Welcome to the Mutt Merch website. We know you care how your personal information is used and shared, and we appreciate your trust in us.
By “personal information” we mean information that identifies you (such as your name, home address, billing address, telephone number, and email address). “Personal information” also includes descriptive information (such as your style preferences) if coupled with identifying information.
What personal information do we collect at our website?
There are two basic types of personal information collected at our website. There is the information you provide directly through the website and the information collected through technology.
Information Directly Provided by You
We may collect personal information directly from you such as your name, shipping address, billing address, telephone number, email address, credit card number, order information, and sizing information. This information may be collected in various places, such as when you visit our website and take any of the following actions:
- Place an order, fill out a form, subscribe to a catalog, or request information about our products and services;
- Participate in interactive features of the website or mobile applications, such as product reviews;
- Use a social media service such as our Facebook page or YouTube channel;

We may also collect information that you provide about people you know, such as a recipient’s contact information when you send a gift or order gift cards.
Information Collected through Technology
During a normal visit to our website, we may collect information such as the amount of time spent on our site, the pages you visit, clicks, page views, browser type and version, service-provider identification, and IP address. Such information is collected in the aggregate and is anonymous in that it does not contain information that directly identifies you. However, such information may become non-anonymous to the extent that it becomes coupled with personal information provided by you.
