This blog is a personal blog written and edited by me. I accept advertising, and may consider forms of sponsorship, paid insertions or other compensation. The compensation received will never influence the opinions, content, topics or posts made in this blog. 

While some advertisers may place cookies on the users' browsers to improve their experience, All Things Dog Blog does not collect, store or disclose any personal information, and therefore, cannot use it in any way, with one minor exception. As an email subscriber, your email address becomes available to me. However, your email information will only be used for an occasional announcement of major importance to my readers, such as the introduction of a new veterinarian columnist. Your email address will never be sold or used by third party advertisers. Readers who purchase from third party advertisers on our site are encouraged to read the advertisers' privacy policies and policies regarding cookies.

If you choose to subscribe to our feed or our email posts, your email address is the only information we will retain about you. Likewise, if you correspond with All Things Dog Blog or its employees, any information you disclose will be saved in emails. These will not be forwarded, shared, or posted, except in those circumstances where you request our trainer, veterinarian or other staff member to assist or publish your information in a way that is regularly published as a post (i.e. Ask the Vet, Ask the Dog Trainer, Rescuing Rover, or any other columns containing reader-supplied content.)

Photos sent to All Things Dog Blog will become the property of All Things Dog Blog. When possible, your first name or initials will be used to establish your copyright on file with me. Only those photos without people in them will be used, with the sole exception of my own family and All Things Dog Blog's employees, contractors or consultants. On rare occasions, a stock photo containing humans in the image, will be acquired legally from a reputable source. To sum this up, no human faces will be shown unless they give their explicit permission to do so, and I will not pursue these types of photos often. When used, such photos will be used legally and with attribution.
