At Barkholic, we want to create a scenario whereby customers can be free to share the personal information, even information which is deep and only associated and identifiable to them. For this reason, Barkholic has adhered to the general data protection regulation with resort to personally identifiable information. Personal and identifiable information refers to information that is unique to one individual. At Barkholic, we seek to ensure that such information and data is protected and not exposed, unless with the express authority from the owner of such personally identifiable information.
The provision of personally identifiable data is a personal choice for the users of the company’s website. This is because when using Barkholic’s site, a user can either subscribe to it or use the general view which is available to all users. For general users, no personally identifiable information is provided. As a result, information about it can be divulged without any privacy veil broken. This is however disadvantageous as it limits the information a user can view. After registration, a user is then required to provide personally identifiable information which should be accurate.
If you do not agree with the consent statement above, please do not provide personally identifiable information. You should, however, beware that if you chose the latter option, we would not be able to offer you some products and information.
All feedback and any related questions are highly welcomed. In case of any privacy-related queries, do contact: firstname.lastname@example.org

Data and information we collect
- Personally identifiable information
- Aggregate information
There is some aggregate information which is usually collected without the knowledge or consent of the user. For example, one such information is the IP address. Such information is done discreetly using clickstream technology. Such information is however harmless.
Use of data
- Personally identifiable data
Barkholic always strives to ensure that the customers of the company attain maximum satisfaction. This can only be possible if complete information about customers is known. Consequently, the personally identifiable information is then used to ensure to actualize this course by contacting customers whenever needed, delivering products to their address, sending them newsletters, customize the products being supplied, and other uses which are useful and enhance the satisfaction of the customer.
- Aggregate information
The aggregate information is mainly used to improve the website of the company and make it interesting. This eventually indirectly helps Barkholic to improve in its product offering. This general information is non-personal in nature. Due to this, the company has contracted a third party organization to sieve through this personally information constantly and help the company to improve the website.
Information we share with others
Barkholic is not involved in the supply chain from the onset to the final delivery to customers. It has to outsource some of its services and processes to third parties. In the course of this outsourcing, the company finds itself having to divulge personally identifiable information. These third parties, however, have to sign a non-disclosure agreement and are under contract not to use this information for their own personal gain.
Notwithstanding the privacy policies and the non-disclosure agreements, there are times when the company discloses this personally identifiable information. These circumstances are many and diverse and are looked at o a case by case basis, as long as it is within the law and regulations.
Your email will only be used within the company for purposes which you signed up for and will not be revealed to any third party. The email will be used by the company to request you to confirm an order, verify your website login detail, and send you regular information like the newsletter.
Link to other websites
The company always looks out for its customers best interests, hence may from time to time provide links to third party websites we think you will enjoy. These websites operate independently from Barkholic, and they have their own privacy practices. You should, therefore, review these privacy policies before engaging in them.
Internet advertisement and tracking tags
The visits to the websites are important to us. As a result, the company usually contracts third parties to collect and analyze information about the visits to the site. This information is however general and not personally identifiable information. Even when we provide data to these third-party analysts, it is in aggregate form. Hence, they cannot identify any particular user. Barkholic uses ad management providers such as DoubleClick among others who provide tracking tags like pixels. These tracking tags enable the company to know the kind of information which attract users to the company’s website. Hence, they are able to take advantage of this.
