Identifying Information. In general, you can visit the Site without telling us who you are or providing any information about yourself. In some areas of the Site, we ask you to provide information that will enable us to process an order, offer services that require registration, assist you with technical support issues or to follow up with you. Generally, American Pet Association requests identifying information when you:

What American Pet Association Will Do With Your Information. If you choose to give us personal information for any of the purposes above, this information is retained by American Pet Association and will only be used by American Pet Association to support your customer/member relationship with us.

What Others May Do With Your Information. American Pet Association does not share, rent, or sell any personally identifying information provided through our Site (such as your name or email address) to any outside organization. From time to time American Pet Association may use agents or contractors who will have access to your personal information to perform services for American Pet Association (such as DATABASE MAINTENANCE, etc.), however, they are required by us to keep the information confidential and may not use it for any purpose other than to carry out the services for American Pet Association.

American Pet Association Online Membership Access. The American Pet Association Online Membership Access is designed to give you the ability to update your membership file.  You will always have access to this account information and can view it, update it or correct it at any time. To access your information, you will need to use a password.

When purchasing a membership through the our web site, the order form will also ask you to provide a daytime telephone number, evening, cell additional contact and other numbers. However, these telephone numbers are only used to provide pet recoveries, or quickly resolve questions relative to an order, such as to clarify customer email addresses that are inactive, or entered incorrectly.
