Cyberdog.net collects information in different ways from Visitors and Customers who access the various parts of our services.
We use this information primarily to provide a customised experience as you use our services and, we do not share this information with third parties.
However, we may disclose personal information collected if we have received your permission beforehand or in very special circumstances, such as when we believe that law requires such disclosure or other special cases described below.

To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the appropriate use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures reasonably designed to safeguard and secure the information we collect online. Our site uses state of the art high-level SSL encryption.
This ensures that your transactions are secure and your information cannot be hi-jacked or redirected to anyone but Cyberdog.net. Look for the yellow padlock in the bottom-right or top-right of your browser as you enter the Checkout section of our site.
Our payment system is safer than doing credit card payments over the phone or over the counter. All transmission of credit card information is encrypted and our server is located in a secure area accessible by authorized personnel only. No credit card information is saved after the transactions are settled.
SagePay, our third party credit card processor communicates to the merchant's credit card processor through their existing network architecture using dedicated telephone lines.
While we make every effort to ensure the integrity and security of our network and systems, we cannot guarantee that our security measures will prevent third-party "hackers" from illegally obtaining this information. Cyberdog.net takes your safety on the Internet very seriously.

"Cookies" And How Cyberdog.net Uses Them.
Cookies are small amounts of data sent to your web browser by a web server. They cannot harm your machine in any way, as they are small text files with simple information in them. You can see them as small text files inside your 'Temporary Internet Files' folder in Windows.
Our cookies keep track of the items in your shopping basket and act as place markers when you move around the site. We also use software to track general browsing behaviour on our website. This means that we can build up a picture of the most popular areas and paths through the site and any problem areas, though we don't use it on a personal level to track individuals and their behaviour.
You may experience problems with our site when you try to buy items. These are usually to do with how you have set up your security settings in your web browser.
To use the site you will need to set the security level for the Internet to Medium (under Tools/Internet Options). This is for "Safe browsing but still functional".
Alternatively you can add shop.cyberdog.net to your list of trusted sites. Should you wish to turn off cookies in your browser, your browser's help menu should tell you how to do this, but this will, of course, affect some of the features of our site and therefore your shopping experience.
