What information does Barking collect?
Barking may request and/or collect information from you on a voluntary basis when you: register with us or when you send questions via email using on our contact page. The requested information may include personal information such as your name and email address.
News and updates
When registering you will be asked if you wish to receive news and updates. With your permission, Barking uses such information to periodically contact you with product information news, special offers and new apps/games that are released.
By allowing you to send email to us, we are not attempting to collect any personal information about you. We will only use personal information (such as name and email address) contained in your email to respond to your specific inquiry or comments in the email. Although we may retain your email for a period of time, we will not use any personal information contained in your email for any purpose other than responding to your specific inquiry or comments. Whatever the activity may be, we will only collect information to the extent deemed reasonably necessary to fulfil your requests and our legitimate business objectives.
If you are receiving emails or regular mail and at a later date you choose to opt out, you can do so by logging into your account and choosing the appropriate setting.
When we might disclose information
As part of our regular business conduct, we may share information with companies or individuals providing services or acting on our behalf, such as companies providing technological or fulfillment services. In the event that there is a change of corporate ownership, the new owners will of course be provided with our files, including information you have submitted. We will also share information with government officials, including law enforcement officials or court authorities, in order to cooperate with a legitimate investigation. Unless we tell you first (such as at the time we collect information), or unless it is part of a specific program or feature in which you have elected to participate, we do not share personally information that we have collected (such as name or email address) with other, third-party companies for their own commercial or marketing purposes.
Links and third parties
From time to time we may include links to other websites as a service to you. The third party sites are operated by companies that are outside of our control, and your activities at those sites will be governed by the policies and practices of those third parties. We encourage you to review the privacy practices of these third parties before disclosing any personally identifiable information, as we are not responsible for the privacy practices of those sites.
Barking may also collect your IP address for safety and security purposes. An IP address is a number that is used by computers on the network to identify your computer every time you log on to the Internet.
Other non-personal information collected by Barking is in the form of logs - files that record website activity, including how many "hits" a particular web page is getting (a.k.a., "click-through data"). For example, log file entries are generated every time a visitor clicks the "Home" button on our site. These entries enable Barking to assess overall site activity, track interest in advertised sales, track interest in purchase behavior, and troubleshoot technical concerns. Through the use of log files, we may also collect certain demographic information such as the type of browser you are using (e.g. Chrome, Firefox, Edge, Safari etc), the type of operating system you are using (e.g. Windows, Mac OS, Linux), and the domain name of your Internet service provider (e.g. Comcast, AT&T).

Some of our apps may let you take pictures/video and record sound using the microphone. We will store these files securely on our server and only apps that you log into will have access to these files. Barking will not share these files with other third parties.
