At the Petco Foundation, we are concerned with protecting your privacy. We use the information we collect about you to provide a personalized donor experience. We may also use it to tell you about our efforts in animal welfare that we think you'd appreciate if you are subscribed to our newsletters. You'll never have to worry about receiving a barrage of unexpected email from us if you have not subscribed with us. We will not sell, rent or trade your information.

We occasionally have third party agents, subsidiaries, affiliates and joint ventures that perform functions on our behalf. They have access to personal information needed to perform their functions, and are contractually obligated to maintain the confidentiality and security of the data. They are restricted from using this data for other purposes, and in any way other than to provide the requested services to the Petco Foundation, and may not alter or resell the data. You may elect to opt-out of personally identifiable site tracking activity by following the Opt-out link below.

Data collected by these third-parties will be covered under the third-party's Privacy Policy agreement.

Sometimes you may provide us with data that doesn't reveal your personal identity - what type of pet you're interested in, for example. We use this sort of information for editorial and personalization purposes, and occasionally for other internal purposes (maybe we'll educate cat guardians about particular issues concerning cats, for example) but we do not connect it to any name, address or other personal identifying information. This way we can give you customized information without compromising your privacy.

We use a third party agent to handle our email marketing and you may refer to their privacy policy here.
