This Privacy Statement was last updated June 2018.
Information about users collected at www.superpowerdogs.com (the Website, which term also includes mirror sites and future incarnations of this website) is collected by or on behalf of COSMIC PICTURE LIMITED, a company incorporated in England and Wales (registered number: 09177071) whose registered office is Red Lion House, via Red Lion, WC1R 4GB (referred to in this Privacy Statement as the Company, we or us). This privacy statement sets out the basis on which any personal information we collect from you via the Website will be stored and processed by us.
2. What information do we collect from you?
Initially, the information we shall ask you to provide will be limited to customary sign-up / registration information in order to receive our newsletter and other updates concerning the subject matter at the Website. However, as we may from time to time increase the services available from the Website we may collect additional information from you. For example, if in the future we provide the transaction facilities from the Website then we may keep records of those transactions.
Please be advised that any information you disclose through any forums or community sections of the Website (to the extent that we may in the future make such facilities available) becomes public information, available both to registered users of the Website and to the general public. In addition, when you choose to make a posting of this kind, certain personal information will then be available for other users to view and may be collected by third parties that do not adhere to our privacy protocols.
We also collect certain non-personal information from you when you access the Website, including:
- Internet protocol addresses (a number automatically assigned to your computer when you connect to the internet);
- the type of browser and operating system you are using;
- the language of your browser;
- any third party website from which your visit originated;
- the time, frequency and duration of your visits and your patterns of use on the Website.
When we gather this non-personal information together in a way that does not identify you (such as aggregating demographic data), that data is treated differently from personal data. This privacy statement concerns only how personal data will be treated.
Depending on your location, we may provide you with the ability to access, download, and request deletion of your personal information.
3. How do we use your information?
Primarily we shall use your personal data only to provide you with the newsletter / update services you have elected to receive. In the future, if we provide and you have requested to receive additional services, we may use your personal data to help us provide and improve those services.
We may also use your information for general “service administration purposes”, which means that we may contact you for reasons related to the services you receive, your activity on the Website, to deal with your requests and enquiries, or to customise your experience.
You may also submit images to us. By submitting images or any other material to us you grant us a non-exclusive license to reproduce, edit, change, copy, adapt and otherwise make such content available on the Website.
We may use third parties (e.g. Google analytics) to process your information on our behalf. We require that these third parties do not use your personal information for their own business purposes, unless you have explicitly consented to the use of your personal information in this way.
We may use your information to update you on the services and features that we provide on the Website and which we feel may be of interest you, unless you have specifically opted out of this feature through the ‘opt out’ procedures.
4. When will we contact you?
We may contact you in the following circumstances:
- in relation to any service, activity or online content you have signed up for in order to ensure that we can deliver the services to you;
- in relation to any correspondence we receive from you or any comment or complaint you make about our products or services;
- to invite you to participate in surveys about our services (always voluntary);
- for marketing purposes, where you have agreed to this.
You can choose to block all or some cookies through your browser, however, if you do block all or some cookies you may not be able to access all or parts of the Website.
We will only use your information for marketing purposes, or to promote new services, activities or online content where you have agreed to this.

We will hold your personal information on our systems for as long as you continue to receive updates from us.

9. Can you find out what information we are holding about you?
Under the Data Protection Act, you have the right to request a copy of the personal information we hold about you and to have any inaccuracies corrected. For further information, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Unfortunately, transmitting information via the Internet is never completely secure and you do so at your own risk. We will use all reasonable measures to ensure the security of any personal information held by us. All personal data you provide to us is stored on secure servers and any payment transactions made via the Website will be encrypted.
