2nd Chance collects two types of information from users: information provided by the user in order to receive requested information and information passively collected upon a user’s visit to our website (Google Analytics) that I use to track the website’s performance.


When a user visits my site, some information such as the visitor’s Internet protocol (IP) address, Internet service provider, operating system, the site from which the visitor arrived, and the time and date of the user’s visit may be collected automatically as part of the software operation of this website. This intake of information is not personally identifiable. Additionally, 2nd Chance is currently using Google Analytics, a web metrics service, to collect certain information automatically upon a user’s visit. For more information regarding Google Analytics, see Google’s privacy policy.


Users may provide 2nd Chance and Dr. Hines with non-personally and personally identifiable information in order to utilize certain services and retrieve information. Such instances may not be noticeable to the user and include, but are not limited to: filling out surveys, completing registration information, and submitting certain online forms.


2nd Chance and Dr. Hines use information collected solely for internal purposes, such as email correspondence or to see what pages are most frequently visited, in order to improve the website. Dr. Hines / 2nd Chance does not sell, trade, or rent your personal information to others.


All information provided to 2nd Chance is transmitted using SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encryption. SSL is a proven coding system that allows your browser to automatically encrypt, or scramble, data before you send it to me.

On a side note, Dr. Hines has very little control over the ads that Google chooses to run on his website. Be cautious about ads that claim to have experts standing by to answer your pet health questions. Dr. H. blocks as many of those ads as he can, but they tend to reappear under slightly different names.
