Effective as of September 27, 2023

Your privacy is very important to us. This RABO Privacy Policy (“Privacy Policy”) describes how RABO, Inc. (“RABO”, “we”, “us”, or “our”) processes and uses the personal information that we collect through our websites and mobile apps (“Online Services”).

1. We Make Updates to This Privacy Policy

We may update this Privacy Policy from time to time, and the updated Privacy Policy applies to you after the effective date stated in the revised Privacy Policy. Please come back to this page occasionally to check to see if it has been updated. If our information practices change, we will post an updated policy on our website. If we change the policy in a material way, we will provide appropriate notice to you such as posting a prominent notice on our website or emailing you if you provided your email to us.

2. Information You Provide to Us

We collect information that you provide to us, depending on how you interact with us. For example, you may provide information to us when you:

(a) Register to use our services

During the registration process, you may provide information such as your name, email address, physical address, password, phone number, mobile phone number, username, RABO products used, devices you use and connect, and information about your cat (such as your cat’s name, breed, age, date of birth, weight, height, coat color, pictures or movies, and data of eating, sleeping, activity and excretion).

You may provide your payment information to us, such as credit and debit card numbers, expiration date, and CVV as well as mailing address through orders, purchases, or other payment or subscription services.

We collect information when you share stories, content, experiences, suggestions, preferences or other input, or submit requests for information from us. This includes information you share when you access or interact with RABO pages or accounts on any third-party social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram, or contact us by email. 

Content you share on our Online Services or social media pages may include personal information. You are responsible for all actions resulting from any information you post on our Online Services or social media pages. Please remember that any information you post on social media pages may become publicly available, is not subject to this Privacy Policy, and RABO is not responsible for the results of such postings.

3. Information We Collect Automatically or from Others

We may obtain some information automatically, for example, when you:

(a) Access or use the Online Services

Traffic Data. Our Online Services automatically track and collect your IP address, location information, domain server, type of computer or device, type of web browser, and browser language. This helps us customize your online experience and assists with our marketing. We use this information to make our online experience better and more relevant for you. 

Cookies. We also use cookies, which are small text files that are stored on your computer and allow websites to remember information about you (“Cookies”). You may disable the use of cookies by changing the settings on your web browser. But if you disable cookies, you may not be able to use certain features of the Online Services. 

Web Beacons. Certain pages on the Online Services and social media pages may contain web beacons (also known as Internet tags, pixel tags, and clear GIFs), which are small bits of code embedded in pages or images on the Online Services and social media pages (“Web Beacons”). The Web Beacons may be used with Cookies to understand how you interact with us, so we can manage and improve those interactions. We may also include Web Beacons in e-mails we send to you to learn if messages have been opened, acted on, or forwarded. This helps us improve future messages and makes them more meaningful to you.

Other Technologies. We also utilize other tracking technologies. For example, if permitted by applicable law, we may collect “referrers”. A “referrer” is information your web browser passes along to web servers that refers to the URL from which you accessed the Online Services.

Like most websites, we may also collect environmental variables, which include, among other things, the domain from which you access the Internet, the time you accessed the Online Services or social media pages, the type of web browsers and operating system or platform used, the Internet address of the website you left to visit the Online Services or social media pages, the names of the web pages you visit, the Internet address of the website you visit next, and your browser settings (e.g., language preference). We use these technologies for marketing purposes and to improve your experience with our Online Services.

Information collected automatically may be combined with other personal information we have about you so that we can improve and customize the Online Services and our communications and promotions. 

In a nutshell, the following are examples of information we collect with these automated technologies:

  • your IP address, browser type, and operating system;

  • the mobile device you use and its temporary or persistent unique device identifiers;

  • pages you view within the Online Services;

  • websites you visited before coming to the Online Services;

  • video viewing history for videos you watch on the Online Services;

  • emails from us that you open and/or forward; and/or

  • offers or links from us to which you connect. 

(b) Enable our devices or services

When you use or enable our devices or services, we may obtain room temperature, battery level of the device(s), and other information automatically collected from your device(s).  

(c) Use social media platforms or other connected third-party services

The Online Services and our communications may contain links to third-party websites, including social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram (collectively, “Linked Sites”). We are not responsible for the privacy practices, policies, or content of any Linked Sites, even if you followed a link to them from the Online Services or our communications. This Privacy Policy does not apply to any Linked Sites. We encourage you to read and understand the privacy policies of any Linked Sites that you visit.

We may obtain information about you from Linked Sites. For example, when you engage with the Online Services through Linked Sites such as third-party social media sites, you may be allowing us to have ongoing access to certain information stored on those Linked Sites as described to you by those Linked Sites (e.g., your public profile, profile photo, friends list). We may receive certain information about you which is stored on Linked Sites if other users of those sites give us access to their profiles and you are one of their friends or connections, depending upon your settings on those Linked Sites. The information we have access to from Linked Sites varies and is controlled by your privacy settings on each Linked Site and by your consent.

We also obtain some personal information from others, for example:

Your Friends and Family. We may obtain additional information about you when someone, like your friend or family member, provides your information to us as part of their interaction with us (e.g., using the “Account Share” function) or a referral or promotional program (e.g., refer-a-friend program).

If we offer you the ability to share information with a friend or family member through email or other means, we rely on you to ensure that you only share information with individuals with whom you have a personal or family relationship and who would want to receive the communication. We will use the contact information you provide to communicate with your friend or family member on your behalf.

When we collect or transmit sensitive information such as a credit card number, we endeavor to use industry standard methods to protect that information. We also ask our third-party service providers to use reasonable security measures to protect your information from unauthorized access, use and disclosure. However, please be aware that no method of electronically transmitting or storing information is ever completely secure.

7. Additional California Disclosures

California Business & Professions Code Section 22575(b) (as amended effective January 1, 2014) provides that California residents are entitled to know how we respond to “Do Not Track” browser settings. We do not currently take actions to respond to Do Not Track signals because a uniform technological standard has not yet been developed. 

For the purpose of California’s “Shine the Light” law as codified in California Civil Code Section 1798.83-84, as of the effective date of this Privacy Policy, we do not share California residents’ personal information with third parties for such third parties’ own direct marketing purposes.
