore have a choice whether or not to disclose this information. The requested information typically includes contact information (such as name and shipping address), and demographic information (such as zip code).
We use this information to notify contest winners of prizes and to improve site functionality in the case of surveys.
